We all have that one thing that we refuse to give up after we have kids. Whether it's a great pair of sunglasses, a gorgeous purse or stylish jeans, there’s one thing that keeps us feeling like more than just a mom. We asked real moms to share their must-haves and here's what they offered up.

Great jeans

Signature^ Sherri Kuhn, allParenting writer:

My absolute must-have is jeans. I wear them with flip-flops, boots, heels, wedges... practically live in them. Are they trendy? Not so much... but I think it's become part of my look over the years.

Designer^ Rachel Voorhees, who writes a blog by the same name:

My signature style must-have is my designer jeans. Is that too petty? I refuse to wear mom jeans. I like nice jeans that make my backside look good.

Comfy skirts

Effortless^ Katie Sluiter, who blogs at Sluiter Nation:jersey skirt

I am all about the Jersey fold-over skirts. I may have four (and this one, in particular). Basically I need comfortable and easy, but still makes me feel cute. Maybe that is also why I am in love with skirts and dresses. So easy and comfy, but still pretty!

Tell us!^ So, accessories, shoes, jeans and comfy skirts top the list of favorite pieces to help keep our sense of style. Now, it's your turn. What one thing helps keep you feeling stylish?
