Jessica Alba covers puke and poop stains with scarves

Jessica Alba accessorises with scarves to avoid walking around with "a big puke or poo stain" on her top.

The stunning star is mother to daughters Honor, three, and seven-month-old Haven. Jessica recently announced her plans to write her first book, where she shares tips on parenting.

The brunette beauty has become an expert at being practical while remaining on-trend, and has revealed one of her most important style staples when it comes to being a mother-on-the-go.

"I wear scarves, mostly because it's an accessory that can dress up an outfit, so you're not just wearing jeans, a T-shirt, and sneakers. But it's also because if my baby has an accident - and I'm holding the baby - I can cover that accident up! So I'm not walking around with a big puke stain or poo stain on my shirt!" she exclaimed in an interview with

"Knowing that I don't have time to go home and change, and really, I don't have the space, time, or capacity to pick out five different changes of outfits for my car - it's enough to remember my baby's change of clothes.

"I have funny little stories about how I learned that lesson [in the book]."

The 30-year-old actress has explained what kind of tips are included in her tome. Jessica has joked that many small things are taxing - like choosing a bag to carry things for her baby.

"It's like, what do you pack in your diaper bag that's easy - do you even have a diaper bag? Maybe you just carry a large purse. Maybe you use your purse instead of buying 50 different diaper bags knowing that your purse will probably go better with your outfits," she mused.

"So how do you pick a diaper bag that's neutral and will go with everything? And what do you really need in that diaper bag?

"In the beginning, I was stuffing my child's entire nursery into the diaper bag and breaking my neck and was like, 'Oh, wait, I forgot my wallet. What's going on?'"
