I have found that I literally am wearing/rotating about 10% of my closet lately.These drab winter days are nearing an end... thank goodness... which will hopefully bring about more color, pattern and hopefully more dresses and skirts that I miss.
Don't get me wrong, I love my coats and hats and boots, but by March, who isn't ready to shed all that extra coverage?! This past weekend was exceptional pre-spring weather! Hot almost, and I was so excited to put the girls in tank dresses.
This is an outfit you would typically have found me wearing on the nicer winter days. This is my uniform of choice for story times, Target runs, park days and play dates. I would love to invest in a new pair of denim, but I am still shedding some pounds and then we have summer, so I may wait for next fall to find a pair. It may take me until then to save up for a good pair too. Always invest in good denim.
So here's my "Momiform"
1. Skinny jeans 2. Some sort of longer top (preferably a button up or a long fitted tee that can be pulled up or down) 3. Jacket/Blazer 4. Ankle boots
Accessories: A long scarf for extra coverage during breast feedings, and gives my babe something to play with other than my hair, earrings, and I love to top off with a hat (on non-windy days).
This top, a chambray button down by Mossimo (Target brand), has been a great go-to piece during both of my past pregnancies, it's an XL, and afterwards. The black ankle length jeans were a steal sale find from J. Crew a couple of years ago, and they have still managed to keep their dark ebony color. The boots were a purchase from last fall, by Via Spiga, and the jacket was a thrift score from a week ago. The tag on the blazer reads, "Christian Dior," but upon further investigation, I remembered that the true Dior would most likely only have, "Dior" on the tag. Also, it says it was made in the U.S.A. Authentic Christian Dior would most likely be made in an atelier in France. Who cares, it is a great fit, the pockets are handy, and you can't tell from these photos, (hello 4 o'clock sun) but it has a little silver sparkle in it. Did I mention the great fit! Key to point out here when thrifting, never gloss over something because of the size on the tag! This jacket is a size 12. It is all about fit. Try things on!
So there you have it. These are my four staples that make up an easy uniform to throw on and look somewhat calculated and stylish while pushing a huge double stroller and spilling a cold Americano.
What's your daily "uniform?" Have any pieces you find yourself wearing the majority of your week?
