Jeans, a Tee, top knot, flats, these Gucci beauties and my go-to lipcolour, MAC Matte Lipstick Velvet Teddy– that’s my daily mom uniform. The choice of which jeans and Tee I’ll wear depends on how bloated I feel and whether or not the laundry was done sometime that week. The struggle is real, folks, BUT now that I have my fancy pants (not) mom capsule wardrobe figured out, it’s all I wear on a daily basis and its working well! I’m comfortable, reasonably stylish and, more importantly, well equipped to chase a maniacally-giggling 20 month old through the aisles at Target. Win-win, right?
The good news is, this isn’t just a mom uniform, it can work for everyone! There’s a million and one styles of jeans to choose from, or, you know, sweatpants if that’s how you roll (because let’s face it, that’s how we all roll some days), and if you’re feeling extra fancy, throw on a button up shirt instead of a T. When it comes to shoes, I rotate between three pairs: black lace-up flats, nude buckle up almost-flats, or my trusty Mossimo floral sneakers from Target. A good cross-body is also a must because you can just fling it on and go (I have a Michael Kors one that I love but I can’t seem to find the exact purse anymore so here’s another cross-body that’s close). I can’t stand shoulder bags; maybe mine are just abnormally rounded but the straps will not stay on my shoulders and I need my hands to be free (see above note about chasing toddler).
Anyhow, here’s a round up of some new, low-maintenance pieces for my mom uniform that I’ve got my eye on for Spring.
