Six Essentials for Every Mom’s Wardrobe

6 Essential Pieces for Every Moms Wardrobe

1. The Cover-up: Moms need quick cover-ups. Something cute and comfortable to mask all of the spills, stains, and all around messes those sticky fingers have placed all over you today. Wear your tee around the house in peace, then slip a cover-up on when you leave so no one else has to know your kids had spaghetti-o’s for lunch and now you’re wearing most of it. A cover-up can be a simple hoodie, a luxurious cardigan, a modern trench or even a tried & true jean jacket depending on the outfit or season you’re dealing with.

Jean Jacket by Mango ~ 49.90

2. The Comfy Tee: The little black dress of a Mom’s wardrobe, find a comfy tee that you love and buy them in EVERY color. Target and Old Navy have great, affordable options and I’m loving all the redesigns I’ve seen popping up all over Blog Land recently. {I’ll be featuring my favorites in a separate post very soon}
Tee Featured Here:
Ashen Lilac Sheer Tee
from Old Navy ~ $10.50

3. A Great Bag: Mary Poppins had the mother-of-all-great bags and if you’ve got kids I’ll bet you have a bag that holds everything too. Moms know they need to carry lots of stuff and you never know just what you’ll need while you’re out. You’ll need a bag that holds – snacks, sunscreen, distractions (toys or books), diapers, pull ups or a change of clothes depending on your child’s age, keys, wallet, cell phone, just to name a few. Let’s be honest, this list could go on FOREVER. Look for a bag that has small, easy-to-reach pockets to hold your keys and cell phone so they don’t get lost in the bottomless pit that will become your bag.

Poppy Print Tote from The Gap ~ $39.50

4. The Go-To Skirt: More flattering for Moms Like Us then shorts, capris or even jeans… a great skirt can be the workhorse of your wardrobe. It’s cute, its comfy, it hides most of your mommy flaws (thighs we’re not so proud of and of course the infamous pooch) PLUS, it instantly makes you look like you put some thought into your outfit. Shhh, I won’t tell anyone that all you really did was swap your PJ pants for your skirt on the way out the door. Nothing is quicker to slip on and if you find the right one, it will make you feel more feminine and beautiful to boot. {I puffy heart you oh so lovely skirt}

5. Slip-On Shoes: Let me repeat —> S-L-I-P O-N Shoes, Did you catch that? I said S-L-I-P O-N Shoes. No lacing, no buckling, no stepping on the back of your heel and wiggling as you fall around the room and trip over your kids. Just slide them on and you’re ready to go, Easy peasy.
Slip-Ons Featured Here:
Sanuk Macrame Thong from Endless ~ $25.50

6. Cheap Jewelry: Moms need cheap jewelry. Kids have a hard time differentiating between cheap jewelry and precious jewelry. For that reason alone, I live by a strong rule. Only wear jewelry you’re OK with losing, breaking, or having ripped off. {I’m talking earrings, necklaces, and bracelets – I still wear my wedding/engagement rings} I speak from experience, I’ve lost six necklaces to my darling daughter and now only wear Silver Chain Necklaces I get on Amazon for less than $10.
Jewelry Featured Here:
Beaded Necklace from Kohls ~ $11.20 and Bracelets from Forever 21 ~ 5.50
