Since becoming a mom, I have realized two things:
I recycle what I wear A LOT
I do laundry A LOT
With these two things I mind, I have decided to embrace a capsule style wardrobe of high quality basics mixed with some affordable more seasonal items to develop a mom and Florida friendly fall capsule wardrobe.
That means I don’t do heavy jackets or low necklines that flash the goods when picking up small people. I do embrace sensible shoes, comfortable pants and dresses with a little length. Dry clean only? Nope, not an option. Gimme all the light, layering pieces!
A few notes about my favorite pieces:
Old Navy Tees + Tanks
The Luxe line of shirts are super soft. They’re also surprisingly durable for the price tag. They don’t fade quickly, and will easily last wash after wash.
Distressed Black Jeans vs. Dark Wash Denim
I love the versatility with these two kinds of pants. Sure, they are similar but once you change the shoes with each or roll the cuff, you have a completely different look. I have a distressed black ankle pant and then a basic skinny jean in a dark wash. They’re different enough that the end looks stand out.
Typically I opt for pants when I have the boys with me, but sometimes I like to feel a bit more feminine. When that’s the case, I choose dresses with length and a higher neckline. Again, changing the shoes and adding outwear give you a brand new look.
I will always be falling back to sandals (hello, I am a FL girl), but these sneakers + slides give the aire of fall while still being FL heat friendly. The perforations on the sneaker and open back on the slides allow air flow. I aways wear footy socks with the sneakers just to help with the sweat/stink.
This is definitely a splurge, but it is so worth it. I am a bag lady. Not the homeless kind, the obsessive kind. I haven’t purchased another bag since I got this one nearly a year ago. It goes with everything. If you don’t want to get it yourself, put it on the top of your holiday gift list.
