I came up with a sort of outfit system to hopefully keep me looking cute while running around with the kids but not too over the top try hard stay at home mom. I definitely have a momiform and I'm trying to keep it basic this year. As much as I love trends I tend more toward easy classic looks.
Here is what I usually wear: Jeans or leggings with a knit top. Then I pair it with an oversized sweater, scarf, necklace, or vest. For shoes I tend toward an easy flat, Toms, or a cute tennis shoe.
Does everyone else's #basic outfit sound like this?
I loved the sleeveless version of this over the summer and the long sleeve is just as good! It is fitted but has the perfect amount of stretch to make it comfortable.
I can never turn down a striped shirt and these Factory ones are my favorite every year! I loved the green and navy on this one so I had to have it.
I just discovered these this year and I'm obsessed!! These are seriously the best and I was able to snag them on sale at Gap for $13!! I got one in every color. It's the perfect long sleeve knit and it's got a long torso for us tall girls. It has the right amount of stretch to and is thick enough that it lays nicely. It also washes and dries perfectly. If you're in the market for a basic tee this fall and winter this is it.
Love love love these baggier tees for layering under sweaters and wraps. These were such a staple for me this summer and I'm so happy I can wear them into the winter.
Jeans & Leggings:
An easy basic black legging that you can dress up or down. I love how thick they are so you don't feel like you're just wearing yoga pants.
You all should know my love for these by now. They're the best leggings, can't beat them and the high waist is so flattering. Get a pair if you don't have any yet.
These are still my favorite jeans after two years! So flattering and comfortable and they don't stretch out too fast like a lot of jeans do.
These $59 jeans are my new current favorites!! After so many good reviews I was finally convinced to try them and I'm so happy I did. Super flattering and very comfortable! Plus they are under $100 which is such a win for me as far as jeans go. They do run big so make sure to size down.
Sweaters, Wraps, and Vests:
I love these BP oversized wrap sweaters. They're warm, cozy, and the price is always right, not too cheap but not crazy expensive either.
This wrap gives me all sorts of heart eye emojis. It's so soft and cozy that it makes me just want to stay in my yoga pants all day ;) It's a splurge but totally worth it in my opinion.
This sweater vest is a fun closet addition this fall and it's only $19 which makes it easy to pick up. Layered with a black or gray long sleeve tee and some booties would be adorable.
Another fun vest sweater vest to layer with a long sleeve tee or blouse. I love the cream color but the black is just as good too.
Last but certainly not least my forever favorite J.Crew Excursion Vest! I've had this vest in different colors and patterns for years. It truly is one of the most flattering, comfy vests out there. If you don't want to splurge for this one Factory makes one that is just as good for half the price!
Just got these booties and I'm so happy I finally did. I was looking for an everyday bootie with a low heel that I could run around town in with the kids and these are perfect.
These were sold out in my size but just came back in stock at Nordstrom so I'm going to give them a try! They look like another cute casual shoe that's easy to slip on, which is the name of the game these days.
I've had my eye on these Vince slip on shoes for the past month but couldn't get myself to splurge on them even though they're so cute, then searching Zappos last week I found these below and hit order!
These are more than half the price of the Vince ones and the reviews are just as good. I'm hoping they're as cute in person as they are online because I'm obsessed with them.
I'm a Toms lover through and through so when I saw these sneakers this fall I knew I had to have them. They're cute and more importantly super comfortable! They feel like a more comfy heavier version that the classic Toms.
A plaid scarf, I mean can one ever have too many. This was my first purchase this fall and I love the colors of it and I love that it's different from the blanket scarves I've been wearing in years past.
I love statement necklaces to pair with tees any time of year to dress up an outfit. Right now with small kids statement necklaces work out much better than long necklaces and this BB one above and the J.Crew Factory one below are two favorites.
Part of my momiform always includes a large tote bag for the 1000 things I need to carry for myself and the kids. I was big bag girl before kids and I'm even worse now that I carry stuff for three people. The bigger the better in my opinion!! The Le pliage and St. Anne tote are two of my favorites that are classics you can carry any time of year.
Do you have a basic fall uniform? Any staple pieces that you love that would be a good addition to my closet?
