Moms always talk about their “mom uniform” (myself included) and there’s a reason. If you’re running around with a kid and picking them up and getting puked on and such, you want something comfortable and not too fussy.
My mom uniform is usually yoga pants (I live in lululemon align crops but have heard that Zella leggings are incredible and super affordable so just bought my first pair on major sale!) and a loose tank top/tee shirt/sweater.
I don’t like to look like a total slob so I usually wear black on black, black on navy, or black on white for a cleaner lewk. That said, I get sick of it sometimes, and even though I work from home, there are days when I just want to look and feel pretty. On those occasions I’ll usually throw on white jeans or shorts with a striped tee in the summer, and dark jeans or leggings with a sweater or my favorite fleece in the winter.
But then a dress like this comes along and how can I not put it on? It feels very Mad Men to me.. I wore it the other day to daycare pick up the teachers were like woah you actually have real clothes?!?
When I do dress up in something like this, I try to make sure it’s not something that I have to constantly pull up or where the sleeves fall off, and the longer length is helpful when I’m sitting on the floor with Amalia.
What is your mom uniform? PS starting in August I’m going to be posting one outfit each week in which I “shop my closet” and re-wear pieces I’ve already posted about. If you have anything you want me to post, let me know!
