It’s always around this time of year that my usual go-to sweatshirt and jean/leggings combo, starts to feel a little, well, stale. Blah, even. Which, on top of chilly days, limited daylight, and lack of vitamin D, doesn’t help carpe diem, if you know what I mean!?
If you’re feeling the same, here’s three ways to make sure your basic mom outfit is adding to the good vibes for your day!
4 WAYS TO SPRUCE UP A CASUAL WARDROBE
- ADD A STAPLE OR STATEMENT PIECE: Whether you’re adding a layer that’s timeless and elevated (think French girl staples, like a trench coat, etc.) or a pop of color or fun (think bright beanie, edgy boots, etc.) it adds depth to your everyday basics and makes them feel special.
- ACCESSORIZE, BOO: Classic hoop earrings, a fancy purse, layered necklaces or bracelets, trendy sunnies, etc., will do the trick!
- PLAY WITH YOUR HAIR AND MAKEUP: Putting our best foot forward goes way beyond the clothes we’re wearing. Try having fun with your hair or adding some lipstick to your makeup routine.
- HAPPY THOUGHTS: How we’re feeling inside often shows up on the outside so practice some gratitude, kindness, and optimism when getting ready in the morning… or afternoon, lol. Don’t forget that green smoothie and water, too!
WEARING | sweatshirt (wearing small – perfect length to wear with leggings and bike shorts!), jeans (similar for less $), sneakers, coat (similar or another option: wore this camel coat all weekend and got a million compliments – it’s on sale, wearing small), purse (the woven one is sold out but linked to same size and style!)
GRIFF | similar sweatshirts (one, two, three… also love this one), sweats, sneakers
Look at that face! Love me some Griff, even when he’s being naughty. His siblings have been calling Johan and I out for not following through with consequences we give him and they are not wrong. Oi. Obsessed with you Griff!
What we wear should add to our day, not take away from it! Do you agree?
Love these simple ideas to elevate a winter wardrobe when we’ve got a case of the “blah’s.” PS whatever you’re doing with your hair is fantastic! It looks so shiny & healthy.
thank you so much! xo
