Years ago, I loved sharing my teacher wardrobe (you can still find it in the “closet” section of my archives, although it’s from so long ago I doubt any of the links work anymore) and it involved lots of skirts, dresses, and heels. As much as I love a good reason to dress up, my style is much more casual since I now primarily spend my days at home with my babies.
These days, I have a pretty standard “uniform” of a casual top, skinny jeans, and low booties or sneakers. I love simple patterns like stripes and plaid or a single-color shirt with an interesting detail like a roll or tie. Today I just thought I’d show you a snippet of some of the outfits I’ve been wearing lately. And you’ll also see a lot of what my kids wear these days because apparently I only take mirror selfies while holding a child ha!
I still love a good pair of heels but they’re almost never practical now so I’m almost always in my booties or my trusty Converse.
I’m also partial to leopard print flats that I’ve had for years – they just give a little something extra to an outfit.
Here’s an example of the same outfit worn twice with a few changes to elevate it a bit from everyday wear to a church outfit. I ran errands in jeans and a messy bun (with a cute little polka dot scrunchie that is really hard to see in the picture).
For church, I swapped out the jeans for dress pants and curled my hair – not a huge change but just enough to take the outfit a step above. (Side note: it’s probably time I invested in a better pair of true winter boots because I literally wore these cut out booties on Sunday when it was snowing and sleeting ha! This Midwest girl is used to it but still…)
I even kept the same casual top-skinny jeans-booties uniform for our recent axe-throwing date night!
On the rare occasion that I want to really dress up, I love choosing something from Rent the Runway! This dress was a fun choice for Justin’s holiday work party.
And of course, if I’m being honest, I’m a stay-at-home mama so there are many winter days where my outfits look like this:
There is something so cozy about a winter day inside – I love staying in warm sweats and will always always always be wearing either fuzzy socks or my trusty slippers. Every winter wardrobe needs a good pair of warm and cozy loungewear!
Be sure to come back to the blog on Friday because I’m finally sharing our bathroom reveal!! It’s so good. I’m seriously in love and cannot wait to share the transformation with you!
