With being a new mom, I have been forced to cut back my “get ready time” to just minutes now.   When it comes to getting dressed I have found the most time saving formula is to have a few go-to “uniforms”.  Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel everyday with a fabulous new look, I simply repeat a version of an outfit I most likely wore earlier in the week.  This week, I stuck to black and white.

black & white

This uniform consists of leggings (worn as tights), a fitted jersey mini skirt, an over-sized sweater, infinity scarf, flats or ankle boots (I’m obsessed with these cute little striped flats from The Gap..WANT!), a cross-body bag (so I can be hands free), a pair of pretty stud earrings, and my fancy little Alice & Olivia Starbucks mug (Momma needs some caffeine).   It’s an easy palette to mix and match. Adding  little gold or silver touches helps add a bit of shine to your look.

You don’t have to be a Mom to create a uniform for yourself.  You gals on a budget…this is a great cost effective way to maximize your wardrobe.

 

At only 5 weeks until my due date (where has the time gone???) I definitely feel myself slowing down.  I’m not venturing off too far on my own, I think I’ve attended the last of events for now, and I’m now busy nesting (and resting when I can).  Lately even the simplest things like getting dressed in the morning or putting on my shoes leave me short of breath and needing a nap.  Working from home is such a blessing.  I adore all my cozies right now and spend most of my days in leggings, jersey, and knits.  Sure I merchandise it up a bit with some accessories but comfortable and casual are the best ways to describe my current look.  How do you dress up your casual clothes?

One of my favorite things about Fall are cozy knits.  They are the ultimate in comfort and can look quite chic with the right accessories. The knit dress is a perfect transition piece.  I start with bare legs, flats, and a blazer and as the weather cools off I add tights and switch to boots.  This striped one from Old Navy Maternity has a casual feel to it but the neutral colours allow me to dress it up a bit.  I will wear this dress for anything from a dinner out to work meetings.  What is your favorite thing in your Fall wardrobe?

Yeh, it’s Friday!  We West Coast peeps are in for a weekend of beautiful summer weather and lots of fun things to do around Vancouver. I have my parents coming for a visit this weekend, so I anticipate a lot of laughs, cooking, and time on the patio.  I hope you all have an amazing weekend.  Happy Friday! xoxo
