Happy Friday everyone,
Every single day spent with the baby flies so fast! What I like about this week is charming flowers, delicious cakes and macarons, and of course, cute baby items that always make me smile.
Hello my lovelies, as you know I’m a new mommy now and taking some time off from my blog and I’m so grateful to my blogging friends who help me out for the last couple of weeks!!! Are you ready for another amazing guest blogger? Today Alison (you may remember her from my previous post with fashion illustration) is sharing her fashion secrets about wardrobe essentials for moms.
Hello pretties! I’m Alison and I blog over at Get Your Pretty On where I provide style inspiration for moms. I love translating trends into mom-friendly fashion. As a mom of three, I’ve been stuck in my own mom rut and know how hard it can be to take care of yourself when you’re busy taking care of everyone else. But being a mom shouldn’t mean losing yourself! That’s why I started Get Your Pretty On.
I’m so happy to be guest posting for Elena today. As a new mom, it’s essential to have some wardrobe basics on hand to make getting ready as easy as possible. When moms find out that I’m a mom style blogger, one of the first things they say is “can you dress me?” So I came up with a quick list of essentials for getting the basics of effortless dressing in place.
Today I’m going to share those outfit basics – the go-to pieces that I keep coming back to over and over again. These are the tried and true essentials that comprise my own wardrobe. All of the elements can be combined to create countless looks for virtually any mom activity.
1. Dark Wash Skinny Jeans
Universally flattering, dark wash skinny jeans in stretchy fabrics build the base for so many different looks. They can easily be dressed up or down by swapping out flats for heels and cardigans for blazers. One of my favorite brands is Kut from the Kloth. They have the perfect rise, not too high or too low and they offer just the right amount of stretch.
What can I say? I have a whole closet full of cardigans in every color of the rainbow (and some prints) that get worn on an almost daily basis. Combine them with scarves and statement necklaces. Throw them over a dress or printed blouse. The possibilities are endless. Some of my favorite cardigans are these cotton summerweights from J. Crew Factory.
3. Fun Flats
My go-to shoes for every mom activity are cute and comfy flats. Leopard goes with virtually everything and adds a little bit of fun to each outfit.
4. Tees and Tanks
The basis for building every look – you can never have enough quality t-shirts and tank tops to layer under everything. J. Crew has great high quality basic knits.
5. Scarves and Statement Jewelry
Easily add style to any look with colorful printed scarves and statement jewelry. These pieces create an instant outfit without breaking the budget.
