It may be the first official day of summer, but here in Minnesota, it’s still quite chilly. I caved and pulled my slippers out of hiding yesterday. Warmer temps are promised by the end of the week, but for at least a few more days, I’m sporting my spring #momiform. (I swore I made up the word momiform, and was really proud of my creativity. I’m devastated to learn that this is not the case.) As I’ve mentioned before, my stay-at-home mom wardrobe falls under these three categories 1) Practical, 2) Comfortable & 3) Simple. I’d like to think that the fourth adjective isn’t frumpy or boring, but if I’m honest, I’m probably approaching that area.
I am seriously considering doing a capsule wardrobe. Have you tried this? What are your thoughts?
My spring momiform fits all three of my criteria and is my go-to outfit for my days when I’m leaving the house. The splash of color from the scarf makes me feel like I’m not boring in a t-shirt and jeans. I may be kidding myself. I can go for walks with my kids, play at the park, run errands, and do kid yoga (this is a new favorite activity in our home) very comfortably in this outfit.
But there’s something about pants with a waistband, leather ballet flats and a scarf that make me feel better and more put together than if I were wearing leggings, a hoodie and tennis shoes.
Do you feel like you wear the same thing everyday? Do you like the simplicity or do you wish you had some more variety? I go back and forth.
