Surviving Motherhood Podcast

Closet Favorites: Leopard Shoes  |  Buffalo Plaid Top  |  Wit & Wisdom Jeans  |  similar Tory Burch Crossbody  |  Layered Necklace

Hi, friends! I had the huge honor of being a guest on the Surviving Motherhood podcast! Cris & Rachel are the hosts and they were so friendly and sweet. Even though that was the first time we talked [aside from lots of emails!], it felt like I was just catching up with old friends. Definitely check out their podcast & let me know what you think. It is SO GOOD for all of my mom friends!

They invited me on to chat a little bit about mom style, my closet staples, & other fashion favorites. Right up my alley huh? 😉 I wanted to put together an easily accessible place to shop all of the things I talk about on the podcast! These are seriously my tried & true favorites that I highly recommend to everyone!

 

5 closet staples

1. Jean Jacket

Wear this in any season! It’s the perfect layering piece for almost every outfit. This is my favorite!

2. A GOOD Pair of Jeans

I swear by Wit & Wisdom Absolution Jeans. They have elastic on the inside of the waistband. That means they don’t stretch out when you’re chasing kids all day, up and down, etc. I own white jeans, blue jeans, olive jeans and pink jeans from this brand!

3. Stripe Tee

I have lost count of how many I have in my closet. Whoops! They just pair perfectly with jeans, joggers, leggings, etc. It’s easy to do a little print mix to make you appear more ‘dressed up‘ for the day too! This is my favorite short sleeve one & this is my favorite long sleeve one.

4. Leopard Flats

Leopard is really a neutral in my book. I wear it all too often throughout the year but primarily in the Fall & Winter. A simple pair of flats is an easy way to incorporate the print into your wardrobe. Get these for major casual comfort or these for a bit more dressed up!

5. A Go-To Cardigan

I’m all about layers! And a good cardigan is a must as a mom! Throw it on over a stripe tee for a quick outfit! Get a good neutral so it will match lots of outfits. Currently my favorites are this waffle cardigan and this blazer cardigan!

 

 

Favorite Shirt to Wear Under Cardigans?

Stripes, stripes & more stripes! ha! All kidding aside, I love to pair something with either a print, graphic or a fun detail under my cardi.

 

Best Trends for Fall?

It’s hard to narrow down but I love leopard [duh], colorblock cardigans and jumpers!

 

One Trend I’m Over?

Crop tops! But was I ever really into this trend anyways?! ha!

 

Best Fashionable Flats / Mom Shoes?

I could list like 10 different pairs that I love. But I have to say the Keds x Kate Spade collection are my favorite. Obviously fashionable but oh, so comfortable too!! I have the leopard and the gold glitter. They have good solid color options too!

 

Favorite Patterns to Wear?

Have I made this clear already? lol Leopard, stripes and gingham!

 

Favorite Brand of Leggings?

I have several pairs of leggings but my go-to are from Lou & Grey! They are so soft and super affordable!

 

Favorite Accessory?

Earrings! I love a dainty necklace but if I could only put on one thing each morning, it would be earrings. I love statement earrings as much as the next blogger but those aren’t always practical as a mom. In fact, most days I am wearing something super lightweight- usually a stud. These are my favorite stud earrings right now. But I also love everything from Jane & Cope. They are leather earrings- SO light!!! And almost all of them are $12 + free shipping!

 

***If heavy earrings bother you AT ALL, get these Lobe Wonders! They are $8 for a big pack & they are seriously magic when it comes to relieving some of the weight!

 

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask! And be sure to check out the full podcast with Surviving Motherhood! xo

I love shopping at large department stores as much as the next girl, BUT there are two main reasons I end up clicking off their website sometimes… 1. I am SO overwhelmed by the hundreds of different brands they carry! And 2. SO many of the brands are way out of my price range! So I wanted to put together a list of my 7 favorite, affordable departments store brands. I’ve worn all of these brands on my Instagram & blog over the years. I rounded up a few of my favorite outfits featuring some of these brands!
