With all of the Christmas goodies already hitting stores, it feels like I’m getting this fall style post in just under the wire…but let’s be honest, there are still at LEAST three more weeks that should be categorized as fall ;)
Have you heard the term “momiform?” It’s slang for “mom uniform” and is a concept I remember cringing about before becoming a mom myself. There was no way I’d want to wear the same types of clothes every day! But…sure enough, I quickly realized that some outfits (anything dry clean only, scratchy, too tight to sit on the floor in, or in need of frequent readjusting) made me feel less confident and capable as a mom, while others (something comfortable but still cute, easy to move around in, and always machine washable) made me feel like I could do this. It’s funny how a just-right outfit can have that effect, don’t you think?
The look I’m wearing in this post is a perfect example of my fall momiform. The base of a soft striped tee (only $24 and comes in seven colors) and leggings is simple, but functional, and it all felt stylish and put-together with the addition of my field jacket (a splurge, but a classic staple that is worth every penny!), cute sneakers, and my favorite sunglasses. I’d recommend each item to any mama reading this!
Thank you so much to Amber of Six Foot Photography for these photos! I’m so grateful to have Charlie’s pucker captured forever :) Plus, we’ve since gotten his hair cut, and these photos make me miss his unruly baby locks (though don’t worry–curls are still intact)!
Mama friends, do you have a go-to momiform? What are some of your staple pieces? I’d love to hear!
