℅ Lulu*s boots (ONLY $49!) and fringe bag; Target jeans and hat, old (option); Old Navy tee; Blanknyc moto jacket (save option). Wearing Bare Minerals Moxie lip color in “Lead the Way.”
One of my favorite ways to dress lately (um, always?), is to take really basic items that I’ve had forever (vee neck gray tee shirt, black skinny jeans), and update them for Fall with REALLY fun add ons. Like over the knee boots! I’ve been wanting to try this trend for awhile now, but had a hard time finding options for less than $150. I wanted a simple enough pair with no huge bells and whistles, just black slouchy (faux) leather and a simple silhouette. I was so thrilled to find a pair on Lulus.com for under $50, and once I tried them on I KNEW they would be a staple in my closet. I plan on pairing them with simple skinny jeans like above, leggings and tunics, as well as baby doll dresses and tights. As a mama of two small kids, I find it fun to add in pieces that make me stand out and look cool, but fit into my lifestyle. I mean, I still have to do school drop offs and playgroup and soccer games, you know? And I can do all this stuff in a look like this.
It’s funny. Some days I really go for it and dress for me. I throw on a trendy fringe bag, over the knee boots, and (a new fave) moto jacket, and feel great. Other days? I DO wear yoga pants and fleece jackets and sneakers. Both those sides are ME, and I enjoy having the option to dress up or down depending on my mood. I don’t think style has to suffer after becoming a mama, I just know I have to be comfortable as well. A simple jean and tee is comfort to the nth degree, especially when I can throw on some trendy seasonal colors (burgundy!) in my lip, nail and accessory colors.
