Picking out an outfit that I manage to wear all day can sometimes be a struggle. As a SAHM I’m always on the move. Between maintaining the household, chasing my son, running errands and going on play dates – I’m always on the go! The key to putting together an outfit that I don’t change out of by nap time is comfort. That goes for everyone, whether you’re at work or keeping track of a toddler you want to be comfortable throughout the day.
To make life easier I try to lay out my outfit the night before. I check the weather forecast first and lay out a few options based on the high’s & low’s. For instance, last night I laid out my outfit for today’s activities of going to the Animal Park & running errands. I needed an outfit that would look nice, but still be functional while walking around outside. I chose pinstriped straight leg pants with two top options, one being a white lace tank and the other a basic navy V-neck tee.
Deciding on which top to wear is based on my choice of accessories. I love to combine plain V-neck tees with statement necklaces. By adding a bold necklace to a basic top it becomes more than “just a t-shirt”. However, since we were going to be outside all morning I chose to wear the lace tank. I know there’s a blog out there somewhere that advises against mixing fabrics & patterns but I think it adds depth, plus in fashion there are no real “rules”. I paired my outfit with my favorite two-tone Tory Burch studs. The pastel pink complements the blue in the pants and the gold coordinates with my sandals.
The vertical stripes in my pants create long lines and add height to my 5″ stature; always a plus! I chose to cuff the bottom of my pants showing off my gold ankle-wrap sandals. And there you have it, a comfortable outfit that took little effort and lasted all day!
