I love me some trendy fashion and have always prided myself in putting myself together stylishly, BUT since becoming a mom, my time is tight and my focus is elsewhere. Much like all other personal areas of my life before baby, my style has definitely been put on the back burner. With that said, my daughter is 15 months and I feel like I’m running out of excuses to be leaving the house very clearly having put zero effort into my outfit. LOL Now, with that said, I don’t actually plan on changing the amount of effort I put into getting dressed any time soon. I just want to start looking like I put in a whole lot more than I did, ya feel me?
My current winter uniform is a great way to step it up from jeans/leggings and a sweater. Don’t worry, you’ll still be comfy and warm. You’ll just look freaking cute, too! Grab those wool tights or long johns and tee/cardigan combo or cozy sweater and stock up on some printed maxi skirts! I got this cute leopard one at the end of Fall and have worn it every week since. Note: While there’s certainly a winter chill in the air, I do still live in LA so no need for long johns for me! #sorrynotsorry If I was back home in Canada, my long johns/tights would go totally unseen if I kept the skirt buttoned all the way down. Buttons on a maxi skirt are a nice option for transitioning to warmer weather because when summer hits, you simply unbutton the skirt to just above the knee to show off a little leg and catch a nice breeze!
In these photos, I paired my maxi with a basic white tee, black cardigan and Dr. Martens combat boots, which are great for snow. I wear them every time I’m in Canada for the holidays! I also love pairing this skirt with a band tee and long cardigan, any cozy knit sweater or one of my many comfy cropped cotton crewneck sweatshirts. It’s the laziest way to dress up your winter uniform and it’s as comfy to wear as sweatpants!
