My Minimalistic Fall/ Winter Mom Uniform

Don’t get too excited. It’s shockingly similar to last year’s.

My “inspiration” was this outfit I saw on Pinterest (can’t find the original source):

To be honest, I usually wear this cardigan with a knit top, because I hate ironing the chambray one, and it’s less comfortable.

Old Navy has redeemed itself with this sweater.

I have a few other cotton tops that I also wear with this cardigan . . .

Like this (you’ve seen this outfit before).

Cotton Lands’ End sweater I picked up at a consignment shop recently. Not my favorite ever, but good enough to keep for this season at least.

This sweater/scarf combo is an old reliable for me. It probably looks better with the wider legged jeans, come to think of it.

I have two pairs of jeans that I wear regularly: Loft curvy straight leg jeans (I grin every time I write this . . . curvy straight . . . hah!) (currently 50% off), and an old pair of Levi bootcut/ trouser leg jeans. I also have two other pairs as backup.

Throughout the Fall, I wore these outfits with the stretchy cotton Lands’ End blazer I wrote about earlier.

I had some trouble getting a good shot of the blazer in action.

But I tried valiantly . . . .

So that’s it. Three sweaters, three cardigans, a few knit tops, two jeans, two pairs of boots, one pair of Sperry’s (really looking forward to replacing the latter). Pretty much what I wear every single day. I do have a heavier sweater for really cold outings, plus a law school hoodie for those days that just call for a sweatshirt.

It works pretty well for me. The thing no one tells you about minimalism though . . . it gets boooring. Especially when half of your sweaters are from 2009. Here’s hoping for a new year filled with many new sweaters . . . well, two or three anyway.

  1. I like that blue sweater/scarf combo best!! But all of htem are great. If you want more variety, you could always wear a skirt/tights with your boots instead of the jeans. I’ve been loving the look of high boots with a short (knee-length, not mini-skirt!) skirt and tights.

  2. Way to go wearing pretty necklaces on ordinary weekdays! I have so much fun jewelry (probably too much) but I always feel like a normal day isn’t special enough for fun jewelry. But that’s silly, of course.
