Shop Your Closet is a weekly series that is intended to help moms make the most out of what they already own. These styling tips aren't always groundbreaking, but with the sleeplessness and general chaos of life, they (hopefully) serve as helpful reminders for our less-inspired days.

This has been my old standby mom-uniform since R was born…almost four years ago now. And, uh, I actually bought this ancient sweater while pregnant with R. So yeah – well worn.
Needless to say, this outfit gets tired. I still put it on because it's warm, comfy, and stylish enough thanks to the cool boots and skinnies, but wow. I'm bored.
So I added socks. Tall socks peeking out of boots is a fast and easy update if you are getting tired of your skinnies. Socks with stripes lend a sporty vibe, cable knit socks go cozy-chic, and socks with a bright pop of color always look cool.

Because your socks are going over top of your jeans, layering them over tighter-fitting jeans works best. Or try leggings – this look was made for leggings.
