It’s here!! We kicked off our Everyday Style Series on Instagram last week (@shanachristine). The idea is that we’ll post a daily outfit of what we actually wore – whether it’s sweatpants, Uggs, or lipstick (some days are better than others) to Insta, then follow up with a quick summary on The Mom Edit once a week.
While ALL outfits on The Mom Edit are things we have, actually, really and truly worn and loved, this series is intended to be a little more…haphazard. For example, I don’t always nail the school pick-up outfit when I’m running horribly late because THAT DAY was the day Pax decided to nap. But instead of editing through our hits and misses, we’ll, uh, own up to them. This is nothing fancy, you guys. Just our everyday stuff.
So. Here are the everydailies for me last week.
Easily my favorite weekend look right now: soft sweater, black skinnies, converse. It’s what I wore BEFORE that storm hit. (Wearing super thick wool socks, too…which is the WHOLE POINT of hightops if you ask me.)
sweater: Vince Camuto Eyelash Knit Sweater (Small petite for reference)
sneaks: Converse Black Hightops
Mix It Like It’s Hot
Pretty standard for me: destroyed denim, Uggs, and stripes. Added in a little print mixing just because. (I often wear scarves and beanies inside the house. I’m sometimes too warm for a sweater, but too cold for just a shirt and besides, scarves indoors = fancy. winwinwin)
Rocking the school drop-off line. (Snort. I AM SO SICK of winter jackets.)
shirt: Rag and Bone (sold out) but BB Dakota’s Hannelore Striped Shirt is very similar
scarf: old JCrew men’s (nice and big) – The current J.Crew cashmere men’s scarf is an additional 40% already reduced prices (and comes in a few colors)
jacket: Lole, from a few years ago….Lole’s Fastness jacket has the same contrast zipper
That Time I Tried To Get Out Of The House
I got all dressed for a Barre3 class…but then Pax was sick. WOMP WOMP
I suppose the good news is that I didn’t need to change out of my workout gear.
sweatshirt: Sol Angeles Small Town Pullover – on sale at Shopbop (size S for reference)
tank: old Adidas – this Nike tank is similar (I always buy up a few sizes for a looser fit)
leggings: Zella Live-In Leggings in Space Dye
boots: Ugg (long gone), but Steve Madden’s Troopa boot is beloved by all.
scarf: old, but this Faux-Fur Cowl from Mark and Graham would go a long way to make up for the fact that IT’S STILL WINTER.
That Time I Attempted To Disguise My Pajamas For School Drop Off
I think it worked OK. Thank goodness for skinny sweatpants – they actually look decent with combat boots.
pajamas: random old tee and Sol Angeles Waves Pants
boots: Ugg (long gone), try Steve Madden’s Troopa boot
Black is The New Black
Lemme tell ya something: Black is always the new black. #theworldaccordingtoS #eyerollshutupS
But whoa that sweater needs a little TLC. I need to bust out my trusty sweater shaver. (Remember this article? I demonstrated its powers. Prepare to be wowed.)
sweater: old cashmere sweater…but HOLY MOLY this amazing Equipment turtleneck sweater (cashmere, in black) is on crazy sale for $119! Also, White+Warren has a really dark charcoal cashmere in a similar swingy turtleneck shape, also on sale.
The Day I Gave Up
In my defense, it was cold, I had a cold, also it was Friday, soooo…. #longestweekever
But here’s the thing. This outfit was created because I just, you know, grabbed something. And then I stared at the ice pink / camel / bright orange / magenta mess staring at me and I had three thoughts:
1. Beanie (Just kidding – it was already on my head. Duh.)
2. OTK Boots
3. I actually like this nonsense
I’ll call it a win.
sweater: Equipment Asher V-Neck Sweater (size XS for reference – it runs really big) – Gang, this sweater is currently 40% off. You can easily nurse in it and I have been wearing it to death. As I type is it in the washing machine, getting the mix of frosting / snot / something orange washed off. I use these delicate wash bags and wash on cold.
v-neck tee (under the sweater): The only reason I even mention this (because you can barely see it) is that sometimes, when layering v-neck tees and sweaters they look…dorky. Or off. Or something. It’s like the v-neck doesn’t line up properly. Anyway, I really like AEO’s longline v-necks because they tend to plunge, making it easier to both layer and nurse. They are not kind on a post-partum pooch, but they layer beautifully. (And size up for maximum plunge and nursing friendliness.)
jeans: Levi 535 denim leggings in Indigo Sky (Amazing on ALL body types, and best for OTK boots! But try a few different sizes – it’s juniors sizing and really inconsistent)
OTK boots: old Nine West…but you guys, a ton of you have bought these Blondo waterproof over-the-knee boots and have sent me emails raving about how fabulous they are!! I’m thrilled you like them – I thought they were pretty special, too. (You can see them here on Teri – very last pic.)
scarf: Theodora & Callum – I’m actually renting this from Rent The Runway – trying out their unlimited subscription. More later. But this scarf??? Is fabulous. They’re expensive, but I found some similar Theodora & Callum scarves on sale for 50% off: paisley print scarf, bengal print scarf or aztec print scarf (all in similar colors).
