Loving the Daily Mom Uniform On Gywneth’s Paltrow’s Website


Sweater_dress_bootsGwyneth Paltrow started a website called goop.com.  It's pretty fantastic.  Each week, she releases a new issue (you can sign up for the weekly updates here).  She covers cooking, travel, workouts, what to watch, some thoughts on life, and, of course, fashion.  

She only has a couple of fashion posts at the moment, but they are definitely worth a read.  One of her posts shows how to accessorize a little black dress, but my favorite post is the one where she talks about the importance of establishing a daily uniform.  A daily uniform helps keep her looking chic with enough ease to get through the job of mom – making pancakes in the AM, running to a meeting at school, etc.  I love the concept of a daily uniform for moms (and will brainstorm some ideas and post them here later) and I love her picks for a daily uniform.  I ALSO love that her daily uniform revolves around black leggings, which, as you know, are something I have only recently come to appreciate.  For more legging ideas, see our Leggings? Yes! post. 



  1. I love this look, too, though I have yet to wear anything like it. Do you have suggestions for great, flat tall boots like Gwyneth’s, preferably at a lower price point? Thanks!

  2. Emily – I have been trying to post a response, but am having technical difficulties with Typepad. It turns out that my response was too long. Oops. My response will be broken up into several comments. So sorry for the delay!
    Sure! Your best bet at the moment is to go to piperlime.com. They have a great selection and offer free shipping and free return shipping.
    Gwyneth’s boots are very classic, very sheeny and expensive looking. In my opinion, your best pick is the Corso Como Starlight Boot for $198: http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=19797&vid=1&pid=705345&scid=705345002

  3. For a similar look at a lower price point, try either the BCBG Girls Frank boot for $169: http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=19797&vid=1&pid=705484&scid=705484012
    or the Ciao Bella Toni boot for $149: http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=19797&vid=1&pid=691358&scid=691358002
    If you want to go even cheaper, check out boots by Rocket Dog, Wanted or Report. These tend to be a little more trendy, less classic, but are all under $100. One other word of caution – boots this cheap are rarely leather, so they won’t be as warm, and also won’t let your feet breathe. But if you aren’t sure how committed you are to this look, experimenting with a cheap boot might be a smart way to start.
    I like the rocker vibe of these black Rocket Dog boots: http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=19797&vid=1&pid=705312&scid=705312002
