Beyond the Mom Wardrobe

I work three days a week, so three days out of the week I go beyond my mom wardrobe, i.e. an oversized t-shirt that serves the dual purpose of burp cloth and pants with an elastic waistband.

As much as I love the pajama look, I do appreciate the three days of the week I get to pull clothes out of my closet that actually come off of a hanger rather than out of an overstuffed dresser drawer (or an unfolded pile of laundry most often).

The look is simple. The pictures are courtesy of the hubby. The links are included below. Enjoy!

Madewell Whisper Cotton Turtleneck Top

This is a new item in my closet, and I am obsessed. The top is on sale at Nordstrom so hurry fast! I want this top in 1,000 colors — it is that good! It is t-shirt material which is an appropriate turtleneck for a Texas gal. If you can't snag your size on the Nordstrom website, check out direct through Madewell. The top is still a steal for $32.00.

Women's Military Vest - A New Day

The vest I have had for several years, and it is from Target. I wear it all of the time. It is a great way to dress up your simple closet staples. I was able to find a similar vest from Target, and I think you'll find yourself pairing it with almost everything you own.

I also have to mention a few other favorites.

My dog Dudley.

He really is the best.

The best, most favorite coffee mug.

It is from a local boutique/hardware store (only in a small town), Ford & Crew. You can follow them on Instagram if you don't believe me that a hardware store could sell stuff that is cute, cute, cute.

My new favorite momma jewelry.

You can read about my "T" initial bracelet from GLDN here. The other bracelet is the Elaina bracelet from Kendra Scott, and it is Tman's birthstone. This was another wonderful Christmas present from one of one of Tman's aunties and a dear friend. All the friends know to get me anything related to the babe, and I am obsessed.

Itzy Ritzy Boss Diaper Bag Backpack.

Mommas, this bag is a must!

78654 Pillow (and the cute mirror is picture #1)

The pillow you see on our bench is from a cute little shop called ReDid. I have a few of their great finds sprinkled throughout my home. Follow them on Instagram to take a peak for yourself at their gems. You have to stop by to shop, too. Then go next door for the best pie at the Bluebonnet Cafe. Really, do it.
