Winter Wardrobe Staples

My winter wardrobe has gotten so much more basic and neutral over the last couple of years. When I became a mom three years ago I completely changed as a person; my full attention was on Sophia and being the best mom I could. And lets just say my wardrobe has become more versatile and easy going.

And can I say comfortable!

Before motherhood, I worked as a CSR Rep, I wore high heels, hair and make-up was always done…lets just say I was put together nicely. A few years later I traded the high heels in for flat shoes and messy buns. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

When you are a single mom on a budget you have to reuse some of your clothes from the previous seasons and know how to make them last. I picked out a few of my favorite worn staples and new staples to my winter wardrobe and let’s just say….some Ugg boots that are way out of my price line, but I did have ones that were very similar three years ago and loved them! They lasted for three years…all winter long…and I wore them every… single…day!

The jacket is from Old Navy, my mom surprised me and bought it for me this past weekend. I was complaining to her how badly I need a winter jacket that covers my back side, it was on sale for a really amazing price. It’s warm, long and so pretty in person; the photo does not do it justice by any means. And it would be ideal to wear a blanket scarf with it. If you got the Fall FabFitFun box the blanket scarf that was included in the box is perfect….and I mean perfect.

I would have to say the most versatile item that I wear all year around is the long t-shirt; and they are only ten dollars! Super comfortable and they go past your waste area….thrilling! For me that is!

I really dislike t-shirts that are only to the waste. Another plus..you can dress it up or down with some fun jewels and a bold lipstick!

So fun!

My two favorite favorite winter staples from above are the cardigans and the peekaboo long sleeve shirt. You can’t go wrong with a cardigan, for me that is another item that you can dress up or dress down. Personally I always have two staple cardigans hanging in my closet, I typically either have one that is a black or gray color and the other is a brighter tone like a cranberry.

Isn’t cranberry a beautiful color? You can’t got wrong with the color cranberry, it can be matched with so many other colors like navy…or gold. So pretty.

Anyways, I absolutely love a shirt that shows a little back. To me nothing is more sexier than a shirt that shows some skin in back…so playful. Throw that shirt on with a cute lacy cami, jeans or leggings with some cute boots…topped with a bold lip and call it a date night!

Honestly speaking when it come to my winter wardrobe, I love to be comfortable and warm. Pittsburgh weather is so unpredictable that I prefer to have an assortment of different clothing options for those odd days in January where you can catch me wearing flip-flops. I am personally hoping for a white Christmas this year and a milder winter for the upcoming months next year!

What are you favorite winter wardrobe staples?

      Thank You! I am trying to expand my wardrobe so I am not wearing the same thing constantly. I am a creature of habit, if I find something I like I will buy it in another color. In the winter I have to stay warm Pittsburgh get so cold and damp. I am not much of a turtle neck wearer, I remember being a child and my parents putting them on me in the fall and winter time. The sweater the is the first collage top right hand that has the peekaboo cutout on the chest area is the first turtle neck I have work in probably about 20 years. Stay warm!
