Every year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I have this internal battle between wanting to buy all the new fun things, or using it as opportunity to just stock up on my favorites while they’re on sale. Since the latter typically wins, I thought I’d share a few basics that I love with you guys. Come fall I’m typically a leggings, t-shirt, and sneakers kind of girl, especially during the week when pulling together an outfit feels super overwhelming!
Here are my top ten mom wardrobe picks.
1 | Zella Live In High Waist Leggings (Retail: $54 Sale: $35.90)
I know I have mentioned these more than once on the blog, but they will forever by my favorite leggings! I literally live in them during the winter. They help flatten the tummy, which I very much appreciate. If you’ve never tried a pair, I highly recommend you try out a pair. (FYI, they have the cropped ones on sale too.)
2 | Madewell High Rise Skinny Jeans (Retail: $135 Sale: $89.90)
I have two requirements for jeans. They must be high rise and they must have holes in the knee. These ones from Madewell are the perfect wash for fall and under $100.
3 | Madewell Paint Stripe Leather Tote (Retail: $198 Sale: $129.90)
Speaking of Madewell, this tote is perfect for every day use. This was almost my Christmas gift last year, but I decided at the last minute to replace my ten year old wallet instead. But I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
4 | Barefoot Dreams Circle Cardigan (Retail: $116 Sale: $76.90)
Right after I had Winnie I got two breast infections. It was the sickest I’ve ever been in my entire life. While I was recovering I received one of these luxurious Barefoot Dreams hooded cardigans from a longtime friend in the mail. It was one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received, and is honestly one of my very favorite things. Perfect for curling up on the couch.
5 | Nordstrom Cubic Zirconia Rose Gold Stud Earrings (Retail: $38 Sale: $24.90)
I have worn the cubic zirconia studs from Nordstrom for as long as I can remember. I love these, and every year buy myself a new pair during the sale (because I most definitely lose one of them every year). (They have multiple sizes & metals here.)
6 | Caslon Rounded V-Neck Tee (Retail: $25 Sale: $17.90)
My favorite basic tee at a good price point. It does run a bit big, but I prefer a pretty slouchy fit!
7 | Vans Old Skool Sneaker (Retail: $59.95 Sale: $39.90)
I literally live in Vans, and this blush color is perfection. I’m also super in love with this high top version.
8 | Spanx Faux Leather Leggings (Sale: $98 Sale $64.90)
I have absolutely no shame in putting two pairs of leggings on my must-own list because leggings are life. I pair these with a slouchy sweater when I really feel like taking it up a notch. 😉 They are also high-waisted to help suck in the tummy. I’ve been really impressed with how well these have held up.
9 | Free People Electric City Pullover (Retail: $98 Sale: $64.90)
Speaking of slouchy sweaters, I love this one from Free People!
10 | Hinge Velvet Baseball Hat (Retail: $39 Sale: $25.90)
I rounded up my favorite baby gear picks – you can see them all here.
