One of the questions I get asked a lot is “As a mom, what would you say are your must haves for (insert season here?” So, since winter is in full force I want to share my Winter must haves for mom life. These are the basics that you can mix and match with just about anything in your closet. You’ll be able to achieve a casual, running errands look to a lunch date, and even a night out. But, the thing is these are actually great basic for any women. They’re functional, easy and versatile; that’s what we all want and need in our lives! SO here are my winter must haves for moms and every really, every women.
Winter Must Haves for Mom Life
I live in high-waisted jeans. I bought my first pair this summer (here) and you guys, best decision I have made!! As a mom you constantly have to sit on the floor or even bend over to pick up your kids. With this style you can do ALLLLLL of those things and not feel like a plumber! It’s a amazing! This Topshop pair has been my go-to lately, also this one and they are only $75, but are currently ON SALE! I wear a lot of distressed/ripped jeans, so finding a great pair without those has been amazing because you can dress them up for a smart casual look. Bonus feature I love about high-waisted jeans is they hold you in!!! Which I definitely need, #whoswithme
I love a guuud over-sized sweater for a couple of reasons. First, they can be worn with leggings. Moms, I know you’re with me when leggings are your go-to comfy pant. So it’s great to have a few sweater options to throw over leggings and wear with boots, booties or even sneakers. However, like I have done here, it’s also great to half-tuck it and get a clean, well put together look. Plus suring winter I tend to have a lot of “fat days,” you know feeling bloated and over-sized yourself!! It hides all of that, AMAZING right?!!?
These are back again this year and I could NOT be more excited! Whether your a mom or not, we have those days and weeks where we just don’t wash our hair that much. Insert the hats, AKA life saver for the day! Whether you choose a beanie or even a wool wide/floppy brim hat (see here) a hat is definitely a MUST HAVE! Plus a beanie is very functional, it keeps your ears warm during those blistering cold days. I know what you’re thinking, you live in California, how do you know what that’s like. Well I grew up in the Midwest. It gets cold, and we had real Winters. I’m talking winters with snow, ice and school cancellations! Anyway these are so super cute and functional, what’s not to love about these?
Simply because you need something to hold ALL THE THINGS. You all know what I’m talking about, snacks, drinks, toys, coloring activities and you’re owns things too! Finding a great over-sized tote is something I can’t live without anytime of the year!
So a blanket scarf is just super comfy, stylish and really polishes off any outfit! I actually utilize it for a couple of things. Not only is it a scarf or wrap, but you can use it as a throw to cover up with if you’re at a football game or if you need to throw it down to sit on while at the park with the kids.
What are your must haves for mom life? I think I could add in cute sneakers or anything with a block heal. Block heals are great because you get that height you want, but more stability to still run after your kids if you need to!
