This is basically the epitome of “mom uniform”, but I ain’t mad at it. It helps that I like all the individual pieces a lot, even though they’re as plain and basic as they come. I’ve been wearing a lot of neutrals and muted colours on weekends, saving up my brights and prints for the week, and I’m really enjoying that low key vibe. I’m sure I’ll feel differently come summer, but for now, our cruel winter has sent me flying into the arms of warm, cozy knits — style be damned. Sweater on sweater action? I’m all over it.
These chinos are definitely a summer weight, but I was headed to an indoor birthday party on this particular occasion, so I decided to break them out early. They’re a looser fit than my usual skinny everything pants silhouette, and super soft. (Come to think of it, there’s enough room in the leg that I could probably wear my fleece leggings underneath, which would make these pants a winning proposition for all kinds of weekend errand-running this winter. Hmmm …) I like that the contrast band at the waist and calf makes them a little less boring. I’m a cool mom, okay?
