Having casual outfits when you’re a mother is essential. You need clothing that will hold up to messes and frequent washing that is appropriate for running errands and the park. It is very easy to think that you can’t look nice, put together, or trendy with such criteria. I am here to tell you that this is not the case. This outfit is an example of a way to wear a T-shirt, jeans, and sneakers while maintaining style. I actually felt a bit glamorous in this outfit, which even I didn’t think possible in sneakers!
I’m wearing Gap’s Modern crew tee in true black. It’s a really great basic and is very good quality. The fabric is thick and both the fabric and color have held up well to lots of wear and washing. In terms of fit, I’d say it runs a bit small. I’m wearing a large here.
The jeans are my beloved Articles of Society jeans. They are a true skinny, but because they are nice and thick and are 65% cotton, they still feel like jeans rather than leggings. They say they run a size large, but I’m wearing my regular size here. These jeans are currently available at Nordstrom Rack for less than $40!
My sneakers are New Balance 696s. I like having closed-toe shoes for the fall and spring and these offer a comfortable, sporty, on trend option that is playground friendly. They run true to size, but I’ve found that wearing them with socks with tabs is necessary. They gave me terrible blisters at the back of my ankles the first time I wore them.
The bag is old, but I’ve tracked down some similar options, which you can see in the carousel above.
My watch is a Tag Heuer Aquaracer. It is sporty and casual, which makes it perfect for this outfit. But it’s simple and clean design makes it go with just about anything.
The sunglasses are Marc by Marc Jacobs and are no longer available. I’ve found a pair of aviators from Quay that are a similar color.
My earrings are Kate Spade New York’s Small Square Stud Earrings in jet. These earrings are great because they are incredibly versatile. They can be dressed up or down and go with any outfit that has black in it. I also really like the size because they are big enough to notice, but not so large that they become a statement piece.
