You guys asked to see what I actually wear in day to day life and I’m so happy to introduce the first edition of the Weekend Notes. For the next four weeks, I’m going to share what I actually wore this week on the blog. I’m vowing to keep it real (I may move away from the iPhone mirror shot but for now, that’s holding me accountable!) which means some weeks has a whole lot of athleisure thrown in there. A little bonus: at the end of each post, I’ll answer the top 3 questions asked that week via social media and email. After one month I’ll evaluate based on page views and feedback to see if this is something I’ll do long term. Ready. Set. Go!

Earlier this week, I shared why and how to choose your Momiform, now I’m back to share my tried and true favorites for this season. It’s always the hardest part of the year from a clothing perspective-I’m completely over big coats and winter accessories but it’s far too cold to whip out the sundresses and shorts. Practical basics are the name of the game for me!
In the winter months especially, I rely heavily on predictable pieces that fit into three criteria: 1. It has to be comfortable. 2. It has to be effortless. 3. It has to be flattering. Winter adds one more crucial criteria: it has to keep me warm. The items that fit into this category win a spot in my Momiform. A momiform is, loosely, a uniform of sorts that makes getting dressed every day for life with your kids a no-brainer. Today, we’ll talk about identifying the pieces you reach for most and evaluating if that has been intentional or unintentional. On Thursday, I’ll share the actual pieces I call my MVP during this January-March stretch.
