Oh hey there!

So far I’ve made it three days in a row with posting!

I’m patting myself on the back in case you were wondering.

I love pieces like this sweater because even though they are relatively simple, they carry an outfit so far.

The color and the open detail at the back turn a comfy as pajamas outfit into a pulled together look.

After three years of being a stay at home mom, I’m finally coming to terms with the fact that my style is just… casual right now. I like to get a bit dressed up, but it makes zero sense at the moment.

So when I can find a top that marries casual and dressed up as well as this one does, I’m a happy girl.

How do you guys add statement pieces to your wardrobes? Do you go for color, texture, or pattern?

    You are right on the money about accepting a casual wardrobe. I’m in the same boat – I’m either at home with my toddler smudging up my outfit with his grubby little hands and my infant puking on me or at work in a research lab where it is not uncommon to get splashed with bleach. You know I’m not going to be wearing a >$100 ethically made sweater.

    But it’s still a struggle because I want to look nice and put together – a feeling that’s been really strong lately probably because I feel like I’ve lost my identity to some extent since becoming a mom.

    Mom struggles!

      I 100% get that Cassi! I think it’s like we’re hanging on to some of the last vestiges of our former life. 😉 At least that’s what it was for me… I’ve been able to reconcile it finally, but telling myself that this is just a PHASE and it won’t last forever. At some point, I will be able to dress a little less casually.

    I love this color! I frequently wear a goldenrod hoodie. It’s just a little darker than your sweater.

    My statement pieces are either bright mostly solid colors or neutrals with patterns.

      I still haven’t dipped my toes in pattern too much. I’ll do stripes in a heartbeat, but other patterns intimidate me!
