Whenever I have an outfit I wear a lot, I start to call it my "mom uniform." Truth be told, pretty much all of my outfits are mom uniforms and most of my clothes are comfortable, relaxed and easy to play or chase kids in.
For this, there aren't many things easier than a chambray shirt. Mine is in my weekly rotation because it's stylish and comfortable, and when you pair it with jeans and knee-high boots, it's the perfect mom uniform.
Everyone has a brand of denim they come to love and know if they're worth the splurge. Choose your denim wisely and it will last forever. In this case, my pair of Hudson jeans were perfect for my chic mom uniform!
I know, boots don't come cheap. But, just like the denim, the right pair will last you year after year. Mine are actually from Shoemint, but if you're not into the monthly subscription thing, Steve Madden has many similar styles.
