I feel certain if you live in the south, you are having the same dilemma I am. I leave the house freezing in the morning and then by afternoon I’ve warmed up big time! This weekend temps will get up to between 76-79 degrees in Birmingham and it’s in the 40s in the morning, so how’s a girl to dress?
My simple answer is always to grab a jacket, cardigan, or some kind of layering piece! This is a great throw on and go look that is mom-approved and ready to go from cold to warm weather. You’ll see above that I used my t-shirt tie up tutorial for the warmer afternoon temps and see I slung on a denim jacket below for cooler weather.
I am wearing these black jeans slap out, y’all! I wear them constantly so if you haven’t gotten a pair yet, they are well worth it. They feel like a second skin and have a touch of edge with the ripped knees.
Today’s mom style tip of the day is to avoid denim on denim crime. Now keep in mind, this is my particular view. If you love denim on denim, girl, get it! I’m talking about the kind where you are wearing denim jeans and then without even thinking about it, grab your denim jacket and look in no way shape or form like you are put together.
There are a very FEW times when denim on denim without planning to put it together looks right in my personal opinion. I’ve seen friends pull it off with ease but it’s just not my forte, to say the least! My rule I live by is if it’s not a colored denim (aka, these black denim leggings), I don’t wear it with another denim.
Since it’s a Monday and I’m feeling all kinds of needs to be productive in this blog post, I thought I’d share 3 Monday Mains…little updates that y’all may find helpful!
