A Mommy Uniform
I remember reading an interview with Gywneth Paltrow years ago where she talked about having a mom uniform.
Undertease t-shirts. My black top is still very black four years later. I bought mine from Nordstroms, but when I was searching for links, it seems that Undertease has been bought by Modbod. Hopefully they are still just a good.
Something comfortable yet stylish, and very washable.
A few weeks ago I went to hear Courtney Kendrick speak at a BYU conference.
She shared the same idea, but her version of the uniform is a mumu dress. Again comfortable, and a style that makes her happy to get dressed each morning.
When I looked up pictures on the web, there is actually a wide range of dresses that fall into the mumu category. I liked this vintage pattern that I found.
I definitely like the concept of having a mommy uniform. The only times I am interested in giving my outfit extra time and contemplation is on date night. For me I have found a few items that wash really well. I mean over and over for years and years! They have passed the test of time.
I have skirts from Garnet Hill that are similar to this picture.
They are made of 70% cotton and 30% modal and never pill.
After having spent $50 on a maxi skirt from a different store, which looked worn after the second time wearing it, I really appreciated how smooth these Garnet Hill skirt stay.
