This outfit has been a go-to outfit formula for me lately: leggings + cozy top + a finishing pieces like necklace or a scarf. Perfect for days at home with a toddler. Then I make simple swaps based on my day: if there are errands outside the house, I might add a vest. Or if I want to squeeze in a workout in the basement, I replace the sweater with a tank top or t-shirt and get to it, because nap time=Mama’s productivity time. And I need that quiet time some days!
Speaking of other things this Mama needs? Dry shampoo. It really works wonders. Case in point: these photos. It had been 3 days since I’ve shampooed it. I’ve read about the benefits of shampooing less often and finally joined that bandwagon. I used to shampoo daily and my hair would get so oily just by the end of the day. But now that I’ve “trained” it to go longer between washes, it’s been so much better. And by day three, adding a little dry shampoo is just what I need before I wash on day four.
Another thing Mama needs (and all gals in the Midwest for that matter?) Duck booties. I got these a year or so ago—my go-to for the transitional weather periods like spring and fall. Pretty perfect given the weather we are experiencing in Chicagoland. Easier (and more versatile) to get on versus rain boots or snow boots, and your feet don’t overheat either. They’re waterproof but still stylish and easy to wear with most outfits. Definitely recommend them…and I included a few different options below, including some sale options!
Anyone else go a bit between washes? What other products do you use? Do you feel duck boots are versatile too?
