I am a mom of 8 kids and had them (all singles) within 11 years. And, I homeschool as well as run an online business. I learned a long time ago that it’s important for my well-being and productivity to get up every morning, do some kind of exercise such as online Pilates, take a shower, and get ready for the day. What does “getting ready” entail? Fixing my hair, putting on make-up, and dressing nicely in my “homeschool wardrobe”–every single day!
In the last couple of years, I started trying out capsule wardrobes and outfit formulas, especially from Get Your Pretty On (GYPO Outfit Formulas and Style Challenges) and Frump Fighters. It’s fun to buy a couple of new items each season and have someone else give me ideas about new combinations with items I already have in my closet! Today I’m sharing with you 15 Basic Items for Every Homeschool Mom Wardrobe.
15 Basic Items for Every Homeschool Mom Wardrobe
Whether it’s a white button-down shirt, white t-shirt, or white sweater, it will go with so much! Dress it up with jewelry, a scarf, or a nice jacket.
I never wore stripes until a few years ago. Now I love them!
One of my favorite items this spring is this fun flowered blouse from Old Navy. Wearing colors can make the day seem brighter.
Homeschool or Mom T-shirt
I ordered this shirt from Etsy and can’t wait to get it! T-shirts are perfect for the days when you don’t feel like dressing up too much.
There are some great Husband and Wife shirts from Married is Great that I love wearing as well!
What doesn’t go with a jean jacket?
I’ve wanted a cargo jacket for several years, and finally got one–from Stitch Fix!
Even if your shirt is dark or plain, the outfit will be brighter with a colorful cardigan.
I decided to try out the animal print trend this year with these two cardigans. So fun! I also got print earrings, shoes, and pants.
I love wearing jeans. They’re my all-time favorite on days I need comfort but still want to look nice.
Lighter jeans give the outfit a more casual feel than the darker jeans.
I found out that you can even wear white pants in winter!
Pink, teal, olive–do you have any colored pants to change up the look of an outfit?
Scarfs serve two purposes–to make an outfit more beautiful and to keep you warm!
Of course, I often wear gold and silver hoops (like you see in the photos after this one), but I was happy to find these pearl hoop earrings this year!
So, I hope that today you’ve been inspired to curate your own homeschool mom wardrobe? What are your must-have fashion pieces? Please share in a comment below!
