Ever since transitioning from being oh, so pregnant with Greyson to becoming a breastfeeding mama, finding those affordable and purposeful pieces became a necessity. I am still adapting to my new #mombody since giving birth over a year ago and for me the struggle has been very real finding clothes that fit well, are comfortable, and of course, cute. Finding such clothes also has me considering the minimalistic lifestyle in which we live – making me think differently about my clothing purchases. Before I would shop and find myself making purchases with little consideration of what I already owned and if I really needed those items. These days, however, I am more intentional about the clothing I buy and cultivating a capsule wardrobe that is practical as well as classic.
Thanks to PinkBlush I’ve not only found a number of favorite maternity pieces back when I was pregnant, but I love that they offer the same versatile styles for women, too.
Capsule Wardrobe Essentials with PinkBlush
One of the bigger fashion trends this season are kimonos! Kimonos come in all kinds of fabrics, styles, and weight, which make them a perfect cover option – especially for those chillier evenings and warmer days of the impending summer season. I love these kimonos for a lot of different reasons, but one in particular is how easily I can add it to my already established capsule wardrobe. I keep my wardrobe simple with a few basics and adding fun tops this sheer floral piece from PinkBlush keeps my looks current and on-trend for the season. Plus it’s a style I don’t already own and is a variation of a cardigan, which is always a basic piece for me.
The chiffon in particular is a super lightweight material, which is great for spending a day outdoors but covering up under the sun or for layering when indoors. The bell sleeves and flowyness (is that even a word?) allow this kimono to be worn with practically anything- from formal to casual and every style in between.
As a mother of a toddler, an aspect to getting ready is that I need outfits that are mindless to throw together. But, I still want to give the impression that I so effortlessly was able to walk out of the house like this. Because let’s be real, it’s not always so simple to throw an outfit together while wrangling your 14 month old and husband and manage to get out the door on time. But today I did! *collective high five*.
