One of the perks of Southern living (other than the widely available Diet Dr. Pepper at most any restaurant, cheap real estate, and grocery stores on every corner), is the Winter weather.
As a life long New Englander, I pride myself on being tough when it comes to the cold, but after getting my fix over Christmas, I don't miss the snow or sub zero temps. Sorry I'm not sorry. The mild Winter also really accommodates my favorite style of dressing, aka the Winter uniform.
I'm a big, big fan of loose tops, skinny leg pants, and flats. When the cooler temps finally make their way to Texas, I swap filmy blouses for oversized sweaters, my favorite Jack Rogers sandals for my favorite Revas and call it a day. It's comfy, it flatters my shape, and works for toddler wrangling/errands/and headband making. My day in a nutshell.

I like having a formula worked out for daily dressing, it takes the stress out, and I've purged my closet to the point where I know everything in there fits, flatters, and is comfortable. I don't change my purse too often because I always lose things that way, but my current favorite is my Madewell Transport Tote. I'm obsessed with the monogram, it fits all my crap, and it's beyond classic.
I like to add splurge shoes, bags, scarves, or vests to dress up a pretty basic wardrobe and keep the jewelry minimal.
I follow the same formula for Olivia actually. Shocker that I dress her like I'd dress myself, but hey. I stock her up on leggings and long sleeve tees from Target and then get fun vests and shoes from Gap, Old Navy, and (duh) Target.
I love her moccasins and little sneakers for supportive and cute footwear, and she obviously loves her silver Hunters. They're her thang.
So that's it. Our Winter uniform. Basic tops, pants, and some snazzy accessories.
