As you kick off the holiday season, kick off a new, functional wardrobe too. As Moms, there are not many pieces we need on a daily basis (unless you are a working Mom.) Otherwise, life at home is simple….well, in terms of wardrobe needs anyway!

Clean out your closet and either donate or consign pieces you don’t wear. Then see if you have these pieces in your existing collection. For the ones you need, take advantage of sales to fill in the gaps.

The jewelry can either be gold or silver, depending on your skin tone, but should contain hoops and studs. A pair of diamond stud earrings would be a bonus. And remember, these are the basics. From here, you can add a more colorful scarf, a pair of boots, a bright tank, etc. But at least it is a starting point:
