If you have been following my blog for a while, then you will know that Fall is my absolute favourite season and time of year. Not only am I a sucker for Pumpkin Spice lattes (call me basic), but I love the cool crisp air and of course Fall fashion! If I could wear scarves, booties and sweaters all year long, while sipping on Pumpkin Spice, I would be an even happier momma then I already am. Speaking of Fall fashion, becoming a mom has made me focus more on investing in my wardrobe. Instead of spending money on trendy styles that only last for a season, I have started to invest in staples that will last and spending less or not even bothering when it comes to fast fashion items.
Follow below for my mom style tips on pieces worth the investment!
(Giveaway near the end of the post!!!)
A Wool Jacket/Coat
Every woman needs a wool jacket. Stick to a classic colour that you will wear year after year and not get sick of.
I have a few wool jackets that I have acquired through out the years. One is a classic belted military style in black, another I call my “Gossip Girl” jacket, as it is plaid and super preppy. The final style is more of a statement jacket, but still classic and goes with everything!
A Leather Jacket
Faux or real, invest in quality. A classic moto style will ensure that your jacket will never go out of style and trust me when I say you will wear it with everything!
I have had mine for roughly 6 years and purchased it from Dynamite. It was not an expensive item however, it has definitely stood the stand of time thus far.
A Suede BootieSuede booties go with everything and can be worn with your favourite jeans, as well as with a cute skirt or dress. Just as with a wool jacket, stick to a neutral colour ie. Beige/Brown/Black.
I purchased mine from Winners almost 8 years ago from the brand Rampage and the suede is still in amazing condition.
A Leather Belt
Belts should never be purchased just with the intent to keep your pants from falling down. A belt provides a clean polished statement to any outfit. Yes, still wear your belt with your favourite jean or trouser, but for the purpose of adding detail rather than for a poor fitting bottom.
A classic leather belt can also be used in place of a tie on a jacket and also to conch in a loose sweater dress.
I recently purchased mine from Coach.

Faux Fur Vest
I love my faux fur vest, not only does it keep me warm, but it also adds a touch of glam to any outfit I pair it with. I will wear mine with a loose jogger and my leather jacket, as well as dressed up with a bootie and a dress.
I actually got mine on sale a few years ago from Dynamite and I am really impressed with the quality. It has not shed at all and still looks brand new!
A Classic Timepiece
Ever since becoming a mom I have realized more and more how fast time passes. Being able to manage and maximize my time is essential to my everyday life and ensuring that I am fully present with my kids and husband. Having a beautiful and unique watch that goes with every outfit is a must have for me and my Walnut wood & vintage rose Cassia watch from JORD is just that!
