Mix and Match Basics with adidas

A New Year is a good time to invest in a new wardrobe. But being a mother sometimes mean limited sartorial choices. I always go for basics and essentials that can easily be styled for any occasion. I believe that a great wardrobe is a mix of casual basics complemented by fashionable and contemporary designs. It is important to invest in timeless essential pieces that can be worn throughout multiple seasons and can be combined endlessly. Running around three energetic little boys require both stamina and proper clothing!

Houston weather has been kind to us lately, allowing me to wear something other than leggings. Dressing up is something I still enjoy doing. Mixing and matching can be time consuming but if you’ve got your basics covered, it’s a no brainer.

This soft velour skirt from adidas is one of my current favorites lately. It’s slim, high-waisted, and extremely easy to dress up or down.

I’m fond of soft colors because they’re easy to pair with other pieces. I matched my skirt with a light grey cardigan and a simple black top. It makes the look chic but balanced. I finished the outfit with knee high socks and black ankle boots.

For the second look, I decided to go for a more laid back look. I borrowed one of my husband’s sweater to compliment the skirt. I’m a huge fan of oversized sweaters. I would wear them all the time if possible! 

The skirt is comfortable to wear and super soft, too! The plush texture gives the sporty skirt a feminine vibe. I finished the look with a strap-back hat and adidas shoes (this color is not available anymore but there are other colors to choose from) for a full on laid back style. Perfect for chasing and running around with the kids!

Be patient with yourself as you build a core, mix and match wardrobe that works for you.

Building a wardrobe takes time and major decluttering. It took me a while to do so but certainly worth the effort. Stocking up on basics was one of the best decisions I made and have made my life easier.

What’s in your wardrobe? And do you prefer feminine chic or laid back style?
