As we're navigating this new season of three big kids in school, there is one really important aspect that we're having to pray through and strategize. 


Ok, ok. You and I both know it's not the most important thing - BUT this new season has brought a little bit more time to be intentional in how I get dressed AND it's brought a little bit of freedom from the dirty chores of the day because there are three less children to care for. On top of that, I see people more often because I'm picking up, dropping off, going on meetings, and running more errands. 

And so I've begun to think a little about School Mom clothes and I've found some good things I want to pass on! Here's what I'm loving so far. 

From top left, counter clockwise. Layla top from LSJ // moccasins are on my must get list since I tried on The Tiny Twig's a few weeks ago // Tory dress from LSJ // ring from Kitsy Lane // camo pants from Urban Outfitters // knuckle rings. I want a million knuckle rings.   

This is kind of my new inspiration board as I try to beef up my school mom wardrobe. The goal is casual, slightly edgy, with a huge dose of boho thrown in there. 

 One thing I did that helped me jump into a new clothing season? 

I finally tried Stitchfix! If you're not familiar with Stitchfix - the process works a little like this: You fill out a detailed questionnaire about how you like to dress and what your body is like. You pay $20 for them to send you a "fix" and a stylist handpicks some clothes for you to try. You keep what you like and send back what you don't. The $20 styling fee gets applied towards any clothes that you want to keep. 

I was a little nervous, but seriously thought the process was so fun and helped me get out of my comfort zone with what I want to be wearing. I loved everything they sent me, but I decided to keep the top in the picture above! I will be scheduling my next fix ASAP and next time plan to document a little better the process of what they sent and how I picked it. I feel like this is such a fun little treat for any gal needing a wardrobe pick me up. Even if you don't keep anything, just to get pushed a little in your wardrobe is such a help.

Lastly, the new core of my school mom wardrobe? I'm loving what the girls at La Senorita Jolie are pumping out. I heard about this clothing company through a friend and fell in love. It's all the things I want in clothes. Clean, well-made, simple, but super stylish. This is me wearing the poppy shirt. Also - they're offering Naptime Diaries readers free shipping with coupon code LSJ-EMB-FS. You won't be disappointed by the quality of these goods and they have new products coming out all the time! 

So whether you're a school mom or not a mom or never want to be a mom, those are my quick tips for brushing up your wardrobe. It's a continual process for me to peel. off. the. yoga. pants. but I know that taking a little time to invest in how this outer self looks aids in my overall process to live #wildandfree
