If you’re looking for Daily Mom Style, you can see all my recent outfits here. Next week I’ll be back to posting a recap of my weekly outfits on Wednesdays.
Today I got my workout out of the way early in the day, and I came home and showered and got myself put together even though I didn’t go anywhere except to pick up my daughter at school, and for that, I wore this sleeping bag.
I save this coat for the coldest of days, and seeing how it’s approximately 6 degrees outside right now, I figured it was warranted. Underneath that gigantic parka, I was wearing this black sweater and my plum skinny jeans.
I know, it’s a silly top for a cold day, but it’s warm inside my house, and it works with the jeans. I accessorized with silver hoops, a silver bracelet, and this delicate necklace that fills the neckline perfectly. I like how the black leather “chain” works with the top.
Of course, either of my black boots would have worked just fine with this outfit, but I chose the grey UGGs for warmth, and to add another color into the mix.
Everything about this outfit is old, so I don’t have shopping links, but it’s such an easy “outfit recipe” that anyone can copy: black top, colored jeans, neutral boots and simple jewelry. Easy peasy!

Hi there! I have read your blog for over a year, but never commented. I have loved your fashion series this month! I have a similar lifestyle to yours (kid activities, work from home, church) so I really relate to LOTS of your outfits. I am very curious for you to expound on what this February challenge did for you mentally…i.e. did you get more work done because you felt more “together”…did you feel better about yourself, etc.? Sometimes I can’t imagine actually bothering with putting on a necklace (or makeup!) for some of my days, but maybe it really would help me be more productive? Curious to hear all your thoughts! Thanks for the great content. I think I got here originally from the Pleated Poppy. I really love your coffee talk posts…sometimes it is just really fun to get a glimpse into other people’s lives! I appreciate all your hard work. Many thanks from a very silent – yet faithful – reader!
Hi Kristi. Thanks for those encouraging words! I will definitely write a recap/wrap-up.
I have one of those “sleeping bag” coats and have been wearing it all the time. It is actually my most comfortable coat – much more comfy than my bulky, but shorter, down ski jacket. I guess my red peacoat is comfortable but I am just not warm enough in it for this weather we’ve been having this winter. Plus the long coat is an absolute necessity for an elementary school teacher at recess – with that coat on and tall boots to cover my calves, only my knees are lacking in warmth. ☺
I don’t think I’d make it through the winter without my “sleeping bag” coat! I love the color of your jeans and that necklace is so cute!

love your style, thanks for helping moms
stay on top of thinks…physically, emotionally and spiritually!
Sleeping bag is a good name for that coat. It looks very warm. I live in the PNW and have not had to wear a winter coat this year. A fall coat with a scarf and leather gloves does fine, even for night. We have been very fortunate when we look at the rest of Canada and a lot of the US. Now,I wouldn’t mind some of that southern weather – digging my toes in the sand, soaking up that hot sunshine, drinking a margarita. Ahhh
