mom-i-form: (mom-i-fawrm) n:
The mom uniform, you know, the one you throw on when you need to run to the grocery store before picking up the kids at school, running them to a lesson or a practice, racing back home to throw some chicken in an Instant Pot while working on “homework” together. It’s the go-to outfit that you throw on and look suddenly pulled together enough for carpool, but comfortable enough for some nap-time binge watching on the couch.
My mom-i-form changes with the seasons, but usually includes the basics: denim & cotton. The spring teasing weather here has us all guessing what we’re going to get when we walk outside, so this week [yep, I said week] I am prepared for whatever the Kentucky forecast has to offer.

I’m living for these ripped black jeans right now. They provide just enough stretch for this post-partum bod but also enough structure to keep my rear in gear [unlike leggings]. Old Navy is my go-to for inexpensive staples like layering tees and tanks. They are cheap and replaceable in the case of a laundry mishap [looking at you, husband]. One can never have enough drapey open cardigans. I wear this one religiously. It is the perfect thing to throw on or throw in a bag, plus it was under $20 when I purchased it last spring! Pick up some of these staples and you’ll be the most casually cool mom in the carpool lane ;).
