tee and coat season

My favourite weather is when you can comfortably wear a tee and a coat. It's not too hot or too cold, because in Canada, you can easily freeze your ass off in the winter if you try to just wear a tee under your coat. I actually think that Australians have it best because their winter is like spring here! Maybe I should consider a move... Anyways, I've seriously been living in this outfit lately because this coat is just perfect and joggers and tee are so easy for mom life and appropriate for school pickup/drop off. I don't like having to change my clothes from going out to coming home all the time when I'm busy between work and mom duties during the day. So easy basics are a must. Here are some of my spring mom basic must-haves below!

 

The basic tee / uniqlo / modern essentials / kotn

so into brown

Often in my life I have wondered why people would ever wear brown. It can so easily look blah. But then suddenly I've developed an affinity for the colour. Like, when did brown become so pretty!? I think it is the combination of quality materials and classic shapes that gives it a modern feel. This new phone case and clutch are from Berdine and are amazing quality. Quality over quantity, always! Berdine makes everything with sustainability  and style in mind. And these are some majorly gorgeous pieces. The colour is so rich, I know it's really going to pop with all of my neutral outfits, and give it a little bit of something different than the same old black and white.
