Wardrobe Essentials: The 6 Pieces you need Right Now

In your wardrobe you should have what you call essentials.  These are kind of like your basics, but they are things you use daily.  For example, a black blazer is an essential, but it’s not a daily basic.  Basics are the foundation for every day living.  These pieces are pieces I am obsessed with right now, because they help me get through the day.  For instance, I live in my slides.  These items are a daily must that I wear around the house and sometimes out to run errands.  They are basics but they are stylish enough to be essentials.  There are the six pieces that I’m currently obsessing over and that you need right now.  I’ve also linked several affordable options below, so you can go ahead and shop these wardrobe essentials if you don’t have them yet. 

Wardrobe Essentials

The Ribbed Tee

I won’t lie I have this tee in 3 different colors.  I wear them with everything.  Whether it’s around the house or running errands, everywhere…  I can even throw it on with a skirt or jeans and it can make an easy stylish outfit.  This is my favorite one so far.  It’s for A New Day at Target.  I have worn it several times and it doesn’t lose shape or pill, and it comes in 4 colors.

Biker Shorts

I just started wearing these and this was the first pair I bought.  They are a great option for Summer here in Miami.  I wear them to the park, or in the house.  I like to style them with an over-sized tee and sneakers for an every day #coolmom look.  This pair is from Colsie at Target, and I believe they came in black and gray.

The Slide

My slides are the comfiest thing I have ever bought. I bought two pairs from Keds after I had Briana and they just became my best friends. My husband couldn’t believe I bought a pair, but they give off a retro vibe, and they keep me stylish and comfy. Keds knows what’s up.

Wardrobe Essentials

The Tank Top

I recently bought a few tank tops that were a little more fitted.  I realized I had no sleeveless options for during the day and I found these, and I was so happy. These tanks are also from A New Day at Target.  I live in these tanks.  If I need to go somewhere, I can tuck them into a pair of jeans and heels and throw on a kimono and I’m good to go.  They are super affordable and come in a variety of colors. 

High-Waisted Leggings

Leggings have always been a go-to for me, but these leggings are a little different.  These leggings are not your typical knit legging.  These are built for the mom on-the-go.  They are high-waisted and have a larger tummy panel to keep everything in and keep it movin’.  This pair is from In Touch, but they have several similar pairs in other brands.

Wardrobe Essentials


My sneakers are my life savers.  They are on this list of wardrobe essentials because they go with everything.  Leggings, jeans, skirts, dresses, it doesn’t matter… they are an essential because you can wear them with anything.  This pair is from Keds, they are so comfortable.  I could wear them all day and they are very affordable and good quality. 

I know this post is very simple but I created it so you can shop for your essentials and keep life movin’ along and not worry about compromising comfort or style! Enjoy!
