When I was younger, I loved going Back to School shopping. It made the new school year more exciting and fun. I would pour through the ads that came in the newspaper and mail, making lists with items I wanted to have.
Now that I’m older, I find myself looking through catalogs and wishing I could update my wardrobe too. We recently went to buy some new shoes for my kids and I couldn’t help but snag a pair for myself. The sales are always great at this time of year and, I decided, moms deserve something new too!
My favorite site to find the BEST pieces to add to my wardrobe is Jane.com. And when I say it’s my favorite, I mean I’m obsessed! Why? Here are are some reasons and basic 411:
Deals go live early ever morning (Midnight MST) and are live for 72 hours or until they are sold out. I always hear that people worry about ordering online-what if the clothes are the wrong size? Or damaged? With Jane, there is no reason to worry. They act as a middle man between the sellers and customers, helping with any problems. Most of the sellers that I have worked with have 14 day return policies too. And if you need a refund, there is no hassle. Jane’s customer service team is fantastic!!
Jane was recently ranked as the 11th Fastest Growing Privately Held Company and the #1 Retailer (out of 5,000 that were reviewed)! Growth like that doesn’t happen without a fabulous team and great products. All of the products on Jane are from small businesses so customers can buy knowing they are supporting them and Jane’s mission of improving the lives of their sellers and customers.
Awesome company right?
Because the deals change every three days, these finds may be different when you click over. However, there are so many fun clothing options, you will find something that suits you! I have broken this up into items that are good additions to a busy mom’s wardrobe and items I have found to be necessities. Each item has these attributes: stylish, comfortable, affordable, and versatile.
1. The Tee Dress
Just because it’s a dress, doesn’t mean it can’t be comfortable too! These are perfect paired with some cute sandals while dropping the kids off at soccer practice or for wearing with some heels to church. They are especially good to wear as we transition from summer to fall and still have warmer temps.
Cardigans are a basic staple piece in any wardrobe. They can be paired with many items and the combinations are endless. I love these cardigans because of the cute buttons and the v-neck. The price tag on these comes in at $12.99!
I’m also a big fan of the draped cardigans. They are super comfy and can be dressed up with jewelry and pumps or they are perfect for morning carpool. I have several colors!
I think we can all agree that leggings are the most comfortable thing ever. I honestly wasn’t sold on them at first but I’ve changed my tune since I tried a pair last year. I LOVE mine. And the best thing is that with the availability of longer shirts and tunics, I don’t have to worry about how my behind looks in them because it’s covered! I’m just not that confident anymore (ha ha!). These are normally a steal-always under $10.
4. Tunic Shirts
I love that shirts are longer now. I don’t have to worry about pulling them down anymore and they are incredibly flattering and are perfect with leggings. And the Dolman tops are seriously the best invention ever. They are flattering on everyone! They come in a ton of colors and styles like the ones here. These were all under $20.
5. Maxi Skirts & Dresses
Maxi skirts are the greatest invention ever when it comes to skirts. They are comfy and come in a plethora of styles. They can be dressed up or down. In the summer, they are light and breezy but perfect for winter when you don’t feel like shaving your legs. I especially love throwing my denim jacket on with mine. The dresses are just as comfortable and I get compliments everywhere I go in mine!
6. Baseball Tees
I admit, I never used to like these. They just weren’t my style. But, like so many other items on this list, their array of styles is growing. Baseball tees are so comfy and I love that I can feel stylish without sacrificing comfort or putting in a lot of effort! I especially love the florals.
I love a cute lightweight blouse or a chambray top! They make me feel dressed up and are easy to throw on when I’m running to Back to School Night or music recital. They can be just as comfy as tee shirt too because many are made with a lightweight fabric and don’t hug you tight.
Anyone who knows me well, knows how much I love my bling! But, I’m not one who owns anything expensive. The thing about jewelry is that it can dress a tee shirt up and it’s an easy thing to throw on! Jane always has a great selection of jewelry, including sentimental and custom pieces that make great girlfriend gifts!
9. Hoodies and Jackets
I love a good hoodie. On crazy days, I want nothing more than to cuddle up with a good hoodie and watch my favorite show or get lost in a book. Hoodies are also becoming more versatile and I love all the different styles I’ve been finding. And because they are all so different, I feel no worries about ordering a bunch!
Jackets are also a must. Mine tend to get worn out; the kids’ needs usually trump my desire to get a new coat so I tend to wear mine out. However, with the killer deals on Jane, I can actually afford them! The Ruffle Coat is my favorite and sells out every time.
While I wouldn’t wear a blazer in my normal running around with the kids, they are perfect for the occasional meeting, girls night out, or date night. Throw them on over a graphic or layering tee with a cute pair of jeans and pumps, and you are ready to take on the town! I also own a few. I can honestly admit that just wearing it ups my confidence level which is a nice change for a mommy knee deep in toys and cleaning supplies!
