Girls Night In

Outfit Details:
Shirt | Tank | {Scarf Similar} Here & Here| Jeans | Socks | {Shoes Similar} Here

One of my favorite go-to Girls Night In outfits!

Nothing says "let's get together, watch some girly TV and gossip" like a comfortable outfit. I absolutely love my girls nights, especially since they have become quite a bit more low key.

When trying to figure out what to wear I start with what bottoms I will wear. Staying in and chilling on the couch usually calls for a very comfortable pair of skinny's or leggings, plain and simple. Once that is decided I work my way up and end with the shoe choice. Generally I end up with an outfit quite similar to this one!

I absolutely love to layer my clothing, especially with a graphic tee or tank and button up shirt. Just ask my husband, he says I have too many of these style shirts, however I say you can never have enough! The more you have the more options you have when throwing together a comfortable outfit. This makes creating new outfits simple and fun, plus it doesn't break the bank when mixing and matching, creating new outfits of clothing you already own!

Big scarves are also one of my go-to styling items during the Fall and Winter months.
They are easy to throw on and help give any outfit depth and texture.

And let's be real here, being a mom of two boys, coffee isn't just a luxury but a hard core necessity on a daily basis. My day doesn't start before I have at least one cup :)

Oliver {2}, Me, Andrew, Charlie {7 Months}

While this blog is going to be primarily fashion based I will throw in some personal details about my own life and that of my family. I am a stay at home mom so my boys are pretty much my entire world. This picture was taken this past December for our Christmas card, I am beyond thrilled with how it turned out due to the fact that all three boys were not into getting pictures taken.

My plan is to post once a week, maybe twice depending on what is going on, and sharing with you one of my favorite outfits from that week. I will share outfit details as well, in the hopes that it will inspire you to go and create the same or similar outfit. I look forward to sharing a little bit of my world with everyone!

About The Closet

My name is Melissa and among many things I am first and foremost a Mother of two boys, Oliver (two) and Charlie (seven months). My passions include reading, writing and spending as much time as I can with my family.

I want this blog to be a place for me to share my journey as a Mom through my closet. Gone are the days of "mom jeans" and track suits. Along with sharing my journey with you all I also am going to do so on a budget!

Welcome to Not Your Mom's Closet.

I hope you enjoy!
