Simple Mom Style for Fall

*This post contains affiliate links. Thanks for supporting Like Honey!*

Simple outfits are really some of my favorites. I love the ease of pairing a cozy sweater with jeans and booties and seeing it all come together with just a couple accessories. 2017 has definitely been the year of the hat for me--this black felt panama is a total staple in my fall and winter wardrobe. It elevates the simplest look to something just a little more pulled together.

And this black handbag? A clearance steal at Target that has been even better than I imagined! You know you're a mom when your purse has to be big enough to hold diapers, wipes, cups, pacifiers, a couple of books, and at least 3 snacks before putting any of your own items in it. #MomLife, amirite? This purse is that and more! The pocket in the front is my favorite for storing my phone and keys in the store for easy access, and it comes with a crossbody strap should I need to go hands-free.


I also realized how much I love this taupe and black color combo! They're both such classic neutrals and I usually don't pair light and dark together this way, but I'm really liking it!

P.S. Did you catch my Thanksgiving style edit? This outfit made an appearance and didn't break any of my What NOT to Wear rules!

What NOT to Wear to Thanksgiving Dinner + 8 Feast-Ready Looks to Recreate

Whether you travel to be with family or host the meal in your own kitchen, Thanksgiving is a time to gather with those we love and enjoy time together. I think that's my favorite aspect of the holiday season and I'm so excited to spend time with my family in my own home this year!

For me, any family gathering is an opportunity to "dress up" a little bit! I love having a chance to ditch my leggings for something a little more put together, but there are some do's and don't's to finding the perfect Thanksgiving-ready outfit. Today, I've got 6 outfit ideas for you that are easy to throw together and don't break any of my Thanksgiving wardrobe rules:


Keep It Simple
There is a time and a place for statement sleeves, and the dining table is not one of them! Leave the complicated styles at home and enjoy a no-fuss meal.

Dress Up
It was once the norm to wash up and dress nicely for the regular, weeknight family dinner. I love that tradition, but it just isn't practical in today's busy schedules, so I love seizing the opportunity to be a little more presentable than normal at holiday functions and special occasions.

Dress Comfortably
Dressing up doesn't have to mean black tie! Let's face it: you're probably going to be overeating and lounging around, so make sure your outfit can accommodate the extra bloat and casual seating: take a casual outfit to the next level with jewelry or heels.


Wear White
As much as I love cream sweater and white jeans in the fall, DON'T wear white to a big meal! No one wants cranberry sauce stains on their lap...seriously.

Wear Tight Clothing
I don't know about you, but I'm certainly not comfortable wearing my tight jeans or a snug sweater after feasting on the biggest meal of the year. Hide that food baby with something a little more forgiving.

Rock a Bold Lip
Who doesn't love a bright, red lip during the holidays?! At least wait until after the big meal to apply a bold lip color, or skip it altogether, to avoid a smeared and bleeding mess.

Have you ever had a Thanksgiving outfit mishap? What are you planning to wear to your family feast?
