I am a Stay At Home Working Mama (or SAHWM) which basically means I work from home and have a small child at home with me as well. I know myself and other SAHM Mamas can fall into a style rut, not putting much effort or thought into what you throw on each day to wrangle the kids, run errands and for some, get some work done as well.
Usually being a SAHM/SAHWM means that your wardrobe can be quite casual, and you don’t have the budget/inclination to have a huge range of clothes. This is where a Capsule Wardrobe comes in handy! A capsule wardrobe is a small to medium collection of pieces that can be mixed and matched together to create multiple outfits. I have put together a casual capsule for Autumn/Winter of basics in neutral tones (featuring a pop of berry/blush) that is a great minimalist range, or starting block, in both Luxe & Less to fit in with everyone’s budget!
Featuring mid to high price brands, this Luxe Capsule Collection is all about quality over quantity… these pieces will last you a long time and as basics, are worth the investment.

I’ve pulled the budget edit mostly from Kmart! Cheap and cheerful, the clothes won’t go the distance but if you’re ready for a whole new wardrobe, starting from scratch can be expensive! Investing in a full wardrobe, then replacing with higher quality items as the cheaper items wear out can be a budget friendly option for some. The shoes are from Spendless-Shoes who’s quality is actually fantastic considering the price point.
