5 Summer Essentials for the Stylish Mom

Casual Outfit Inspiration, Mom StyleLauren1 Comment

Ready or not, Summer-mode is in full swing!

For all you mamas trying your best to stay stylish, comfy and cool this summer, here are my 5 Summer Wardrobe Essentials guaranteed to do just that!

1. A cute, breezy blouse.

Let's face it, basic tees and tanks will always be high up on the "Summer Essential" list, but sometimes a fun blouse, ruffled tee or off-the-shoulder top is a nice change of pace. I personally love off-the-shoulder and cold-shoulder styles for summer since they can be worn day into night, add a punch of style without trying too hard and are super-flattering on the arms! 

This gingham version is just $35, can be tucked in or out and stays in place over the arms. I love the pom-pom details on the sleeves!

2. A perfect-fitting pair of denim shorts/cutoffs.

It's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of denim shorts and cut-offs. In case you missed my recent post all about denim shorts, check it out here.

Just like your trusty pair of blue jeans, a pair of denim shorts will mix and match with just about anything. I almost always size up one size in cutoffs for a perfect fit...because slightly-slouchy cutoffs are more flattering than tight cutoffs!

3. An oversized crossbody bag.

Every woman needs a crossbody bag, and every mama needs an oversized one! It's just so nice to be able to go hands-free while traveling and/or running errands, and to be able to have the space to throw everything you need into one bag!

I have been carrying this big white hobo everywhere that involves the kids this summer! I love that can be worn as a crossbody or a shoulder bag. {It's also available here in more colors.}

4. A comfy pair of platform sandals.

I love that platform sandals are "in" for summer, because they provide height {aka flattering the legs!} along with practicality. Since I personally don't find flats to be the most comfortable type of shoes, platform sandals have become my go-to "mom-shoe." An added bonus is that platform sandals look equally fab paired with shorts, cropped jeans, skirts and casual dresses, and are the perfect shoe to pack for travel.

The sandals I am wearing in this post are honestly some of the MOST COMFORTABLE I have ever worn! They come in six colors and are just $59. They feel like walking on pillows and I cannot recommend them enough!

5. A pop-color pair of earrings.

When all else fails and on those days when it feels like too much effort to get out of a tee-shirt, shorts and flip-flops, a fun pair of pop-color earrings are your best friend! A tasseled statement earring has the magical power to make you look pulled together, even when you feel anything but! And, of course, a colorful earring can be worn day to night and dressed up, too!
