We made it through winter, and now it is time to wade through our wardrobe to see what still fits, who makes the cut from Spring/Summer, and potentially how many lunges you will need to do in order to fit into those from last season. 😉
I’ve put together a quick list of a few things that will help update your Spring wardrobe for everyday mom life.
As a note: I always recommend shopping your closet BEFORE you go and buy something new. You don’t have to Marie Kondo everything, but definitely pack away your bulky winter sweaters, move your shorts pile lower and assess what you already have, before hitting the (online) stores.
Spring Must Have: Bralettes
I’m recently obsessed with bralettes and think they are one of the cutest, comfiest things to enter our everyday wardrobe. They are literally at every major retailer these days, but I just picked up a couple of these from Aerie the other day. They’re cute under a tank, or a T-shirt. Note: we are NOT Coachella ladies…so these are meant to be worn UNDERNEATH clothing only – they are not to serve as a full top. Don’t let those Coachella Millenials lead you astray; moms can wear these too!
Spring Must Have: Graphic Tees
You find them everywhere, now let me prove to you why you need a couple solid graphic tees in your life, and then I’ll show you how to wear them.
Obviously, I’m 100% bias, but these are my favorite graphic tees as of late. It feels like one has been created for every possible mood in my everyday life. And you know that I try REAL HARD to not punch my ticket for the kid crazy train, but every so often, the snark takes over and they win.
Spring Must Have: Cute Running Shoes
The sun is out, and your days will now be filled with park playdates, chasing after kiddos, and sunset walks with your neighbors (I would say your partner, but let’s be honest, that’s prob only realistic for retirement). You need a cute pair of tennis shoes!
Personally, these are my go-to. But I also love these and these. Remember, we’re not running marathons in these ladies…we’re going for cute and comfort in case you were under the impression I was a runner.
Spring Must Have: Aviators
I love seeing the super trendy sunglasses around town, and recently even discovered these at Target. I first put them on as a joke, but then I was informed by one of my Instagram friends that they are actually designer knock offs (you’ll gasp when you see how much they cost!). But I’m a pretty classic kind of girl when it comes to sunnies, so Aviators for life it is.
Spring Must Have: Tinted Moisturizer
So I’ve been on a kick to SLOWLY clean up my products, while still actively wanting them to actually WORK. I’ve been leary of buying into all the MLM hype, but truly some of the Beauty Counter products, I legit LOVE. Specifically, I always switch out my full coverage winter foundation for something a little more subtle like the Beauty Counter Dew Face Tinted Moisturizer. I tend to go “up” a shade (thank you sunshine and life back in my cheeks) and it’s just a good everyday wear that evens out my skin, while still protecting it!
No, I don’t sell it. No, I’m not making a commission even when you click on it. This is my legit recommendation because that’s what friends do for other friends – share the good stuff.
