5 Summer Style Secrets
When you’re a mom, a trip to the hair salon can feel like a mini-vacation. I seriously always look forward to getting my hair done! It’s just a little bit of time I get to relax, let myself be pampered, and feel a little prettier. It’s also a few hours I don’t have to worry about getting chores done!
Moms don’t have the luxury of “me-time” most days. Not that it’s a bad thing, necessarily–it’s just a fact. Sometimes I wish for an extra hour in the morning just so I can get myself looking…well, myself!
That doesn’t mean I must sacrifice style for sanity, though. I’ve discovered some easy, simple fashion favorites to give my summer look a fresh twist!
(The) Summer Style Secrets
Focus on just a few fashion fixes to give your everyday look the pop it needs. To put it simply, accessorize! Here are some summer style secrets that can help you look and feel as fabulous as you truly are!
1: Pearls. Date night? Going shopping? Barbecue? Pearls have quite an effortless elegance and can be dressed up or dressed down. But any way you wear them, you’ll feel like a million bucks. This necklace from Prep Obsessed is a favorite of mine.
2: Studs. They’re more versatile than dangling earrings, and they’re safe from a baby’s curious grasp–a huge win for this momma! These stylish studs are my first choice this summer because not only are pineapples incredibly fun and trendy, the soft pink pearl color is easy to pair with almost any outfit!
3: Handbag. You may not wear it like you do a pair of shorts, but it completes any outfit. And think about it, whether you’re shopping, working, or stopping for coffee, your handbag is by your side. So choose a cute one that you love, one that’s functional and fun. My recommendation? This tote from Target! (Psst…it’s even got enough room for extra baby essentials when you’re on the go.)
4: Sunglasses. Other than hiding your eyes when you’re lacking make-up (c’mon, I’m not the only one who’s tried this), sunglasses give your outfit the ultimate summer look. There are countless styles out there! You need a pair that speaks to you. How about these cute (and on sale) Ray bans?
5: Straw Sun Hat. A gorgeous, feminine look of a wide-brimmed hat is flattering on bright summer days. And if that’s not enough, these hats protect your hair, skin, and eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. A perfect wardrobe staple whether you’re at the beach, pool, or park!
And don’t forget…
A smile! It’s no joke that happy girls are the prettiest. Can you think of anyone who doesn’t shine more brightly when they smile? Remember that, momma, when you’re forced to rush out the door with the kids before remembering your breakfast. You’re beautiful, and you’re brave, and your kiddos are watching you. So smile. And remember that you are one hell of a woman!
It’s All Good
Hopefully one or two of these tips will inspire your summer wardrobe style. It doesn’t take much. In fact, often, less is more! A simple necklace, a functional hat… it can transform your look, and even better, how you feel. 😉
