Styles for Mom
Summer time screams wedges and sandals. I adore summer footwear, but finding sandals that are mom friendly can be a little tricky. I love to look stylish, but I will not sacrifice comfort or functionality when it comes to footwear. I love the amazing styles from Baretraps. Their sandals are so comfortable and they are easy to wear and chase around after my kids at the park. I have both the Wavery (pictured) and the Saylor, and I get compliments on both pairs everytime I wear them! Whether you are looking for something to pair with skirts and jeans or sandals for your next outdoor adventure, Baretraps have just what you need!
The summer sun brings out different clothing and for some that means sleevless, sheer tops, or low-to-no back beauties. But no matter what you are wearing, what is underneath is just as important and what is on top! True&Co. has an amazing selection of bras to perfect your look. From active wear to the perfect amount of lace they have what you are looking for and they will shop for you. True&Co has completely changed the way you shop for intimates. You simply take a 5 minute quiz and poof, you have a customized shop ready to choose from. I ordered several items after taking my fit quiz. I was nervous because they were different from my normal bra size, but I trusted the quiz and everything fit beautifully! They are my favorite bras to date. This summer, pick up something sexy for yourself from True&Co.
Athleta is known for their amazing athletic wear and swim suits, and for good reason. They are made for the highest quality materials and they really hold their shape. I can’t get over how much I love their Quest Chaturanga™ Tight, I am pretty sure I need a least six more pairs, one for each day of the week. But, what I didn’t realize was that they have an amazing selection of regular clothing as well. Everything you need for your summer adventures. From hiking, to yoga, to shopping and walks on the beach you are sure to find the perfect outfit from Athleta. My absolute favorite pieces include these New Balance Sneakers and these Trekkie Joggers. If you need me, I will be wearing them all summer.
Gorgeous Picks for Babies & Toddlers
My little girl is all about pink, frills, dresses, and bows. That’s why it’s a no-brainer when she repeatedly chooses to wear her Taylor Joelle Vintage Bow Dress. Made with a comfortable stretchy bodice and soft layers of mesh, this dress is perfect for twirling, dancing, and keeping cool during the summer. I love how my daughter can dress this outfit down with a comfortable pair of sandals or wear it to church with her gold sparkly flats. Not to mention, watermelon just tastes that much sweeter when you’re wearing an adorable summer dress 😉 Another one of my other favorites from Taylor Joelle includes their Ballerina Peplum Top. So many beautiful choices perfect for my pretty little lady.
I love shopping for swimsuits and new styles for my kids to wear out in the sun, but I worry about their skin. Snapper Rock is the leading children’s swimwear brand with UV50+ protection, blocking 98% of all harmful rays. Just in time for summer, Snapper Rock has some new styles including bikinis, shorts, rash guards and one-pieces. Stay protected and fun with over 80 styles, colors and prints. I love that my little girl’s 3-piece Hydrangea set comes with a bikini top and a rash guard. Snapper Rock also carries swim cover ups and rompers in the cutest styles and prints, like this Navy Pineapple Jumpsuit. My kids are saying stylish and safe this year with Snapper Rock.
I am always concerned about protecting my kid’s from sun, we use sunscreen and cover up as much as possible, but protecting their eyes is just as important as protecting their skin. Babiators, the world’s cutest aviator-style sunglasses, provide 100% UVA and UVB protection. They are durable and tough, just like children. They are made of pliable rubber and shatter-resistant lenses, making the practically indestructible. Babiators are available for babies to children 14-years old and come in a variety of colors and cool patterns. My favorite part? If your child’s Babiators products are lost or broken within one year of purchase, Babiators will send you a FREE replacement (all you pay is shipping!) How cool is that?
