6 Cute and Easy Summer Styles for Moms

6 Cute and Easy Summer Styles for Moms

Hey yall! Happy Summer!! I know it’s officially been summer for a month now, but I know this is still a much needed post for some. Most people know how to style looks for spring and fall. We’re pretty much all just trying to stay warm and not sick during winter. But summer? Summer is a hot month where a lot of us just don’t know what to wear. That’s why I’m sharing 6 Cute and Easy Summer Styles for Moms.

I’m putting my favorite styles first. I like to put in as little effort as possible when getting ready in the morning. I think these looks accomplish that without looking like I’ve completely given up on being fashionable. These outfits are mom life friendly and could be worn casually or dressed up.

 

Dresses

Dresses are my absolute favorite style to wear for summer. You literally don’t have to think about anything other than throwing one on to get ready in the morning.  Wear completely casual with a bun and some sandals. Or dress up with hair down, full makeup and wedges.

Shorts

I also really love shorts. There are endless combinations of tanks, t-shirts or blouses to pair with shorts. Not to mention they make so many cute styles these days! I tend to opt for super soft fabrics and stretchy denim.

Rompers & Jumpsuits

Rompers and jumpsuits are another really cute, easy style for summer. I love all the patterns, especially stripes and florals. They are great at making this mama feel stylish while still being comfortable.

Loungewear

If you’re a stay at home or work from home mom, you’re probably used to living in sweats. If not, these casual comfy clothes can go beyond home and double as work out wear. They’re also really great for running errands. I pretty much live in these all year long!!

One Piece Swimsuit

A swimsuit may seem like a random choice as far as legitimate summer styles go, but hear me out. You can wear a one-piece swimsuit as a body suit! Pair it with shorts or jeans. You could also add a kimono for extra coverage/layering. Perfect for beach to town!

Comfy Denim

I gotta be honest, jeans are my last choice when it comes to summer outfits. In South Carolina it’s 80°+ with a heat index of over 100°, almost every day. Honestly, I don’t know how we’re not all running around naked. But, for those rare times we’re in a cold spell, or air-conditioning, I’ll throw on a pair of extremely soft jeans. I really like distressed denim, because it adds a little extra airflow.

If you’ve noticed, I always have really simple, basic outfits with little to no accessories. That’s because I’m a mom and I don’t think about accessories, handbags or shoes. I just think “Am I dressed and presentable?”. Also, I’m usually carrying a diaper bag, so I don’t really have a use for a  huge collection of handbags at the moment.  All these styles, I live by, but they would be really easy to accessorize! Also, if you see something you like, but don't see an exact product detail for it, leave me a comment and I'll see if I can find a different link for you, sometimes they aren't always available. What about you? What are your favorite summer styles?
