Once upon a time ago there were all these fashion rules. Then, somewhere along the line, people decided to toss out those rules and live a little! However, as a mom of three little ones, I still follow a few rules! Or maybe I should say that I’ve rewritten a few rules…
5 Fashion Rules for Moms
1. Wear white at your own risk!
I love white. It is my go to. I love white capris or jeans paired with a cute top. I love a basic white top or tee paired with jeans or khaki shorts. Add a splash of color and done! But what I don’t love is the inevitable when I’m wearing white because my toddler could care less if it’s before Labor Day or after Labor Day or whatever! Little hands covered in dirt, melted popsicles, chocolate, and sidewalk chalk are like magnets to white clothing. So when I am brave enough to wear white (because, seriously, I love it!), I’ll jump down to rule #5.
2. Sneakers aren’t just for the gym!
I often look at pictures of moms wearing their cute heals and wedges and think to myself, “How on earth do you do it?” I’m literally chasing a two year old around all Summer! The boy does not sit still. And when I do get him to sit for a moment, I’m usually up helping one of the other two kids. My back and feet ache just thinking about wearing heels or wedges! Pairing a cute pair of sneakers with an outfit is my saving grace.
3. Forget matching your handbag with your shoes. Just be glad you left the house without a diaper bag!
Someday I’ll be past the diaper bag carrying days and maybe when that happens I’ll be much more conscious of how stylish my handbag is. But, for now, when I do manage to leave the house and I’m not having to take a diaper bag with me, I’m happy to grab the one bag in my house that is not riddled with toys and snacks and other kid remnants.
4. Picnics in the backyard are a great reason to wear a dress!
As much as I love white, I also love maxi dresses! They are the perfect Summer must have because you can chase your kids around in the yard in them during the day and then pair them up with some cute shoes and jewelry for an evening dinner out!
5. Keep it clean!
This is probably the biggest one for me. Regardless of what you love to wear throughout the Summer or how you are pairing your clothes, taking care of your clothes is key! The combination of Tide, Downy, and Bounce is exactly what I need! It’s important to me to keep my clothes looking newer as long as possible, whether that means keeping my maxi dresses bright and colorful or my whites free of handprint messes.
