Are you the mom that wears the same tee all the time yet buys your kids new tops for every season? Or what about the mom who lives in leggings yet craves an updated ensemble? Yeah, us moms don’t always put our fashion A-game first, but with Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s time we indulge in a practical upgrade.
Here are 7 fashion finds I’m swooning over especially with summer on the horizon.
1. LIJA Style
My newfound obsession is tennis, even though I played in high school which totally dates me- over 20 years ago. It feels so good to take weekly “me time,” get out on the court, enjoy the sunshine, and work my body… but it feels so much better when I do it in style. Enter LIJA, a Canadian company that makes the best in modern tennis, training, run and yoga apparel. LIJA is known for designing collections where technical performance outfits meets innovative style, flaunting the hottest tank-and-skort sets that’ll have you channel your inner Venus and Serena. My picks: the Draw Tank, Blue Triumph, Match Skort, and Breeze Dress.
2. Tommy John
My husband wears one type of briefs: Tommy John. So that got me thinking… shouldn’t I also experience the best in undergarments and loungewear? Tommy John has the softest- I repeat THE SOFTEST- array of clothing that’ll make any mama feel fab. Tommy John also has great performance shorts and lace PJs you’ll want to live in. Each item flaunts a tagless design with silky, non-pilling micro modal fabric.
3. Warby Parker
If you’re looking for new shades, I’m loving the Warby Parker’s Darcy sunglasses. The modern metal trim and graduated rivet physique makes for the perfect square, sculptural silhouette. Equipped with an anti-scratch coating, these stainless-steel shades are made with CR-39 for maximum clarity and color. Best of all: they’re super chic. Two colors available: Sugar Maple Fade or Marzipan Tortoise with Polished Gold.
4. Deckers Shoes
This summer, give your feet a treat and slide into something cozy: the Deckers X Lab KO-Z SLIDE. The slide offers optimal foot support with thick memory foam, resulting in the most relaxing slipper to ever grace your foot. The KO-Z SLIDE is designed to act as a thermoregulator, keeping your feet at an ideal temperature in all weather. For something more sporty, opt for the X-Scape Sport which combines the look of a classical sneaker and the comfort of a house slipper. Engineered for enhanced breathability, this shoe is ideal for on-the-go mamas.
5. Reef Sandals
For some mommy + me action, score summer sandals from Reef and twin with your son or daughter. For boys, opt for a cool and classy all-day slide. With a water-friendly strap and soft jersey lining, your little man will love the comfiest footbed ever (and it can easily look dressed up). And for you, mama, convertible sandals that can be worn on land or in water; quick-drying and comfy when wet. The dual density footwear supports your stride, and a Velcro back-strap ensures a perfect fit.
6. Carve Designs
If you’re looking for a one-stop shop that covers everything from jeans to suits to tops, peruse Carve Designs… mom’s sure to find some fab fashion that suits her needs and style. For something casual, yet cute- gift mom a LBD, or if she’s into relaxed denim, I’m swooning over these jeans. And when all else fails, buy mom a beach cover up for summer vacay; the coral Harper Hoodie is on point.
7. Baxxe Bra
Make mom feel like a million bucks by treating her to a swanky strapless bra. The Baxxe collection has the most luxe bra-band ever, showcasing a tulle overlay and dusted with golden sequins. Wear it under a finely knit tank, or pair it with a low-back satin top to up your feminine allure. The sweat-resistant performance lining keeps mom cool on warm days and hot nights. #mothersday done right!
