Summer Essentials

I'm all about practicality when it comes to everyday dressing with my kids.  As much as I would  love to get dressed up my boys are still young so t-shirts and shorts are what works for me right  now, when I'm not in gym  clothes ;).  Even though I live in this "momiform" I still try to dress it up and be fun where I can.

Here are my summer essentials  for a cute "momiform":


Summer Essentials


I never go anywhere without earrings and rotate between my pearls and these Kate Spade studs which I own in a few colors.  My Michael Kors watch is another piece of jewelry I never leave the house with. I'm old school and still wear a watch :) I usually wear a long necklace or bracelets too but since Matthew is in the grabby stage I've put those on hold for awhile.  I pretty much only wear flat sandals and keep my Jack Rogers, TB Miller sandals,  and Havaianas on constant rotation.

As you know I've proclaimed my love for the J.Crew v neck tissue tees for awhile  now but I've recently fallen in love with these Target ones.  My newest love this summer are the Lilly Pulitzer Callahan shorts.  I used to love my J.Crew chinos but I've become obsessed with the LP Callahans.  I've been trying to add more color in my wardrobe and I love all the fun prints. The 5in inseam just feels more appropriate for me these days. I also think they are very flattering on me right now more so than my old J.Crew ones. If you  don't like the print they come in solid pink, white, aqua and navy. 

Do you have a summer uniform that you wear all the time?  Do you have a certain brand of short or t-shirt that you love?  Do you live in flip flops like me in the summer?

  1. Love those combinations! Perfect colors for summer. Your momiform is similar to mine although I usually can't be persuaded out of wearing gym shorts

  3. Pretty much what my mommiform looks like! Except I have blue jean shorts that I wear with my target v-neck tees - soft, comfy & inexpensive! I have print shorts I'm just hoping I will fit back in them! Ha! But, I pretty much wear the same thing!

  4. I love all of your selections! I'm the same way, I don't leave the house without earrings. Without a necklace, sure, without earrings, never!

  5. That's pretty much my non-momiform come the weekend (and also when not in workout clothes, whether I worked out or not hah). Love all the Lilly shorts!

  10. OMG we are the same person. Pearls or Kate Spade studs? Story of my life. And I'm all about the tees and chinos with Tory Burch flip flops, my Ray Bans and Michael Kors watch. Seriously, the same person. ;)
