Summer in San Diego brings lots of warm weather and sunny days so my usual uniform of Jeans and a fun tee isn't cutting it. So today I want to show you my mom summer uniform.
Life consists of being on the go at play dates, park visits, errand running, projects at home and chasing Matilda pretty much everywhere. So a causal and practical mom summer uniform is a must. The California vibe is lots of basic tanks and shorts but I like a bolder look so its been fun to try and find a mix between Sydney and San Diego style that works for my busy mom life at the moment.
I pretty much live in shorts and my J Crew Factory denim roll up's are a staple. I love to match that with a tank or tee with some interest, just like this Madewell Aloha ringer tank (my most recent purchase) To mix things up I love to wear a patterned short and Forever 21 have some great inexpensive options that will last me through summer and can easily be changed next season. Again I'll team it up with a tee or even a flowy vintage top but the key is to keep it simple and let the shorts do all the talking. Just to keep things fresh I keep a few dresses in the mix - I like things to be flowy so I don't feel too restricted - and anything too formal just isn't going to work (and I'd probably get stares from other moms thinking I've got tickets on myself haha)
To cap off my mom summer uniform my shoes need to be cute but easy to slip on and off. I pretty much live in my Madewell braided sightseer sandals but a cute pair of kicks like my New Balance 420's are great for when the day is go go go.
Love the look? Now you can shop my mom summer uniform doing double duty of casual and cute. Just check out these goodies! And while you are at it let me know if you have any wardrobe staples you love. I'm always after mom approved cute clothes options.
