With the temperature rising and people looking for a cure for the winter blahs, spring and summer 2011 feature styles that bring a breath of fresh air.
For on- the- go mommies juggling kids, chores and personal time, Coverdale recommends the following practical, economical style tips for summer.
•Buy transition clothes. Invest in clothing that camouflages your figure as your weight fluctuates from pregnancy to postpartum. For example, dresses with an empire waist and long tank tops that can be scrunched around the waist fashionably and effectively cover bulge.
•Layers, layers, layers. We all know kids can make a mess…which often means mommy gets dirty cleaning it all up. Dressing in lightweight layers allows you to remove some clothing items as necessary when inevitable mishaps occur.
•Get a great comfy suit. Consider trading in your jeans for a trendy comfy suit every now and then. Divas N Babes offers a stylish, lightweight comfy suit made of spandex and stretch cotton so you can be cool and move freely throughout your day.
•Ditch the sneakers. Instead of wearing those chunky sneakers, opt for several pairs of fashionable ballet flats. Not only are these shoes versatile and affordable, they also allow you to get dolled up without much effort.
•Get glam…quickly. If you don’t have time for a full face of make- up, be sure to have your eyebrows professionally arched, invest in a great pair of fashionable sunglasses and keep your favorites shades of lip gloss handy. Together, these few items can make the difference in your on- the- go look!
•No caps, please. Instead of borrowing your husband’s baseball cap for the next round of errands, wear a wide headband. Different colors and textures of these popular items can stylishly help conceal your bed head.
•Don’t be afraid of skirts! So what if you can’t fit into the denim mini you wore 10 years ago? You can still wear knee- length skirts with Capri leggings and look great! Leggings underneath the skirt allow you to feel feminine as you bend and move to keep up with the kids.
•Wear your MVA – Most Valuable Accessory. Divas N Babes’ selection of r ring slings and Mei Tais allow modern mommies to embrace baby wearing as a means to nurture their children and manage their busy lifestyles without sacrificing function and comfort. These high- fashion carriers are available in a variety of colors, fabrics and designs to mix and match with seasonal clothing.
