momma style: summer dresses

by mari

easy comfortable summer style for moms - dresses

Summertime always brings a niggling frustration: I’ve never been good with shorts. They always cling in the wrong spot, bind in funny places, and highlight all those nasty dimply bits that I’d much rather be hiding. I just don’t find them comfortable!

As a mom who likes to be involved with my kiddo, I’ve been fighting tooth and nail for cool summer clothes that are still kid-friendly. You know, it needs to be something I can sit on the floor in (longer, fuller skirts), roll around in the grass with if necessary (no precious fabrics!) , swing on swings (can I tuck it around my legs?), etc. Plus, It’s got to cover the mom-tum (without spanx, thanx) and be stylish. No pressure.

I’ve done some browsing for you, and pulled together some super simple options. They’re easy to wear yet stylin’, and still appropriate for daily preschool pick-ups and grocery trips on Tuesdays. Which dress would you wear?

Mari, You hit the nail on the head with this one. I have two summer dresses that I love for the exact reasons you mentioned. (Though my true test is can I garden in it.) It’s been really hard to find replacements for them, thanks for the research and the hope.

LOL, gardening is another great reason!
It’s a hard bill to fill, I’ll admit. But I do love a shopping challenge ;)

It’s good to see pretty comfortable summer dresses for females that are not sexualized
