Summer outfit ideas

Summer has officially begun! There are so many different occasions for a simply stylish Mom over the summer so it’s good to have a few outfits up your sleeve so you’re not stuck wearing the same thing day after day (though that can be fun too, it just will get a bit smelly!)

Wherever your social calendar may take you this summer—be it a plane travel, time by the pool or at the beach, touristing, or shopping with your girl friends —you are bound to need some fresh outfit inspiration.

So, read on for all the need-to-know details and be sure to take notes!

Plane travel is something a lot of us will be doing (with kids ugh!) this summer. I never look further than Sienna Miller for great plane travel outfits! I find my favourite outfit for plane travel is jeggings or boyfriend jeans (for comfort and N.B no sweats!), a cotton blouse (for the hot and sweaty moments), a cardi (for the highly air conditioned plane), an oversized tote and flip flops. I love the Eliora top from Anthropologie , these French Connection coloured jeggings, the Billabong Nada Mas bag and these simple, affordable sandals.

Shopping sprees are always fun but it can get hot and tiring trudging along  cement pavements in the summertime so you always want to have a simple outfit on. While a pretty useless actress, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley does a great job dressing for shopping sprees. A cotton tee, a midi skirt, sandals and sunnies seem to do the trick. I love this Asos floaty midi skirt paired with this American Apparel tee with these wonderful Sam Edelman colour block sandals.

Australians are big travellers and this summer we are looking forward to some touristing. Like me (an Australian, a mom, and a big traveller – that’s where our similarities end!) Miranda Kerr enjoys simply stylish touristing outfits. Here she sports a black maxi dress, a denim jacket and a colourful cloth purse. I love this affordable Old Navy black maxi dress, Old navy denim jacket and this Boho purse.

Hanging at the beach or the pool during the summertime is a no-brainer activity for Moms. While we don’t neccessary want to prance around showing off our post-baby bumps in a swim-suit, we do have to strip down and i find a happy compromise are denim shorts. I love how Dutch model/actress – and Mom Doutzen Kroeswas pulls of these Isabel Marant shorts and a simple 3/4 sleeve cropped tee. I love this longer and more affordable pair from Target and this vintage-look cropped tee from F21.

What are your favourite outfits going to be this summer?
