When you´ve got kids, especially young ones, you are always on your feet. You spend a lot of time running around and playing with them. So, you need to dress appropriately. It is no fun teetering after a toddler in full flight wearing heels. Or, trying to pick them up when you are wearing a skirt that is that bit too tight or short.
As a mum, you do need to think a bit more about what you wear. But, as you will see, that certainly does not mean you cannot look great and dress fashionably. Far from it, having to be ready for anything can inspire you to try out looks you would not otherwise have done.
The jumpsuit is a great example of this. They are really stylish looking, but also highly practical. You can see all of the styles here. The fact that there is plenty of choice makes it easy to find a cut that will look good on you.
Flowing maxi skirts and dresses
If you want a more glamorous look, try a maxi skirt or dress. They look wonderful on virtually anyone. On a hot summer day, they are ideal for taking the kids to the park or the beach.
Wrap skirts that offer great freedom of movement
For even greater freedom of movement, try a wrap skirt. The split at the front means you can easily stride out or even run when you need to. You can also buy wrap dresses. But with these, you need to be careful to buy one that stays in place when you bend forward.
Leggings or jeans
For colder days leggings or jeans are a great option. They are comfortable and can be paired with virtually anything, so are a good addition to virtually any woman´s wardrobe.
A stylish swimming costume
On very hot days, being able to take the kids swimming is a big relief. It is a great way for them to cool off and burn off some energy. So, if you have not already done so, get your swimming costume out and try it on. If it does not fit or you feel you don´t look your best you can always buy a new one. Again, there is plenty of choice. There are some really flattering costumes available.
These days it is easy to pick up tankinis and high-waist bikinis, which are ideal if you are carrying a little more extra weight than you would like. This simple buying guide will help you to choose the best swimwear style for you.
If you follow the tips above, you should have what you need to be able to get out and about with the family. Particularly, during the summer holidays, which are coming up like a steam train. They really are not as far away as you think, so now is the time to start preparing for them. To make sure you are ready, why not take a look at my Summer Holiday Plan article and get started early.
