Summertime styling as a Mom is an interesting thing. I was in need of a few things this summer- a good suit, some fun nail polish, and a UV Shirt.
As for the suit I needed something functional for the pool and yet I didn't want it to scream "Mom" even though I'm holding the best title around. I was in search of a one piece this year that would still be young and fun but also work with a baby tugging at me. I ended up going with Boden's Fiftie's Swimsuit. I love the pattern, ruched sides, and overall fit of this suit. A winner.
As for the nails I got all brave and got a blue and coral. I prefer the blue on my toes and like the light coral on the nails. No time to get manis and pedis this summer and even when I did have time I'm happy to do nails myself. I don't think I'm brave enough to do the ring-finger trend though. Have you done it?
Ah, the UV shirt. You may have a suit that doesn't scream Mom, but then you throw a UV shirt on and your cards are all out there. Oh, and you have a baby in tow. I for one am quite over getting any more sun in my life so I quickly ran out to Athleta when the store opened around us and got this top. UV 50 means if I can't get screen on my back or shoulders, no problem.
Have you purchased some new gear this summer? Do tell.
