Mom Style for 4th of July

TendArticle_HuggiesV3_slice3

DISCLOSURE-BAR-703-1

The heat is on and moms need to know how to keep their cool. Of course that means having the right gear and style that can go from playground to party.

We’ve teamed up with Huggies® to put together a look book of mom-friendly fashion and must-haves to be prepared while out and about. Working with top fashion illustrator, Inslee Haynes, we styled five signature looks for busy moms on the go.
Let’s focus on two of them that are perfect now that things are heating up!

First, let’s all shout hurrah that the maxi dress hasn’t gone out of style! This dress is so comfortable you might as well be in pajamas, but here’s the thing…it looks so chic. The key is dressing it up with an espadrille or wedge sandal.

The above look is styled in a red stripe–pretty perfect for a 4th of July picnic or backyard BBQ. Pair it with the striped Huggies Clutch ‘n’ Clean* refillable wipes and some “arm candy” (aka layered bangles) and you and your kiddos will be party ready – and prepared for any cookout mess. The fun strap makes the wipes versatile and accessible wherever you go from running errands to lunch to the pool!

Heading to a parade or to see the fireworks? Go super casual – pack a picnic and dress for relaxation and fun. Denim shorts are perfect for this summer. They can hold up to sessions at the neighborhood playground while looking pulled together when paired with a colorful cardigan, bright sneakers and your dotted Huggies Clutch ‘n’ Clean refillable wipes. The strong, soft and absorbent Triple Clean* layers are great for tackling juice spills or watermelon seeds. Speaking of sneakers? Have you seen the collaboration J Crew and New Balance? These are so perfect for the active mom! We also love the Womens Merona® Lari Boat Shoe at Target or Old Navy’s Women Active Sneakers for cost effective shoe options this summer.

Mom Style Has Never Been Hotter

huggies clutch and clean, new mom fashion, expecting style, cool gear for moms
Motherhood rocks. I’m not just talking about the mad love you feel for your babies, I’m talking about the style. Gone are the days of muumuus and slouchy sweatpants. Motherhood is now H.O.T.

Maybe we have the all the celebrity bumps to thank. From Drew Barrymore to Kerry Washington to Giselle Bundchen, it’s no longer necessary to hide from the public eye when pregnant or with the new babies.

Fashion has never been more exciting for moms. And all this style has spilled over into baby gear too. Trendy strollers are the norm. Diaper bags come in all the hottest colors from the runway. And nursery design is one of the most pinnable topics on Pinterest. Now Huggies has added attended to a detail that moms have always known about – that being a mom is all about being prepared to tackling messes (big and small) while out and about!

Clutch ‘n’ Clean  refillable wipes which are just like the moms I know and love, purposeful, stylish and ready for a good time. We helped the three signature spring prints at a blogger brunch Huggies Blogger Brunch  in NYC this winter, now we’re thrilled to share the results of the collaboration.

We worked with a top fashion illustrator, Inslee Haynes, to create these five signature looks to inspire you to step out in style this spring (no matter if it is the playground, the boardroom or the dance floor on date night). Let’s take a look at the first drawing. I like to call this one “Pregnancy Chic.” Style your maxi with a low bun or messy ponytail. Love the big oversized Jackie O. sunglasses (because new moms are always dying for more sleep). The cute fedora can hide hair that isn’t freshly washed. Playful bracelets stacked on her arm and comfortable & stylish espadrilles on her feet. A slouchy jean jacket is the perfect layering piece over top.

Even a Playground Playdate can be chic! The boyfriend cut-off is every mom’s best friend. Denim is the perfect item for the playground–the key is to add some feminine touches. We’ve added a cascading bright cardigan and hoop earrings to show your softer side. Since you might want to join your child in the sandbox or slide, keep the footwear simple like a great pair of colored sneakers.

This look is called Casual & Comfy. The white jean is a must have for the warm weather. Pair it with a floral, flowing top and a low wedge sandal and you’ll look pulled together without being overdone. Keep the hair simple–for a day of running errands try the fishtail braid. Not much jewelry is needed, maybe a few simple silver bangles and you’re done. Don’t forget your go-to’s like toys and wipes to make sure you’re prepared for anything, even at the grocery store!

working mom style, office maternity lookds
We know you work hard for the money--that’s why you deserve fabulous Working Mom fashions. You’ll likely have a few staple pieces that you wear again and again. The key is dressing them up with accessories. Here the basic black pant is made a little more exciting by a bold cobalt blazer. A few trendy accessories make this outfit pop. Try a leopard flat with all of your basic workwear to make it feel modern.

And I might have save my best for last–Parent’s Night Out: Keep romance alive by always having a LBD on hand. For spring a simple nude heel with a peep toe adds just enough glamour. Style your hair in a messy bun to show off your glow. Go bold with a colorful statement necklace that flatters the scoop of the dress. The finishing touch? Treat yourself to a manicure in orchid–it’s the color of the year!

At the event, Nicole spoke about the evolution of the diaper bag and how much it has changed from the basic bags to the options that we have today, including the new  HUGGIES Clutch ‘n’ Clean Wipes.  She also shared some fashionable looks and how the clutch can effortless fit into your life. She showcased looks for date night, a day at the playground, those for a working mom and casual day – all incorporating these beautiful new clutches. As a part of their ad campaign, the breakfast was also a way to ask us what we thought about the looks that were picked out as we gave our input and feedback. These looks will be featured on Huggies in a lookbook so that you all can see how fun and easy it is to put them together as well as still be fashionable as a mom.

Additionally, the event showcased various fashionable looks from Destination Maternity where myself, Accessories and Style Expert, Pamela Pekerman and Scherrie of Thirty Mommy modeled three different looks that we could wear during our pregnancies. This included a flowery yellow dress on Pamela, chic white jeans, a striped top and a jean jacket on Sherrice and a long orange dress that I wore. We all held on to our new HUGGIES Clutch ‘n’ Clean Wipes as Nicole talked about how these looks can be enhanced with accessories and worn for a date night, work or to the playground.
