Cool and Comfortable Style Tips for Busy Mums

0 comments

Getting ready in the morning sometimes feels like mission impossible, especially when you have to get your kids ready as well. The crazy routine is always fun and heart-warming, but it probably rarely leaves you with room for yourself, let alone enough time to plan your outfits and spruce your look up. This is why it’s important to learn some quick yet stylish tips that will make a huge difference in the way you look, feel and perceive your morning routine.

Stock up on the basics

 

First things first – basics to the rescue! There’s no better tip for busy mums when fashion is concerned and especially getting ready in the morning. When you have some free time, make sure to go through your basics, get more if necessary and visualize the go-to pairings. These can be basic tees and shirts, jeans and slip on pants as well as a nicely fitted blazer and cardigan for layering. It’s important to keep things plain enough so that you can mix and match them easily in a rush.

Stick to the flattering colors

You don’t have to ditch patterns completely, but in order to make things easier for yourself in the morning and make sure that you look cool and stylish at the same time, it would be best to mostly stick to a couple of colors that you know look great on you. When you’re looking for trendy women’s fashion for a mum who’s rather busy, you probably won’t encounter a bunch of wild patterns anyway. Introduce a few white and black items for layering and you should be all set!

It's crucial to accessorize

 

 

In the end, it’s not the clothes that make an outfit great and your look outstanding, but the accessories. So, with your wardrobe ready for quick grabs, make sure that you have a proper selection of accessories laid out for you as well. Again, you might want to choose staple jewellery for yourself which will always wait for you on your vanity – a nice watch, ring(s), dainty earrings and a necklace are more than enough. When you buy your shoes, make sure to have some variety but also a multipurpose quality to them. That way, you won’t have too many pairs to overwhelm you but the ones you do own will match perfectly with everything you own as well as different occasions. Do the same with your bags and throw in a staple scarf for good measure.

Come up with an outfit the night before

 

Once you put your kids to bed, you have a bit of time for yourself before you drift off to dreamland. If possible, use this time to come up with your outfit for tomorrow. That way, you can put more thought into it and maybe do something a bit different, just to spice your look up now that you can afford to take your time.

Declutter!

In order to wear clothes that look positively stunning on you and find your way around your wardrobe in the morning, it’s also important to get rid of all the items that you’ve been hoarding, maybe even before you got pregnant, but can’t actually remember when you last wore them. This will free up the space so that you can actually see what you have and want to wear on a daily basis. What’s more, you’ll get a clear insight into what you own and what other items you need to buy in order to complete your wardrobe and effectively create different looks.

Everything you do for yourself, you can also do for your children. This will speed up the process of getting ready in the morning for all of you, which is always a great thing. And it will also let you enjoy styling your looks a bit more.

    As your big day approaches, you are going to think about more things and details than you ever thought possible. Starting with your wedding dress and hairstyle, nail polish, makeup, flowers for your bouquet, shoes, and of course, jewellery. While for some, this might not be important, others know that it’s those different jewellery pieces that are going tie your dream wedding day look together. If you’re not sure how to find the perfect wedding jewellery, we’ve prepared a few guidelines for you. Perfect necklaces In the past, women wore strands of pearls on their wedding day because it was tradition, but these days they are much more creative with their necklace choices. With so many different necklines to choose from, it was only natural that necklaces will change accordingly. Brides in love with sweetheart necklines will look great wearing those strands of pearls and delicate necklaces with pendants, but if you’re thinking about a daring V neckline, it’s going to look better with a longer necklace with a big pendant. Brides who decide to wear a scoop neckline wedding dress will look amazing wearing a shorter necklace with pendants that add volume. Pearls reimagined We mentioned that pearls used to be worn by brides a lot, but that doesn’t mean they’re obsolete. On the contrary, there is something about them that makes them perfect for a bridal look – they’re elegant, delicate, and give that soft touch that makes women look and feel like princesses. They are romantic too – there’s no need to cut and polish them; they come perfectly formed and ready to be worn. That being said, more women are choosing to wear pearl jewellery that’s not really traditional – open rings, studded earrings, and simple pearl pendants are very popular. Eye-catching earrings Over the past few years, brides have replaced their delicate earrings with statement ones, and they seem to be as popular among wedding guests and bridesmaids too. Wearing large earrings will draw attention to the bride’s face and make her beaming smile stand out even more. Teardrop and chandelier statement earrings are among the most popular pieces of bridal jewellery in Australia , and they look particularly nice on brides who wear their hair in half updos or elegant buns. You can also choose to wear large hoops or drop earrings but make sure you coordinate metals and stones to the rest of your bridal jewellery. Beautiful headpieces Just when you thought that delicate tiaras are the only thing suitable for a bride to wear, beautiful, bold headpieces take the stage. Big headbands embellished with crystals, pearls, and flowers are wholly bridal and insanely glamorous, and they will make any bride look like royalty. What is more, they are also very practical because they help keep the hair out of the bride’s face and will add elegance to any wedding hairstyle too. They are incredibly popular in Spain thanks to various designers, but Buffuna Hats seems to be particularly popular among brides. Mixing vintage and modern If you don’t want to buy something that you’re only going to wear once, don’t worry – many brides are choosing to wear jewellery that’s not too extravagant that that can be worn on other occasions too. If there is a special piece that means a lot to you, you can find a way to incorporate it into your wedding look. You can build the rest of your bridal jewellery choices around the one piece that’s special to you and continue to wear it in the years to come. Your wedding jewellery should subtly complement your look, but if you’re a fan of bold and statement pieces, there is nothing stopping you from rocking them on your wedding day. If you’re a fan of subtle vintage pieces, you should try to make them work with your wedding dress, but you shouldn’t be afraid of trying something new if you feel like changing your style. Wedding jewellery trends are constantly changing, and you can easily find something that works for you.

    The body positivity movement is growing by the day, and it has taught women of all shapes and sizes how to be proud of their body, and how to flaunt it in some of the newest trends. Since summer has a fashion that requires a lot of naked skin, here are some tips on how to look and feel beautiful with a few summer essentials. High-waisted mom shorts Thankfully, the high-waisted trend has been around for years now, and it is the perfect one for summertime. It flatters every figure because it makes your waist appear small, and accentuates your booty, and legs. Besides that, high-waisted, mom shorts go with everything, so you can wear it for daytime activities, beach trips, or even crazy nights out. Find the perfect crop top to go with it, and show your body proudly. Spaghetti strap tops During hot, summer months, comfort is our number one concern. So, picking pieces that make us feel comfortable, and light is a must. Spaghetti strap tops are the perfect item because they provide just that, but they also look very chic and cute. You can pair them with anything from shorts, and jeans, to skirts, and oversized pants. We recommend bright colors, or even prints like animal or floral since they have been pretty trendy in the last few seasons. The perfect bikini Everyone's favorite activity during summer is probably sunbathing on beautiful beaches, swimming, and just spending time by the water. This all requires good, quality swimwear. If you are wondering what style to choose, learn from Australian women, since summer comes there first, and they usually dictate the trends. You can find anything you want including gorgeous plus size swimwear in Australia that will make you feel confident and beautiful. One-piece, high-waisted, briefs, Brazilian briefs, triangles, padded, there is something for everyone. Slides Slides are back ! And the designs are cuter than ever. Finally, the brands have created comfortable footwear that provides support and looks very trendy. Classic black, brown, or brighter colors like neon, red, and orange are some of the choices. If you want them to stand out, and be that one piece you can create whole looks around, leopard print is a safe choice, or you can go for details like buckles, or pearls. Wear them for many different occasions with dresses, skirts, and shorts. Hair care Summer outfits and looks are normally light as we tend to be as comfortable as possible. That is why we can dedicate more time to our hair and skin. And not only that. Women's confidence is connected to their hair a lot. Besides, hot and humid weather, as well as salt, and water can damage it, so we can try to give it the best care, and make it shiny, soft, and beautiful. Make sure the hair treatments you use outside of the salon are lightweight, so they don't damage your hair, or make it look heavy and oily. They can help you detangle your hair easily, and care for it during summer months. Skincare and makeup You probably already know how important skincare is, especially natural skincare products that will help with acne, breakouts, and damaged summer skin. Clay masks, exfoliation, and face oils will provide the perfect base for makeup products. During summer, replace your heavy foundation with BB cream, use blush, and sweep it over your forehead, cheeks, and nose for a natural look. Don't forget eyebrow pencil, mascara, and a tinted lip balm to give you the fresh, no-makeup look, which is perfect for the summer. It is a great way to show off your tan, and feel super confident. Summer is all about interesting designs, bright colors, and comfortable items. We have suggested those that are also trendy, so if you are a fashionista, you can find the perfect ones for you, and create your own list of essentials for the upcoming summer.

Have fun with earrings It seems that earrings are taking the spotlight when jewelry is concerned this Fall/Winter season. And the more ear piercings you have , the better!
