Summer Essentials + Tips

A couple of posts back, I wrote about my weekday Sports Mom Essentials. Now, that’s it mid-may, the summer is now creeping up, and the spring fresh breeze weather is getting a lot toastier, it’s time to share my summer \ look for the sports mom, or mom on the go for summer. If you enjoy being outside with the family, and love being under the sun, take note of all the weekend essentials!!

Summer Essentials:

What To Wear:

  1. Striped Short Sleeve T-Shirt Dress
    T-Shirt dresses have been totally trending right now!! They can be easily dressed up or down! Super comfortable, breathable, and perfect for any size, short or tall!
  2. Low Top Sneakers
    Chuck Taylors/Sperry Top Sider/Vans, just to name a few…I’m currently sporting my New Balances 501
    I’m currently eyeing a pair of navy colored canvas Sperry’s at the moment.
  3. Weekend Hat
    When I wear my fedora hat, it means, no stress, and let’s have fun in the sun! Even my boys call it “mommy’s weekend hat.” It definitely set’s a tone, of a chill and relaxed mommy. I purchased mine for $10 at the mall few years back, and it’s lasted me this long! Here’s a similar fedora hat from JC Penny.
  4. Sunnies
    Paired always with my hat, I have my sun shades. I’ve been wearing sunglasses since I was 18, and after working at a luxury optical office, I call myself a bit of sunglasses snob. From Coach, Juicy, Fendi, Tom Ford, Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Judith Leiber, I’ve tried them all on. All are great, and I highly suggest, if you’re a simple, sunglass wearer such as I am, I’d suggest buying a good high quality one!! (It’s soo worth it!)

Grab And Go:

Having 2 growing boys, plus their dad with me on a day out, it’s important to pack food in the car. Even if its a small trip to the mall, or afternoon errands going to Target & Sports Authority. Someone is always hungry. And before you give in and offer the ICEE and popcorn combo, or a cake-pop at Starbucks, you’ll be so thankful that you had packed some food. You’ll be saving tons of money this way, if this becomes a crucial routine out the door.

  1. Canvas Tote
  2. Magazine
  3. Sun Block
  4. Water Bottle (S’well Water Bottle)
  5. Cold Fresh Fruit
  6. Cooler
  7. Capri-Suns/Waters/Sports Drinks
  8. Food Containers with lunch/mid-day snack

Keep In The Car:

All of the below items have become a staple to my back trunk. Whatever season it is in the year, or sports season, these have stayed in my car since the kids were young. I promise you, even if you don’t intend to stop by the park or beach, these items become SO clutch.

  1. Beach Towel/Blanket
  2. Baby wipes
  3. Anti-bacterial
  4. Dry Snacks
  5. Camping Chairs

 There’s my summer essentials and some tips! Stay tuned for some more summer fun posts, as summer vacation comes closer! Happy May, and stay cool!
