I don’t wear shorts. Really, I don’t.

During the summer I wear skirts and dresses and maybe one pair of shorts that I might wear to the pool or beach. I just don’t like how they make me look, how they enhance my thighs and how I suffer from the chub rub. However, I’m happy to see that fitted longish (bermuda) and boyfriend style shorts (a bit looser and also longer than others) are in and they actually look wearable.

I put together some of the better looking and I think better fitting boyfriend shorts for us mamas. My requirement is that they have a bit of stretch and aren’t too short so that you don’t chafe and have to keep pulling them down.

Your host for this week is Momma in Flip Flops 

This post is about real mamas who have real style. While we all fall into the jeans and t-shirt rut we are encouraging our fellow moms to take the time to dress their best and rock it like the rock star moms they are!

Did you look especially good this week, were the other moms at the playground complimenting your outfit? 

Share the look that worked for both potty training, the playground and coffee with a friend and let’s inspire each other with some real mom fashion! This linky is hosted by Thrifty and Chic Mom and Very Busy Mama.

Brush Longer with the Disney Magic Timer App by Oral B (VIDEO)

Sponsored by Oral-B. Cute kids and video ideas are my own. “brusha brusha brusha…” Okay, I admit, I had no idea you are supposed to brush for 2 minutes. Did you? Either way, the Disney Magic Timer App by Oral B (which is free) makes brushing fun by letting you — I mean your kids — create a profile, scan the chosen tooth brush, keep track of how many times a day they have brushed (something I need to work on) and gives them cool {Read More}

Bringing Sheer Nude Tights Back in 2015

This post is sponsored by L’eggs Sheer Energy® Sheer tights. Styling ideas are my own. Call me crazy, but right after deciding to show the world what I look like in a swimsuit I opted to wear sheer, yes sheer NUDE tights (or is it panty hose?!) for a TV appearance. I have no idea what they are called these days because it’s been AGES since I’ve worn them. Related Post: Loving not Loathing #MySwimsuitStyle Colored and textured tights for me {Read More}

Up and Away: Safe Medicine Storage in your Home

Share Button

This is a sponsored post in partnership with KnowYourOTCs. Summer means fun in the sun, cannonballing into the pool, jumping waves at the beach and… kids spending more time at home which can lead to trouble. Their natural curiosity leads them to open cabinets, drawers and more often than not finding medicine bottles, eye drops, sun creams and lotions that are dangerous when swallowed. Therefore safe medicine storage is crucial to ensure safety in your home. I cannot tell you how many {Read More}

LOVING not Loathing #MySwimsuitStyle this Summer

For years I didn’t wear a swimsuit. I refused to because I despised the way I looked. We are intelligent, beautiful women who have started our own business ventures, have endured hardships, many of us have given birth, we have gone above and beyond what was expected of us —  yet we cannot bring ourselves to wear a swimsuit. I want ALL of you to enjoy the summer and to accept and love yourselves. Trust me, it’s not easy for {Read More}

Braving Bright Shorts this Summer

Take the plunge and join the #MySwimsuitStyle summer challenge! I don’t like to wear shorts — I prefer dresses and skirts during the summer, BUT my motto is TRY IT ON and well, with these group of stylish mamas, how could I say no? Mine need to be longer to avoid the dreaded chub rub and because, I’m gordita for life. Still it’s just a matter of finding the right look for YOU. I made the time to shop alone with {Read More}

Love Yourself this Summer

Until 3 years ago, I hadn’t worn a bathing suit in almost 10 years — simply because I didn’t like how I looked. I wasted years being miserable during the summer months and missing out on fun with family and friends — see full story here. As my friend and blogger Monique wrote recently in a swimsuit post “turn swimsuit anxiety into swimsuit happiness” and that’s what I’m setting out to do!
