How to Dress for a Day Out-with kids

Having kids shouldn’t mean sacrificing your sense-of-style. Sure, maybe wearing white pants isn’t the best choice on a day out with your kids because you know you won’t even make it out the door before you have a dirty handprint or nose-boogers ruining your look. But, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other flexible, kid-proof, and fashionable outfits for a mom like yourself!

Here are a couple ideas for your next day out with your kiddos!


T-shirt Dresses & Sneakers

Dresses are perfect for on-the-go moms who want to remain comfortable yet feel put together and stylish. Not to mention that dresses are easy to throw on and you don’t even have to think about finding bottoms to match! For days where you are strolling your little one around while window shopping, slip on a t-shirt dress and a pair of white sneakers and you are ready to walk out the door in confidence and style.

Basic shirt & High-Waisted Jeans

Every mom wants an easy, go-to outfit that is effortless. Something that makes her look good and feel good. Nothing says comfort and style like a classic tee and high-waisted jeans. Whether you’re heading to a coffee date with a baby on your hip or plan on chasing your two-year-old all afternoon, this outfit is sure to keep you looking stylish.

In order to spice up this look, you can tie a jacket around your waist or switch the basic tee for a flowy top and now you are ready for any impromptu meeting with your girlfriends.


Leggings & Literally Anything Else

There should be a rule that as soon as you have a baby in your arms a dozen pairs of leggings should magically appear in your closet. Leggings are great because they look good with everything and they never go out of style. Not to mention how practical they are for bending down and kissing the owies away at the playground.

For a quick outfit for a day out with your kid, grab a pair of leggings and pair it with fashionable activewear or a basic tee with a long jacket. A bright scarf can add a pop of color any season of the year and really make the look come together!

BONUS TIP: Large Tote Bag

Every mom has a million things they need to carry besides their child. A large tote not only adds a special touch to your outfit (and an air of ‘woman-on-a-mission’ as you walk through Walmart) but also helps you carry band aids, snacks, toys, diapers, bottles, and your phone that you always seem to misplace at the most inconvenient time.

Next time you’re planning on spending the day out with your troop of mini-me’s, don’t think you have to compromise your style for comfort and practicality. Rock that t-shirt dress. Embrace colorful scarves. And don’t forget that large tote to keep your day chaos-free.
