Spring Look #1 – Navy and White
Skinny jeans are a mom’s best friend! White is a crisp, clean look for spring. Paired with a flowy blouse in navy blue. Accessorize with a white statement necklace and strappy sandals. Add a pop of color with a light blue handbag. Cute!
Spring Look #2 – Green and Orange
Layer a bright green sweater over a plain white tee and a gray-wash jean. A pop of orange complete the look with the fun necklace and comfortable flats.
Spring Look #3 – Teal and Tan
Put your neutral staples to work! Tan jeans, a white button up and gray v-neck cardigan make the base of this easy look. Add a dark brown belt and buckled booties. Accessorize with virtually any color after this! We chose a printed scarf and bag in a great teal shade.
Spring Look #4 – Yellow and Nude
Textured accessories become the neutral in this easy spring look. Lacy flats, a nude scarf and bag let the clothes do the talking. A flowy yellow maxi skirt is feminine and comfortable for mom. A lace belt at the waist of the navy cardigan accentuates your waistline.
Spring Look #5 – Tan and Raspberry
What says spring more than a textured raspberry dress? Support this vibrant color with a tan trench coat and strappy (mom-friendly) wedges. A celery green handbag adds an fun pop of color.
Easy Spring Looks for Momtrepreneurs. Take your style from meetings to macaroni!
Many of us at One Small Child are working moms to young children, just like me. We also have a passion for style. We need looks that are fashionable, appropriate for business settings and kid-friendly. We don’t have time to change our outfits three times a day. We need clothes that will take us from morning meetings to macaroni dinners. Clothes that are comfortable, professional, and resilient. Talk about a challenge! Well, we’ve learned a few tricks along the way. Just for fun, today I’m sharing three of my go-to looks to take your momtrepreneur style from meetings to macaroni.
Momtrepreneur Look 1: I love the versatility of a blazer. This has definitely become a wardrobe staple. Here, I paired it with a flowy peplum blouse and a dark wash skinny jean. I accessorized with sparkly flats and a fun necklace. Why this works for momtrepreneur style: I can throw on my blazer when I’m headed out the door to cover up little baby spills on my shoulder or front. It gives an authoritative look. The flowy blouse adds femininity.
Momtrepreneur Look 2: A printed button-up blouse is topped with a comfy sweater and dark wash skinny jeans. Add a pop of color with the bubble necklace and flats once again. This is another outfit that offers a lot of versatility. If something gets on the sweater, it can be removed and it won’t ruin your look. I’m in the same skinny jeans as the look above. These are another momtrepreneur staple. Jeans are durable, stain resistant and kid-friendly. Because they’re a dark wash, they don’t detract from the professional nature of your look.
Momtrepreneur Look 3: A maxi dress is my third staple. Dresses are super feminine, which I love. A girl just needs a dress every once in a while! Maxi dresses are kid-friendly and so comfortable. Here, I added a cardigan and belt for a professional touch.
Being a business owner, a wife and a mom is a lot to juggle at times. I love One Small Child and I love my work. My first priority, however, has always been my family. Most days striking the perfect balance is a challenge, but I’ve learned a few time management tips that have definitely helped.
Taking time to read scripture in the morning is a must-do for me. Otherwise my day is chaotic and I feel like I struggle to balance everything.
I recently tried something new with dividing my week into days.
- Sundays are all about family. We go to church and we visit grandparents. It’s important to me that my kids have a good relationship with their grandparents, so we make this a priority. We don’t schedule anything else on Sundays.
- Mondays are our get ready for the week days. I make a plan for the week. The kids and I do all the laundry. I make a menu plan and a grocery list. This helps us avoid the last-minute ‘what’s for dinner’ panic. Making sure I have everything I need for each meal makes it so I don’t have to run to the grocery store several times a week.
- Tuesdays are kid-friendly days. I keep Tuesdays open to focus on what they need.
- Wednesdays are my bread-making days and a big kid-running day. A lot of the kids’ lessons and activities happen to fall on Wednesdays, so I wear my taxi hat those days.
- Thursdays are my work meeting days. We have a scheduled meeting in the morning, and I try to check up with things in production after that.
- Fridays are our chore days. The kids are getting to the age that they’re learning how to do chores, so we spend the morning getting all that done.
- On the weekends, we do a pizza and movie night as a family. We also make a once-a-week date night a priority, which usually works out best on Friday or Saturday nights.
I try hard to not over-book myself and to stay flexible. This helps me keep the focus on my kids. They’re little and I know they need their mom.
