Summer Mom Style: Moving Out of Your Quarantine Wardrobe (at least a little bit)
While many of us have been home with the kids and being everything for everyone, some of you may have noticed that your style game has taken a hit. I personally have gone from former fashion director to ‘hey this t-shirt has only three stains!’ When I went out for a quick work task last week, being somewhat dressed up felt utterly foreign. I looked appropriate, yet, all I wanted was to get back into my ‘new’ work uniform of leggings. If you’re like me and looking to move out of those workout shorts (no judgment if you plan to stay in these shorts for the rest of your life, do you!) and ease back into fashion, here are a few pieces to get you out of the quarantine look and back in style.

Apex One Piece by JADE Swim
Yes, the pools are closed but the city beaches are now open. This one-piece is sleek and although based on a classic silhouette it has style touches that are sexy AF such as double back straps and a seamless stitch. Flattering for many if not all body types, the best part is it is available in eleven hues. $198, jadeswim
Tikuri Sundress by Lem Lem
My advice if your easing back into pieces that are from the lounge department is to stay in the comfort zone and elevate what you have been wearing. Day dresses, the ones are grandmothers wore are making a come back. And while I fully embrace this look, it is not for everyone. So choose a dress that can work in many facets of your life but is flattering. One that brings in the waist and is long to create length is always a win-win. $365, lemlem.com
