In this season of our life, we are constantly in transition. One week it’s potty training, the next week we’re planning “scientist of the day” projects and then on top of it all, organizing summer sports to keep the energy levels of three children at bay. I feel like in these transition seasons it’s so easy to forget about our personal style and what really makes us unique. The transition into Motherhood, I feel, can often leave us desperately trying to find our footing in many areas of life, including our own personal style. Let’s be honest, there are days we need to succumb to the milk stained t-shirts and over-sized sweats. But there are also days we just want to feel human again and long for the countless hours of freedom we once had to shave both legs and actually plan what to wear.
Along the rather bumpy road of Motherhood, I have come up with little tricks to help me hold onto myself, my love for fashion and ways to find just the right amount of detail to add to my Mom-style.
The hats I wear constantly change, from Mother, to Personal Trainer, to wife, friend, coach….Janitor…I know I’m not alone in this, and many other women can relate to the ever changing roles we play in our day.
Little things like adding a few sunglass styles to your spring/summer wardrobe help to not only protect your eyes, but can also add the perfect detail to update your Spring/Summer look.
For me, throwing on the perfect pair of sunglasses helps me feel confident, whether I’m sporting tired Mom eyes from a long night with the kids or needing a last minute detail before heading out for date night or a drink with friends.
IRIS offers a large variety of brands and styles and I love experimenting with new looks. I’m a classic old school aviator lover, but recently have started adding some new styles to my Spring / Summer looks. The new Coach HC7078 and Maui Jim Wiki Wiki are currently two of my favorite styles and the perfect transition accessory as I move through my day
