It’s summer! All my kids are home all day long. Also, I’m pulling my hair up into a top knot and reaching for the comfiest clothes in my closet on a more regular basis. During summer, I want a look that says “look at me! I can take 3 kids to the grocery store AND pick slime out of my carpet in this outfit!” Ya feel me?
On my blog I have created a category dedicated to “The Momiform” which are all kid friendly outfits approved by me, and it’s your one stop shop when you want to look put together but also have your look be easy and comfortable to wear with kids. I also have a Casual category that has outfits that are great with kids or when you just don’t feel like wearing heels.
Today I have rounded up my 5 favorite mom friendly summer outfits that I will be wearing on repeat all summer long…
A T-SHIRT DRESS & SNEAKERS
Throwing on a favorite pair of comfortable white sneakers with a casual t-shirt dress is so versatile. You can comfortably wear it just about anywhere you go with kids, and a dress keeps you cool on hotter days. I also love adding a baseball hat for days when you have to get out the door quickly. Or even, when you plan on being in the sun a lot (like days spent at the park or at an all day event).
A BRIGHT TOP & WHITE JEANS
White jeans are a summer staple. I know white jeans for moms may seem like a big N-O. However, they are great for busy moms who need to go from one event to the next easily. This look is also simple and comfortable enough for a mom who spends a lot of time driving her kids to summer camp, swimming lessons, or playdates and wants to look put together (and doesn’t have to worry about getting messy!). White jeans can be dressed up or down. Also, they don’t take a lot of work to style. Add a plain bright colored top or a bold graphic tee to a pair of white distressed jeans for a casual mom style that can easily take you from a playdate to a date night out. I’d just swap these out for normal jeans if there are finger paints or popsicles involved!
A JUMPSUIT & SANDALS
A jumpsuit is an easy and comfortable alternative to a dress during the summer. It’s ideal for moms because you can still easily get down on the ground and play with younger kids while wearing a jumpsuit. Also, there are so many different styles that will accommodate just about any event. I love adding a plain white tee under a jumpsuit without sleeves. In addition, throwing on a pair of comfortable sandals for a simple look that I feel good in.
A CASUAL SHIFT DRESS & WEDGES
The best summer outfits are simple and easy to wear all day. This shift dress was a go-to for me all the time last summer. It’s an ideal choice for moms that don’t want to spend time thinking about what to wear. Just throw it on and go. These wedges are a comfortable shoe choice if you need a more dressed up look. However, this dress would also look cute worn more casually with a pair of white sneakers for moms on the go.
A FLOWY TOP & WIDE LEG PANTS

Wide leg pants are everywhere right now. They are the perfect pants for moms. Also, they are loose, breathable, and comfortable. And there are so many different colors, patterns, and lengths to choose from that you can’t go wrong. Adding a white flutter sleeve top that isn’t restricting and allows you to move around and feel good is just as important. There’s nothing worse than feeling like your clothing is restricting the activities you’re trying to do. Especially with your kids when you have to be ready for anything!
