For #MomStyle / Lake Life

 

     Good morning! Today's post is all about #momstyle. I love being a mom, and contrary to what you might have heard, it doesn't completely alter every little thing about the person you were before you had a baby. One of the things that hasn't changed for me is my love of style. Before, I thought it was a love of clothes, but I've since discovered that it's less about the things, and more about the way I see and use those things. 

     One of the most important "things" in my wardrobe is a classic white t-shirt. They are a staple in most peoples wardrobes, but as a mom, there's nothing more essential than something that can be worn an infinite amount of ways (because time, laundry, and the never ending mess that is motherhood). You can style them any way you like, and are basically the blank canvas of the clothing world. 

     This month, I'll be sharing two ways to wear your white t! Today's is a casual, relaxed pairing in the form of culottes, slides, a cap, and straw tote. I was on vacation at the lake house shooting this, and the vibes there add to the simplicity and comfort level of this outfit. 

     We are fairly isolated at the lake, and it always makes for a beautiful backdrop. We are constantly doing something, and I brought along a diverse wardrobe to complement that. Culottes are a great casual pant that are still unique but basic enough to pair with a lot of things. The pants combined with the t-shirt made me feel like I was almost wearing PJ's!

     The most fun element of this look is the hat I scored at Pacsun. I don't usually shop there, but they have good sales at the lake, and you can always find something on trend. The cap is my favorite color (blush, duh), embroidered with a rose, and with the french words for "I love you". It just screams "Sam!". 

       Not to mention, it's cool cotton, so it's perfect for summer and keeping those rays away from my face!

      I had a ton of fun shooting this with Kristen, and can't wait to share the next way to style a white t! Hint: it involves denim, as most white t-shirt outfits do (and should, in my opinion). 

     Thanks for reading, and have a fun Monday!
