Street Style to Mom Style: Inspired by Olivia by superchicmom featuring tweed shorts

Shirt: J Crew factory // Shorts: Loft // Sunglasses: Westward Leaning // Sandals: J Crew (30% off with code hisummer) // Bag: Kate Spade Saturday // Lipstick: MAC lady Danger 

Summer is officially here and I am so happy to be wearing shorts! It was a slow start to summer in New England but we have some glorious weather here now! This look by Olivia Palermo totally embodies perfect summer every day wear while maintaining a certain level of chicness and is appropriate for moms and women on the go.

There are also some great summer sales going on now. Ann Taylor is 50% off everything with code BIG50.
ZARA is having their summer sale and I had to get this white blazer.
J. Crew has up to 50% off with code Hisummer and I had to get this surfboard sweater.
Loft is also 50% off with code fifty. So you can get these breezy linen shorts for a  bargain!

I hope you all have a great weekend and are fully enjoying summer with your friends and families!

Summer Evening Concert Look

Summer Evening Concert Look

Summer Evening Concert Look by superchicmom featuring J.Crew

A local town nearby has a series of outside summer concerts that start in the early evening and are just perfect to attend with the family. There is everything from rock cover bands to classical music. You can bring a cooler, beach chairs,  and the kids. This look is something I would love to wear to an event like this. It is light and cool without being too dressy (or too short). An ankle boot is fun and you can actually dance or chase the kids around. This Target pom tote is super fun and the price is fab. Old Navy has some really great dresses right now. I love this dressier one or this long embroidered one. This black tulip hem dress would also look nice with the TOPSHOP pom straw bag below. Best part - everything in this look is under $35!!

Do you love outdoor summer concerts? Bring the kids or get a sitter? What do you like to wear to this type of event?

Some of My Favorites Right Now: Surf Chic

Surfer Chic Favorites

Surfer Chic Favorites by superchicmom featuring a white hat

I love to surf and adore surfer style. There is something so laid back about that California cool. Combine that feeling with my favorite color blue and I am done! I have committed to a few of these items - like the J. Crew sweater which is on sale now and an additional 30% off, and the Old Navy Tunic. I fell in love with it after seeing it on Kendi Everyday here and on Could I have that here. Now I am just waiting for the shorts to go on sale, the earrings to get off back order, and a chance to travel here. Are you with me?

Black and White Swimwear

Back and White Swimwear

Back and White Swimwear by superchicmom featuring j crew shoes

I have always been a bikini girl, but there are certain situations where I have felt a one piece would not only be appropriate but chicer. For example- children's pool parties, water parks, and the local town pool. I am lucky that at my age I still feel confident enough to wear a bikini even rocking my little belly pouch that so proudly grew after having my son. Men have their battle scars and we have our own version! But I have finally committed to a one piece and bought this one from Loft.

The best part is there are so many amazing stylish one piece suits designed for all body styles to flatter that are more than your simple tank.

Do you like to wear a one piece or are a bikini only gal?

J Crew Lace Sleeve Tee and Sneaks

Tee: J. Crew - on super sale // Jeans: Current/Elliott // Sneakers: New Balance 420 // Sunglasses: Celine baby Audrey

I don't think there is any more comfortable and practical outfit for a woman on the go than a tee, jeans, and sneakers. The question is how to do this without looking frumpy. I used to be totally against jeans and sneakers but I have changed my tune. Luckily for us, sneakers are in and there are so many cool options out there ( see a bunch of my favorites below). 
Do you wear jeans and sneakers or should sneakers be reserved for workout gear?
Have a great weekend!

H&M Summer Boot

Shirt: J. Crew Factory (old - but love this one) // Jeans: Current/Elliott // Boots: h&m (on sale for 25$) // Wallet: DVF // Sunglasses: Celine (baby Audrey in black pre-owned from E-bay)

I know that sandal season is upon us, but I have always loved the boho chic look of a more summer type ankle boot that dips in the front. I think these boots work well with jeans and shorts as well. These have a nice low heel so you can keep up with your family or run around town.
I always spray my shoes with a protectant (like this kiwi nano spray) to keep out water and dirt. It really helps protect (especially cheaper) footwear that you would otherwise only get one season out of. So hopefully I can wear these straight through fall.
What do you think of boots for summer...super chic or not for me?
