Five style staples for the stay-at-home mom: Summer Edition

Today, my friend Nikki, of Nikki Miner Makeup, is sharing her fashion expertise. Many of her staple items hail from super fancy stores such as Tar-jay and Le Kohl's. Let me vacuum up these Cheerios and Goldfish and roll out the red carpet for her!

If you want to hear from a mom who is perfectly put together, wears heels to the park, and styles her hair daily, you should stop reading now.

When I worked full time, I loved putting together fun color combinations and keeping up with the latest trends. I prided myself in looking good and taking fashion risks. My closet was full...REALLY full!

Since becoming a stay at home mom, many days I’m just trying to sneak in a shower. I find it really hard to look cute but still wear outfits that are practical for playing at the park, running errands, and rolling around on the floor, sword fighting with my son.

Check out the gallery to see what five “staples” have helped me feel good about the way I look, even if my two-year-old is the only one who sees me. ;)

I've included links to most of these items below. Other simple switches: Try sandals instead of flip flops, a bright lipstick, or a cute headband with a bun or ponytail.
