I am always on a mission to find ways to be cute yet practical as a mom. If you’re a mom, you understand what I mean. It’s so tempting (and easy!) to wear sweats every day. But we don’t have to! Getting dressed up can boost your spirits, make you feel better about yourself, and brighten your day!
So I have come up with a few suggestions inspired by Crystal Light Liquid’s fun and vibrant website to add vibrancy to your ‘mom wardrobe!’
So here’s what I’m trying to do here. After I spent time browsing Crystal Light Liquid’s fun website (seriously people you can’t not be inspired! So much color & even some glitter!), I wanted to come up with some easy, practical ways to add vibrancy to your ‘mom’ uniform. Or if you’re not a mom, you’re day to day ‘uniform.’
Side note – my favorite features on the website were the “Explore new Flavors” where each flavor has its own mood board! I love the pink puppy, but the Peach Bellini mood board has to be my favorite. Then there’s the Crystal Light Liquid Mixology where they have some recipes you can create using some of the Crystal Light liquids. I want to make this one, looks so good! Perfect for parties, too!
Okay – onto adding vibrancy! Here’s my 3 tips:
I know this may seem like a lot, but think about it — they’re really just jeans! They’re all the same things your beloved jeans are: comfy, practical, easy, but the print adds so much! Immediately you’ve stepped up your game and added some funk to your life.
The picture on the left is your typical ‘mom uniform,’ jeans & a plain tee. Not too bad, but not very fun either, right? Throw on a pair of colored jeans and BAM you’ve got a cute, vibrant, fun outfit! Once again, still jeans, so still all the things we love about them. But with little to no effort, you’ve spiced up your wardrobe.
I have two pictures on how to wear jeans because some of you might be brave and want to be really vibrant, so you can add some color on top too. For the first look, inspired by the Strawberry Lemonade mood board at Crystal Light Liquid, I took my paisley top (which is actually a swim suit cover up… shhh don’t tell!) to brighten it up even more. But if you are hesitant about embracing this look, try it with neutrals like the purple with black. Still fun but maybe a little more within your comfort zone. This look was inspired by the Berry Blitz drink, doesn’t it look yummy? (the drink – not my outfit :))
Add Animal Print Accessories
It’s really so simple! On the left I’m wearing leggings — super comfy — Keds, and an over-sized tank. Kinda boring but comfortable. And we all might agree that comfortable almost always wins out. Well, I’m here to suggest that with a few accessories, you can have comfort & be stylish!
I added some leopard flats, belt and scarf. They are all minimal accessories so it doesn’t overpower the look, but still adds a vibrant touch! I kept the top knot because, let’s face it, sometimes the top knot just works. Or it’s all you can handle. Either way, you can make it chic with some other touches. This look was inspired but this scrumptious drink.
I hope you liked my looks! If you need some added inspiration, seriously go check out the Crystal Light website, there’s no lack of it there! And while you’re at it, I am sure you’ll get some amazing drink ideas for parties or to just keep your drinks interesting!
