Mom Style From Play Dates to Date Night

I want clothes that are appropriate for anything I am doing in a day. That's why I love PinkBlush a one-stop-shop with great pieces for a busy mom.

Before having Aiden I spent a lot of money on clothes. I had outfits for work, outfits for going out, and casual outfits. Now, I spend all my money on clothes for Aiden 😆 (but really, I’m obsessed!) These days, when it comes to style, I want something I can transition to be appropriate for whatever I am doing that day whether it’s play dates with my mom friends, date night with my husband, or a work event. That’s why I am excited to partner with the trendy online boutique PinkBlush which is a one-stop-shop to finding great pieces for the busy mom that are easily styled for any occasion. Here are some tips for styling a PinkBlush maxi dress from day to date night!

Disclosure: I received a maxi dress from PinkBlush in exchange for my honest review.

During the day I am running around with a toddler. I am walking, carrying, bending, and squatting so I need something that I can easily move around in. Jewelry is out because it is basically a target for being pulled or ripped off (unless I am wearing my teething bangles). I might be at a local play space or museum with other moms so I usually like to have something warm that I can take on and off. I find that layers are important for moms!


Here is my play date look:

It was SO easy to take this look from day to night. I wanted to look a little more sophisticated and less mom-ish. Date nights for us usually include dinner and a movie, or sometimes a local brewery. I still like to be comfortable so that’s a priority but I can add some cute shoes and jewelry to complete my date night look.

I wasn’t much of a maxi dress wearer before Aiden arrived, but since becoming a mom I love how easy they are to dress up and down. You will definitely find me living in this dress this spring and summer!

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic preschooler and newborn, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my first little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Realizing that we would probably have more kids in the future, I wanted to document everything, so we would remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
