Summer Essentials for On-the-Go Moms

Shannon McAvoy of The Simple Moms knows a thing or two about the crazy life of a mom on-the-go. In summer, moms need a wardrobe that will take them from errands to the pool to the park and back. Check out Shannon’s blog with her summer must-haves below!

I don’t know about you, but I am on-the-go all the time keeping up with my girls’ schedule this summer. If we aren’t going to a camp, we are headed to the beach or a pool. We definitely get the most out of the extra sunlight hours during the summer. I pretty much love it all! With all that in mind, there of been a handful of items I have consistently been grabbing. I thought it would be fun to share some and get input from you all as well!

Floppy summer hat.
I have fallen in love with all the posts I’ve seen on social media with the big, floppy hats of summer. Aventura has an awesome one, available in two separate colors, the Uma hat! I chose the tan color thinking it would go with a lot more. The black-and-white one has my heart though. I just love all things black-and-white! Aventura does have some other fashionable hats. The Jaron (on sale!) is calling my name as well!

A good pair of ‘stretchy pants.’
If you are following us on social media, you will have seen me sporting the Vibe Leggings. From running for mileage to running errands, they are the cat’s meow! They are offered in multiple colors, and there are other pairs of go-to pants in their athleisure collection as well!

A summer dress.
I love summer dresses! Here in Michigan, it’s been VERY humid. I’m finding myself running from the pool, home to get ready and out the door again. I grab a light summer dress to head to the pool and then once I’m ready, another dress. Aventura has some awesome dress options. I have the Yardley (more detailed post coming!), the Topanga (full post HERE!) and some other dresses from past collections from Aventura. This brand is a go-to for my everyday! Also, I have to share, the Gia dress is a HIT for many and it’s on a SERIOUS SALE right now too!

A good hoodie.
Reference back to my previous selection and the comments where I live in Michigan. You just never know what the weather is going to do! I always have a hoodie in my car. And, having kids, you just KNOW that errands run longer and unexpected plans pop up. Being prepared for all temperatures is key. I have shared the Hartwell hoodie with you previously (see HERE…also, on SALE!), and still use it often! Aventura has released a lot of newer styles since I shared the Hartwell. You should definitely click over. I can almost guarantee you will find one you really like!
