When you become a mom, there’s a period of time during which you really could care less about fashion. In fact, you put on the shirt that’s easiest to take off when your infant spits up on you. But as your kids get older, you realize that the real you is still inside there somewhere, and she starts itching to reveal herself.
It doesn’t take a lot to get back into the swing of being you. One of the first things you can do is to just not go out in the same clothes you slept in. Wearing pajama pants is not a fashion statement unless you’re still in the under-4 crowd.
In fact, one of the easiest ways to be trendy as a mom is to adopt the newest craze: mommy-and-me looks. In February 2016, Bestproducts.com rounded up the top companies that sell matching outfits for kids and parents.
Guess who was on the list? You got it—Cabana Life was right up there next to Target and Gymboree. Why? Because we offer coordinating prints for moms and their little ones that aren’t totally matchy-matchy. You can harmonize without being identical.
There are actually quite a few benefits of embracing this new style sense.
1). Kill two birds with one stone—when you pick out your kids’ outfit for the day, you’ll automatically know what you’re wearing.
2). Even better, you can give your kiddo the task of choosing both of your outfits (while you catch an extra 15 minutes of sleep in the morning).
3). You and your little one will be able to show off your personality while retaining your individuality.
4). You’ll stress less—studies show that moms who are more affectionate with their kids have lower levels of stress hormones. One easy way to connect is to wear coordinating clothing.
5). Get happy—research shows that what you wear can affect your mood. When you and the kids are decked out in sophisticated prints reminiscent of the calming ripples of the Caribbean Sea, you’ll all feel a little more blissful. The Azalea Shores print brings you to an island paradise lush with lagoons and passion fruit. Palm Breeze evokes the hush of the wind through the palms.
The designs are consistent across all categories, which means that your kids can match each other as well. The boys’ Oceana rashguard set is sporty enough for your little ball of energy, and the girls’ counterpart features the same design with a feminine twist. Make a splash at the next pool party wearing the Coastal Crush swing shift dress while your little love wears the Coastal Crush swimsuit and cover up set.
What’s even better is that all of Cabana Life’s styles are meant to move with you. That makes them comfortable for a mom who’s always on the move and easy for kids to throw on before a playdate at the park. The 50+ UV protection incorporated in the fabric enhances that stress-free vibe you’re aiming for, because you know you that and the kids are protected from the sun’s harmful rays.
