Like most moms, I’m constantly running from one thing to the next. Every time you think you’ve got a schedule nailed that works for your family – something changes. The youngest drops her morning nap, the eldest starts tee-ball. You get the picture. Our current schedule (and this weather!) has us enjoying daily afternoon park dates and it’s safe to say the whole family loves it. Especially the pup!
Most of you are probably embracing warmer temps with the occasional chilly day, like we are. It’s like whiplash for our wardrobe – one day we’re running around the jungle gym in shorts and t-shirts, the next we’re reaching for jackets and pants.
I work out of a home office, with the exception of a couple meetings in the city a week. So while I have dreams of showing up at the park looking picture-perfect, that’s not always the case. Slowly, but surely, I’ve learned to pair together some comfy outfits that still pack a fair amount of style.
Here are some of my favorite looks for playtime at the park:
I’m a big fan of green cargo jackets and vests. I love them for their versatility and casual style. I have one of each so I’m prepared for any temperature the weather throws our way.
If you’re a fan, I’d start at the Banana Republic Factory Store at your local Tanger Outlets to pull together both of these styles. And bonus points if you’re able to twin with your mini! I plan on doing as much of this as possible until she gets older and “too cool” for her ‘ole momma.

And while I’m crushing on the color green, let me also share with you one of my favorite celebrity moms when it comes to style. Here’s to hoping we have a park run-in one day. When I attempt the casually-chic look, this is the image that comes to mind.
And since the littles are the ones doing the real playing, it’s only fair that I give their wardrobe some attention. Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store recently announced their spring 2016 line and it includes lots of cuteness when it comes to activewear. Check it out for yourself and visit your local Tanger Outlet to shop the looks.
That’s all for now, mommas!
