When it comes to what I wear, function and comfort are at the top of my list.  Let's be real, I am usually chasing two kids around the backyard, up and down the stairs, and around in circles. However, I still need my "mom uniform" to be cute and to make me feel pretty! I can't throw ALL of my style out the window just because I am a busy, active mama (and still trying to lose those last few stubborn pounds of baby weight, to boot!)

I'm sure a lot of you reading this are in the same boat, hence I decided to start sharing some of my favorite fashion finds here and there. While I have dozens of fashion blogs that I follow,  I am not spending $300 on amazing chiffon blouses from Nordstrom and Bloomingdales every week, but hey - how many of us can actually do that in that real world? I am actually more inspired by moms finding ways to make their everyday wardrobes a balance between affordable, functional, and cute. However, I am having trouble finding this out in the blog/instagram world, so thought I'd just start sharing my favorite finds every once in awhile.

That being said, let's get started! This summer I have pretty much lived in this style of easy, pull-on short shorts! They are SO COMFORTABLE and so easy to wear with a basic v-neck t-shirt.  Elastic waistband? Sounds ridiculous when you say it out loud, but YES PLEASE! And seriously, aren't they cute?

Here are some of my favorites:
