The Perfect Mom Dress! 8 Maxis To Work and Play All Day

The Perfect Mom Dress

Recently I seem to have a major obsession with any and all dresses that have a long hemline. There is no other wardrobe item as easy, effortless, and mom-friendly than the maxi dress. You throw it over your head, add an accessory or two, a pair of sandals, and you’re on your merry way!  My friend deems them the “one hit wonder.” While I may add the occasional jacket or cardigan, anytime I can wear one singular piece of clothing and still feel fabulous, practical, and comfortable, I am fully on board. Talk about the trifecta of fashion!

Now that I am a mama of a 21-month-old baby girl, I find myself deep in the trenches of toddlerhood mischief and downright danger at times. I wouldn’t be surprised if London decided to climb to the top of Mount Everest someday, because this little gal of mine is climbing her way to the top of EVERYTHING and quite frankly it’s giving me a heart attack. Luckily (and un-luckily) we live in California where we have bolted everything to the wall with safety straps, in the event of an earthquake; or in my case, in case a fearless almost 2-year-old decides to find her way up a book case or dresser.

Tonight at dinner, she ran away from me faster than I could keep up, climbed into a nearby booth seat, stood on top of a table, and let out a gigantic pterodactyl scream that seemed to echo in eternity, piercing the ears of all the innocent patrons. “Where is her mother?” I imagined them all thinking. Oh, she is just running as fast as her legs can carry her in a fabulous maxi dress to swoop this dare devil pterodactyl child off the table and back into the high chair that she will surely escape in mere seconds. Yes, this is my life, and I love it.

In addition to the climbing, we are running, dancing, jumping, leaping, shopping, bopping, cleaning (and did I mention climbing?) all the live long day. I need to be able to move and not worry about what I am wearing. I don’t have much time to put a whole look together.  The maxi, my friends, is the answer. Can I get an AMEN?

So whether it’s time to play at the park, get on the floor and read stories, run errands, make it to a meeting, or run after a toddler, I will show you how to go with the flow in these long, lovely dresses. Whatever the day brings your way, the maxi will help you maximize each moment of motherhood in comfort and style.
