Everything You Need to Mom On the Go this Summer

We’re never giving up on style, even as mom life kicks into high gear for the summer months. Summer may come with plenty of challenges—crazy heat, non-stop outdoor time and constant go-go-go—but that doesn’t mean we can’t look laid-back beach ready! Go ahead and get prepared ahead of time, so that you can enjoy a grab-and-go lifestyle that leaves plenty of room for playtime with your kiddos.

Create a layer of shade no matter what playground, pool or beach you end up on. Plus, mom hair never looked better tucked under this wide-brimmed beauty.

You’re going to need both hands ready at all times for chasing, swinging and slipping down slides with your tinies. Keep your essentials safe, secure, and easy to access with a backpack diaper bag. Nothing says summer fun like this watercolor gingham print.

Sunscreen on your face every single day, ladies! No excuses! The mineral-based formulas from this brand are forever my favorite for their luxuriously silky feel that is weightless while hard-working.

A tank top with some breezy pants or comfortable shorts is our go-to summer uniform. This top is both breastfeeding and bump ready thanks to its innovative design and free-flowing bodice.

Beachy waves? Yes, please. Burned out, dry locks? No, ma’am. This leave-in hair protectant is a must-have for any day in the sun—not just the pool or beach! We’re keeping a bottle in our bag at all times this summer.

We moms don’t have time to deal with uncomfortable sandals that bust, break, slip and side. Treat yourself to a summer shoe that can withstand all the excitement of the season while providing the comfort and support you deserve.Birkenstock 'Arizona' Soft Footbed Sandal

If you find yourself pumping this summer, you’ll want to be both mentally and physically prepared to bring the pump show on the road. This handy carrying kit has a place for every bottle, flange and tube, keeping you organized and in charge of your feeding journey.

It’s like a sippy cup for your own grape juice, need I say more? This one is the real deal with a patented top that only a pair of moms could invent!

I love this bag. It’s a stroller caddy that holds all you need (plus drinks!) while on walks about town, but a quick strap conversion takes it to a new level of baby bag style. Wear it as a cross body or over the shoulder diaper bag, and you’ll have everything you need without the hassel of two bags.
