This summer is all about comfy, casual style, long lazy days outdoors and soaking in all the good vibes this season of sunshine brings your way.
Summer Swimwear and Outfits for Women
As children, our memories of visiting the beach often include digging in the sand, collecting seashells, and running into the waves with reckless abandon. While we may not enjoy being buried in the hot sand quite as much as we used to, running into the waves can once again be enjoyable with Saint Somebody swimwear.
This summer, if you are on the search for the perfect swimsuit that gives comfortable support all day long, or a summer dress for any occasion, Saint Somebody has the solution for you. These swimsuits are designed for women by women. They are built with high quality material to hug and flatter your curves so that you can enjoy your day on the water and not worry about discomfort, chafing, or even how you look. These swimsuits flatter all body types, and are so comfortable, they can be worn all day long.
Born To Be Real is a sleek and stylish one piece swim suit that is sure to turn heads. This suit was designed in Australia, and flatters every body type! The support in this suit is impressive. After a full-day’s wear, there was no pinching, chafing, or worrying about slipping. This suit works for YOUR body type, whatever that may be!
If the day is winding down, or you just want to give your skin a break from the sun, Take Me Away is a comfortable and beautiful way to do it! This linen shirt dress is fashionable, but oh-so-soft to the touch. It’s just what your sun-kissed skin needs after a long day! This dress is slightly higher in the front, while staying longer in the back. It fits loosely while still showcasing your curves. Available in white or black, this dress is the perfect option for any summer time activity, from a sunny picnic on the beach with the family, to a romantic moonlit walk with your sweetie.
Whatever activity your summer entails, Saint Somebody can help you feel as beautiful as you are in high-quality fabrics and styles straight out of Australia.
Clothes that are light, flowy, and comfortable are just what summer ordered. Add in well-made and beautiful and that is the recipe for the best summer outfit. Bohemian Mama is just the place to find what you are longing for — founded with the idea of dressing every woman- moms, moms to be, and daughters. It is meant to be a
The Surrey Maxi Dress in Navy from Rubyyaya is just the right combo of boho and classic. The tassel detailing adorning the bottom of the dress adds an unexpected beautiful touch complementary to the silver and blue design. It is complete with button closures and a leg slit for ultra summer flow. The loose silhouette makes this dress perfect to carry Mama through all stages of Motherhood.
What is not to love about a great kimono? They are beautiful, flowy, and add so much to any outfit.

Pair it with a black dress for a party or throw it over your bathing suit and head to the beach- no matter how you wear it this kimono will be the talk of the town. There are so many options to celebrate your inner bohemian with Bohemian Mama.
It’s not always easy to find a cute on-trend, age-appropriate swimsuit that fits the demands of an active mom. Many of us don’t want to wear a bikini or struggle with traditional one-piece styles when it comes to using the bathroom in between water activities.
Byoot’s one-piece swimsuits fix all of the traditional one-piece problems, by providing a stylish one-piece that unbuttons on each side of the hip region to allow women to cleanly lift up the section of swimsuit needed for the lady’s room. Simply unbutton the sides and get straight down to business! Finally, a swimsuit that completely eliminates the need to take off the entire suit!
Summer Shoes for Women & Kids
Flip flops are a way of life during the summer, but most flat flip flops offer no support (as such, they’re horrible for your feet). Designed by a Physiotherapist from Melbourne, Australia, Archies Arch Support Flip Flops look just like “normal” flip flops, yet provide the same amount of support of a typical orthotic shoe, providing comfort beyond what is thought possible in a regular flip flop.
While these flip flops are obviously great for everyone, podiatrists have found that Archie’s flip flops are very useful for people suffering from foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis. The arch support helps provide support and shock absorption creating a more optimal environment for healing to occur when compared to walking bare-foot on hard surfaces or in typical flat flip-flops. As such, many people both with and without foot conditions, simply wear the flip-flops in and around the house (especially those with hard floor-board and tiles) when they are not wearing their shoes.
We’re total converts over here and think that once you try Archies Arch Support Flip Flops, you too will never want to take them off!

If your summer plans involve heading out to hit the trails a pair of Kuru Quest hiking boots are a must. From the Appalachian Mountains to the deserts of Arizona, this summer there are things to see, adventures to be had, and trails to explore. Head outdoors and commune with nature, either alone or with the kids, for a truly unforgettable experience.
Hiking is a great way to get in your steps this summer but a supportive, comfortable pair of hiking boots will make or break your experience. No one wants to deal with uncomfortable shoes, sore heels, or blisters out on the trail. We love the Kuru Quest hiking boots with their trendy everyday style, perfect for the hike, but also cute enough to wear while exploring the local town of your summer vacation destination. Featuring the the superior KURUSOLE which hugs your heels preventing heel pain and allowing you to go longer, a sturdy construction and excellent traction for those uphill hikes, and a high top style providing beneficial ankle support, these boots will be your go-to footwear this season.
Warm weather means it’s time to bring out the sandals. The older you get, the more you value a shoe that provides good support but finding a supportive sandal is difficult. This summer, toss out your rubber flip flops and upgrade to a summer shoe that is both fashionable and comfortable.
For trips to the park or enjoying a day out with the kids we love the Tally. Designed with soft leather and an adjustable buckle closure, your shoes will stay secure for everything from chasing down a toddler to riding a rollercoaster at the amusement park. The soles are constructed with Naturalizer’s N5 Comfort technology, ensuring that even after a full day your feet won’t be aching and sore. Our favorite element of the N5 design is the extra cushioning. Each N5 shoe is constructed with latex foam at the insole, ball of the foot and throughout the lining to absorb shocks and better support the body.
Available in 5 colors, you can pick up a pair to match every outfit in your closet. Shown here in Lodge Brown leather we think the soft chestnut color is ideal for matching your favorite pair of shorts.
Dressing up during the summer doesn’t mean you need to pull out a pair of uncomfortable high heels. The slip on Tea Sandal is the perfect classy yet fun look to complete your favorite sundress. Easy on and off makes the Tea Sandal like wearing your favorite pair of slippers. The Tea Sandal includes the same N5 Comfort technology, ensuring that you are both stylish and comfortable at the same time.
A wide band and oversized bow adds the perfect feminine touch to any look. We picked the black floral crepe to match all our favorite summer outfits and this shoe is also available in five other solid colors.
Have you ever noticed how kids love rainboots? Whether it’s raining or not they love wearing them. Perhaps because of the ease of getting them on and off, or the no limit play options (bring on the muddy puddles); but whatever the reason kids love them nonetheless. Western Chief needs to be on your radar for your rainboot loving kiddo. They offer a wide variety of kids boots and rain gear in a variety of fun prints so that no puddle gets left “unsplashed”.
Another thing that is all the rage amongst little ones: unicorns. Even better unicorn rainboots that light up. The Rainbow Unicorn Lighted PVC Rain Boots decorated with colorful rainbows found on the horse’s mane and tail while adorable butterflies flutter by amongst stars and actual rainboots; this is every little girl’s dream boot. Oh, and did we mention the outsole lights up? The boots are made of waterproof PVC and have two handles for easy on and off.
The fun doesn’t stop with boots; Western Chief has adorable raincoats to keep your child dry during those late afternoon summer storms. The Kids Solid Nylon Rain Coat is a classic coat that pairs well with any outfit or boot. It is lightweight, has two pockets, and is perfect for playing in the rain. Plus, it is easy to fold and travel with you so you don’t get caught in those unpredictable summer downpours.
Whether she’s heading to the beach, the pool or just playing at home, Hari Mari’s Scout flip flop for youth is a must-have for summer. Our kids have rejected all other pairs of flip flops we’ve tried in the past because they “don’t feel good;” but Hari Mari’s buttery smooth nubuck leather foot beds that are comfortable straight out of the gate and memory foam-lined straps make wearing sandals easy. It also doesn’t hurt that these look just like the ones Mom has, so they are instantly cool (at least for a few more years).
Summer Outfits for Pregnant Mamas
Summer is right around the corner and the hot weather makes us want to cool off at the beach or the pool with a cute new swimsuit. Expecting mama’s want a bathing suit that is comfortable and fits properly as well. The bathing suit trends these days have been focused more on one-piece bathing suits. Pregnant women who want to be more covered up but still be on trend will love the Smocked Waist Maternity One Piece Swimsuit. The multi-stripe design is gorgeous and eye-catching with its thick lines and fun color combination. This bathing suit has a comfortable, stretchy side paneling and a halter top strapping.
The Ruffled Cross Front Maternity Tankini is an adorable two-piece bathing suit that covers your bump with thin vertical lines and a flirty, ruffle design. The crossed straps in the back give the top a unique look while still providing support. This tankini is also available in black. Whether you are floating around in a pool or taking a stroll on the beach you will look glowing in the swimwear by Motherhood Maternity.

Black leggings are a staple of motherhood. They carry us from the gym to grocery store to school pick up which is why it essential we own leggings we love. The Secret Fit Belly Maternity Crop Leggings are perfect for all the mentioned activities and so much more. They have a keyhole design at the ankle for extra flair and rise above the belly for ultimate comfort.
Ultra comfy shirts are next on every Mama-to-be list. The Side-Ruched Scoop Neck Maternity Tank Top can be worn to your favorite workout class or paired with shorts for a simple yet cute outfit. The fabric is breathable and made with just the right amount of stretch so it won’t ride up while you are killing those (modified) burpees.
