If you're a busy mom who is always on the go, chasing after babies or toddlers and dropping kids off at school and special activities, then you understand the importance of wearing comfortable, functional clothing. Heck, most days you probably wish you could just stay in your sweatpants all day! Thankfully, Gaiam offers a line of some of the softest, most flattering eco-friendly women's clothing that is perfect for busy moms just like us!
Versatility with An Environmental Focus
Gaiam (pronounced "guy-um") is a company that goes beyond just creating and selling products. They have a strong focus on environmentalism and fair trade, producing products for "customers who value the environment, a sustainable economy, healthy lifestyles, alternative healthcare and personal development." Not only are their clothing items ridiculously comfortable and eco-friendly, they are also simple, timeless pieces that can easily be dressed up or dressed down. This versatility combined with casual, chic comfort is exactly what makes their clothing perfect wardrobe building pieces.
Creating Your "Go-To" Casual Chic Outfit
Life with kids can be exhausting and often the focus shifts from getting yourself put together and ready in the morning to making sure your kids are set for the day. Here's an easy outfit that can take you from lounging around the house to the yoga studio to running errands around town...
Not only are leggings totally in-style right now, but they are super comfortable and versatile in myriad situations. We love Gaiam's Ruched Leg Pant with modern ruched detailing, made with an eco-performance blend of fabrics.
- A Loose, Flowy Top
Pair your leggings with a long and loose, flowy top. Not only is this the epitome of comfort, but drapey fabric will help to hide any post-baby problem areas you may still be working on. Gaiam's Cascade-Hem Tee is a great, casual option that can be "dressed up" with the right accessories (we love that it covers the behind!).
- Fun Accessories
You can take classic staples like the ruched leggings and ethereal top and take them beyond loungewear with the right accessories. Add a pop of color, pattern or texture with a fun scarf. Or throw on a statement necklace. Even a special handbag (or diaper bag) can take your outfit from simple to spectacular. Don't be afraid to play with accessories and color!
