It’s mid-summer, but the countdown to school is on! 23 more days for us until the first day of school to be exact. That means there are 23 more days of baseball games, errands to run, and playdates to attend all while getting ready for back-to-school. This is usually the busiest time of year! I don’t know about you, but the busyness of summer with the kids out of school means that I don’t get a lot of time to myself. Sweats are usually my summer outfit of choice, my makeup is rarely put on, my diet goes out the window and I fall off of my exercise routine. By this time every year I am counting down the days until school! With the school year on the horizon I’ve made the choice to do two much-needed things for myself every day these last 23 days of summer: get dressed and exercise more.When I am ready to tackle the day, I can be an example and help my kids tackle their day with confidence.
- Get Dressed!
Ok, ok I really mean that I am just going to make it a point to dress in something other than a t-shirt and shorts and at least look presentable. Especially being a stay-at-home mom I live in comfy clothes, but I need an outfit to be able to take me to the store, to a baseball game and to workout. Here are a few casual outfit ideas that are perfect for your daughter’s game, grocery shopping, or just lounging at home. You can be confident in these comfy outifts!
This Nike Air Max Sequent Running Shoe in Black Volt from Famous Footwear has become a staple in my outfits. This pair of shoes makes me feel ready to tackle what needs to be done for the day and are a sharp addition to any outfit. I have already gotten so many compliments, especially on the bright color combination. 94% of customers on FamousFootwear.com reccomend the Black Volts (and I do too)!

2. Exercise With five kids all home from school for the summer, it leaves little time for my work outs. I’m ready to get back into a routine and get back in shape!

The Air Max Sequents are a sturdy shoe which gives you great stability when doing workouts that include exercises like lunges and squats.
