So if you were on facebook at all this weekend, you too must have been bombarded with pics and videos of everyone with kids at sleep away camp attending visiting day. Families with happy smiling faces and arms around each other. Brothers and sisters who usually fight like crazy, now embracing and getting all teary eyed. It is all very sweet to see. However, we know that visiting day is very stressful for the moms in all these pics. And the reason is, it’s really hard finding the perfect outfit! Now our kids go to day camp so we are not faced with this visiting day dilemma. But we are finding ourselves helping our friends and clients find the perfect visiting day ensembles. Now before social media, even we self-admitted fashion obsessed girls would’ve thought this was a little cray cray. But nowadays when you know your pic will be on display for all the world to see, it makes perfect sense! So here are some tips and looks so you too can look visiting day gorgeous!
Invest in the perfect pair of beaten up denim shorts. A pair that looks like you aren’t trying too hard. You know ones that appear as if you simply cut an old pair of jeans, but probably cost you close to $200. (And make your butt look fab!)
Wear a tank or tee! Sounds so simple but quite the contrary! You need to find a tank or tee with a little something interesting on it. Something that will make you look like a cool mom who has really cute clothes. Try buying one with a cutout, a strategic hole or maybe a little fringe.
Sunglasses! So you know your mascara will be running from all your joyous tears after seeing the kids you haven’t seen in awhile. So invest in a hot pair of big sunglasses. Something glamorous and on trend for all of your instagram followers to see!
Learn how to master the “I just rolled out of bed and brushed my hair quickly look”! Of course it will probably take an hour and a half but no one needs to know. Think Jennifer Aniston in all her Aveena ads.
Invest in a cute pair of sneakers. And go run run run and be the first mom to hug her kiddo! Happy visiting day!
