How To Get Ready Faster This Mother’s Day

With Mother’s Day coming up next weekend, I’m sure many of you out there are already prepping for your celebrations like I am. Whether you’re hosting a brunch at home or going out to a nice restaurant with your family, there’s a lot to consider – from your decorations, to your gifts, and your look!

To me, Mother’s Day outfits are always the epitome of Spring style, and are similar to what you might wear to an Easter celebration – colorful, playful, and classy. This year, I’m going with this cute structured linen dress in warm peach, paired with simple white sneakers to keep things comfy and casual. I just received this dress in the mail, so it had some deep creases from being inside the packaging. While I would normally opt for my trusty old iron (which I’ve had for almost 10 years at this point, is that crazy?), I wanted to try out my new Conair handheld steamer to save some time.

So many of my friends who work in the fashion industry swear by steamers over irons, and now I can see why. This handheld one doesn’t require you to lug out your ironing board or put it back, and released a stream of powerful steam that gets your clothes looking crisp and neat in a matter of seconds. It seriously saved me a good 10 minutes or more in comparison to ironing, and I feel like it’s so much easier on your clothes and on delicate fabrics. If you’re in a pinch getting ready in the morning, I highly recommend trying this one. Have you guys ever used one of these before? Shop my look below!

  • Mackenzie and I used to spend so long dilly-dallying over what to watch, it would be time for bed before we even started a movie.

  • #ad We must focus on finding the positives where we can at the moment and for me, part of that’s wearing bright colours around the house. Wearing colour has been proven to help lift your mood so I’m stocking up on comfy home clothes in bold colours and pretty printed wrap dresses. This sunny yellow and leopard combo is from @walmart shot a couple of weeks ago in Notting Hill.

Being at home so much has got me thinking about ways in which I can be more sustainable with my fashion choices. Choosing ethical brands and renting pieces is a good way to start. In such a strange time, I’m focusing on the positives where I can. Let’s hope it won’t be long before we can all be out in the sun again ☀️
