Summer Fashion: It's Just "Better Together"

Disclosure: This post is part of a DailyBuzz Moms Tastemaker program with P&G. All opinions and experiences are my own. 


Do we ever escape those constantly growing mountains of dirty laundry piled high in the laundry room? Well, considering I will be adding baby #3 to the mix later this week (EEEEKKK!!!) I don't see an end to my laundry duty anytime soon. As it is, living on a farm I have a massive amount of laundry to do daily.

Now, P&G laundry products are nothing new in our home, but we haven't used them for a while because we switched to all fragrance free formulas. Both my husband and son have very sensitive skin. I had no idea that Downy came in a "free" version until recently and thrilled to find Tide, Downy and Bounce 'Free' formulas - no dyes, no perfume - available at Target. Yay!

Just as every member of my family has their own Summer clothing preference, like my husband's non-cotton shirts and Carhart work jeans, or my daughter's light-up shoes, twirly skirt and bright tank top, the combination of Tide + Downy + bounce is just, "Better Together"!

Yes, after my family members find the perfect balance of cool, comfortable and their own personal style, it is my job to keep those clothes clean and looking their best. With a son who prefers digging in the dirt to being clean, and many hours of spit-up and baby messes in my own future this can be a real challenge.

To start with, I love that Tide is such a great stain fighter.

Downy helps to keep our clothing soft and I have been using bounce since I was a child to cut-down on static cling in the dryer. I will agree that these products are just better together!

This Summer I am all about vibrant colors paired with a long maxi shirt. I like to have a few jacket or light sweater options for cool evenings out. I also have those adorable little pearl peas-in-a-pod necklaces on my wish-list to celebrate each of my children. Add to the ensemble a big floppy hat, sunglasses and cute embellished sandals and I think I would be ready for just about any event or playdate.

This coral nursing top caught my eye, but with a new baby I will be sporting a fair amount of spit-up and constantly doing laundry. Usually that wreaks havoc on bright vivid colors, right?

My "Better Together" Summer Style

Happily, I have been washing away the messes without washing out the colors of my favorite clothes. Add to that how affordable the prices are at Target and this Mom is a happy camper.

So, what is your go-to outfit this Summer season? And how do you keep them looking their best?
