We're continuing Mother's Day Week with a shoutout to all the cool moms doing cool things with cool kids out there. We've got a major #MomCrush on these ladies not only for their impeccable style but how they prove we're all doing the very best we can, with what we have, raising amazing littles!
So while our list could be a million miles long, here are just a few of the moms that have and do inspire me in different ways, on different days. Check them out, I know you'll be inspired too!
Milk N' Honee: This mom just exudes that cool, laid back, got it all under control vibe that we all strive for. Her littles are beyond adorable and she's running her own faith-based, pint-sized clothing line all while balancing motherhood and blogging.
Monica Royer: Not only has Monica built the incredible kids line Monica & Andy, but she's also created an incredible community of moms here in Chicago (and other cities) that offers the kind of support and resources we all really want. She's my inspiration for growing an incredible brand and I'm so lucky to know her and even luckier that I get to learn from her.
Chicago Mom Goes Suburban: Maybe it's because she's got three boys (and I'm well on my way there!), maybe because she has great style - I just love to follow Michelle for positive vibes and a much-needed dose of wit. She's an incredible photographer with a love for Chicago that I can totally get behind.
Chicago Life Blog: Basically, when I'm in need of some serious interiors inspiration, this is where I head. Amelia is an incredible designer and mom of two boys (like soon to be me!) and an incredible source for gorgeous, Pinterest-worthy home and style ideas.
Sequins & Stripes: I had the pleasure of sitting on a panel (actually about Motherhood for Monica and Andy!) with and meeting Liz Adams of S&S and instantly fell in love with her "realness" about Motherhood. Maybe it's because we're both Ohio State grads or maybe because we share the same last name, but Liz is one of those girls girls that you just have to love. Head to her feed for a fun look into her life - she's got two boys, an incredible blog and finds ways to make you feel like her bestie without even knowing her.
Vania Rios: Oh just the cutest mom with the cutest style who JUST had the cutest little girl! I just love the boho, free-spirited vibes I get from this cool mom and her sweet little family. And her feed is just the prettiest to follow!
But First Koffee: I met Kate at a Chicago Women's magazine event and instantly connected! She's my go to for creating healthy, easy, quick meals at home (her meal plans are SO good for busy mamas) and she's got such a cool girl style you just have to love. P.S. - her daughter is the absolute cutest!
Second City Mom: I love the honesty and relatability (is that even a word) of Leyla's posts. She's shared her struggle with infertility and I'm so happy to see her expecting (very soon!) her second little. Motherhood and all the expectations that come with it can be tough - I love to see a blogger sharing a glimpse of the tougher experiences with us all.
Lifestyle Wifestyle: You know those followers that you've never even met, but you just feel like you'd be friends? Alicia of Lifestyle Wifestyle is that to me. Again, maybe it's because she has two boys - do you see a theme here - but she's got this cool California style and outlook that I adore. I love following her fun travel and family pics - and her style is just so, so good!
While there are just SO many more we can mention, tell us what cool moms do you look to for daily inspiration, a laugh or some camaraderie?
