Having suffered through primary infertility for several years, I am extremely appreciative of the gift of motherhood. There were many days in my life in which I was unsure I'd ever be a mom. And I still catch myself staring at my son in awe. Some days, I look at him and I can't believe he's mine. Even after 18 months, I have to pinch myself. I just feel. so. lucky. And I want to shout my joy from the rooftops.
PeaceLoveMom is a lifestyle brand that understands being a mom is the most meaningful, challenging, life-changing experience you can hope to have. Created by a team of fellow moms, PeaceLoveMom offers clothing and accessories that encourage women to celebrate motherhood. Their mission is to empower and inspire moms of all kinds, whether you are a stay-at-home mom or working mom, new mom or been-there-done-that mom, crunchy mom or jello mom, single mom or married mom. We are all united through the common thread of parenting and PeaceLoveMom honors this bond we share. Bonus: all PeaceLoveMom tees are made right here in the U.S.A.!
I love the sense of community behind the brand so I was thrilled to receive the opportunity to review the Timeless Mom Aqua Burn Out V-Neck Tee.
I am head over heels in L-O-V-E with this tee! The aqua color is simply gorgeous. It is buttery soft and the weathering of the fabric gives it a unique, vintage feel. The sheer, burnout style is a little sexy but not over the top. I found the fit to be true-to-size. Not too tight, not too loose. It was just right. The extra length kept my midriff covered and was very flattering to my figure. It's the perfect tee to pair with jeans and flip-flops, sandals or sneakers. I can't wait to wear it this spring/summer so I can be the envy of my playgroup! However, I was able to sport a long-sleeved thermal underneath of my tee so I could wear it now in the cooler months.
I also loved the little touches, like the tag, which declared "Motherhood does not define us. We define it." Word! What mom could resist this awesomeness?
I already have my eye on some of their other fabulous designs. I'm loving the Truly Mom, Mother Earth and the Lucky Mom tees. I'll be putting the bug in my hubby's ear to get me PeaceLoveMom on Mother's Day. I can't think of a better gift for such a special day!
Bottom line: I would highly recommend adding PeaceLoveMom to any proud mama's wardrobe. From edgy to sweet, every mom can express herself in style.
