Oversized ’70s sunglasses
Sunglasses are a mom’s best friend indeed. They are the perfect solution to hide a night of no sleep! They also protect our precious crow’s feet from more wrinkles. With the ’70s oversize trend hot this spring, you can add trendy glamour to your look by simply wearing some disco inspired shades. If you are really daring, try wearing some in a fun color like red or blue.

Jewelry, purses and shoes in rose gold are hot this spring and a great trend for moms to try. Rose gold is a color that looks good on most skin tones and the pinkish gold tone can be worn alone or mixed with other metals. It is also sweet and sexy at the same time. Try wearing one rose gold accessory at a time or else it might look like you tried too hard to wear this new trend.
