MATERNITY MONDAY… stylish pregnancy goals

I am always so impressed with woman who pull of a stylish pregnancy.  And I’m not talking about those celebrities who pay stylists, such as myself, to keep them looking chic and effortless throughout their 9 months.  I’m talking about those women who inspire me with their stylish pregnancy – who give me the ideas for how to dress women in that perfect combination of fashionable, classy, comfort. Look, once you’re in the third trimester, loose the heals – it’s a noble effort, but I’ve been there – it’s miserable and nobody is going to judge you – in fact we would all feel more comfortable seeing you put those legs up for a bit.  So the key to a stylish pregnancy is less about the fashion torture we might ordinarily inflict upon ourselves and just about giving into your inner glow and celebrating the bump.  So check out my new favorite maternity options for a super stylish pregnancy.

MOMMA NEEDS… slide sandals

While summer is winding down slide sandals are still hot hot hot.  While, I’ve never been a big fan of the Birkenstock look, it is, undoubtably a thing.  Fortunately, these slide sandals aren’t strictly for the inner hippies – there are many reinventions of these comfy shoes to satisfy those of us who prefer a more modern, slick approach to footwear.  All of that said, the truth is, these shoes are fantastic – they are perfect for being on your feet all day and now that they’re officially stylish they tick that box too!  Check out my favorite slide sandals and get them while they’re hot and wear them till it’s cold!

MOMMA LOVES.. printed pants please


I do love a great pair of printed pants to pop my look whilst still feel effortlessly cool.

I am all about some printed pants to reinvigorate my look.  I think a lot of people can bit a bit nervous about patterns – particularly on the bottom but they are such a great alternative to basic bottoms and easily styled with a simple solid top, tee, tank or sweater.  These printed pants are a pop of the unexpected – they add a bit of whimsy to your look and are instantly a style stand out.  Yes, they’re a bit wild but why not have a bit of fun with your style? Check out my favorite printed pants and add something new to your wardrobe that will certainly add life to your look!

MOMMA NEEDS… more deconstructed denim

Having kids is messy, loving fashion makes dressing a challenge so deconstructed denim is always a good idea.  Oh wait, except if you work in any corporate setting, in which case – save these for the weekend.The perfect deconstructed denim looks effortless, haphazard, hides the wear and tear of having a toddler but still looks super cool with flats or heels.  These jeans are the great common denominator – they’re one part easy throw on and go and then one part ready for an ironically sexy night on the town.  Gotta love an item of clothing that is so strangely versatile and these jeans have it in spades.  So, check out my favorite deconstructed denim and get ready to enjoy a laid back look that you can wear with style and with fear of you know who getting who knows what on them!

MOMMA LOVES… extraordinary bags


This Alexander McQueen will always be one of my favorite extraordinary bags!

I did my fantasy footwear earlier but now it’s all about the extraordinary bags that truly take accessories out of their preverbal boxes.  These are the completely out there, statement pieces that transform your basics into wows style moments.  These extraordinary bags hold your favorite lipstick (one of them even comes with lipstick) and all the bits and pieces your need but they are also a great talking point and fashionista favorite.  For those Sex and the City fans, one of my favorite Carrie style moments was when Big gave her the the Judith Leiber swan clutch – while seemingly bizarre it was so crazy that it worked in all the right ways.  So check out my favorite extraordinary bags and think about what’s missing from your wardrobe – it’s not always obvious…

MOMMA LOVES… stars (prints not the celebs)

One of my favorite prints around are stars – there whimsical, simple and always cool.  Nothing like this great celestial pattern to appeal to us dreamers out there.  For kids, stars have long been a favorite print but, make no mistake – they are an equally amazing option for those of us that like to experiment with prints.  I think of it as classic enough to rival the stripe but for those of us who are a little more quirky.  Classic with a twist, these stars are a fantastic print to pop your favorite jeans, or pencil skirt and can hold their own for just about every occasion.  Check out my favorite star prints to transform your look with a little bit of the unexpected.
