MOMMA LOVES… neon clothes for us and our little ones!


Max and I having some fun with bubbles…


I’m wearing a highlighter pink Splendid tank and Max is wearing neon yellow Nununu pants – bring on spring time!

I love neon clothes.  This may sound crazy from someone who’s daily uniform usually consists of black, white and grey – but I am a HUGE fan of a pop of unexpected brights.  Not just some smattering of a bland color – but a committed, eye catching highlighter hue.  Neon clothes just capture my attention and they’re so bright they actually shine a bit of light into our lives and can put a smile on my face.  Whenever I’m wearing a fluorescent piece I always get compliments – its something different, unexpected and fun.  It could just be something as subtle as a hot pink tee paired with a blazer and jeans or something a bit more adventurous (but not too serious) like a chartreuse fit and flare dress… Neon clothes give your skin a warm glow and adds a bit more color into the world – added bonus you and your little ones have it that much easier keeping an eye on each other at the playgrounds!  Check out some of my top neon clothes picks to get you out of your drab winter wardrobe rut!

MOMMA KNOWS… nude heels make legs look longer

photo (1)

My nude Sergio Rossi peep toe pumps go with everything in my closet and never fail to make me look taller (even taller than the 5 inches the heels adds!)

I’m about to let you in on one of my favorite stylist secrets – nude heels are the ultimate shoe.  Beyond the obvious fact that they’re a neutral so they go with everything – they are also the best way to make legs look longer.  Think about it – the perfect nude heels give the illusion that legs keep going and going…  There’s no cut off, no color block at the end – just legs for miles.  As a stylist I have worked with countless models who, let’s face it, don’t need much help in the long legs department, but when working with celebrities who are often petit this little trick always works a charm.  The versatility of nude heels is amazing – from a casual jeans and a t-shirt look, to a conservative professional look to a sexy night on the town – these shoes go the distance and always make you look taller and perfectly polished.   The heel height is almost irrelevant – choose a pair of nude heels you feel comfortable in and find a tone that most closely matches your skin and voila!  Whether you prefer stripy, platform, sling backs, sandals or pumps there are some amazing nude heels that will be sure to give you the legs you’ve always wanted! Think about it, there’s a reason that fashion icons such as Kate Middleton and Anna Wintour have their favorite pairs of nude heels which they wear constantly (LK Bennett and Manolo Blahnik respectively) – because they always work and look chic! Check out some of my favorite nude heels and get ready to show of some great looking gams just in time for spring!

MOMMA LOVES… art inspired fashion


Max working on some finger painting on his Melissa and Doug Easel. Not messy at all…


Me in an art inspired Zara top and Max wearing a lot of paint….

One of my favorite trends is always art inspired fashion.  It simultaneously looks incredible but has a nostalgic quality about it that reminds me of the freedom of being a child. I love that Max is now at an age when we can paint, draw, play with play dough and just do the creative things together that I really enjoyed during my childhood.  Its almost as though we get to a certain point in life and forget how to get our hands dirty and be artsy and i’m in a creative profession!  Hence, art inspired fashion – which can be anything from a pop print to a specific artistic reference really catches my eye.  While some may worry that art inspired fashion is too bold, loud or out of their wheel house it isn’t.  Take a watercolor floral print blouse and pair it with your favorite jeans, summer is coming and who doesn’t want a pop print sun dress?  Its just a fun, colorful, vibrant way to dress and it might just inspire you to get some arts and crafts together for you and your little one to enjoy!  Check out some of my favorite art inspired fashion to get you excited for spring and bring out the creative fashionista in all of us!

SHOP THE LOOK SUNDAY… how to wear spring trends

Spring time is approaching – and, although it may not feel like it in most of the country, its happening so time to update your wardrobe accordingly! For shop the look sunday I’m going to show you how to wear spring trends from desk to date and from the park to brunch.    This week I covered the sporty trend, the perforated trend and the always popular wedge sandals.  While all three of these are very relaxed look, I’m going to show you how to take on piece and have it work for all your lifestyle needs.  Check  out some of my stylist tips for how to wear spring trends with effortless style!

How to wear the spring trends -  perforated from desk to date

How to wear perforated from desk to date – pair a laser cut top (with underlay) with a great midi skirt to balance the sporty look and add a feminine flair – accessories with simple lady like accessories to give you an overall elegant polish!
How to wear the perforated trend from the park to brunch

How to wear the perforated trend from the park to brunch – pair the same top with a pair of colorful skinny jeans and some great modern jewelry and espadrilles for a clean, comfortable, elegant look!

How to wear wedges from desk to date

How to wear wedges from desk to date – put with a great colorful fit and flare dress, a fitted jacket and some great jewels for a conservative yet flirty look!

How to wear wedges from the park to brunch

How to wear wedges from the park to brunch – pair with a little romper, cardigan and great accessories to give a relaxed boho chic look!

How to wear the sporty trend from desk to date

MOMMA NEEDS… a blazer for spring


Yesterday was the first day of Spring – its time to roll out the spring time blazers!


I live in blazers, so when the weather starts to turn warmer I love a light jacket to add a bit of polish to my look.

As I have mentioned here before, I am a jacket addict.  Everything from leather to tweed and from biker jackets to blazers – I just can’t get enough.  And now it’s time to find the perfect blazer for spring.  I know many of you are still in the midst of a polar vortex but spring time is a coming and the perfect blazer is just what you need to get you ready for warmer weather while still being able to layer it up for the enough already cold.  What makes a blazer for spring different from every other blazer is a fabric weight and perhaps even a move away from classic black.  That’s right, white, beige, navy, even a pop of real color might be just what you need to add  something special to your look while still remaining classic.  The blazer is the perfect piece of clothing – its conservative enough for work, yet comfortable enough for chasing little ones while still being cool and stylish enough to feel dressed up for an evening.  You can pair a blazer for spring with everything from jeans to dresses to shorts and everything in between.  It can simultaneously dress down an outfit or dress up an outfit – the versatility makes it one of those must have pieces for every wardrobe.  Check out some my favorite blazers for spring and get excited for some sunshine!
