Finding stylish maternity clothing isn’t like it used to be – there are so may incredible options for pregnant women that can accommodate they’re growing bump as well as their need for fashion. Whether you are part of the selfie generation or not, it’s important to document this magical time so you may as well get dressed up for it! The great thing is, stylish maternity clothing doesn’t even have to be expensive – let’s face it, you’re only going to wear it for a limited time but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy that time and be proud to pass on your favorites to your next pregnant friend… I always say it, but it’s true, your taste doesn’t change because everything else does – it only needs to be modified. Check out my favorite super stylish maternity clothes of the week to keep you and your bump looking fabulous!
Every now and then it happens, you need dressy kids clothes for a wedding/event where your little ones are actually invited. Time to shift the baby sitter money into a super cute outfit for your little one that is occasion appropriate that they hopefully won’t hate (we all know toddlers love to hate not the looks we love). Adorable dressy kids clothes can be quite frustrating because they may only ever where the look once before they grow out of it and get invited to another event so it’s nice when you can get things that aren’t too expensive or perhaps things that might be a little roomy now that they might be able to wear next year. Regardless, it’s important to take lots of pictures because this might be the only time you get to see them in their dressy kids clothes until christmas! Girls get the run of pretty princess dresses ( that aren’t actually Elsa costumes) which they will surely love but my secret to dressing my little guy is to find him mini versions of what his dad might be wearing… Turns out he can tell when I really want him to wear something (and so wants to fight me on it) but if he sees dad wearing it… Check out some of my favorite dressy kids clothes for all those summer occasions (where they’ve actually gotten an invite) and prepare for cuteness overload.
First for our littlest ones:
And for our slightly bigger little ones:
Quite frankly, a beautiful blouse goes a long way in my book. It’s one of those pieces that services your best for all your needs – from work, to brunch and from a casual day look to a dressed up evening one it’s one of those pieces that goes the distance. Whether you prefer something more polished and conservative or something more relaxed and bohemian – the blouse has so many incarnations. Pair it with everything from jeans to pencil skirts, dress it up or dress it down – it holds it’s own in every situation. Check out some of my favorite pretty versions of the blouse and have one less fashion fret when asking yourself what to wear….
Fabulous summertime accessories are those bits and pieces that actually make your look. I’m not talking about bags, shoes or even jewels (for a change) I’m talking about the hats, sunglasses and scarves that instantly transform your basic pieces into outfits. Its these summertime accessories that protect you from the sun whilst also injecting a bit of something extra special into your look. Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered what your outfit was missing? As a fashion stylist, I know it’s usually the little things that transform an outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. Check out my favorite summertime accessories and add an extra style boost to your look.
I love playing with proportions in my looks so skater dresses (also called fit and flare) are always an easy go to for me. Not only are the pretty and feminine but they’re the ever important figure flattering silhouette we all know and love. Great skater dresses nice you a nice body skimming look on top, nipped in waist and then a fuller skirt (which always makes me happy when I’m trying to hide my bbq weight – you know all those amazing hamburgers and hotdogs). Super easy to wear regardless of shape, age or even age these dresses are a must have since the beginning of time. Check out my favorite skater dresses for summer and find some perfect options for work and play for night and day.
Having super cool pregnancy style is all about looking relaxed, effortless and chic. Now this may seem like an impossibility with the way you’re feeling and the new and different shape your body is taking but, as I’ve said before, it’s all about taking your personal style and adapting it in the most simple, elegant way. I’m not suggesting crop tops and high heels but having a cool pregnancy style might mean a little trapeze dress or romper with a fabulous pair of flats. Styling your bump can be easy and fun if you know what to look for. Check out some of the super cool pregnancy style available this week and get excited about dressing for 2!
The hot weather is here, so while we need less clothes we also want our summer style for less too. All around, the warmer months are less expensive – we eat less and we wear less but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to look great for all those summer bbqs and vacations we have planned. Achieving great summer style for less is closing carefully where we choose to spend money – the perfect go-to summer time dress, fabulous shorts, perfect sandals… It’s all about finding the perfect balance in your look and finding those items that haven’t sacrificed style for price. Check out some of my favorite finds to help you achieve super chic summer style for less!
The go-to summer blouse is the camisole – it’s pretty, feminine and sleeveless. I love pairing them with everything from minis to cut offs and layered with little summer jackets for the crisper evenings – they literally go perfectly with any summer wardrobe. Great camisoles can be simple or adorned, preppy or boho – there are plenty of styles for this perfect little top. Get ready to show off those arms this summer with a bit of sleeveless action (ps – I really need to work on eliminating my bingo wings). Check out some of the greatest camisoles of the season and dress up your summer look with effortless sophistication.
Fabulous espadrilles are the quintessential pairing of comfort and style making them more than just a nice idea – they’re a must have. So simple, elegant and easy to wear they are the perfect summer footwear. Wear them with everything from denim to dresses they’re casual without feeling haphazard. They’re chic without trying too hard and they’re comfortable without looking overly so. They have a polished feel to them whilst totally giving that vacation vibe – they’re espadrilles and they’re spectacular. Move over sneakers, summer is here and it’s time to break out these rope bottoms gems. Check out my favorite espadrilles that you need to have right now!
Sorry jeans, it’s hot out and it’s time to break out the denim cut offs for all my casual summer time affairs (and non affairs). The perfect pair of slightly distressed shorts pair perfectly with everything from t-shirts and tanks and easily dress down your fancier tops. These denim cut offs work for just about every occasion (except, of course for work or weddings) but they’re easy to dress up or down with a change of shoes. Pair them with flat sandals or sneakers for a low key trip to the park, with flip flops to the back or with wedges and a cute blouse for an evening bbq. Great denim cut offs are the perfect blend of casual yet stylish and to top it off they’re super comfortable (and hard to mess up – for those of us with rough and tumble toddlers). Free your legs and get into some of these fabulous shorts! Check out my favorite denim cut offs to get you through summer in effortless style.
