MOMMA PLEASE… kids back to school cool (clothes)


Getting ready for the first day of school with a whole new wardrobe!!

Well, summer is on it’s way out and it’s time for the kids to go back to school – which also means it’s time to do some shopping.  I remember as a kid planning all my new outfits for my return to class.  Well, my Max may not really care, but I am loving doing a bit of back to school shopping for his adorable new looks for the fall.  Kids are not easy on their clothes, so it’s just as well they grow out of them so quickly, although not always the best for our pocket books… Fortunately there is a great range in prices tags for back to school worthy kids clothes!  Getting them dressed and ready in the morning is undoubtably a chore, so get them excited with some amazing new outfits (and you can be excited that you get your life back).  Check out my favorite back to school looks for our little ones and take plenty of pictures because time sure flies…

MOMMA LOVES… fabulous footwear

As the hottest new shoes for the next season are becoming available I have to do my fabulous footwear post which is a long time favorite of mine… The Carrie Bradshaw in me is completely drawn to the most fantastical, aspirational wild and crazy pieces that look more suitable to a museum than the street.  Thanks to innovative designers such as Sophia Webster and Charlotte Olympia we can sometimes take the dive and invest in these wearable works of art.  They’re fun, they’re whimsical and they’re what I call water cooler shoes.  True fabulous footwear never goes unnoticed, they make men, women and children stop and comment.  They can be crazy expensive and simply be aspirational but they’re too fun not to take about, so check out my favorite latest and greatest fabulous footwear for the upcoming season!

MOMMA LOVES… summer white


Soak in the last bit of summer with some fabulous whites!

Today I am wearing what I call summer white – a simple chiffon blouse with a blazer both in a shade of white that’s lighter than cream and my husband made the comment that he thought I looked beautiful in white.  Well, that was enough of a reason for me to turn my attention to the official non color of summer.  With August fast approaching its time to get in all that gorgeous summer white while you can!  I personally am also a fan of winter white, so fear not – this is not a short term investment but people just tend to wear it more during the warmer months…  Gorgeous summer white feels fresh and clean and illuminates your skin, all while keeping you cool in the heat.  Yes, we may need to clean it some more so invest in some oxiclean and rest in the fact that at least it’s not a color that can fade…  So check out my favorite summer white pieces and soak in the sun (but not too much heat) while the summer is still in full force!

MATERNITY MONDAY… the best maternity clothes

Pregnancy doesn’t mean the end of style, it just means a hunt for the best maternity clothes that make you feel chic and comfortable.  Dont try squeezing into you  normal clothes (the ones without stretch anyway) – that always looks way to constrictive and tragic…  Just embrace your belly evolution and I can help you find some of the best maternity style on the market.  Retailers these days understand that expecting a baby doesn’t mean your stop expecting great fashion and so they’re are so many incredible, trend driven options available.  In fact, maybe this is the time to experiment with trends more since they generally only last about 9 months and you’ll only be pregnant for that amount of time…  Do NOT go spending big money on this stuff but DO go for things you like and can feel like yourself in.  Check out the best maternity options for all you super stylish expectant mom’s out there who want to look and feel great throughout pregnancy (and beyond).

MOMMA LOVES… sexy off the shoulder style


Show some skin without giving it all away with some sexy off the shoulder options.

Eh, it’s summer time, some off the shoulder action is the perfect amount of skin to look and feel sexy without feeling over exposed.  Everything from casual day blouses to a sexy dress for a night out on the town looks better with a bit of a bare shoulder.  Not everyone feels comfortable being overtly sexy with exposing cleavage or the popular mid riff  so opting for something that’s off the shoulder gives just the right amount of skin without giving it all away.  This is the perfect summer look for a great bbq with friends, that August vacation you have planned or even just relaxing at the park – its super sexy with an air of relaxation.  Check out my favorite off the shoulder looks that you can embrace with confidence and style while the hot weather is still with us!

MOMMA WANTS… to watch out for watches


They’re very different but I love these watches! Talk about form and function!

I’m someone that’s always on time so I’ve always worn watches.  Years ago my husband (then boyfriend) gave me a rolex for Christmas which I absolutely love – its a men’s size so it has the practicality of time telling but feels like a pieces of jewelry.  This has always been my go-to but in recent years thanks to the iPhone and not wanting to scratch my baby with it I’ve worn it less and less… The the apple watches came out.  I am a sucker for all apple products so, of course I had to have it…  Yes it tells time, but I also love the fitness element, this watch was less about the fashion and all about the technology.  It also reignited my love for watches and for the first time I thought I should be posting about all the latest, greatest watches both for the fashion savvy and the tech lovers out there.  Check out my favorite watches and lets go back to using our phones for calls, texts and social media…

MOMMA LOVES… 60s prints


A great poppy 60′s style print is always a great pattern to incorporate into your wardrobe!

I’m a huge fan of fun patterns and 60s prints are always a fun one to experiment with.  The 60s were an era of exploration, experimentation, love and free spirit so these are the pop prints our mom’s wore and that we have, probably, been drawn to most of our lives.  There are definitely times when 60s prints are more on trend than others but, quite frankly, they never really go away.  Pucci, after all, has built an empire on the retro style.  The key to not looking like you’re not dressing up for a themed costume day is to translate these 60s prints in a more modern way.  Perhaps it’s in the cut or silhouette or the way it’s paired but the best rule of thumb is if you’re going to wear something 60s don’t go head to toe with the theme.  Check out my favorite 60s print style and have fun with your fashion (and look fab too).

MOMMA LOVES… shrunken bags syndrome


For reals Max, I’m totally feeling the Gucci shrunken bag…

It’s the super hot accessory trend I call shrunken bags – miniature versions of the accessories we know and love.  These are perfect for when you don’t feel like carrying around everything but the kitchen sink… They’re very small – almost clutch size bags that are often cross body and transition perfectly from day to night.  I have to say, it’s silly, but I hate carrying my huge day bag to the restaurant so having these shrunken bags are a great option!  They’re the same great trends that we adore in our daytime accessories but without the weight – just carry some money, credit cards, a lipstick and your phone and really, that’s all you need!  Check out my favorite shrunken bags of the moment and say good bye to the carry all for day and hello to these little babies!
