MOMMA LOVES… leopard print accessories

One of the most iconic prints of all time is the leopard print.  Its feminine yet cool, its lady like yet bohemian and leopard print accessories can add that extra pop of style into even the most ordinary outfit.  Adding a bag, shoe even a belt in this animal print adds an extra polish that can turn your walk in the park jeans and t-shirt into brunch with the ladies.  It is as wearable for the office as it is for a night out on the town.  The leopard print never goes out of style and is always a great investment as its the easiest way to add a splash of something special to your overall  look.  For those who might feel intimidated by the look – leopard print accessories are the easiest way to wear it!  Your go-to little black dress or jeans and a t-shirt look instantly transform  into an effortlessly stylish look with a shoe or bag in this fabulous print.  Check out some of my favorite leopard print accessories for us and our little ones – and I may have thrown in some extra accessories for the little ones that they can’t really wear but they’ll enjoy all the same!

MOMMA LOVES… babies wearing black

Who says babies can’t wear black?  A friend of mine sent me a book called Urban Babies Wear Black right after I had Max and I love reading it to him and I love dressing him in black.  Its elegant yet has a bit of an edge – and then there’s the added benefit that black hides a multitude of stains!  Black is the forgotten neutral for babies – people tend to gravitate towards white, yellow, green for non gender specific colors but how sweet and somewhat ironic is it to see these little ones in the urban favorite? Babies wearing black is actually one of my favorite things to see and beyond cute!  It somehow manages to highlight their sweetness and innocence.  Black also lends itself to more humorous and fashion forward designs which are always a crowd favorites.  Check out some of my favorite little black looks for our little ones…
