MOMMA LOVES… the peasant blouse


Max and I in our peasant blouses… Max’s actually came from his Papou’s last trip to Greece!

The peasant blouse is both simple yet chic and beautiful.  There’s a nostalgia about it – a peasant blouse always take me back to my childhood when my mom would dress me in smocked dresses (which she would make herself) and little embroidered blouses which seemed to highlight my greek heritage…   There is a bohemian simplicity to the look which allows it to be referential yet still very modern.  The peasant blouse will always be popular among women and children because its comfortable, sweet and feminine without being overly fussy.  Its timeless and while it may have been what my Greek ancestors wore on a little island over a hundred years ago, it is also what I wear today.  Whether I’m running errands or going out for dinner – its universal appeal has never wavered.  You really can’t tell whether a peasant blouse was bought from Barneys or on the side of a road in Spain.  In fact, you will find that a lot of designers who feature a peasant blouse in their collections were inspired from their travels.  Its funny to think back to the peasant blouses of my childhood and see that those tops are still as ever present in the kids market today.  I love the boho baby look an the peasant blouse is the easiest way to accomplish the look.  Of course, for little boys, it may be more about the fabric, the fit or overall feel – clearly there is not a huge market for boys blouses, but check out some of my favorite peasant blouses for us and our mini-me’s!
