Cute Workout Gear For Moms – Not Just For Working Out
By

Until….4 weeks after the little man was born, I found myself despairing because I had copious amounts of spit-up on my only good pair of sweat pants. The old me would have objected at the clear oxymoron: “good pair of sweatpants.” But screw old me. I was sleep deprived, all other clothing rubbed painfully against my c-section scar, and at this point, walking outside was a lofty goal, with a daily shower a pipe dream. So I decided to embrace the workout-gear-as-outfit philosophy. It’s comfortable, it’s practical (getting out of the house is cause for celebration so one might as well go somewhere, even if it’s Target), and with the vast array of cute workout clothes on the market, why not? Over a year later, I still find myself in workout gear well into the afternoon hours. I hope my husband finds uniboobs somewhat sexy. Here are my current pics for cute workout gear:

Hot Shoes for a Well Deserved Night Out
By

I have noticed that in the last couple of years high heel trends have shifted a bit. The bootie – which was just getting big when I was pregnant two years ago – is still here, and is influencing the stiletto. Stilettos are now serious, dominatrix looking things, straps and studs and craziness everywhere, and the resulting look is a little stronger – more sexy, less sweet. I predict that this shoe trend will continue well into fall….and this trend makes my tasteful (yet still sky high) strappy sandals look almost dowdy by comparison. Time for a seriously sexy shoe to sex up my old existing going-out outfits.

Chic, Original Clothing for Kids that is Simply Drool-Worthy and Affordable

Her line is a little big boho, a little bit rocker, but SO chic and clean. It’s so good, in fact, that it’s almost wasted on the kids! Almost. What I find so refreshing – besides the use of re-purposed fabric – is the fact that she manages to infuse a children’s line with chic, never veering into the realm of cutesy, fussy or trying to hard. She just offers great design, great lines, and great fabric. It’s a recipe so deceptively simple that you almost miss the genius behind it. And the fact that this line is also so ridiculously affordable (prices range from $6 – $44) is simply the icing on the cake.

Should Moms Wear Slouchy, Cropped Trousers?
By

The question I’m struggling with…are the slouchy cropped trousers a good choice for moms? The higher waist is very mom friendly – no muffin-top potential, hides a slight pooch belly and won’t irritate a c-section scar – and the bum is loose enough to high any sagginess problems. However, after careful consideration, my answer is…

I’m pretty sure colorful stripes are the universal sign for Spring. Or maybe it’s floral patterns, but stripes are right up there. In any case, Anne looked great and made me want to run right out and find something stripey. For being so Spring-inspired, she is our March Mom!

By

Inspired, as I was, by my Victoria vacation, and the super cool rain boots I purchased for the little man….I started wondering if I too could pull off wearing rain boots.

Best Rain Boots for Kids

Splashers rain boots are made in Canada (Yay! Not China!), have a moisture wicking inner lining, are completely puddle (or ocean) proof and sturdy as hell. With the exception of the camo print, their other designs are very, very cool.

When you see your precious child in this retro-inspired organic cotton pajama sleeper from HappyGreenBaby.com, you’ll immediately flash back to those Saturday morning cartoon marathons spent slurping down Lucky Charms on rust-colored shag carpet, only without all the pesticides and chemicals we all rolled around in and ate.
