  For those of you so inclined (and much, much more talented than I am), I found a fantastic DIY option for a cool winter hat with an urban feel.  The Cadet Hat, shown, is a free pattern that you can download from Kathryn Ivy.  It's listed as a project for "all skill levels", which makes me really curious....
We don't do cutesy in this family.  We don't do clothing with puppies, kitties, bunnies, or even happy little hammers with slogans like, "Daddy's Little Helper!"  I can't do it.  I.....just....can't....do it. I'm also not a fan of anything too sporty, too preppy, too scratchy, too stiff. I'm starting to sound like Dr. Seuss. I do not like them...
The Splendid one-shoulder ruched tunic top ($49.00) doesn't look like much at first glance, but it's my new date night MVP for moms. Anyone can wear it and look hot and it can be styled up and down, sideways and every which way in between. The ruching is your post-baby-belly’s best friend, it’s crazy-good for nursing/pump-n-dumping (on your right side, anyway) and the one-shoulder cut is current, edgy and sexy without trying too hard. Oh, and you’ll be comfortable, ohhh so comfortable, in this buttery soft, whisper thin cotton/modal tee.
Question: I have a friend's birthday party at the end of the month. We are celebrating at a country bar-- the kind that has a mechanical bull and everything. She is turning 33 (I am 28) and she's the friend who I always go to for fashion advice (since I have no clue when it comes to that). WWYW? (What...
 Gang, meet Rumi, the author of the Fashiontoast blog.  This blog, if you've never followed it, is one of my go-to blogs for inspiration.  It's gorgeous.  Her blog is how I want to dress if I don't have to run around at the playground.  Or bend over and pick up a kiddo.  Or go to work.  Think lots of...
Reader Question: Can you recommend some good, winter slip-on shoes for moms with young babies?I loved your sneakers post, but when I have a baby strapped to me or clinging to one arm and a purse in the other, I just can't bend over to tie my shoes. For the same reasons, my zip up boots are getting more...
Reader Question: Hi!  I bought a couple of fun tops for the holidays, and my question is - can I wear sequins after New Year's? I have a friend's 30th coming up, and wondering if I can still pull it off. Thanks! Answer: I have a tendency to ignore traditional fashion "rules" (I wear white after labor day, mix black, brown and...
Caro, the author of one of my very favorite blogs, It Looks Good To Me, waxes nostalgic on the denim-on-denim trend. Denim on denim can be tricky, but so comfortable and chic when done well.  I especially love a super-soft chambray shirt paired with darker jeans.   In her blog, Caro shows several denim-on-denim pics for inspiration (including this one from...
Confession:  I actually hate shopping sales.  While I love the thrill that comes from finding a bargain, I hate the digging through racks, the frantic pace, the pressure to make a decision NOW!  BEFORE IT'S GONE!  And I hate that, invariably, most of the items I buy on sale I end up donating to charity before the year is out....
I’m a mom of two tiny boys and as such, I spend much of my week in jeans and t-shirts. There’s little else that’s appropriate for playground outings, trips to the zoo and building block towers on the floor, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try to look good . . . in addition to being somewhat vain, my husband works from home, for goodness sake, so I try to keep greasy hair and pajamas-till-noon days to a minimum in the interest of keeping the luv alive. Enter fancy tees.
