We received several comments from yesterday's post regarding LOFT's fabulous orange windbreaker.  Specifically, reader Dusti wanted to know: "I'm thinking of getting the orange jacket, but I am wondering how to best style it with skinnies? I'd like to make it a staple for the spring...what are your thoughts of a few options what to wear...
  Until Tuesday, the entire inventory (both in-store and online) is 40% off at LOFT.  In the last few years, LOFT has re-invented itself, and their new designs, coupled with decent prices, has made LOFT (in my opinion) a no-brainer for moms. Sooo...now they are offering 40% off new basics to wear now and into Spring?  Yes, please.  While...
It's a well known fact that The Sartorialist is one of the arbiters of cool.  Fashionistas everywhere would love to be featured in his blog, and Time Magazine identified him as one of the top 100 design influences. So when one of his latest shots (pictured) featured Danskos...well, I have to concede a point. I suspect this woman caught his...
(photo credit) So if any of you are finding time to pick up a fashion mag these days, you may have noticed lots of chatter about flared jeans.  Reader Gretchen posted this question: ...I'd be really curious to read your take on Vogue's assertion that long and lean (especially with regard to somewhat high-waisted and flowing pants) is the...
...after years of nannying in a skirt (for kiddos of all ages), here are her rules for rockin' the skirt with toddlers underfoot:
I love the idea of a plaid shirt for date night.  The casual nature of plaid lends itself well to an overall effortless BLAH BLAH BLAH. Really, I just like to be comfortable.  You too?  Good.  Keep reading. My first thought was to tuck the plaid into a high-waisted pencil skirt. Soooo...I just hiked my standby black pencil skirt up near my...
I've often admitted to snobbish tendencies where denim is concerned.  While I was pretty impressed last year with Gap's new denim line, 1969, it still doesn't hold a candle to the superior bum-styling of higher-end denim.  (NOTE:  I will concede that Gap's jeggings are all pretty fabulous, and my current favs). But in my opinion, all moms should have at...
Reader Emily left this comment on our article, The Short Boot Dilemma: Can we get a picture of short lace-ups with leggings? I own both and can't see them working together... Since then, I've been looking for a cool outfit picture that not only shows the short lace-up boots paired with leggings...but one that is also mom-friendly.  I think I...
One of the biggest problems with the post-partum pooch is that it sticks out farther than your boobs. Lovely. This plaid shirt, however, helps camouflage that sad fact by adding a few extra inches to 'the girls' via ruffles. Bring 'em on. Buying this shirt a size (or two) bigger, and layering it over a slippery shaper cami also does wonders.
Being a huge New Year's geek (seriously - it's my very favorite holiday), I always like to take some time at the start of a new year to reflect. Now that I'm a parent, it's both harder to find that time, but more important that I do. Ironic, no? My single biggest goal for 2011 is to be a more mindful parent. To be present, in the moment. To not be distracted by worry, or all the stuff that creeps into our lives. I can't believe how fast these three years have flown past...and already I can see the little boy my baby is becoming. I want to enjoy every moment I can, with both of my boys.
