Goodbye, 2010! Looking Forward to a Year of Style (amongst the chaos)
By

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.

How to Wear Plaid Part 1 – Holiday Style
By

Sure, to many of us, plaid smells a lot like teen spirt, but plaid made a strong showing in 2010 and those tenacious tartans are here to stay a bit. How can hip moms play this trend without looking either too young, too old or too ahem. . . rustic? Our four part series on styling plaid for moms will feature plaid pairings from ANMJ contributors, starting with a cheery daytime look I’ve been sporting this holiday season.

A Perfect Post-Partum Outfit: Pooch Hiding, Nursing and Babywearing Friendly
By

PC096231 I love this pic. Despite the fact that Pax was born 3 weeks ago, I hardly look post-partum at all! Happy day. Unfortunately, it’s only a trick of the eye, due in large part to my husbands mad photography skills, the sweet cape/poncho thing I’m wearing, and the fact that I squeezed into a Bella Band per J’s instructions: “put it on so tight you can barely breathe!”
Bella Band or no, this will be my default (aka wear everyday) post-partum outfit until I loose the pooch. Or at least until I lose most of the pooch. Or summer hits…whichever comes first.

Black, White and Shades of Gray – M’s Christmas Wish List
By

We all know this: when it rains it pours. It wouldn’t be a cliche if it weren’t just so dang true. Indeed, it has been a bit of a deluge at my house. So I’m feeling like I just sort of want to keep my head down and sneak out of 2010 and into 2011 nice and slow, without. . . making. . . any. . . waves. I didn’t realize my mood had permeated even my fashion sensibilities until I started clipping my picks for this post and I saw that everything was black, white and gray, hence my Christmas/Holiday 2010 wish list, a collection of drool-worthy if monochromatic gift ideas for mamas.
