A month or so ago, I was contacted by the folks over at I-Ella, asking if I'd like to try out The List, a monthly gift bag subscription filled with a selection of hand-picked designer goodies and free stuff. It sounded good, but I'm leery of letting someone else do the picking.  Because, well...picking stuff...that's my thing, right?  And I'm always annoyed...
  I almost bought that Philip Lim for Target dress.  The one that looks like a long sweatshirt over a skirt?  (I featured it in yesterday's collage.)  But Mike was lukewarm about the whole thing, and admittedly the fit was strange.  So I skipped it, only to re-create it with pieces I had at home. And I think I like this...
I think one of my very favorite things is when a reader emails me a pic and says, "I did it!"  You guys are awesome.  Love sharing the love so we can all be a bit more inspired.     How awesome is this pic of reader Meredith rocking the Sporty-Chic trend?  She writes: In Texas, it's most definitely still summer. But, inspired...

I'm thrilled to have OE back (remember this?).  OE is a dear friend, and the fabulously talented mama behind Girl Meets Baby.  I'm gaga over her take on Doc Martens.  Enjoy!!   Hello again ANMJ readers...

This short little haircut has served me well.  But it's thinned to the point that I have major bald spots on the top of my head, and can't leave the house without a hat.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember seeing the ginormous clump of hair that fell out this morning.  UGH.  There is hair on...
Time to raid your guy's closet Mamas!  Here are a few fun ways to rock the menswear trend: Wear a Tie I've done this before....but I'm currently obsessing over Mike's skinnier, more casual knit tie.  Love it with my flannel shirts and shiny loafers. wearing: shirt: old J.Crew....similar here tie: J.Crew Men bag: Moop's Paperback bag jeans:  Rag and Bone The Skinny shoes: Aerosoles (on sale for...
Mamas!  One of the very biggest trends this Fall is to wear multiple patterns at once.  This "mixed print" styling trick started a few years back, and is still gaining momentum.  So.  If there was one. thing. a Mama could do to easily update her whole look...this is it.  From time-to-time I've gotten reader questions about styling mixed prints, so...
If you follow me on Instagram (@shanachristine), you know that my hair started falling out last night.  I have a feeling that these next few days?  weeks? will be the strangest of my life.  It's kinda like post-partum shedding, but more.  And if I reach up and give a little tug, I can pull out a tiny clump.   Which...

Shopping: Sporty Chic

Mamas, I have baseball hats, track pants, and sporty striped shirts on the brain.  Here are a few pieces I've been obsessing over...   1. Walk the Dog I'm kinda loving the whimsical dog-print quilted joggers ($70 from Topshop) with a bright sneaker and wool hat. ps.  Target has a slightly similar hat for only $12.  2.  Camo Cool I love the unexpected navy camo...

Fall Trends: Sport Chic

Mamas, have I the trend for you.  We've talked about track pants ad naseum, but there is oh-so-much-more sporty joy in this world: stripey tees, comfy joggers, playground sneaks, and baseball hats eve-er-ee-where.  My comfort-loving heart just wants to explode with joy. Here's a few thoughts on sportin' the sporty duds.... Yay For Hat Head! I mean really.  Enough said, right?  (And...
