Spotlight on Goodnight Macaroon (Not-To-Be-Missed For Easy, Affordable Holiday Style)

When Goodnight Macaroon first reached out, I guess I was expecting an online children’s bookstore.  Imagine my surprise and delight when I realized that Goodnight Macaroon is actually a very clever name for an online boutique specializing in of-the-minute clothing (at reasonable prices).

This jacket, for example, is just the thing to dress up a turtleneck/graphic tee situation.  (See?  I promised I’d work that turtleneck in somewhere.)  And if you’ve been reading The Mom Edit closely over the last week, you may have already stumbled upon a few other Goodnight Macaroon pieces.  (This Ramones tee is theirs as well.  Raines picked it out for me – it’s his fav band.  And this outfit was totally inspired by this one on Happily Gray.)

[Side note:  I’ve been getting several questions about photography – equipment, settings, etc.  I’ve included shot details with the last pic (the one that also has outfit deets).  I’d also love to hear from you seasoned photographers with tips/tricks/improvements…..Thanks!!]

(photo info:  All pics taken outside of the skating rink at Dilworth Park in Philly by Mike Draugelis.  Mike used the outdoor rink lights as the lights for the shoot.  Equipment: nikon d610, nikkor 85mm lens (f1.4).…Settings: iso 3200, exposure 1/200,  f/2.5)

wearing:

jacket: Goodnight Macaroon Houndstooth Notch Collar Coat c/o (size XS – runs a bit big)

tee:  Goodnight Macaroon Ramones Tee

turtleneck: J.Crew Tissue Tee

leather shorts: i-Ella c/o (and long gone)….but Goodnight Macaroon’s High Waisted Faux-Leather skirt would work (I found that their skirts run a tad small)

stockings: Wolford (see this post for a huge list of similar stockings)

heels: old….but these Sam Edelman heels are similar

baubles: old, but try Stella and Dot’s Sutton Necklace layered with their Somerville Necklace

 

I have a confession:   I love these heels, but….I don’t really wear heels to walk around the city.  And it was date night for Mike and I which often means wandering, sooooo….here’s what I actually wore after the shoot:

This jacket has been getting some serious play in the morning school-dropoff scene, too.  It turns out that a long, tailored, tweedy jacket is JUST THE THING to camouflage pj tops and sweatpants.  I mean….I’m reasonably sure no one knows what I’m wearing under there.  I haven’t noticed any funny looks or anything….which, admittedly, is hard when you are all-out sprinting down the street to get your six year old to school before the bell rings.  GOD KNOWS HOW I HATE having to fill out office paperwork as to why my son is late AGAIN.  At this point, the answer should be obvious.  #crazymother

  1. I die. I can’t decide whether I’m in love with you (rockstar eyeliner and leather…be still my heart) Raines (because the Ramones, obviously. And clearly the kindred child spirit of my 5yo son with his Run DMC and Bob Dylan tees who I just GET, you know?) or just the whole friggin enchilada. Make ’em leather pants and I would wear this outfit…forever.

    • Um, you didn’t mention the turtleneck. (LOL) But thanks, Babe. It does sound like our little guys are kindred spirits for sure. (Have you heard of the School of Rock? We’re seriously considering lessons there for R….)

      • Oh, would love to hear if you do! We went to a School of Rock bday party and were just SO underwhelmed. But with multiples here in DC I could definitely check out another location…

    • No kidding!! 10% fee on returns? $30 shipping charge on returns over $150? I’m also sort of confused by their shipping from Hong Kong but claim everything is made the United States…

      • Hi Kimberly, we have both US and Hong Kong warehouses, you can send your return to our portland address. 10% handling fee is only charged when you do not wish to receive store credit, and shipping charge on returns over $150 is because we didnt charge for shipping in the first place ( but we still have to pay for international shipping when we ship the items to you). We do not wish to charge anything from our customers, but international business has a lot of hidden fees and we are doing our best to be fair to our customers. Most of our customers are from the US and we are doing our best to provide a hassel free return policy. We will certainly take your feedback into consideration. Thank you.

    • I made the mistake of purchasing from them once. The blouse I received was literally falling apart at the seams. It cost me more to return it than it did to buy it in the first place. And customer service was AWFUL to deal with. Just a FYI. Maybe it was just my one experience, you never know, but the company came across as very shady at best.

      • Really Kayley? I actually had such a great shopping experience with them. Customer service replied me almost instantly after my email got sent out. I love my sweater though, which blouse did you get?

  2. My boys ask every morning if we are just on time, a little late or really late – I feel like signing the book with “I’ve got 3 friggin’ kids to clothe, feed and pack up in the morning” as my reason for tardiness but I see them too often to burn my bridges in that office, ha ha.
    Love your date night look, lucky Mike! 🙂

  3. I am obsessed with this website now – followed it from your fur coat suggestion on how to glam up your look and now I’ve placed my first order.

    Such cute and reasonable pieces!
