Every once in a while I have to take my daughter with me to an evening event. I’ll make the exception if the event is relatively kid friendly and on the weekends. I want my daughter to be comfortable in all settings….weather she needs to introduce herself to an artist at his gallery opening, or to new kids at a birthday party. We have to have the social skills to handle it all!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a style feature. It just warmed up in NYC and I’m finally able to shed the layers and get into some of the spring and summer styles my west coast friends have been rocking for months! I’m happy to announce that I’m packing away the leggings and looking forward to dressing with more intention 🙂
I invest in outerwear because we spend SO much time walking around NYC. This signature red plaid peacoat has been a staple for warmer winter days. From classic to glam….a tartan inspired coat like our favorite featured below makes a statement and provides serious versatility all season long. Continue to scroll for 3 ways to style this adorable Cat & Jack coat. Basics, for everyday, a playful spin with lots of accessories and a glammed out look complete with mommy’s fur stole.
I can’t get over a kid in a topcoat!!! (Heart eyes emoji here)
With bright accessories, the right fall coat can be so versatile and transition you from fall to winter with ease (and style!). This top coat by Gap Kids gives the possibilities for so many styles and is perfect from black tie to crisp fall days.
My favorite tradition is opening our brand new pajama sets on Christmas Eve.
A little black dress can always be counted on to deliver a best-dressed look with zero effort.
Don’t give up on your floral prints for fall and winter! Florals don’t always have to be girly and pastel—and they don’t have to be worn exclusively in the spring and summer either.
When styled correctly, tulle can be so romantic and chic. Perfect for this beautiful day on Chicago’s southside, this tulle skirt by Pink Blush is definitely a new summer staple for me. It’s versatile enough to be styled with pumps and sneakers. It’s also strong enough to hold it’s shape and give just the right amount of playfulness for this windy city 🙂 I’ll definitely be returning to this trendy online boutique to check out the other colors. It also comes in black and pink!
Here I am again in all this black and white. I promised myself at the beginning of the summer that I was gong to incorporate more color. Yet here we are today….
There are a few wildcard months in New York where I’m clueless about how to dress….mostly during the transitional months. April and May are a toss up. Summer could creep in early, or winter could hang on. We never know. September and October could have us still rocking bare thighs or bundled in fur hoods.
It’s currently April and we’re dealing with the last bits of winter, while remaining optimistic about spring. What was snow for the past 3 months has turned to rain, but every once in a while the clouds part and we get a sunny day.
