Kiddo street style.
Warning: cute kiddo fashion ahead!
As a mom, finding whimsical toddler fashion can be challenging. Scratch that, find whimsical girls' fashion that isn't overwhelmingly pink with crowns is a challenge. While every girl deserves a bit of pink in their wardrobe...there is a thing as too much! All of this can be remedied by heading over to Mini Street Style - a new childrens fashion line dedicated to international street style and key fashion trends.
The heart on their clothing symbolizes the community fashion experience and the charities they support financially through their messages. And...well...who doesn't love a big pink heart on their threads?
My girls audibly squealed when our package arrived. We chose the London Eccentric Collection...obvi. Navy, oxblood and pops of pink join forces to create the most adorable pencil skirl and swing dress Olivia and Lola ever did see. And the pieces are interchangeable making an entirely new outfit in a snap.
Dare I say school mornings made easy?
The stocking cap...ridiculous. I love it on Olivia. So many fun separates for boys and girls with fun details like ruching, zippers and vintage cut trends.
Take a peak at the chic Mini Street Style...your mini will be the most fashionable kid on the block.
Apparently when you purge your closet you can actually see all the items you have in it. Novel, right? As much as I used to be a trend follower, you'd be surprised how basic I've really become. Ridiculously basic. Perhaps a basic bitch. <wink, wink>
So here we are. Day 3 of me trying to complete a singular blog post this week and it's 9:20pm on Wednesday night. I am a writer by trade so you can imagine how incredibly unnerving this is for me. I used to crank out five posts a week with ease. And now...I am lucky if I manage two a week. Why? Well...
Summer Fridays are meant to be slightly lazy with a dash of "I woke up like this"...at least in my opinion. I've been wearing these leisure trousers all summer. With an elastic waist, it seems like the perfect solution to a Friday fashion conundrum or a Monday after a weekend full of indulging. Which, is kinda always the case for me. Hello Summer rosé!
It's hard to beat a LWD for summer. It's cool, feminine and crisp even on the days when you feel like you're melting. Melting is in full effect in these parts but I'm not mad at it because that means double the popsicles!
After a long pause from color, I am dipping my toes back in for the 4th of July in a big way! Hello Americana! I am so excited at how easily this outfit came together. Completely unplanned in the best kind of way. I always works that way doesn't it?
Well Happy Friday my people! The temps are rising and I am sharing my favorite summer fashion find - this $28 orange dress! I get more compliments on this lil diddy and for that price, gosh, take two!
I remember reading fashion mags growing up and elite celebrities, style mavens, socialites and models would share their one key closet staple which was typically a classic, white button down shirt or a strong, tailored blazer. And I remember thinking to myself as I rolled my eyes, "How boring." Fast forward 20 years later and I have become that girl.
There's something about these trousers that made me want to have them. It's that cummerbund belt that ratcheted up the coolness factor for me...something I was on the hunt for given my disdain for denim after a long winter. Or is it an obi belt? I am not sure but I'm loving the interesting detail.
You can't take the city out of the girl. It may be Sprummer here in Chicago but black will always be a wardrobe staple in my closet.
I've managed to hang onto these faux leather shorts for nearly a decade and I am so glad I did.
T-minus two days before the big 4-0 and our long awaited trip to New Orleans. I'd like to pretend I've not a care in the world but the truth of the matter is that I have a ten mile long list of items to check off that fluctuate between work, groceries, manicures and most importantly, my littles!
