Pineapple Print

   

  

  

 Pineapple print is a big trend for summer, and I was thrilled when Rails LA put the print on my favorite shirt…the Britt rolled sleeve. Lightweight and easy, perfect for the summer heat. I paired it with Arizona Birkenstocks, a leather crossbody from Hammitt LA, and my favorite One Teaspoon Bandits. 

Get the look at LaLa Couture Boutique. Call 954-712-1100 to order.

The Shirt Dress

    
      
   
Since it’s bodering on scorching here in South Florida, I like to keep my summer outfits light and airy. That’s why I LOVE this shirt dress. It’s casual, easy and flattering. It’s by a brand called Glam and they sell these dresses at LaLa Couture. I have it in so many colors! My favorite is the pink (and that happens to be my hubby’s fave color on me!) Their summer colors are on sale now and it’s less than $50! Call 954-712-1100 to order. 

The sandals are by Joie and are currently on sale on their website here. It’s one of the best purchases I’ve made! Plus there are three colors to choose from and an additional 20% off through August 3rd.

My sunglasses are by Quay Australia, also available at LaLa (bonus-they’re $39!) My handbag is the Amorous Satchel in biscuit by Rebecca Minkoff. By the time I posted this blog it had sold out, but the white is just as beautiful for summer and is also on sale here.

Happy sale shopping!

XOXO,

Black and White is Always Right

   

  

  

  

There’s no replacing the classic look of black and white. Although I am a huge fan of bold color, especially for summer, I love to tone it down every once in a while. 

I am so excited that slides have come back into style! It does take me back to my college days…but as a new mom I’m more excited about the comfort. I sprung for some tan Birkenstocks but also wanted  other colors and didn’t want to break the bank. These are from Forever21. They’re comfy and on trend. I sized up a half size.

My entire outfit (minus the shoes) is from LaLa Couture Boutique. The jogger shorts are by Heather. Tank is from Chaser paired with a lace Coobie bra. Sunnies are by Quay Australia and are available for purchase at LaLa. Call 954-712-1100 to order. 
XOXO,

Pretty in PinkBlush: What to Wear After Baby

purple dress 2purple dress 3purple dress 1kimono 2 kimono 3 kimono 4 It’s one of the biggest fashion dilemmas a postpartum mom can face: how to look trendy while nursing.  As if nursing wasn’t hard enough, new moms are faced with the challenge of finding comfortable, fashionable pieces that make nursing a breeze. And if your baby is anything like my baby, he is always hungry!

Let’s face it- there isn’t much out there by way of cute maternity/nursing clothing. That’s why I was so excited to find PinkBlush. Not only do they have a cute, affordable and trendy women’s line, they also have maternity as well as nursing clothing. Score!

I love this ruffled dress for a few reasons. First, the ruffle hides some of the extra baby weight. Second, it’s got a zipper down the center- talk about perfect for nursing! Third, it’s super lightweight for summer. I paired it with a denim vest and gladiator sandals.

For anyone that knows my style, I LOVE cardigans/kimonos or anything I can throw on over a simple outfit to make it pop. Bonus: this cardigan can be worn before and after pregnancy and can double as a nursing cover! Here I paired it with a simple camisole, denim shorts and gladiator sandals.

Something Old, Something New: Baby J’s Room

If I hadn’t gotten into the fashion industry, I would have loved to have pursued a career in interiors/home design. I absolutely LOVE design and decorating. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I began designing the nursery. I knew right away I wanted something contemporary, but with a mixture of different design elements, textures and neutral colors. I wanted a high-end looking nursery but on a budget.

Bring on Pinterest! I created numerous boards and poured over hundreds of photos on my Houzz app. Which was perfect for those sleepless pregnancy nights. I came across the adorable animal print photos from the Animal Print Shop and decided on a “baby animal” theme.

The next decision was furniture. I already had a beautiful natural wood daybed that folds out into a full size bed. It’s great for when guests come over, as it provides extra seating, as well as an extra place for guests (or mom!) to sleep. I also had an ivory dresser from Crate and Barrel that was not being used, and that fit perfectly into the nursery’s theme. I originally wanted all white furniture, but decided to use items I already had instead of sell them. Since the dresser is ivory, I knew a white crib would not look right. I chose the Childcraft Logan Convertible Crib in espresso, because I thought the dark wood would contrast nicely with the pops of gray (bonus- it was only $200 and converts to a toddler bed and a full size bed for when Jake gets older!) We chose the Kelcie glider from walmart.com. It was a bargain, easy to clean and is so comfy! Very happy with this purchase!

The adorable cat chair and bookcase were both purchases I made in college. My mom and I had gone “antiquing” in Havana, FL and stumbled across those adorable pieces. I’ve had them for over 18  years and they fit perfectly in the nursery.

I wanted to keep the colors neutral- mostly grays, taupes, soft blues, espresso,  ivory, silver with a bright pop of chartreuse. To me, this was soothing and comforting for both the baby and me. I love mixing textures and prints.

For the bedding, I registered at Pottery Barn Kids. This is the Harper nursery bedding. I love the chevron print and think it looks super cute in the room. I plan on taking the bumpers out (for safety reasons) until Jake is older, but for now, we are using the crib as a changing area so it is perfectly safe. The mobile with the adorable animals is also from Pottery Barn Kids.

My sister and her boyfriend came into town to help me put the nursery together. We decided to paint the walls gray (they were tan before) and I love the color we chose – Silver Bullet by Behr. Next on our list was to pick out the accessories.

We found the perfect frames for our animal prints from Bed, Bath & Beyond. We also needed blackout curtains and loved the textured ones we found. Now it was off to Target and HomeGoods! At HomeGoods I found the lighted “J” as well as the hassock, giraffe on the dresser, cute zebra and the worded throw pillows. It was all starting to come together!

Our last stop was Target. I could not believe our luck as we found our remaining items! The chartreuse stand, mod lamp, the printed rug, and the remaining throw pillows could not have been more perfect!

XOXO,
