i’ve been totally behind on blogging… life has been a bit crazy in the past couple weeks and i’ve been struggling catching up. i have a list of at least 10 posts that i am behind on. i had to share this piece from a really inspiring site called ok real. the site profiles women in all stages of their life–their values and what drives them. the founder, amy woodside, has gathered up profiles on so many inspiring women and i love how she brings out a real side… not your average interview, but something real. i feel honored to have been featured among the other woman, but more importantly, i am thankful that amy met with me and asked me the type of questions that pulled together such an honest feature that i am proud of.

studio style sessions, part 3

March 20, 2015

love this last post from our studio series… its so fun when we get the opportunity to take the kids to the studio and take a lot of great photos. we are so grateful for nate’s studios for so many reasons… this is a little one that happens to mean a lot.

of all the outfits alexa wore for this series, this was her favorite… probably because she picked out her shoes and became obsessed with them.  Continue Reading…

a modern nod to the past.

March 11, 2015

i love (and so does alexa) this adorable line of girls dresses from natty. love how the styles are simple but modern and they have a nod to iconic dress styles of the past. alexa loves that her dress has no buttons… just a zipper (she really hates buttons). Continue Reading…

maman poule + papa cool

March 7, 2015

we were craving a little paris this morning so the kids and i ran out to get some croissants from our favorite french bakery, almondine. yes, almondine is in dumbo so that is convenient, but we really do think they have the best croissants in the city. they taste like paris! their fresh breads and quiches are pretty off the hook too.

our breakfast seemed like an opportune time to share about a cool mom-to-be (and family) concept store out of paris called emoi-emoiContinue Reading…

boyfriend dressing

March 1, 2015

my favorite thing about the trend boyfriend dressing is that it always looks easy & effortless. i like to dress it up with a hell or a platform sandal.  although it typically looks more “day,” it easily transitions to night with a colorful heel, a statement necklace and a bold lip color.

style stories: brightening our winter blues

February 22, 2015

today alexa said, “mommy, i am sorry, but i HATE winter.” i hear ya, love bug. i actually don’t hate winter, but i admit from a style standpoint its super annoying. i’m not sure what is more annoying, the numerous layers required to get dressed, or the fact that the fashion industry–i am pretty sure–decides that winter ends in january.

our kids love new clothes (totally my fault), so we did some cheering up of our winter blues with some cute new looks from old navy.
