I spoke with a girlfriend earlier today about how our wardrobes have changed since having kids. No, its not because our bodies have changed and we can’t fit in to the same kinds of clothes we use to. Actually I personally haven’t had a problem with that..THANK GOD! The problem is I don’t get out much. Haha! No really, I DON’T GET OUT MUCH! I’ve actually gone a full stinkin’ week in the past before I even left the house. Not a proud moment.
But as mommies we sort of all develop our own personal mommy style. Someone else might have their uniform they always wear, but when you see them you think, “Wow, look how put together she is…I wish I could dress like that”. Well, little do we know, but that chick who’s outfit you love has probably worn it twice already this week and wore it last week too. Doesn’t matter…you still envy her style.
Well, my good girlfriend complemented me on my style and how I still “have it”. What a super awesome compliment I think! So here I’m going to share the top 10 things I love for me now that I’m a mom and a stay at home one at that. And yes, I wear the same outfit twice in one week…sometimes even three times.
1) True Religion Stella Skinny Jean in dark blue wash
LOVE LOVE LOVE these jeans! I never in a million years thought I would love skinny jeans, but I do. I’ve tried to buy other brands of skinny jeans and I can’t do it. There is something about this cut that just flatters a girl with some thigh meat. And TR jeans have a wide seam on the outer sides that really thin the leg out more. Totally flattering! Wear them in warm weather with flip flops or ballet flats and in the winter with flat boots. For a night out I just throw on my platform pumps and I’m good to go.
These little sweeties are from J.Crew. I love a good metallic sandal. Perfect for a slightly dressier look in the warmer months.
As I’m sure you are aware, if you spend any sort of time on design and decorating blogs, that faux bamboo furniture is HOT! There’s just something about the look that really gives a room a nice punch of freshness and whimsy. I have been into the bamboo look for probably about ten years now. Living in Southern California the trend in interiors has been leaning towards a coastal look for a while and faux bamboo obviously fits right in. Just look at how this trend makes these rooms sing…
The ever popular Hollywood Regency bamboo dining chair. So pretty with the industrial lights over the kitchen table and those gorgeous (I want them NOW) slipcovered wingchairs. You can find a great little chair just like the one in the picture here!
And in Southern California no doubt! In all my 33 years as a So Cal native, I cannot remember such “WEATHER”! I love it, but I’m sort of not prepared for it. First off I need these:
One of my husbands’ childhood friends finally popped the question to his lovely girlfriend a few months ago. We were and weren’t expecting it…but we’re so glad it did! Since the grooms’ family has a home in Sayulita, Mexico we were pretty sure they might decide to get married there. Well, the word came down and YIPPIE…they are set to be married in Mexico sometime next Fall.
Just recently I got an email from one of my fav designers Christiane Celle of Calypso with their new 2010 goodies. Pretty, pretty, pretty!!! I am such a sucker for yummy sorbet colors, bohemian prints and lots of girly details. I’m going to be good and wait for a sale.
