Wear This To Look Old

June 5th, 2017 by

I have been forced to borrow reading glasses from friends twice in the last few days. Twice. Once to read the minuscule words on a restaurant menu, and another time to read the instruction manual on a piece of clothing. (Yes, some clothes require assembly, and like all instruction manuals, the writing is tiny). Crazy, right, […]

Mom Style Secrets: BeautyMommy Shannon Wollack

March 16th, 2015 by

If you want to know a little bit about Shannon Wollack, sneak a peek at her Instagram account. While mine is filled with badly lit selfies and cute pics of my girls (although you should still totally follow it!), hers looks like the pages of an impossibly chic design magazine. Maybe that’s because Shannon, a former fashion […]

Mom Style Secrets: BeautyMommy Alicia Bell

March 9th, 2015 by

Let’s face it: My time is running out. Lola will be 9 in less than two months, and the other day, I think I detected an eye roll. I ignored it because for now, she is still mine, all mine. (A little bit of Kevin’s too, but mostly mine.) I still get bedtime snuggles and morning […]

Mom Style Secrets: BeautyMommy Madeline Katzel of Matilda Jane

February 23rd, 2015 by

You know when you see something and it makes you want to throw your entire wardrobe out and start over? That’s how it was when I first spotted Matilda Jane, and my daughters’ wardrobes were the ones in question. Or jeopardy. The first time I stumbled across Matilda Jane online, I gasped. I know I’m […]

5 daily hacks

  You know the type. You’ve seen her, dropping her kids off at school, sporting a chic topknot, sunglasses and lipgloss. Or run into her at the grocery store, her tinies hanging on to her cart as she careens through the narrow aisles in skinny jeans and a graphic tee. She is the stylish mom, […]

Mom Style Secrets: BeautyMommy Zankhna Parekh

November 17th, 2014 by

Even though I spend most of my time writing, speaking and thinking about it, I’m a little ambivalent about “mom style.”  After all, I don’t just want to look good “for a mom.” I want to look good, period. But I am a mom – which means that fashion, for me, is inherently different than […]

Mom Style Secrets: BeautyMommy Birgit Grossmann Coles

November 10th, 2014 by

Like all of the stylish moms I’ve featured, Birgit Grossmann Coles inspires me with more than just her style. Birgit, an American of German heritage, is married to a Haitian and has been living in Haiti for 17 years. After the devastation of the 2010 earthquakes, this mother of 3 started Simbi Fashion, a Haitian-made […]

Style Secrets: BeautyMommy Caitlin Skidmore

November 3rd, 2014 by

I am so inspired by Caitlin Skidmore of Greater Than Rubies, and I know you will be, too. In 2012, she was so moved by the poverty she sees every day in her job as the coordinator of a poverty assistance program in North Central Texas that she gave up shopping. For a whole year. Twelve months without a […]

Mom Style Secrets: BeautyMommy Merrick White

October 27th, 2014 by

Sometimes, I choose a stylish mom as much to inspire me as I do to inspire you. This is one of those times. After years of resisting my mother’s attempts to teach me to sew, I have come to terms with the fact that my inability to sew on a button isn’t charming – it’s annoying. […]

Mom Style Secrets: BeautyMommy Kristina Clemens

October 20th, 2014 by

After years of shame and denial, I am ready to come clean on a painful subject. I am not crafty. Well, I am, but not in the good way. 😉 I have a stylish mom who can sew and knit beautifully and a sister who has refinished her own furniture and created gorgeous projects for […]
