#NowTrending - Women's Sneakers For Fall

#NowTrending - Women's Sneakers For Fall

I will preface with this - I wasn't ever really someone you would consider a "sneaker girl." In fact, I avoided them at all cost! They honestly always looked so weird to me paired with jeans and not athletic clothes, or if I wore them casually. I struggled to find the right balance wearing sneakers -until now. This fall, women's sneakers are making a comeback in a huge way - and I'm not talking about the athletic kinds, but the everyday, relaxed, casual sneakers that are now looking effortlessly cute being paired with denim and your favorite boyfriend cardigan - promise. Beyond[...]
Family Fun at The Belmont Race Track

Family Fun at The Belmont Race Track

To me, a HUGE part of motherhood is the adventures you have with your family -- learning, growing, and trying new things together. It's not just the fun part of being a parent, but also the most memorable for everyone! I have such fun memories of growing up and going on vacations or day trips that brought us all together through funny situations where we laughed until we had belly aches! My goal is to have those same experiences for me and my boys. So, whenever the opportunity came up to spend a day at The Belmont Race Track I jumped on[...]
Wide Leg Pants For The Pear Shape

Wide Leg Pants For The Pear Shape

Okay, fashion can be a fickle thing sometimes, because it's constantly changing. I will say this though and mean it forever: a well tailored, well proportioned, well made pair of pants will look great on you forever...promise! Wide leg pants are great and can definitely be worn by all body shapes, you just have to put some work into finding the right pair for you. The thing about wide leg pants is that they are as far opposite in silhouette from our beloved skinnies as possible -- so you need to make sure you keep that in mind. Typically when wearing[...]
American Girl Abroad - Smitten by Scotland

American Girl Abroad - Smitten by Scotland

As I departed the USA for both Iceland and Scotland, I confess that Scotland was a bit of an afterthought for me, pumped up that I was for the Iceland portion that came first. (American Girl Abroad: Function vs. Fashion in Iceland). But Scotland wasted no time grabbing my inner romantic's heart, much like that day when I was fourteen and first saw Brigadoon, a musical that had me smitten by Scotland and its many charms. Do you know the play?  Brigadoon is chockfull of absolutely gorgeous songs like “Come to Me, Bend to Me” and “Almost like Being in Love”.  It's time[...]

Calling All NYC Moms--Box Butler is at Your Service! {Giveaway}

Calling All NYC Moms--Box Butler is at Your Service! {Giveaway}

I’ll admit it, I’m a pack rat, a fashion hoarder, a keeper of all things totally unnecessary of keeping—ya know…just in case! I didn’t realize how severe my problem was until moving to NYC from our much more spacious Virginia apartment four years ago. Now here we are with one growing 6 year old, my ever-expanding wardrobe, and a husband whose obsession lies in his coat collection—all in a tiny NYC apartment! I’ve mentioned in the past that as I change my wardrobe over from season to season that I always go through the clothing items one by one for all[...]
Shopping for Wide Leg Pants

Shopping for Wide Leg Pants

You may think that because I am on the shorter side that I steer clear of wide leg pants for my apple shaped body -- but that couldn't be more far from the truth! No matter what body shape you have, you can totally rock this style and do it effortlessly! Yes, most of the pants hanging in the closet are skinny pants or leggings, but that's mostly because I try my hardest to work with the assets of my figure (my skinny yet shapely legs) and show that off through my clothing. My strategy is to accentuate the positive (my[...]
5 Reasons Why We Love Animal Prints

5 Reasons Why We Love Animal Prints

We all know that the word "trend" in fashion means a style or look that has its moment but is destined not to last.  I find it interesting, in light of this definition, that I have seen some form of the word "trendy" attached to animal prints, for um....YEARS! So, today, I am asking myself...What are the reasons why we love animal prints so much that we just can't seem to let them go? (Hint:  the five reasons listed below will all have one word in common, so keep reading if you are curious to know what it is!) 5 Reasons Why[...]
Finding Your "Momspiration" at The Mom Con {Giveaway}

Finding Your "Momspiration" at The Mom Con {Giveaway}

Last year at about this time, my amazing friend, blogger, and business partner, Stephanie Barnhart of Football Food and Motherhood, wrote a guest post for Project Motherhood and made a statement about motherhood that couldn't be more true. She said: "Motherhood. It has our name in it but it’s rarely ever about us." It doesn't get more real than that. But, as soon as we give birth, the word "mother" becomes this defining factor --a shield--that we sometimes fall victim to standing behind. Don't get me wrong, there are no feelings in the world that compare to being a mother and experiencing[...]

Every year at this time we are preparing for the chilly weather to get even colder. It almost seems like fall comes and then winter hits --boom--like a slap in the face! Whenever we are choosing our winter coats, the goal is always the same--to look cute, but stay warm. Last year when we shared our top 5 favorite winter coats for women, we searched through some fun trending styles that featured royal blues, over-sized silhouettes, and military style. While some things have changed this year, aspects still remain the same with winter coats for women. What's Trending in 2014 ? If[...]
Makeup Brushes 101: Specific Uses & Care {Giveaway}

Makeup Brushes 101: Specific Uses & Care {Giveaway}

A few weeks ago during fashion week, I had some time to kill between shows and having enough time to run back to my apartment and out again just wasn't happening, so what to do? I wandered into my nearest Sephora, of course! I mean--it's beyond easy to kill time there--I get lost in all the products! (Plus, I was able to do a little make-up touch up!) Anyways, I quickly found myself behind the makeup brush counter, staring blankly at all of the brushes--many of which I don't own. This raised many questions: What makeup brushes do I actually need?[...]
