Fashion Friday – Winter, Family-style

As a former east coaster, I have LOTS of experience with cold. And the way that I used to combat the cold was to bundle up with a hoodie, a  water-proof, wind-proof ski coat over that, gloves, a hat, a scarf wrapped all the way up to my eyes sometimes and big snow boots. And all of those items didn’t necessary match either. Not exactly a fashion statement, right?

Well leave it to Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady to manage to do cold-weather in style. Check out this fashion-forward family out and about in the cold Boston Winter. Gorgeous coat and scarf? Check. Matching sunglasses and boots? Check. Super cute baby decked our in adorable winter sweater? Check Check. Perfect Winter style in my book!

Fashion Friday – Celebrity Mommy Style

Fashion never came that easy for me. Literally as far back as I can remember, I was wearing mismatched socks or pants that didn’t necessarily “go” with my shirt. Once I hit my teenage years, though, I started looking to others for “inspiration”, sometimes from friends, sometimes from celebrities or fashion magazines, which led to  more than a few fashion missteps – trends that I thought were cool, but now in hindsight, definitely were not.

Now that I’m someone’s Mom, it’s a bit of a conundrum– I know its important to me to look the part of a cool mom (at least once my girl starts going to school), but I’m SO SO busy, I don’t really have time to think about it. Kind of a dilemma right? And then I see celeb moms who just get it right, and make it look effortless, which makes me think- “I could do that… I could be that well put together, if I just planned a little bit”.  Well, this year I’m really going to try it.

Gwen Stefani Mommy StyleSo who’s going to be my celeb mom inspiration? There really are many to choose from. There’s Gwen Stefani- who has managed to remain the coolest chick around, even after two babies. She’s a rockstar in real life, and always looks the part- even when hanging with her kiddos at the park. As much as I wish I was that cool though, I’m not sure I could pull that off even with all the time in the world to plan.

Then there’s Katie Holmes, who manages to look sophisticated in literally every picture I’ve seen of her– perfectly tailored designer fashions, always in-season.

The more I think about it, I think that the celeb Mom style that would work the best for me, at least some of the time anyway, would be Jennifer Garner, or Jessica Alba. Always appropriate for the occasion, always well-put-together, even when going casual, always classic and classy. And, they look comfortable– which to me, is most important. Yes- I’ve settled on it then. And there’s my New Year’s resolution. To be as well put together as a celeb mom, 50% of the time… and to train for a 5K.

What’s your Mommy style? Do you have a favorite celebrity who inspires you, or do you do your own thing?

Fashion Friday – Dressing Baby for the Holidays

For many families, the holidays are one of the only times of the year that everyone gets together. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and all- which means LOTS of picture-taking. This can put lots of pressure on parents to dress those kiddos to impress, since the photos that are taken over the holidays last a lifetime.

Baby Holiday OutfitsFor our little one’s first holiday, we went with a baby Santa outfit, which of course  had everyone cooing.  This year, we’re going with a silver and plum party dress. Everyone is dressed pretty casually at our place for the holidays, but I’ve seen some families really dress up as well.

Some of my favorite celebrity-baby looks of the season have been the red sweater jumper on Eric Church’s son and those dashing suits on the Beckham boys.

How are you dressing your princes and princesses for this year’s family gatherings?

Fashion Friday – Dressing Your Bump for Holiday Parties

Linda Caredllini Black Dress Baby BumpI really do believe there’s nothing more beautiful than an expectant mom. That’s just as true when she’s wearing comfy, casual and cute maternity fashions as when she’s glamming it up. For this Fashion Friday- we want to know how you’re dressing your baby bump this holiday season. Are you keeping it casual or going all out?

Personally, I kept it casual most of the time while I was in my last trimester.  Since I was due in November, I didn’t have any holiday parties to attend while pregnant. The little black dress I saw Linda Cardellini wear last week made me wish I had though! What a perfect way to show off her baby bump- check out the article on people.com.

So ladies- what are your go-to holiday outfits going to be?
