How My Style Has Changed Since I Became A Mom

Christian Louboutin Rainbow Glitter Disco 70s Ankle Boots

While you won’t find me in the much-memed “mom outfit” of leggings and a sweatshirt unless I’m at the gym, my style has subtly changed since having children. I hadn’t thought too much about this until I was previewing the Saks shoe sale the other day via text (so Xilennial) and my homegirl Marla sent me a pic of a pair of rainbow glitter Christian Louboutin So Kate’s. “Maybe in my twenties!” I wrote back. They were so me, that…

She told us last night that her mission is to spread joy and love and feminism, and there is so much more we could learn from this strong, talented, woman. Here are 5 life lessons…

8 Things I Learned In 8 Years Of Marriage

8 Things I Learned In 8 Years Of Marriage

Today is my eight year wedding anniversary, and I realized at the beginning of the summer that I’ve been coupled with my husband Bryan for 13 years. We fell in love in 2006, became engaged in 2009, and married in 2011. In the last few years, we experienced a crash course in adulting: we moved to three different states, became parents, bought and renovated our first house, and had two more children. It has been a period of enormous growth…

Friday Finds

Raga Waiola Halter Maxi

This week brought us some exciting fashion news, I found not one but two pairs of perfect high waisted jeans, and a show I’ve been rooting for has proven it will not disappoint (no, its not Handmaids). Also, my daughter turned five months old and she has started yelling. She’s either imitating her brothers or letting us know she already wants to be heard. The Friday finds:…

What Is In My Hospital Bag Third Time Around

Forever 21 Faux Fur Hooded Jacket

I just realized that I should get around to packing my hospital bag now that I am approaching 36 weeks, so I thought I would share what made the cut. I didn’t really know what to pack the first time around, or for my second trip to the labor and delivery floor since I had a scheduled c-section and had no idea what to expect. Now that I’ve had a c-section at the same hospital, here is what is in…

Nesting Is Real

Gender Neutral Safari Nursery

It took me three pregnancies to realize it, but nesting is real. The first time around, I painted the second bedroom of our East Village rental with low VOC paint in one day and then slowly furnished and decorated Bear’s nursery over the course of 5 or 6 months. When I found out I was pregnant with my second, I bought a new bassinet and a second crib that converted to a full bed and had it built in a…
