Fashion Friday: Where I Shop For Henry

Sorry this is late- Henry’s nanny is out sick so I’m a little behind! A lot of you have asked me on Instagram to do another post about where I shop for Henry– so here you go, a big roundup of where I shop again and again for the little man.  Shopping for girls is easy (my ovaries shudder every time I see something baby girl that is leopard) but boys are a little harder, so I hope this helps!

Gap and Old Navy constantly leave packages by my door not only because their stuff in on trend and well made for the price, but they are ALWAYS having a sale (like right now, 35% off everything).  They have total classics too, like the cable sweater below that I bought when it was on clearance last spring in every size- he’ll probably have one for every year until he goes to college).

Fashion Friday: Welcome M. Gemi!

Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 3.48.35 PM

I’m happy to share a fabulous company with you guys today that is bringing a new angle to the shoe game (which we all like to play, right?) M.Gemi (who also happens to be based in my hometown of Boston) is named after one of the founding members, Maria Gangemi, a longtime devotee of Italian craftsmanship and artistry. Growing up in Sicily, Maria learned the luxury footwear trade from the best in the business. She recalls a time when she would wander Italy’s cobblestone streets and discover goods created with the most exacting attention to design and quality. Each week, boutiques would display new, limited-edition shoes handmade by neighboring shoemakers. They were always fresh, always rare, and always reasonably priced.

Fashion Friday: Fave Recent Purchases

A simple Fashion Friday since I’m on vacation and about to go up to the top of a mountain to have waffles (yup, for real!) Just some items I’ve picked up lately that I’m loving (and one I am lusting after!) Have a great weekend everyone!

  1.  Andrew got me this great Cuyana tote for my birthday and I love the grey color and the fact that it’s logo-less and big enough for all my (and Henry’s) crap (plus a front pocket!)
  2. Picked these great skinny cargo style pants up for my trip- stretchy, comfy and a great fit.
  3. Two fave new beauty finds: Kate Somerville face wash (heavenly smell) and Bumble Surf Spray Foam (a combo of a light mousse and sea salt spray- awesome for volume and beachy air dried waves)
  4. These are my comfy, killer new leopard loafers for fall from Kate Spade. Because DUH.
  5. Totally random sweater vest I happened to just try on and LOVE! Great for fall with fitted long sleeve tee, boots and jeans.
  6. Love Les Bon Bons earrings but can’t stomach the price? These are a fraction of the cost and the same look.
  7. These are J.Crew’s best selling new pant that is perfect for summer with a tee or tank and sandals or for fall with flats and a cute sweater!
  8. DREAM FALL SHOE (wish I could buy): Prada’s suede bow flat. So amazing in person.
  9. Soft, light jammies in a perfect preppy stripe.

Fashion Friday: Workout Motivation

I’ve decided it’s about time to stop using the “but I JUST had a baby” excuse as to why I’ve been so lazy about working out.  Henry is almost 9 months old and I’m just about done weaning (running/jumping with nursing boobs is NO fun- also one of my excuses) so it’s time to get back into a healthy routine.  Not necessarily for aesthetic reasons, but more for the mental benefits and just feeling healthy.  I’ve found that it can be too time consuming to get to the gym (time is precious when you are working and have a nanny on the clock), so I’m trying out some workout apps (Sweat with Kayla) and YouTube videos (Tone It Up) so I can workout at home (or on the road).  If you have any YOU love, please leave a comment so I (and other readers) can check out various workouts!  To help motivate myself to get moving, I plan to treat myself to a new workout outfit- so here are some cute ones I pulled together for various activities!

Fashion Friday: Buy Now, Wear Later

While I can’t even begin to deal with the fact that stores are carrying Halloween (and even some CHRISTMAS) merchandise in July, I am excited for fall. By far my favorite season for numerous reasons- sweaters, hot coffee, fires, cool air, Henry’s FIRST BIRTHDAY (what?!?!)- I still respect summer and hate to rush it. BUT, with fall clothing making its way onto the racks, it’s a good time to buy things that can not only be worn in the fall, but now as well! Getting two seasons out of clothing is fabulous financially, and here are some examples of how to do it:

Lingerie inspired tops and dresses will be hot for fall, but are also perfect for hot weather NOW.  Wear alone with bohemian accessories in the heat, and then layer with cozy sweaters and boots come October!

Now: shorts // earrings // necklace // sandals
