As a mom of two girls I'm often on the lookout for the best children's boutiques, and when I found Lilattoosh Baby in Miami I fell in love!  They carry clothing for both boys and girls that is so on-trend, and everything is just so comfy.  With the launch of their new website I thought it was about time I sat down with the owner for a little Q & A: 1. Do you have a background in fashion? I have a degree in Fashion Merchandising & Design from Drexel University (and did a year at FIT in NYC), worked in showrooms...

As a huge fan of Baby Steps and Mish, I wanted to interview its founder, and I was so excited when she agreed! Vivian is an absolute force to be reckoned with, and a true girl boss. Read on to learn all about her journey to starting one of my favorite children’s companies. 1.What made you start the company? 39 years ago I had a toddler who kept slipping on my wooden floors. I went from store to store looking for something she could wear besides shoes that would keep her from slipping and sliding. No luck. I saw a void in...

I remember being so overwhelmed when I was pregnant, with my daughter Charlie, about what to buy before she arrived. How many pairs of footie pajamas did I need, how many gowns, what if I didn’t have enough towels? The list went on and on. I was so excited when I found out that Denny’s Fashion, Style, For All had a layette specialist who could answer all of these questions! I simply called the store, made an appointment, and went in to get my never-ending list of questions answered. Being a soon-to-be second time mom , I...

Samantha Handler is only 22 years old, and she is already the boss of her own company! After recently graduating from the University of Maryland, she decided to use her love for modern art as well as her passion for design, to build a custom design company in NYC. Within a short period of time she gained notoriety, and reached local and national success. But how did it all begin? About five years ago, Samantha hand-painted a pair of University of Maryland sneakers for a friend, and then she was quickly inundated with requests to make more! With all of the...

Since the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is quickly approaching I wanted to share a few of my favorite things!  As a reminder it begins July 20th, and it goes through August 5th.  You do, however, have the ability to start shopping 8 days earlier if you are a Nordstrom cardholder.  Additionally, if you are a level 4 member you can start shopping as early as July 11th!  Don't forget triple points can be used during the sale. First, I want to tell you about the 1901 Balloon Sleeve Bow Neck Blouse.  It is one of those pieces that you will keep asking...

I am really excited to announce that nine of my blogger girls and I are doing a Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway in honor of the Anniversary Sale!  The gift card is going to be in the amount of $200!

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is approaching, and I wanted to provide you with a guide to navigate it.  It begins July 20th and goes through August 5th, however if you are a Nordstrom cardholder you have the ability to start shopping 8 days earlier!  Also, if you are a level 4 member you can start shopping as early as July 11th!  You can also use triple points during the sale. One of the greatest parts about the sale is that all of the pieces are new merchandise!  That's right.  I said NEW!  It is the pre fall and winter items, and...

I’ve always been drawn to stripes, and veered away from polka dots.  For some reason they always look so busy hanging on the rack, and I don’t think they will look right on.  That was until I found this Three Dots Voile Maxi Dress!  Something about it just screamed, “Try me on!”  I guess you can say it was love at first sight-or dot.  The greatest part about it was that I knew I could wear it in the day with a sandal or at night with a wedge or heel.  Having a toddler I don’t always have time to do...

Happy July 4th!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday surrounded by family and friends.  It feels a bit strange celebrating on a Wednesday this year! Am I right?!  I'm really excited to tell you about my Free People Color My World Floral jumpsuit that I'm rocking to represent the day!  It is quite possibly my favorite jumpsuit I've ever gotten because it is so comfy.  It is currently 40% off at Nordstrom!  It comes in multiple colors and looks amazing with a wedge, sandals, or flats.  Anything that easily transitions from day to night is a win in...

Although I am usually all about the steal, it is also important to invest in really good pieces.  Nothing compares right now, in my opinion, to LoveShackFancy. Their garments are the embodiment of feminine and ethereal, and they are perfect for the summer. Their fabrics are light and airy, and anytime I put one of their dresses on I instantly feel girlie and confident. I also love taking their items on vacation with me because they pack really well.  I never had to worry about ironing them when I land-which is always a plus!  My favorite part about LoveShackFancy is that anytime I see...

I am loving floral skirts with sneakers or espadrilles for the summer.  Some of my favorites have been the tiered skirts with smocking from H&M.  My two most recent picks have been only $17.99 (shown above).  I love pairing them with a basic white Rag and Bone tee, or even the simple white jersey tank from H&M which are only $5.99! The greatest part about wearing a little skirt in the summer is that it becomes so easy to transition into a night look.  Just throw on an espadrille (my favs are this Castaner pair from Shopbop.com), and you are ready to...

Getting ready for the 4th of July! I love a holiday with a good color theme! It is always so fun to be matching with my girl, and these heart sunnies are perfect for a fun pool day on the holiday! Mine come in a variety of colors and are less than $10, and Charlie’s are from Elegant Child and only $14!  I also love rocking one piece bathing suits as a mom (they are easier to run after Charlie in), and this red one will be perfect for our 4th pool party. The best part? It is less than $21 dollars!...
