Stylish Mamas

One of my greatest pet peeves is women who let themselves go after having a child, and then use that child as their excuse to constantly dress down. I've always found this to be a poor justification because having a child is a gift not a burden, and personal style is not something that should be lost just because you've become a mom. There is no reason to sacrifice womanhood for motherhood, because you can have both. Personal style is something that should shine through you everyday, whether you're wearing your favorite pair of jeans and sneakers, or a classy dress and heels. You can transform an everyday playground outfit into something so much more sophisticated just by adding a few finishing touches like some bracelets, a watch, a fedora, and a great bag. A woman should want to look and feel beautiful not only for her partner, or the world, but most importantly for herself.
Here are some stylish celebrity moms that are always the envy of the playground...

"Thanks Grandma!"

Remember those ghastly reindeer sweaters from grandma we used to pretend we loved on Christmas morning? Well, they're baaaaack... but this time that reindeer jacquard print has morphed it's way onto the runway and into some interesting new silhouettes. It made quite a splash on Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2010 runway in the form of sweaters, dresses, skirts, shorts, jumpsuits, scarves, and even boots...

I noticed that ZARA never fails to have some similar and more budget conscious options...

And I love how Veronica Beard worked her D&G scarf into this outfit for the September issue of VOGUE (not to mention those amazing $1100 Burberry boots that will torment my life until they're mine!)...

Maybe I'll get lucky this Christmas and score some reindeer gear, and please please please those boots! :)

BOOT-ylicious II (Boots for the Boys)

I realize this blog is, for the most part, directed towards a female audience BUT every boy could use a push in the fashionable direction as well. There's nothing sexier on a man (other than a tux, of course) than a blazer, scarf, and jeans tucked into a great pair of boots...

Boot season has arrived and I can finally indulge in my boot fetish without getting those "why are you wearing boots in 70 degree weather?" glares from completely unfashionable strangers. If you're looking for some chic autumn footwear, check out some of the new arrivals at ALDO for their latest trends...

FALL in love with ZARA

I have been obsessed with ZARA ever since my first fashion job with them in 2006. Their collections are always so on-point with today's trends, with new pieces making their way into stores weekly. The quality is always excellent, and most importantly it's affordable! Their new and improved website, which debuted earlier this month, now let's you shop online from the UK, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and Portugal. Hmmmm.. yet another plus to residing in Europe :)

Here are some of my favorite fall must-haves [military-inspired jackets and boots, camel/olive hues, fur vests, boyfriend trousers, and leopard accessories]... in ZARA stores now!
