The Transitional Season

Posted on by

Despite our brief encounter with 80 degree temps this week, its finally starting to feel like fall in New York City. The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and there is so much to look forward to. The kids are getting ready for Halloween, and before we know it we’ll be brining a turkey, then shopping amongst the masses for holiday time. With all that, my most favorite part about this time of year are the fall fashions. Wearing light layers are just so refreshing as opposed to getting all bundled in winter jackets.

I am coming off a major closet over-haul, the first cleansing of its type since having kids. It was funny to cull through the pregnancy, right after pregnancy, and almost into my size garments stuffed in my closet. I purged and donated so much, leaving a clean slate for new fall fashions. Rack Room Shoes has been a go-to for my entire family for sometime now, because they offer stylish shoes for all occasions at reasonable prices. When I ordered from them last week, I focused styles just for me, because this mama deserves a few new pairs of shoes!


There were so many great styles, I seriously couldn’t decide which to get, so my cart was overflowing. I thought about my fall clothes and came up with these three styles, that I know will work for fall and beyond. First, these Franco Fortini Ella Booties! I love anything fringe nowadays, and these side tassels work for dressing up or down. Plus, with a 3 inch heel, I cannot tell you how comfortable they are.

I’ve always gone back and forth about getting an over-the-knee boot. I wanted something that wasn’t too high, with a smaller type of heel for that casual look. These Report Fisher Knee High Boots are crafted with a soft made liner and a cushioned insole, so you’ll want to wear them all day every day. And the best part, they are on sale right now, so I scored.

Next, for something a little dressier, which can be worn will all my long dresses, especially for work functions. I fell in love with these Limelight Kendra suede bootie. The zipper detailing is my absolute favorite, and I bet they will be my most worn shoe all season long.


There’s nothing like a closet chuck full of new gear. Gosh I love fall! Would love to hear some of your favorite styles from Rack Room Shoes!

Sunday Styles: Wild Things

Posted on by

Animal Prints have somehow made their way onto tons of my childrens’ clothing. I always seem to gravitate towards styles with prints when shopping, and the kids always get a kick out of wearing a cool cheetah, or funky animal design. IMG_4644

When H&M recently intorduced their Conscious World Wildlife Collection, I ran to stock up. Sharing the common vision of a sustainable future, H&M and World Wildlife Fund have partnered to collaborate on a children’s collection, to inspire people all over the world to care for our planet. 10% of all sales will go towards WWF, in helping them conserve endangered species. It highlights H&M’s larger partnership with WWF, in the fight to raise awareness of water conservation and climate change, both of which affect endangered species such as the tiger, pandas, polar bears, and snow leopards.


The collection is made with organic cotton and features realistic prints of iconic endangered animals. Animal prints such as the tiger, panda, snow leopard, polar bear and the finless porpoise, that are facing environmental threats including habitat loss, water pollution and the impact of climate change.

The collection ranges in size newborn to size 14, and styles include long sleeve sweaters, T-shirts, dresses, tights, trousers and pajamas. The neutral color palette of beige, grey and off-white with accents of blue, somewhat portrays these featured species. Select pieces also include inspiring messages like “roar for wildlife,” “protect my habitat” or “let’s go wild,” to engage parents and kids in helping to support and raise awareness.

My kids’ wardrobe is stacked with H&M gear, and I am a huge fan of their many collabs with their line. I enjoyed having the conversation with the kids about the prints, and the story behind them. They are designing clothing to help the future of our children.

Disney For Halloween

Posted on by

The girls are all about playing dress up. It’s probably one of their most favorite things to do, so you can bet anytime we home, they have on some crazy outfit. Twirly dresses, sparkle crowns, chef coats, little heeled shoes, and the occasional lipstick, these are the memories that forge their relationship for life. I could watch them play for hours, just listening to their high pitched voices, acting out imaginary scenarios in sheer excitement.

A brand that has become a staple in their dress-up wardrobe is Little Gloriana. Our (and I say our because I totally swoon our these twirly girl dresses too) obsession started when they released an Elsa inspired dress, during the Frozen craze. Siella wore that dress for weeks on end. Little Gloriana even made matching mini me dresses, for their baby dolls.

As the seasons passed, Little Gloriana introduced an entire Princess Collection. For our first trip to Disney Land two years ago, I picked up the Little Mermaid and Aurora dresses for the girls.

When we booked Disney World the following year (posts here and here), the girls went as Belle, Cinderella, and Rapunzel. I cannot tell you how many times we were stopped at Magic Kingdom, by people admiring their outfits. They were comfortable for the girls to wear on rides all day long, on either warm or cool days.


When I finally had the opportunity to meet Gloriana, the designer behind this mastermind brand, I told her the girls has some suggestions on a few more princesses that weren’t in the collection – Minnie Mouse and Snow White.

I can’t tell you how stoked I was, when Gloriana emailed to let me know that she had made these dresses! The girls went bananas when the dresses arrived and just like all the others, she made mini me versions for their baby dolls.

If your little one is looking for a Disney inspired Halloween costume, you have to check out Little Gloriana. These dresses are so well made that they will last well beyond October 31st.

But honestly, I think we need to plan another trip to Disney, so they can rock these new characters.
