Get your dancing shoes out...

Bravo to fellow blogger Kelly Hampton for pointing out the small things in life. Check out her post on "Having it All." An inspiration to all mommies to get their dancing shoes out, call their girls, and get out for a night on the town.

No more Mom Jeans...

In fact I am sick of jeans all together.
It is the classic mom get up, jeans, ballet flats, a striped tee shirt, and a summer scarf. AHHH! Even I can't escape the monogamy some times. I am married to these skinny jeans, and I can't seem to find a "pant boyfriend."
I think the dirty streets of NYC cause an even greater dependancy on the mom jean. I don't want to wear my summer dresses on the subway in fear that the seat might stick to me like glue (and I'd be actually relieved if it was glue), and showing my undies at the playground is not exactly going to make me any new friends.
So I've been researching some other options. First, the Skinny Cargo Pant; good choice, a close relative to the skinny jean. Second, the Harem Pant; trendy option and surprisingly flattering, unfortunately your husband might try to change your diaper rather than your baby's. Third, Drawstring Slouchy Silky Pant; great to wear out for dinner, but hard to disguise the pizza sauce.
Here are some of the picks of the week, so get our of your rut and cheat on those boyfriend jeans with a hot pant.

I wear my Sunglasses at night...

Sunglasses are sometimes the only way a mom can pull that glamour girl look together. So having the perfect pair to cover those under eye circles and distract from your unwashed coif are essential. I believe that BIG and BOLD is the way to go. You can wear those tattered sweats and go for the celeb walk-of-shame look, or a pair with a plain black dress to channel your Upper West Side Gossip Girl. With a great air of shades you can get away with just about anything. You can hide from the mom that's always pestering you about your choices in organic brand baby food, or the neighbor who's trying to get you to join the community gardening club.

Here are a couple pairs that I found from New Zealand designer Karen Walker (the black and the red) at PS: she also has a great line of nautical jewelry and dresses!

I also found a pair of Roger Vivier Tortoise glasses that are sure to get you into the hottest beach clubs in the Hampton's.

Viva La Glam Darlings!

Cool Orthopedics

Yes, yes, it's an oxymoron.

Apparently, Park Slope style is good for something...they know what's comfortable. I've come across the Worishofer buckle wedge sandals at a few stores in my neighborhood. At first I was hesitant, but after walking way too many blocks in my Lanvin flats I thought I should give them a try.

They are come in a variety of colors both bold and neutral. They also have an amazing cushion for bouncing that baby around town while giving you an extra couple inches in height. They're no Louboutin's, but they are about 60 bucks and won't mess up your pedicure.

You can get them in Red at

Mommy and Me

Happy Hot Mama's Day you fabulous ladies! A little something for you and your bebe. I have a little boy, but if I had a little princess to dress I would immediately purchase these adorable tunics by Leaves of Grass. Then, I would matchy-matchy ourselves all around town on Sunday. The adult versions are full of detail, with unique embroidery, and funky color combinations. Pair with cut-offs and head off to lunch with the kiddies or check out one of their dresses for a summer shower.

Jumper…Romper? Whatev, it’s a great mom’s outfit.

I was hesitant to participate in the jumper phenomena. I was a little skeptical that it wasn't age appropriate. I mean, I remember my mama putting me in them when I was like three. I wasn’t even unsure that they were actually for real. I would look at them online and think… is this a joke? Is this designer’s guilds way of making a mockery of us followers of fashion. I could picture Donatella and Donna laughing like two sorcerers staring into a which’s caldron, images of us common folk in one piece patterned get-ups like preschoolers.

But eventually, I too was tempted by their spell and purchased a silk short romper at Lilly P’s while on vacation. Then when the temperature hit 90 yesterday I decided that it was time to take that puppy out for a walk through the Park. My son was being a typical two year old, barely patient enough for me to put one leg in. But all I had to do was get two legs in and tie the pretty little straps into bows. Presto! I had an instant outfit. Foolish or not this was starting to be a good day.

Then we get to the Prospect Park Playground, it’s hot and sticky. My son insists on getting in the sandbox (filled with bugs and dirt…not sand), making me show him that the slide is not scary by sliding down myself, and climbing the monkey bars. To my amazement, my jumper is unharmed, and I have saved myself the embarrassment of exposing myself like Paris and Brittany.

I was able to stay in my outfit through the playground, cleaning the house, and throwing a BBQ party! Amazing. Highly recommended, even if I feel like I should be the one in the stroller rather than the one pushing it.
