Style: Mother / Daughter Jumpsuits

A.K.A. Jumpsuits for Me and E

This is a little bit ridiculous, but in the best way, right? Mother/daughter jumpsuits, coordinating in a blush and marsala palette. Pink ruffles on the little jumpsuit, picked up by pink scallops on the wallet! An animal purse and animal print pumps!

I’ll show myself out.

Style: All Aflutter

I did a segment this morning on a Chicago morning show, You & Me (live!), discussing my Bright Friday partnership with Glade®, showing a few handmade gift tag ideas (more on that to come soon), and talking cookie swaps. Naturally, I needed to wear a bright pink dress with fluttery sleeves so that I could gesticulate wildly with a flourish.

Anyway. Style post! That dress!

  2. Flutter-Sleeve Dress (in Pink or Navy), Banana Republic

    My Kate Spade necklace is no longer available, and I came across this one by Marni while looking for an alternative. Pricey, but super cool.

  6. Gold Double Ring, Madewell

  7. Everyday Opaque Black Tights, Nordstrom

  8. Dolce Vita Hastings Booties, Zappos

Velma’s Turtleneck Sweater

I had been looking for a new sweater for fall and winter: something soft, warm, and oversized for maximum coziness. Machine washable too, if possible (because: baby). I took Calvin out with me for my sweater quest and I tried on many close-but-not-quite options. Ah, until I found this one in mustard yellow. Flattering shape! Great color! Throw it in the wash! On sale for $35!

I was feeling pretty cute when I put it on the next morning. I wore a silk top beneath with its shirttail hem peeking out, my favorite cropped skinny pants, patent oxfords, and of course, my glasses. I even had time to put a little makeup on before heading out to walk the kids to school. Look out, world! Stylish mom, comin’ through!

  4. Relaxed Turtleneck Sweater, Loft
