Toddler Style: Fall Mixing

There are so many fun fall pieces out there right now that make mixing and matching easy. I always want my girl to be wearing something that is easy to play in, climb in, run in, and easy to clean :) This sweater from Old Navy and joggers from Carters are just the right mix of play clothes and put together. Add a bow from Ellia May and your girl is all set for a day of fun!

Toddler Style: Layers for Party & Play

If you know me and my daughter Penelope, then you know that I love making outfits for her to wear. I have some strong opinions about what I do and don't like (surprise!) but also really love when kids clothes look like kids clothes. I really feel like I child should be comfortable and able to play in whatever they wear, and with great clothing lines at places like Target and Kohls, great online brands like Primary (solid colored basics, everything under $25!), and second hand options like ThredUp and Once Upon Child-it's easier than ever to find cute, affordable, practical options for your babies. It's so fun to mix and match looks for your kids and layering is an easy way to take dresses into fall. When I first saw this striped dress I knew it would be perfect for now and later with a simple long sleeve and tights.

Class Mom Style: Weekend Warrior

Feeling put-together and comfortable as you work your way through your weekend to-do list is all about taking your polished basics and pairing them together in a comfortable way. A flattering drapey-top paired with medium wash high-waist skinnies are the perfect pair for a mom on the go. Add a classic shaker cardi for warmth and trendy blush sneakers and you are ready for birthday parties, park visits, Target runs and everything in between.

Classic Mom Style- Styling a Classic Shift Dress for Fall

I have been post-baby, post-pregnancy long enough now that I feel comfortable doing a full closet clean-out, and boy did I need to do one. I have several classic, solid-colored, shift dresses that I purchased during my first job out-of-college. They are quality dresses that fit well and can be worn to work, a wedding, a funeral and everything in between. But I found myself not wearing them because my current office environment is a little more casual, a little less business. I decided  that if I am going to keep items like this in my closet, I need to wear them. Here is a great and easy way to make a classic shift dress more casual and less business, using things you probably already have in your wardrobe. 
Jean jacket + Booties = Perfect for Fall.

Classic Polished Mom Style

Booties are everywhere in all seasons it seems, but being six feet tall has put me on the hunt for a versatile pair that is flat and can be worn in a casual setting but also in a relaxed business casual/office setting. These Rocket Dog Booties are the perfect compromise and are budget friendly to boot (punny, Heather). And you can't go wrong with a chambray shirt dress or my favorite light as a feather, leather earrings from mom-entrepreneur: Nickel and Suede.

Classic Mom-on-the-Go Style

Everyday I find myself trying to look cute and put together without being uncomfortable or feeling too fussy. This look would be great for a family day out or even a trip to the park! Plenty of room for snacks in the backpack and pockets for all the little things your mini-me wants to bring along.
