Saturday Sweets

This one’s for all you workin’ mamas out there hustlin’ 40 hours a week – I feel ya! It’s Saturday – time to sleep in, sip your chai latte with leisure & catch up on the latest edition of Marie-Claire.. WRONG! Reality sets in and you realize you’re actually still on duty, but rather than shooting off emails & making sure you minimize your Instagram feed when your boss walks by, you’re having your hair pulled & being serenaded to the musical styling of Saturday Morning Mickey Mouse Club episodes.  But guess what – you’re one lucky lady! That little monkey tugging at your nighty just wants to have some good ol’ fashioned weekend fun witcha’!

Daisy & I are total ice cream junkies – combine that with a sunny San Francisco Day & we’re in heaven!  We love to spend our weekends skipping through the city soaking up all of the ‘mommy&me’ moments we have together!  Remember mommy’s – time flies, relish in every little sticky moment (and it sure doesn’t hurt to look funky fresh while doing it).

BLACK is the new black

When in doubt // Wear Black.

FullSizeRender (26)

Daisy & I are notorious for wearing all black.  One might say black is drab but we say black is fab!  Although our closets are packed with solids we love to add diversity by mixing different textures and fabrics all with our monochromatic color pallet.  Black is the surest solution to looking stylish & sleek on any day.  It’s one bold color that never goes out of style!

black is back & it's here to stay

Lacey Lady

If I had a nickle for every time I heard someone say “lace is for old ladies” I would be one very rich chick!  Hello people, stop associating lace with your grandmothers table cloths & start livin’! Yes yes, I’ve seen my share of outdated lace, however [if done right] lace can be the greatest asset in adding some flavor to your threads! I am loving the detail and the uniqueness of such a marvelous fabric, and Daisy is loving the fact that lace makes her feel like a princess (if only it were that easy..).

The other day Daisy & I discovered these revamped denim shorts and just about melted! See ya boring ol’ dungarees, hello lacey lady! We’re not saying we don’t love a good pair of jean shorts, but we are definitely saying yes honey to these denim-babies kicked up a notch with just a touch of lace!

feathers &frills

As we all know, fashion trends tend to come in cycles, and then recycle – some we love, some we love a little less, but all we are thrilled have existed in order to give us the freedom to mix & match as we please.  Naturally, retro headbands have made a roaring comeback but we are more than pleased that they have a bit of a spin now a days : we’re talking the flappers from the 20’s sat down with Pocahontas and decided “let’s do this!” FEATHER CROWNS. Yes puh-lease!

You all know my feeling on accessories, the more the merrier, so today we’re celebrating our latest wardrobe extras & showing you how to fluff up your look with the touch of a feather.

We decided to drop some versatility on you today by sharing 3 completely unique  ways to rock your feathers //

Stop, Drop.. & Vintage Shop

O M G – let me introduce you to every fashion gals love affair: Vintage Shopping.  The fabrics, the construction, the timeless silhouettes… Oo Wee!

One of mine & Daisy’s all time favorite weekend activities is hunting down vintage gold.  We have multiple favorite haunts in the city; Jeremy’s, Wasteland, Moon Zoom, Black & Brown – but our all time favorite bonanza is the Treasure Island Flea.  The fact that this little gem only comes around seasonally definitely contributes to its exclusive appeal, but it’s ‘never disappoints’ couture selection is what seals the deal for us every time!

Today Daisy & I spent our sunny Saturday sifting through the racks of furs, sequins, and endless jewels..

Springtime Vibes

Welcome back Spring! Oh how we’ve missed you..

Okay, first things first; Spring time survival kit: sassy strappy sandals, bold prints, frisky sun hats, & lots and lots of YELLOW.  Now that you have collected your April essentials, it’s time to grab your clutch { which should be packed with lip-gloss, your ‘in-case-of-emergency’ AMEX & gummy-snacks – okay that last part may be in reference to Daisy however I’m seriously considering carrying those around at all times regardless, yum! } – and let’s go dance in the sunshine! Spring is here and it’s never looked better!

[half] top knots & grunge chic

I have to admit – as a frantic, time-crunched, hardly-have-time-to-wash-my-own-hair mother of a toddler, I was needless to say, thrilled when the half top knot became part of the hairstyle rolodex.  This is one of my all time favorite ways to rock my hair & has quickly become one of Daisy’s best looks also.

As if adding the top knot to our style wasn’t enough we decided going grunge-chic was the icing on the cake!

The 90’s are back and we couldn’t be happier! Harem pants (let’s be honest here – they’re hammer pants & we love ’em), plaid & high tops! Although we have updated our vocab and now call this look grunge chic – Mommy still likes paying homage to her 90’s roots.  ….now stop! HAMMER TIME..  [okay this song hasn’t grown on Daisy yet, but she’s all about the look; thatta girl]

The boys department isn’t just for boys //

Shopping tip numero uno: (listen up guys & dolls!) boys clothes, accessories, shoes, etc., aren’t just for boys!!! So many of Daisy’s (and my) pieces have been discovered in the boys/men’s department! Don’t be afraid to jump out of your comfort zone and into the boys section.

 Daisy & I are notorious for blending departments when it comes to our wardrobe.

Mommy says if you’re feelin’ drab just throw on a swanky hat!  We think the best way to turn up an outfit can be with just the touch of a hat –  I am feeling those uptown funky vibes big time today!  [ & of course the shoe that ties it all together ]

Make a statement from head to toe. You’re not just wearing an outfit, you’re the present and your threads are the wrapping.. Do it up gals!

black || white

Sometimes the absence of color speaks louder than even the loudest crayon in the box! Mommy says black is classic & white is timeless.  Ain’t nothin wrong with a LBD // or in my case, a TTM ( tiny tuxedo moment) .
