Style Diary: 1 Yellow JCrew Skirt 3 Ways

I’m not normally a fan of yellow but somehow this sunny yellow JCrew skirt spoke to me.  And it’s refreshingly versatile.  Pair it with a neutral like I did in the first picture below and immediately it helps tone down the outfit.  (Lipstick scarf, lace top by Ellen Tracy, flats from JCpenney).

Or wear it with black and white and a pop of color.  (Zara shoes, Chanel purse, Bettes B, TJMaxx hat)

For work, I might wear it with my metallic and black Zara blazer as shown below. Spiked necklace is from TJMaxx and the gold studded tank is from Century 21.  P urse is Chanel and heels are Dolce Vita from Saks.

Fab Kids: Mommy and Me Fashions

I hope you moms out there had a very happy mother’s day.  Mine was pretty perfect with a beautiful brunch outdoors by Rockefeller Center, a stroll through Saks and midtown to enjoy the amazing weather and church with my honey and little one.  Here we are imitating the elephant we found on the pillow and then walking through Rockefeller Center afterwards.  She can imitate a handful of animals already at just 14months old (as well as identify 16 body parts and so much more)!  I’m a proud mommy.

As you can see, Juliet and I shamelessly match one another.   I’ve been a little obsessed lately with matchy matchy mini-mes thanks to my fashionable mommy friends on Instagram.  They inspire me!  See below for a quick sample!

Style Diary: Little Black Dress

There’s a reason I haven’t written a style diary post in months.  As a new mom with a 2month old, the only thing I accessorize with these days is a burp cloth.  Dressing up to me now simply means actually putting on a bra.  I now understand why moms spend so much time in Juicy sweatpants.  I can barely get out of my PJs on most days!  You may find this weird coming from such a fashion-obsessed blogger like me but when you’re so sleep deprived and forced to try and take naps whenever the baby is down, staying in your PJs not only makes it easier to jump into bed at all times of the day but it also saves time.  And as any mom with a newborn knows, time is of the essence!

Currently, I have a rare and precious moment to myself now that baby is taking her nighttime nap.  And I feel thankful to be able to pinterest and fantasize about wearing all these little black dresses.  They’re beautiful, aren’t they?

At 8 weeks post c-section, I have 8lbs to lose before I can fit back into my own LBDs.  Not bad for not having had a moment to work out I guess and totally worth the sweet, precious gift I’ve been given!
