Two In A Row

Now that I’m in my 30’s, there is a whole new set of designers that have captured my attention. I’m willing to spend a little bit more on more classic pieces that will stand the test of time. One such brand is The Row. The high-end designs of Mary Kate and Ashley have an effortless and uber-minimal style that resonates with cool girls all over the world. Fair warning that it’s very pricey, but if you can catch it on sale, I think it’s worth it. I was fortunate enough to get two pieces recently – both cream maxi dresses. One was a very minimal crepe t-shirt style dress, the other along-sleeved wool dress with a sexy slit down the front. 

I love the t-shirt dress for casual evenings, and the wool for a more bold outing. I paired my look with oversized sunglasses and layered chunky jewels. You’ll find me wearing these looks for family photos, date nights, and even client dinners (the short-sleeved option of course). Now I just have to keep my eyes open for more sales!

Minnie

Polka dots aren’t usually my go-to print, but when done right – they can be so whimsical and gorgeous. I instantly fell in love with this Monique Lhuillier number when I saw it online. Doesn’t it feel like this is what Minnie Mouse would wear if she went to a sophisticated cocktail party? 

I love the flocked polka dots, the girly tulle skirt, and the pretty velvet ribbon that drapes from the waist. I’d love to wear this to a Spring event, or rehearsal dinner! To finish my look and add a pop of color, I paired the dress with my pink satin Manolos and cat-eye Dior sunglasses. What about you, dolls? Are you a fan of polka dots?

Mi Golondrina Mommy & Me

I have to admit, one of the perks of having a little mini-me is the darling outfits for little girls. The sweet dresses, smocking and embroidery are all too cute to resist. And while Elle definitely has a wardrobe that rivals mine, I also love when we can have a Mommy & Me matching moment. It’s really fun to find brands that make adorable clothes that I like for myself, but aren’t too adult for my tiny tot. That’s why I was so excited when I realized one of my favorite brands, Mi Golondrina, also has the sweetest items for little ones. 

Last year I got ready for Spring and Summer with some classic blue and white dresses, and this year they’ve done it again with gorgeous pieces for the new season. Elle and I were excited to choose lavender looks which just invite thoughts of Spring finally arriving. The pastel hues are perfect for the season, Easter brunch and beyond. This year I’m loving the longer silhouette on the Olivia dress that looks stylish (but still comfortable and practical) while I chase around my mini-me. What makes these looks even more charming is the beautiful mission behind the brand and its founder. The brand is dedicated to uplifting local artisan communities and celebrating the founder’s Mexican heritage. I absolutely love the mission and how cultures and traditions can be passed from generation to generation – something I’m focused on with Elle. It just makes our matching moment even more special.
