Designer Eyeglasses have become the new "it" accessory to rock beyond a pair of shades. Fashionistas like designer Rachel Roy and actress from The New Girl, Zooey Deschanel show it's stylish to wear glasses and to skip contact lenses. I've purchased from Coastal.com numerous times not only because they sell brands like Derek Cardigan Eyeglasses that offer fab styles, but the prices are unbeatable! I still can't believe my first pair I ever bought on Coastal.com were FREE! Yes, you read that right, FREE! And, they always offer FREE options for your first purchase, or AMAZING discounts you can't say no to. You should follow Coastal.com on all of it's social media outlets and sign up for the emails to find out about all of their promos. I feel like every fashionista should have a variety of style glasses to go with their looks accordingly. It's like your sunglasses. You have different frames for different styles you wear.
Here are a few Derek Cardigan Eyeglasses that have caught my attention recently.
I love the color and the retro vibe of this style!
These seem really funky and I LOVE that! The clear just means it will go with everything.
These have a really interesting shape. It reminds me of a cross between a box and a cat eye.
I have these in a maroon color and love the ombre effect. Gives a classic style a ton of edge.
I LOVE the shape and the tortoise shell for this style! It's classic, but gives any look some edge.
I think I'm in LOVE!! These are the last pair I saw and they are amazing! Funky take on cat eye glasses---I like the larger style and tortoise shell design. And only $98, or eligible for 2 pair for $95! I told you they always have an amazing deal you can't say no to! Stay tuned for me rocking these:)
As you can tell from the styles I chose, Derek Cardigan can give your glasses options more fun and edge to add to your wardrobe.
Plus, I'm all about giving back, so I love that Coastal.com donates a pair of glasses to someone in need whenever a pair are purchased!

As a mom of three young kids, tummy time has turned into a time where my babies play on the floor (on their tummy:) to gain strength and skills to start crawling and then walking.
In fashion, I would have said pre-baby, tummy time was all of the decades that trends have been influenced by baring the tummy. Well, kind of:)
I'd say as far back as women in Indian baring their midriff while wearing a sari and still feeling covered.
Then, the 50's where just a little skin was showing and it still looked respectful.
I'd say the most "revealing" time when middrift's were out was in the 90's. I feel like that was more rebellious because pants were low and tops were high. It wasn't my favorite way to style baring the tummy.
Now, the style is back and we are doing it right. Taking styling cues from the 50's and I'd say marrying them with aspects from India and how they bare their midsection.
I think that this style is totally appropriate for a mother that it flatters their body and isn't showing "too much" skin. Thoughts?

They are usually expensive and boring...I saw one for $3.99 at Target and they go up to $19.99 for a set of 3.
This is the perfect towel to use to scrunch your curls.
Curly hair products:
Target has jumped on the curly hair bandwagon and offer a variety of options from inexpensive mass brands to exclusive, organic brands that specialize in curly hair and might be a little more expensive like Miss Jessie's (but work amazingly!).

As a mom who used to wear 4" heels everyday I realize that I need to be in more comfortable shoes that can take on my 3 kids:) With that in mind I'm not wearing sneakers or a basic pair of flip flops. Everything I wear still has to have style and that is why I'm excited to share Shoe Dazzle. A site that offers style and great price options and you can shop from the comfort of your home. Plus, my fave style icon/stylist, Rachel Zoe has teamed up with Shoe Dazzle to highlight styles she gets behind. Enough said.
Here are a few styles I think can punch up any look from a maxi dress to a basic jeans and tee ensemble. As a mom with twins under one it's a given that I can't wear statement jewelry unless I am open to pieces being broken. (Which has already happened a couple of times.) To avoid this happening forget the jewelry and let the shoes make the statement. If you are rushing and don't have time to create fun looks yet just stay with the classics that are always easy to put together.
Some other great accessories to add to your look for an easy update: straw fedora hat or a light weight scarf.
For those that are a little more daring. I was inspired by Khloe Kardashian, who I feel has the best mommy style! She wore a pair of print pants with a baseball style tee. Still comfy, but with a ton of trendy edge. I'd keep the pant in a cropped or legging style so you can still run after the kiddos:) The wide, pajama style are still comfy. But, you might trip going after the kids:)
