As over 95% of my clients have children, discovering products that are functional and stylish for mamas is of high priority. Whether it’s a comfortable flat, a no-fuss scarf, or in this case, the supreme carry-all, if it makes a mom’s life easier or saves a few minutes in the morning, in the car, or in a store, it’s worth it.
Enter the MZ Wallace Metro Tote. This bag came across my style radar when a client asked my advice regarding color preference*, and when the bag arrived, I could totally see why it’s the rage among multi-tasking moms.
For starters, the large size option is truly LARGE and can hold all your stuff, your child’s stuff, and probably your child too! It’s collapsable for easy air travel, and comes with 3 matching pouches of different sizes to hold anything from diapers, to snacks, to your wallet. Additional attributes include multiple interior pockets and availablity in 3 different sizes. Oh! And the price! The price is right.
Mom tested, stylist approved.
*When possible, always go with Camo cause it’s awesome; black patent leather is a respectable 2nd choice.
I’ve posted about Lululemon before (one of the very first of this blog actually), but I’ve never endorsed a specific product. Until now. Because I am so in love with these pants I’ve added an extra day of Crossfit every week just so I can wear them more!
This pant (the Wunder Under) is made of ‘Luxtreme’, which is the softest, silkiest fabric I’ve ever felt in my life. Available in a bunch of super fun prints, the original Wunder Under is a low-rise style; if you want a little more coverage, grab the Roll Down option. You’ll never go back.
Would you believe that the most important purchase for this new season costs $5?
Whether you’re a good girl like me (who stores my winter sweaters in moth ball filled plastic bins) or a bad girl (who shoves them somewhere in the back of your closet), most sweaters need some TLC around this time of year. Enter the sweater comb. Simply, this cheap little plastic device allows old sweaters to look like new by removing all ‘pillage’ (the unsightly side-effect of wearing cashmere and wool). Many prefer the modern convenience of the electric fabric shaver, but this one (pictured) works the best.
If you are still needing a pair of black heels*, this new style from Cole Haan is chic and comfortable and goes with a cocktail dress and skinny jeans. I know this because I styled two completely different outfits for a client’s weekend away using this pair in patent leather: one with a Rachel Zoe dress, the other with grey skinny jeans and a killer black blazer.
If you can wear a higher heel, they’re also available.
*How do you know if you need black heels? That’s simple: if you don’t already own a good pair, then the answer is ‘yes, you do’.
