Momkins//An Ode to the White Shirt

Guest post by Anna Whitworth.

Its crispiness and simplicity never cease to deliver, be it a work meeting, project presentation, dinner with the in-laws or Saturday’s brunch with the girlfriends, a white shirt will always make you look good. I love them, I cannot stop buying them and I own quite a few of them. They are first runner-up to the white t-shirts as far as quantity goes. At first, I was not always such a fan, I remember the days back in elementary school when we had to wear a white button-up to every school ceremony, a sea of student-penguins is what we were. I think that is when my rebellious (or defiant as I like to call it) soul started resenting the white stiffness of the perceived uniform.
But now as I matured a bit, being in the prime of my youth (hey it is all in one’s head, says my 69 year old father- thriving 21 at heart) I perceive them as an A plus answer to every dressing-up test question one may have for me! Need something for a Friday night cocktails–white shirt and leather (if you are poor like me pleather) pants and heals are a perfect combo (additional bonus if they have ultraviolet lights in da house, I tested and nothing draws more smiles and fist bumps than half of you glowing in the dark). Need something for a quick lunch with your girlfriends on a Sunday afternoon? White button-up and a pair of boyfriend jeans will do! I promise that you will look like you got this, effortlessly and with this surprising, duh-kind of wow-factor. So lets uniform unite, white button-ups we go!

There are some books so sweet, they can bring tears to your eyes. In rhyming whimsy with steadfast storytelling, “An Awesome Book“ by Dallas Clayton, is an uplifting and touching one that helps you and your little remember “to dream a dream as big as big could ever dream to be.” A very important message that we as adults, often forget. What started out as a project inspired by Clayton’s own son, has now turned into a series of fantastical books all of which have an air of thoughtful playfulness, reminiscent of classics like Dr. Seuss and Shel Silvertein. These books are a fun read with heartwarming sentiments that truly resonate.
An interactive online version of “An Awesome Book” is available at www.veryawesomeworld.com in its entirety read aloud by Clayton along with his other titles like “Make Magic! Do Good!” and “It’s Never Too Late” for purchase on Amazon.

Lil' Stylekins // 90's Child

I guess because I grew up in the 90′s I will always have a special place in my heart for its style. It takes me back to such a special time in my childhood growing up. Its comeback these last few seasons have put me in a constant state of nostalgia and I have seriously enjoyed dressing up both my kids in old school looks. The 90′s grunge look in particular is probably one of my favorites . I wanted to take that style but introduce it to Spring. I decided to switch up the usual black color palette to an all white one, since that trend transitioned so beautifully right into SS15, but kept all the familiar elements such as the round glasses, plaid & those classic shredded jeans. 90's Child90's Child90's Child90's Child90's Child90's Child
