PetitePARADE has partnered with The New York Foundling to create petiteSHOP: A Children’s Apparel and Accessories Charity Pop-Up supporting one of the most respected non-profit organizations in NYC raising awareness for National Foster Care Month.
I am honored to share with you some students from The Foundling’s Haven Academy helping petiteSHOP to raise awareness for this important cause by having fun in front of the camera. Haven Academy is the first School in the Nation specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of students in the child welfare system. The New York Foundling believes that all children have the right to grow up in loving and healthy environments that provide the foundations for success.
If you are in NYC, visit PetiteSHOP pop-up to shop for a cause and support The Foundling: at 27 Christopher Street at Waverly Place on Friday, May 1st through Sunday, May 17th for long weekends (Thursday – Sunday from 11am-7pm).

I’m lucky enough to experience my third Mother’s Day this year, this time with the addition of a new little munchkin! While my boys usually gift me with a beautiful—let’s call it “abstract”—handmade card, some of you out there might be looking for something more accustomed for the mom in your life! Here are some things that will surely brighten up her day and help say thanks for all she does.
Credits // 1. Succulent Cell Planter – Succulents are easy to maintain and liven up any space, these cell planters are a beautiful complement to an already charming plant | 2. Headphones – A little melodic therapy helps anyone relax and these rose gold headphones do so in such style | 3. Liquorice – Send a little love from Copenhagen with a Danish favourite, Lakrids by Johan Bülow quite literally sweeten any deal | 4. Wylden – Delicately handmade in Vancouver, Canada, Wylden’s silver and gold jewellery are simply lovely pieces for everyday wear | 5. Cereal Magazine – Publishing isn’t dead and Cereal magazine is a great example of that. Easy to digest, its pages are filled with captivating imagery and thoughtful words | 6. Birkenstock Arizona – A true classic, Birkenstock sandals are the ultimate marriage between style and practicality—an essential for every mom’s summer wardrobe
In several countries, Mother’s Day is celebrated in the month of May and I look forward to honoring all the mommies that I respect and admire who greatly deserve a day to be spoiled. My favorite Mother’s days are spent with my boys having breakfast in bed (made by my husband – of course) or having brunch at our favorite restaurant followed by kicking a soccer ball and chasing butterflies in the park. I also like to match my son by wearing similar or same graphic tees for a great photo opportunity – say cheese! I especially think it is sweet when moms and daughters dress in similar fashions – I love the “Mommy & Me” look and with so many cool designers also designing children’s wear it is easier now than ever to look hip and cool and just like your little mini me.
