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 Day celebrations 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.
I have an insane amount of respect for the trendy mama of today’s busy world.
While I was outfitted in athletic-wear at the local public library’s “Story Time”, I spotted Abnous and Winn. Week after week, Abnous, as if stepping off the pages of the trendiest Pinterest boards, toted in 2 year old Winn making dressing our babiekins as toddler trendsetters seem like a piece of cake.
My two boys were usually just covered in cake.
What do you love most about dressing your kiddos?
I have always viewed fashion as almost an art form. I never really cared about brands, but buying what stands out to me as something beautiful and unique. I love that the kids are like blank canvases; they can pull off just about anything! Cameron’s at the age where she’s starting to develop an opinion about what she wants to wear so it’s fun to see what she comes up with sometimes!
Favorite brands/ shoppes / designers?
Zara, Crewcuts, Gap, Antik Batik, Atsuyo Et Akiko, Thief & Bandit, H&M. My favorite line Ace & Jig now has a kids’ line!
