Nova Harley Diaper Bags

 

Meet the Nova Harley Brisbane Diaper Bag

So, I might not have a little baby anymore (I’m holding back tears as I write this), but I still need a good bag that’s roomy and provides organization for my out and about family. And, like most moms, I don’t want to sacrifice style when it comes to diaper bags. I’m obsessed with this Nova Harley Brisbane diaper bag. Not only is it gorgeous, perfect for summer, and made with real premium leather cowhide, but it’s one of the roomiest diaper bags with the most organization I’ve ever seen.

Look Inside: Nova Harley Brisbane Diaper BagFor an afternoon of errands followed by swimming and dinner at Grandma’s house, this is what I need to pack for myself and my two little girls. As you can see, I could fit everything we needed for an entire afternoon and evening out in one bag… and without it looking too stuffed.

BEST of Summer HATS

Best Floppy Hats for Summer

You cannot survive Summer without a few stylish hats and floppy hats are one of the trendiest accessories for Summer. I am a big fan of fedora hats and Panama hats – I’ve got a nice collection of them going, but I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect floppy hat. Hats are perfect for busy moms on the go to look stylish without having to fuss about doing their hair. Hats also help get you out of that ponytail rut too. It doesn’t matter if your hair is a little dirty or a bit messy when you throw on a hat, it actually looks like you wanted those messy waves.

When buying a floppy hat to wear as a daily accessory make sure the brim is not too big and floppy, you still need to be able to drive and actually see what you are doing!  The larger brimmed floppy hats are for laying at the pool and blocking your face from the sun. In which case you may need two floppy hats for Summer!

Floppy Hats

1. Straw Outback Hat $39.95  / 2. MultiColor Floppy Hat $42 / 3.  Straw Floppy Hat $38           / 4. Braided Straw Sun Hat $34.95 / 5. Stoned Washed Fedora Hat $40

Micheal Stars Floppy Hats


I love both of these Micheal Stars floppy hats to add a little color to the mix. Micheal Stars Floppy Hat Tomato $42

 

Floppy Summer Hats
Blue Straw Floppy Hat $38  / . David & Young Floppy Hat $22

Seafolly Floppy Hats

ECHO Watercolor Floppy Hat $48 / Seafolly Floppy Hat Black $52

 

 

Do you have your floppy hat for Summer?

essential tank

Luscious lemon

This spring, it’s all about zesty yellow. And, while this season’s “it” hue is popping up on everything from swimsuits to dresses and accessories and nails, sun-lit gear is the best way to add some unexpected flair to your workout look.

Wondering how to wear this poppy shade? Throw on a simple solid top for balance, and prepare for your most motivating, mood-boosting, and invigorating workout ever.

floral capris
Fierce floral

We can’t get enough of the new and innovative ways floral prints are being brought to life this season. Traditionally thought of as pretty and feminine, 2015’s hottest floral prints are brighter, more graphic, and include a touch of tough. Make the look work for you by pairing them with a classic tank, super-sleek ponytail, and simple sneaker. Slip ‘em on and your spring wardrobe will be coming up rosy in no time.

Lovely lace

A pretty girl go-to, lace has continuously been on the top of every fancy lady’s wish list. But, this season, the power of this beautiful fabric is stronger than ever. Popping up on everything from flirty spring dresses to perfectly-pretty workout gear, this textured fabric is the best way to stay cool (hello, ventilation!) and cute at the same time. Slip some on and prepare to turn heads from every angle.

Strappy sports bras

Reveal your toned, sculpted shoulders and back in a sexy, strappy sports bra. Wear this season’s essential workout piece under your favorite racer-back tank, backless top, or slip it on solo to show off those abs. Our new season favorites are so cute, we’re wearing them for working out, going out, and beyond. There’s never been a better time to step up your support system.

These days comfy pants are not only reserved for yoga class and lazy Sunday mornings in bed. Today’s lightweight woven capris have on-trend details, a super-comfy waistband, and are versatile in style – making them perfect for the gym and beyond. The pair we love are functional enough for yoga and other light workouts, comfortable enough to lounge at home, and stylish enough to wear around town.

CORAL Crush
Coral Color Crush

Color is one of my absolute favorite things. I LOVE color. In fact, I hardly have any black or grey clothing, shoes or accessories, my closet is more a rainbow of color. So when the new Spring colors start to roll in I get pretty excited. I am already obsessed with everything yellow, but coral is another Spring color that has definitely caught my eye. Coral is a nice alternative to pink and is a color that looks good on anyone. Much like navy and white, coral seems to be a Spring staple when the weather gets warmer. In fact, you’re probably ready to break out those white jeans and pairing them with coral is pretty much perfection.

Take a look at my favorite coral picks…

1. Kendra Scott Rae Coral Necklace $65
2. Benefit Cosmetics Plush Lip Gloss $16
3. Jacki Design Travel Bag $25
4. Dress My Cupcake Wood Coral Dessert Forks $21
5. Kate Spade Flamingo Phone Case $40
6. Etsy Coral Wood Jewelry Box $16
7. Essie Corals $8.50
8. Natori Feathers Contour Plunge Bra $68
9. Trina Turk Poolside cosmetic bag $68
10. Dolce Vita Datsun Leather Sandal $70
11. Tory Burch Robinson Woven Satchel $485

Spring Fashion Finds for Under $50

10 Must-have spring style essentials under $50

1. Classic Baseball Hat

You need one for super-sunny t-ball games… or for super-rainy ones, for that matter. Ditch that old stinky hat that you run in for something a little more stylish.

2. Tassel Bracelet

Tassels aren’t just for shoes anymore! They’re so cute on bracelets and necklaces and fresh for spring.

3. Luxe Bright Lipstick

If you’re going to splurge on something for your spring wardrobe, make it a new, bright lipstick. There’s nothing better to bring some life into clothes that you’ve had for years.

4. Floppy Hat

Good for the beach, for trips to the park and for sitting down for a few minutes to read a book in the backyard (because we know a few minutes is all you’ll get with kids!). Don’t be afraid to go big!

5. Stripe T-shirt

Stripes are always in, but don’t forget to add a new striped tee to your closet each season.

6. Clubmaster Sunglasses

An updated take on aviator sunglasses, these are a fun way to add spring style accessories to your look!

7. Jogger Pants

If you haven’t jumped into this trend yet, don’t wait any longer. Jogger pants look great on everyone, they’re insanely comfortable and, when paired with the right pieces, they are very stylish, too.

8. Cognac Carryall

Cognac goes with everything. Do  yourself a favor and add a bag in this color to your wardrobe. It’s timeless and season-less.

9. Denim Jacket

If you live somewhere that’s warm year-round, you probably already have a go-to denim jacket. But, if you don’t we suggest one in a lighter color to fit into your spring wardrobe. You’ll have it for years!

10. Gladiator Sandal

Always in style and always available in fresh, new styles each spring, a gladiator sandal is going to be your on-the-go sandal for spring.

What are you spring style must-haves that don’t break the bank?

White Jeans Guide for Moms this Spring

Ever wonder how to wear white jeans? This is our guide to white jeans… for the everyday mom. With our help, white jeans will quickly become part of your spring uniform! We have everything you’ll need to pair with your white jeans — six tops and six pairs of shoes — as well as our favorite six pairs of white jeans to get your collection started.

SIX TOPS FOR WHITE JEANS

6 Tops for white jeans

Tunic tops

Tunic tops are easy to throw on, long enough to keep everything covered while wrestling your children into the car, and often embellished for added beauty.

Printed t-shirts

Printed tee shirts are more forgiving than your standard solid ones. Find one made of a blend with a small percentage of Spandex to ensure it keeps it’s shape all day long.

Lightweight sweaters

Spring temperatures can vary from coast-to-coast, so you may need a sweater on the heavier side to wear with your white jeans. A lightweight sweater in a soft or bright color is the answer for you!

Textured blouses

Try texture — lace, eyelet, metallic thread, beading, jewels, zippers. Clothing, especially tops, are so much more interesting when they have dimension. And also, very flattering.

Gingham

People are still crazy for gingham. It’s cute, classic, and all around fun. A button-up is simple and versatile. Pair this top from J.Crew Factory with a pair of white jeans and the compliments will be plentiful.

Fun sweatshirts

You don’t want to wear your husband’s old, oversized college sweatshirt, but a semi-fitted sweatshirt in a fun color, print, or maybe even one with lace would be a super great outfit for school pickup!

6 SHOES FOR WHITE JEANS

6 Shoes for white jeans

Suede wedges or heels

Light-colored suede is a smart way to make the transition from winter to spring. You can find tan or grey suede in almost every retail store right now. Wedges, heels, sandals, flats, booties… all look fantastic with white jeans.

Animal print flats

Instead of leopard print, try snakeskin flats with your white jeans and don’t be afraid to treat them as a neutral color. Snakeskin can go with almost anything!

Cognac leather booties, sandals or wedges

Cognac leather is warm and gorgeous. Whether you go with a bootie, mule or sandal, you will be able to wear these all spring and throughout the summer, too.

Colored sneakers

Who knew sneakers could be so stylish? These are a must-have right now and a perfect match for white jeans.

Metallic flats, loafers, sneakers, or espadrilles

Silver, gold, rose gold, or bronze… metallic is in! Try a gold or silver closed-toe espadrille with your white jeans and a chambray shirt.

Spring is the perfect time to add new life to your closet and these 10 fantastic staple pieces will let you go ahead and start transitioning your wardrobe from spring to summer. From denim dresses to pendent necklaces, each of these items will be a stylish choice for your everyday life.

10 Closet staples for spring
1. Stripes

The shirt shown is by J.Crew for Net-A-Porter, but also look at places like Target or Forever 21 for striped t-shirts, sweaters and even tanks.

2. Midi skirt

If you have not tried the midi trend yet, you’ll be amazed by how long they make your legs look! Yes, it’s true. The midi I chose for this post is a super steal at just over $14 and I love it. I can see it with a blouse or a t-shirt, heels or flats… the possibilities are endless.

3. Trench

I love a classic long trench coat, but I fell in love with this short swing trench from J.Crew as a fresh new spin for spring. It is made of poplin and is just so versatile. This jacket would be a terrific addition to any closet.

4. Denim dress

Denim dresses are everywhere this season! This dress from Zara stood out to me, mostly because of the v-neck — which is flattering on most everyone — and the beautiful embellishment on the front. I’ve also seen great choices at Gap, Old Navy, Forever 21, and Target, so be sure to shop around.

5. Gladiator sandal

Gladiator sandals are still in style. My favorite pick is the Lowell flat by Tory Burch, but if you’re looking for a steal try one of these: Mossimo Wendi, Barbados Thong by Mia, or the Selma by Circus for Sam Edelman.

6. Lace

Lace, in general, is very feminine and beautiful, making it a great choice for spring. How can you not feel gorgeous wearing it? Try adding lace to your closet with a blouse like this one from J.Crew or a pullover from Anthropologie for a more casual look.

7. Perforated flats

Menswear is still a hot item on lists of trends, including for this spring. I am not a huge fan of loafers, because I was a child of the the ’90s when Eastland penny loafers were “the thing” to wear. But, I have completely jumped on board with the slip-on sneaker and perforated flat version of this trend. They are a nice change from ballet flats, still giving us a closed toe without having to wear socks. It’s a win-win! Many stores and designers have shoes in this style out right now and at every price point, from Payless to Neiman Marcus.

8. White jeans

White jeans, I love you with all of my heart. I love you in the spring with a dark sweater and into fall with riding boots. They are a clean, classic look. Your closet wants white jeans! Try a straight, slim fit like these.

9. Pendant necklace

From shiny gold to wooden beads, you can wear pendant necklaces with just about anything! And, you can find them everywhere right now — Instagram flash sales, Etsy, local boutiques, and most major retailers. Find one you love and I guarantee you will find yourself wearing it daily.

10. Chic carryall

Over-sized carryalls give you functionality and style in one. Whether heading to the office, park, or out to dinner, you can keep everything you might need on hand without compromising a chic look.

Whether you add one or all then of these staples to your closet this spring, take the time to find a style that fits you and wear it with confidence.

5 looks from head to toe

We teamed with one of our favorite moms Venessa Kaufman, founder of We The Classy to show our busy moms 5 Ultra-Stylish Day-to-Day looks with sneakers. Venessa is a mother of two toddlers, blogger, model, and a registered financial broker who is always on the go. All of us can relate to Venessa’s journey, finding a way to feel like yourself and be a mom. “I found that being stylish like my pre-baby self, while dressing functionally for my post-baby self has been a key component in determining how my day is going to go” says Venessa.

I think we can all agree with V when she says “that handling a tantrum on a staircase in stilettos is a hazard to anyone’s safety!” So for all of you girls who (pre-baby) were constantly running around in heels, this is for you! Using the same pair of New Balance sneakers we created 5 looks that are free of those traditional black yoga pants. If you don’t already own a pair, we strongly advises you to purchase a pair of neutral or monochromatic “sneakers” to accomplish these looks.

1. The Cool T-shirt Trend
Hot to rock a t-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes for a casuel look

Secret Beauty Tip From Venessa:

Another obstacle I’ve encountered is having pretty manicured nails between giving baths and making dinners. Through trial and lots of error I have discovered two Essie nail colors that are both lovely and extremely fast drying. So fast that if you need to have your nails done for a night out you can throw on a coat as you step out the door with no fear, or even while sitting in the playroom with the kiddos.

IMG_5182The two colors are called Haute As Hello and Good As Gold. Both are worth their weight in gold to a busy stylish mama.

I strongly believe that part of being a good mom is being good to one’s self. Our kids learn from our actions. If we are kind to ourselves and are confident about our images as mothers, then they will learn how to be confident as well. You are someone’s idol.

We loved working with Venessa aka VNK. She is the sweetest! Thank you for having so much fun with us and sharing some of your tips. For more with VNK follow @wetheclassy

Because moms love their jeans

How many days of the week do you wear jeans? Three days? Five? All seven? Moms and jeans go together like, well, moms and jeans. Moms love jeans so much that they even have an entire jean category named after them (no, we aren’t suggesting you need actual mom jeans!). These jeans for moms are staples that you should have in your closet, no matter what your size, shape or style.

5 Pairs of jeans every mom needs in her closet
 5 Pairs of Jeans Every Mom Needs in Her Closet
1. Boyfriend jeans

Boyfriend jeans are a casual style of jeans that are more than just a passing trend. They’re often a bit bigger and baggier than the jeans you typically wear and sometimes they even have that pre-loved look with strategically placed rips in just the right places.

Jeans for Moms- Boyfriend Jeans

But, just because they are casual, doesn’t mean that you should dress boyfriend jeans down. Pair them with some feminine flats and a pretty floral top to balance the style of the jeans or take it one step further, throwing them on with your sassiest heels!

(Pictured: 1969 Sexy Boyfriend Jeans, GAP, $70)

2. Colored jeans

These will likely be the trendiest pair of jeans in your closet because the color you choose can be seasonal — pastel colored jeans for spring, brighter colors and even neons for summer, rich jewel tones for fall and soft neutrals for winter.

Jeans for Moms- Colored Jeans

Colored jeans are such a fun way to add a pop of seasonal color to your wardrobe or to try out a color-of-the-moment (maybe in the latest Pantone Color of the Year?). Wear them with bold patterned tops for an outfit that makes a statement, or color block them with other solid pieces or pieces in the same color family to give a new look a try.

(Pictured: Women’s The Rockstar Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans, Old Navy, $35) 

3. Skinny jeans

Let us make ourselves perfectly clear — skinny jeans mean different things to different moms and we embrace that. When we suggest that every mom should have skinny jeans in her closet, we mean that every mom needs a pair of jeans that is slim-fitting on her body. Find a pair that is slim-fitting through the entire leg of the jean and most importantly at the ankle — the signature piece of what makes a skinny jean a skinny jean.

Jeans for Moms- Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are incredibly versatile, especially if you buy them in a dark wash that will go with practically anything in your closet. Wear them with your favorite shoes  — from flats to wedges to those retro sneakers you adore — then pick a top shape that is flattering to go with them.

(Pictured: Charlie Skinny Jeans, Lucky Brand, $99)

4. Black jeans

If you’re going to invest in a pair of jeans, put your money into a pair of black jeans. Not only will you have them for years, but the more you spend on a pair of black jeans, the longer they will last and the less their color will fade. Buy them in whatever your favorite jean style may be, but we strongly suggest a simple, classic fit and style that will be timeless.

Jeans for Moms- Black Jeans

You can obviously dress up a pair of black jeans with a pair of heels and a cute blazer, but try taking them to the next level, too. Add some ankle boots and a casual v-neck tee for a completely different look. Or, use them as a base in your outfit for those animal prints that you can’t resist or for a pop of color that’s on-trend.

(Pictured: Paige Denim Skyline Skinny Jeans in Black Shadow, Nordstrom, $169)

5. Wide leg jeans

Wide leg jeans can be controversial, but we think they’re a must-have. Not only are they the perfect jean to wear with those espadrille wedges that you love, but they are actually quite flattering on all body types, especially if you pair them with the pieces that are right for you.

Jeans for Moms- Wide Leg Jeans

For moms who are short or petite, wearing wide leg jeans with wedges are a must to give you enough height to keep them from dragging on the ground. Moms who have more length to play with can pair them with flats for a soft, feminine look. All moms should consider what they wear as a top with wide leg jeans — try one that is more fitted to balance the wider shape of the bottom half of your outfit, which will make your waist look small.

(Pictured: Wideleg Jeans, Boden, $78)
