Why The Riding Boot is a Winter Wardrobe Staple for all Moms-to-Be

winter riding boot
This winter, if you are preggers and looking for winter footwear to purchase for yourself or put on your holiday wish list, you cannot go wrong with The Riding Boot. Traditionally, these are Equestrian boots worn by those who ride horses, but fashion houses have taken them and put a fashion twist on them and mass produce them for the cosmopolitan market of fashion-conscious female shoppers.

It’s a wardrobe “must-have” in my book. Pregnant or not, each woman should have a pair of Riding Boots in her shoe closet.

The Riding Boot is also the pregnant woman’s best friend compared to other types of fall and winter boots.

The Riding Boot is stylish and comes in a lot of different colors and variations. Most brands sell leather Riding Boots but occasionally, you will spot a pair made of tough suede.

The Riding Boot is also easier to slip into while pregnant compared to a wedge boot. A lot have zippered sides and the calf area is usually wider so if you’re experiencing swelling during your pregnancy, that wider shaft can assist that extra girth in the calf.

You can also get a Riding Boot in a supple and flexible material with some give.

The heels on Riding Boots are usually low or flat which are perfect for moms-to-be who have to adjust as their center of gravity shifts as their bellies grow.  With high heel boots, a pregnant woman risks a fall that can be potentially fatal to her baby.

My fave brand is Via Spiga because they sell in a moderate price range and you can get a good boot between $70 to $100 and even way less if you catch a good sale or find a pair in one of those discount stores.

Vince Camuto and BCBG Generation boots are most stylish and appealing to me. I love the classic look of Tory Burch. Her signature gold insignia on the boot also stands out and lets others know you’re wearing a quality boot. Of course, the Hunter and Burberry Boot is a great brand that is quality and recognizable. They are long lasting. Take care of them by polishing and brushing them regularly.

They’ll be a great investment!

This 2-yr Old Instagram Star Just Launched Her Own Fashion Line

Seriously!?! Someone’s 22-month old baby just launched her own fashion line.

An Australian toddler, with an expansive wardrobe, by the name of Mille-Belle Diamond boasts 144,000 Instagram followers and, according to the Daily Mail Australia, is set to sell a line of sequinned capes and jackets, fur coats, leather caps and studded leather jackets.

The IG account describes Mille-Belle as a “fashion and travel blogger”.  It’s 2015. There’s no need to know how to talk to be a blogger. ?

Mille-Belle’s venture will be called MBD- The label.

“The new line will be a luxe line for babies and will also cater to that niche market for mums and bubs matching fashion,” the blonde-haired, blue-eyed Instagram star’s mom Schye Fox, told the paper. “We are getting the pieces made from the best in the world so we have people from all over the world working on it for us.”

Wow! Ok. WTG, baby. Well. WTG, Mom because really, the baby really isn’t doing any of this. Ha!

Weekend Celeb Style Pick: Hilary Duff’s Chic Casual Wear (GET THE LOOK)

weekend style pick

We combed through our favorite gossip sites and mags to come up with our fave celeb mom weekend street style and the winner was….Hilary Duff!

With the weather getting colder, a zippered Broome motorcycle jacket in a soft supple leather by IRO is the perfect accompaniment for a chic weekend outfit that includes basic black denim skinny jeans ( like Stella McCartney’s long skinny jeans) and a plain white tee shirt (like T by Alexander Wang). These Marc by Marc Jacobs Jacobs Carroll studded booties Duff is sporting go great with the look. She can keep warm in a snug orange wool scarf.

We like LaCoste’s scarves because they feel great against the skin and do not itch because they are made with all natural materials. The actress and recording artist can keep the sun out of your eyes with smart cat eye sunglasses like these Celene  Audrey Black Acetate shades.

Love the look!  GET THE LOOK:

T by Alexander Wang Classic T Shirt with Pocket • Alexander Wang • $85

Stella McCartney Long Skinny Black Denim Jeans, Blue-Black • Stella McCartney • $295

LACOSTE Orange Wool Scarf • Lacoste • $58.33

Marc by Marc Jacobs Carroll Booties • Marc by Marc Jacobs • $224–269

Céline CL41805/S New Audrey Black Acetate Sunglasses • Celine • $324

IRO Broome Leather Jacket • IRO • $801.50

All of Daphne Oz’s Maternity Looks We Missed in One Post

daphne chew Collage

I didn’t know Daphne OZ, (Dr. Oz’s daughter) from The Chew was expecting her second child. She and her investment analyst hubby John Jovanovic  welcomed a son, Jovan Jovanovic ((JJ for short) about 6 weeks ago.  Pooh!

The couple have an almost two year old daughter Philomena Bijou  (nicknamed Philo for short), who they welcomed last February. The thing with pregnant TV hosts on daily shows is they have the best stylist to hook them up with the most adorbs looks. And Oz names the brands she wears so her fans and followers on social media can get the same style or look.  Awesome sauce! And now, all the photos we didn’t get to stalk earlier. (smile)






dreading having to wear real clothes again…ever.

10 Stylish yet Functional Diaper Bags for Dudes

diaper bags for guys
Dads and dudes don’t want to carry around fruity, colorful and flowery diaper bags.  During baby showers, some guests think of the papas to be and gift a diaper bag just for dads to carry around.
My husband loved the J-Cole Cross Body Messenger Sling across the chest bag we found because it was light and not too bulky and kept his hands free. Sadly, the bag is discontinued.  These days more manufacturers are creating masculine bags for dads.
Here are 5 we spotted and like via our partners at ShopStyle Collective that are stylish and functional diaper bags for dads.

Diaper Dude ‘Texas Rangers’ Messenger Diaper Bag • Diaper Dude • $78

Storksak ‘Jamie’ Leather Diaper Bag • Storksak • $280

Ju-Ju-Be ‘BFF’ Diaper Bag • Ju-Ju-Be • $165

Storksak ‘Aubrey’ Diaper Bag • Storksak • $185

Diaper Dude ‘Messenger II’ Diaper Bag • Diaper Dude • $98

Quiksilver ‘Daddy’ Day Bag • Quiksilver • $60

TWELVElittle ‘Allure’ Nylon Backpack Diaper Bag • $245

Diaper Dude Convertible Diaper Bag • Diaper Dude • $110

Skip Hop ‘Forma’ Diaper Bag Backpack • Skip Hop • $70

Burberry Check Print Messenger Diaper Bag • Burberry • $1,195

Editor’s Fall Weekend Picks for Preginistas

fall maternity

Just because the temperature has dipped and there may be fallen leaves or in some parts of the country snow on the ground doesn’t mean you need to be stuck indoors this weekend. If you plan to venture out to go shopping, run errands, catch a movie or simply schlep your children to activities, you can still do it in style, mamas and mamas-to-be.

Here are my picks for weekend outings:

  • You do not want to be all stifled and confined to a heavy coat. So, instead, layer, layer, layer. Start with a long sleeve jersey top (or maternity top), layer a second one over that or add a thick but not so chunky sweater.
  • Loop an infinity sweater around your neck like J. Crew’s Cashmere infinty scarf in a neutral tone. ($208)
  • Then, skip the wool coat and instead top it with a vest like Tart Maternity “Aislin” vest ($119).
  • To stay chic and current, carry a tote for all your stuff in black but with a whimsical or fun image emblazoned on it. I love Juicy Couture’s Lion Scream Tote ($128).
  • Keep your heat inside your body and on your head by topping your dome with a fashionable wool hat like the Leith Knit Slouch beanie ($28).
  • Accessorize your look with edgy bangles. Ashley Pittman‘s new set of 5 Shaba Bangles in Dark horn ($545) are rocking my world right now. Loves!

There you have it. Have a fab weekend, mamas!

Blogger’s Christmas Wish List: 6 Things on My List

bloggers wish list2

This time of year, people are assembling their Christmas wish list and dropping hints. I am one of them! Here are 6 items on my wish list:

1. Exlura Women’s Off Shoulder Batwing Sleeve Loose Oversized Pullover Sweater Knit Jumper – $22.90

I love silk and silk blend sweaters because they feel great on the skin and have longevity compared to those made of synthetic materials. You can wear this sweater with jeans on the weekend or over dress pants and wear them at an evening function. Love.

2. CONVERSE ALL STAR Boots • Converse • $59

It’s getting cold so it’s boots weather and because I’m always on the go, these Converse boots are a combo of my active sneakers and my riding boots and are Perfect! They are different and will turn heads.

3. Burberry  Plastic Sunglasses • Burberry • $103

I lost these very same glasses a month after I got them this year so a replacement would be great. I love these frames. They fit my face wonderfully.

4. Apple iPad Pro $30 per month+

I love that the iPad Pro  is large enough to function as a laptop and a tablet. I checked out the specs and other functionalities and they’re tops. I’d love to get one of these one of these on Christmas morn.

5. Burberry Small Leather & Canvas Check Henham Cross body Bag • Burberry • $595

I don’t go anywhere without my Coach cross body bag. It lets me keep my hands free and my bag secure to my body. I would love to  get a larger one that can fit more things and can let me give my other bag a rest. This Burberry cross body bag would be ideal!

6. Marc by Marc Jacobs Door Knob iPhone 6 Case • Marc by Marc Jacobs • $88

I have been using the massive protective Otter case that I purchased when I got my iPhone 7  for the longest time because not a lot of manufacturers of chic cases had them available when I first got it. I’m a selfie queen so a stylish alternative to the boring grey I have now would be amazing!.

That’s it for this blogger! What’s on your Christmas wish list?


Fashion Lookbook: Get Inspired by These 7 Maternity Outfits Leah Ashley Rocked

leah style 981

The only sad part about FABLife day time lifestyle talk show Stylist Leah Ashley giving birth to her first child is that am going to miss the very stylish ways she assembled her clothes while pregnant. The co-host to the new show and started her career as a popular YouTuber used accent colors and mix and matched with texture and layered wonderfully to pull together a perfectly styled maternity wardrobe.

I enjoy recreating outfits I’ve seen and hunting down similar if not the same piece. I am a firm believer in not reinventing the wheel. That being said, I spent some time curating my fave looks Ashley wore while preggers and shared on her Instagram page and assembled them into style collections. I share below why I loved each look and where you can get a similar items to recreate the looks. I’m going to pin these on our Bellyitch Maternity Fashion page which you can access.

First above, a chunky cable knit sweater over slouchy sweatpants with a leopard scarf draped in an infinity loop around the neck is a great casual weekend look.

leah style collage 1

Overalls were in style for everyone for a couple of seasons now. That is perfect because traditionally that’s what pregnant women wore because there wasn’t much maternity options. Here, Ashley mixed denim, light denim shirt with stone washed overalls and accented with red slingbacks. Perfect. The statement necklace polishes off the look and is unexpected because it is so ornate compared to super cas denim.

leah collage 3

This ensemble can only work during the first trimester when a mom-to-be hasn’t popped quite much yet, but still wants to conceal a growing bump under a fairly loose top. Pairing this black silk turtleneck with drawstring shorts does the trick. The gladiator boots adds some chic flavor.

leah style 4

Gingham is also a big pattern this year. And also great for hiding a bump in the early months are peplum tops. This top over denim skinny jeans are the money. Add red ballet slippers for cute outfit to wear child shopping or out and about during the weekend.

For more dressy functions or work, a comfy black dress works and wedges are perfect for getting some height but are less unstable as heels. A leather motorcycle jacket is a great outerwear topper. Bucket bags are perfect for carrying all your stuff.

leah style collage2

My eyes immediately went to her heels. Oooh la la. It looks effortlessly stylish and polka dot with anything is classic. With Ashley’s short crop hair, it gives me a modern Audrey Hepburn feel. Love it!

leah style 98

This isn’t a complete outfit but I like the idea of mixing patterns. Here, her gingham cropped pants worn with black and white pumps work so well together. Break the rules why don’t you?

There you go. Hope they inspired your maternity wardrobe for the next few months.

These Celeb Parents Rocked the 2015 Latin Grammy Awards Green Carpet

grammy latin

Tonight is the  the 16th Latin GRAMMY Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on November 19, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Roselyn Sanchez co-hosted the biggest night for Latin artists.

Before the show we spotted another Bellyitch alum Zoe Saldana looking back to her super svelte self in a cute pencil skirt length black dress.

Not a mom but another regular featured parent, Ricky Martin looked extra dapper tonight.

roselyn sanchez 2

Sanchez did an illuminating color, white, the night before attending the 2015 Latin Grammy Person of the Year Honoring Roberto Carlos in Las Vegas yesterday. Nice!

Jada Pinkett-Smith, one of our posh mom style icon recipients, went with embroidered overlay white dress with the bodice shear and strategically placed over her breasts. She was alongside her husband Will Smith who was set to perform with Bomba Estero during the ceremony.
