Queens Are Born in September {My Birthday Wish List}

More people are born in September than any other month. One of those people is ME!

Today is my birthday! I put together my wish list and am publishing it here for anyone who wants to gift me something for this big day! (wink)

I’ve seen this very fun dark grey message shirt on Instagram, “Queens are Born in September” and it’s perfect. I found it on Etsy! This “Queens are Born in September” tee is 100% preshrunk cotton and I love that it comes in a v-neck because that makes it even more feminine. ($20)

 

I, like a lot of people, am naturally attracted to the neckline so I have always wanted to have a signature necklace I could wear everyday. A birthstone necklace is in order.

If I could get the world, I’d love this 14K White Gold Diamond and Oval Sapphire Trio Accent pendant ($425) but I’d totally settle for this much cheaper  cute Birthstone Necklace by LA Mini Jewelry Ultimate Karma Eternity Necklace ($43.20)

To match, I am digging AroshaTaglia‘s sterling silver CORAL Blue Saphhire ring ($215).

For the earth girl in me, Luxezen’s Raw blue sapphire gemstone stud earrings  ($58.75) are gorgeous and a marvelous fit! These earrings are made of unique raw stone nuggets hand paired for size, cut and color and set in gold filled, rose gold filled, or sterling silver ear posts.

Because I am a big fan of message tees, I am crushing on Bougie Girl Shop‘s I Am A September Woman shirt which also reads, “I Am Stronger Than You Believe, Braver Than You Know, Smarter Than You Think”($20) which is a very timely and relevant message for me right now in my life.

I need a nice bag to schlep all my stuff in and only Burberry‘s Nova Check  Canvas Tote ($297) will do! It is spacious and a signature piece!

 

I’m older and blinder today and need to upgrade my eyeglasses with my new prescriptions. A pair of Gucci 51MM Optical Glasses ($119) will do just fine!

Because I plan to start recording a series of video snippets, I need make up because an on-call Make Up Artist is not in the budget right now. I’ll take MAC Complete make up kit ($55)to hold me over until the big bucks come flowing in.

Finally, my last laptop died. I know Apple Mac Books are best but I’m still a Microsoft girl so Inspiron 14 3000 laptop will be a great replacement($229)

 

Age Aint Nuthin’ But A Number: These Older Celeb Moms’ Style Won the Weekend

This weekend and last a few of our past celeb mom features and faves showed out and showed us that age isn’t anything but a number. Singer Monica Brown, international lawyer Amal Clooney and model and actress Christie Brinkley were photographed and/or spotted out and about in fierece boots, hot pants and super gorge accessories.

Each women, aged 37, 40 and 64 respectively could easily pass for a decade or two younger based on their youthful figures, style and flawless skin.

While Clooney, who is also married to director, producer, actor and philanthropist George Clooney, is usually seen in conservative coats and A-line dresses, the mom to twins arrived to an event this weekend in Alexander Wang shorts,over Alexander Wang leather pants, topped by a feathered and embroidered Valentino jacket. She finished the look in a pair of leather boots.

Monica has been on tour and showing off colorful, fabulous looks in her carefully and perfectly styled Instagram page and it was no different about a week ago when she wore white thigh high feathered boots under a long sleeve denim dress with a long plaid duster tied around her waist.

Meanwhile, 64 year old Brinkley was seen out and about in a super cute Gucci logo Light Felted Cotton Sweatshirt and toting the It Bag, Mrs. Thom striped pebbled leather tote by Thom Browne and rocking vicious pair of red patent leather Gianvito RossiLevy 100 ankle boots.

Work it ladies! Show these younger women how it’s done!

Trend Alert: Floral Print for the Summer (GET THE LOOK)

Floral dresses were on and popping at the Summer/Spring 2017 fashion shows. Since then, we’ve seen a lot of designers and brand put out variations of florals for their customers. The best thing about floral print is that it can be dressed up with a pair of strappy sandals or heels or dressed down with denim jeans or  capris. You can wear the print while out and about errand wearing or to brunch.

There are no limits. A lot of moms-to-be and new moms may think that prints are a no-no because they draw attention, but they really shouldn’t fear floral print. They usually come in very feminine variety and are often on a very light, soft and sophisticated fabric making floral print a no brainer.

I, personally, used to stay away from floral prints but when I found myself unable to escape them in the stores, I took the plunge and purchased one top and then floral pants and now I’m hooked.

 

This weekend saw Kerry Washington in a Rebecca Taylor Print Mix dress, Chrissy Tiegen in an Isabel Marant Iam Symmetrical midi print dress, Molly Sims in Zimmerman’s Mercer Floating floral print silk chiffon screen dress, Reese Witherspoon in a Tiffany Blue floral Draper James dress; and Kelly Ripa in a Gucci Floral and Snake print silk midi dress

The duo modeled their playful and fun dresses on a balcony in Paris with the Eiffel Tower in the background!  Blue wore a cute pink cat-ears headband and flat leather-and-neon sandals.  Mrs. Carter’s mini dress featured adorable tiered ruffle sleeve. The award-winning multi-platinum pop singer paired her look with a black collar brooch, cat-eye frame glasses, a hot pink envelope clutch, and open-toed metallic pink heels. Stunning!

For the rest of us moms and me, we too can do mom and me fashion with our daughters. Mom and Me Fashion is bigger than ever. More and more clothing companies and brands making miniature versions of a dress or outfit for baby. Also, fashion conscious moms who are creative are taking the time to put together mini-me versions of their clothing for their daughter.

mom and me fashion
If you’re thinking of crafting a miniature look, you don’t have to do the precise design and pattern but can mix it up and have the same impact like wear one shoulder rompers together. You can do horizontal stripes and have baby wear diagonal stripes. Match the cuts versus the color. Like you and your daughter can wear a-line dresses or matching maxi dresses.
