peter som

World-renowned designer (and self-confessed beach bum) Peter Som has designed an amazing collection for Kohl’s DesigNation that is inspired by St. Barths. You’ll just soak up the colors, the culture and the bliss of island life.

Now I normally don’t get very excited about celebrity / designer collaborations, but I’m seriously stoked about this collection. For reals. Sure I’m 8 months pregnant and don’t even want to WEAR clothes right now because I’m so ungodly-uncomfortable, but this collection has me ooooing and aaaahing at the amazing pieces. I want to replace my entire wardrobe with one of everything from this awesome collection. It’s so fresh, breezy and summery! Just what i want to see after a long, hard cold winter in New England. Bring on the maxi dresses!

The collection debuts in stores and online TODAY, April 10th, so click here for more info about the Peter Som collection and get ready to be amazed.

The Nautical Trend: Nursing Moms Edition


Nautical Trend for Nursing Mothers

Nautical Trend for Nursing Mothers by thehousewife featuring eBags and Caroline Hill Collection

I’m totally into the nautical trend right now and have invested in several ridiculously cute JoJo nursing tops and a nice navy stripe nursing dress to make nursing AND trendy a cinch.

I can pair just about any of it with my new Michael Kors Gold Marina Grab Bag from eBags. It’s classically nautical so no matter what you wear with it, you are going to look sea-side ready. I absolutely ADORE this bag! It’s classy, chic and perfect for Spring and Summer. I can’t wait to rock this bag all summer long!!!!

Be sure to check out eBags.com to find this bag and many other designer handbags from big brands like Michael Kors, which is a super hot brand right now. I’m pretty sure Michael Kors is “the” it brand for 2014 because I’ve seen more MK bags on people than Coach bags for the past couple weeks. Luckily, eBags has a huge selection of MK bags at great prices. Be sure to check them out!

How To Wear Bright Colors for Spring

It’s time to pack away those dark, wintery colors and bring on the pastels, neons and other bright colors for spring! We are seeing more bright colors than ever this season but it can be overwhelming if you are used to wearing neutrals. Don’t worry, incorporating bright colors into your spring wardrobe is easier (and less circus-like) than you think!

HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT PANTS:

Pair brightly colored jeans or pants with a basic striped tee, a chambray shirt or denim jacket and nude flats. Easiest outfit EVER.

HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT SHOES:

Pair bright shoes with denim skinnies, neutral blouse or tee (think white, gray, nude, pale pink), a neutral blazer (like navy, black, dark gray) and a brightly colored necklace or other bright accessories for a hint of color in your ensemble. Check out the bright accessories below for ideas!

HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT ACCESSORIES:

If you are afraid of color, start with some fun, brightly colored accessories like this coral scarf or yellow bubble necklace. Pair them with anything you would normally wear from a sundress to jeans. Mix and match! I like to carry a bright bag or colorful wallet like the one above from MyWalit. It just screams happiness!

HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT DRESSES:

If you are ready to pull out the big guns this spring, shop for a brightly colored dress in one of this season’s hottest hues like neon yellow or bright pink. Pair with a denim jacket or neutral colored blazer and nude heels for a look that is both fashion forward and ready for spring!

Whats your favorite way to wear bright colors? Are you afraid to step outside your comfort zone?

PANTONE Color Of The Year 2014 – Radiant Orchid

radiant orchid color of the year

What PANTONE Has To Say About Radiant Orchid:

Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.

Being a redhead, I’m not super elated about this being the color of the year since it definitely does NOT go with red hair. However, I think Radiant Orchid is an extremely beautiful color and it didn’t take me any time at all to find a handful of fun items in this spring-ready color!

How To Wear The Bomber Vest

I love wearing vests in the Fall before it gets too cold to go without sleeves. My favorite is the bomber vest.

You can bomber vests in almost every store this year. The prices range from around $20 up to $2,000 if you want to get real fancy! There is a huge difference in styles too.

I personally prefer the leather look like this Goode Rider Ladies Bomber Vest. It’s the perfect warm and cozy layer with versatile style! Perfect for the chilly fall days, this stylish vest can be worn with anything from your favorite jeans to a dress for an evening out.
