Happy Weekend.October 02 2015, 0 Comments

The weather always has a way of putting plans at a pause, which is not a bad thing. After a week of being clumsy (from being so tired to be honest) and losing one thing a day...metro card, charm bracelet...I even accidently stabbed myself with a fork. After the sad news of Oregon yesterday (can some politician actually start caring about the gun violence? Like REALLY doing something?! ) I am ready for a night of staying in. A couple of days of nature upstate and just chilling.

What always seems to bring people, at least for me back to what really matters is hearing that a new life has join us. Yes, Erica finally had her baby girl this morning. I'll let her tell her birth story when she is ready but... oh this baby is cute. I am really excited she is here and to have a wee one around again. Congrats to Erica, her family and to Baby Young, we are so happy you're here.

Super Hero Comic Book!October 01 2015, 0 Comments




Now that he is moving up in the world my boy has some serious homework . To allow some fun and also to know that his desk area does not always have to be about what is due and expectant-he now has this awesome comic book where one can make their own super heros and draw out some adventures. This is a nice reminder for the kiddies to have fun, draw..be creative! He loved the Super Book For Super Heros which btw is not for the boys-girls have been know to take over these series by Jason Ford on play dates here at Casa Ladd. Check it out here!

Re-thinking the Jumpsuit.September 28 2015, 0 Comments


If you thought the romper or the jumpsuit was a passing trend..wrong..this trend is now onto at least their third seasons with the styles are only getting better.

I have heard many of my mom friends comment that they do not feel they can wear this look. I do agree it can be a bit of a challenge however it is one worth trying. Why? Hmmm where to start...stylish...comfort-ability..easy to throw on and although the bathroom breaks do suck the one piece wear that is not a dress is what a mom needs in her wardrobe. I made some mistakes with the styles I bought last year... I picked them at a slim size where really I should have gone up a size, as I like them a bit loose. As mentioned the styles this season look a hundred times better. More nips at the waist, last years style seem to be all about the drop waist with a waist band which is basically stating that you have to hit the right points of that design to really look good. This season there are more crop options at the sleeve and legs...for us non- string beans we need to show a bit more skin to balance this blob of fabric-necks, ties at the waist looks and criss- cross fronts finally give us options. I also always wear a jumpsuit with some height at the show be it a heel or clog. For work I add a blazer or long sweater, as these pieces do need to be balanced.  Frankly, I cannot find anything to wear this season...I 'm not really into what the stores are offering so if you see me in a jumpsuit...romper don't be surprised as I am declaring this the piece that a mom needs to embrace.
