Top Picks For Fall Fashion
PLUS Radical Skincare Giveaway!
For the last few months, since school let out for summer, I’ve certainly enjoyed not having to rush out the door in the mornings to catch the bus. I’ve loved not having to shoe-horn creating a nutritious-yet-cool peanut-free lunch into my morning routine (already jammed with arguing about whose turn it is to feed the dog, arguing about which shirt really goes with plaid shorts, arguing about whether the bed counts as made if the pillow is still on the floor, arguing about… well, you get the idea). I have been joyous about the leisurely approach to the day’s activities, if not exactly enthusiastic about the entourage I have to drag to the market with me (“She looked at me!”). It's been a glorious summer, filled with fun family activities and lots of great bonding time with my little ones.
But really, I've got to admit I am thrilled that school has started again! I have three sweet mornings all to myself each week and I am making excellent use of the time. I've been able to do a little gardening, get a little exercise, and more importantly, I've been able to do some fashion reconnaissance in preparation for upgrading my mommy wardrobe for fall. Let's check to make sure I've got all my bases covered:
Lunch with a Girlfriend: I’ll stroll into the local bistro looking sassy (but not inappropriate) in slim denims and a slouchy lightweight sweater over a slim little cami. Or maybe an easy knit dress and tights. My feet will be comfy in darling detailed flats and I’ll have the day’s essentials tucked into my nifty mod hobo. I’ll simply push my shades up on top of my head and relax for the forty-five minutes until pick-up, sharing my first uninterrupted girlfriend convo in six years.
Yogalates Class: Now that I can safely say that my pregnancy and nursing days are behind me, there is no longer an excuse for the muffins that drape over my waistband, and as much as I love them, tunics will surely go out of vogue again some day. Now is my chance to take care of me and whip myself into shape for next spring’s family escape vacation (hey, a mom can dream, right?). I’m luring myself into the gym on a regular basis with the promise of new sleek workout wear top and bottom, and a light, fun new pair of sneaks. Once the muffins are gone, I’ll reward my diligence with a slightly more significant addition to my wardrobe; here’s hoping!
Shopping By Myself: Just think of all the comparison shopping, new-item-trying, deal-hunting I’ve missed by having little “helpers” with me all the time! While I’m not sure this activity really warrants a specific wardrobe selection, it will certainly be nice to wear my new cardigan and cool screened tee without worrying that someone will grind Goldfish into my shoulders or drip juice box down the front of my new cropped trousers and onto the toes of my oh-so-adorable new Chooze! Seriously, these shoes are so fun! They are actually made for kids, but are so popular that they have a few styles for moms as well. I'm going to snap up a pair for my little guy and a pair for my little angel as well.
Missing My Angels: As much as I try to convince myself I’ll be glad of the alone time, I know I’ll be waiting for pickup with bells on. Well, maybe not bells, but certainly a fabulous skirt, flat boots with a bit of western flair (hey, I am a cutting edge mom!), and a cozy cardigan and a sweetly unique necklace. (It never hurts to be the cutest one in the parking lot at preschool.)
Enjoy these final days of Indian Summer my dears, and make sure to spend extra one-on-one time with each of your children even if it’s just 15 minutes a day. They’ll remember it forever!

Introducing Ouidad’s NEW
Color Sense™ Collection
Curly hair has texture, wave, and porosity – all qualities that determine how color looks and how long it will last. Ouidad’s new color care line uses the ultimate technology to preserve and enhance vibrancy for not only curly hair, but for all textures and styles. Now, all hair types can find comfort in maintaining color.
The corkscrew shape of curly hair keeps the outer cuticle layer open, leaving the hair shaft more able to take color, but also susceptible to color fading and dehydration. In addition, sun exposure and other environmental factors can severely damage colored hair from root to tip. Just in time for Summer, Ouidad’s NEW Color Sense™ Collection preserves and protects against fading, so color is never flat or dull. The Color Sense trio with a proprietary Color Lock complex includes a shampoo and conditioner, but the star of the line is the Shine Boosting Color Extender treatment which nourishes, shields, enhances vibrancy and extends the life of color.
The Color Sense Collection gently removes mineral deposits and product build up that lead to premature stripping of color. The result is shiny and radiant hair, salon visit worthy at its best.
Color Preserving Shampoo Key Benefits
- Gently removes mineral deposits and product buildup that can strip color
