Stacey writes, “I am 25 years old & a new mommy to an amazing baby boy who is now 7months. I am planning his 1st bday and now that I have finally picked a direction for the party I NEED to check outfits off the list. I didnt have a baby shower so this is my first chance to celebrate mommyhood and of course this will be a memory to forever have in the photo album. I would love for our ensembles to coordinate and was hoping for something sexy, comfortable and classy for myself. It will be in August but since I am on a budget I need to plan ahead. There isn’t a theme but the color scheme is royal blue, orange, green and brown. I am sure your other readers will appreciate this post since Mother’s Day is coming up as well. It would be amazing if you could feature a Mommy and Me “What to Wear” on your blog.”
Sure thing! Our What to Wear Internship contestant #2 came up with the following gems.
She writes, “This $40 TOPSHOP cobalt blue number is charming with princess darts and A-line flair. Jazz up this bit of flirt with serious neck wear hinting blue tones. The 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Hour tote is polished and doubles as a stash away of necessities for the little one.”
” To complete your look: add a chronological watch, a bright orange band, flat stud earrings and nude polished toes in these so-very-cute Rachel Zoe Gladys Camel Ankle-Cuff Flat Sandals. The birthday boy mirrors mommy’s look in a chunky stripey t-shirt and adorable stripey overalls. Check out the two-tone sneakers!”
Next, she writes, “We got you covered and fitted in a Clu Basic orange slim cardigan with a TOPSHOP tube skirt in navy and white contrasting stripes. Since you’ll be running after the one-year-old birthday boy and friends, March23 Wedges in orange is a great contender!”
” Another option is TOPSHOP’s Calf Skater skirt in bright orange perfectly colorblocking with Karl Lagerfield’s sleeveless shirt. But top this look with JIL Sander Wedges. Statement earrings and neck wear along with a chronological watch is all you need! The birthday boy is going for his own stripey polo shirt from Zara and adding a bit of fun with J. Crew’s superimposed lobster shorts—too cute! Finish the adorableness with a neon braided belt, colorful stripey socks (both from J.Crew) and Zara’s Vintage Basketball hi-top sneakers.”
Lastly, she says, “Everyone looks great in a flattering A-line skirt; this green TOPSHOP number is no different. The mommy of the 1-year-old birthday boy can compliment the pleated piece with a ruffle bodice playsuit to pull in the midsection or go with a stripey button-down classic shirt.”
“Colorblocking with a thin orange belt is superb—either way! Playful much? Rock the stripey scarf as a quasi turban. Can’t forget the wrist candy as the Michael Kors tote is being handled. And the little one? He has his own stripes paired with white suspender shorts, finishing with Zara Nautical Plimsoll sneakers. Don’t forget to change out the laces for whimsical fun.”
There you have it! These are super thorough. I’m impressed!
