    Buenos Noches

    Buenos Noches

    "Not even my pajamas fit." That is what she said when she first opened the door to our store. This soon-to-be-mama was in need of clothes, and we got her dressed for a day in the office and a day at the park.  She was so happy to finally have clothing that fit and would continue to fit , as the baby grows. But, we had to tackle her big problem. Pajamas. 



    We all look forward to being able to slip into something comfortable at the end of the day, and EVERYONE should have that luxury. We love lounge wear, and we also love options. That's why we make sure to have them. The Georgia Seamless Nightie is perfect for the warm nights when a nightgown is what you want. The Genna PJ is the perfect balance of softness and cute. They are the go-to for movie night and oh-so-comfy you may never wanna take them off. The Take Me 2 The Hospital Set is the perfect thing to wear as the baby bump grows and exactly what you want in the Hospital Bag for after delivery(No one has ever liked wearing those horrible paper gowns, lol).  And then there is the Cache Coeur with the va-va-va-voom touch of lace!



    So many options that you can wear during pregnancy and then long after. They are all nursing friendly too. They do their job of keeping you comfy from bump to beyond. 



    Night, night, Sleeping Beauty!

    Comfort Dressing

    Comfort Dressing

    Some days, we all need a little comforting. The world is wide and wonderful in so many ways, and, as discussed with a mama 2b the the other day, it is important not to lose sight of that. 

    And to laugh and smile.

    don't sweat it, smile:)

    This mama was trying to get her head around the tragedy going on in the world around her, and was feeling like all she wanted was "comfort food and comfort dressing".  So, she was bringing on the mac and cheese big time apparently, and was in for a duplication of the outfit that she was wearing, in different colors, "I just can't seem to really change my clothes every morning, and my husband, bless him, said that I look beautiful, but suggested that maybe the shop had these pieces in other colors? Ha!"

    This is  what she wore in:

    This is what she wore out -apparently she really had been wearing the same thing for 3 days and knew that her sanity and a degree of happiness could be achieved just by changing clothes.  "Plus, my husband will know that what I keep saying is true, I really am okay-hormonal, weepy, tired, but, caring about what i look like, and changing clothes might make him believe me!" 

    And, at the risk of pushing it, we suggested a pair of the softest jeans ever, and she admitted that they were the softest ever, and maybe "real pants" in her closet would not be a bad thing, so, she added those and went home, saying that she felt like they should go out to dinner now that she had changed her clothes!

    Fashion means different things to different people.  What makes you feel good is personal, and can change from day to day, but clothes do matter, they do make most people feel better.  We get to witness this every day.  And we are thankful.

     

     

     

    Sale Styling - Wow Mom & beyond

    Sale Styling - Wow Mom & beyond

    Sales are great, and sometimes for the life of me I am baffled by what ends up on sale, at Mom's the Word and elsewhere.  And, sometimes, I'm not;) When I was in college my mom used to send me these great items that "used to be $158 and were marked down to $9.99!  Can you imagine!?"  Sometimes.  Yes.  It made total sense that they were marked down that much.  Other times, I was baffled, and thrilled.

    Our Summer Sale is on now, and moms are having fun with it! Summer is here for 3-5 months in the US, depending upon where you live.  My favorite Sale Styling options today, which can and should be worn for years to come, not just with a bump:

    silk top+distressed whte jeans+cropped cardi=fab

     

    =HAPPY MOM!

    (Cardi is optional, just a nice addition which can be worn with everything. Styling tip: do not button the cardi-leave it open.))

    Personally I am the type of person who loves finding something at Goodwill for $5.99, but also will way full price for something that is way more, but that I love.  If I pay $5.99 and wear it once, then I'm good. If I pay over $150 then I know that I will wear it for years to come.

    When pregnant, you are almost guaranteed to wear everything that you have many many times in the course of a pregnancy, and beyond-even if beyond is only for the trip back down. All of the pieces above can truly be worn forever.

    Nursing?  Throw a cami under the silk top

    -lift silk top up, pull cami down, nurse discreetly, chic-ly.

    Happy summer to all!

     

     

    Top o' the Morning...

    Top o' the Morning...

    ...and the afternoon, and the evening.  These tops just make life that much easier and chic-from 9 weeks, to 9 months, to waaay beyond. There's at least one for everyone, most people grab more than that- then grab another every time they come in.

    Love the Nicole with it's Tiffany glass-esque floral and fly-away back detail.

    Throw her on over a black pencil skirt or a pair of jeans and you are dressed. Love that.

    Mandy is the go-to summer fave of working mama's everywhere.

    Ah, Grace!  Feminine and floral and out the door you go.

    Nisha is simple, sophisticated and elegant, with an exposed zipper on her back just for added style. 

    There isn't a closet out there that doesn't love her.

    Last but not least, this pintuck detailed, button front top sprayed with teeny hearts is the perfect splash of summer.  Over white jeans for summer?  Uh huh.

    While none of these pieces are officially "bumped" they all go the distance. 

    And, while not officially "nursing", grab a MOM cami, layer it underneath- lift top up, pull neck of cami down-discreet, chic nursing achieved! 

    Mom made happy. Morning, noon and night.

    It's a good way to start your week.

     

    Come Hither Baby: Nursing Chic

    Come Hither Baby: Nursing Chic

    In that way that our mission is to make moms look and feel fab, for 20 years we have realized that women want to be able to nurse with ease, BUT, we need to look good too!  What's the point of getting a top that allows for easy feeding if you don't want to leave the house in it because it is so terrifying? So, since our beginning we've found some work arounds. Some are officially designed for nursing, most are officially designed for fashion, and happen to allow easy access for easy feeding. Here are just a few of our nursing/not-nursing faves today Like this off shoulder top by Fifteen Twenty, it works with a bump, and is great for beyond.  It totally camouflages any post-partum bump; ready to nurse? Just throw on a white or blue nursing scarf and pull down the elastic neckline.  1-2-3. Easy.  Florals not your thing?  You must not know us well-it's available in black:)

     

         


         Or, throw this easy breezy, beautifully detailed (check out the neck and sleeve accents) tunic, tossed over one of our must-have cami or nursing cami with built-in bra?  Baby hungry?  Lift up hem of top, pull down cami, feed in chic, while totally covered.


    Feeling more casual, just walking the dog, but, let's face it, even then you might want to look a little put-togther?  alex&harry's Don't Sweat It top will become your total go-to.  Yes, you may even need it in two colors. (Our fantastic buyer, Emily, wears hers without the cropped tank under.)


    Nursing Chic is not an oxymoron. We've got you covered.  bump & beyond.  Want more ideas?  Just e-mail us with your social info or a photo and we'll send you suggestions:) Lovin' what we do.  Let us help you feel as amazing as you are.
