A Bag We Covet

The other night we saw this bag on our friend Becky's table. It sat up tall (love a not-floppy bag), it was beautifully constructed (loved all the leather detailing),...

repetto

Ballet Flats

Our friend Rory just told us about these shoes she found..."My dirt poor man's Repetto pumps, $19 at Joe Fresh." What we love about this shape is that they have...

sweats

Soft Pants!

My friend's little son currently refuses to wear anything with a proper waistband, he only wants what he affectionately calls "soft pants." I can relate. While I...

maca bracelets

Wrist Bling

Last night I had dinner with my friend Maca, who had some nice wrist bling action going on. I like how she had two wide bracelets (one a cuff), and then some beaded...

Neon Lanyards

Okay, we know, it's a little late to be posting about shell necklaces, but we are just getting through our Momfilter emails, and spotted this one from reader Linda...

tom espadrilles

Cute and Comfy

Our friend Jodi Levine had on these Tom's—a style we hadn't seen before. (They're called the "bimini".) She said they are super comfortable, and pointed out how...

Wrist Bling

Some people just have a knack for layering bracelets and cords on their wrists. And while I myself feel self-conscious beyond two bracelets, I love the way it looks....

Summer Bag

Once it hits days that are consistently above 80 degrees, I put away any heavy leather purse, and only want to carry something lightweight--usually that means in...

owen embarrassed

Style Wars

It’s totally okay that my ten year-old son is embarrassed by me. It’s the normal state of the universe. It’s, like, my job to embarrass him. But somehow,...

Sound Investment

I recently had the very good fortune to travel to New York City for the annual James Beard Foundation's award ceremony. In my industry, it is the penultimate recognition,...

Summer Shorts

I picked these drawstring linen shorts up at Old Navy last week, and they are really great. They're loose and easy for hot weather, but they also have a nice shape...

Abejas

Summer Staple

We're loving these leather flip flops from the Abejas boutique in Houston, TX . They're pricier than the average rubber variety, but they last longer than one season,...

pants

Pants We Love

I got these pants from Lisette L a while back, and I have to say, I was super skeptical: they were positioned as stretch pants that gave you a flat stomach. I tried...

Uniqlo Visit

I was just in the Uniqlo flagship store, and was very impressed with their kids' selection. First of all, in case you don't know about Uniqlo, it is a Japanese store...

mattstyle

Dad Style

We have always had a hard time with that hipster dad trying to recapture his youth with a skateboard and the t-shirt over the waffle long sleeve tee. We love Matt...

Buyover

Yes it is nice to silently appreciate and value the reliable workhorse products we use on any (or every) given day, but one of my tasks today made me want to shout...

Bright Rules

Although navy, black, grey, and camel are what we find ourselves wearing on a daily basis, today our friend and colleague Jen reminded us that a shock of bright...

cynthia

Party Pants!

We ran into our friend Cynthia Rowley last night, and fell in love with her leggings, which she told us are pretty much like a Spanx/legging combo. They're called...

Swants We Love

These are a perfect hybrid of sweats and cargo pants. They're unisex, and we got them at Uniqlo, in the black/grey combo, and the army green/grey combo. They're...

clara striped bean

Family Uniform

This striped shirt from LL Bean is one of my favorite things. I've had mine for about 10 years (the white with navy stripes) and my daughter just got a used one...

target top

Heat Wave Top

Contributor Nadya Sagner sent us in this great summer suggestion: "This top from Target is super cute, easy breezy, and looks WAY more expensive than $22.99."...

redtunic

Fantastic Tunic

Our friend Jen Stocker created a fantastic new line of tunics (and napkins and pillows) called Sail to Sable. We're particularly crazy for this red with bright blue...

allergy bag

Allergy Bags

Amelia was only a year old when her father and I discovered she had food allergies. At that point, it was entirely our responsibility to make sure we always had...

Summer Shoe

I was given these espadrilles for a Mother's Day present, and they're the first pair of espadrilles I can actually wear, in comfort. Here's why: they have a rubber...

Summer Sandal

I recently found some sandals that I love and have worn them around Boston with no blisters, baby carrying and all! Steven Alan carries them, so they have his stamp...

zara bag

Bag We Covet

We saw our friend Jessica with this bag last week...and both stopped her as she was walking by to ask her about the bag. We couldn't believe it when she told us...

uggs

Cute Uggs

The tyranny of the Ugg...kills me. There should be a law against kids' shoes that over $75—none of us would buy an expensive pair of shoes we knew we would only...

rachelcomeyboots

Booties We Covet

Our friend Jen was wearing these boots (hers were in grey but I couldn't find them) from Rachel Comey the other day. Perfect toe shape--not too pointy, not too round--and...

becca's vans

Cool Slip-ons

Our friend Becca had these Vans on the other day, and besides them looking really cute, they seemed substantial enough to run around in all day (not like an espadrille)...

eyebob1

Eyeglasses

Reading glasses. Yup, like clockwork, I found it difficult to read some of the fine print on the kids' toy manuals once I turned 40. I have been meaning to buy a...

Indigo Girls

My husband ordered an indigo dye kit so that he could transform a white denim coat that he found he never wore into a year-round staple. He turned his project...

That Dad

Bill Powers lives in NYC, and is the father of two girls, Kit and Gigi. He's a co-owner of the Lower East Side Half Gallery, a co-founder of online art gallery Exhibition...

watch scarf bracelet

DIY Chic

My husband, who is an avid watch collector, emailed me this picture.  I love the idea of replacing a watch band on a chunky watch with a little scarf. So chic!

cargo opener

Target Find

I know everyone is excited about the Calypso line at Target (and we've heard from our Facebook followers, that the kids' stuff is even better quality than the women's),...

Perfect Tote

I recently got this fantastic leather tote as a gift and used it as my carry-on when I traveled to Mexico with my family a few weeks ago. It weighs almost nothing--yet...

Love this Cuff

A good friend gave me one of these Giles and Brother cuffs. I love that it's kind of tough yet still feminine and that it works with almost everything I wear. I'm...
