Sometimes…its the most basic of pieces that are the best suited to get us through multiple seasons.  Such is the case with a simple military green cotton jacket.  We like this Hartford style from Elias & Grace for it’s refined and understand quality.  From seasonal transitions and through to next year this piece has the strength to be a winner.—CC

Call it a minor (okay major) penchant for cute and easy summer cover-ups, we immediately purchased this Old Navy stunner.  Fits the bill in every way, this cover-up is everything a good swim cover should be…sheer enough to see the swimsuit peeking though, a fun little pop of color pom pom detail, and just over $15!—CC

Upon perusing ShopBelle‘s spring collections, we were delighted to discover new French brand, Louise Misha.  Clothing as sweet as can be (many items already sold out), and we truly fell for their accessories.  This little clutch has proven to be a total win (for both mother/daughter)- as it recently came on a trip and worked just as well for packing hair bows and accessories as it did for looking chic with colored pencils out to dinner.  Lucky for us adults, Louise Misha also makes tote bags that are quentessentially summer cool for mama.—CC

Who wants to blend in when these camouflage pants from Zara have so much style.  Pair with a colorful hoodie like this bright yellow one or a simple chambray shirt for a more subdued look.  We love these sharp sneakers, but a casual slip-on works just as well.  Go with the loafer to prep it up or a pair of Van’s for a more hipster vibe.  –CC

How to wear a tutu or tulle skirt without looking super frilly or like you are playing dress-up – just add stripes and denim!  We love the look of this soft colored ballerina-like skirt combined with a marinier’s tee and jean jacket.  Add a sneaker for a sporty look or these metallic slippers for a little more polish.  –CC

With the kindness and love of my dear friend and thoughtful business partner Natalie, I was able to take a few months after the birth of my son Vaughan, to soak up every moment of this precious time.  And now that he is 3 months old, I am back with a renewed obsession of all things children’s fashion.  Not to mention a little first hand experience in dressing boys.  Just before my due date, not knowing whether I was having a boy or girl, I purchased a number of neutral pieces from Tane Organics–of which are some of my absolute favorites.  Worn as sets and as layers with other pieces and outfits, these soft and cozy knits are ideal.  Thank you to our loyal readers and beloved brands for the many kind notes and lovely gifts.  I am thrilled to be back…and with one more ‘chic child’ in tow.  xx, Christin
