Daily Covet: Rag & Bone Dre in Bradford Jeans

It’s time for jeans. New Jeans.

Last year, I was two days out from giving birth and still in the “little black sweats” phase of post-pregnancy. I wasn’t even thinking about wearing my old jeans… much less close to fitting into them.

This year, I’m still a few pounds away, but hey it’s only July (almost August.) But there is an end in sight and to celebrate I’d love to invest in a hot, new pair of I’ll-look-fabulous-most-days-in-these-jeans jeans.

I have a few pairs of fab jeans already… a really, lovely worn-in-perfectly pair of Joe’s boot-cut jeans. I have two great pairs of dark skinny jeans. And I also have a great pair of low rise, frayed jeans, which are the original Seven for All Mankind when they weren’t made in China… buuuut, I might be a little further from wearing those.

I do not, however, own a cool pair of boyfriend jeans with the perfect fade. That’s why these Rag & Bone jeans are perfect for this girl on the hunt for jeans!

But honestly, jean schmean, I’d take just about anything Rag & Bone has to offer! #newfavedesigner

Sheer lipstick? Check.

Hand cream? Check.

Sunscreen? Check.

A pretty, silver pen? Check.

Kleenex? Check.

An upgraded cell phone with a new case? Check.

Everyday sparkly studs? Check.

What more does a girl need? What’s in your bag that you just can’t live without?

My paying gig: Back-to-school fashion under $25

Bloggy friends, I’ve been struggling with my work/life/blog balance these days. Sorry for the infrequent posts. Momaha mug

But for those of you with kids, nieces, nephews or just a penchant for children’s fashion, here is my blog today for Momaha.com.

 

Daily Covet: Chloé vs. Marc Jacobs Crossbody Bag

I have been wanting the perfect crossbody bag for a long time.

I don’t need a small bag often, but sometimes my outfit just calls for something somewhat casual, but still polished enough to wear for a night out.

This Chloé Marcie crossbody bag has been on my want list for a long, long time. Sadly, at this price point, it’ll probably stay there much longer.

This great Marc Jacobs bag, however, is far more reasonable. I love the detailing on the closure and while, I don’t love it in black, I do adore it in this bright blue color. And since I wear so much black and navy anyway, it’d be great to have a pop!

Daily Covet: A Pergola

You might find this so random, but today I am coveting a Pergola.

We had the lovliest time on the back deck of some friend’s of ours last night. They had little round lights outlining the deck, which provided the perfect amount of ambient lighting for late night cocktails on a hot, summer night.

We too, have a fabulous outdoor space for entertaining and while it’s practically perfect in every way, I have this vision for a gorgeous pergola to semi-cover our patio.  I want it to be strung with little white lights and maybe even have a ceiling fan to keep us cool when it gets beastly hot in August.

I also want it to have the same ivy growing in and around it just like I have crawling up the walls of my home.

What an outdoor paradise in the canopy of tiny lights and lush greenery!

This one is absolutely gorgeous and is like adding square footage to your living space. But maybe too-muchy like being in your family room.

I love the lights and the chandalier, presumably with votives for extra mood lighting.

But this space is absolutely UH-MAZING! I must admit however, that it may not be just the pergola that has me so in love… it might also be the stone patio and the table for dining al fresco.

Daily Covet: Marais for goop Open Toe Sandals

Named for the famous (and one of my favorite) neighborhoods in Paris, these Marais sandals for goop.com are the absolute cutest!

I know I’ve been posting shoes like crazy, but that’s what happens when you can’t fit into any of your clothes when your baby is almost a year old… but who’s counting? C’est la vie.

I love the cutaway tops and the almost mirror-like silver color. And unlike all the big, wide, hooker-y looking straps – even on couture shoes, I know – I love the itty bitty ankle straps instead.

Also, I’d like to point out that for several years, there were barely any shoes that I was loving.  So imagine my surprise when all of these gorge shoes came around – and they are wearable with everything!

Daily Covet: Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers

There’s nothing bigger in footwear than slip-ons at the moment.

That’s why these Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers are on my must-have list.  Well, that’s not the only reason. Carrying bags, baby, keys and more out the door is tough to do – which only leaves one hand to put your shoes on… if that!

Sam Edelman’s go-with-anything sneakers would be perfect since I can’t wear flip-flops all fall and winter too. I’m wild about these sneakers and would love to try them on with denim skimmers, sweatshirt dresses and even shorts!

Where can’t these Beckers in such a cute animal print go?
