Feminism: The Media’s “F” word

Sorry, bloggy friends, for not doing much fashion these days.   My “paying gigs” are keeping me busier than Momaha mugever.

I did want to re-post a piece I did for Momaha.com today though, because I think it’s incredibly relevant and  incredibly important. (Read here)  Please take a few minutes to read the blog, and even see what Miss Representation is all about.

Thanks, as always, for reading LBS and I’ll be back soon with some fashion inspiration.

Bon Weekend!

Which Style Type Are You?

Momaha mugI ran across a fun Luckymag.com article about the new style types.

Are you a social media peacock? Perhaps your style leans more toward festival fiend or Mad Men extra.

Which one are you?

My paying gig: Maternity fashion for the modern mamma

So I haven’t made a formal announcement as far as littleblacksweats.com is concerned, but this post may tip you bloggy friends off to the obvious.

I am happy to report that my husband and I are expecting another baby boy this summer (our third!)  At the time this blog was published, I was just 13 weeks along, but am on the verge of hitting the 16-week mark on Friday – 4 months down, an eternity to go, it seems!

Maternity clothes are my new reality.  So what does a momma-to-be-again wear when warmer weather hits and pup tents are out of the question?  Ive put together some fun options for day-to-night, casual weekends, and beach or pool time.

Check them out here!

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Darla Sandal

Is it summer yet?

I’m ready for sandals.  How about Kate Spade Darla Sandals to be exact?  These are absolutely the cutest with all the colors of the rainbow and natural-colored pantent straps.  Three patent straps that I absolutely love.  This is a great update from similar sandals last summer and I love the new look.

I know we’ve got a long way to go, but I’m needing to pump my collection of cute wedges, flip flops, maxi dresses, handbags and accessories.

Why?  Because I will be spending the summer (all or most of it) pregnant.  Yep, you heard it here… and here for a twist on the news… that this girl will be putting high fashion on hold in favor of roomy (and tent-like) clothing.  But I digress…

Let’s just take a look and a drool at these pretties!

Back to School

I’m sending my first born to school in 6 days.
He’s excited.  I get knots in my stomach just thinking about it.
He’s ready, but I can’t believe he’s going to be gone all day, every day.  He’s been with me for almost 6 years… my buddy. my associate.  my Tomas the Train enthusiast.  my personal shopper.  my lunch date. my baby.
So, in honor of my little guy’s first day of school, I’ve put together a fun collection of “Back to School” items that any girl could show off — in class or otherwise!

Daily Covet: Personalized & Preppy Outdoor Entertaining

I love outdoor entertaining.  And it just so happens that our outdoor space happens to be the most perfect part of our living space.

Our red market umbrella and red Adirondack chairs, along with grass green iron table and dining chairs, pop against a bricked-in patio and plenty of normally lush landscaping.  Fun dishes, and of course table linens, are also imperative for great outdoor fêtes.

I decided to look for outdoor dining pieces on BoatmanGeller.com, and I couldn’t help bug oggle a few all of them!

But if you love anything personalized, check out the most amazing selection of fun prints.  The selection of stationary, melamine, desk accessories, phone accessories and more are in all in one place.

Take a gander at these scrumptious pieces and patterns…

Aaaannnd, a dear friend of mine runs a booming business called Mommy Wisdom, where you can order some of Boatman Geller’s cutest products!
