Working Mama

Chapman and I going over line sheets.

I have been wanting to write a bit about being a working mom on here for a while now. However, between balancing the two stores and the two kids, I haven’t really had the time. (Shocking, I know) I’m going to get into it more in another post but for now, here is a little look at one of my trips to NYC for womens market week. One of my many responsibilities within my shops is to do a lot of the buying which involves visiting showrooms and pouring over lookbooks and pictures. I really do love my job and being a working mom is something I am really proud of but it certainly isn’t easy. Then again, nothing worth having is.

These pictures were taken by my friend, Adriana of Just By Living, who came along for the trip back in September. If you want to see more, I have been blogging over HERE for the last few months about each individual showroom we went to.

That ‘s me, snapping photos.

I love Nicole Richie’s effortless style. Here is a great example of how she takes easy, comfortable pieces and puts a rock n roll spin on them.

Jacket. Sunglasses. Hat. Dress. Leggings.

How great is this look for a little dude? Anthony Kiedis looks pulled together and handsome as ever in a black blazer paired with a tee-shirt and sneakers.

Jacket. Shirt. Denim. Sneakers.
