Stan Smiths

Oh my god, Parisians are stylish. Every lady I saw on our recent 3 day trip to Paris, appeared to be the most chic, beautiful, elegant, and hip person ever. It didn’t matter if they had a pretty face or skin, but their clothes and the way they carried themselves was so a la mode and fashionable. Instead of looking at the buildings or monuments, my eyes were always focused on the people. Hands down, the best people watching city in the world. In any case, it came down to the Parisian styles. AND DAMN, those ladies know how to look good! They are truly my fashion icons. I don’t want to be like Gwyneth Paltrow, instead I want to be like the average Parisian woman.

French chicness.

French chicness. I want to be the girl with the rolled jeans, top bun, striped shirt, and bag. She is cute — just her BACK alone is cute.

Camp Wolf

Denim + Pendelton = DREAM COME TRUE.

Camp Wolf

Born in Portland, Oregon, as of September 2013 (brand stinking new!) Camp Wolf was inspired by a love for Pacific Northwestern life and a passion for making cool clothes for cool kids. Everything is hand sewn and one-of-a-kind — recycled vests with Pendleton fabric — to create a cheery, hip, and stylish look for kids ranging from newborn to 5 years old. Original and unique!

Uniqlo / Suno

I love when designers collaborate with retailers to create special capsule collections, so when I found out that two of my favorite stores were working together to create a rad summer line, I ran IN THE RAIN to check it out. (Yep, used the word ‘rad.’) And hallelujah, it was worth it, because what I found was soooo beyond rad.

Suno, a funky, artsy, print and pattern centric clothing line created by Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty in 2008, teamed up with Uniqlo to create an inexpensive, colorful, and cool collection from May 20th (I am late) until the end of August. Pretty, floral, different, and affordable.

Birds view....not as fun to take these pictures when I am not pregnant, but a fun view from up top wearing these patterns together.
