Lusting
I’ve had more than a few conversations about things I’m lusting after the last few days so here’s a little collection of all I currently covet. A cashmere tunic, a slouchy knit hat (touque), a kick ass Canadian Made Diaper Bag, some crazy Japanese denim, a sweet necklace that might make me look more together, my fav stroller that I used to own and should have replaced, the camera bag I’m thinking of getting with some birthday money, and the boots I fell in love with after hearing about someone else’s trip to a Camper store. How I love nice things.

Trying to decide what to dress the kids in for our Christmas cards photoshoot this week with the lovely and talented crew at barebonephoto. I’m super excited but I’m not sure I have the right outfits. There are still a few days to think about it. Do you do photo cards? Whole family or just kids or pets?

I happened to be on Facebook yesterday when Chatelaine Mag popped onto my newsfeed with this: Hello, friends! Welcome to our fall fashion Facebook hour with our stylish host, our Asst. Fashion Editor, Tyler Franch. Send us your questions now!
So I asked: As a work at home mom, I tend to slide into yoga pants…which in turn make me feel sloppy (but oh-so-comfy). What would you recommend as the staples for an on-the-go-working-mom who spends as much time on the computer with clients as she does on the floor with a baby. I want to look a little more put together when I step out into the world.
And the response was: Lucky for you nothing is cooler right now then mixing in some athletic touches to your wardrobe. Find yourself a great pair of runners (Nike, New Balance, Lacoste… all street worthy right now). I would try a nice stretch denim or 4 pocket legging. A boxy knit could replace a T shirt or sweat-shirt and cozy up in some of falls best knits.
Then this was added a short while later: Black cigarette pants with a navy blue silk would look great! That colour combo for fall is huge.
So I did a little digging and created the combo above to remind me what kinds of things to look for next time I have the funds and opportunity to shop. (I added the boots, as I love, love them.) The Stokke stroller is just ’cause. And sadly, everything needs to work with every mom’s accessory, the diaper bag.
Wish I was showing off actual purchases. Sigh.
