Mommy And Me Swimwear… What could be cuter?

style By June 28, 2017 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Summer is finally here! And it’s most definitely our favorite season. My family spends a ton of time getting wet–whether via sprinkler, pool, pond, lake, or water park. We practically live in our bathing suits from the moment it hits 65 degrees until September. And I have to admit, I have a thing for cute bathing suits. Maybe more than a thing… an expensive obsession?!? Last year, my one-year-old daughter had about six bathing suits. And I’m a sucker for anything retro.

But this year, I’ve found a way to step it up. Not just adorable bathing suits… matching bathing suits! Enter Moderne Child Shoppe and their super stylish Mommy and Me swimwear line. They sent me a pair of swimsuits for my daughter and I to sample and we fell in love!

The New Summer Mom Style is Chic not Shabby.

Summer Mom Style is Chic, not Shabby

GEAR, style, Uncategorized By May 29, 2016 Tags: , , , 1 Comment

Spring has certainly sprung across North America, but in my wardrobe—not so much. B.K. (Before Kids), I prided myself on keeping up with seasonal trends, but these days it takes an intervention before I realize that I’m still sporting maternity leggings and ratty nursing tanks. Rather than wait to be accosted by the proverbial Stacey and Clinton, I decided to get proactive and consult with some of my most fashionable friends, followed by an insane amount of “research” in the Pinterest hole. The good news? I’ve decided to share everything that I learned and thus have compiled this season’s ‘Must-Haves for Moms.’ That’s right—here are the crib notes on summer mom style.

beauty, GEAR, Shopping Reviews, style By May 6, 2016 Tags: , , , , No Comments

We were so excited to get the FIRST taste of the summer trends by celebrity stylist Lara Backmender whose clients include—wait for it—Demi Lovato, Hayden Panetiere, Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue, Lucy Hale, Miley Cyrus, Naomi Watts, Nina Debrev, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlet Johannson, Taylor Swift, Whitney Port and Zoey Deschanel. Seriously, I had to list them all.

What we want from summer style is easy, fresh, and versatile (mix-and-match is a must). Lara styled five outfits for attendees of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and used key, comfy pieces from Hanes to complete the outfits. And they meet all of our criteria.

It’s not surprising that two days after the Oscars everyone still buzzing about the display of fashion on Hollywood’s biggest night. What may be surprising is the lady getting the most attention is none other than Jenny Beavan, who took home the trophy for Best Costume Design. The twist is it’s not her award-winning designs from Mad Max Fury Road that has the internet all atwitter; rather it’s a dust-up about her choice to wear an off-the-rack faux-leather jacket and slacks to what is considered a traditional black-tie and formal frock event.

Luxury Paris Fashion Line X-TN Toasts Spring

FAM, kids By February 26, 2015 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

As we dream of spring flowers and fresh fashions, the UrbanMommies team became slightly obsessed with Parisian designer, Xuan-Thu Nguyen (X-TN for short). Well – pretty much everything Parisian, but still. Nguyen is sensitive and layered in her personality and her designs reflect this in every way. She has spent the long winter months dreaming up new couture and pret-a-porter collections to celebrate the rebirth of the natural world. Master of details, even those invisibly small to the casual observer, X-TN’s spring line is bursting with imagination, creating a palpably interesting dynamic between simplicity and sophistication.

There’s luxury and fun in each piece. A daring stitch here, distinct embroidering there. All of her work reflects her personality. Nguyen is equal parts dreamer, designer, and craftsman and the spring line contains the elements of all three traits in its DNA. Alive with playful prints, and grounded with chic design it’s made to work seamlessly with clothing from all corners of the spring/summer wardrobe.

373731-2998Xuan-Thu Nguyen opened her own boutique in Paris in 2005 inserting herself firmly into the epicenter of the fashion world. In July 2008, she tried her hand at couture fashion on the world stage: Paris Fashion Week. Over the past five years X-TN has expanded from a single boutique to worldwide distribution.  All luxury garments are born in either Paris or her native Holland, and have retained her unique touch and attention to detail as they now find themselves in haute boutiques around the globe and online.
