Harvey Faircloth Lookbook SS2014

Images: Harvey Faircloth


Allow me to introduce Harvey Faircloth, a new to me line, that is chock full of wardrobe basics, on trend separates, and very proper dresses.

It is a line that refuses to be easily labeled, but feels instantly comfortable. A juxtaposition of high/low, print/neutral, and classic vs. trend. In other words a little bit of something for everyone.

The 2014 Spring/Summer collection is "colored by a west coast mentality and east coast localities", in particular a "trip to Montauk, where an enduring waterfront community welcomes the seasonal arrival of city folk in search of tranquility". 

It all pretty much boils down to this flower print maxi for me- insanely cool pattern and bold colors in a refined and simple cut that would be perfect for a wedding or date night. Another juxtaposition, that I personally like to find in my closet.

So yeah, you don't magically drop all your baby weight after giving birth. Imagine that?! 

I wanted to post an outfit shot of the truth- still rocking my maternity jeans and a baggy t-shirt. And sneakers.

But you know what, I can deal with it. I have my hands full with Lady D. And truth be told, wardrobe options are limited with nursing. Not much glamorous about that.

The Mr, Lady D, and I made it out of the house this weekend for a stroll- to look for some post-partum friendly clothing options (no such luck, husband bought more than I did), and mainly to just practice with the car seat, stroller, and all this new gear that is so confusing. Need to enjoy these last days of summer! Gear and all.

I have been watching the glam-goings-on of NYFW from afar, babe in lap. I'll post a few of my faves this week, a little fashionanle inspiration for me for the season, and my shape up.




Special Delivery: Baby Daphne!

We had a very special delivery this week, baby Daphne decided to join us a little early (just like her mama....tis always better to be early than late).


Husband and I are learning many things, among them:

Poop happens; and it can actually be pretty funny. 

We have amazing friends, family, and neighbors, who have been generous, thoughtful, and supportive beyond measure.

Never underestimate the power of a casserole.

 Baby fashion is more important to me than NYFW.

We are so very lucky.


Back to the trenches, I'll report back on our experiments in sleep deprivation soon!
