Living With Great Style

Minimalist Momstyle

| Sacramento Street


Honestly, since I became a mother, I’ve had to let some things go. There are days when I don’t actually have a chance to shower or complete a workout. I try not to beat myself up – there will be plenty of time in the future. It’s amazing how frequently I look at my watch and it’s noon and I have not accomplished anything other than just spending time with Jackson.

While having a baby has changed the picture for me in a multitude of ways, my style has remained relatively the same – maybe just a bit more informal. You definitely need to embrace fabrics that can easily be washed when you have a baby in your life.


A great option that I gravitate to on a daily basis, are the clothes I have from Shop Buru. They all seem to work by being both comfortable and stylish at the same time. There are some pieces I’ve actually ordered multiples of!

Layer It: Simple Living

Layer It: Jet Setter | Sacramento Street


I find myself gravitating to clothes that are easy to wear and more importantly, comfortable. What I like about this particular grouping, are the darker colors (I’m definitely a neutrals girl) and the slim cut of the jeans paired with a looser top.

On days when I work at home and don’t have any meetings, I often wear a pair of tennis shoes. And if I need to run to meet someone, I can quickly change my shoes but keep the same outfit on.  Simple living at its best!

Greycork: Convenience Meets Good Design

| Sacramento Street

 

In my design business, I have always believed that less is more. I would rather have fewer pieces of quality than a house filled with throwaway furniture. Along with this, I find that buying from smaller companies that care about all of the details of their products can make the experience of buying items an enjoyable one. When I heard about Greycork, I knew their business model fit into my belief about design.

Greycork is a  online furniture startup producing quality furniture that brings cutting-edge design together with practical convenience. Both of the co-founders attended RISD and this is apparent in their products.

 

I have their desk and use it as my office desk. Each of these pieces arrive to your door in only five days. The top of the desk is a stunning solid wood that feels like satin. The metal legs of the table fold into the top for easy storage and it is easy to move from room to room.

Our First Family Getaway

WestVillage.NYC.FamilyPhotography-62

One thing I pondered about all the time while pregnant, was how having a baby would affect my ability to travel. Obviously, traveling with an infant or young child requires more planning when it comes to packing for a trip, but there is no reason not to start traveling from the very start. Perhaps because of my own upbringing where I always traveled with my parents to the ends of the globe, I wanted to continue this tradition of opening the world up to my children.

The first trip we took Jackson on was a few weeks ago prior to him turning three months old thanks to Bugaboo and Kid & Coe – to celebrate the launch of the new Bugaboo Bee 3. We ventured as a family from San Francisco to New York.  I was a bit nervous about the flight since Jackson and I would be flying solo, but in the end, I had nothing to worry about. It was smooth sailing for the entire flight. And while navigating the airport could have been difficult, I gate checked my Bugaboo Bee 3 and it was waiting for me when I disembarked. This meant I could have a place not only for Jackson, but also all the carry on items I brought.

Instead of staying at a hotel we had the pleasure of staying in a condo in the city through Kid & Coe.  We had a beautiful place in the Financial District that we could call home on our trip.  We dove into our adventures and Jackson did beautifully the entire trip.  We had great meals including one at Cluney Café and Momofuku Noodle Bar. Jackson slept in the Bugaboo Bee 3 during all of our meals. We took long walks through neighborhoods with visits to John Derian and ABC Carpet & Home. Our last morning we visited the memorial for 9/11 and were moved to tears.

I recommend having a stroller for trips with infants. They can nap while you take advantage of the sites.  Jackson was so comfortable in his little home-away-from-home.  And the fresh air always puts him in a good mood. He loves looking at the world around him (ok – honestly, he mostly loves to look at leaves on trees).

Ultimately, it was a perfect trip. Our little family of three had figured out just how fun traveling together can be!

Layer It: Go Lightly

Layer It : Go Lightly | Sacramento Street

 

Recently, I’ve seen a trend towards neutrals not only in home décor but also in clothing. I recently purchased a fawn cashmere jacket with raglan sleeves. Even though Spring has just arrived, I find myself wearing it with my white jeans and lighter colored blouses. I love the freshness and change from my usual black wardrobe.

While I’m spotting more white and neutrals, you still need to have something warm to pull it all together. Not quite sandal or tank top weather yet – even here in California. I suggest a warm sweater and perhaps a cute a pair of neutral sneakers. Finally, I know I plan to switch to a neutral leather bag for Spring and Summer – it always makes me happy to have a shift for seasonal change.

 

The Basics


1.) Chunky Trim Open Cardigan


2.) Stretch Toothpick Jean

The Layers


3.) Le Pliage Neo Small Tote


4.) Cremesheen Gloss


5.) 70’s Classic ID Bracelet


6.) Trainer Sneakers


7.) Gramercy Grand Bracelet Watch
