“Sit” and be fit.

We love an exercise that you can do anywhere, with no equipment and gain fast results. Enter, the squat. This efficient movement is most well-known for it’s glute region benefits, but adding squatting into your workout or daily routine has more perks than you may think!

  • Prevents Injury.  They say, lift with your legs, not your back. The squat is a real-life movement that we think deserves extra attention to maintaining. We squat to get in and out of our desk chairs, to pick up our littles (to pick up anything!) to reach that gallon of milk on the bottom shelf. Exercising and strengthening this motion will help you avoid silly injuries that could occur doing everyday tasks. 
  • Full Body Benefits. The squat engages your core, calves, glutes, quads and hamstrings, making the squat a powerhouse movement that works several important muscles at once! EXTRA: Try a sumo squat (wider stance, toes pointed slightly out) to activate the inner thigh muscle more heavily!
  • Improves Your Balance. Fine tuning your core and major leg muscles will keep your body more stable as you move through your day. EXTRA: If your body weight squats are becoming easy (bravo!), try squats on a bosu ball. The soft surface and variability of movement will engage more muscles! 
  • Burns Calories. You may not burn the same as you would during a job, but don’t underestimate squats for their calorie burning benefit! EXTRA: Add a jump into your squat movement and really feel the burn. Remember to land softly and in one fluid motion. 


The key to gaining maximum benefits and preventing injury while performing any exercise, including squats, is to make sure you have correct form. See the image and link below for helpful tips!


If you need a good starting challenge, here’s a starting point! 


Happy squats ladies!



You Can’t Pour from an Empty Cup

They tell you in the airplane to always put on your oxygen mask before assisting others. That applies to in-flight emergencies and to motherhood.  

WellnessChallenge2018_mompriority (1)

You cannot give 100% of yourself to those that depend on you if you don’t have 100% to give. In order to assist others reliably, consistently and fully, you first have to make sure oxygen is flowing. This means more than just getting out of the house for an hour by yourself every month if chance allows. This means an intentional commitment to yourself. To take care of YOU each day, the same way that you take care of others and in the same way that you’d want your children to take care of themselves when they grow up. Today, we salute mother’s and encourage self-care. Whether you are a WFH Mom, SAH Mom, Career Mom, Foster Mom, Single Mom or Expectant Mom, remember to make yourself a priority. 

We love these words of wisdom and tips for self-care:

  • Exercise. Literally, get the oxygen flowing. Move at your pace, but move. Getting the blood flowing is sometimes all we need to push through a rut. 
  • Go out with friends. Interacting with adult humans is refreshing, amiright? Remember to engage with friends and other mommas in non-child focused ways too! Mom’s were women without children before they were mom’s…so most will have other passions and interests besides bedtime routines, organic baby food and the state of the art diaper bag insert. 
  • Dress to impress [yourself]. We obviously cannot promote this tip enough! Sometimes putting on an amazing pair of shoes, jeans, earrings or your favorite cashmere sweater can make all the difference in your day.  Never underestimate the power of a good outfit to elevate your mood and confidence. 
  • Go to sleep! You know how your kiddos are irritable when they don’t get enough sleep? Don’t be fooled. That happens to adults too.
  • Eat well. We promote this always, for anyone, and think it really boosts energy and mood. Eat colorfully and be fruitful! 
  • Date night. Don’t forget to nurture your relationship with your partner! Parenting is difficult for both parties and life gets hectic. Scheduling a time to date is important. 
  • Do you. What did you like to do before you had kids? Don’t forget that our baby birds will fly the nest one day and your role as mother bird will look a bit different. 
  • Let go of guilt. Easier said than done, absolutely. Rest assured though, making time for yourself is not a selfish act. It’s a selfless commitment to ensuring that you are ready to care for the people that depend on you, when they need you the most. 
  • Learn Something New. Keep your mind sharp, your confidence high and your horizons open! Our babies are constantly learning new skills and embarking on new life experiences – we should do the same! 
  • Keep a gratitude journal. Being mindful of your everyday life can help boost your mood and embrace the less-fortunate things that may have happened that day. Studies show being more aware and grateful for the good things that happen each day can lower anxiety and depression. 

Every woman’s self-care routine will look different based on their needs and passions. The important thing is that you make yourself a priority!

Suck it up. Drink your water.

Everyone feels the effects of Monday. One way to fight it, drink more water! 💦 Drinking the proper amount of aqua (starting with a nice cool 16oz glass each morning) helps boost energy, fight mood swings, banish bloating (hallelujah!) and flush out toxins inside and out (healthy kidney, healthy skin!). We’ll drink to that!


Looking to heighten a specific benefit of drinking water? Add in some nutrients! Infusing your water with a combination of fruits and vegetables will punch up the powerhouse effects of staying hydrated.



Start today! A healthy habit takes 21 days to become a routine, and there’s no better day to start. Do you need a vessel of motivation? We have a plethora of gorgeous, stylish S’well bottles, perfect for making your water challenge chic and cool. 

Happy hydrating!

S’well // Chic Hydration + The Perfect Gift!

In an era of innovative fitness trends, changing diet fads and a constant influx of athleisure fashion, there’s one variable that stays constant throughout – HYDRATION. Whether you are into yoga, running, cycling, crossfit, lounging, teaching or mom-ing, S’well’s stainless steel bottles are perfect for keeping you hydrated and on-trend. These vessels are seen on the desks of women at Vogue and in the hands of celebrity career moms such as Jennifer Garner. Plus, on the heels of Earth Day, we think that this reusable, super-chic bottle is worthy of a highlight!

S’well was founded with a call-to-action to lower the number of plastic bottles on earth. This woman-owned company (one of the fastest growing in the country! A $100 million-dollar brand) thought if she could make a water bottle as chic as it is functional, more people would be inspired to put down the plastic, disposable bottles and use S’well. Eight years later, and S’well is making big dents in the number of bottles NOT reduced to waterways and landfills. 

Besides boasting eco-friendly goals and sleek style, S’well can brag about these patented functionalities: 

  • Keeps cold beverages cold for 24 hours
  • Keeps hot beverages hot for 12 hours
  • Boasts a triple-wall Therma-S’well exterior that holds in condensation
  • Constructed from BPA-FREE 18/8 Stainless Steel

Swell_SS18_Social8FullSizeRender (5).jpg^ The Liberty London floral fabrics are iconic. Bright, beautiful and intricately rendered. We think the Liberty S’well collaboration is perfect for Spring…and Mother’s Day! Fill with water, lemonade or your favorite protein shake…and head to the beach, lake or studio.

FullSizeRender (5)^ The Roamer took a giant step forward in the S’well brand. This large growler-sized bottle is perfect for road trips, day trips, beach days (don’t forget the perfect beach bag!) and all-day sporting events with the littles. With an impressive 40 oz capacity, the Roamer still shares the same functionality as it’s classic S’well siblings. Keep yourself ultra-hydrated or go ahead and share your beverage with others! 

swellsocial_angelfoodeeab590f03ff8051d3b6419ef552357fOne of our favorite summer-time uses of S’well? COCKTAILS, of course! The 25 oz bottles hold an entire bottle of wine. We suggest you test that out, or try these staff drink picks:

MG_3547-copy55caab25695cfa6ff4c0b60da625f923.png^ Put your craft beer, prosecco or mixed drink into a larger S’well or Roamer and bring some S’well Tumblers along for sharing!

(Jump)suits you.

After an endless winter with layering a necessity, the JUMPSUIT is a breath of fresh spring air. This one-and-done wardrobe essential will ease us right into warm weather with its effortless, on-trend appeal. And now more than ever we are seeing the jumpsuit in a variety of styles, from casual to elegant, cotton to silk.  This season’s jumpers feature breezy, relaxed silhouettes with flirty necklines, flattering waistlines, fashion-forward styling and a retro thread woven throughout. 

Here are some new favorites that you can shop in-store or online


^ We love this classic striped linen romper with button-front, drawstring waist and ankle-length hem. Pair it with a flat or heeled wedge sandal and denim jacket

SHORTS ROMPER by Pam and Gela

^ This super cool tencel shorts romper features a sexy tie-back detail, side stripe and “tribe” patch. Casual and cool, pair this one-piece-wonder with a slide sneaker or sleek black sandal. 


^ We are in love with this effortless cotton slub jumpsuit. A sleek black tone is the perfect pairing with this relaxed, oh-so-comfortable silhouette and fit. Make a minimalist statement with a simple flat sandal. Give it an athleisure vibe with a suede slide sneaker.  The Aubriella Jumper is an ideal travel companion too! 

LAMAR by Amanda Uprichard

^ For the many events this party season, we suggest the Lamar! This silk jumpsuit in a gorgeous electric blue is elegant, refined and so comfortable! Dress down for Sunday brunch with a denim jacket and leather flats or adorn with a statement necklace, cashmere ruana and high block heel for an evening out! 


^ Like wearing pj’s. The Emi jersey romper is perfect for running errands, trips to the beach, or lunch with the girls when the weather gets really warm. This flirty little romper has a natural casual sporty vibe when paired with sneakers but can be worn with just about any shoe! Bonus – we love the budget-friendly price of this summer staple! 


^ An edgy boho chic jumpsuit by the brand that does edgy boho chic the best. This vintage black one-piece coverall features a low arm, zip front, casual cord drawstring waist and large front pockets with grommet detail. Pair with a tank, or wear over your swimsuit.

Screen Shot 2018-04-18 at 2.27.53 PM

^ We can’t think of anyone who does sleek utilitarian better than Frame. The Le Service Jumpsuit is a military-inspired relaxed fit twill jumpsuit with sexy androgynous appeal.

FARRAH by Citizens of Humanity

^ The Farrah. 70’s inspired, full of classic retro style. A full coverage jumpsuit ideal for chilly days when all you need is denim, head to toe. 


^ Effortless, timeless and feminine. This linen blend jumpsuit features a foldover surplice neckline that adds a flirty and flattering element we can’t resist. 

W6053-614-123_PROVINCETOWN_01_5865b3a4-4839-49ba-9dd6-0f2418138b68 (1)

^ Summer essential. Bella Dahl designs the perfect strapless jumpsuit with a simple tied waist. We love a comfortable slide sandal with this romper. 


^Overalls share the same fundamental style as a jumpsuit yet add the ultra classic and casual appeal of denim. This fitted version by McGuire has a stunning silhouette and we love the thin feminine straps that cross over the back. 

Happy spring. Happy shopping.

Let’s adDRESS party season…

Proms, graduations, weddings, bridal showers…the dress code is: the dress.  In an era where anything goes and fashion is art, there has never been a better time to flaunt your unique style. And finding the perfect dress for you should be part of the fun experience, especially if you go into your search with a few things in mind. Let us help you find YOUR dress for party season! 

The Musts of Dress Shopping (from wedding-guest to weekend brunch):

  1. Feel comfortable. Comfort is key to feeling at ease at a formal occasion.  In this anything-goes style shift, discomfort in the name of fashion or fitting-in is unnecessary!
  2. Feel confident and beautiful. If a dress doesn’t make you feel either of these things, then it’s not your dress. Keep shopping! Be-YOU-tiful.

Finding the Right Fit.  Knowing and embracing the best way to showcase your unique proportions and assets is important when looking for the right dress for your event. Some professional suggestions for your shape (pictures/examples below):

  1. Rectangle/Straight. Equal width proportions from hip to shoulder. Choose a-line, or sheath. Draping and gathering at the waist adds curvature and interesting low necklines add dimension to your stature. Avoid a simple shift. 
  2. Hourglass. Equal width hips/shoulders, narrow waist. Curvy. Wrap-style dresses flatter your small waistline. A fit-and-flare shape will show off your tiny waist and feminine hips. Fitted dresses will accentuate your curves and elongate your stature. Don’t embellish too heavily at the bust or hip with draping, gathering, beading or high necklines. 
  3. Pear/Triangle. Narrow at the shoulders, gradually widening through the hips. Look for detail on the top! Cowl draping, cap sleeves, boatneck, sweetheart neckline, off-shoulder sleeves. A bottom that fits through the hips and flares mid-thigh will show off your curves and even your proportions. 
  4. Apple/Inverted Triangle. Smaller through the hips, widening through bust/shoulder. Add volume to the bottom and define your waist. Long, flowing maxi dresses can add proportion to a smaller bottom half. An a-line or fit-and-flare will add dimension to the waist and hips and balance out a wider shoulder. Avoid bold prints or embellishment at the top/neckline. 

Other considerations:

  1. Budget. Enough said. 
  2. Style, of course. One of my favorite parts of dress shopping is finding a dress that really exudes my personal style. Traveling and dressing up? Look into the local vibe. You may find that you want to lean towards your destination’s more bold look (Think Cancun) or a more buttoned-up look. (Think Connecticut)
  3. Matching your date…or not matching your date! 
  4. Weather. Consider the venue, air conditioning, weather changes, time of day, etc. Invest in a cashmere ruana to keep bare shoulders warm when the sun goes down and dancing stops. Don’t forget a pair of metallic flats for walking outside or tired party feet! 
  5. Color. Choose a color (or print!) that works for your skin tone, style, and event.
  6. Accessories. Maybe your dress is understated elegant but you wear killer shoes! Find a classic and elegant dress that will beautifully show-off your coveted accessory…and easily transition to another event! 
  7. Undergarments. Dare we mention unmentionables? From knee-to-shoulder shape-wear to the slimmest of seam-free intimates, you don’t want to notice what you’re wearing under your dress, so it’s a consideration not to go unnoticed. 
  8. Dress code. Black tie? Cocktail? Graduation little-white-dress? Keep in mind any strict guidelines for your event. 

Trends we are seeing for the 2018 party season:

Light hues. From the popular blush pink to crisp white. The little white dress is perfect for graduation, Sunday brunch or  a bridal shower! 


Straight or Apple Shape…These pretty cap-sleeves and bell a-line skirt will cinch in the waistline and create an even shape on top and bottom. Shop the Double Faced Linen Dress by Theory.
Straight or Triangle Shape? This belted waist will add dimension to your waist. A long blouson sleeve adds volume to your top half and a straight skirt won’t accentuate your hip level assets.
Inverted Triangle or Straight Shape…Are you less endowed at the bust but have collarbones or shoulders to show off? This breezy strapless shift is an effortless way to go strapless.
Hourglass, Inverted Triangle or Straight…This simple silhouette has just enough flare at the bottom to add dimension to the hips and a simple, low neckline to add length to a wider shoulder and dimension to a rectangle shape.
Shop the Black Eyed Susan Dress

Flounces and Florals. Nothing says feminine like a delicate silk ruffle or perfect floral print. These pretty styles can go from brunch to cocktail-hour effortlessly with a few accessory changes! 

Straight Shape…all of this detail, flouncing and interesting lines will add dimension to your straight stature.
Inverted Triangle Shape…this pretty flounce will add volume to the hips and a simple pretty v neckline will elongate and compliment your collarbone.
Pear/Triangle Shape…The perfect combination can be found in this dress by Gretchen Scott. A relaxed straight silhouette with ruffled neckline and sleeves will balance a smaller shoulder with wider hips.
Straight or Hourglass….A wrap waist, a-line skirt and low v-neckline are all perfect to accentuate or add interest to your shape.



Floor length and flawless. The gown is still a go-to for prom and black-tie. This season’s silhouettes are sleek and classic, with bold necklines, statement slits and pops of color. 


Apple/Inverted Triangle…this beautiful blue maxi with flowing a-line bottom will accentuate your hips and cinch in your waist. This ultra interesting neckline and narrow strap draw attention in from a wider shoulder.
Inverted Triangle/Apple Shape…This pretty and simple neckline, wrap waist and flowing maxi will even out your proportions!

Jumpsuit. Comfortable, confident and cool, a silk jumpsuit is the gown’s synonym this season. 

Rectangle/Straight Shape…we have your jumpsuit!
