It’s been soooo long since my last post! Where did all the time go? Things have been so different since moving from LA and so much has changed. After two solid years focusing every ounce of my efforts and every “spare” moment of my time designing, producing, marketing, selling & shipping my “Juliette Sunshine-Eco-friendly clothing for girls” collection; I decided to pull the plug and put everything on hold for a while. After moving to a new city and with so many changes in our lives, it really seemed like I needed to be fully present for my daughter & to focus on family for a while. The whole reason I had started the line in the first place was so I could work at home, be my own boss and spend more time with my daughter….
What I learned is that designing what you want to is very satisfying and building a company from scratch can be very empowering, but there is really no escape from the long hours and hard work that comes with being a head designer at a company, whether it’s for your own tiny business or a huge corporate company. At the end of the day, you are still a working Mom juggling two worlds & trying to make time for everything. But the truth is sometimes you just have to live it. You gotta do what you want to do when you have the chance to do it and just see how it flows, see how it goes….life is short, after all.
And in between all of this, I’ve been busy with someone new in our world- Kaiya’s little brother Kingston. He is such a cute little guy & it really has been amazing to have this time to build our family. But…… all this kid time has made me realize just how much I miss WORKING & I miss FASHION….so I started a new style inspiration blog for women called Rock Paper Sequins. I also thought it would be fun to relaunch the Juliette Sunshine blog and have it be the “girl version” of Rock Paper Sequins, focusing on style, trends & curated fashion inspiration for girls……
So here’s my first style post for 2014…..a few things I’m loving right now:
The Little Bohemian
Dress: Pink Chicken, Headband: Gap Kids, Sunglasses: Selima Optique for Crewcuts, Romper: Mara Hoffman, Sandals: J. Crew, Nail Polish : Piggy Paint, Guitar: Chasing Fireflies
