Summer in the City-Mother Daughter Style

Happy Friday! The kids and I have been enjoying this summer so much so far! Between the beach, pools, sprinklers, outdoor concerts & gorgeous public parks, there’s tons of things to do & see here in the city.

When my daughter and I happen to have a rare free day together that’s just the two of us, we like to do a “girls day” by going out to brunch in Brooklyn, heading to Soho for mother daughter shopping or stopping by the park to enjoy some time in nature.

Here are some pics of our latest adventures & what we wore……Happy Summer!

A MOTHER DAUGHTER BRUNCH DAY

Right now we are loving cool & comfortable summer dresses in bright colors & fun floral prints…

5 Things to Love this Summer

#1) Flip Flops:  One of my favorite places to be on Earth is the beach! I just love the sun, the sand, the ocean….While just about any beach will do for me, what’s so fun is just getting to wear something cool & casual and when the weather gets hot, I love to put on cute flip flops. Here are my current matching favorites for Mama & Mini’s

     #2) Sundresses:  When the sun is out and the heat is strong, the best thing to wear is a great sundress! Here are some of my current favorites for a chic summer look:

    Emil dress by MISA / Capri dress by PAMPELONE / Off the shoulder dress by TESSORA

    All girls dresses by Zara

       #3) Ice Cream:   If someone asks me what my favorite food is, the first thing that comes to mind is ice cream! What is your favorite flavor?

      this is one of the best ice cream places I have been to in NYC : Morgenstern’s

      #4) Outdoor Parks: With or without kids, its so fun to spend time in public parks, especially in summer. NYC has some of the best parks & one of my current favorites is by Dumbo in Brooklyn

      Summer is Here

      It’s here…..Finally it’s summertime! School’s out & the warm weather is in, let the sunny & carefree days and the late nights begin….

      This season Juliette Sunshine was re-vamped & we worked on some fun new collections for older girls in sizes 5-12. There’s been so many changes since we moved up to Northern California from Los Angeles, added a new kid to our family & started a whole new life, but I’m so happy to be focusing on the collection again.

      fabricsI’m excited about the new Juliette Sunshine and lately always bursting with new ideas, new concepts, new plans…. there’s so much to do, so much to create, but only so many hours in each day to actually do it! …..so just trying to embrace the work, taking things step by step and just doing as much as can be done right now…..

      Juliette Sunshine Summer 2015 was inspired by tropical vacations, pool parties, garden flowers, retro Palm Springs & Mod Pop stars….Here is some of what inspired the new collections:

      Meet Me In Palm Springs

      Just got back from a fun filled family trip to Palm Springs. I love this place so much that one of the new Juliette Sunshine Spring/Summer ’15 collections drew inspiration from the bright colors, retro vibe and tropical heat of the Palm Springs desert. I’m finally getting ready to debut the new collection & new website I’ve been working on the past few months.

      Here is a sneak peak from the new collection & some photos from our trip for inspiration. We will now be offering hand crafted & limited edition dresses, t-shirts & skirts in Girls sizes 6-12.

      Hope you have a beautiful day!

      3) Throwback- not sure why, but totally thinking about the 90’s lately…who remembers these girls? I SO wanted to be like Naomi or Christy….they always seems so strong & so beautiful. Such a cool photo & looks like it was shot in Soho where I grew up.

      4) The Met Gala Red Carpet 2014- these are my favorite dresses seen at the Met Gala…I loved all the subdued colors mix with the occasional pop of a bright yellow, fuschia or red.

      Getting Inspired: It’s a Brand New Year

      It’s a brand new year & change is in the air! New year, new beginnings…..and busy, busy, busier than ever! So much to do in such a short time. In the middle of spring ’11 production and getting ready to ship the new collection. This season is very bright, very happy, very fun! More fun, whimsical & vintage inspired designs are set to hit the stores very soon!

      At the same time, we are in the final stages of Fall ’11 sampling & & getting ready for the next photo shoot. The new collection will debut in New York this month at the ENK Children’s Club. I love the new fall collection & almost wish we made adult sizes too!
