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…


Taking silly pictures & discovering Sunflowers actually grow in Brooklyn!

Golden Summer-Like Mother Like Daughter Style

When the sun is out, your spring summer days are looking bright!

Here in New York City, it doesn’t quite feel like spring yet, some days are cold, some days are rainy and a few days in between have been amazingly  warm & sunny. But I just love when it starts to get hot here because you feel so much optimism & excitement in the air!

This summer we are excited about wearing bright happy colors & especially loving the colors yellow & gold right now.

Here’s some spring/ summer style inspiration for a golden state of mind…..(and in case you want to match your looks with your daughter’s…..or vice versa)…..Step into summer with some of our favorite mother & daughter summer looks

Local Love

Happy Summer! I’m excited for our new addition: The “Rainbow Unicorn” dress is here. I’ve been working a lot with hand applique and loving how it looks on dresses & tees….

We are starting to get excited for summer & have had our first few days of warmth and sunshine in the San Francisco Bay Area. I thought it would be fun to showcase some of the new styles with city scenes from our local neighborhood as the backdrop. We had a lot of fun shooting photos this weekend by Lake Merritt here in Oakland, CA.

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!

Like Mother Like Daughter

This summer has gone by SO fast & I’ve been crazy busy with the kids since school’s been out. Now that it’s all finally come to an end, I’m thinking about back to school clothes and what my daughter will want to wear this fall.

The funny thing is that lately she been wanting to dress just like me! I never imagined this happening as I was such a rebel child and always wanting to be the exact opposite of my Mom & everyone else. But my daughter, now at 7 years old will sometimes study my outfits in the morning and then run to her room to find something similar, either in color or silhouette. And so far…most of the new fall clothes she has chosen are like mini versions of the things I’ve always worn. Lately we’re both liking a sort of ‘dressed up dolly rocker’ look.

Here’s some inspiration in case you want to match your fall looks with your daughter’s…..or vice versa…..

Getting Inspired #9- BLACK & WHITE

It’s often cold & cloudy here in the San Francisco Bay Area, even during summer, which makes it much easier to mix clothing from different seasons & to start thinking ahead towards the fall trends…..

The high impact black & white trend is bold & classic & something that can be worn now & later come fall. Here are some images to get inspired……

Fairy Days

Now that we have headed North, we took a recent trip to Fairy Land in Oakland, CA. This is such an amazing place for kids….so simple & sweet & retro…..It’s been here since the 50’s & legend has it that when Walt Disney visited fairy Land, he was so inspired, he went on to create Disney Land!







(Juliette Sunshine girls!)

Hope you have a great day!
