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!

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

      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

      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:

      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…..

      Happy New Year!

      I’m so excited that it’s finally 2012! HOORAY FOR NEW BEGINNINGS! While 2011 seemed to be all about endings for us, leaving behind great friends and family and familiar places for big changes….and a big move to a new city…..

      2012 already feels like it’s going to be about new beginnings, new dreams, new circumstances & new people in our lives. So for that, I am very excited!

      Happy New Year!


      Wishing you a very bright, happy fun-filled year full of sunshine & optimism!

      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!
