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!
…..and hanging by the lake in Prospect Park!
DAUGHTER STYLE: custom made dress/ Juliette Sunshine
MOTHER STYLE: off the shoulder dress/ Zara jewelry/ Marisa Mason sunglasses/ Prada
#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
#5) New Sunglasses: Look out for the perfect shades for the summer! Here are some of my current favorites for YOU:
Women’s sunglasses by Prada / Women’s sunglasses by Coco & Breezy
and for your MINI’S:
Girls sunglasses by Ray-Ban Junior
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.
I’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:
Tropical Vacations & Tropical Gardens:
Retro Palm Springs:
Mod Pop & Rainbow Colors:
And here are some favorites from the new collections:
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.
The “Rainbow Unicorn” dress is custom made from Eco-friendly bamboo/spandex jersey & 100% cotton & is now available on our Online Boutique & on Etsy

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!
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…..
Jacket: Zara / Dress: MSGM/ Shoes: Gianvito Rossi/ Bag: Rag & Bone
Jacket: Mango Kids (similar here) / Dress: Juliette Sunshine (similar here) / Shoes: Zara / Bag: Zara
