I love hats. I certainly do not wear one everyday, but when the rain comes, or if I am feeling like I want to change up my look, I throw on my pageboy. If I am extra daring I might even wear my fedora. One style I just can’t get down with is the beanie.
Is it because I am not a Bohemian college twenty-something (nor is Kate Hudson pictured here on the right) or is it because the trend is just downright ugly? Help me see the light!

My mom is in town. We live 3800 miles apart, at opposite ends of the continent, so sadly we don't get hang out out as much as we would like. Of course shopping has always been one of our favorite activities. My mom had “a few things” that she wanted to pick up while she was here, and asked me if shopping with her would be bothersome or difficult. A bother? No, not at all! Difficult? Hmm…maybe a bit. I had a few jealous moments whilst checking out the frilly lacy things in Gap Body, and perhaps I would have loved those Pierre Hardy suede pumps I saw for half-off, but otherwise I survived.
I love shopping with my mom and picking out styles for her that she wouldn’t normally wear. Styles that maybe are not in her comfort zone. In the past she has often bought things that are too big for her, something I think that was passed down from her mother. Having lost a bit of weight recently, my mom needed a new pair of jeans and I was determined that they fit her properly. She found a really cute dark denim pair at The Gap, and after convincing her the 30s looked too big, she slipped on the 29s, and voilà they were perfect! I am so happy for her. The jeans are fabulous, age-appropriate, and do not resemble anything close to a mom jean.
If you are somehow unfamiliar with the "mom jean" and need a visual, check out the SNL skit below (written by Tina Fey), it is hilarious. Oh, and if your Mom happens to have a pair of jeans in her closet with a nine-inch zipper and an elastic waistband, please do us all a huge favor and burn them.

I think this same theory can apply to our relationship with our closets. I love my wardrobe, and I think we have a pretty good thing going, but given the opportunity would I step out on my closet for a one-night stand with a closet that was on my “list”? Yes, I would, and I think you would, too. We all admire the style of certain celebrities and wish for just one day we could walk a block or two in their Manolos.
Kate Moss (icon, trend-setter, boho meets glam goddess)
Gwyneth Paltrow (classic yet chic, amazing cocktail dresses, tailored blazers)
Carrie Bradshaw (ok, so she is fictional, but the tutu, the Fendi baguettes - does this one even need explaining?)
Nicole Richie (love her mama wardrobe, her casual hipness, her great accessories)
Christy Turlington (original supermodel of the 90’s, she must have the most amazing pieces in her wardrobe! Let me in your closet, Mrs. Burns…)
So, who's on your list?
