Fall Feature | Carbon Soldier

 

Happy Fall good people! Hope everyone had an amazing Halloween!  I know its been a few since our last fashion post but we have been taking it slow and just enjoying life. Mr.P and I are so excited for all the fall vibes we’ve been getting in the ATL recently!

Our style dreams came true when this gorgeous set arrived from New Zealand brand Carbon Soldier. We have loved their designs for some time now and thought this would be the perfect ensemble for P to rock to celebrate  the start of the fall season. I could totally see a stylish babe wearing this to a holiday party or dinner at the granparents paired with some cool knee socks or tights! The day of this shoot it had already turned a bit chilly so we paired this look with a cozy fur jacket from Plae Fur and these gorgeous boots from Italian brand Gallucci. This outfit totally gives me retro European proper school boy vibes. I imagine thats part of the aesthetic that Carbon Soldier’s creative director Barbara McCamish had when dreaming up this collection. Heirloom quality designs with a modern sensibility. While Mr.P and I love “streetwear” fashion, I have a soft spot for pieces that are more classic.

I often get asked if he enjoys our little fashion Adventures. Like “does he like taking photos”? He answers yes! He says that he likes doing photo shoots with his mom. We are all about hanging out , exploring our city and finding yummy things to eat! I think dressing up for him is really a way of expressing himself. His personality comes out and I think the interactions with admirers gives him more confidence. He was a little shy as a younger kid and I have seen how much he has come out of his shell. He has actually become a bit of a male diva! I think I’ve created a monster!

 

All in the details. Love the Sleeves on this Gorgeous Neapolitan Jacket.

Summer Vibes | Circa 81 KIDS

Happy Monday!

Summertime is all the way here in Atlanta! Mister P has been enjoying the warm weather, playing outside with friends and endless ice pops and fruity drinks. As a parent the challenge of course is to keep the littles occupied and to try to keep them from saying that dreaded phrase “MOM I’M BORED”

We adore Atlanta and very soon I will do a post featuring all the fun things to do with the kidlets during the summer break. For now we are loving taking it slow and easy, reconnecting and of course doing it in style with new gear from Circa 81 Kids!

P and I chose this gorgeous outfit from Jean Bourget, which is super comfy and perfect for all of his summer adventures. The palm print shorts have a wonderful feel to them, very light and airy, which I love! We paired with the matching tee and of this cool cap from Stella Kids and sunnies from Sons+Daughters. 

I love fashion. There I said it and I am not ashamed. My mom was a fashion lover model /actress in the 70’s. We had Harpers Bazar, Vogue and Essence mags on the coffee table. Its in my blood, and while I realize that its not a life or death thing, Its importance in culture is undeniable. What P wears is not the most important of course. Raising a healthy ( in mind and body) young man is forever my number one goal. However by showing him the best, in what I can gives him a baseline standard. You cannot deny that when you look your best you not only feel better but you do better. Ok….. maybe not always, but its worth a shot right?

Circa 81 Kids carries an awesome selection of cool designer and luxury clothing and accessories for your babes! So loving having another dope shop to get P kitted out for summer. With brands like Someday Soon, Jean Bourget, and 3 Pommes you are sure to score the perfect look for your mini fashionistas.

Have a wonderful week friends and thank you all for popping by!

Much love

Raising Up A Gentleman // Boys to Men // Part I

2017-01-16-19-29-10

 

What is this thing call being a Mother? What does being a mother mean to you? Its not very often that I talk about my journey as a single parent. I intentionally leave it out of my social media feeds, as I assume that most people don’t care to hear about the trials and tribulations that come with the territory of parenting solo. I consequently mostly post about Mr.P’s fresh fashions and  good times, because thats really what we all want to see, amiright?

Truth be told, I do want to share more about what it means to me to be the mom of a little boy.

As Mr.P grows older my recent and most nagging anxieties are if I have the tools and resources to teach him HOW to be a man. I have read all the horrible statistics that say that boys raised without a man in the home are more likely to be incarcerated, and more likely to drop out of school. Sometimes I loose sleep at night and wonder what I was thinking when I said to the universe that I wanted to be a mother.

But then I do a T swift booty dance and shake off that negativity ! What the universe gave me is exactly what I wished for. I healthy baby boy who is growing up into a really awesome young man, a little Prince. He is kind and spunky, and treats others with respect. He is not a perfect child, nor am I a perfect mother, we are really works in progress. We take each day as a new opportunity to do it better than the day before. Our babes are watching us, they are soaking up all that they observe.

My wish for P is that he never sees his mom give up. We always keep it pushing. Here’s to raising up a gentleman, moreover here is to raising gentle-humans!

More on this topic in a future post. More mamas who are raising boys need to be heard. Lastly, what are some concerns you have about bringing up your little men? Even if you have a partner to share the load, I wanna hear from you!

Leave a comment and tell me what you think!

All our love
