Denim Overalls for Spring: Over or In?

I never thought the day would come when overalls would be considered stylish again.

From Rihanna to Ashley Madekwe, over the past year or so, celebrities and street-style fashionistas have been sporting them out and about. Luckily, this time around they’re cropping up in slimmer, more flattering designs and fits.

Back in the 90s, I like many other teens confidently rocked the farmer chic fashion staple. I remember begging my mom for a pricey pair of oversize Calvin Klein aka “CK” overalls from Marshall Field’s (my Chicago readers will remember that store) much to her dismay, but she bought them anyway. They were at least three sizes too big, but back then the bigger and baggier the better! Clearly, I wanted to look like TLC’s long lost fourth member. But in fashion, even the most notoriously questionable styles make a comeback.

While I’m not totally opposed to this popular trend, I’m also not convinced that it lends itself to the over-30 set.

Check out these styles for spring and summer:

Review: Evenflo Classic Glass Feeding Bottle Featuring Proflow


I must admit, I hardly use bottles to feed my 6 1/2 month-old-son. Yep, I'm one of those moms who breastfeeds on demand all day, everyday. It's easy for me and my son loves the comfort and nourishment that it provides. However, when my outfit or a particular public location or outing isn't conducive to breastfeeding, Evenflo's new bottle line with Proflow vented nipples has been my substitute. Evenflo Classic + Vented Bottles with Proflow Vented Nipples (trio of 8 oz) available exclusively at Babies R Us, $9.99 I prefer the classic glass option because it cuts down on germs and mold that can creep in with plastic ones. Plus, with the Proflow innovation, the vented nipples direct those dreaded air bubbles straight into the bottle instead of my son's stomach, reducing gassy … Keep Reading

Kelly Rowland Joins Caress as New ‘Fabulista’


In case you haven't heard, Kelly Rowland is the new "Fabulista" for Caress body washes. Known for her flawless healthy-looking skin, it seems only fitting that the Grammy-award winning singer would be tapped by the Unilever brand to be its newest ambassador. In her role, Kelly will follow in her BFF Lala Anthony's (she was also a Caress Fabulista) footsteps by sharing beauty and fashion tips with consumers and showing them how fresh fragrances inspire her to be fabulous. Through her partnership with Caress, the brand has launched the new Fresh Collection of body washes including: Emerald Rush (also has a beauty bar), Aqua Sparkle and Juicy Escape. Each of the shower gels is refreshingly fragrant and leaves just the right amount of scent on skin. Since I'm a sucker for citrusy … Keep Reading

Cool Spring Styles for Kids at The Children’s Place


When it comes to buying clothes for my kids, The Children's Place is my go-to store. Ever since Ava was a newborn, I've been shopping at the kid-centric store. They have fashionable clothes that are comfortable and affordable.  Usually when you find kids' clothing that isn't overly expensive, the quality is usually compromised. Luckily, that is not the case at The Children's Place. Ava visiting The Children's Place located in Union Square (NYC).  From seasonal dresses to fun graphic tees to girly accessories, Ava always enjoys a visit to TCP. The fact that there's one only 3 blocks away from our apartment makes it even easier and convenient to stop by and browse the latest styles. In fact, we've been to the store three times in the last two weeks! Now that I have a 6-month-old son, … Keep Reading

No Sugar, No Sweat


Hello, my name is Karla and I'm a candy fanatic. For as long as I can remember, I've always had a killer sweet tooth for Skittles, Starburts, and my all-time favorite— gummy bears. In fact, since my son was born last September, I've been consuming on average a pound of gummy bears a week ! Although I do work out here and there, I know that I need to change my snacking habits for my health and to be a good example for my children. That's why I'm excited to take the #AveenoDailyChallenge! I'm ditching my go-to sugar fixes for healthier fruit options for the next 3 weeks. Instead of gummy bears I'll be munching on strawberries, apples and pineapples. Plus, I plan on pampering my skin with Aveeno's Daily Moisturizing Lotion as an additional part of the challenge to keep it smooth and … Keep Reading
