Our favorite NYC mamas and their toddlers help us bring you some summer fashion inspiration.
We remember being pregnant and trying to wrap our minds around what it would be like to navigate the city with a baby, and eventually a toddler, in tow. It seemed overwhelming and unmanageable. But then we’d see a mom that looked like us sitting at brunch having a civilized meal with her well-behaved toddler and we’d think “OK, it can be done.” And you know what? Now that we have toddlers we can actually confirm that thought. Don’t get us wrong--just like in your pregnancy, some days are harder than others and there will be tantrums. But most? Most are awesome. Which is why we’ve launched Toddler Tuesdays. To remind you that your future looks mighty cute...and often mighty stylish. For this week’s Toddler Tuesday, we (and our kids Libby and Oliver) joined forces with some of our favorite NYC blogger moms and their kiddos to get you in the mood for summer. Our little Sunday morning roof party included some seriously fun styling by Nicole Gonzalez of Lillies & Leon (with son Lucas) and fantastic photography by Lindsey Belle (with daughter Stella). And because six toddlers are even more fun than four, we invited Julie Garcés of Stroller Naps (with son Rio) and Christine Fadel of The C Word (with daughter Marlo) to round out our motley crew. Happy summer style. Pay attention to the gif action below.
