Eat what you want, Pray you’ll still be comfortable, and Love how you look when you leave the house

Two months after giving birth I had to go to Paris for Fashion Week and regrettably packed my Louboutin ‘So Kate’ 120mm pumps. I hadn’t worn a shoe with real heel height in almost a year. I was in so much pain the night I wore them out to dinner that I sold them to a consignment shop when I got back to Los Angeles.

Exuding style is still my priority when going out but now so is being comfortable.

See below my favorite go-to looks that are easy and fun to recreate:

Daytime Drinks with A View

We have kids now so your friends will understand when you show up fashionably late in this faux snakeskin trench, ankle jeans and puff bag.

Happy Hour with Friends

A fitted denim jacket, boyfriend plaid pants and my favorite Mom sneakers, the New Balance 993s. From carpool with the kids to Hennessy Sidecars with the girls.

Dinner reservations at Mr. Chow

On the other side of postpartum and at pre-baby weight, my confidence overflows from the inside out so much so that I would wear this hot pink sweater with matching wide-legged pants and bag. I want to be seen coming and going.

Hookah at My Favorite Hole-In-The-Wall

My crop top, his oversized jacket, my pants and penny loafers and my daughter’s mini bag. And a bright red lip of course to celebrate Mom’s night out.

Meetings to Talk Business

Blazer sets are my go-to. Oversized and comfortable, yet business casual. And paired with a heel height low enough I can push through in.
