I've been working away on a 2013 Fall Essentials list for moms (coming out soon!!) but one trend* became very clear:
The 90's are back.
(*it could be argued that 'the 90's', are, in fact, multiple trends and yes OK fine. Agreed.)
But it's the best of the 90's. It's minimalist-grunge with twists of glamour...and a 70's influence thrown in. It's fabulous fur-lined army parkas and flannel shirts worn as jackets and wool beanies and cozy sweaters (oh, the cozy sweaters Mamas) and streamlined cargo pants and monochromatic head-to-toe black, buffalo check everything and corduroy flare fabulousness.
And really. I could go on and on but instead I'll just shut up and show you:
Bust out your Doc Martaans, Mamas. I may even find an upgraded turtleneck this year. I know!!
And pregnant Mamas who are looking for a sleek, super-stretchy black pant...J.Crew just announced the Maternity Minnie. Yesss.
ps. The next time we chat, I will have new, 18-year-old boobs. Just sayin'.
