The Mom Diaries: Mealtime Meltdown

Every day my two year old is learning something and it’s so much fun to be along for these new discoveries and milestones! In addition to potty training, we are in the process of teaching Grey good manners. So far, our toddling pupil has mastered introducing himself, and saying “hello,” “goodbye,” “please” and “thank you!” However, we’re struggling with table etiquette during mealtime.4Things usually start out well but ten minutes into the meal Grey’s small attention-span and appetite make him restless. We tried to appease him by giving him his choice of fruits and veggies to keep him at the table longer… and give mom and dad a few more minutes to eat. As of late, however, food, along with full cups of juice, ends up thrown all over the floor!
IMG_00153When this happens, we pause and remind him food is for eating and not to be thrown on the floor. We also make it a point to compliment him when he uses his spoon properly or cleans himself up with a napkin. Changing up his late afternoon snacks to include lighter options and moving him to a booster seat instead of the highchair have also helped.

Do you have any tips for dealing with your toddler’s meltdowns during mealtime? –Olivia

Cold Weather Maternity Essentials Your Closet Needs

Bundling up is a TOTAL MUST during the winter months. If you are a mom-to-be that means lots of super soft, warm yet breathable layers. Trying new trends is also a great idea, even with a bump. Read on for my top winter picks your closet needs now and ways to wear some of the trends of the season.
vestStart your winter wardrobe with mom-to-be basics that are anything but boring; a ponte legging with Secret Fit Belly®, lightweight sweater and vest can easily be styled differently all season long. Add a chunky goes-with-everything bootie and you have the perfect winter weekend look.
cardiLayering is essential! The statement cardi is one of the biggest trends of the season and completes a look over jeans or dresses. Plus it keeps you and your bump cozy and warm.
PP_Hol15-1-02_0337_RT-flt_300Cold weather means bundling up when you are outdoors. A maternity puffer coat is a must-have! Choose one for warmth, but in a soft color and with feminine seaming that hugs your curves; you’ll love the way you look (and feel).plaid coatPlaid is another must-have for the season. Opt for a plaid print maternity dressshirt, or better yet, keep warm in a chic wrap coat. In a neutral palette, a plaid coat is totally fun, but still goes with everything. Pop it with a colored scarf and sleek over-the-knee boots to keep it sophisticated.

Olivia’s Weekend in Chicago

10My trip to Chicago last week for a style session was quick but fun! My first stop was a visit to Bright Pink, the Chicago-based charity which focuses on educating young women on early detection for Breast and Ovarian Cancers. It was awesome getting to tour the team’s all pink office space!

My co-host Bright Pink CEO Lindsay Avner and I later spent the afternoon shopping with clients at the A Pea in the Pod at Water Tower Place and chatting with them about all things children, health, and great Chicago food! Moms-to-be were looking for everything from Secret Fit Belly denim to office-appropriate dresses. However, sweaters were the most requested since it was a brisk 46 degrees that morning! A Vince frayed edge cardigan, sweater vest and Joie’s wool blend turtleneck were just a few of the pieces snapped up by mamas who shopped to support Bright Pink.
IMG_0051I hope to get back to Chicago soon, but if you are expecting this winter and live in the area, visit the amazing team at Water Tower Place for all of your cold weather mom-to-be essentials! Let me know where I should visit next. –Olivia

The Potty Chronicles // It’s All Fun + Games

Potty training has officially stalled… pun intended! Another month has passed and my toddler has decided to use the potty for everything BUT its intended use! He can be found using it as a step stool and as a table for playing games, and especially enjoys jumping off of it and into his bed.1We’ve asked him when he thinks he might be ready and the response is usually a resounding, “NO POTTY.” He’s not quite two and a half yet and although we’d like him to use it, we don’t want to stress him out by being overly pushy. For our next try, we are considering a training pant. How are you making out with your toddler’s potty training? Share any secrets to your success in the comments below and I’ll keep you posted on ours! -Olivia

#TBT Jessica Simpson’s Mummy-to-be Announcement

Jessic Simpson 2011 Mummy To BeWe’re throwing it back to the memorable and creative way Jessica Simpson shared her big news in 2011. The designer exclaimed, “I am going to be a mummy!” in her Halloween-themed post and welcomed Daughter Maxwell Drew in May 2012. The pregnancy also inspired her to expand her collection to include maternity. Jessica said at the time, “I’m so excited to partner with Destination Maternity to design a collection of fashionable styles that make you look and feel great! You want to wear clothes that are flattering to your baby bump; you want to show your bump off.” Take a cue from Jessica and work that bump on Halloween and every day! –Olivia

Trend Alert // Layer it On

TrendAlert-LAYER UP 2Layering up is a cold weather must and also a trend for the season. For a mom-to-be, it’s important to layer with pieces that are light, breathable and that can be peeled away when indoors, like chunky cardis or ponchos. For a bump-flattering finish, pair these IT pieces over slim-line knits. Start with a legging, tank and long sleeve tee and pop the look with a suede bootie, felt hat, leather duffle, dark shades and edgy cuff. Even with a neutral palette, the look is anything but boring when you mix different textures and the right accessories. -Olivia
