[STYLE] ELEVATOR SNAPSHOTS

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM VIA INSTAGRAM

How would you describe your clothing style? Recently my friend Chelsea, floral designer + prop stylist extraordinnaire, asked me about my style as part of a Babble feature on stylish moms. Although I don't often think about my style when shopping, I know I am the type that likes what she likes. I am definitely not controlled by the latest trends (I like the idea of studs, but know they are just not for me) and tend to stick to classic pieces that will last me for many seasons. Over the years I've had requests from readers to document my outfits the way I do for the boys but to be honest I think my style is quite simple (maybe too simple). Since moving to Korea I started taking elevator snapshots of myself and after going through them I noticed that my wardrobe consists of solids, stripes, and dots (and big tote bags). I loved reading what the other moms in the feature had to say about how their styles changed after becoming mothers and I would love to hear your thoughts. And even for those without children, how has your style changed over the years?

[ART] JENNIFER VALLEZ

PHOTOGRAPHS BY JENNIFER VALLEZ

Jennifer Vallez's latest watercolor illustrations have been popping up on my Instagram feed and I could not be more in love! Not only is she a wonderfully talented artist (and clothing designer, illustrator and doll maker) but her style is amazing. If only her sketches would turn into a clothing line (hint, hint), I would be so happy! Jen hasn't added her watercolor illustrations to her shop yet, but stay tuned!!
