Momversation: What’s the Rush?

I love to do videos with Rebecca, she’s so baffled by people’s craziness.

Alt Style: Jen

This is Jen Lover. When she introduced herself, I kept thinking she calling me lover. Like, “My name is Jen, lover.” And I was like, “Huh. I’m Maggie… sexy.” I had to read her business card before we got everything sorted out. Anyway, orange dress!

And this is Jen’s inspiring charm bracelet, which has a charm for every state she’s visited. Jen, I am ripping this idea right off. So genius.

Alt Style: Janel

janelfullhair

This is the very bright, capable Janel Laban of Apartment Therapy and her enviable haircut. (Hi, Janel! You cutie.)

janelsidehair

She says she tells her stylist to aim for “cheap wig.” I couldn’t get my hair to do this if I had a ceramic straight iron and a pact with the Devil, and so it’s all I’ve ever wanted my hair to do.

janelbag

Janel’s super functional bag is by Highway, which seems to specialize in that sort of thing.

janelhat

Also, this hat! Janel says her dog freaks out whenever she wears it because it looks like a little animal attacking her head.

Alt Style: Anne

This is Anne Sage of The City Sage, who was married very recently. Though many of us have coveted the over-knee boot, who actually purchases a pair and works them into her wardrobe? Anne does.

anneelbows

In conclusion, yes to elbow patches.

I took some photos of the cute outfits while I was at ALT. This is the very charming Shayna Roosevelt of Room Creative. She has one of those smiles that starts with her eyes.

Maternity Wardrobe Options

I’ve had lots of requests for a maternity Mighty Closet, but no willing pregnant friends so far. Fortunately Gabrielle Blair, one of the Alt Summit organizers, just posted her five favorite maternity outfits on Design Mom, so she did the work for me. Have a look at Gabby’s closet, and if you’re looking for more inspiration, head over to the Wardrobe Remix maternity pool.
