Mini Chic! Romeo and Cruz Beckham’s Cool Rocker Tees

17 Jul

Romeo and Cruz Beckham Rocker Tees

Splash News Online

It’s common knowledge that the Beckhams are a fashionable family.

But as much as we love to see David and Victoria‘s kids dressed-up, it’s their everyday style that really puts a smile on our face.

Case in point: we spotted Romeo, 10 , and Cruz, 8, grabbing lunch at In-n-Out Burger in North Hollywood on May 30 and the handsome brothers were rocking cool concert tees.

Romeo paired a Nirvana Smiley T-Shirt ($19 – $29) with brown cords and gray sneakers, while Cruz wore a Ramones Presidential Seal T-shirt ($38) with gray plaid shorts and white sneakers.

Even cuter? Their older brother, Brooklyn, 14, bringing up the rear holding little sister, Harper, 2.

Look for Less: Jessica Simpson’s Beachy Chic

Jessica Simpson Pregnant Camilla Dream Merchant Lace Up Kaftan Santa Monica

Splash News Online

Even though she’s due any day now with her first son, Jessica Simpson is still maintaining her sweet and simple maternity style.

The key to her chic looks: easy silhouettes (think maxidresses, kaftans, tees and stretchy pants) paired with simple yet chic accessories.

On Saturday, the mom-to-be stepped out in Camilla‘s Dream Merchant Lace Up Kaftan ($565), a pink printed straw bag, sunglasses and jeweled flip flops while running errands in Santa Monica, Calif.

Love her beautiful beach-ready mix? You’re in luck! We’ve rounded up similar items – all under $190!

Great Ideas! Kid-Friendly Sun Protective Gear Roundup

Sun Protective Gear for Kids Roundup

Summer is finally here – and so begins the daily dance of protecting your little one from the sun!

From sunscreens to creative cover-ups, we trolled some of our favorite online shops for some easy ways to dodge those harmful rays.

As you set aside 5 minutes to lather up on sunscreen before you and your child head out the door, it helps to have some sun protection tools in your arsenal. Like California Baby‘s sun care essentials kit ($36) – complete with sunscreen, sunglasses, swimmer’s shampoo/conditioner and more – which comes in an easy to grab tote.

Coppertone KIDS tear-free lotion ($11) and Seventh Generation Wee Generation baby sunscreen ($14), both of which stay active for up to 80 minutes, are perfect for tossing in the diaper bag. MD Moms‘s Baby Silk towelettes ($26) are vitamin-packed and ideal for rubbing on those little fingers and toes.

The best way to shield baby’s skin from the sun is to keep it under wraps. iPlay has rash guards ($19), sun hats ($6-$12), and water shoes ($14) that keep kids covered during water play. K&H Sun Protective Clothing‘s adorable T-Shirts ($25), developed by a dermatologist Mom, blocks out 99 percent of the sun’s harmful rays and are a necessity for kids romping around at summer camp or the park. Keep those bald baby heads hidden, too, with the Shaidee ($40), a cover that works like an umbrella on your Baby Bjorn or other baby carrier and weighs less than a smartphone.

Don’t forget those baby blues! Velcro a one-size-fits-all Sassy Suds & Sun visor ($6) your child’s forehead for defense, or shield those eyes with BPA-free Babiators ($20) which block 100 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Creative kiddie cabanas act as a barrier between the sun and your kids, too. Kel-Gar‘s Sun Dome ($32), with 50 UPF, folds out for instant shade for your toddler on the beach or elsewhere and comes with a convenient carry case. SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy ($17) has a removable canopy with see-through mesh sides, which means your tots won’t miss out on any of the fun going on around them.

For the baby that takes on the world by car seat, the breathable Imagine Baby Shade ($35) fastens onto your infant car seat to repel sun, water and bugs and iPlay‘s Breatheasy blanket ($18) covers those chubby legs that are often left exposed.

Find Out Why We’re Loving Kate Winslet and Thandie Newton’s TIFF Bump Style

19 Feb

During the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend, we were treated to not one, but two chic bump sightings. Although we only expected to see Kate Winslet stepping out on the red carpet in her pregnancy finery, Thandie Newton surprised us all with her baby announcement – and sleek ensemble – while supporting her new film, Half of a Yellow Sun, on Sunday.

The moms-to-be – who are at very different stages in their pregnancies – each opted for looks that really flattered their growing curves. While attending the Saturday premiere of her new movie Labor Day, Winslet wore a navy empire waist silk gown by Jenny Packham and paired it with Roger Vivier’s luxe Maxi Boite de Nuit clutch.

Newton, on the other hand, donned Stella McCartney‘s Wave Colorblock Sheath ($795), which perfectly accented her beginner belly. And for accessories, the actress went for the designer head-to-toe by pairing her dress with a Stella McCartney gold and black clutch and ankle-strap platform heels.

Both ensembles get our thumbs up. Tell us, what you do you think of their red carpet maternity style?

Mommy & Me Chic: Gwyneth Paltrow’s New LemLem Collection Is Seriously Adorable

22 Sep

As if we weren’t already jealous of her style (and amazing post-kids body!), Gwyneth Paltrow has partnered with model pal Liya Kebede‘s clothing line lemlem for an exclusive collection of mommy-and-me tunics and accessories that is the epitome of summertime chic.

Sold exclusively on Paltrow’s lifestyle blog Goop, the pieces are covered with bright neon stripes perfect for the beach or a family barbecue. Plus, they’re made with lightweight cotton handcrafted in Ethiopia that is so soft it already has a lived-in feel.

“We were delighted to collaborate with goop on these limited edition items as we share a similar lifestyle aesthetic of embracing natural beauty and positive living,” says Kebede. “The pieces stay true to the traditional Ethiopian style for which the brand is known.”

The collection includes the Women’s Gigi Smock Top ($213), the Kids Gigi Smock Top ($100), the reversible Lala everyday bag ($175) and the light Ishi Scarf ($140).

Since Gwyneth usually practices what she preaches on her blog, we bet we’ll see the actress and daughter Apple sporting these pretty tops on vacation soon.
