You know that girl who always has the cutest clothes? You know that girl who always seems to be one step ahead of fashion? You know that girl who is magnetically drawn to the cutest stuff in the store before you even see it? That’s my sister Lisa. I am biased because she is my sister and I love her to death, but she’s also beautiful, sweet, stylish, fun and has the most rocken long, thin, perfect friggen legs you’ve ever seen! (Unfortunately for me, I did not get those legs. Dammit DNA!!) She is also very, very talented. Lisa is a SAH mommy with two beautiful girls and has grown an impressive reputation for knowing “what’s hot and what’s not”. As the new Fashion Editor exclusively for SiliconValleyMommy (doesn’t that make me sound soooo professional), Lisa’s going to keep us “in the know” about the cutest and most current trends and styles for mommies and women everywhere!
GUYS – you can pay attention also for great gift ideas for your woman!
LADIES – feel free to forward this posting to your man with “hints” as to which item you like the most.
Heads up Mommies! Juicy is OUT. Lulu Lemon is IN! It’s the most chic, but comfortable mommy gear/workout gear for right now! We are loving this adorable lightweight jacket, priced at $148.00 from Lulu Lemon. You can pair it with any of their crops (capris) or fitted pants like their classic “groove” pants. It would also be cute with jeans and a white tank for errands, going to the park with your kids or meeting your friends for coffee. Click HERE to find this jacket on Lu Lu Lemon’s website.
We are OBSESSED with these adorable Tory Burch studs. (They also come in silver if you’re not a gold girl.) They are trendy yet a good staple for your jewelry wardrobe. Dress them up or dress them down, these would look cute with anything day or night! Priced at just $68.00, we think they are a good bargain. Click HERE to find these earrings on Tory Burch’s website.
Don’t be shy, BRIGHT is in! Whether it’s bright yellow (shown), turquoise or green, these ultra comfy skimmer jeans from the Gap are only $59.95 and are perfect for spring or summer. Pair them with a slouchy gray or white top like this and you are ready for the day! (BTW, We love this top because it’s a little flowy and you can let your tummy loose – perfect for anyone who’s got a little to hide around the waist line, if ya know what I mean.

How cute is this stylish, Holleywood-esk Panama Hat from J.Crew? It’s $58.00 and comes in white (for brunettes) and natural (for all you blondies). This hat fits all head sizes, including small heads!

Perfect for Spring & Summer, dress it up or dress it down. This comfortable Maxi Skirt from Nordstrom for $78.00 is so stylish and best of all, comfortable!

It also comes in coral, black and teal. This one is a MUST! Click HERE to find this skirt on Nordstrom’s website.
We know, we know – we all don’t have bodies like Denise Richards. But, we still wanted to feature this bathing suit because we think it’s so DAM cute and we think it would look good on anyone who’s still rocken those bikinis. Isn’t it just FUN? From Nordstrom, It’s a little steep at $70 for the top and $60 for the bottom, but aren’t ALL cute bathing suits pricey these days? Comes in other colors too. Yeeee Hawwww! Click HERE to find this suit on Nordstrom’s website.
This bathing suit is classic, classy, sexy and gorgeous! From Victoria Secret, it’s called the Firm Control Convertible Bathing Suit. If the “little black bikini” isn’t quite your thang and you are a little more curvy, this is the perfect bathing suit for you. This suit not only makes you look slimmer (thanks to the miracle suit “technology”), but you can wear it THREE different ways to suit your mood. That is so cool! It comes in sizes 6-16 and retails for $174.00. Seriously want this one! Click HERE to find this suit on Victoria Secret’s website.
This Sunburst Hair Clip by Deepa Gurnani is simply gorgeous, and can be purchased on ShopBop.com for only $42.00. It would look great with any hair color and in any type of hair! This would be so cute to give as a birthday present for a friend, or buy it for yourself and save for your Christmas stocking! Or, buy it for yourself and wear it the SECOND you receive it. Click HERE to find this hair clip on ShopBop’s website.
Who wouldn’t want a pair of the Kailey Flat Sandals from Tory Burch? They are so simple, classic and feminine. These sandals can be dressed up or down and will go with just about anything. If you need some new black sandals for spring and you can throw down the $225.00 for them, they are a must! Click HERE to find these sandals on Tory Burch’s website.
Another pair of Tory Burch shoes we are looooving! They are called the Daria Logo Drivers and wearing these (gorgeous) shoes feel like you are wearing your slippers. Super comfortable yet super classy and hip. They would look great with classic shorts OR your favorite pair of jeans. A little pricey at $275.00 from Neiman Marcus, but sooooo worth it! Click HERE to find these shoes on Neiman Marcus’s website.
The latest and greatest from Tom’s! Whether it’s the wedges, the slip-ons or these new ballet flats (shown) – These shoes are sooooo comfy. Even better, with every pair of shoes you purchase, Toms will give another pair to a child in need. What can we say? So cool. For about $80.00, these will be the most versatile shoes in your closet – they’ll go with just about anything! LOVE!! Click HERE to find these flats on Tom’s website.
We are loving this beautiful bracelet from J.Crew. Reminiscent of the 1950′s, this bracelet has a vintage feel to it. Glamorous at only $68.00, you could wear this with so many things! (Including the Tory Burch gold earrings we recommended above.) This would be an AWESOME gift for a special friend or for yourself. You KNOW you deserve it!

Sigh. Sigh again. Longer sigh. We want this bag so badly. Like, If we see you on the street carrying this bag, we might attack you. We’d let you dump out everything inside the bag, we just want the bag. Bad. Now that you know how we really feel, let us introduce you to the Chloe Marcie Large Leather Hobo Bag which can be purchased at Nordstroms. It’s everything you could ever dream of in a bag, is Italian of course, and is just gorgeous. Celebs like Reese Witherspoon, Sienna Miller and Anne Hathaway all have this bag and they probably didn’t even have to fork out the $1795.00 it costs. They probably got it for free. (Imagine me saying that in a very sarcastic, whiney, jealous voice.) It comes in a few other colors but we love this Dove color shown. If you happen to buy it, don’t let us see you with it… Click HERE to find this bag on Nordstrom’s website.
From Victoria Secret and priced at $48.00, this is the perfect casual cover-up for spring or summer. We love it in this Raspberry Ice color (shown). We would wear it to the beach, to the country club or even over to a friend’s house for a “swimming” playdate. Pair with the cocktail of your choice and your ready to roll. Click HERE to find this coverup on Victoria Secret’s website.
Just the other day I was needing a cute, beaded turquoise necklace to finish my outfit, and I didn’t have one. This is on our wish list! From Stella and Dot, the La Coco Turquoise Bead Necklace only costs $59.00 and would look so pretty with so many different outfits. Jeans and a white t-shirt and this necklace? Cute, polished and casual. Or, pair it with a fun new dress & high heels and you are ready for the wedding! It’s in the budget and just adorable. Another MUST for your jewelry wardrobe!
