Wearing White to Intro My Baby to the City Where His Daddy and I Met and Married... NYC
Canary Yellow Sequins Stun the New York City Tulips
L-O-V-E White can symbolize a lot can't it? Purity, new beginnings, innocence, etc. For whatever reason, I love wearing white. And I love my little bub wearing white too. Maybe there's something behind it. Or maybe it just always seems fresh. I wore this lovely white dress (by Heart and Soul) in New York City the day I strolled my three month old around the Big Apple... not far from where my husband and I met (The W Hotel in Times Square) and were married (The Central Park Boathouse).
Kendrick Slaughter of KK Bloom Boutique styled me and says, "Bringing a little sweet southern charm to NYC. This dress is one of my all time favorites. It's super flattering and you can wear it from day to night. Pair with fun earrings and a comfortable wedge. You can change up the entire look of this dress by adding layers on a chilly spring day (think denim jacket or leather jacket). New moms are so busy with their little ones. But sometimes it is just nice to get out and dress up in something breezy and go for a stroll!"
I'm a Brand New Mama Back on Fox and Friends in New York City
Tulips! My absolute favorite flower in the whole world. The tulips and daffodils always leave a lasting impression on folks visiting New York City in the spring. It is a sign that the winter frost is finally coming to an end. I love the way this canary yellow dress looks like it was almost made for a photo in front of these gorgeous little beauties.
My dress is by Glamorous and it's from KK Bloom. The owner, Kendrick Slaughter styled me and says, "Yellow is one of the biggest trends for Spring and Summer. This color has gotten a bad wrap over the years but it is actually quite flattering on just about every skin tone. Especially a true canary yellow. People also tend to shy away from daytime sequins. The beauty of this piece is that your can pair it with a denim jacket and a pair of sneakers for the day. And throw on some heels and add a bouncy curl in the hair for an evening look!"
Rocking the Red for Sky News Tonight!
That's a wrap! I just spent the last week in New York City back on Fox and Friends... the number one cable morning show in the world. I appreciate Fox News giving me the opportunity to come back on the show I used to host for a few years before moving with my Aussie hubby to Sydney, Australia. It was an honor to introduce our son, Brooks Kooiman Stuckey to the viewers and do 'mommy segments' several days in a row. I hope everyone likes the content so we can do more of it! This red dress is by Heartloom. I picked it up at KK Bloom Boutique in Charlotte, North Carolina before my trip to the Big Apple. I guess you can say it is a Big Apple Red dress!

Back in New York City and Loving It
I just had to come check out my old hood in NYC... The West Village. I think it's Manhattan's best neighborhood. Chill vibe. Amazing bars, boutiques, cafes, and fitness studios. When I moved to New York in 2011 I was living in the Central Park South area. That was nice too since it was right by Central Park and I was able to walk to work at Fox. But it felt too touristy. And the buildings were too tall! LOL Anyway it feels so nice to be back in the hood. So many fond memories of long walks with Baxter and romantic meals with my husband are all flooding back. New York City will always hold a special place in my heart.
Now for the dress! The DRESS! It's by Byron Lars. His styles are very tailored and the detailing is impeccable. You can pick one up using this LINK. Shop other Byron Lars goodies by scrolling down.

Santa Monica LBD Accessorizing
I LOVE NY! It feels so great to be back in my favorite city. Fox News has flown me back to the USA from Australia to host our Proud American coverage for Independence Day Weekend. I've had a blast in the last 36 hours catching up with old friends and colleagues... checking out my old hot spots for fitness and fun... and taking pictures for upcoming AnnaKooiman.com fashion posts. I fly to NC on Friday where we will begin filming pieces to air for the FNC Proud American July 4th coverage. I'll be on Fox and Friends Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. The coverage will be long and strong on July 4th throughout the holiday. I can't wait! I hope you'll tune in.

Gimme More Yumi Kim Rompers
I'm loving my first real trip to Santa Monica. I've been before, but just for an afternoon. One of my besties drove from San Fran and we've been having the best time. Last night we went to a nice dinner and 'got all cute.' I just recently discovered a new handbag designer called Serpui. They are well made and all seem to have a little high class beachy vibe. One of the Del Frisco's waiters last night told me he thought I had brought him a coconut. And that's exactly what this bag looks like! A silky coconut with a fancy strap. LOL The gold earrings, crystal necklace, and classic gold pave link bracelet, are all from JCrew. The little black dress (LBD) is one of my favorite designers you always hear me talk about, La Petite Robe. The black scrappy heels are by Vince Camuto. Scroll down to shop the look!

Coral Black Halo on Studio Ten
This white lace, sheath dress is such a classy, 'wear anywhere' kind of dress! I think this will be a forever gold in my closet! It's by Michael Kors. It does run a little big. I am normally a US size 4. But I had to go down and get a US size 2. These glittery heels are fun aren't they?! They are also by Michael Kors and come in two separate heights: 4.3 inches.... and 3 inches. As for the fun pink peekaboo! The pink fan/tassel earrings are always such a fun surprise too. I have a million of these in different colors! The aviators sunnies are by Ray Ban. Make sure you scroll down to shop the look. Hope you see something you can't live without!

The Sky's the Limit for Fuchsia
Today I had the chance to hang out with my Aussie morning TV friends on Network Ten's, Studio 10. Such a fun-loving team! I wore this great coral dress by Black Halo. Black Halo dresses typically have a tailored look and are very saturated in color (usually solids). I have a couple different coral dresses in my closet by Black Halo. My favorite part of this look isn't the dress though! It's the accessories! The pumps are navy blue with subtle bows at the toes. The bracelet has gold strands with pink crystals on each tip. The big earrings are a great color combo... brown and gold! The white handbag is Louis Vuitton.

Making Black Magic Righteous with Milly
I had a blast being a panelist for the hour on Sky News Australia's number one show, Paul Murray Live. I wore this fuchsia wrap dress by La Petite Robe Chiara Boni. The material is stretchy and forgiving so it's really flattering. This designer is known for brilliant, saturated colors. Fuchsia is one of my absolute favorite colors. It's feminine with out being too froo-froo. The gold cuff with pink accents, the gold crystal dangly earrings, and the white patterned pumps are all from J Crew. I enjoy being on Sky News' PML show. The host is very good. Murray makes you think, makes you laugh, makes you want to make change, and definitely makes you want to watch more!
The Black Jumpsuit of ALL Jumpsuits
Let's make black magic righteous with Milly! Milly has supernatural powers if you ask me! haha So classy and always flattering cuts. This dress has laser mesh around the neckline and hemline. Really cute dealing that sets it apart from other LBDs. And check out the link because it's on sale! The red clutch is classic embossed Gucci. The red pumps are Steve Madden. The silver crystal bracelet is Kate Spade. The crystal post earrings are from Anthropologie. I'm standing in front of one of the Bondi Beach fixtures. The graffiti wall. This is one of my favorite installation at the moment. Sunsets. Smell of Rain. Ice Cold Beers. Starry Nights. Falling in Love. Nice, isn't it?

This is the black jumpsuit of ALL jumpsuits! I say that because the cut is AMAZING! La Petite Robe is one of my absolute favorite designers. I have probably mentioned that 100 times already. But it is usually in regard to brilliant colored dresses that all fit like a glove. The cutouts at the top of this jumpsuit give it some extra character and sass. The fabric feels almost like a wetsuit! Very unique. As for the rest of the look.... The bag is Tory Burch. The floral pumps are Nine West. The statement, rhinestone cuff is from Nordstrom. The pink, tassel earrings are from Bondi Markets. The lipstick is Candy Yum-Yum by MAC. Scroll down and get the look. This killer jumpsuit is still on the market!!!
