Wearing White to Intro My Baby to the City Where His Daddy and I Met and Married... NYC

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!"

Canary Yellow Sequins Stun the New York City Tulips

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!"

I'm a Brand New Mama Back on Fox and Friends in New York City

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!

Wearing Byron Lars in NYC's West Village

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.

Back in New York City and Loving It

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. Also, please be on the lookout because I'll be writing a piece for FoxNews.com about what makes me proud to be an American. Please leave me comments on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram about what makes YOU proud to be an American! U-S-A!

This photo shoot was with fashion photographer, Lydia Hudgens on 5th Avenue, near Washington Square Park. Red, white, silver, and black is such a great color combination. Scroll down to "Shop the Look!" Everything has been handpicked by me.

Neutral Tones and Sequins in NYC's West Village

Neutral tones and sequins are an unsuspecting yet perfect pair. Classy and elegant with a touch of pizazz. The neutral tones mute the scream that sparkle can sometimes bring... the kind that causes a dress to enter the room before the woman. It's all about the girl in the dress... not the just the dress right!? The under layer of this dress is nude in color. That hue combined with its fitted naturekeeps the tailored look... despite having a looser overlay.

I declare! I will wear this dress until the sequins fall off! I've probably worn it too many times as is. It was a West Village staple while I was living there. Hey! If there are different people at the events you're going to... and the dress is a hit... Do you really have to wear something new every time!? Every time I got to give it to GoodWill... I think... I'll just wear it ONE more time! Do you have any dresses like that?

Check out my handpicked goodies below. As always... let me know on social media if you find something that jives with your style!
