Candy stripes... a sweet treat for July 4th! This dress actually reminds me of those firecracker popsicles you get at the pool on Independence Day. Yum. I especially love this dress because it has some patriotic red, white, and blue... but also a dash of a sweet, subtle pastel purple. It just screams summer to me! It's by Buddy Love. KK Bloom styled me for this shoot. Click on the brand images above for similar looks. Be sure to check out the others in this series - Four Looks for the Fourth. xxRead More
Denim from Sea to Shining Sea! Before my Aussie husband and I moved to Sydney we did a sea to shining sea road trip from New York City to San Fran and stopped to take pictures in this exact spot. When choosing locations for this California KK Bloom photo shoot I knew I would want to come here. What a view of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge!
Since moving to another country I somehow feel even more patriotic this July 4th. I can't wait to see all of you for our Fox News special Independence Day programming called 'Proud American' starting on Monday. I am so fortunate Fox News has invited me back from Australia to host. What an honor! I love my new home but as you can imagine also miss the USA so much!
I hope you enjoy these red, white, and blue patriotic looks - and maybe even pick one up for your own festivities next week! Click the brand images above to shop the look. Don't forget to watch for the other three looks... Four Looks for the Fourth! xxRead More
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!"Read More

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.Read More
