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
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
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!"Read More
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!Read More
