Rachel Zoe is So Cool

Did you see that picture in US Weekly of Rachel strolling with her baby in the limited edition Missoni Bugaboo to get her nails done? She was wearing a crazy-wide leg pair of jeans, a black tank, a black vest, huge heels, a hat, and big glasses. She, as usual, looked awesome. But I couldn't help but think, "Isn't it hot as hell in L.A. right now?" Actually, the answer is no. It isn't that hot. It is much hotter where I live. Still, I was impressed. It is tough to look good right after having a baby. So I decided to create a "day around town with your newborn" look that fits hot and humid weather. I've tried to make this realistic but I admit that it assumes decent legs. At least I've given the midsection area a break! Here are a couple of things about it that are important. 1. There are accessories (hat, sunglasses, necklace) but they are practical. This is not a necklace that will clonk your baby in the head when you pick her up. There is no ring because you are washing your hands 30 times a day so who needs the trouble? The bracelet is soft. 2. The top hides your midsection which needs time to... recover. 3. The shorts are loose and elastic waist but no one will know because of the top! 4. The shoes are flat so you can walk to your heart's content. 5. The sunglasses and hat hide the fact that you have haven't slept, showered, or done your makeup in 2 days. 5. The clothes are machine washable because you are going to get spit up on 6. You still look like you care about yourself even though the most important thing in the world to you doesn't care what you look like one little bit. But someday, when she's older, she'll appreciate your effort.
