Mamas Modernas


Ongoing series about motherhood, fashion and the everyday struggle to keep on looking nice.
 








LAURA


Tropical weekend farmer look.
White linen long sleeve shirt with tiny embroidered palm leaves. It does not wrinkle so it’s one of my top ten for all seasons.
Overalls! The coolest piece of garment for 2017 and a must for ‘18! This one, a whimsical piece from @shopwolveswithinin Greenpoint.
Straw oversized beach bag that closes with a zipper so you can wear literally everything you need inside and not lose it. It has two long straps so you can wear it over the shoulder or as a weird backpack. My aunt sent it to me from Spain, probably from a street vendor outside the food market.
Sunglasses from @etniabarcelona, a Barcelona local eyewear store. They are great and the little colorful cord gives it the right touch.
Shoes and socks, do the best with what you got, last clean pair of socks and old washed - again and again - nike sneakers for a complete adventure.







ANABELLA


Anabella, aka @changabellz as her nickname suggests always rocks the funkiest looks, she is Tomas’s mami and one of my personal heroes. The high pitch cotton cardigan was a birthday present from her bff 😘, found @pasmalnyc , a wonderfully curated small boutique in Greenpoint. “I love it! And it’s what an art teacher would wear” she says. Anabella is also an expert in finding the best accessories. “My friend @andreashansen took a class in silkscreening and made this bag as the final project. The sunglasses I bought last summer while strolling around Bridgehampton.” They are mady by @paredeyewear , an australian eyewear brand.





MARIA



Black on black and more black with a golden touch, that’s @mariagordillo . She is Winter’s mama, and my fellow españoleta. I think she dresses in black to hide her mischief, Maria is one of the funniest people I know. But she has a different explanation: “It’s the easiest to combine, it makes anyone look their best and makes you slimmer. The question is: how is it that not everyone is dressing in black?! Black goes beautifully with NYC”

The denim pants have a weird cool cut and a buckle on the back. They are from american designer @rachelcomey “This are my favorite jeans, they are extremely confi and feel different to everything else out there and I always receive compliments about them. Money well spent”

Black boots with a lot of attitude from @acnestudios They feature a shiny golden tab in the back. “I like comfy shoes, I have never been able to wear heels, I just can’t walk on them. Punto. I guess I am a bit of a tomboy”
“I LOVE gold, that’s my gipsy side, I would wear a stack of golden chains and rings.”

She bought this beautiful @commedesgarcons set of rings in @therealreal , an online luxury consignment store.
