The Sunday Brief

the motherchic blog

First and Foremost // Target strikes again. Top fashion website, Who What Wear, just launched their first line with the red bullseye. I’d imagine it will sell out fast – it’s SO good. Chic yet timeless pieces perfect for layering, accessorizing or just wearing alone. You can shop the newly launched line right HERE! That is, if there is anything left!

*Now that it’s live, it looks like they are rolling this out slow. Snag THIS now, and trust me you won’t regret it. So versatile – from office chic to date night! Post on how to wear it to follow!

Who Rules the Roost?// Interesting point of view regarding the “crisis of authority” when it comes to our parenting kids these days. Check out this article featuring a local author/parenting expert and his views on this topic.

In other News // I just came across this parenting website. Short reads. Practical and useful tips. Because…….#nooneeversaiditwaseasy

Preschool Drama //  Is preschool these days counter productive? Personally, I just want my kids to develop some social graces, play, and have fun. If their first school experience isn’t a positive one, then, well, then we are screwed. You know what they say about first impressions…. I think it’s time we stop stressing over how much knowledge we can cram into our kids’ brains before they hit kindergarten. Kids will learn when they are developmentally ready.

Home SWEET home // Wow. Just wow. This is the ultimate fixer upper. How talented is Joanna Gaines?!

Eat // Thanks for all of the great feedback on these babies. Turns out they can be made without egg for those with allergies. On the menu this week: Seems like a good time of year for some chicken noodle soup ( and this recipe uses left over’s from the lemon chicken I recommended last week!). Did anyone make that chicken? Good, right? This winter salad looks amazing. And for the slow cooker crew – I’ll be trying this tomato, quinoa, kale soup.

Shop // Loft’s pre-spring sale is still going strong. You can see all of my picks here. Pregnant mamas – found my new favorite maternity jeans. Oh, and wondering what moms wear on Valentine’s Day? Any of this!

Most importantly, how is everyone doing? This time of year can be tough. Here are some instant mood boosters. (Hint: wearing yellow helps!)

Have a great Sunday everyone.
