"We attended a gala at the Whitney a few months after Griffin was born, and it was the first time I wanted to wear something sexy again. I opted for a tight Dolce and Gabbana skirt (with lots of stretch) and a black capped sleeve top – two pieces go a lot further than one dress. "
"Anything black is going get you through the day without looking like the latest toddler art creation. I lived in black waxed cotton Zara jeans (which you can literally wipe down) and black crewneck Tippi sweaters from J.Crew."
"You'll be schlepping so much stuff that the lighter your bag, the better. I always found 80% of my wallet held things I didn’t need. I love this one from Louis Vuitton. It holds my keys, and the 2 credit cards I use in the outside pocket and everything else inside."
