Kelly Rutherford of Gossip Girl fame and her toddler daughter, Helena, were recently spotted strolling through a park looking nothing less than fantastic.
Helena is gorgeous. Even covered in what appears to be chocolate, those lips are amazing. She's going to be a great beauty like her mama. As for Kelly, she just exemplifies that casual-but-polished look moms everywhere strive for ... if they can step away from their track suits long enough.
If you're looking for a little fashion inspiration, here's how you can get a similar look:
I might have guessed she'd be pushing one of the bazillion-dollar brands of strollers, but it's nice to see her with a practical model. This stroller from Delta retails for under $80 and comes in a variety of colors.
A double-breasted wool coat is the perfect piece to transition from fall to winter. Plus, gray is a great neutral and fairly immune to the inevitable spills and smudges of life with a toddler. Here's a similar one from Guess.
If you're going to do skinny jeans, dark is the way to go. This pair from Calvin Klein is reasonably priced so if and when the trend dies, you will hopefully have gotten your money's worth.
Every mom needs a great pair of flats in a neutral color, but a little hardware adds nice interest. I like this studded pair from Target.
Target; $19.99Helena's Boots
Fleece-lined boots for children are one of the best winter inventions ever. They slip on and off easily, and don't require socks (holla!). This is a much less expensive, but still cute, version of the ever-popular Uggs.
