HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

I am getting personal today as I have a strong urge to wish my Mister a very Happy Father's Day here on my blog :)

It was a blissful Fathers Day weekend celebrating truly one of a kind Dad who have exceeded all my expectations as a Papa! I adore and cherish you even so much more now when we have our big happy family of 5! The love, values and coolness that you are bringing to our family are beyond anything I could have dreamt for. I am the most excited to celebrate my you with you and our family every day in our beautiful life. You are our hero, the best chef, the smartest and brilliant in so many different ways! We love you so so much!

BUMP STYLE TIPS


It was my daughter's Katya 4th birthday celebration. To style my girl was easy as the party held at her gymnastic place so new fancy leotard did the job. To dress up my almost 9 months baby bump, I stuck with my same signature style. Maternity denim, stretchy basic t-shirt and pretty unbuttoned blouse that added festive vibe to my look. For an extra layer of chic I added long leather vest by one of my favorite Israeli designers, Persy. 




Few things I would recommend to invest if you are expecting: 
1. quality maternity denim, my favorite brand is AG Jeans
2. black and white stretchy soft maternity t-shirts 
3. treat yourself with new per of trendy flats because you deserve it!
4. keep all your blazers, cardigans and button down shirts as those you can wear during the entire pregnancy
5. my first pregnancy I also wore maxi dresses, those don't have to be maternity, as long as they have stretch, go with a bigger size and you are perfectly good to go

SNEAKERS CAN ACTUALLY LOOK CHIC


I couldn't be more grateful for the trend that has been around for a while and it's just getting better... the sneakers trend!

As much as I LOVE heels, I can't wear them all the time. Especially while spending time with my 4 year old and while expecting my little boy arrival, any day now :)  The great news is that the variety of sneakers are endless and they can actually look chic!






Here I paired mine with ripped white denim, basic T shirt and one of my favorite button down shirts as a light jacket. An extra layer of cozy sweater in Chicago is always a great idea.

When dressing up your sneakers, think opposites. Try stepping out of your comfort zone and style them with a dress or tailored blazer. You may be fashionably surprised! 


What do you think? Would you try it? How do you stye your sneakers? Comment here for a chance to win a weekly giveaway to my most stylish readers!

Have a fantastic week and stay tuned on my Instagram for some exciting baby news :)

TEL AVIV COUTURE FASHION SHOW AT DEPAUL



When DePaul's super-motivated and ambitious student Ben Rios proposed to me producing an Israeli fashion show so close to my due date, I wasn't sure if I could do it but I couldn't resist the opportunity.  
I am always so proud to introduce innovative fashions from Tel Aviv and I was very excited to be the speaker of the event and inspire DePaul students with my story. 

Tel Aviv Couture designers Luminary, Barak Lahav, Anat Zafrir, Blush, Ciporkin and more  wowed the audience with their creations on the runway of DePaul.

Models who are students of DePaul loved the uniqueness of the clothing and totally rocked the runway!

I couldn't be happier with the great response and exposure that Israeli designers received as they truly deserve it! The entire experience reminded me how much I love my job.


Special thank you to all the sponsors of the event that made this happen:
Israel Campus Coalition, Israeli Counsulat of Chicago, DePaul, Hillel, JUF Israeli Education Center, Students Suporting Israel, Fashion 20/20 designed by DePaul, DePaul models and Aveda for hair and make up.


Also thank you Fashion 20/20 designed by DePaul for interviewing me and for featuring Tel Aviv Couture designer Barak Lahav on their site. 


Thank you for visiting my blog

Yours truly,

TEA TIME


Afternoon tea is my new absolute favorite thing to do. Maybe it's the fact that my due date is right around the corner and drinks options are limited. But it's not just that. Tea time is a super chic way to celebrate a special occasion or just have fun girl time. 
My birthday celebration with my family last week was at the Langham afternoon tea, and it was exactly what the doctor ordered for me - and beyond. And my little mini loved it as much as I did! :-) They had mini stylish treats, delicious tea, superior service, and the mind blowing decor was so delightful! I particularly loved the fact that Langham made the entire experience extremely kids friendly. And of course the dressing up part was so much fun! 


I wore a black & white stripe dress by Neta Efrati with an edgy jacket, and of course a hat! My mini wore a dress by Israeli designer Castro and white Mary Jane Valentino-stud inspired shoes. :-)

Last week, I also had the opportunity to style one of my favorite yoga instructors Alexia Bauer  also for a tea party! Since her personality is not so girly and I wanted to make sure she didn't feel overdressed, I styled her with an edgy pair of slouchy silk pants and a feminine sheer top with an open back. Of course the most important accessory is the hat! The bigger the merrier! I love how Alexia rocked the tea party in this super chic style! But most importantly, she loved it and her comfort and ease shows perfectly in the photos.


Of course, a traditional 60's inspired dress is always a great option but you know me, I like taking the risk and stepping out of the traditional style. After all fashion is all about having fun with it!

Snaps from my Tea Time mood board that I created on Pinterest. Sources and more inspiration here.

Another favorite places for an afternoon tea are at the Peninsula and Soho House.

Happy Tea Time!
Yours truly,
Tali

BUMPING IN STYLE WITH MY MINI


Here is another look that perfectly defines my maternity style. Interesting jacket or in this case a cape, styled with t-shit and denim or shorts.

This cape is one of my favorite recent finds. Its a great buy as I can wear it now and way after the baby arrival, so trendy and so chic!

At the beginning of my pregnancy I have purchased on sale few larger size designer t-shirts with stretch and am still enjoying them in 36 weeks!

No need to spend a fortune on maternity clothing that I personally often find quite boring.

MOTHER'S DAY BRUNCH AT EMBEYA


So, my birthday today couldn't start any better! Yesterday, my dear friend, Komal Patel and her 9 month old adorable baby Paloma hosted a very memorable Mother's Day Brunch at one of our most favorite  dining spots in Chicago, Embeya​. Kids had a separate play area with babysitters so their parents could purely enjoy and celebrate! What a brilliant idea, we loved every second of it! Not to mention a spectacular brunch by their remarkable chef, Michael Sheerin.

Thank you Embeya!

my loves

One of many greatest things of being multicultural is all the wonderful holidays that I can celebrate. Mothers Day is surely one of my favorites now. Its by far the hardest but my most favorite job I have ever done! 
Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful moms in this world!
