Former Bloomies buyer, and family member, Sara fills us in on what's in her closet! Part I, the basics

Part I

For sure, the one thing I can always count on when my f amily gets together, is a diverse group of amazingly dressed people.  Everyone has a unique style and I often feel like a fish out of water around this crew.  For our second guest blogger I'd like you all to meet one of these stylish cousins, Sara Costello Reardon.  Sara has a long history in the fashion industry and is creating a new life as a mom and wife in New York.  Sara is absolutely one of the haute-est mamas out there + always has been.  She dresses super cool and her style is somewhere between rock star hippie and LA mom.  Grab your beverage of choice and get ready to learn how Sara maintains her wardrobe of basics but still manages to keep it haute with a few key seasonal purchases. 

Coincidentally my cousin Kate started this blog about the same time I was deciding to call it quits from my job as an online buyer to be a stay at home mom to my 2 girls...

After 2 weeks of "staying at home" (Kate, you are so right about this ridiculous title- we are never home!) I quickly messaged Kate on facebook and half jokingly asked her how I could get involved. You see, I loved checking in with the Three Haute Mamas everyday. I felt like I was still chatting with my coworkers over the latest fashions, new designers, best products, etc.
Cut to 5 months later and here I am writing my first guest post (thanks so much for the look mamas!)... and boy has my wardrobe changed... from fully dressing in black and in heels as we New Yorkers tend to do, I have now been able to go back to my roots- my bohemian, earth tone loving wardrobe once packed away in the back of my closet... I found some things stand the test of time- Frye Harness boots, my favorite skinny jeans, a big chunky neutral scarf I bought who knows where, god knows how long ago and a long Seven denim skirt that I will take to my grave. I also find my work staples are still basics but worn in a different way- a black blazer, basic white tank, black leggings, flats, gold hoops... I am wearing at least one of these items everyday (keeping them up front and center in my closet for easy access during those hectic mornings) and love to mix the up with the must haves of the season...

 

 

 

 

 Haute Mamas, anyone have any classic items or basics you can't live with out? xo, Sara

Sarac 

Sara is a mom of two young girls who recently decided to leave her job as a buyer for Bloomies to raise her tots full-time. Massachusetts born, she went to Villanova University then decided to pursue a career in fashion after graduation. Sara started her career with a brief stint at Louis Boston, then moved to New York for an even briefer stint at Bluefly. Shortly after, she found her home at Bloomingdales where she stayed for 8 years and fell in love with the world of retail. Sara grew up there-got engaged, married, went through 2 pregnancies all while navigating the Contemporary fashion market. She is now navigating the world of preschool, ballet and soccer and hopes for the occasional rainy day where she can pack her girls in the car and head to the mall for a marathon shopping trip...albeit the trip is full of carousel and snack bribes to keep the two little ladies going, but she sees the potential in her two budding fashionistas!
