Modern Mom Series {Lovely Lara Harrington}

Lara Harrington and her daughter Margot recently spent time with MoPa, guiding us through their eclectic world of curated details both big and little. As a business owner, personal trainer, and mother who loves to share her penchant for family, health and beauty (through bicep reps, of course) – she’s truly inspiring.

What is your all time favorite mom moment so far? It has to be the first time I saw Margot, her nose was so perfect! All I could say was where did that nose come from?

Who or what inspires your personal style? Not sure. Definitely into vintage. I have always admired my cousin Claudia’s style. She’s a seamstress in New York and has always been super stylish.

Who is your favorite style icon? Never thought about it, although I love what Debi Mazar wears in the Extra Virgin cooking show.

Big & Little {Sherbet Edition}


No sun just yet… to make up for it:  layer yourself in some sherbet hues and call it day. 

String up this little lion light {in this season’s must have color} for baby. 

Get in on this season’s colored denim, mama. Oh… and throw on some sherbet shades for good measure. 


It’s getting bright.

Color Crush {Baby Grey}

When I think grey, I think total elegance and refinement… the perfect neutral. 

It’s taken over interiors – easily becoming the “it” color for any room… including baby’s nursery.
