ne of the best things about dressing for spring is that we have the chance to carry over a few of our favorite fall pieces to a new season. Even better is that in the spring, we have the opportunity to indulge in trends galore. And this year, styles are especially fun and delicious, because there’s hardly a look that isn’t on-trend. From laces and sheers to camouflage and utilitarian-inspired looks, if you already own it, or see on the racks in a consignment shop, boutique or

department store, you’re probably going to look like you know what’s going on in the world of fashion. On a recent Sunday afternoon, when the breeze was nice and the skies clear, four models played dress up and told color stories—fashion stories wearing envy-invoking spring looks. There’s really no need to be jealous, though; every chic look the models are wearing came from a locally owned store. Go forth, shop, and be fabulous.

An Earth Day Toast

by Meredith W. Sullivan

one are the days when eco-friendly meant hemp necklaces, rope sandals and patchouli oil. These days, an eco-chick is sexy and cool, flirty and fun all while being conscientious of the environment. From cosmetics to clothing, handbags to housewares, more and more of today’s fashions go beyond fads and acknowledge labor practices and carbon footprints. A lot of designers are even being creative with recycling materials and repurposing goods already in existence. On April 22, dress yourself up, and let’s all make a toast to Mama Earth. She deserves it. (She does have her own day after all.) Tom’s classic shoes are made with organic cotton and contain no animal byproducts, $54; Buffalo Peak Outfitters

KELLY BRYAN SMITH

Best Gifts for New Moms

Kelly and her son Simon rest together at home a few days after his birth in June 2009.

T

he best gifts for new moms are not necessarily cute little outfits or monogrammed bibs. Although most moms love opening tiny treasures at baby showers, the first few weeks of a baby’s life is usually a blur of more practical concerns than coordinated socks and onesies. Here are some useful gifts to help the

new mom in your life. • Diaper delivery. It is easy for a newborn baby to run through dozens of diapers and wipes before a mom even has time to take out the trash, let alone think about getting out of the house with a newborn to stock up on basic necessities. Before you stop by to meet the new baby, give your friend a call or a

Jazz brunch, call for prices, King Edward Hotel

text to see if you can pick up a package of her preferred brand of diapers, wipes or diaper cream on your way. It might not be the most personal gift, but your friend will appreciate the gesture when she doesn’t run out of diapers in the middle of the night. • Healthy fast food. It can be extremely hard for a new mom to even think about preparing meals for her family, especially right after delivering a baby. Save your friend the time and stress of meal-making by bringing by a healthy alternative to take-out food. Bring easily freezable foods to eat later if your friend already has a meal plan for that particular day. Be certain to ask about dietary restrictions of your friend and her family, especially if she is breastfeeding and is avoiding certain foods. • Helping hands. Even if you’re operating on a tight budget, you can give your friend the meaningful gift of your time. Ask your friend when you can come by to help her start a load of laundry, wash the dishes, take out the trash, write thank-you notes or mow the lawn. These basic necessities can be overwhelming for new moms, who may feel tired and hormonal. A short gift of your time

gives the new mom in your life a welcome respite from worry and can allow her extra time to rest or to enjoy her baby. • Rest and relaxation. If your friend has a particularly fussy baby, she may not be getting the recovery time or sleep that she needs to function well, especially once her husband has to go back to work or her mom has to leave after helping out for a few weeks. Offer to take the baby on a stroll around the neighborhood or just to rock the baby in another room while your friend takes a much needed nap or soaks in the tub without worrying about her baby. • Gift cards. You may not be able to resist purchasing a tangible gift for your friend. If not, think about purchasing a gift card for your friend. Babies can be expensive, and a gift card to a local retailer such as Rainbow Whole Foods Cooperative Grocery or your favorite children’s consignment shop can help your friend stock up on baby clothes, baby gear or healthy food without breaking her budget. Or think about getting her a gift card to Lemuria Books, since babies might outgrow the cute tiny outfits, but nobody ever outgrows classic children’s books.


A Rez-olution. E

very year about this time I start thinking about vacation. The only hang up is that I’m a working girl with vacation days, and they’re limited. So I’ve begun negotiations. What use am I really when I spend the days dreaming of the sun and sand? But until I get the boss man to see things my way, I will compromise and spend my weekends at The Rez. So why don’t you bring your blanket and join me? I’ll bring the fashion magazines!

If there is something you’d like to see on our FLY page, follow us on Twitter @FlyJFP.

few weeks ago, some of our Twitter friends suggested we dedicate a FLY page to Doctor Who. He’s a cultural icon who has the ability to travel through space and time in his phone-booth time machine, the TARDIS. The Doctor’s mission is to battle injustice and right wrongs. When near death he can regenerate his body thus explaining his many fashion trends throughout the history of the show. This doctor gets our FLY stamp of approval. Catch “Doctor Who” at 9 p.m. Saturdays on Mississippi Public Broadcasting.

Swimsuit Season or Not?

If there is something you’d like to see on our FLY page, tell us on Twitter @FlyJFP.

by Meredith W. Sullivan

M

ost retailers consider July to be the end of the season for swimwear. I, however, firmly believe that they are more “in” now than ever. When the temps reach 100 degrees daily, of course girls are still busting out their bikinis! Here’s a tip: Take advantage of the retail swimsuit season and score a new one from the sale rack.

Keep Kids Safe in the Water LAUNCH PAD PUBLISHING

by LaShanda Phillips

Bejeweled Beauty Trina Turk pink bikini Treehouse, $176

The best age to start teaching your kids to swim is between 6 months and 12 months, says Rita Goldberg, author of “I Love to Swim!”

T

he American Red Cross says drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1 to 14. It is vital to always supervise your children while around or in water. Though swimming is fun and beneficial, it can be dangerous unless you take the proper precautions. Use these tips to keep your child safe while having fun in the water: • Enroll your kids in age-appropriate swim classes. According to Rita Goldberg, author of “I Love to Swim!” (Launch Pad Publishing, 2010, $19.95), the best age to start teaching your kids to swim is between the ages of 6 months and 12 months. • Do not prohibit your children from going near water. Instead, calmly teach them important techniques like floating on their backs, which is the most important survival skill of all according to Goldberg. • Swim in designated areas that are supervised by lifeguards. • Although lifeguards may be present, parents should still actively watch and interact with their children. • Establish rules and set restrictions based on your child’s abilities. • Never leave a child unattended near the water. Use the buddy system. • Teach your child to always ask permission before entering water. • Prevent unsupervised access to a pool by choosing one with high barriers that enclose the entrance. Keep tempting and colorful pool toys out of sight. • Children should wear U.S. Coast Guardapproved life jackets when in or around water, but do not rely on these alone. • Keep a first-aid kit, a cell phone, and reaching and throwing equipment nearby whenever you are near a pool or beach. • Enroll in some safety courses such as CPR or first aid to know how to prevent and respond should an emergency occur. • Check the water first if a child goes missing near water. Seconds can mean the difference between survival and brain damage to your child—or death. • Know when to call 9-1-1. SOURCES: WWW.REDCROSS.ORG AND WWW.ILOVETOSWIMTHEBOOK. COM.
