Can’t get Enough of My….Yellow Blazer

To be honest, it is probably more than a repeat offender…I wear this yellow blazer a ton.  It instantly adds a punch of color to all of the black and white I seem to be wearing lately…how about here, here and here. Don’t you just love when something gets that much wear?  I really adored it over this denim on denim look from Monday.  I had a new client for a Closet Overhaul and wanted to look chic and put together but comfortable to dig knee deep in her closet. I am going to compile a “must haves” list in the coming week or so…all my closet overhauls are asking for it (what they are missing) and I think its time to share what I think is essential for Spring…it will definitely include what you see below…blazer, scarf, ballet flats…and more.  For now, hope you find some outfit inspiration and make it a great week:)

It is rare for me to skip wearing my Rolex.  It was such a splurge and meaningful gift from my husband, I like to wear it daily.  That said, this fun oversized Invicta watch is perfect for my more casual outfits and I love injecting that rich brown into my look. It was so reasonably priced, I don’t feel guilty only sporting it once in a while and think it looks way more expensive than its pricetag.

Printed, Comfortable, Casual, Chic

I haven’t been as quick as most to jump on the printed denim bandwagon…but I am slowly and steadily becoming a fan. In the same breath, you won’t see me scooping up numerous pairs…one or two should do the trick..as I am certain this trend will fade after the summer months have come and gone.  This pair was last featured on the blog here and I wasn’t totally sure how I would carry them into the spring weather…turns out a white t-shirt and denim shirt can pretty much work miracles.  For my next pair..I have my sights set on something feminine..maybe floral…Will be sure to share once I fall in love with a pair. Wanted to make quick mention that the Old Navy t-shirt featured is fast becoming a favorite.  I have a  few colors and wear them under everything….I size “up” and they are a perfect slouchy fit and length.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and make it a great week:)

Jean Jacket Prep

If you don’t have a great jean jacket, I suggest you add it to your “must haves” list for Spring. Much like your favorite pair of skinnies, it is an extremely versatile piece…pairing fabulously with colored denim but looking equally as fabulous over little spring dresses.  This particular one is by Blank (and available via my box service) for $88.  If you are looking to save this one by Old Navy is cute or if you are considering a splurge this studded one is classic enough to stay current but has that little something special.  I have the most insane week as I ship to two box clients and prepare for my largest boutique event to date! Hope you find some outfit inspiration…back Wednesday with a feature on kiddie clothes and where I shop for my stylish little men.  Make it a great week:)

Weekend Wear: Red and Mint

Wanted to share a fun color combination that I played around with this past weekend.  Not your “typical”     holiday red and green…..I paired my red skinnies with my new mintgreen Deux Lux clutch for a day about   town.  Never would have thought about these colors together….it all sort of organically came together in my closet- LOVE when that happens:)  What do you all think?  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and Happy Shopping!

Snakeskin in the Snow

Mother Nature sure is showing us who is boss. In the wake of Sandy, we have been hit with a Northeastern that has brought extremely cold temperatures and SNOW! I hit the post office and ran a few errands today before the snow really started to stick to the roads. Sharing what I wore today…my post baby “goal” snakeskins….normally would be very exciting….but with everything that is going on here at the Jersey Shore….my slight weight loss and ability to squeeze into skinnies is completely underwhelming. I hope you find some outfit inspiration, but most importantly, I hope you continue to support the relief efforts of Hurricane Sandy.

Infiniti Scarf available for purchase as pictured, Turquoise, Tan $30. Email carly@thirtysomethingfashion.com w interest.

 

Casual Featuring the Georgi!

I am feeling very fortunate lately, as all my hard work for this blog is beginning to pay off. Aside from my box service going strong, I am starting to be contacted by brands/products that really “make sense” for all of my readers and clients (for a long time I would get horribly random product pitches hence the reason you never saw them on the blog). It brings me such joy to highlight great items for you or often times give them away to you. Of course, it is also nice to get complimentary product from these brands for my own use:) A few weeks ago I was introduced to a brand called Baby Cargo.  They are a newer company who made their mark with what I would call a badass umbrella stroller (honestly wish I had known about it before buying my McLaren).  They are in the midst of launching The Georgi Bag.  I was lucky enough to be gifted one to try out and I am SO smitten, I couldn’t wait to share with all of my mommy readers…more up close pictures and details on the bag below.  This is what I wore casually for a playdate Saturday…honorable mention to my bestie who came to visit last week in the cutest TOMS suede wedges that I just had to run out and buy. Hope you find some outfit inspiration and Happy Shopping!

Boyfriend Jeans Riley, Tank M Rena, Blouse Old Navy available here, Necklace Stella and Dot no longer available, TOMS wedges available here, Georgi Diaper Bag c/o Baby Cargo and available here

Now for the “Georgi”!  I love this bag and here’s why:
1. Doesn’t look like a diaper bag and can definitely be used after the lil ones aren’t so little
2. Husband said he would actually carry this diaper bag (first time ever in three years)
3. Price is right at $59.99 and looks and feels WAY more expensive.
4. Super lightweight (even with all my crap in it) so it doesn’t weigh you down.
5. Crossbody…hands free…..need I say more?
6. Comes in FOUR really great color combinations
7. Grommets that slide over umbrella stroller handles so you don’t have to carry the bag at all
8. Spacious with room for diapers, wipes, diaper cream, extra clothes and whatever else you need
9. Fabrication is easy to clean, just wipe it down with cloth and warm water
10. Super stylish and modern

Now through October 10th you can pre order the Georgi for FREE SHIPPING and NO SALES TAX! So pop over to the Baby Cargo site and see if this diaper bag is the perfect one for you. I also wanted to mention their Pinterest Contest for a chance to win fabulous prizes….Good luck!

Multi Tasking In Red

As I mentioned, I am back to “box services”and clients.  Since I work for myself, with no office to report to, my attire can be as casual or dressy as my mood.  Lately I have had a hard time, due to my 4 week post preggo body:(  Dressing can be challenging…I am too thin through the middle for my maternity wear (did you see the size of my bump, yikes) and yet not svelte enough for my pre- pregnancy wear.  I took the plunge and bought a new pair of jeans in a size I need not mention on this blog…..Something to get me through the next month or two, until I can shed the extra poundage. I went with “red” because it just seems to go with EVERYTHING.  I throw a pair of red jeans into every client box….they are truly as easy to wear as actual denim shades.  Navy, Chambray, Ivory, White, Pinstripes, Leopard…Seriously what doesn’t go with red jeans these days? Hope you find some outfit inspiration and have a great weekend!
