Monday Mingle: Simple Style to Copy

Monday-MingleNEW

I LOVE reading and scrolling through fantasy fashion blogs…Atlantic Pacific, Glamourai, The Blonde Salad…it is much like art,the way they perfectly style,model and photograph their clothing.  Truly editorial genius.   In all honestly though, its not real life.  Well, to be fair, maybe it is someones real life….but definitely not mine.  A coat perfectly balancing on my shoulders….with two kids to chase after, NOT going to happen.

Over the years, I have had a few fantasy photoshoots (this and this by Adalie Scott Photography come to mind)…..but mostly, I try to document outfits you can really translate into your own life….for lack of a better phrase, outfits you can copy, so you don’t have to think about what to wear.  Leave that part to me…I enjoy it:)

So, for this weeks #MondayMingle  I am serving up an outfit ALL of you have..black and white with some beautiful accessories!  I wore this yesterday, shopping for clients.  Classic, Simple, Chic and Comfortable.  Don’t forget to pop by BonBon Rose Girls and Momtrends to see their stylish posts.  Link is with Kristin this week.  Happy Monday!

Gladly sharing this beautiful drapey blouse by August Silk .  Have you heard of the brand?  Available at retailers like Macy’s and Dilliards and best known for the classic cardigan, I have owned a few items here and there.  Always great quality and a great price point.  I particularly loved how lightweight this blouse is….perfect for the hot summer nights that are fast approaching.  They were so kind to gift a blouse to me AND YOU….so ….
