Monday Mingle: Boyfriends

Monday-MingleNEW

One of the boutiques I work with invited me to her denim buy for fall last week…… “boyfriends” are still majorly on the scene!  Thank goodness, because they are my absolute favs.  I mean, who doesn’t love a good skinny jean…but boyfriends…well they just have a cool factor that is hard to describe.  I ESPECIALLY love pairing them with strappy heels for a night out….the juxtaposition of the casual and dressy is just my style:)  I went to a dinner with a few friends Saturday night and this is what I wore.  Pretty silk tank, some fun accessories, boyfriends and my new Steve Madden strappies (that I got for the wedding I went to Friday night, but think they will serve me well otherwise).  Honorable mention to my almost makeup free face…I rarely do that for a night out….but with a slight tan it just seemed to work…I freaking LOVE summer for that reason:)

It’s #MondayMingle time!  The stylish collaboration between myself, BonBon Rose Girls and Momtrends.  Nicole is hosting this week so pop by her site to join in the fun.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and make it a great week!

East West Mamas: A T-Shirt Collaboration and Coin 1804 GIVEAWAY!

So sorry for not bringing you East West Mamas last month….Tanya was whisked away to Paris by her husband (so freaking amazing) and it was just too hectic trying to get it together.  Here we are in July with an amazing feature and giveaway sponsored by Coin 1804.  You might remember me sporting a few of their items last summer super preggers like here and here.  I really love their casual vibe and find their tees and layering pieces to be both on trend and affordable.  I have decided I am obsessed with this top for early fall and it will most likely be mine.  So pop over to November Grey to see how she is sporting her tee ..looking amazing in that all white ensemble, right?  She is also hosting her OWN GIVEAWAY…so don’t miss out.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and enter my giveaway below.  Make it a great week!!!

A Return To Normalcy

Yesterday I visited my 48 degree house (still no power) and grabbed some clothing for the next few days.  It seemed strange to be poking around in my dark closet for a fashionable blogworthy outfit….but I also admit that I just simply needed something to return to normal…and since we can’t go home yet…my wardrobe is about the ONLY thing I can control.  I decided to do a little work and processed some box service clients and visited one of the boutiques I work with that has their power back.  In the late afternoon, I took the boys over to my sister’s to visit…they JUST got their power back and it was a nice change of scenery from my parents house.  This is what I wore…I told you, you will be seeing ALOT of this Rachel Zoe leather vest.  It was a total season splurge and I knew it would look great with pretty much everything in my closet.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration:)

Boyfriend’s

Set to retire any day (due to my ever expanding waistline), I wore my favorite boyfriend jeans for a day of meetings and shopping.  If you don’t own a pair of boyfriend’s…I firmly suggest you invest.  Pregnant or not, they are the perfect balance of comfort and style for a mom on the go.  I love wearing them casually with t-shirt and TOMS but also adore pairing them with sky high heels and the silkiest blouse.  Not sure where to find a great pair?  How about clicking here to check out my polyvore set filled with lots of great boyfriend options.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and Happy Shopping!

Blazer Beauty

I find blazers to be extremely versatile. Super casual when paired with jeans or cargos, but also extremely refined and sophisticated when put back to a great pencil skirt or pair of slacks.  This SAVA chocolate blazer is my all time favorite. I purchased it last year and have worn it countless times like here and here.  If you are looking for a great piece to invest in for fall, a blazer is the way to go.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration:)

Tank Gap, Shirt Unknown via Thrift Shop, Blazer SAVA, Jeans Riley, Shoes Manolo Blahnik, Bag Tano, Sunglasses Prada, Necklace Vintage, Bracelets Lia Sophia and Marilyn Schiff

I purchased these on “clearance” from Neiman Marcus. They are no longer available but a similar pair is here.  Have you checked out the NM clearance? Sizing is limited, but there is a good amount of stock.  Prices are incredible for designer shoes. Little tip- Sort by size, so you don’t fall in love with a pair ONLY available in a 10…I speak from a Miu Miu experience (she wipes tear from cheek)

Happy Shopping!
