Monday Mingle: Cuttoff Style

Monday-MingleNEW

I haven’t worn short denim cutoffs in quite some time.  Past summers, I have turned to a bermuda length short….as I was self conscious of the increasing number of spider veins that were taking over my legs.  Although they are hereditary, it seems the pace had quickened since the birth of my boys….I felt like every day a new unsightly vein had arrived.  As many of you know, in early spring I had sclerotherapy to treat them.  The result was great….they aren’t GONE, but I would say improved about 70 percent.  I wasn’t sure what to expect and am elated with the outcome.  It isn’t a perfect fix, as you have to continue to treat veins as they arrive….but I am SO much more confident this summer…skirts and shorts are shorter…so it was worth the $$.  I plan to do it again this winter, per recommendation of the plastic surgeon I worked with…as “maintenance”.  Happy to answer any questions about my experience, if you are interested, just shoot me an email.  NOW, on to style.

Monday Mingle time again!  I hope you will stop by and visit Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of Momtrends to see their stylish posts.  Nicole is hosting this week.  Can’t wait to stop by your blogs…I FINALLY have a few moments to visit with all of you- as I am taking a break from clients this week:)  Happy Monday and hope you find some outfit inspiration!

Monday Mingle: Denim and Details

Monday-MingleNEW

This is the third post in the past two weeks that I have wanted to title, Simple Style.  I call it like I see it, and lately my style has been just that, simple.  Truthfully I never wear anything overly complicated.  I like easy, fuss free clothing and accessories.  How about you?  After a little further thought, I titled this Denim and Details because the jacket is the stand out.  I adore it and am certain there has never been a softer denim…compliments of….you guessed it…Level 99!  Keeping it interesting with the details like my Stella & Dot necklace and Fibi&Clo sandals.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration- I would imagine this look is REALLY easy to recreate!

Easy Summer: SusieRaine

I am, obviously a huge fan of simple easy to wear style…especially in the hot summer months like August. Comfort is king with this particular look featured below….yet I didn’t have to sacrifice style…and I definitely am budget friendly!  This shirt and short combo can be yours for just $30!  What I love most, is I can easily pair this top with white jeans, denim skinnies or even printed pants for fall.  The shorts would be adorable with a solid colored tank/tee and a blazer come the cooler weather.  If I am feeling a little edgy, the shorts might even be cute with tights and boots!  Ah, the possibilities.

A big sincere THANK YOU to the ladies of online shop SusieRaine, for gifting me this adorable look and allowing me to share this amazing DEAL with my readers.  I know sizing is limited, so hurry along now ladies:)  HAPPY SHOPPING!

*I am wearing a SMALL top and MEDIUM shorts.  The shirt runs full, and although I usually like a Medium shirt, Small fits perfectly.  On the bottom I am a 4/6- usually closer to 6 and the medium also fits me perfectly.

Shorts for ThirtySomethings

Shorts.  I will be honest.   We have a love/hate relationship.  I am not confident in shorts.  I have thicker thighs and feel like they aren’t super flattering on me and highlight the heaviest part of my legs.  So, when I find a pair that I feel are flattering AND comfortable, I am sure to dedicate a blogpost to it. Usually a fan of bermudas, these are shorter, but the fit is really easy.  I can teeter between a 4/6 at Old Navy…and these are a 6.  I like that I can wear them a little lower on the hip.  Loving the simple, easy style of this particular outfit.  White tank, white button down, great accessories adding in a POP of color….kind of my uniform lately.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration:)  Happy Shopping!

The Front Tuck

The front tuck.  It is not an official name…but it is the name I have given to my obsession with tucking in just the front part of my shirt.  It shows off your belt, adds some shape and provides a little interest to your outfit, no?  Since I love to tuck, I have decided I need to invest in a fun colorful belt.  Any suggestions?  I am thinking orange….you know I love orange.  You may see some “pinning” and linking to fun belt options in the next few days.

I hope all of you are having a great week.  I am a little frazzled……Preschool ceremonies, teacher gifts, two boxes to get together before the end of the week….and not nearly enough time to do it all!  Ah!!!   Back on Friday with a stylish post to inspire your weekend:)
