Monday Mingle: Summer Style


For me, summer hasn’t really arrived until I am wearing a maxi dress and wedges.  It is just the epitome of summertime style, no?  I love the classic stripes and easy fit of this one featured below.  Adding in the braided belt, wedges and fedora really give it some personal style…which is key for me…finding ways to make the simple look my own.  Are maxis a favorite for you as well?  How would you style the one featured below?

#MondayMingle time again….the stylish collaboration between myself, Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of MomTrends.   I hope you will join in the linkup below….we love seeing what everyone is wearing.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and make it a great week!

Monday Mingle: Floral for Fathers Day


Hope all of you had an amazing weekend.  We had a beautiful couple days…the weather was just gorgeous here at the Jersey Shore.  I had a photo session with my boys at the Boardwalk Friday…a great poolday Saturday…and then a beautiful day at Eagle Oaks for Fathers Day.  Decided to sport this London Times floral dress.  I will admit, I don’t wear florals often….I am not super girlie in my personal style….but sometimes you just want to wear a pretty dress.  I have blogged numerous times about this here and here…..great fit, affordable pricetag…whats not to love?  London Times always delivers.

Do you wear florals?  How would you style this dress?  I kept it simple with a cool peep toe and some fun jewelry.  Hope your week is off to a great start!  Don’t forget to check out my #MondayMingle friends Kristin from BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole from Momtrends…always super stylish:)  Kristin is hosting.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and make it a great week:)

Monday Mingle: Simple Style


If you read often you know, my favorite kind of style is simple and classic.   I keep it interesting and up to date with fun trendy accessories.  With this particular outfit, the accents stole the show…..leopard heels, fun studded belt and of course, all of my Stella and Dot baubles.  I have many clients who are afraid to accessorize…finding it overwhelming and too much fuss.  I always beg them to give it a try….usually pushing the face framers, like a great scarf or necklace.  It is amazing what some color around your beautiful face can do!

This look is featured as part of the #MondayMingle collaboration with the lovelies Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of Momtrends. We love when you link up your style posts and share what you have been wearing lately.  Let’s all get fashionably inspired by one another.  Link is over at BonBon Rose Girls today!  Happy Monday:)

Monday Mingle: M.M. Lafleur- Working Girl Style


Some exciting news here on TSF….I am joining the fabulous ladies Nicole of Momtrends and Kristin of Bon Bon Rose Girls for the weekly style meet up, #MondayMingle.  I am elated to have been asked to join their fashionable crew…bringing you a weekly dose of my style served up every Monday morning. I have been reading both of their blogs for eons…and have had the absolute pleasure of getting to meet them (in real life) at some NYC happenings…so it really is an honor girlies:)  Thank you!

I am highlighting a really amazing brand today.  Have you heard of MM Lafleur? I love a brand that solves a problem…and M.M. Lafluer does just that.  If you are a working woman, you MUST be tired of seeing and/or buying the same dark suit over and over again.  Or maybe  (a good amount of clients tell me about this) you walk into a meeting and see another women wearing the same Banana Republic dress?  If you are nodding your head yes…then you must get to know M.M. Lafleur, learn about their story here.  I can assure you the quality is impeccable, the fit is like tailored perfection and although the price tag is a little on the higher side the pieces are so versatile, classic and quality…they will justify the price tag in no time.  They are filling this void, solving the problem of not being able to find high fashion beautiful but appropriate office wear.  I don’t report to an office…but for the days I need to be more formal I will absolutely be turning to this brand.  I can also think of fifty other ways to style this dress…but before I do that…how about I share the first way I have styled it.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and make it a great week:)

* and yes, you are seeing clearly..the dress has POCKETS!
