Monday Mingle: Bohemian Style

Monday-MingleNEW

 

#MondayMingle time again….the stylish collaboration between myself, BonBon Rose Girls and Momtrends.  I am happily sharing my favorite kind of spring style…Bohemian!  I am not sure why…but the warmer weather always brings out the inner bohemian in me.  I think it is just the ease of throwing on a flowing dress that has me.  Last featured here with boots this dress is getting serious play this Spring/Summer.  The fun new addition were my gladiator sandals.  As you know it was trial and error finding this particular pair.  I must have ordered three before landing on these.

Gladiator Sandal Shopping Tips:

1.  If you can go to a store with a large selection like a Nordstroms, that is your best bet.  I found trying different vendors, sizes and heights was essential for me in finding the perfect pair.  I must have spent an additional 40 dollars on shipments back and forth.

2. Adjustable via buckles or ties is the way to go…this way you can customize (to a degree) how it fits your calf.  Remember the Stuart Weitzmans I was ready to splurge on? and then the calf fat they so kindly provided?  The pair below has a buckle that allows me to adjust them. I am choosing to wear them on the looser side.

3.  I plan to wear these a ton this summer…but truth be told, this is a trendy item.  Although I was originally ready to make a serious investment, I would suggest staying within a reasonable price point.  There are lots of options at all pricepoints.  If you need any suggestions, definitely shoot me an email.  Happy to help guide you.

I can’t wait to see what you are wearing. The linky is being hosted by Nicole over at Momtrends this week.  Happy Monday!!!

Monday Mingle: Moto Jacket Trend

Monday-MingleNEW

#MondayMingle time:)  The stylish collaboration between myself, Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of Momtrends.  The link is being hosted by Nicole this week.  I hope you will head over and link up your stylish posts!

I am highlighting a favorite trend for Spring….THE MOTO JACKET!  How great is this Blu Pepper one compliments of PB&J Boutique?  I love the color for Spring and the possibilities are limitless.  Off the top of my head…paired over sweet spring dresses (like below), with skinny jeans and a solid tee for an uber casual vibe and how about over an all black look with leopard accents?  Yes, yes, yes!  I work regularly with the brand Blu Pepper for The Box Service and you will love the touch and feel of this faux leather jacket.  A few other favorites from the boutique…here, here and here!

Hope you find some outfit inspiration….hoping my spring inspired look brings spring inspired weather…a girl can dream:)

This dress has tassle details built into the design…how perfectly on trend? I skipped jewelry and let the dress do the talking.

Bohemian New Year

Santa was good to us again this year.  The boys got some really awesome toys…my husband and I had joy of watching them open their gifts…truly amazing…seeing Christmas through the eyes of your children….sappy enough for you?  Don’t worry…I am sharing some of my gifts too!  My husband hit one of my favorite Philadelphia boutiques this year, Third Street Habit.  If you are ever in Philly…its one NOT to miss.  The owner has bohemian chic down…and I always love her selection of Free People and Sanctuary.  I received the dress featured below….a super cool fedora….as well as a few other gems….all of which you will see VERY soon on the blog!  Infact…we are keeping it low key for New Years Eve …and I was thinking Bohemian might just be the way to go….what do you all think? Do you lean towards glitter and sequins for New Years Eve…or would you rock the bohemian vibe too?  Still undecided so stay tuned…..

Faux Leather Leggings: By day

Since my car officially shrunk with the arrival of baby number 2, we decided it was time to go car shopping.  We are making our definite decision this week…Yukon XL or Acadia?  We are leaning towards the XL…it is huge, but will fit all of our needs for years to come. Will keep you posted:)  After the tedious task of test driving, the hubby and I decided we would do dinner (kids with my parents) so I wanted a “day” appropriate outfit that would also take me into “evening” with just a change of shoes/handbag.  My new faux leather leggings totally did the trick and I loved wearing them.  Took outfit inspiration from my own Polyvore set here. How are you wearing your leather leggings?
