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.

Three Stylish Mamas: Lyssé Leggings

Lysse Leggings

I am back with my two favs, Kristin from BonBon Rose Girls and Jill from Glamamom for another Three Stylish Mamas collaboration.  Honestly, how can you possibly talk about stylish mamas and NOT mention leggings.  They are a staple for any fashionable mom on the go. Furthermore, how can you talk about leggings and NOT mention Lyssé.  I am elated to be featuring my favorite legging brand today.  I first discovered and blogged about them here, remember?  I have added several pairs to my collection over the past few months.  What I love the most is the higher rise…it really holds you in …leaving you muffin top free and completely smooth through the waistline.  Yessss!!!!

How do you style leggings for Spring?  Here, I kept it simple and fun with a colorful printed scarf and my favorite new gladiators.  I loved the idea of a sandal to change it up from my usual suspects like moto boots.  Be sure to pop by to visit my girls here and here to learn the details of their fabulous legging looks!  As always, thank you for reading and Happy Shopping:)

Monday Mingle: Spring Trend Alert

Monday-Mingle-HEADER

It is #Monday Mingle time ladies!  The fashionable linkup between myself, Bon Bon Rose Girls and Momtrends.  The link is over with Nicole today….Hope you will pop by and join in the fun.  Great giveaway this month as well…so be sure to enter when you stop by:)

As many of you know, The Box Service has started and is full steam ahead!  I have been creating two to three boxes a week and wanted to share with all of you the trends and must-haves that are making it into every personalized package.  If you aren’t able to book a service with me this Spring….maybe this will help guide you to some online options.  Happy Shopping!

 

* Gladiator sandals are always fashionable in the spring and summer months.  They are looking a little more extreme this spring however….many designers have sailed right on passed the ankle and are taking that sandal all the way to the knee.  At first I wasn’t sure…but as I see more and more designs emerge, I have decided it is a really fun trend for Spring.  It will take that jeanshort and tee look to a whole different fashionable level.  I have included lots of options below…a few on the safer side and few that are more daring.  This is a trend I am totally behind and plan to purchase one of the extreme pairs below!

*Crop Tops came on the scene last Spring but were reserved for tweens and celebs that haven’t eaten a burger in five years ever.  The trend is continuing and has become more mainstream.  At first, I wasn’t sure I could embrace it but as more adorable designs arrived in this “shorter” style, I decided to give it a try for both myself and my clientele.  As a thirty-something you have to be careful of this trend.  I am staying on the conservative side of this one, opting for loser fitting tops that are in line with your belly button, not up to the bustline.  I am also suggesting a fitted tank for underneath if you aren’t comfortable showing midriff.  I admit, this isn’t a trend for all…but I wouldn’t be reporting honestly back from the retail trenches if I didn’t make mention of it.

* White leather is everywhere.  Just last week one of the boutiques I work with received a white leather mini, white leather vest and white leather leggings all in one shipment.  I am SOLD on this trend.  Love it!  If you aren’t comfortable going FULL on leather…try the trend with your accessories like a great white belt, bag or pumps!
