Monday Mingle: Grey Skies and Silver Linings

Monday-MingleNEW

I hope all of you had a great weekend.  We celebrated my neice’s 7th birthday.  The weather was surprisingly chilly here at the Jersey Shore.  I actually wore a jacket over this look come sundown.  Although, I am SO ready for fall…maybe not until September 1st.  Give us another week or so weather gods, ok?  Thanks!

This outfit is super simple but I adore my accessories:) I received these sweet Linge ballet flats in the mail last week and couldn’t wait for the first opportunity to wear them.  I have declared grey my “it” color for fall, and have been window shopping ever since.   The sunglasses….sporting them NON stop…the color is a greyish purple and although its an odd, it seems to be working with everything.   SmartBuyGlasses have an amazing selection and I am excited to cruise the site for my next stylish pair.  Remember when I posted my Breakfast at Tiffany’s event to Instagram here…well, I purchased this super delicate arrow necklace/bracelet set and am smitten.  Typically not a silver girl, I thought this set would layer beautifully with many of my existing pieces and of course, grey.  As I always say…simple style is my favorite…. then I let the accessories do the talking:)

Welcome to #MondayMingle, the stylish collaboration between myself, BonBon Rose Girls and Momtrends.  I am hosting this week so please join in the link below.  Make it a GREAT WEEK:)

Three Must Haves: Spring 2014

Delicate Necklaces:

We all know and love our statement necklaces but it is nice to have a change of pace from time to time.  Delicate necklaces are on the scene and I am welcoming them with open arms….especially as the weather warms and you want your style to be easy, comfortable and uncomplicated.  I love them layered like here but worn alone is equally as chic!

Some favorites HERE from Zolie Designs, HERE from SusieRaine and HERE from ShopDesignSpark.

ANKLE LENGTH DENIM:

All the petite girls are cheering out loud right now, no?  Certainly a trend that comes back around often, pretty much every retailer is offering an ankle length denim option this Spring.  I featured this trend here on the blog and love it.

A few of my favorites are HERE, HERE and Plus Size Option  HERE.

* Style Tip:  No new denim budget? Try rolling up your current skinny jeans to achieve an almost identical look!

ANKLE STRAP HEELS

I just got the pair featured below from Sole Society and cannot WAIT to wear them….give me a week or so…for the snow to melt!  Ha!  Joking aside…never has the ankle strap been more chic and on trend.  Honestly, this is something I got away from for a bit…almost everything in my shoe closet seems to be peep toe or gladiator style.  I love the pair below and can’t wait to add in another pair or two for the summer months!

Some great options are HERE, HERE and HERE!
