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: 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!!!
