Monday Mingle: Androgynous Working-Girl Style

Monday-MingleNEW

When I shop for clients, casual is the name of my game.  Stylish..chic….but always comfortable.  I threw this look together last week, when I had some shopping to do, but also an appointment with a new client.  I was in the mood to go “working girl” style…and the look ended up being quite androgynous.  Truth be told, my style is quite often androgynous.   I am girlie….I swear….but do tend to shy away from pink, lace and bows.  I prefer clean, modern and simple…just feels more ME.  Although I do love sequins and florals:)  Who knows?  Personal style is tricky like that..isn’t it?  You just have to go with what feels good.  Hope you find some workday inspiration and welcome to #MondayMingle!

Monday Mingle is the stylish collaboration between myself, BonBon Rose Girls and Momtrends.  Hosting the linkup below. Hope you will join us:)  What are YOU wearing?  HAPPY MONDAY!

Monday Mingle: Ponchos for Fall

Monday-MingleNEW

I took my coveted leather leggings out for a spin this weekend.  The temps were nice and cool…totally leather weather.  I decided pairing them with my favorite new poncho compliments of Krimson Klover was the way to go!  Do you remember this lovely sweater from last year?  Well, there designs are just as beautiful for 2014!   The sweater featured below  is beautiful, soft and stylish- perfection really.  Ponchos are everywhere this season.  I have been a fan forever…and surprised myself by only owning one other.  I think I might have a snatch up a few from my “Shop” page, which is ready to launch any day now!

Monday Mingle is the stylish collab between myself, BonBon Rose Girls and Momtrends.  I am hosting today…but be sure to pop by and visit my girlies:)  Off to pull a few “The Box Service” today…infact…Kristin of BonBon is one of my clients this week:) Yay!

Monday Mingle: Summer Style

Monday-MingleNEW

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?

Monday Mingle: Black and White for Spring

Monday-MingleNEW

Welcome to #MondayMingle…the stylish collaboration between myself, Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of Momtrends.  Kristin is hosting this week, so if you have a blog JOIN IN the fashion fun.  If you don’t…pop by to see what stylish tips they are serving up this week.

I have been talking about adding a tuxedo styled blazer into my wardrobe for months….and just never found the right one.  I wanted quality so it could remain for a few seasons, but I didn’t want to spend a small fortune.  When this Aryn K piece arrived last week to the stores I work with….I immediately snatched one up for myself…and then added it to two of my The Box Service clients.  At $105 it was the perfect price point and Aryn K is a favorite boutique brand of mine.  Win, win and win!   Hope they love it as much as I do.  This will be a repeat offender here on the blog this Spring!  Have a fantastic Monday:)

* A great big thank you to all the friends family and clients who attended my Spring Preview event:)

Monday Mingle: Hints of Spring

Monday-Mingle-HEADER

If  you live in the northeast…you have GOT to be wishing for warm weather…We just got 5 more inches of snow last night!  Ugh.  As much as I love my cozy sweaters, leather and layers…I just want to be in a flowing floral dress and gladiator sandals.  We hit happy hour Friday night and this is what I wore.  A denim shirt, leather leggings and cardi are not all that inventive…but I DID try to channel warmer weather with fun pops of Spring.  My mint clutch, bright colored bracelets and pink lips seemed to help a bit…and maybe the cocktails did too?

It is #MondayMingle time ladies…I hope you will show myself, Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of Momtrends what YOU have been wearing lately.  The link is being hosted by Kristin today here….pop by and join in the fun!  Hope you are fashionably inspired and make it a GREAT WEEK!

Monday Mingle: TSF Favorite, Wearing All Black

Monday-Mingle-HEADER

In looking through the past few months post…I noticed a theme of all black.  Ironically there was a time, I would have never styled an all black look….thinking it was too dark and non-matching.  Now, when I am pressed for time it is the first thing I gravitate towards, knowing it is chic and uncomplicated.  The style tip for today is adding in something interesting in the way of your accessories.  For example, a pop of red with a lip and shoe, a camo cap, bright colored bag, or something as simple as a fabulous gold cuff.  Keeping it simple but still making it your own.

How about you?  Do you rock the all black trend?  If not, maybe I have nudged you a little closer to trying it out!

Monday Mingle: Lysse Leggings

Monday-Mingle-HEADER

I love being close to downtown Point Pleasant….actually I think it is the only thing that has saved me after my abrupt move from Center City Philly to the quiet and peace of seaside living.  Awesome boutiques and retail shops, delicious restaurants, great energy…I am so thankful to only live five quick minutes away.  If you are ever in the Jersey Shore area…definitely add it to your list, not a town to miss.

I hosted a little blogger meetup Friday night at Lola’s Boutique.  I wore my new Lysse leggings…kind of obsessed with this brand since discovering them here.  They were so kind to send me a few pairs from their Spring line…don’t you love the lace details?  I kept it simple with a tunic, trusted leather vest and spiced it up with red and leopard.  What do you think?

It is #MondayMingle time ladies….The fashionable collaboration between myself, Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of Momtrends.  The linkup is hosted at BonBon Rose Girls this week so pop by and join in the fun:)  Heading into NYC this morning to meet some of my favorite blogging buddies to talk fashion, collaborations and maybe indulge in a afternoon cocktail….Shhhh.  I hope you find some outfit inspiration and  make it a great week:)

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

Monday-Mingle-HEADER

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!

Follow M.M. Lafleur on Facebook and Instagram to remain in the know!
