Monday-MingleNEW

Here in New Jersey, we are having an extremely mild August.  It was downright chilly over the weekend.  Gorgeous…but chilly.  I wore this out to dinner and drinks the other evening.  You know I love mixing my distressed boyfriends with killer heels and was elated to carry my NEW grey clutch!  I hopped right on my trend forecast HERE and purchased my first grey accessory for fall……definitely not my last!  Hope you find some outfit inspiration:)

#MondayMingle time again…the stylish collaboration with Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of Momtrends.  Be sure to link up your fashionable posts….over on Kristins blog today:)  Make it a great week!

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: Styling White Jeans

Monday-MingleNEW

It’s #MondayMingle time…the stylish collaboration between myself, BonBon Rose Girls and Momtrends.  I am happy to be hosting this week to show off my favorite new denim for Spring…WHITE SKINNIES!  I was due for a new pair…my priors had to be tossed…too many stains to salvage.  I have been waiting for these Level 99’s to arrive for weeks at a local boutique and although I had grown quite impatient…..they were most definitely worth the wait!  I love the distressed knees and skinny fit.  Honestly, I haven’t met a pair of Level 99’s I don’t love.  They are my bestselling denim line from The Box Service, as well as my Roll in The Rack appointments.

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend.  I can’t wait to see what stylish posts you are linking up and promise to pop by and say “hi” to all of you at some point this week:)  Be sure to swing by and visit Kristin and Nicole🙂  Make it a great week!

Monday Mingle: Krimson Klover Giveaway!

Monday-MingleNEW

It’s #MondayMingle time…the stylish collaboration between myself, BonBon Rose Girls and Momtrends.  Happy to be hosting this week styled in my favorite boyfriend jeans and what will most definitely be my new favorite sweater and sandals for Spring.

I am elated to be featuring a new brand on the blog today, Krimson Klover.  How gorgeous is this lightweight peekaboo sweater? The brand rep “surprised me” with the color and although it is a color I probably never would have chosen for myself, I LOVE it.  Really brightened up the rather dreary weekend.  This sweater is really versatile, adding a bit of edginess by wearing just a bandeau bra, killer heels and a leather cap….but I also picture this with a white tank, white jeans and nude ballet flats for a way more classic vibe.  A requirement for my wardrobe is that items must be able to work in different ways, and this sweater most definitely fits the bill.  You like?  If so…YOU CAN WIN ONE BELOW…in your size and color of choice!  Don’t forget to enter below and then of course, don’t forget to pop by and visit my stylish friends Kristin and Nicole🙂  Happy Monday.

Three Stylish Mamas: Glasses.com

Fotor032875115

Aside from doing our best to be stylish….we are also a busy crew…so apologies for not bringing you Three Stylish Mamas for a few months.  We are back today featuring some fabulous sunglasses compliments of Glasses.com.  If you aren’t familiar, Glasses.com is an online retailer for prescription and non-prescription glasses and sunglasses.  They have some great features on their site….including this virtual try on app, online chat assistance and they make all of their lenses in house at a state of the art facility. Candidly, it took a little longer than it should have for us all to receive our glasses- While I am happy with the product, beware you may have to chase down your order a bit.  I chose this fun pair of green mirrored shades from Ray Ban.  I love a classic Ray Ban style…and it will be nice to have something else other than my trusted D&G oversized shades.  Don’t worry, I won’t be abandoning them….Love those badboys.

Have you visited my dear blogging friends lately?  Head on over…visit Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Jill of Glamamom.  They would love to hear from you:)  Happy Friday…hope you and your families have a great weekend.

Easy Style: Black, White and a Pop of Color!

I adore the simple pairing of black and white….classic, chic and never out of style.  I especially love it paired with a pop of color.  For me, that pop of color is often orange.  If I were to have a signature color, orange is what it would be.  I have some amazing investment pieces in the color, one being the Marc Jacobs bag featured below.  I am also fairly certain no other accessory has gotten as much wear as this Zolie Designs statement necklace.

Style tip:  Spice up your classic black and white pieces with your favorite bright colored accessories.  It is a subtle way to welcome Spring without looking like you are trying too hard.

Hope you find some outfit inspiration!  We finally have some warmer temperatures here in Jersey…and even though they come with rain, I am NOT complaining.  Happy weekend to all:)

Invest in Silver this Spring!

You may remember my forecast for silver pumps being a great investment here…..well my opinion on this hasn’t changed.  Silver is seriously on the scene for Spring….which means I have some shopping to do!  I am primarily a gold girl.  It seems to work well with my skin tone and I just love the rich luxury associated with the color…but even I cannot deny the influx of metallic silver that is everywhere.  I plan to invest in a few cool pieces in the coming weeks.  It will be a nice change of pace from all the gold I own.  I am still working on the perfect silver shoe, most likely will pick up a few baubles and maybe even article of clothing.  Why not?  You only live once.  Here are some of my favorite metallic silver items from around the web….Happy Shopping!

Classic Outfits: Standing the Test of Time

As many of you know, I completely overhauled my site about three months ago.  I am elated with how it turned out and am finally starting to get the hang of WordPress.  One of the major annoyances however, was that I had to recategorize all four years worth of posts. See those nifty categories on the right sidebar….like Fall Fashion or Maternity Style…. that make it easy for guests to navigate around the site….well they were a pain in my a**.  I have literally been working on it for three months…categorizing a few posts a night before I went to bed.

There was a silver lining.  I was able to rediscover my blog, appreciate all of my hard work these past few years and it has taken me on a personal journey of style…and I have to say…I still love 95 percent of the outfits I have featured on TSF.  I was so inspired, I decided to choose a few of my favorites (and yours) and restyle them with items that are currently retailing in stores.  Fair warning…you will see a few with my big old belly…turns out some of my maternity looks were just begging to be recreated…minus the bump! Hope you all love this post as much as I do….busy week ahead planning for an event and a closet makeover on Friday:)  Back Wednesday with a style post! Make it a great week!

7c50c31b578f3820eafc2d31b3db3cd8This outfit is old…like before I was even pregnant with Preston….but I love it as much now as I did then. I still have the killer Nicole Miller blouse however the pants, shoes and earrings have all been consigned or donated.  Here is how I plan to recreate this look for Spring 2014.

SIlky Cargos for Spring

This maternity look was quite controversial on Pinterest…look at the comments here.  Crazy, right?  In no way shape or form is this outfit scandalous…expecting or not!  I decided it is one of my favorite looks and want to recreate it this Spring.  A few updates to my look below!

Recreating for Spring 2014

 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis was also a highly pinned outfit from my Pregnancy Board…also super cute for those of us that don’t have a bun in the oven too!  I definitely need to recreate this look for early Spring….now the warmer weather just needs to arrive!

This was a favorite from Pinterest as well….maybe my most popular ever?  I wore this last winter…for a holiday party.  I love the look and think it could easily take you into the warmer months with some color and accessory adjustments.
