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:)

City Girl: Black and White Trend

Yesterday was my 34th birthday and I had an awesome night in NYC on Monday with some great friends.  It was completely impromptu which made it even more fabulous and fun! We went to the restaurant Catch in the Meatpacking district and it was beyond…like so freaking delicious! We sat at the table next to Jamie Foxx…see my girlfriend below…I was too embarrassed to ask for a pic…what is that about?  Anyway….  Thank you to everyone for all the sweet birthday messages via email, text, instagram and facebook…made this old lady feel SPECIAL!

Please forgive the crappy photoshoot….I really really try to just ENJOY my time with friends…being truly present and in the moment…so I only have a few instagram shots and grainy photos from my phone.  I loved my outfit SO very much…thank you RD Style for all the goodies…got quite a few compliments…so I thought I would share how to “get the look”!  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and Happy Wednesday!
