Monday Mingle: BBQ Style


We postponed our annual family 4th of July BBQ to the 5th…due to the rain and crappy weather.  Good thing we held out because you couldn’t have dreamt a prettier day.  Beautiful weather, good eats and all my family…doesn’t get much better than that!

Comfort is key when I am with the kids…but I always like to feel stylish too.  Easy fitting shorts, loose printed tank and leather flip flops most definitely did the trick.  The Stella Dot Sardinia necklace has been in regular rotation for a few months…just the perfect splash of color!  My take on red, white and blue:)

It’s #MondayMingle time:)  Pop by BonBon Rose Girls  and Momtrends stylish blogs to see what they are wearing:)  The link is being hosted by Kristin .  Hope you will join in the fashion fun!  Make it a great week:)

Bohemian Style

I wore this dress over the weekend.  Both the dress and fedora were two of the gifts I received for Xmas from my favorite Philadelphia boutique Third Street Habit.  The print on the dress mixes blue, black and a slew of other beautiful colors.  I kept the styling simple keeping the hat, scarf, boots and jacket ALL black.  I love it this way…but also can’t wait to style it for Spring with those sand colored Sole Society boots that just won’t quit!  Anyway…. I am off to the NYC trade shows today…you can follow along on Instagram if you wish…I will be sure to share fashion tidbits throughout the day.  I am really excited…as I have some really cool stuff cooking.. I can’t quite share until I have a few more details set in stone…but I should be able to SOON!  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and make it a great week:)

Bohemian New Year

Santa was good to us again this year.  The boys got some really awesome toys…my husband and I had joy of watching them open their gifts…truly amazing…seeing Christmas through the eyes of your children….sappy enough for you?  Don’t worry…I am sharing some of my gifts too!  My husband hit one of my favorite Philadelphia boutiques this year, Third Street Habit.  If you are ever in Philly…its one NOT to miss.  The owner has bohemian chic down…and I always love her selection of Free People and Sanctuary.  I received the dress featured below….a super cool fedora….as well as a few other gems….all of which you will see VERY soon on the blog!  Infact…we are keeping it low key for New Years Eve …and I was thinking Bohemian might just be the way to go….what do you all think? Do you lean towards glitter and sequins for New Years Eve…or would you rock the bohemian vibe too?  Still undecided so stay tuned…..
