Monday Mingle: Girls Weekend

Monday-MingleNEW

I am lucky to have remained extremely close to a group of my college friends.  We hail from so many different states these days….but we set aside a weekend annually to all get together.  It is always a blast…we just know each other so well…we pick right back up where we left off.  Food, cocktails, dancing and amazing conversation- there are few other places that I would rather be.  This year we took Dewey Beach by storm…it was…well…interesting.  I haven’t been to bars with inches of sludge on the floor in quite some time…but it was FUN…and we had a blast….always do when I am with these people.  How was your weekend?  Any fun adventures?

#MondayMingle time again- Be sure to pop by and visit Nicole of Momtrends and Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls.  They always serve up some fabulous style on Mondays.  The linkup is being hosted by Nicole this week.  Happy Monday:)

Monday Mingle: BBQ Style

Monday-MingleNEW

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:)

The Front Tuck

The front tuck.  It is not an official name…but it is the name I have given to my obsession with tucking in just the front part of my shirt.  It shows off your belt, adds some shape and provides a little interest to your outfit, no?  Since I love to tuck, I have decided I need to invest in a fun colorful belt.  Any suggestions?  I am thinking orange….you know I love orange.  You may see some “pinning” and linking to fun belt options in the next few days.

I hope all of you are having a great week.  I am a little frazzled……Preschool ceremonies, teacher gifts, two boxes to get together before the end of the week….and not nearly enough time to do it all!  Ah!!!   Back on Friday with a stylish post to inspire your weekend:)

I featured this look on instagram Saturday morning.  The boys and I hit our new pool for the day and I can honestly say we had a BLAST!  I am still not sure who had more fun…them…or me?  After all the drama from the prior week, it was so nice to just be a kid with my kids…and enjoy what really matters….my family:)  I put a pool/beach day look together the same way I would a regular outfit.  You can think me nutty…even I will admit, it kind of is….I just love to coordinate, what can I say?  So a quick little feature for you…hopefully you find some poolday inspiration:)

It is #MondayMingle time again…the stylish collab between myself, BonBon Rose Girls and Momtrends.  The link is being hosted by Nicole this week…be sure to pop by and visit them both to see what stylish adventures they have been up to.  Make it a great week!

Repeat Offender: White Skinnies and YellowBox

20140513_161542 (863x1024)
White Jeans Level 99 (sold out) similar here, Grey Tank C+C California (old)similar style on sale here, Black Blazer c/o Kohls (old)but surprisingly still available here, Necklace Sutton Stella and Dot available here, Sunglasses c/o Glasses.com available here, Shoes c/o YellowBox available here

Let me start off by saying, I bought two pairs of these distressed white jeans featured above.  I knew I would wear them a ton and I know how tricky (easily stained) white can be.  I reserve one pair for adult time and one pair for family activity.  So, before you judge for featuring them back to back (and wearing them nonstop) I wanted to share that minor detail:)

I know many clients and readers resist white denim…actually white anything.  Truth be told, it IS hard to keep whites white…and with small children, it is even harder.  I say use your smarts ladies….if you are heading to a backyard BBQ with freshly cut grass and ketchup as the main side, I would skip the white.  However, if you are heading out for a drink or to dinner with a friend, they are the perfect summertime look!

I also want to make mention of the fabulous wedges sent to me from YellowBox Shoes.  The brand is a new discovery for me….and you know when I love it, I share it!  These striped wedges are adorable and affordable.  A winning combination.  For some reason I like spending less on my summer shoe wardrobe and can definitely see myself investing in a few cute pairs from their site.  Infact, I just picked these up yesterday while out an about shopping for clients. Turns out, one of the boutiques I work with carries YellowBox shoes…even further confirmation they are a great brand!  Happy Shopping:)
