Tropical Summer

   

  

  

  

  

 I have a lot of neutrals and solids in my closet…so when I find a print I love, I go for it. This tank top and short set by MinkPink is the perfect little summer pairing. The tropical print is refreshing without being “touristy.” And it’s soooo comfy! Added bonus: you can pair both pieces with other separates. The shorts look fab with a graphic tee!

My set is from LaLa Couture Boutique but it is sold out. Revolve has the print in a romper that’s also super cute. The shoes are the Steve Madden Dondde sandal…available at Macy’s. The clutch, by GiGi NY, comes in a variety of colors, order yours from LaLa Couture (call 954-712-1100 to order and follow them on instagram to see new goodies! @lalacouturegirl). 

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!

XOXO,

 Graphic tees and ripped up denim? Yes, please! These are go-tos in my closet. I love that One Teaspoon takes distressed to a whole new level. Although my mom would tell me I need new jeans (without holes)…lol. 

And of course ripped denim always looks good with Manolos!

Shop the look at LaLa Couture Boutique. Call 954-712-1100 to order. 

Pineapple Print

   

  

  

 Pineapple print is a big trend for summer, and I was thrilled when Rails LA put the print on my favorite shirt…the Britt rolled sleeve. Lightweight and easy, perfect for the summer heat. I paired it with Arizona Birkenstocks, a leather crossbody from Hammitt LA, and my favorite One Teaspoon Bandits. 

Get the look at LaLa Couture Boutique. Call 954-712-1100 to order.  

XOXO,

White Mini

   

  

  

  

 The perfect little summer dress…the Pina Colada Mini by For Love and Lemons. It’s the perfect day dress or poolside coverup. Add a real pina colada and you’re set. Find the dress here.

My boater hat from J Crew is sold out in this color, but I also love it in the navy.

Grab a pair of Quay Australia sunnies from LaLa Couture Boutique (call 954-712-1100 to order- they ship free!)

The shoes are by Steve Madden…super comfy, affordable and chic.

Thanks for checking out the blog!

XOXO,

The Shirt Dress

    
      
   
Since it’s bodering on scorching here in South Florida, I like to keep my summer outfits light and airy. That’s why I LOVE this shirt dress. It’s casual, easy and flattering. It’s by a brand called Glam and they sell these dresses at LaLa Couture. I have it in so many colors! My favorite is the pink (and that happens to be my hubby’s fave color on me!) Their summer colors are on sale now and it’s less than $50! Call 954-712-1100 to order. 

The sandals are by Joie and are currently on sale on their website here. It’s one of the best purchases I’ve made! Plus there are three colors to choose from and an additional 20% off through August 3rd.

My sunglasses are by Quay Australia, also available at LaLa (bonus-they’re $39!) My handbag is the Amorous Satchel in biscuit by Rebecca Minkoff. By the time I posted this blog it had sold out, but the white is just as beautiful for summer and is also on sale here.

Happy sale shopping!

XOXO,

Molly

Black and White is Always Right

   

  

  

  

There’s no replacing the classic look of black and white. Although I am a huge fan of bold color, especially for summer, I love to tone it down every once in a while. 

I am so excited that slides have come back into style! It does take me back to my college days…but as a new mom I’m more excited about the comfort. I sprung for some tan Birkenstocks but also wanted  other colors and didn’t want to break the bank. These are from Forever21. They’re comfy and on trend. I sized up a half size.

My entire outfit (minus the shoes) is from LaLa Couture Boutique. The jogger shorts are by Heather. Tank is from Chaser paired with a lace Coobie bra. Sunnies are by Quay Australia and are available for purchase at LaLa. Call 954-712-1100 to order. 
XOXO, 

Molly


Pretty in PinkBlush: What to Wear After Baby

purple dress 2purple dress 3purple dress 1kimono 2 kimono 3 kimono 4 It’s one of the biggest fashion dilemmas a postpartum mom can face: how to look trendy while nursing.  As if nursing wasn’t hard enough, new moms are faced with the challenge of finding comfortable, fashionable pieces that make nursing a breeze. And if your baby is anything like my baby, he is always hungry!

Let’s face it- there isn’t much out there by way of cute maternity/nursing clothing. That’s why I was so excited to find PinkBlush. Not only do they have a cute, affordable and trendy women’s line, they also have maternity as well as nursing clothing. Score!

I love this ruffled dress for a few reasons. First, the ruffle hides some of the extra baby weight. Second, it’s got a zipper down the center- talk about perfect for nursing! Third, it’s super lightweight for summer. I paired it with a denim vest and gladiator sandals.

For anyone that knows my style, I LOVE cardigans/kimonos or anything I can throw on over a simple outfit to make it pop. Bonus: this cardigan can be worn before and after pregnancy and can double as a nursing cover! Here I paired it with a simple camisole, denim shorts and gladiator sandals.

Mexico, I Love You

DSC_0308DSC_0224

Traveling: my second love. My husband and I have been lucky enough to do a lot of traveling over the years, and one of our favorite destinations is Mexico. We have seen and explored many parts of this beautiful country; from Mexico City to La Paz to our latest vacation destination: Puerto Vallarta.

DSC_0417

Despite the 90 degree weather and ultra intense humidity (that’s saying a lot from this Florida gal), we were able to enjoy all that this coastal town had to offer. We wandered through Zona Romantica (the Romantic Zone) and the Malecón where the streets were filled with the aroma of Mexican spices and local vendors setting up their shops. I got a lot of looks and compliments on my sandals 🙂

DSC_0295

Stopping for a refreshing Michelada (beer and lime juice with spices), we realized that we were some of the only Americans in town. Puerto Vallarta is where the Mexican people  come to vacation.

My husband and I have never been “resort” type of people…always choosing to stay more in more rustic places. Don’t get me wrong, I love a 5-star hotel, but when we have the chance, we prefer to be a little bit more off-the-beaten-path. A bit more authentic 🙂

We stayed in a beautiful Villa, and score…it was very inexpensive and we had a wonderful local woman cook for us. Waking up every morning to freshly made chilaquiles and guacamole could make a girl stay here forever. By far my favorite part of the villa was the pool and the view overlooking the Bay of Banderas. It was breathtaking to say the least.

I enjoyed putting outfits together for this trip; there were a few things I wanted to wear but couldn’t due to the extremely hot temperatures.

All in all, we truly enjoyed our stay in Puerto Vallarta. Hasta la próxima, México!

Made in the USA

As we transition from summer to fall here in South Florida, I’ll soon be retiring the shorts for jeans, but for now I’m loving all shorts by One Teaspoon. I can’t get enough! There are no other shorts like them; they have distressed detailing and a super sexy fit that shows off a bit of leg.

351-lala-styled-7-22-14

Booties with shorts create a great street style look. These Sam Edelmann moto booties remind me of the Chloe Suzanna Stud Bootie (minus the studs and the price tag.) Bonus: they are ridiculously comfortable.

One of my favorite brands of graphic tees is Chaser. Their fabric is super soft and their graphics are uber cool. I happen to LOVE the “Made in the USA” eagle tank because it’s a little bit rock-n-roll.My accessories are from various places. I usually lean toward wearing more gold, but I loved silver with this outfit; it also brings out the silver detailing on the boots. I added one of my favorite floppy hats to complete the look.

My dear friend and photographer, Kristin Potenti and I had a really fun time shooting in this location. Of course I had to take a photo with the “No Trespassing” sign. A bit mischievous, I know 🙂

We also happened to catch the train as it was going by…

Her Royal Catness

web-080-lala-styled-7-22-14

Royal blue- one of my all-time favorite colors. It’s a shade that is flattering on every skin tone. I mixed up the look by adding a touch of leopard and leather (it’s vegan leather.)

This leopard top comes from one of my favorite emerging designers, Brittany Rose Collections. Check out her website here.

A simple black heel with an ankle strap adds sex appeal. I am loving the new line by Schutz! Top it off with a leather talon cuff by Ted Rossi (my favorite and most-worn accessory) and you’ve got yourself the perfect nighttime outfit.
