Camo Comfy

Anyone who knows me – knows leopard and camo are always in my closet. Too much is never enough (done tastefully, of course).

These camo pants (check out these that under $40!!) are one of my favorites and I have many variations – dark, light … you just never know what shade depending on my mood! Ha!

I received these New Balance shoes and fell in love at first sight. Could they be any cuter? I have worn them numerous time (see here) and this was the latest weekend outfit pairing my favorite camo jeans with my new favorite tennies!

Top, Jeans, Shoes

The pink top that compliments the pink shoes and BAM, comfy and camo go perfectly together!

We are having so much fun shopping for SPRING with all of our clients, stay tuned for more great looks!

Want more pink, comfy camo looks?

Happy SPRING!

Plaid Shirts and Panama Hats

One of my favorite looks; i’m sporting it today.  A plaid shirt by Rails, my Panama hat from J Crew, distressed skinnies by AG, and my oldest of old (but still in great shape) Jimmy Choo flats.  Such an easy but cute outfit to throw on and run around town!  In fact, a friend at school pick up stopped me earlier and said, that is how ALL Fairfield county Moms should look, you are so cute today!  Needless to say, she made my day.

Here are some examples of how to throw it together via Pinterest, and of course you can shop some of my favorites below too.  Happy Spring!

Peach Discover Your Perfect Tour Houston

Houston, we DID it!

As many of you know, we just had the Houston Perfect Tour this past week and it was a HUGE success! Thank you to all of you for coming out – it could not have been sweeter.

Taking place at the Westing Galleria, we pampered ourselves all day long and introduce the Peach line to our new and existing customers. They fell in love.  Champagne, manicures, massages, jewelry shopping, skin consultations – could you ask for anything more? Oh wait – you entered an adorable cabana to get perfect measured into the perfect fit for a bra!

A few snapshots from the day…

Spring Break Style

We recently went on Spring Break – and after this loooooong winter here in Connecticut, we NEEDED it!  I was super excited to break out some of my old and new favorites for our dinners out after long days at Disney and the pool.  If you follow me on Instagram (molliestylespies) then you’ve probably seen these pictures, but I wanted to include some shop-able spring break style links for those of you who might be interested. Oh- and some cute pics of my kiddos too.

Night out at the California Grill in the Contemporary Hotel (soooo good!)  Also, my husband is horrified that I posted this pic of him, oops!

Look at these cuties. My daughter is wearing her favorite dress of the moment by Joah Love (found at Peek a Boutique in Northbrook, IL) , and my son has a KC shirt on from Charlie Hustle (find it at Little House in Kansas City).

Had to show a blurry (yet cute) pic of my whole family. My Mom, Dad, and sister joined us at Disney for this great trip!

 

After our trip to Disney, we headed to Miami’s Bal Harbour for a couple of days to chill out. This picture is taken in the gorgeous St Regis hotel lobby. We’re DEFINITELY going back!

Laugh with me about my kids’ faces – they were DONE with pictures by this point in the trip. But, let’s talk about my favorite new pair of shoes. My Stuart Weitzman gladiators.

Of course, my new favorite Kooba bag (the Mini Jonnie in Earth Python to be specific) came with me again.

Just had to share this amazing view of the St Regis grounds and then the ocean from our hotel room. Picturesque!

Online Resale with Poshmark & The Wrld

These past couple of months, i’ve taken a hard look at my closet.  What I need, what I don’t need, and what I can sell.  I have been using consignment shops ever since I was a girl – my Mom used to take my things for extra cash when I was little, and as an adult I have adopted the same habit.  If you take really good care of your things, you can make some great money by selling them when you’re kind of over them.

I used to go old school – taking my things to an actual shop.  But now, I mostly sell my things online.  For lower end items, I am a big Poshmark fan.  It’s an app and it is super easy to use.  You just take a picture of your item, describe it, price, and list.  SO easy!  To find and follow me on Poshmark, my user name is mcmilano77.

For higher end items, I just had a great (and super easy) experience with The Wrld. Formerly called Material Wrld, you can send your items to them with a prepaid label, they will decide what they’ll take and then email you an offer.  You can accept the offer, or decline, and if you decline, they will send your items back to you or donate.  If you choose to accept their offer, you will get to choose a gift certificate to one of the following retailers:  Shopbop,  Saks, Bloomingdales, Steven Alan, Barneys, Neimans, or Nordstroms.  Amazing!

From my items I sold to The Wrld, I netted $275.  I chose a gift certificate to Shopbop, and now the question is…..what do I ‘need?’  Well…..I can’t stop thinking about getting a fabulous pair of gladiator sandals.  The ones that go all the way up your calf.  Some of my favorite looks with these sandals via Pinterest:

Houston Weekend Recap: Vintage Antiquing

The words vintage and antiques.  In my world, that is similar to ‘You had me at hello’.

Clothes, furniture, books, you name it … I love most everything vintage and antiquing is pure joy to me  –  this weekend was the perfect combination of those two words, the Vintique Flea in Houston!

IMG_8745

After church on Sunday, we head straight down to this adorable market to find rustic home decor, the most darling vintage clothing and jewelry and incredible architectural salvage.  As I strolled the aisle of treasures my husband and girls were savoring the food trucks. (Doesn’t food always make for happy campers?)

The lobster tacos were UUHHHmazing from Cousins Maine Lobster, we also tried the BBQ Brisket Egg Rolls from Wokker Texas Ranger – so yummy!

IMG_8738

I can’t tell you how much I love being in a city that has these types of events – it brings us back to our many years in Chicago and we try and frequent them whenever we can.

I was so happy to capture this moment of my girls, I can only hope they stay this close forever!!! (clothing is Matilda Jane)

We had a great day of shopping and will be back!
