Travel Chic

Fashion / Uncategorized

There’s nothing I love more than traveling. Whether it’s for work or play, something about taking flight and getting out of dodge is certainly my cup of tea.

I travel often for work…especially heading to markets to buy for my boutique. It’s one of my favorite parts of the job. I get to see all of the upcoming trends, meet the designers, and get inspired by the gorgeous colors and fabrics for the upcoming seasons.

It can be challenging to dress trendy for traveling and also for being on my feet all day. I tend to head straight from the airport to market, and that’s really early in the am, and AFTER waking up and trying to get ready with a 19 month old. It can be challenging to say the least! I usually try to plan ahead, but sometimes I’ve got to just “throw it together.”

This morning was no exception. I am thankful I have these staple pieces in my closet that keep me comfy and stylish at the same time. Of course, a hat is a must for those rushed mornings.

I am OBSESSED with these workout leggings by Koral. They truly double as a liquid legging- you can wear them to work out or wear them out! They are incredibly comfy and flattering. I could live in them.

I paired it with an easy pullover I got from H&M ($24.99!) that is lightweight enough to wear in FL, and also good for layering when I get to my colder destination.

I just got these sneakers from Adidas and love them! They are like a cloud! I am a runner, so I wanted something that was stylish but also serves double duty: I can wear them out and about on the town or to the gym.

I’ve linked similar items to all of the styles I’m wearing below. Catch ya on the flip side when I get to my destination! Make sure to follow me on Instagram to see all of my latest #ootds @lala_styled.

The 3 Easy, Wearable Trends for Spring

cropped-img_4378.jpgSpring is in the air and fashion is in full bloom. Hot from the runways at New York’s Fashion Week, I chose the top three wearable and must-have trends for the upcoming season.

Off the shoulder tops dominated as spring’s hottest go-to piece. I am especially loving linen in soft pastel colors, such as lilac or pale pink. So go ahead, bare those shoulders as the temperatures rise.

Dainty floral prints dominated down the runway, especially skirts paired with bra tops. Designers pushed the envelope and mixed the feminine with a bit of sex appeal.

Chokers- my favorite 90’s revival- are here to stay for the season. From jeweled dazzlers to delicate lace to leather, anything goes. The key is to layer, layer, layer. Chokers work exceptionally well paired with long layered pendants.

 

 

 

February Faves

Hi all! I’m back after a crazy busy month to share with you my faves for the months of Feb.

anastasia

Shadow Couture World Traveler Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills– Ok, I was standing in Urban Outfitters in Times Square, hemming and hawing over an endless amount of eye shadow options. It was my first shopping outing after having the baby, and I was enticed by all of the shimmery, beautiful colors. A girl next to me picked up the shadow palette I was eyeing and couldn’t stop squealing from excitement that she had found it. “I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE for this!” she cried. Low and behold, it was the World Traveler Palette. Of course, I bought it. Her enthusiasm was so intense, I figured this palette must be the Valentino’s of eye shadow.

She was right- I soon came to find myself experimenting with all of the incredible colors- ranging from light peach to intense blue, and everything in between. The pigment in the shadow is absolutely incredible, and it lasts through many vodka-soda-lime nights.

I paid $39 for the palette and it’s going for over $100 on Ebay, apparently it is a limited edition. If you can get your hands on this shadow palette, it’s totally worth it!

sage spoonfuls_1429120012103_16824241_ver1.0_640_480

Sage Spoonfuls– For all of you mamas out there that intend to make your own baby food, I cannot say enough about Sage Spoonfuls! There is little information for new moms on how to feed your baby solid foods, what foods to try, etc.

I was delighted to receive the SS for my baby shower. Liza Huber created a beautiful book outlining what foods to feed baby as well as when to buy organic. Delicious and easy recipes (and some great unexpected food combos that baby will LOVE), plus awesome food jars that are stackable and so easy to travel with! I love the blender it comes with…it is much easier to use than a regular blender.

This makes a great gift for any mom-to-be! You can buy it at Target.

tsamma-watermelon-juice-high-res

Tsamma Juice– As a runner, I  am always looking for a refreshing juice that is packed with nutrients, tastes great, and keeps me hydrated. I love Tsamma watermelon juice because it fuels my body with electrolytes and there’s no added sugar! Believe it or not, there are over 1 1/2 lbs of watermelon cold-pressed and pasteurized in each bottle. You can buy it at the Fresh Market or online.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! I hope everyone had a wonderful February!

January’s Favorite Things

Leave a comment
baby / beauty / product reviews / Uncategorized

I am a lover of all things new; new products land at my door each day and I’m like a kid in a candy store. An overly excited guinea pig, if you will. While I’m more of a fashion blogger, I also love to review items and share my FAVES with my followers. Because what gal doesn’t love a good recommendation?

I have lots of favorite things…so I have decided to write a monthly blog post with my latest and greatest obsessions. Be it the latest mommy products (which seem to take up most of my current budget) to new, innovative brands, I’ll be collecting the best of the best and bringing them to you.

One other note- I am a HUGE proponent of small businesses and their products. If you are interested in me reviewing and featuring your product, feel free to reach out to me at lala_styled@mail.com.

kali 4

Kali Boxes– The organic era is upon us, and I am a huge believer in using pesticide free products. I was SO excited when my good friends and entrepreneurs Jonna Piira and Sara Shake came up with the revolutionary idea to create a monthly box of organic tampons. Not only do you receive the monthly box on autoship (and save those embarrassing moments of checking out with a box of those suckers at the grocery), but you also have the peace of mind knowing you are using ORGANIC. And, for an easy $25, you get the ‘pons, wipettes, and a fun product they change every month or so. This month it’s a gorgeous rosewater refresher spray. Kali is also socially conscience and donates $1 from every box sold to  Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation’s Adolescent Girl Campaign. How amazing is that?! Ladies, do your body a favor and sign up here. You’ll get $5 off your first box with code “ilovekali”.

coco

COCO Cocktail– If you LOVE coconut water like me and if you love an adult beverage like me, you will love that they have combined the two into a perfect tropical concoction. Meet COCO Cocktail, your new refreshing party favorite! It’s a convenient ready-to-drink beverage that offers only the highest quality ingredients. So rest assured, while you get a buzz, you’re also hydrating! COCO Cocktail is available at select WHOLE FOODS and Fresh Markets. For more information, check out their website.

joovy

The JOOVY SPOONAs a new mommy of a 7 month old spirited little boy, I was looking for the perfect walker. Not only does my little tot LOVE to move, but we are also very big into traveling and wanted something we could easily take with us. We were on a New Year’s trip to visit good friends when I discovered the JOOVY. It’s got a super sleek, modern design, and it’s easily foldable (and adjustable for height). But the best part is, it also doubles as a highchair! Easy storage, easy cleaning, and double functions make it a win-win for this traveling mama. BONUS: the padded seat is easily machine washable and this was a cinch to put together (much needed for this working mama!). Check out Joovy’s website here.

I hope you enjoyed this month’s favorite things! Stay tuned for February!

Fall Florals

 The leaves may be turning but that doesn’t stop me from wearing pretty florals. The key to staying true to the season is in the colors…look for navy, orange, purple or any other fall colors. I absolutely love this top by Daniel Rainn. I kept it modern by pairing it with flares. The denim is from a few seasons ago but another pair that would work is the Joy in Pulse by DL1961. You can shop my entire outfit at LaLa Couture Boutique.

 Fall is in the air and I couldn’t be more excited. 

The 70’s are back in style with flare denim topping the list. Luckliy, I have an amazing old pair in my closet by Fidelity. I’m also obssesing over the Joy in Pulse by DL1961 and the Girl Crush in Dustbowl by Current Elliott. Buy both from LaLa (954-712-1100 to order). The greatest thing about flares is they look good on even us short gals because they elongate the leg. Show off those gams girl! 

I paired mine with a basic silk tank by Bella Luxx and completed the look with my favorite handbag at the moment- this fringe stunner by Jennifer Haley (also available at LaLa).

Thanks for checking out the blog and remember you can always email me your style questions at Lala_styled@mail.com.

Rainy Days

Rainy days call for easy dresses and Hunter boots! The weather in South Florida has been less desirable, so I pulled out my favorite wellies and splashed in a few puddles. Why not?! 

One of my new additions to my wardrobe is this knit tee dress by Current Elliott. It’s super comfy and can be worn so many ways. It’s also a great fall transition piece. When it’s not raining I’ll pair it with booties and a leather jacket. Buy it here.

My handbag by Rebecca Minkoff is from a few seasons ago, but you can purchase a similar one here

Here’s to making rainy days more fashionable!

XOXO,

Molly

Vested

 One of my big must-haves for fall is a great vest. It’s an essential piece to inVEST in this fall 😊 This army green one by Current Elliott is my pick because you can wear it now as we transition to fall, and it goes with everything! 

I chose to style this with a summery casual outfit for a day of errands. Comfy sneaks, Current Elliott denim skirt and trusty J Crew tee were in need of a vest to create the transition look. The finishing touch is my amazing leather crossbody by Hammitt.

You can also pair this vest with a fitted dress, maxi dress, jeans, the options are endless! I’m sure you’ll see me post more style options in this awesome piece. Buy it here. There is also one left at LaLa Couture (as well as the handbag)–call 954-712-1100, mention my blog and get 10% off plus free shipping!

Pinstripes and Leopard

 These are two of my favorite things…

And they fit perfectly into my fall transition wardrobe. The fuzzy leopard flats juxtapose the summery pinstripes of the dress, making it a bit more “fall” like.

The shirtdress is by Glam and it’s such a score for $89! I practically live in it. LaLa Couture Boutique has them in stock so call to order before they are sold out. 954-712-1100 or you can iMessage them! Sales@lalacouture.com.

The Rebecca Minkoff bag (love love love this bag!) is also available at the store. The flats are by Nine West from a few seasons ago, but I found similar ones by J Crew.

Thanks for stoppong by the blog! You can always email (lala_styles@mail.com) me with fashion or style questions. Happy transitioning into fall!

XOXO,

Molly

Fall Transition

I can already taste the pumpkin spiced lattes, hear the crowd cheer of a football game, and feel the cool crisp breeze….ok so I’m dreaming a little bit…

But fall really is right the corner! It’s the time where we ditch the bright summer colors for rich earth tones and replace the sandals with booties. It’s FALL Y’ALL!

This outfit is mostly items I already had in my closet, since most fall styles are just now hitting the stores (plus it’s SO hot here in Florida that I wouldn’t be caught dead in cashmere right now…even for a blog post! 😝).

My white blazer is from Zara. Yes, you can wear a white blazer year round! To me it’s the perfect transition piece. Find a similar one here.

I paired it with faux leather shorts from Free People from many seasons ago (buy similar here), a silk tank by Rory Beca (new and available at LaLa Couture-call to order), and heels by Schutz

The leopard foldover clutch by Clare V is one of my favorite purchases for fall…it’s super roomy without being oversized. Last but certainly not least, my all time favorite go-to accessory is by none other than my favorite accessory designer Ted Rossi. You can special order the leather talon cuff from LaLa Couture Boutique-it comes in a variety of colors and styles. Call 954-712-1100.

Stay tuned to the blog and my instagram (@lala_styled) for more fall picks, how to style them and where to purchase. 

XOXO,

Molly
