Monday Mingle: Jewel Tones, Leopard and Fur…Oh My!

monday mingle

It’s Monday once again, which means it’s Monday Mingle time! We, along with Momtrends and Glamamom, would like to welcome you to our weekly fashion focused link up!

Unfortunately, the bug that Meg and I brought home from our return flight from Costa Rica has reared its ugly head again. I thought I would spare you the frightening photos that would surely result if I attempted an outfit post.

Instead, I decided to share with you a look that I created for a little contest that Closet Fashionista is running with J.C. Penney’s Call it Spring line.

Incorporating too many trends into one look can be a slippery slope. If you do it in a subtle way, however, it can be quite successful! I just love the combination of the emerald frock, with the amethyst finger candy and fur and animal print accessories. What do you think lovelies? Would you rock an ensemble like this one? One of our lovely Rosebuds, Bravoe Runway, did a great job at styling three current trends last week!

Don’t forget to link up your style/fashion post below! If you do, you’ll be entered to win these gorgeous baubles from T+J Designs! Make sure you pop on over to their fabulous shop and tell us what else you’re loving in it!

    I love the ensemble you put together, that teal dress is beautiful! Love the color … its in the same family as the skirt I wore this weekend, my fave color lately, so happy!

    Hope you feel better soon!

    I love it Kristin–could easily see myself in this little number (outfit?)

    Hope you feel better soon! I think a peanut butter cup is particularly helpful when sick. Okay, maybe two.

    I have to say JCP is making some really cute things available! I got the BEST long sleeve maxi dress there this weekend after seeing it in the latest People Style watch magazine! :)
