Make New Friends, But Keep the Old…

Edited by AsheMischief
Because fashion bloggers love both silver & gold!

Okay, that was a bit of a cheesy, childhood song for those Stateside, but I did notice one thing this week– fresh new faces and old familiar ones. From long time contributors like Mademoiselle Robot and The Musings of Ondo Lady, to new (-to-me) Our Ocean, Links á la Mode is an amazing way to meet new bloggers and discover new territories. Think of today as Make a New Friend Day on Links á la Mode…read new blogs for a fresh dose of inspiration and revisit your favorites to remember why you love them!

As always, we’ve got a delightful mash-up of posts, too… from how to score review samples to a thoughtful post on The Uniform Project and lots of great summer clothes and jewelry. Be sure to check out the forums too, as there are several great contests going on!

Island Style Pick: Wood & Bead Bracelet

Friday, July 10th, 2009 | Fashion, Photos, Style Picks | 4 Comments

Meilily Island Style Pick:  Wood & Bead Bracelets

Meilily Island Style Pick: Wood & Bead Bracelets

Found this totally awesome wood and bead bracelet in Kauai, and just had to bring it back with me. As an accessory, I think it will go exceptionally well with brown, tan, and white outfits.

The stretch beaded strands of this bracelet are feminine and exotic. I also love how the wood piece is lightweight, tropical, and fresh, yet ever-so-slightly chunky.

Beach Vacation Style Pick: Affordable Active Swimwear

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009 | Fashion, Photos, Style Picks | 1 Comment

Meilily is on vacation in Kauai this week…
I probably won’t be updating as much when I’m away, and instead hope to do as much snorkeling, hiking, beach-sitting, photo-taking, ooh-ing and aaah-ing as possible…

Meilily Style Pick:  Merona Olive Swim Tankini & Swim Skirt

Meilily Style Pick: Merona Olive Swim Tankini & Swim Skirt

Meilily Beach Vacation Style Pick!

In line with the beach vacation theme, here is a great swimsuit find from… Target (of all places) that works great for active beach vacations. I just tried it out during a day full of snorkeling and wandering about town, so this style pick is tried and true!

While many of you may not consider stores like Target a one-stop vacation wear shop, I found a good-coverage two-piece tankini swimsuit with swim skirt from Target’s Merona clothing line for only $19.99 each piece. Given that all the swimsuits I had been looking at (J.Crew, Athleta, Victoria’s Secret) were either too expensive for my current budget (over $40 per piece), oddly patterned, or too skimpy (think “coming-off-in-the-next-wave“), this Merona swim outfit was a lucky find! It’s perfect for transitioning easily from street to swim, especially since the swim skirt has an attached bikini bottom!

Happy Swimming! from Meilily
