Happy Friday! I’m celebrating today with #NaturesBlends #FashionFriday

Disclosure: Thanks to Poland Spring® Brand Nature’s Blends™ Fruit Flavored Beverages for sponsoring today’s discussion. 

Naturally, I celebrate the end of summer by hitting the beach and reconnecting with my family at our end of summer BBQ.  So for today’s fashion friday, I’m showcasing the different fashion styles for end of summer celebration. If you’re a beach bum, then you might like the beach ready look i picked out this week and if your style is more laid back, BBQ Fashionista then let me know what you think of this weeks pick.

Nature celebrates in amazing ways everyday with rainbows, ocean breezes, fall leaves and bright sunny weather that make everyone happy. As Fridays are a natural day of celebration after a long workweek, Nature’s Blends is celebrating each Friday on Facebook so please visit their Poland Spring Facebook Page  to share your own natural celebration, a celebration you see in nature or your own comparison of the two.

    I like the BBQ tops and short set you picked out. The heels really add something to the casual look.

    I absolutely love these outfits. Coral is actually one of my favorite colors to wear. And those shorts are perfect for my new mommy style I’ve taken on. I don’t like wearing shorts as short as I used to back in high school and college. Thanks for linking up to Mommy Monday this week! I hope you’ll come back and join us next week. Next Tuesday I’m also hosting the “What’s Your Style” Blog Hop for fashion, beauty, hair, design/decor bloggers to connect and gain more followers! 🙂
