THE ALL-IN-ONE aka JUMPSUIT IS HERE TO STAY!

Hello Sassy People:

The jumpsuit is everywhere! It has been trending for awhile and doesn't seem to be going anywhere!!!! Whether you're feeling super sassy, super sophisticated or super sexy you can't go wrong with this piece. In my opinion its versatility plays a large part in why it has been a major staple on and off the red carpet.
how to wear a jumpsuit www.simplysassysstyle.com
As you guys know I broke my ankle a few months ago so flats are my go to shoe for a while. Since I am such a "heel girl" this has been a hugeee struggle. I have literally had to go out and buy flats because I didn't own one pair; which says a lot about my non-versatile footwear! 

After several days of frustration I decided to stop whining and make it work, as soon as I changed my attitude the sassy yet comfy outfit I am wearing in this post came to mind.

Even though I can't wear my 4/5 inch heels I can accent my attire with bold accessories and still make a statement. So I decided to pair the all black ensemble with a bold lip color and these amazingggggly cute Italia-Independent shadesI absolutely love these shades! I received them while participating in Miami Swim Week 2014 at Escape Miami 2. #Supercute!!!!
Jumpsuit - TJ Maxx, Flats - Target, Bangles, Hoop Earrings - Annie Sez, Sunnies - Italia dependent, Necklace - Brighton

The key to working this piece is to find the right shape for your figure. Concentrate on making sure it is comfortably tailored at the waist to outline your figure. This will ensure that you look undeniably amazing!

Have A Happy Healthy, and Remember to Always... 
Stay Sassy!

GET YOUR FIRST TASTE OF WATERSTONE RESORT AND MARINA BOCA RATON

Boca Raton Beach Resorts www.simplysassysstyle.com
As my readers know, I absolutely love South Florida living, and even though I am always out on the town there are several hidden gems that I have yet to experience. The Waterstone Resort and Marina; previously known as The Bridge Hotel is one of those gems. This beauty is located right in the center of Boca Raton, sets on the Intracoastal Waterway just 300 yards from the beach, and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. Those facts alone make it a gem, but keep reading there is more!!!! 
Most evenings I purposefully take the scenic route home just to set eyes on the amazing resort, so I was super excited to find out that I was invited to attend a private media dinner. 
Upon arrival I was extremely impressed by the elegant yet relaxing ambiance. While settling in and chatting with the other attendees, the 1st course was served, consisting of a savory little bite called Rock Shrimp Ceviche. This beautifully decorated dish was topped with Plantain Chips and avocado, making each bite better than the next! Pairing Suggestion: Loveblock by Kim Crawford, a chilled and delicious white Sauvignon Blanc.
Next, on the menu was my favorite of the night, the amazing and very delicious, Pan Roasted Sea Scallop. The scallop was topped with a perfectly cooked Porcini Mushroom Butter that has me literally wishing I had another one at this very moment. Pairing Suggestion: Murietta’s Well, “The Whip”, Chardonnay Blend, Livermore Valley, California 2012
Then the extremely tasty and unique Torchio Pasta was served. The pasta is shaped like the base of a torch and topped with perfectly seasoned chicken, Crimini mushrooms and fresh pesto. Pairing Suggestion: Paul Hobbs, “Crossbarn”, Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast, California, 2013

I have to be honest, when going out to dinner I usually don't choose the salmon. However, when I visit this restaurant again I will make sure that I order the Chipotle Rubbed Salmon. The lovely fish is centered in creamed corn, and topped with picco de gallo and grilled shrimp. #Wow! You just can't get any better. Pairing Suggestion: Pali “Alphabets”, Pinot Noir, Wilamette Valley, Oregon, 2012.
Next, we dove into a beautifully delicious Coriander Crusted Rack of Lamb. Cooked medium rare and accompanied by a foie gras stuffed prune and port wine reduction, just thinking about it is still making my mouth water. Pairing Suggestion: Napa Cellars, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Calif 2012.
Last up not least came the scrumptious Molten Chocolate Cake with a hazelnut gelato. #Love!!!! I don't usually do wine with desserts, but the Roayl Tokaji, “Mad Cuvee”, Late Harvest was spectacular!

Great food, Great wine, Great company, Great experience! What more can you ask for! I can't wait to return! 

Special thanks to Waterstone Resort And Marina for the wonderful experience and tasty food! For more information about the establishment click Here. 

Have A Happy Healthy, and Remember to Always...
Stay Sassy!

HOW TO STYLE A KIMONO

Hello Sassy People:

September
 has been a month of Giveaway's for ssstyle. However, today I wanted to step back into the fashion world and bring you a few tips on styling the ever fabulous kimono.
kimono patterns www.simplysassysstyle.com

Like most, when I think of a kimono, I think of a traditional Japanese garment. But as we all know, fashion continuously evolves, and there are times when the names of elegant, traditional pieces are borrowed in order to make similar items extremely trendy and super chic. Stamping the name "kimono" on a "cardigan" was simply brilliant. It has become the go to piece for most fashionista's, such as myself.

Cardigan's Kimono's are very light and airy making them perfect for warmer climate's. They provide great coverage, come in all lengths and patterns, while providing a touch of class to the most basic outfit. To be honest, I have purchased about 7 over this past year, and I am praying that I run across a traditional one while out thrifting. If I could find a traditional Japanese kimono that would make me extremely happy! Lol!

Even though they can be worn with pretty much everything, on this day I decided to break up an all black ensemble by adding one with a really pretty pattern. The look it extremely comfortable, but it can still be worn when going out to eat, attending an event or just hanging out and about around town.

Kimono, Bangles, Hoop Earrings - Annie SezCropped Tee - Ross, Calvin Klein Skirt - Goodwill, Flats - Target, Body Chain - Boutique in Fl, Hair Jewelry - Gifted 

If you are thinking of purchasing a kimono and having doubts, you should go ahead and make that move. They are super cute, comfy and very affordable! You can't go wrong!

Have A Happy Healthy, and Remember to Always... 
Stay Sassy!

CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY WEEK - $100 AMAZON GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY

Hello Sassy People:


Did you know that motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children age 1 to 13 in the USA? The fatality rate could be reduced by about half if the correct child safety seat were always used.
#TheRightSeat


Bloggin' Mamas is supporting the Ad Council and The Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) by sharing the word about Child Passenger Safety Week this week (September 14-20).

One of the goals of Child Passenger Safety Week is to encourage parents and caregivers to visit SaferCar.gov/TheRightSeat; to determine if their child is in the right seat for his or her age and size and to locate a car seat check event in their area. Additionally, parents and caregivers should be sure to register their child’s car seat with the manufacturer so as to be informed in the event of a recall.

Safety seats, if used correctly, dramatically reduce the risk of fatality or injury to children. However, research shows that three out of every four car seats are not used correctly, meaning the child is not in the correct car seat for their age, height and weight, or the car seat is not installed correctly. In 2012, over one third (37%) of children killed in car crashes were not in car seats or wearing seat belts.

Resources

o Installation Resources: If a car seat is not installed correctly, your child's safety could be in danger. Every car seat has different installation instructions. You can find resources and tips here to help you get “the right fit” on your car seats: http://www.safercar.gov/parents/RightFit.htm;

o Free Car Seat Checks: During Child Passenger Safety Week, there will be more than 600 events in 45 states across the country, where certified child passenger safety technicians will inspect car seats and show parents and caregivers how to correctly install and use them. In most cases, this service is free of charge. Locate a car seat check event here: http://www.safercar.gov/cpsApp/cps/index.htm?;

Car Seat Safety Tips:
  • Find a car seat that fits your child. As children grow, how they sit in your car will change. Make sure the car seat you purchase is designed to fit your child’s current size and age.
  • Not all car seats fit in all vehicles so test the car seat you plan to buy to make sure it fits well in your vehicle.
  • Before putting your child in a car seat, read the manufacturer’s instructions so you know how your car seat works.
  • All-in-One car seats offer you the advantage of using the same seat for the following positions: rear-facing, forward-facing with harness, then booster. These seats typically have higher height and weight limits for the rear-facing position, allowing you to keep your child rear-facing for a longer period of time.
  • Remember, the best car seat is the one that fits your child properly, is easy to use, and fits in your vehicle correctly. The information here can help you choose the right seat for your child. Keep in mind that:
o Your child under age 1 should always ride in a rear-facing car seat.

o Children ages 1-3 should be kept rear-facing as long as possible.

o Keep your child in the back seat at least through age 12.

Be certain you've installed your car seat correctly by having it checked at an inspection station or by a certified child passenger safety technician. Bring the Car Seat Instructions AND the Vehicle Owner’s Manual with you to a seat check appointment!

Check out this Infograph to help you check if you have #TheRightSeat and join @NHTSAgov on 9/17/14 from 3p-4p EST for a Twitter Chat where you can ask questions you might have about your car seat.

Free blogger signup

And to make sure you have #TheRightSeat, Bloggin' Mamas is giving away a $100 Amazon giftcard so you can buy one!

Giveaway begins September 17th, 2014 at 12:01 am and ends October 1st, 2014 at 11:59 pm EST. Open to US residents age 18 and older. Winner will be selected by Random.org and be notified by email. See Rafflecopter widget below for full terms & conditions.


Goodluck Sassy Momas!!!!
