Red carpet season officially kicked off last night with the 2017 Emmys and the stars were shining bright. Literally. Sparkly embellishments and metallic gowns were a popular choice, along with blush pink continuing its reign. Some celebs opted for color, which was a welcome refresh from the bevy of softer hues. A few ladies - who shall go unnamed - forgot to stop at the tailor as their dresses were rather ill-fitting, while others wore cuts that didn't leave much to the imagination. Since at Mom Style Lab we prefer to focus on the positive, here are the stars that captured our best-dressed title. ...Read more.

I've always been a huge fan of the Royal Palms Resort & Spa -- from the gorgeous property to the award-winning T. Cook's restaurant which never disappoints. It's right down the street from our house, but once I'm there I immediately feel like I'm on vacation somewhere in the Mediterranean. The beautiful architecture and lush grounds are the perfect backdrop for a relaxing vacation or staycation. We also like to pop into the bar on the weekends for a drink and to enjoy the live music -- generally a talented local singer/guitarist is playing songs we all recognize, ranging from the '70s to now. Love! Needless to ...Read more.
