We're traveling to the Jersey Shore to "visit" with Carly and her cute boys as she shows us the best of the best at the Jersey Shore for summer!
Carly is a personal stylist, shopper, and fashion blogger at ThirtySomethingFashion. We adore her 30-something mom style. Let's check out her favorite places along the Jersey Shore!
Best Place to Get Ice cream? Let's start this tour off with ICE CREAM! The Jersey Shore is known for great ice cream, specifically from Hoffman's. In business since 1955, originally as a Carvel franchise, they made the switch to crafting their own delicious goodness in 1976 and haven't looked back. Everything is handmade from the best ingredients at their flagship location in Point Pleasant Beach. My boys are addicted to their chocolate milkshakes (made with hard not soft), but I am a Mint Chocolate Chip lover...it's literally the best thing in the world. With four locations along the shoreline, it is THE best place to stop in for a delicious treat with your family at the Jersey Shore. #yummy
Favorite Kids Clothing Store? I love shopping. In fact, it is my career, making it very easy for me to pick my favorite kids boutique. Sarah Kiddles, located in downtown Point Pleasant Beach, has the cutest curation of kids clothing, accessories and gifts. I love so many of the boutique brands they carry like Angel Dear, Hatley, and Vineyard Vines. They also carry a line of sweaters hand-loomed locally, completely washable and dryer safe. I have purchased so many for my boys but it is also my go-to gift for showers, birthdays, or any children's celebration. If you are in town, you must pop by this delightful store and snatch one up for your kiddies. #happyshopping
Five Tips for the Perfect Pumpkin Patch Visit
It's that time of the year again...pumpkin patch time! While I love a nice Pumpkin Spice Latte as much as the next fall lovin' girl...for me, the season is all about spending time with my family...and hopefully that time is spent outside as much as possible. If you're headed out ...read more

Save Money at a Ski Swap
Are the slopes in your future? If you want to save money on ski gear, consider a ski swap. A swap is a great way to buy and sell used equipment. Most swaps consist of a variety of gear, from brand new to used skis and snowboards to skis; from poles to boots to bindings and ...read more
Best Place to take Family Photos? Without a doubt, I love Sea Girt for family photos. It is one of the few places locally that the greenery meets the sea, so you are able to capture both the lushness as well as the wide open space of ocean in the background. With pretty strict rules about eating, drinking and smoking on the beach, you will find them to be the cleanest and safest the Jersey Shore has to offer. #pictureperfect
Favorite Place to Get Outdoors? If you come to the Jersey Shore you have to hit Jenkinsons Boardwalk. There is something for everyone including miniature golf, arcades, boardwalk games, amusement rides, and an aquarium all nestled along the most beautiful ocean views. Starting in late June and lasting through August, Jenkinsons offers a free Thursday night firework show and free Friday night movie on the beach. My extended family and I make this a summertime tradition and always hit at least a few weeks. Simply bring your blanket and enjoy the entertainment. #familyfun
I hope you have enjoyed some highlights from the beautiful Jersey Shore. As we reach our seventh year residing in our seaside town, I can't imagine living anywhere else. You can keep up with my family and our style on my blog ThirtySomethingFashion, Instagram or Facebook! Hope to hear from you:) #welcometomyworld
