Monica Beeman, 36, looked sleek and summer chic at the KnotFriends.com launch party at the Waterfront Hotel, while incorporating the party's tie theme into her look. The Vines to Vino owner and personal trainer says her style is usually "athletic." "This is me dressed up. When I go out it's trendy/preppy." On this night out, she sported a white button down Gap shirt with bright tangerine Old Navy shorts and natural leather Guess platforms. She bought her blue-trimmed natural canvas Jack Gomme handbag at a Hoboken, N.J., boutique several years ago. And her tie? "It's my 6-year-old son, Trevor's, from The Children's Place. Trevor loves his ties, so I actually had a collection to choose from."
