Patiently Waiting

May 27, 2015

This fabulous outer-piece has been patiently waiting to make its way to the blog for quite sometime.  I haven't found the perfect time to wear it til recently; SD's weather has been all over the place! So what better time to wear it than now? (Trying to take advantage before the summer heat waves arrive.) I love how it has an edgy/chic style to it. Whether you pair it with basics or prints, it just works. This jacket will be making its way around just like my favorite sunnies seen here. I'm all about remixing!

Two Instead Of One

May 25, 2015

Wearing more than one print has always been a favorite of mine. Of course, the key here is to keep it at a two print minimum but still have fun with the look. I thought I'd give the skinny jeans a break and bring out my bell bottoms for a change. Exploring my closet for new finds is always fun. You'd be surprise the items you'd find. So in the spirit of change...let's make it two prints instead of one, shall we?

Blissful Berry

May 18, 2015

Let's just start by saying a girl can never have too many denim jackets, am I right? Dark wash, medium wash, light wash, you name it...I got it have it. Denim jackets are the perfect layering piece for any occasion. Seriously, you can wear it with any look (my kind of investment) and all year long! One of my favorite ways to wear it in spring and summer is with a pretty little dress just like this look. Easy does it! I couldn't say no to a pop of color, so I went with blissful berry lips and a berry colored clutch for a touch of glam.

J's Favorite: Black Denim Jeans

May 14, 2015


Never estimate the black denim trend…Every girl needs it! After reorganizing my closet, I've come across my favorite ripped black denim jeans that I've missed so much. The versatility of these bottoms are endless! Whether I decide to pair them with basics or prints; either way, I end up satisfied and feeling fabulously stylish! This is my current go-to style! black and comfort! <high-five>

I Feel Like A Woman

May 13, 2015

When one finds an affordable floral midi they must go for it! but one with pockets?!...Sold! Granted I'm a sucker for skinny jeans but for the love of fashion, I must get out of my comfort zone. The first look I envisioned with this skirt is exactly what I'm wearing. I love the simplicity and femininity it brings to the look. I feel like a woman! Not to mention, I can totally pull off a casual look by pairing the skirt with comfortable flat sandals, a graphic tee, and while I'm at it...a hat! How much more of a spring look can it get!

How To Wear Boyfriend Shorts

May 11, 2015

Finally, after mentioning boyfriend shorts in daintyjea's favorites, they finally made it to the blog! Who doesn't love bottoms that are loosely fit, yet stylish at the same time? Because these shorts are so baggy, the trick to styling them is to add some glam and sexiness to it. How is that you may ask? Add your favorite heels and a fitted jacket for a less masculine look and a more sophisticated/chic look, while at the same time keeping things balanced. I have to say, this is one of my favorite looks thus far!
