What do you do when there’s no professional photographer or camera? You prop your phone up on the desk, set a timer, and strike a pose. Today, I was having a bit of melancholy mid-week moment. It only took a silly expression, bizarre pose, and some attitude to turn the day around. Keep the positive energy flowing in 2016.

Summertime Eccentricities: Damn It’s Hot!

unnamed

Mixing it up is the key to success. I was certain that this look would not work but luckily I was wrong. All the pieces seem to fight each other but photographed like a happy family. I would list the items in this look but none of this stuff is new and I just pulled the pieces out of my closet. I am lower middle class and most times it isn’t in the budget to buy a new outfit for a blog post. But I hope you guys like the look.

Have a great start to your week!

Xoxo,

Jared

A Cliche That Works!

I am a lot of things but obvious is not one of those things. I pride myself on being an original (I like to think that I am) and someone who is subversive by nature. Imagine my surprise when I styled this look for my second personal style post. Florals and white jeans scream “classic spring!” Oddly enough the look worked. There is something about this look that also screams “Havanna nights” but in a good way. The lesson learned from this fashion adventure…cliches are not always a bad thing.

Beyoncé: Style Inspiration for Fall!

Wrap Dress Inspiration
What can be more easy, breezy, and beautiful than a great fitting wrap dress? I blame DVF for making the wrap dress a wardrobe staple and the iconic style still works for Fall 2014. There are still plenty of mild and warm days left to wear the style. You can even choose a long sleeve wrap dress for the cooler days.
The style is all about simplicity so keep your look simple. Just add a statement bag, fab shoes, and maybe a cool necklace and/or bangles. Just make sure the dress fits. Fit is essential for wrap dresses. Nothing should be hanging, sagging, or protruding out! See the above fashion set for inspiration. We may not all be able to rock a wrap like Queen Bey but there is no harm in trying. Shopping and clothing details are below.

Nothing can compare to a fantastic ice cream cone. They are essential here in the south; we Southerners have to keep cool during the hot humid days. But heat or no heat, nothing will stop me from wearing one of my favorite shirts. I just love the look of leopard against a garnet blazer and navy blue shorts. The leopard print really makes the jewel tones pop. I am not sure if it was the ice cream, but I always feel cool rocking leopard.

Working Woman Wednesday!
Labor Day always marks the end of Summer. Some of us are happy to say goodbye to heatwaves and humidity but there are still plenty of warm days left on the calendar.
The seasons are definitely transitioning and so should your style. But it only takes a few additions and edits to be pre-Fall and Fall street style ready!
Tip #1:
Keep the tank top. There are still hot days left. Instead of looking like you’re going to a pool party throw a lightweight blazer over the tank. And opt for a tank that has a bit of a structured feel and a hint of color.
Tip # 2:
Jeans are essential for pre-Fall and Fall. They are comfortable and easy to wear. They also are perfect for staying warm and chic during the upcoming cooler evenings.
Tip #3:
This summer was all about the statement clutch. As you transition, go back to the classic. A great leather bag with a chain detail is perfect! It elevates any look by adding an air of class and sophistication.
There are numerous ways to incorporate these tips into your own personal style. If you like the items in the above layout, click the photo for the shopping deets. Have fun upgrading and editing . It’s Working Woman Wednesday!
