Funky vs Classic

Skirt: Moon River / Tank Top: Old Navy / Button Down: Gap / Shoes: Tory Burch / Purse: Summer & Rosè / Clip: Amazon 

Of all the trends I’ve seen popping up recently, I would have said the one I was least likely to try would be neon. Outside of some super bright swimsuits, it was something so out of my comfort zone it just never really entered my radar. I have however been obsessed with this cheetah print Par Realisation skirt since it first started showing up on my instagram feed all over last year—I just couldn’t justify the price point because I simply don’t wear skirts often enough, but this Moon River one in neon green immediately reminded me of it. Though I may invest in a more classic style like the more traditional Par Realisation one, this helped to scratch that itch for now. 

Pineapple Vice

Summer’s just around the corner, and I absolutely cannot wait! I’m heading to Palm Springs a week from today, and though I’m not poolside yet, I couldn’t help but wear this top that I bought for my trip. Its bright, fun and makes me even more excited for the rising temperatures and summer adventures yet to come! 

Happy Friday!

Xoxo,

Jess

Make a Statement

Jacket: Veda / Top: Daydreamer / Jeans: Gap / Boots: Topshop / Sunglasses: Diff via FabFitFun
I love that this jacket dresses up a simple tank top and jeans, and makes it a standout, effortlessly cool outfit. When paired with magenta snakeprint boots, it adds a flair of rebelliousness without feeling like I’m trying too hard. Classic jackets are what I’ve been focused on adding to my closet this last year, but I’d be lying if I said this Veda one didn’t have me questioning whether I need a few good, flashy statement ones too.

Pastel Paradise


Dress: Slate & Willow / Coat: Althea / Boots: Gap / Purse: H&M

The mornings have been exceptionally cold and gloomy these past few days, so to combat that (and my need to match the sky apparently), I forced myself to turn away from all the greys and blacks in my wardrobe and embrace spring colors. I pulled out my favorite pastel pink coat, and threw on my favorite new booties. As another unexpected playful pop, I embraced my inner 90s child and added a string rainbow of hair clips across my head.

The Ultimate Hack

Jumpsuit: The Fifth Label / Camisole: Goldhawk Clothing / Jacket: Old Navy/ Shoes: Alberta / Purse: Luella

Most women I know would have the same complaint as I do when it comes to jumpsuits–stripping bare whenever the needs arises to relieve ones bladder. But, sometimes its simply worth it. This jumpsuit as lovely and chic as it is, was simply too lowcut to wear to work, so I brainstormed for a bit, and decided to see if I could layer a silk and lace camisole underneath it for a bit more coverage. Not only did it add an extra layer and element to an already fun outfit, it also made every trip to the restroom that much more comfortable!

Let’s Talk Rainbows


From simple to vibrant, this trend is one that brings a smile to my face every time. During the winter months I tend to stick to pretty neutral colors, but as soon as the temperatures start to rise, my color palette becomes much more vibrant. I also love a good, kitschy item, so this trend is everything I love rolled into one. Whether it’s a simple necklace like the one above, or an all out rainbow striped dress, there’s a way to incorporate this trend in regardless of your style.
Below are some of the other rainbow items I’m currently loving:

1. These jeweled slides would look perfect with a concert tee and cut offs. 

2. A colorful crocheted swimsuit perfect for frolicking in the sun.

3. The perfect date night dress.

4. This bag that would elevate even the most basic of outfits. 

5. And the perfect tee to go with it. 

High Voltage

Shirt: Ross / Dress: H&M / Shoes: Sam Edelman / Purse: Luella

Now, don’t get me wrong, not all concert tees are created equal, but whether you prefer vintage or just a good design that pays homage to a band that you love, when you find one that speaks to you it’s worth the splurge! They are the ultimate closet staple (possibly right after a good pair of denim), and a very personal one at that. They speak to the kind of music you like, or bands you love, and it’s such a great way to add interest to any outfit! I grew up listening to AC/DC with my dad, so when I saw this on a random trip to Ross I had to buy it. It reminds me of found memories and is a piece that makes me smile every time I spot it in my closet now.
