weekly inspiration

milan fashion week

Summer kicked off last Friday and we are in full swing.  Lucky for us New Yorkers, we’ve had a run of amazing weather despite the humidity spike this past week.  I’ll take this over rain any day of the week and twice on Sunday.  Weather like this makes for a lot of rooftop cocktails and dining al fresco which thus enables us to wear our cutest summery ensembles.  This week I’ve pulled together a a few of my faves to inspire and keep you looking and feeling cool all season long.  Hope you have a fantastic weekend everyone!   xx jenny

Head-to-toe of the same print or pattern is not for everyone, especially when it’s uber bold like here and here.  I have an appreciation for fashionistas who are courageous enough to embrace this trend wholeheartedly but think I’d prefer to just dabble in it then go all the way.  Stripes are safer since they are clean and linear, making things much easier on the eye.  Gwyneth’s black and white version is pretty risk free and keeps it safe while still achieving the overall trend.  What do you think?  Will you give it a shot?  Shop the look here.

splurge vs. steal

zara topI’m not a huge proponent of spending tons of money on clothing that doesn’t have a long shelf life.  I’ll splurge on pieces that are timeless and classic but am conservative when it comes to a passing fad.  I’m well aware that although I like fashion that is trend right – there is a high probability that next season I will be over it.  Thank god for stores like zara who redo styles taken straight from the runway without the designer price tags.  I happened upon this floral number there last week which certainly feeds my appetite for (currently trending) floral and at a price point of $79.90 (it’s now $59.99 on sale!) I couldn’t resist scooping it up.  I’ll be pairing this pretty summer top with something like this…

Happy Friday!  I hope you had a great week and have something fantastic planned for the next couple of days off.  Rounding out this weeks posts I will leave you with a few quotes said by people from Albert Einstein to Coco Chanel.  Some are deeper than others but more importantly they are all aligned with the Your Soul Style philosophy.  We all get caught up in the noise of fashion that surrounds us, sometimes losing ourselves because of the overwhelming external influences that pull is in a million directions.  But these messages remind us of the true definition of beauty and style.  Don’t. Ever. Forget.  Enjoy and have a great weekend!  xx jenny
