♥ fall wishlist ♥

This weekend marks the unofficial end of summer which means fall is here ladies!  My wishlist has been brewing and I wanted to share because it includes a few key pieces to stock up on.  Although I’ll likely not purchase everything, hence the word, “wish”,  a version of each will certainly make it into the rotation!  What’s on your list?  Maybe you even have some of these items hanging in your closet already?  Be sure to join me here to check out how I style these throughout the season!  And show me how you do too by tagging me on instagram @yoursoulstyle, also using the hashtag #yoursoulstyle.  Let’s inspire each other!

Next week I’ll show you how to mix and match these key pieces to get a plethora of outfit options!  Stay tuned!  Have a great long weekend!  xx jenny

fashion weeks a’coming

3.1 phillip limWe’re just upon fall yet about to see the spring/summer 2014 collections in fashion week which kicks off again next Thursday here in NYC.  It feels like yesterday when just a newbie at blogging, was covering my fav’s from the 2013 shows.  I’ve worked in the industry for a long time and have learned to toggle between seasons – usually strategizing on the current assortment while simultaneously planning for what’s next.  Before our mind fast-forwards toward spring/summer 2014 – let’s enjoy what we can wear now be it military, grunge, leather, an oversized coat, camouflage or the color red!  Here’s a few featured looks (and trends) from earlier this year to get you inspired!  xx jenny

playing with the big boys

j.crew september 2013Hello and happy week!  I hope it was a good one.  As excited as I was to flip through the September issues of Vogue, Bazaar and Elle, I was equally, if not more stoked to check out J.Crew’s September style guide which arrived on Wednesday.  The brand has been on the up climb for some time and despite the regular one or two small misses, every page this month is full of inspiration proving once again they are worthy enough to play with the big boys!  Jenna Lyons, the company’s President and Creative Director introduces four key trends (color, camo, sport and leather) which is where the book jumps off.  In typical J.Crew (and Jenna) fashion, unexpected pieces come together creating hip, wearable ensembles.  After flipping through from cover to cover, not only did I ear mark nearly every page for styling inspiration – but seconds later went ahead and ordered these!  J.Crew is offering 25% off in store and online through August 26th on purchases over $150 with the code FALLSTYLE.  Shipping is free on these orders too.  Woo woo!  A few looks I’m swooning over…

Have a great weekend!  xx jenny

transition mode

josefinCould there possibly be a better summer into fall transition ensemble than this?  I sometimes find myself confused about what to wear when the season comes to a close, but yet it’s too early for sweaters.  When you’re holding on to the last bit of warmth before the brisk weather settles in – what’s a gal to do?  This outfit has got me inspired.  The white tee keeps things light for those seventy degree days and the moto jacket is an ideal piece to layer on in the morning and post-sunset.  Although the silhouette of the pant demonstrates a summery feel, adding the leather and going with the trending color red says you’re serious about fall!  Shop similar here…
