Hello and happy week! Leather skirts are trending for fall, so scooping one up that takes you from work to play will prove to be a worthy investment. I’m an advocate of a “one wardrobe” approach to fashion, meaning your clothing can crossover and function in different areas of your life. Many of us divide our closet into “workwear” and “weekend clothes” but that is expensive, inefficient and some of us just don’t have that much closet space! Take a new approach when shopping and think about how you can wear your items in multiple ways. The slightest adjustment in your styling could change your look from office chic to date night hotness! And your wallet will thank you too! Here’s an example on how to do it with one of the seasons hottest pieces. xx jenny

Hello friends! I hope you had an awesome long july 4th weekend and were able to relax while spending time with friends, family, lovers and babes – bbq’s, fireworks, beach – what’s better than that? You’ll have to forgive me for falling off the earth last week, but work got cray and I was feeling overwhelmed. I’ve had a rejuvenating few days off and am back, ready to carry-on! I needed a minute to step away in order come back stronger and clearer with some fresh perspective and creativity. Make sure to pause and take a breath when necessary – it’s nourishing for the mind, body and soul!
Okay – so let’s get to it! Since fall fashion is hitting stores – I’m sure you’ve noticed that summer product is majorly on sale (e-mails flooding your inbox yet??). My advice is to stock up on the classics bypassing the uber trends you’ve had your eye on from the beginning of the season. Although super pretty and compelling with the new 50% off price tag, these will likely be yesterday’s news by next summer. By then you’ll be over it and want the new and current trend for spring/summer ’14. Trust me – I’ve exhausted this method and hopefully learned my lesson. Too many unworn items with tags still on in the donation pile – has this ever happened to you? I’ve been virtual shopping on my favorite site shopbop and found a few things I’ve dumped into my cart that I’ll certainly wear for years to come. If you need any advice on pulling the trigger on something you’ve been coveting – reach out and I’ll be glad to help! Happy sale’ing! xx jenny

I’m a little late to the party when it comes to this Phillip Lim, “I Love Nueva York” tee since it was all over the street during Fall NYFW. However in lieu of the upcoming DOMA and Prop 8 ruling by the Supreme Court this week – I’m feeling extra thankful and lucky to be living in a state where my marriage is already recognized. I am so proud to be a New Yorker and am hoping that the rights that I’ve come to know are extended to all and then some.
Sending tons of love, luck and support to all standing on the front line in Washington!
