the classics

the classicsAnd to piggy back on last weeks post which offered affordable trendy items to refresh your spring/summer 2014 wardrobe, investing in some seasonal classics is essential too.  These are the pieces to spend a little more money on since their shelf life is endless. They are the trends that move through a revolving door, reappearing year after year.  Every wardrobe needs a strong foundation, and these key basics will provide a sturdy baseline.  I’ve rounded up my list of ‘must-haves’ which I can assure you will go the distance.  Happy Monday!

Stay tuned for some exciting changes coming your way this Friday, which I cannot wait to share!  Your Soul Style is growing up!  Stay very, very VERY tuned!

trench coat A forever fashion staple, trench coats have been around for eternity.  Which is why it’s a good idea to keep one on rotation in your closet since season after season, the classic silhouette proves to stand the test of time.  Whether your look is boho, edgy, polished, etc., a trench works well with any particular style and keeps you just the right amount of warm on cooler spring days.  The interweb is bursting with newness from low to high price points so now is the time to get on it!  Here’s an edit of some current faves for your shopping pleasure.  Happiest, happy weekend!  See you on the flip side.  xx jenny

sexy sweats

sexy sweats 2I put this photo on instagram over the weekend and after a friend commented that she “must own these pants”, along with another chiming in, “agreed”, I decided to put together a post.  Sweatpants are now a staple in my wardrobe since traditional silhouettes have evolved to slimmer and more fashion-forward fits.  While I understand that weekend days are a time to kick back, there is no reason why you can’t be comfortable and still look good!  The ones I’m wearing are H&M from last season with limited sizes left, but here’s a few current styles that will surely do the trick.

gray days

e42a18a6d5ffcf22835c78e92b354293Hello and happy Monday!  Lately comfortable fashion choices have been ruling the roost for me, demonstrated via my instagram feed here and here.  Working from home doesn’t always warrant getting dressed up, but I still want to feel pulled together!  The above look is too easy not to replicate, swapping out the booties for flats when necessary while still maintaining an effortless, relaxed and totally cool look.  And here’s the real kicker – grey is versatile so these pieces can be worn with a myriad of items already hanging in your closet.  Shop similar here…
