spain does it again

collage vintage

No one wants to start thinking about fall – certainly not me!  But in true jenny, type A form – I have started mentally preparing my autumn wardrobe and analyzing what my ‘uniform’ will entail through the cooler months.  Of course I find a picture of Sara from Collage Vintage and just like that – I’m inspired.  If you haven’t checked out her blog – I urge you to do so.  The girl has got serious style.  I’m not fluent in Spanish (blog is written in her native language) but the pictures are worth a thousand words.  This particular look is transitional, taking pieces that you’re not ready to retire from summer and adding a second layer to keep you warm in the fall.  Switch out the sandals for booties and the tee for a cozy sweater and voila! – you’ve got your winter version.  Shop it here.

the skinny on the skinny

we wore what

Fashion is revolutionary and repeats/reinvents itself decade after decade. Let’s take the slim/skinny pant for instance. Marilyn Monroe was rocking them in the 50’s, the Beatles in the 60’s, the punk phenomenon in the late 70’s was all over it, the 80’s owned this style in acid wash and please tell me you remember farlow’s in the 90’s? Now we have this ever-so-popular (and timeless) silhouette in every color, texture, print, pattern and fabric imaginable. So what’s next? Enter the skinny slit pant. The same popular fit with just an ever so slight slit detail on the leg (front, side or back), adding some freshness and edge to our most adorned bottom. I’m a fan – and can’t wait to get my hands on a pair. I’m dying for Danielle’s (above) from J.Brand, but they’re currently sold out. Don’t fret! I found a few other options – some even on sale! xx jenny

Good Morning everyone!  Hope you had a nice weekend.  Luckily it cleared up on the east and the sun finally came out (well at least on Saturday).  Let’s kick off this week with some good ole’ warm weather fashion deliciousness and pray that this terrible weather is fleeting and will open up to an incredibly beautiful summer.  I stumbled on this amazingly relaxed look which takes you from the beach to the street all season long.  Easy to throw on after a day of basking in the sunlight to head right into dinner and drinks looking perfectly put together with no fuss added.  Shop the look here!

perfect popover…

Screen Shot 2013-05-13 at 10.42.53 AM

It is unlikely that I will buy this jcrew collection popover because there is about a 4-6 week window where the weather allows for it (think early fall and spring) and I simply cannot rationalize spending the $400 for something with such little wearability.  It will either be too cold or too hot and this piece is just too pretty to spend the majority of its lifespan tucked away in my closet!  And let’s be real, it is certainly pricey for a top.  BUT….I am fawning over it – it’s my version of design perfection.  Super stylish, comfortable, can be worn with anything and provides a boho and ethnic sensibility (which lends itself to my personal style).   Let’s play dress up anyway – sometimes we don’t need to spend a lot of money to take something beautiful, be inspired by it and create our own iteration.  I know that’s my plan!  xx #yoursoulstyle
