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…

that 70’s girl

wide leg pantsOh. My. God.  I’ve been on a wild goose chase to find pants exactly like these in the above photo.  I have a gem of an old pair that I scooped up from Forever 21 a couple years back, but need 1 – 2 more.  I absolutely love for a multitude of reasons: the high waist, the wide leg, the tweed texture = pure heaven.  Plus – I die for styling details that remind me of the 70’s fashion era and a high waist screams Studio 54!  Flattering on most body types, this is a piece that will turn your frown upside down on those pesky mornings where you and a tight fit are enemies (don’t you love those days?  we all have them).  The fitted tee and cropped jacket give the total look a sexy, yet relaxed feel.  Stay away from overly baggy tops that will hide the top of the pant which should hit you at the smallest area.  The high waist creates length which will off set the width of the leg keeping the illusion of a longer and leaner silhouette.  Style tip:  Don’t be afraid to size up.  The pant fit should be loose on the leg and and the inseam should drop and not hug your body.  Shop similar here.  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…

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…
