I am loving this new brand for Target, very country chic! Find out my favorite styles and accessories for spring '18.
Another great spring find from Universal Thread. I love this sweater type tee. It's somewhat 70s but not, right?! This embroidered front tie shirt is great as a transitional piece. It's got a sweater-like material but it's not overly thick and of course the short sleeves make it spring friendly. I just love embroidery. And this season I really feel like the style is super down-to-earth and girl-next-door.
My jeans are one of my favorite brands, Flying Monkey. They are of course long on me so I cuff them. You can cuff them under too. My booties are so adorbs and so comfy. I have them in black too.
And let's stop to appreciate my J necklace from Harper & Jewels. They have the cutest personalized jewelry for very reasonably priced and you can use STYLEMYMIND to save 15% off!
This look is just welcoming spring with open arms. If you haven't checked out Target lately, you definitely need to. Their style game is on point these days!
It's been spring for a few weeks in Florida now, but we're praying for ya notherners :)
Shop Looks Here!
I am blessed so much to being doing what I am doing and get to meet so many amazingly wonderful people who have chased their dreams and created something so beautiful. This online boutique grabbed my eye and pulled me in with their rare collections. Please continue reading to find out more about this fabulous online boutique called Aventure Shop.
One of my favorite things in being a blogger is the professional and personal networking I get to do. I love meeting new people from all over the world just by Instagram or email. Amazing. It's wonderful because blogging does not confine or limit you to relationships within your geographic boundary. The internet, of course, is good and bad. But if used properly, it really is a great business and networking tool. Personally, I love finding small online or local boutiques to help promote and engage consumers in their brands. Now days a lot of small retailers have started affiliate programs or we do a lot of bartering which is awesome.
Somehow, I got connected on Instagram with a cute online boutique called Aventure Shop. I loved what she had to offer and she was super sweet and always engaging in my content. I took it upon myself to direct message the boutique and told the owner, Caroline, I was interested in doing a collaboration. We started to email back and forth and I came to find out the Aventure Shop is ran out of New Jersey (hello! Fellow Jersey gal!) and that she graduated from Rutgers like me as well. How small is this world, honestly?
The idea behind the shop is for everyone to have a one-stop-shop to purchase "beautiful and whimsical" pieces from all over the world. It's a happy place, seriously!!! Every visit I make to the site makes me smile. And also makes me want to leave on a jet plane! Aventure Shop is an online store that sells clothing and jewelry! They also have a gorgeous home section as well. As someone who is obsessed with HGTV I am definitely going to take advantage of this! She has breath-taking heart shaped soaps that make you want to slip into a hot bath and bask in the aroma all night long. I love the lavender soap and they are great for gifting! The little bee towel for the kitchen is also way adorable; bundle these two for the perfect b-day gift for your bestie!
I love my "good vibes" tank from their fabulous and fun clothing collection. The material of the tank is great, it almost has a silky feel to it and I love the fit. It feels extremely flattering and I love the bright colors. And let's be honest, good vibes only here people! True to size! I am wearing a medium.
The tassel bracelet is so cute and colorful as well, they go perfectly as a pair. This is from their "Fair Trade Collection" and handmade by women in need in India. It is made from recycled fabrics. OMG! I love the story behind this bracelet. Another great gift piece.
If I could eat these soaps and not be committed I totally would. They are incredible. The "English Lavender Soap" comes with three heart shaped soaps in this adorable packaging. They are made in England, 100% vegetable based and smell unreal. I had them on my desk for a little bit before moving to my bathroom and my whole bedroom filled of lavender. Mmm!!! So good!
The website is very user and phone friendly, easy to navigate and purchase items! Caroline is such a sweetheart and a pleasure to work with. Be sure to check out her site AVENTURE SHOP and get some of these, rare to find gems ASAP!
This outfit is a great transitional look for winter into spring. You know that time where you can either wear shorts OR a tank. Jeans OR long sleeve. Mix and match like I do. Find out more details on this look, the sales and where to shop it in this article!
My fave blogger "Lipstick, Heels and a Baby" posted this Free People shirt quite a few times and I debated it over and over in my head and my online cart whether to order it or not. It was on MAJ sale at Macy's for like $40 plus my 25% off. The kicker came when I got a $25 Macy's giftcard, BUT, all the XS were sold out online so I actually had to go into a mall, mm hmm... I know right?! I found a few but only this one in XS. Luckily I love olive right now so I grabbed it. Here's my favorite things about it:
1. Thumb Holes
2. Light weight
3. Off the Shoulder
4. Extra Slouchy
5. Lazy Day perfection
I got the bralet on Amazon because the Free People one is $40 and I'm not into spening that on lingerie I will barely ever wear. I did get one in white too because they're only $10 and I am a huge fan of the peeping bralet these days.
I am also guilty of over buying denim. Any denim, short, long it doesn't matter. And when you find the perfect fit, you cannot say no. These are also Free People from Macy's but you can shop this whole look on the "Shop my Look" tab on the homepage. So I knew I made a great choice buying these because my BFF said "OMG your butt looks amazing in those shorts. You need to just wear them for the rest of your life." I felt validation.
I threw the hat on with this look last minute and glad I did. I think it gives it a little more daytime, comfy vibe, right? I love these aviator glasses because they fit my face so well. You have to be careful when buying this style, if they are too big they just look ridiculous. You have to find a pair juuuust right. These are from a local Tampa boutique but I linked like pairs on my "SML" page.
Find out how I am wearing Targets new brand, Universal Thread to stand out this Spring!
Ladies! Have you seen the new collections at Target? So adorable! And if you haven't noticed, denim is hot, hot, hot for spring. This little beauty of a top is from the new Target brand, Universal Thread. I fell in love with every single piece of clothing I swear. And the pricing is perfect as well.
This one grabbed my attention because it's faux denim, and a lightweight material which is exactly what we need here in Florida. Secondly, how cute are these sleeves? I am still all about the ruffles right now, just not over-the-top. I styled this top with white cropped jeans because I love denim with white denim. You can also do a darker denim with light. This amazing necklace is from Harper & Jewels. I love their accessories you have to check our their site. You can use STYLEMYMIND for 15% off too! Unfortunately this one is sold out but there are a ton more and even some cute personalized ones. I will let you know if this one is back in stock!
My shoes are Jessica Simpson. I got them a few years ago and am having trouble finding them :( but I linked a really close pair here. I love camel colored shoes, they go with so much. My bag is a cute baby from DSW but linked an adorable look-a-like MK one here! And finally my sunnies are from ILYMIX and you can use jenn20 for 20% off!
So, stock up on the denim this season ladies and wear it how you will.
Color of the year! For me at least. Rose/Mauve was a fan fave for me, check out some of my favorite ways to wear it!
So I know I already posted a blog about my love for the color mauve. And I am still crushing on it for spring especially. Here are some ways I styled up my favorite color this season.
Go with my favorite transitional look of jean shorts and booties. And how stinkin' cute is this cape topper?? It's super thin and a hot commodity this season. It's perfect for those in between days. A similar one is linked above. This tank is a go-to mauve staple in my wardrobe. I put it all together with this fantastic faux stone and suede choker. **All outfits are from Scout & Molly's in Hyde Park, Tampa (#shoplocal). And this Chloe look-a-like bucket bag. I love the circle handles. It really adds something to the look. I linked another look-alike above for people who do not have a Scout & Molly's locally. Affordable fashion, that's what we like!!
I love this double wrap-suede-choker too. It adds some western style to the look don't you think? Linking a look-alike here!
I love this mauve puffer jacket. OMG! I saw it and needed to have it, but then was like Oh wait, I live in Florida so I'll just use it as a prop haha! But one is linked here .
If you are local to a boutique, pop in and check out this adorable tie-dye dress that was just released for spring. A must-have for this season. You can't really tell in the picture but there is hints of mauve in this beauty. I linked a look-alike above!
Here are the mauve denims I recently wrote about with another look. I love this mint ruffled top. This whole look just screams pastels for spring please! We are totally ready for flowers and picnics. Or just a day out shopping in Hyde Park. If you're there swing by to grab this whole look and make sure you told them Jenn sent ya! Oh here is the fedora. I am really obsessed with beach fedoras, they are a staple in my wardrobe.
This dress was 3 sizes too large for me, find out how I made it work without sewing!
Hey beauties! We are approaching the warmer months here in Florida but definitely still a bit chilly up there in the northeast huh?! So this one's for you!! This is a great transitional look from winter to spring! I am wearing the heck out of these boots this season into the next!
So anyway, this year the plans and focus for my blog are going to be promoting and educating fashion lovers on how to style their wardrobe and shop smart! I do not spend a lot of money on clothing, unless it's a staple or classic piece. I buy a lot yes, but, I do not buy full price, ever! Unless something is an absolute must-have I know I cannot get elsewhere. I want to help you think out of the box when you look at your wardrobe. I want you to be bold in your styling and not afraid to wear your personality on your sleeve, literally. Accessories are always your best friend. They can make an outfit.
That being said, let's peek at my vintage look here. This was a gorgeous dress given to me by Rebecca of Vintage Modage. It is a size or so too large for me but I really really love it. I eventually want to get it taken in but in the meantime, I thought cinching the waist with a skinny black belt and pairing it with some great accessories would really make this dress perfection. (Mostly everything in this look is linked- just click on the hyperlinks!)
I styled this taupe, satin dress with a floppy wool hat, an adorable suede bucket bag from Scout & Molly's in South Tampa and over-the-knee boots!
I topped it all off with some killer Quay Sunglasses from Scout & Molly's as well. If you're not in Tampa you can go right to the Quay site to grab them!
For a Pop! of color I threw on "Creeper" by Colour Pop. It's a gloss that goes on liquid but dries matte and lasts all day and the best part is it's ONLY $6! Linked above.
The idea behind this blog is to link you to affordable accessories and help you to understand that styling is what makes the outfit! I love this black suede bucket bag too. It just really pulls the whole outfit together.
