OOTD {4.26.14}








It's official...I've replaced all of my winter wardrobe with my spring/summer clothes and I couldn't be happier! It feels so good to be wearing shorts and a tee instead of jeans and a jacket.  The weather today was perfect - extra sunny and just the right temperature. I took advantage of this and wore my favorite high waisted shorts! My favorite part about them, besides their fit and style, is the color! I'm such a fun of statement pieces of clothing and these are just that! I paired it with a simple gray tee to keep the attention on the shorts! And making their first appearance for the spring/summer are my Joan and David sandals (The gems on the top are just the perfect amount of sparkle for the outfit)! I kept my accessories to a minimal and just wore a blue bracelet to add a bit of contrast.

Happy Weekend!

Happy (long) weekend everyone..who's excited for Easter!? I was in much need of this mini break and I'm taking full advantage of it (by sleeping in of course). Even though the weather wasn't agreeing with my wardrobe, spring is still on my mind. Here are a few links to help keep spring on your mind too! 

- My search for the perfect might finally be over! This Nars lipgloss is next of my must have beauty products! 

- I wear sandals basically every day during the summer, so when I heard about Anthropologie's shoe sale I couldn't miss it. These are just calling my name! 

- Simply put, you could say I'm an ice tea junkie. I order it wherever I go. I'm so excited to try out this recipe at home! 

- These tees from Sincerely Jules are just too cute!  

- I'm so obsessed with the outfit Jessica Alba wore! The crop top is just too great!

- If you haven't seen Carly and Mackenzie's feature on teen vogue yet, I would check it out! I'm totally fan girling over here

Graphic Tees Done Right

graphic tees done right


Lately, Ive been really into wearing tees, whether it be a graphic or just plain one. I love how they look with jeans and even a structured skirt. They're such an easy way to glam up a super casual outfit - add some cute sandals and a great pair of sunnier and your outfit is instantly 10x chicer. I picked out some of my favorite graphic tees that I think are perfect for the upcoming warm weather from some super cute shops!  Graphic tees aren't just for concerts and hipsters..the ones I picked out would fit perfectly in a prepster's closet too!

If you remember from one of my earlier posts I wore my "Oui a L'amour" shirt from Sincerely Jules. She recently announced her new line and I fell in love with it! The pineapple tee and "Ciao" tee are two of my faves.

{Casual Style}










With warmer weather finally being a part of my everyday, I've been opting for lighter tops and brighter colors. Its not quite warm enough for me to wear shorts and a tank but I'm happy just to be able to wear sandals again. The temperature was up in the 70's so I need it was time to try out a new top I got a Madewell. It's super soft, comfy, and easy to wear (I can picture myself wearing it as a beach cover up too!). Since it's a bit sheer, I paired it with a blush bralette (which I recently found out are extremely comfortable, and cute!). To keep things simple, I worn jeans and stripy leather sandals. I love this outfit for a laid back weekend  or a warm Friday night date!

What's your go-to casual outfit?

OOTD {4.10.14}




If you're like me, then you love when there's a opportunity to get dressed up and look a bit fancy. Yesterday was one of those days and I took full advantage of it. I have to admit, it took quite a while to find a dress that fit me, was flattering, and also reasonably priced. I knew I wanted to stand out from what I knew the girls around me where wearing so I asked myself..."What's the best place to find a cute and modern looking dress?" I knew Zara was the best place to look for something like this and I was so happy that I found the perfect dress!

This white dress was so simple, yet the detail at the top added the right amount of glamour to the look. It also fit me perfectly; fitting but not too tight. The 3/4 length sleeves were so me and I just loved everything about the dress. I can't wait to wear it again!

I decided not to wear any accessories because the embellishment at the top was enough. I found a gorgeous pair of sandals at Anthropologie that I thought went perfectly with the dress. The shimmer mathched with that of the jewels of the dress, but everything else about the sandal was so minimalistic. (Plus, they're so comfy!) 

What do you think of my outfit? {I would love to read your comments} xo-jessica

Madewell: A Prespter's "go-to" Store

I was introduced to the Madewell brand just a few years ago and I immediately fell in love with it! It's uniqueness sets it apart from most other brands and there is literally something for all types of people with completely different senses of style.

Whether you lean more towards simple outfits or cool and modern ensembles, Madwell is the place for you. Their jeans are of such a great quality that they will become your most worn, loved, and cherished piece of clothing. Pair them with one of their simple tee's and you have an outfit perfect for the weekend.

Madwell's quality and design carries through to the rest of their collections. Their tops have such unique design and structure that you can't find anywhere else so that a casual outfit can be dressed up. My favorite pieces are usually their dresses ( I love the one I used for one of my school's events!) because they fit right in with my personal style: simple, elegant, and fun!

Each Madewell store embodies the brand's personal aesthetic with its decor, layout, and gorgeous displays (totally instagram worthy). The quality of each piece is of a high standard and worth the price! So..if you haven't already fallen in love with the brand then I suggest you maybe a stop their on your next shopping trip!

Here are some of my favorite pieces of their current collection...

 

I can definitely see a trend here...white and leather - just perfect for spring/summer!

Have you shopped at Madewell? Do you love the brand? xo - jessica

Sunnies: Black vs. Tortoise

Black vs tortoise
The first thing on my wish list right now is a pair of quality sunglasses that I can use on a daily basis. Investing in a pair of sunglasses is an easy way to add a touch of glamour to any outfit, no matter what season (but especially summer!). So, that's exactly what I'm going to do this spring! My indecisiveness is showing by my hesitancy to choose a pair. As of right now, the biggest thing I'm debating is the color. Personally, I prefer bigger lenses (like the cat eyes above!) but I can't decide if I want black or tortoise.
Black is the epitome of a classic style and everyone knows that you can't go wrong with it. Black sunnies are simple, yet sexy enough, to enhance any one's style. But, tortoise has recently been the color of every possible accessory..from clutches, to necklaces, to mugs, and even silverware! In my opinion, it's a staple of every "prepsters" wardrobe.
You can't go wrong with either color, but as of now, I'm leaning towards the tortoise pair in the top right!

Which pair is your favorite? Would you go with the black or the tortoise? (Comment below!) - xo jessica
