Star style: Jennifer Lopez

Layering is a great way to start wearing your Fall clothing but still allow yourself to peel away the heavier items during the warmer temperatures of the day. Jennifer Lopez’s outfit is a perfect mixture of the transitional state. Her faux-layered sweater dress with a peek of a button-down is perfectly paired with these black lace-up heels. Adding a statement Hermès cuff bracelet gives the perfect amount of arm candy and a (not pictured) Valentino purse completes the classic black, white, and grey color palette.

Inspired by J.Lo? Pair this shirt dress with this elongated sweater. Give your waist some definition with this beauty of a belt. Adore your feet with these cutout heels and give your wrist a little action with this black and gold cuff. Throw on this crossbody and you’re all set for #normcore!

Outfit styling with PicStick // Style Me Wednesday #16

link-up, outfits, sponsored comment

I should take the award for best alarm snoozer. Most mornings, I am usually running out of the house to make it to work on time. That also means that I usually have no brain capacity (or time) for trying to figure out what outfit I should wear, let alone how to style it. So, often, I pick out what I want to wear for the week during the weekend. I’ve recently switched up my routine of taking out clothes and figuring out what pairs together and actually gone to a more visual approach. I have been on a mission to have a highly curated (but remaining versatile) closet so I have been taking photos of items I own and printing them out. Using these photographs I am able to create a collage of an outfit and it makes it so much easier to simply pull these items together in the morning and still look put together. Well, PicStick, must haven read my mind because they asked if I’d be interested in trying out their photo magnets. Of course, I had a why-didn’t-I-think-of-that-before moment when I realized how much easier it would be to adhere these photo magnets to my inspiration board (#gamechanger, I tell you!). I received a sheet of photo magnets consisting of 9 individual magnets and they’re the perfect size (roughly 2″ x 2.5″). Of course, I could also think of other things I might print on these cute photo magnets: catalog inspiration photos, my family, etc. I might need to purcahse a new board soon with all the things I could think of printing! What would you print on these magnets?

You know when you’ve put together your outfit and are wondering what jewelry to pair with it? Sometimes, it’s the simplest piece that can transition and make the feel of an outfit. Lately, I’ve been gravitating more towards jewelry that some might consider simple. But that’s hardly the case with the amount of power a single piece of jewelry can evoke when matched with an outfit. This gold knotted cuff from Armed & Readi is just that: a minimalist design but the addition of it brings a lot of chic and “oomph”. What’s your go-to jewelry picks these days?

Aside from gingham prints being a season staple, chambray shirts are also in heavy rotation in my closet. A thicker fabric keeps me warmer and the darker color is perfection for Autumn. Last week, I took a short getaway to the East Coast and this outfit was the perfect sightseeing (and eating) ensemble. For me, comfort is always key for vacation as I’m usually on foot to take in all the sights and sounds. I’m often too lazy to iron so this chambray shirt paired with these jeans made sense. Add on some comfortable shoes and I’ll all set for the day.
