Styled Person Of Interest: Jessie J♥

Jessie is definitely one of my favorite current pop singers. Not only is she incredibly stunning, but her talent is beyond measure. I remember when I first heard her years ago on Youtube and I've been hooked ever since. One of my favorite things about her is her incredible and unique style. In today's post I'm going to show you some of my favorite looks that Jessie has rocked over the years. Hopefully this will give you all a little fashion inspiration and always make sure and leave me a comment letting me know your thoughts on her style my beautiful freaks!


This dress she rocked at the Grammy Award's is statement, classy, and edgy at the same time. I love how confident she is in everything she wears, no matter how out there or crazy it may be.


Jessie looks absolutely stunning in this casual and edgy outfit. I believe those are studded Jeffery Campbell Lita's she's rocking and even if they aren't, they definitely pull the outfit together quite nicely.


One thing I love about her style is the fact that you'll see one pop of color in most of her outfits. Whether she's wearing all black like shown above or crazy prints, she always finds a way to incorporate a bright shade somewhere.


Jessie loves to rock jumpsuits. And for good reason. Not only are they comfortable and make you feel more confident in my opinion, when you have a body like hers, they look absolutely stunning. (By the way, there's that pop of color in the leather blue jacket!)


Who else could pull off such a unique outfit? Here Jessie mixes not only two different textures, but two totally opposite styles. With her thigh high lace booties and lovely tribal like orange dress, I sit here applauding her for trying something different.


This is such a lovely casual chic look that I feel like most people could pull off. Here she wears a sheer black button up, pink capris, gold heels, and adds a print with this zebra printed bag. A great outfit for spring and summer.


Okay so call me crazy but I absolutely love the fact that Jessie rocked this look for many reasons. Firstly here she has a boot on from an injury and still looks incredible. Secondly she matched her purple hair with her purple outfit which I consider a major win. And thirdly she has confidence that kills. Can you say winning.

I've Been Loving: Chunky Scarves♥

Let me start by saying that this winter has been one of the coldest I've ever experienced. Hats, thick gloves, and layers upon layers have been my best friend. I've noticed my collection of chunky scarves have been growing and even though I used to hate them, they have been great to wear throughout the colder season. Girl, they will change your life. In this post I'm going to show you some of my current favorite scarves and where you can buy them. Enjoy lovelies!

Frayed Plaid Scarf, $10.80, Forever21.

I was going to show you a picture of this piece on its own but found this lovely picture of an outfit of the day by Alyssa of runwaychef rocking this awesome scarf {Blog link below if you'd like to check her out!}. It's definitely been another staple scarf in my collection this winter and is a lovely statement piece to have in one's closet. Ladies, Forever21 has it going on in the scarf department. Just trust me on this one.

Tartan Plaid Frayed Scarf, $10.80, Forever21.

This has been such a great staple scarf. To me it's the perfect winter scarf for many reasons, it's not only lightweight and looks great on, but it definitely keeps you very warm as well. 

Fair Isle Stripe Scarf, $64.99, J Crew.

This scarf is such a fun one to have. It's pattern is fun and playful and is very vintage looking to me. I also love the color combination and feel like this would look good with a simple top and jacket, jeans, and boots for a cute outfit to go out and about in. It could be worn casual or dressy and is very versatile.

Katinka Scarf, $218, Anthropologie.

Although this scarf is a little on the pricey side, I had to put it here simply because I love it so much. The color, the pattern, how feminine and boho chic it is, you can't go wrong with this piece. Unless it breaks your bank in which case you can most definitely go wrong *Cough cough me*. 

Panda Print Infinity Scarf, $14.99, Etsy.

Judge me if you will, and I don't blame you, but I am so in love with this scarf. Is my panda obsession a bit much? Probably. Do I care in the slightest? Nope. To be honest I have one of these in tan with black pandas that I bought on my last trip to California and I'm so in love with it. It's light weight and is super cute! ^_-

My Fashion Favorites {November 2014}♥

Well it's that time of the month again, and no, not that time of the month. It's the time where I show you what things in my closet I've been loving the most. I haven't done one of these in quite a while I realized, so I thought today was a good day to start this series back up. Enjoy!


The first thing that I've been loving is this grey and purple jacket from Kohls. It's been extremely cold where I live and this keeps me nice and cozy on days when I'm going a bit more casual.


The second thing I've been loving is this cute little panda hat I bought a couple years back {Wish I remember where it's from, sorry y'all), and it has been something I've worn ever since. Call me childish, but if you know me well enough, you know that I just love anything panda related. And how cute is this?!


Another thing I've been loving are these black riding boots from Macy's. They go with just about anything and are good in the snow which is important because it's been snowing like crazy here! {Anyone else excited for Christmas?}


Although this is quite a recent purchase, I've really been wearing this plaid fringe scarf by Banana Republic a lot. It's very thick so is perfect for the chilly weather and I love the pattern!


Another thing I've been wearing a lot are these beige suade fringe booties from Target. I actually think this is the only pair from Target that I own, and I just love them! They go with a lot and are perfect to pair with a casual top, cute scarf, and leggings.


The last thing that I've been loving for the month of November is this lovely mint green necklace from Maurices. It's a really unique shape and design which I think is why I was so drawn to it, as well as the fact that mint green is one of my favorite colors.

My Shoe Collection (Part 3)♥

Quick Update: Hey everyone! It sure has been a while, hasn't it! I miss you guys. Unfortunately there has been a lot of things in my personal life that have pulled me back from blogging a bit. As I sit here I'm forcing myself to write this post. Which is weird for me since blogging is one of my favorite things in the world and I've always been excited to create for you all. But these past couple weeks have been tough so I guess I needed a bit of a break. No worries though, I'm getting through it and I want to keep these posts up for you guys through thick and thin. Thank you for your never ending support and love, I could never ask for better readers than you guys.

As I was going through my closet I realized how many shoes I've bought since I did my last shoe collection post (I'll link part one and two below). Therefor, a part three is definitely in order! Hope you all enjoy and as always make sure and let me know which are your favorites.



This first pair I bought over the summer. They were so much fun to wear with shorts or cuffed skinny jeans. I've always loved the boat shoe look because it's both classy and feminine, with a hint of preppy.




Deep down I knew these shoes were not necessary in my closet whatsoever. Unfortunately I ended up getting them anyways and they've just been sitting around because, you guess it, I haven't worn them once. I mean what in the world do you wear these with? A ballgown? 


Although I have many Converse, this is my only pair of high tops. Because I'm short I don't wear them a lot because they seem to make me look even shorter...if that's even possible. But none the less I do love the deep rich red color and think these are super cute and fun to wear. 


These taupe/grey wedges were so much fun to rock over the summer. They go with just about anything and are so comfortable. I never realized how much I love this color as well, it's a lovely soft neutral that just about anyone could rock.


I am somewhat obsessed with these shoes. They have been my go to for fall and look lovely with skinny jeans, an oversized sweater, and scarf. I feel like these are a great staple shoe that every girl should own for the chillier seasons ahead. 


When these shoes came to my work, I about passed out. This may sound strange but for years now I have wanted a pair of Tiffany Blue Converse. The color always makes me happy for some reason, it's so bright and cheery. Definitely a fun pop of color. 



These shoes are definitely some of my favorites in my collection (Thank you camera for taking such a crappy picture). Although they are fairy uncomfortable, these baby's are so freaking sexy to me. They are one of the highest I own, and wearing them for over, oh I don't know, five minutes? Will kill your feet to no end. But hey, at least you'll look amazing, right? 



This is another pair of shoes I was so incredibly excited about owning, a pair of cherry red Doc Martins. These shoes scream grunge and are a perfect pop of color to any casual outfit and give off that 90's Nirvana vibe.

FELL ON BLACK DAYS.


Once and a while I like to let out my inner grunge with a somewhat unflattering outfit that makes me feel all warm and cozy. Perfect for fall, no? In this outfit I am wearing this hat from Amazon, little black dress from Aeropostale, oversized plaid button up from Hollister, and Dr. Martins.

Stay Beautiful
