Paisley in Peru | FASHION + TRAVEL

 

 

This is one of the comfiest outfits ever, which was perfect for our day of rehearsals in Peru. Paisley is such a popular print right now, so I included some similar options below, but this particular dress is on sale!!! $57 (originally $100). It always makes me reaaaally excited when I have good deals to share! 😁

Speaking of rehearsals, our student conference is coming up next week, so our band is meeting up tonight to kick this thing into high gear! Super looking forward to conference! 

Get the look...

Dress: Style London | Shoes: Adidas (similar here and here) | Lips: NYX

Styling Tips for the Stripe-Struck

This post is action-packed with styling tips and I'm SO excited to share! P.S. Where did the weekend go??!

TRANSITIONING FROM WINTER TO SPRING

With the weather changing, it's hard to know how to shift your wardrobe! For us Dallas girls, Texas tends to be pretty temperamental before finally landing in a new season...and in the meantime, we have "nothing to wear." :) This dress is a great example of a versatile piece -- casual or dressy -- Winter or Spring. Paired with the suede, it nods to Winter, while transitioning to Spring...but can't you picture it thrown over a swimsuit on the beach, with flips in one hand and sno cone in the other? (Can you tell I'm vacation dreaming?! :)

TIP! For in between seasons: choose a Spring piece and build Winter accessories around it!*

Accessories I could've worn with this look: Velvet bag (here), chunky cuff (here or here or here), felt hat (here), light blue booties (here), fringe booties (here), rust booties (here)

STYLING MIDI DRESSES

Midi-dresses are everywhere and I've honestly been hesitant to jump on the bandwagon. If it's not paired with the right shoe, it can look a bit stumpy...but this Jessica Simpson bootie (here) combined with the diagonal patterned dress (here) compliment the midi length. Here's a few other booties that would've worked too!

TIP! For midi length clothing, add a chunky heel and/or an elongating pattern for extra height!*

The necklace I'm wearing is ROCKSBOX! They've offered my friends a month's subscription of designer jewelry for free! I didn't think I'd like the idea of jewelry "on loan," but here we are...I love it. Use my code and give it a try for yourself! JESSICASHEPPARDXOXO at rocksbox.com.

The Jessica Simpson booties I mentioned are on sale -- oh, and so is the dress...$34! Dress (here), Booties (here) (similar)

What are your favorite transitional pieces? Do you have any styling tips to add? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Leave me a comment below!

030216 x Denim Rainbows

This Dallas weather has a way of understanding, don't you think? 72° says, "Something exciting is about to happen." It also says, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING INSIDE? Carry your desk and office chair into the parking lot, because seriously, SPRINGTIME FOR EVERYONE." March clearly has some strong opinions. 😁

Click above to shop my outfit! Handbag, sunglasses and shoes on sale (eeeeks). P.S. I mixed these two MAC lip colors: PINK NOUVEAU around the edges + SAINT GERMAIN in the center for an ombre look!

Wrote in my journal at the beginning of the year, "2016: the year of the swan." Since then, I've been on the hunt for the perfect special swan piece. Found THE ONE in Taipei - my Happy Valentine's Day to me gift! :)

Good After Nine: I'm so obsessed with ALL of their jewelry pieces. Elegant, pretty and whimsical. Such a hard choice, but I'm thrilled I found them online...now I can start my wishlist. :)

Dress up or dress down with this comfy button-up. Love the pajama look to it! On sale 50% off ($26). I paired it with these flares...they're my absolute fave right now. The dark wash is perfect, the fit is perfect, and the high-waist + no button situation = 😍
