Happy Cyber Monday!!!

I hope everyone had a fun time with their family and friends this holiday and that your bellies were equally jazzed by the spread of food. I know mine was!

Can you say stretchy pants?

Of course, after the Thanksgiving splurge, we all anticipate the insanity of shopping on Black Friday as well. Did you partake? Here is my blog from Friday to access links to shop that are still relevant.

To be honest, I typically don’t have the time to stand outside a storefront at 6am to take advantage of all the crazy shopping incentives. BUT I do love a little online shopping that I can do in the comforts of home in my dream pants on CYBER MONDAY–which is the perfect time to secure amazing steals for holiday gifts for your loved ones or even yourself!

So if you have free time during your lunch break at work or if you’re just hanging out at the house, take some time to start browsing your favorite websites to see what deals they might have on the hottest gifts. The perfect way to maximize your shopping dollars and not waste your time is to think BIG. The bigger the store, the bigger the deal. So focus on establishments like Amazon, Target, Best Buy, and many many more.

Perhaps you are in need of a…

New winter coat? Try North Face

New TV or computer? Try Best Buy

New home decor? Try Nordstrom

New pair of shoes? Try Nike

New workout clothes? Try Under Armour

New Kitchen Aid? Try Target

New makeup? Try Ulta

Here are some other fun gadgets and gizmos I adore….

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope everyone is ready for some serious eating and family time this Thanksgiving holiday!

This is the perfect time to find outfit pieces that you would normally not buy for yourself or even gifts for someone special for Christmas at reasonable prices.

There are tons of sales going on from Nordstrom, J.Crew, Lululemon, Amazon, and many more. Spend this shopping day splurging on a nice pair of boots you’ve been eyeing or a new winter coat as well as a fabulous new makeup palette or accessories.

5 Ways to Style a Scarf

Happy Monday Fashionistas!

Hope you’ve been enjoying these cooler nights. Lord knows I have in my mid-life hormonal craziness!

Let’s face it–we’re in that weird weather transition where our days begin in the low 50’s and end in the upper 80’s. So how can we effectively look cute without losing our style sanity?

Let’s focus on 5 ways to style a scarf that can simplify your dressing routine and ultimately make you feel pulled together on these seemingly schizo days.

Here are five different outfits that utilize several types of scarf material, the latest trends, and also links to learn how to tie a scarf itself.

Outfit #1)

[show_ms_widget id=”35957667″ image_id=”41808871″ width=”293″ height=”512″]

One of my favorite looks includes a ‘faux infinity scarf.’ This is a great day to night outfit, especially topped with the leather jacket. It’s a smaller version of a blanket scarf but super elegant yet light enough to wear with a short sleeve shirt {check out this additional post to Style a Basic Tee for more inspiration}.

Outfit #2)

[show_ms_widget id=”35957671″ image_id=”41808875″ width=”322″ height=”502″]

Styling a basic shift or t-shirt dress paired with some riding boots and then accessorize with a wool or knitted type scarf is a “go-to” outfit concept for me. Try the figure eight or loop-n-through concept or simply let the scarf hang around the neck. Keep in mind, this style of scarf often looks best in the fall/winter months because of the bulk of the material, but it is a great staple scarf to have on hand regardless!

Outfit #3)

[show_ms_widget id=”35957564″ image_id=”41808759″ width=”305″ height=”512″]

Plaid shirts are still popular this season coupled with your favorite tall riding boots and jeans. Add a knitted infinity scarf to add more warmth as well as a simple pop of color/contrast. I will be showcasing this outfit myself over the holidays myself. Check out last weeks blog post for more Simple Holiday Outfits like this.

Outfit #4)

[show_ms_widget id=”35957675″ image_id=”41808876″ width=”373″ height=”511″]

This is the perfect professional ensemble if you add a blazer to this concept! Traditional trousers and a plain t-shirt paired with a fun loafer is adorbs. Get crazy and add the latest trend –the neck tie scarf. This dainty add-on can be tied in many ways as showcased in Audrey A La Mode’s blog.

Outfit #5)

[show_ms_widget id=”35957571″ image_id=”41808767″ width=”357″ height=”508″]

Last but not least, get inspiration with a fun skirt and over-the-knee riding boot. Maybe opt for a classic denim skirt or button front style, that is also trending, with a simple double wrap scarf to add some color and pattern. This is the most common type of scarf you might see in stores and something that can be worn all year around depending on the weight and pattern you choose.

So don’t delay–get your day on with the perfect accessory–The SCARF!

3 Simple Holiday Outfits

 

1

It’s getting close to Turkey Day?

How are you getting your gobble on?

I seriously cannot believe it’s almost Thanksgiving… and then Christmas…WHAT?! Of course, these upcoming holidays beg the question, “What in the heck do I wear since it really isn’t even sweater-weather? Can you say 80 degrees in November?”

So today I’ve picked out three simple and fuss free outfit concepts as we transition from Fall to Winter to boost your style and confidence.

Outfit #1

[show_ms_widget id=”35956412″ image_id=”41807363″ width=”615″ height=”800″]

[show_lookbook_widget id=”317844″]

This is a timeless yet preppy concept! Add a pair of skinny or boyfriend cut jeans with your favorite ankle booties topped with a basic tee {like I mentioned in the  Four Ways to Style a Basic Tee post} and a classic blazer. To spice things up,  add a scarf for a pop of color as well as some sparkly studs.

Outfit #2

[show_ms_widget id=”35956415″ image_id=”41807364″ width=”504″ height=”800″]

[show_lookbook_widget id=”317848″]

Partner a shirt dress of your choice and with a pair of your go-to riding boots. Then add a bold statement necklace and some delicate earrings and you’re good to go, girl!

Outfit #3

[show_ms_widget id=”35956416″ image_id=”41807367″ width=”502″ height=”799″]

[show_lookbook_widget id=”317852″]

Now this look has become very popular for the busy mom or for individuals for travel focusing on a Tunic tee. I absolutely adore a this longer style of top if  styled appropriately. I love wearing my leather jeggings or skinny jeans with knee-high or over the knee boots. Avoid wearing anything too bulky on the bottom where your proportions will be out of whack. Finish off the look with a long pendent style necklace.

I hope these 3 simple holiday outfit concepts give your wardrobe a little boost! Remember–you don’t have to go out and buy all new stuff to look and feel great. By reinventing your key essentials, that is all it takes!

Fashionably Yours,

Jen Young
