The time is FINALLY here! The Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale Pre-sale has begun and I am all kinds of excited about it. To celebrate this joyous occasion I am giving you my top picks from the sale, and a little more info on why I think you all might need these items in your wardrobe.

 

  1. Chelsea28 Bell Sleeve Poplin Top

This top is all that is right with the dramatic sleeve! Paired with skinny jeans or a pencil skirt, you can take it from work to play in a matter of stylish seconds.

 

  1. Sonix Parker 55mm Sungalsses

In the heat of the summer would there be anything more perfect to purchase at this blowout sale than a fabulous pair of sunnies? Some-times paying a pretty penny for accessories is hard to do. But this tortious shell pattern is great for pairing with both black and brown for a versatile option.

 

  1. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

There is little to say about this perfume except that it is one of my favorites! The smell is not overbearing and lasts all day long.

 

  1. Hanky Panky Underwear

I’ve said it before, and will say it again… Undergarments are the core to any wardrobe. Having the right items is crucial for making an outfit work. These Hanky Panky underwear are great for seamless lines and a comfortable fit.

 

  1. Vince Corbin Slip-On

The athleisure wear trend seems to be here to stay for quite some time, and I can’t complain! These slip-ons are great for running to the market or pairing with a dress.

 

  1. Hinge Barris Block Heel Bootie

In this summer heat it may be hard to picture yourself in booties, but these are an amazing pair I would suggest considering! They are stylish yet classic and will be great for the fall and winter season.

 

  1. Halogen Corbin Genuine Calf Hair Slide Loafer

Leopard is a neutral and my signature item. These flats are great for getting around town and perfect for throwing into your purse or luggage for extra-long walking days. Cute and comfort is no longer as hard to find, but it is always nice to have a few staples of it in your closet.

 

  1. Halogen A-Line Leather Skirt

Good leather is hard to come by and great to have. Halogen is a brand I love, and one I use for staple items for many of my clients. Having a skirt that can be dressed up or dressed down is great for your staple wardrobe.

 

  1. Halogen Flounce Back Shift Dress

Perfect for summer and great with a light jacket for all other times! I have really gotten into the shift dress this year and this one is not only adorable but the vertical lines are flatter on almost every body type.

 

  1. PJ Salvage Jersey Chemise

A place I see many clients ignore is their sleepwear. It is easy to throw on an old torn up tee or those oversized sweats you’ve had for years. I challenge you to step out of what is comfortable when it comes to pajamas. This little nighty is soft, and will make you feel fabulous when hitting the pillow.

 

  1. MAC Hooked On Nude Eye Kit

Every girl needs a little makeup in her life! This kit is perfect for staying natural but looking fabulous. I have always given kudos to MAC for their long lasting products, this kit is no different.

 

  1. NuFace White Trinity Facial Toning Kit

I will be the first to say that doing things to keep yourself feeling fresh and maintained is well worth it. If you haven’t used the NuFace Toning Kit this is a great time to test it out.

 

  1. Paint Stripe Transporter Leather Tote

The tote that can hold it all but doesn’t look like it! You can bring this to work, pack it for play or even use it as your carry-on. It is fabulous for the working woman!

 

  1. Adidas Original Trefoil Hoodie

Hello athletic staple item. I have to say; Adidas is a brand I am so happy to still see around. It is a classic look that you don’t have to feel bad about dressing down for.

 

  1. Nordstrom’s Signature Cashmere Pullover Sweater

Who doesn’t love cashmere?? Better yet, who doesn’t love it on sale! This is one of the Anniversary items that makes everything worth it. To have a piece of clothing with a usually steep price tag for just a pretty penny (almost but not really!) is why I love promoting this sale!

 

 

And for all my lovely clients who are wanting some help shopping through the sale, I have just a few spots left for virtual and in-person styling appointments! Email me to book: jen@foreverstyled.com

Vacay Chic at Fab’rik

Fab'rik blogger

 

Hello my lovely ladies! I am so excited to announce the upcoming sip and shop happening this week at Fab’rik. Join me Thursday, from 4 PM to 6 PM to see the latest in vacay chic fashion. I will be helping style outfits for your beach trips, lake trips, and all the trips in between! It’s time to kick off your summer in style, and Fab’rik is the perfect place to do it.

And of course, for my fabulous friends, I have to give a little sneak peek. Here are two outfits, one for day and one for night, that I couldn’t take my eyes off of!

Let’s dive right in to this amazing Fab’rik tank and short combo. If you are anything like me, shorts are a tough one. Finding a pair that is long enough to feel comfortable but stylish enough to look good is not always easy. These are perfect! The pink and purple pattern is adorable and great for throwing on and going to the pool or into town for a little shopping excursion. The pop of pink is great for breaking up an outfit, and the lace up shoes are a nice touch. You can also throw on a pair of sandals or a wedge to dress the outfit up or down.

And for night… This maxi is AMAZING! For someone who is not a maxi kind of girl, I have been taken by this one. I will let you in on a secret…it is the first maxi I have added to my wardrobe since the season of wearing maternity clothes in 2003 when I gave birth to my son. I know –crazy. The pattern is perfect for beach wear, and not “so in your face” you could put in in your regular wardrobe rotation! Paired with some wedges and a fab hat you are set for the sun! I added a strappy bra-let under my maxi to add a little added detail.

I would also like to take a moment to point out the amazing beaded stackable TEE bracelets I’m wearing. These are a Fab’rik staple, and a statement piece in your accessory collection. They are sweet, simple, and affordable but make a great impact for any outfit.

You can purchase all of these items Thursday night! Hoe to see you there!

2017 Summer Beach Totes

[show_ms_widget id=”35985194″ image_id=”41843055″ width=”800″ height=”1200″]

Hello  Sunshine!

Hope your local weather forecast, like the rain we’ve had in Austin, hasn’t brought you down in the dumps. Perhaps many of you can’t wait to head to the beach or simply seek out the warm summer sun instead?  I don’t know about you, but some serious Vitamin D is calling my name. I mean, have you seen my mayonnaise legs in the latest posts? Not even photoshop could make those babies bronzed.

So here is the great news, wether you are relaxing at your neighborhood pool or going to Cabo with the family, we have some trendy and stylish summer beach totes that will have you turning heads. Call it the next step to LAST WEEK’S blog!

I’ve picked some of my favorites totes from hot spots like Nordstrom, Everything But Water, Anthropologie, and my current obsession–Draper James. Reese Witherspoon, you are my southern, lady-friend hero. Is there nothing you can’t do?

[show_ms_widget id=”35985199″ image_id=”41843061″ width=”800″ height=”1200″]

ONE // TWO // THREE // FOUR // FIVE // SIX // SEVEN // EIGHT // NINE // TEN // ELEVEN // TWELVE // THIRTEEN

As you can tell there are so many adorable choices out there! Pick one that best represents your personality and style.

1.}  Flamingo Straw Tote– A simple and tropical bag that gives any outfit or swimsuit a pop of color.

2.} Blush Straw Bag– I love the unique body style and handle on this bag! Its subtle color promotes a modern but natural flair.

3.} Milagro Circular Handbag– This bag really stood out to me because of its unexpected shape and the adorable touch of detail in the pompoms.

4.} Ague D’ Mar Tote– Now I know this is a bit of a wild choice, but it’s so quirky and fun! Big brother is watching. Just saying. Where are the built in cameras?

5.} Totes Y’all Vanderbilt Tote– You can never go wrong with a bold script canvas bag, especially one that features the signature Draper James magnolia-shaped hardware. Did I mention Reese Witherspoon is my southern sister from another mother?

6.} Mirabel Tote– This tote just screams beach party! I love its traditional shape that is woven with colorful cotton.

7.} Alice + Olivia Stace Face Straw Tote– This bag is a total girly-girl accessory. I love a dramatic bag with a whole lot of personality. I wish my eyelashes were that long!

8.} Watermelon Cool It Y’all Tote– Summertime warrants something covered in watermelons or pineapples–perfect for making a fashion statement and adding flair to your poolside attire.

9.}  Kayu Piñata Tote– What a dramatic and playful tote to carry on your arm! The striped texture of the tote is soft to the touch and is large enough to stuff a bunch of pool/beach toys inside.

10.} Fallon & Royce’s Tote– Another script canvas tote but its clever graphic statement, that makes me smile, is made out of sparkly beads!

11.} Mar y Sol ‘Ibiza’ Woven Tote– Now if this does scream, “I’m made for summer!”- I don’t know what does! This is definitely one of my favorites and is on my wish list.

12.} Tory Burch Gemini Link Tote– No woman can go wrong with a Tory Burch bag! I love this orange and navy color combo and pattern, and the fact that it is waterproof. This style of a tote can also easily transition from work to play.

13.} Lilly Pulitzer Bohemian Tote– This tote is on the smaller size, but it certainly makes a punch with its rich, bright tones!

Below are some more great finds. Take a look and shop for your summer go to tote!

Hey Everyone!

As summer comes to an end there are endless things to do including buying school supplies and clothes for my two amazing kiddos. I am so blessed to be a mom, but when I’m taking them to summer camps, friends houses, and soon enough– school and practice, I still want to look cute and comfortable! Enter in…HOT PINK MILITARY STYLE.

Just because you’re a mom, community influencer and/or a busy professional like me, that doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish and on trend. For example, I’m wearing a fuss free option with my daughter, Julia, when we went to the local candy and ice cream shop, The Candy Jar, in the Hill Country Galleria in Austin.

What I love most about this outfit is that it’s so versatile and easy to accessorize. You can also dress it up or down.  This hot pink A-Line dress from Gap {similar here} and a lightweight military jacket from Nordstroms Rack is an unexpected combination of trendy and fun. I’ve paired this concept with some of my favorite suede Sam Edelman sandals {similar here} and a necklace from one of my good friends Chesley House of Chesley Mae Designs {also featured in my past “Off the Shoulder” outfit blog post.}

Then I added some arm candy from Stella & Dot and Fab’rik where you can find some great steals on jewelry! But of course, I always start my day with coffee so I included my “But First Coffee” coffee travel mug for when I’m on the go.

Hope you have a fabulous rest of your summer and that you have some inspiration for your next outfit!

Top Six Summer Fragrances

[show_ms_widget id=”35684208″ image_id=”41532583″ width=”800″ height=”1200″]

CHLOÉ // BEACH // DAISY // POP // JO MALONE // BONBON

Hello Gorgeous!

Let’s face it…the best way to complete any outfit is with one of my lovely top six summer fragrances. Either it’s the same scent you’ve bought for years or perhaps you like to change up your perfume once a month or once a week like me. Regardless,  it’s something that pervades as a first impression of yourself. I’ve picked some of my favorite summer fragrances that will hopefully be your daily “go-to’s” or become a seasonal favorite!

Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 9.53.56 AM

Beach by Bobbi Brown is a light and happy scent made from jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin. This fragrance brings warm sunshine as well as the sea breeze to your day; it can be worn anytime, anywhere. Its subtle aroma works well from day to night and is great for sensitive skin.

Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 9.53.22 AM

Chloé is a classic and feminine scent. Its fresh and floral flair accenting pink peony {my fave}, freesia, lychee, magnolia flower, lily of the valley, rose, cedar wood, amber, and honey is perfect for your destination beach vacation or daily wear. I love the roll on style as it is easy to throw in your purse in case you need a quick fix for your underarm “yuck!”

Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 9.58.10 AM

Daisy by Marc Jacobs {among intern, Hanna’s, favorites} is a very popular and edgy scent. Its floral appeal with a vintage hint of violet is stunning. Strawberry, violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit, gardenia, violet petals, jasmine petals, musk, vanilla, and white woods articulate the fragrance.

Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 10.37.32 AM

Pop by Stella McCartney is a woodsy and bright fragrance. With tomato leaves, violet leaves, green mandarin, violet, tuberose, plumeria, sandalwood, cedar wood, and musks, it’s a very contemporary and sophisticated scent.

Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 10.08.12 AM

Jo Malone is a classic “must have” despite its price point.  This multiple variety incentive box will please everyone’s pallet. Check out the recent Nordstrom Anniversary Sale blog post where I talked about the fabulous deal for this amazing set. Jo Malone London scents can be worn individually or layered for truly complex effects.

Screen Shot 2016-07-24 at 10.58.23 AM

BONBON by Viktor & Rolf is my current summer ESSENTIAL scent, and I cannot leave the house without a few sprits. This timeless and delicious aromatic dessert has hints of  juicy fruits, sun drenched flowers in the sweet creamy woods that create a delightful and irresistible smell. And seriously… the bottle is absolutely adorable!

I hope these picks have made you want to go try one of my favorite summer fragrances this summer!! Honestly, I love partnering aromas to each of my outfits because the right fragrance can truly make or break a good first impression.

What are your favorite scents? I would love to hear more about what you are wearing.

Off The Shoulder Trend

Summer is here and I am sporting the off the shoulder trend AGAIN….{check my last  Fourth of July Holiday Fashion post for another off the shoulder idea!}

While you are reading this post, I am unwinding with my kids and parents in the sunny land of Florida. This new chambray dress from J.Crew came in tow with me on my vacation that I was dying to share with y’all! I adore this fuss free and versatile dress this is perfect not only for the beach while sipping a pina colada, but also for brunch with your girlfriends or a date night out.

I chose to pair this dress with some chunky floral heels from JustFab which a lot of people might pass up if they see in stores because they would have no idea how to wear them. Unfortunately, the shoes sold out online in like 2 days, but I found a few other shoe options listed below that are very similar! To draw the eye up and down, I chose to a long, colorful pendent necklace which I found at one of my favorite stores, fab’rik. My accessories also include custom made gold earrings care of Five Star Jewelry Brokers and a clutch gifted to me from my good friend and talented designer of Chesley Mae designs.

Investing in a wardrobe staple like this denim frock is a good idea. While it is considered a more trendy item, it will stay in rotation for several years given there are many different ways you can bring out your own personality as you style this adorable off the shoulder gem.

Check out some more options to create the look I’m wearing:

Fourth of July Holiday Fashion

Happy Fourth of July!!

OMG I can’t believe June is already gone. What the heck?

Today is the day we Americans celebrate our freedom whether at a backyard BBQ party or shooting off fireworks, all the while sporting our red, white, and blue. Many of us might just resort to our simple blue jeans and a graphic flag t-shirt on this day, but try a fun patterned  option with our American colors instead!

I have been loving the summer trend featuring off the shoulder dresses and blouses. For my holiday look,  my detailed lace blouse from BB Dakota pairs nicely with these sailor striped shorts from GAP. I keep my accessories simple so as to not compete with the lace shirt including my favorite bar initial necklace and tassel earrings from Stella & Dot. What I’ve noticed about this effortless outfit is that there are many shoe options that go with this style. I’m wearing my striped wedges, but even a colored flip flop or lace up sandal would work!

Here is some more great pieces for this red, white, and blue weekend:

Tell us what you are wearing for the fourth in the comments section below! Have a fun and safe holiday weekend everyone.

What’s in my Pool Bag?!

Hey Y’all!

Summer has officially arrived and given the Texas heat I have been lounging by the pool just about everyday to cool off. There is nothing better than bagging some rays {Did I just say that–I am totally dating myself?} with a good read to relax and unwind.

My “fun in the sun” tote always includes a colorful towel, stylish shades, and my favorite sunscreen. My go-to spots for the best swimwear can be found at Nordstroms and Everything But Water. Don’t forget your woven hat that provides a stylish way to protect you from harmful sun rays but also to perfectly disguise a bad hair day from sweat and being wet!

For all the stylish moms out there, I know going to the pool or beach can be such a hassle especially if you have kids so hopefully my list of pool bag essentials will inspire you to plan ahead and feel more equipped for your next outing.

What is in your pool bag? We would love to hear from you.
