Fashion

A little bit of style, a little bit of sass. Here you’ll see what I’m visually about.

A hidden gem

I’ve lately been in love with this amazing weather! Although today started off a bit rainy, the sun did not fail to bring us some shine and a nice breeze. This season is perfect to bring out all your flowy dresses and fun hats!

But first, let me tell you about a new discovery that I made. As you know, I recently moved to a new city so I’ve been exploring non-stop for some great local stores. A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon a hidden gem named Ecologie Vintage. I am a huge sucker for local artist so I decided to check them out. You won’t believe what I found….

The first thing I said was, “don’t judge it on the hanger. You know better Jocelyne.” So I gave it try and look where we are now.

This dress was perfect for my day off. And the best part… it was only $3! (shhh! don’t tell anyone)

So if you are ever in the area, go check them out! They are super nice and you never know what you might find 😉

Happy first day of May everyone!

Trust me, I’m a stylist

“Dun dun dundun, dun dun dundun…” It’s wedding season!

Ladies and gentlemen, we are gathered here today to discuss the most important thing for a bride… her dress. Getting married is a special day for everyone. Whether it’s her first or her third, the bride deserves to feel special. I have been a bridal stylist for a little over a year now, and I’m excited to share with you some amazing tips from a stylist’s point of view that can help make shopping for “the one” easy-peezy (it’s about to get juicy).

Let’s get started!

MENTAL PREP: On your wedding day, you can shine as much as you want, and you are the boss because it’s YOUR DAY! OWN IT, GUUURL! Be positive and confident, have fun, and most importantly, have an open mind.  If you are a ballgown princess bride be open to trying on a mermaid. You’ll be surprised how great you can look in one 😉

RESEARCH: Having a visual reference is great way to give your stylist a starting point. Go through the store’s catalog or website and save your favorites. Even Pinterest is a huge help! It gives you, the bride, an idea of what to expect and not get overwhelmed when you walk into a store.

GUEST: I know we all want to share this amazing experience with everyone and don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings by not including someone. However, having too many guests can bring a lot of opinions and it can get overwhelming for you and everyone else around you. Keep your party to a minimum. Seeing your dress is also a great surprise for your guest on the day of your wedding.

BUDGET: A wedding, big or small, can get very pricey. When you budget for a dress be sure to include the following: your dress (duh), undergarments, shoes, accessories, and the big one, alterations. A lot of brides tend to forget about alteration which can sometimes be as much of your dress or even more.

TIME: My answer is no, you are not crazy if you buy your dress a year in advance. A wedding dress can take weeks to get in. On top of that you also need time for alterations. You don’t want to wait till the last minute and not have time to fix any possible errors. Believe me, I’ve seen it and it’s not pretty.

Well there you have it folks! Feel free to drop down any questions below and let me know how your experience on finding ‘the one’ goes!

Give summer the boot, fall is here!

Hi there!

Its me again, and I’m finally able to share my excitement with ( if you haven’t guessed ) FALL! Although it still gets pretty warm in the afternoons down here, the morning breeze is to die for…..And you can’t forget the countless outfits this season brings us. For starters, here’s one of mine!

This blouse was found on sale (of course) at Aeropostale. I absolutely love it because its loose (hides the rolls ), SUPER comfy, and has cute detailed tassels on the back and arms. Now, let me tell you about these jeans. For starters, they are $7 bucks from Forever 21 and they are so worth your money! You can never go wrong with a good pair of jeans (it also makes the 🍑 look good 😉 ). As for my favorite part of this post…it’s gotta be the boots. I’ve had these boots for a while and I’ve recently rescued them from the black hole in my closet. If you have an old pair that you think are too old, try them on again, and maybe in a different way. You might find the old shine they once had 🙂

summer is that you?

Hello!

After a busy week of finals I’m finally able to share with you one of my favorite photo shoots that I did about two weeks ago. Shout out to Ellen Spivey for these awesome shots!

As you probably know by now, I tend to go for comfort in my clothing. These pants are the definition of comfort. I had gotten these when  worked at HOPE’S, a small boutique store back home. They are currently out of stock but hopefully they will bring something as cute as these again for this summer. I paired it up with a simple crop top I found on SALE at Target.

See ya later!

Spring Time Fun Time

Hey guys!

This week I wanted to start off in style! Bringing back my all time favorite floppy hat to help pull together this super cute and comfy outfit. Jumpsuits are awesome simply because you can totally dress them up or ditch the blazer and get casual. This is the perfect outfit for a daytime or dress it up for a night time look.

Check below for more details on this outfit and let me know your thoughts on this look!

Casually being casual 

A couple of months ago I received this shirt form a family friend that told me that I would find some use to it even though it was not my sized. She was right. This oversized button down is now one of my favorite go to dresses. I simply added a thin belt, rolled up my sleeves and there you have it. A simple casual dress that is perfect for any sunny afternoon. You can definitely dress this up with a cute cross body purse and popping jewelry. This is a great way to reuse some old clothing and/or even your old dad’s shirts could work (he doesn’t have to know)

Pep in my step

Hola everyone!

So the big reason behind this post is pretty much an excuse to show off the new members of my shoe family. But first, let me explain why I just had to post this! When it comes to shoes (especially heels), I tend to look away immediately. It takes me forever to break any shoe in, so I rather not even deal with the problem. However, these shoes are now my go-to pair. They may look like another regular pair of wedges but let me tell you something girlfriend…these shoes are magical! Not only are they comfortable, but SUPER cute! I love how these can just tie in the simplest outfit together. I linked similar items of my outfit since I couldn’t remember where I’ve gotten each piece. But don’t panic! The shoes are there and on SALE!

I also want to give a specially thank you to Ellen Spivey for once again taking these amazing shots!

Hasta tomorrow!

Jumping into it

Hey guys! Before I jump into my obsession of my new Michael Kors jumper, I want to thank my good friend Ellen Spivey for taking these amazing shots! Go follow her on Instagram @espivey and show her some love! Ok, time for business. I love this outfit! I want to talk first about this jumper. Even with the high 90 degrees temperature, I managed to stay really cool and non-sticky! I am wearing a size medium and it was just a perfect fit. The adjustable straps were a plus. Being 5’4 did not go well with the length of the jumper. I did have to wear some wedges, but that was no big deal. That is where my awesome Nine West shoes came in. I decided to add a light weight cardigan and to tie up the outfit, nothing says summer than a fedora and some Betsey Johnson sunglasses. Enjoy your summer!

Boho Life

When you get asked to showcase your style, what better place is there than downtown Savannah. It’s historical background and beautiful square gardens were perfect to snap a couple of pics as I was “making my way downtown” (yes, White Chicks fan, I know). This outfit is one of my absolute favorites.It really describes who I am: that boho girl who loves being free, especially when expressing herself through clothes. Recently, floppy hats have become one of my biggest weaknesses. I love this dress in particular because it flatters my body type in a way I feel very comfortable in. Since this is the south, you can’t go wrong by adding some booties (hehe) to complete the look.  No need to make a statement with popping colors. Just the right pieces in the right order.
