I've decided every Monday I will share announcements (if any) regarding blog world, other projects, stuff coming up, cross overs, etc! Here we go:
- So, the Broncos are in the Super Bowl! I love all things Denver so I'm pretty excited. Ironically, (American) Football ranks the lowest for me in my 4 major sports, but I did a blog post this past fall about how to style yourself to watch football games so here's a refresher! Unless you're totally invested in the Panthers, I invite and encourage you to cheer for the Broncos with me in the Super Bowl (wear orange, blue, and white!) Hehe.
- Below is my collage of #jennyjanuary outfits from last week. The third, sixth, and last photos were NOT shared on the blog but only Instagram. My pal Paola from the Hepburn Movement did a blog post with tons of collages, including a photo with me in one or two of them, so if you're more curious about the fuss of #jennyjanuary read all about there as well!
Blog posts for #1 HERE, #2 HERE, #4 HERE, #5 HERE, #7 HERE (thank you so much for the kind words and thoughts on the last one too)
A full review of Jenny skirts can be found HERE
Behind the dress + styling: This was my second ever Bernie Dexter dress! It was long gone from most retail sites and it was just a lucky eBay find. The halter style of Bernie dresses, which this is, are possibly my favorite! This is my first time ever winterizing this dress, despite that I've owned it for a few years. So...lol...my tights are pink but photographed practically red in the photos! This look is a little more funkier over "pulled together" than I intended it to be, but whatever. I like it either or!
Style details: After taking a quick vay-kay from headbands, I'm back with this purple one! Most of mine are from Forever 21, but some (including this one) are from random eBay sellers. The glasses are a Svedka vodka promotion glasses that I got at an Art Festival a few years ago but love wearing. The best things in life are free, right? My jacket was a lucky Burlington Coat Factory find, the brooch is Deer Arrow, the necklace is ModCloth, the belt is a from another dress, the tights are Hue, and the shoes are Guess via Marshalls.
Motivation time: Stop hating Mondays. Sure, they can be a drag. But they're a day of your life that you'll never get back, so don't complain ;) Find a reason to celebrate Mondays, even if you have a conventional schedule where it's hard to get your focus back on this day.
Music time: I didn't have a great song name in mind to name this blog post after originally! But after brainstorming with some Spotify playlists and such, I found "Purple Rain" by Prince to be fitting! A purple dress with rain clouds coming in...c'mon! I don't know where Prince ranks in my 100 or so favorite musicians, but he does rank! His music is so fun and it never fades away. The fact that he used to go by a symbol too never seems to get old joke wise!
