J is for Jumpsuit {A-Z Challenge}

jumpsuits-spring-2014

jumpsuits-shopping-online-collection

Once a big fashion no-no becomes a big YES, I’m on it! And that’s what jumpsuits are this season.

Having been obsessed with them for the past two weeks, I finally made it to the store on Tuesday to try one or two on. No luck for me in that department yet. But jumpsuits are definitely flattering and compliment almost every body type. Plus they are so easy to style.

Hopefully I’ll have some amazing outfit photos for you styling a jumpsuit. And if you find a great vintage one, send the links my way! Will you?

Meanwhile I am obsessing over this Nanette Lepore jumpsuit!

Spring Jewelry 2014 and A Majestical Giveaway


Jewelry will always be one of those wild favorite things for me. I like a nice statement necklace. But I like my gold too. And anything vintage – sign me up! I brought a couple of my Grandma’s pieces from Russia and I cherish them more than anything else in the world. And as some of you know my wedding bands are 1960’s vintage square rings. Do you have a special piece of jewelry that you treasure?

Spring is all about necklaces for me, and I will be honest, it’s almost always about necklaces for me. I found some amazing pieces to share with you today, that scream spring 2014 to me!

Spring Casual {Thrift Style Thursday}

Casual-Spring-Look-Thrift-Style

Express jeans – thrifted, Converse – TJ Maxx, Pink Clutch – Clothes Mentor Minnetonka, Black top – thrifted, White sweater – thrifted, Floral scarf – thrifted, Black leather jacket – TJ Maxx

Thrift style is affordable, fun and unique. Today’s thrift style thursday is all about a casual, laid back look. And this is what you might spot me wearing on a warm (40F) spring day here in Minneapolis.

Even though spring is still far away from becoming a reality, the snow is melting, and so is my snow phobia. I am not kidding you guys, I thought I was being suffocated by snow banks. Backing out of the driveway was the most dangerous venture I’ve been on since college. And snow dams were nothing out of the ordinary. Plus I am still expecting mother nature (aka winter) to strike back!

Layering-for-spring-thrift-style

But I can literally smell spring coming, everything is melting, and my wardrobe is waiting in anticipation for the warmth. I love styling for spring, as much as I love styling for fall, even a little bit more. Spring to me means summer is just around the corner, and that’s sailing, beaches, friends, and fun.

Styling for spring can be a bit of a challenge though, and I do recommend sticking to layers, especially during those cold weeks of march/april. Here I have a black silk top, under a white silk sweater. My black leather jacket is another perfect spring accessory I am stealing from my fall wardrobe. I added the floral scarf for fun, and trends. Florals are always in. 

The jeans, even though they look like boyfriends, are actually skinny, with some natural wear and tear. I rolled them up, because there is nothing wrong with showing off a bit of skin.

Finally bright bold accessories, like this neon pink clutch, and pink Converse are my must haves!
