Pintribute Pin Pal: Trista Granberry

A few weeks back I blogged about my obsession for Bold Pants, so when Trista pinned these (to DIE for!) floral printed pants, I just had to share it!  All the prints and the colors on each pair is amazing!  These pants are such a statement, I love them!  Trista found the photos of the bold pants on the blog …love Maegan and there you will find sooo many more styles of these bold pants AND where to buy them! Thanks Trista for pinning on PINTRIBUTE and sharing with everyone… i love, love, love it!

If you want to be my PIN PAL so that your pins can be shared and featured on my blog, it’s really easy all you have to do is send me your Pinterest username in a comment or message and I will be sure to add you to the Pintribute w/ Jen Clyde Stylist board.  Happy Pinning!!

Color Blocking Is Rocking Spring 2012..You Ready??

Color Blocking 101

Color blocking heating up spring 2012! Learn how to find your color combo!

Yes, spring is almost here! I like to always bring spring in a bit early by throwing some amazing color into my life! It is true that color does affect your mood. Whether the color is on you or around you, it can make that personality shine! A unique quality of the color blocking trend is that it can be utilized by women of all ages and during every type of adventure that we create when we color block. If you are at work, rocking a bridesmaid dress, out on the town with friends, or just a cute mom shopping at target, when you got color blocking you got the most wearable fashion trend for spring. There are no excuses! So what are you waiting for? It goes right along with my most favorite word “MisMatched Moments”..or ok….I guess two words. So, try this new trend even if you donʼt love color. Keep reading and i’ll give tips for the “not quite sure gal” to the “I am obsessed like Jen Clyde girl.” Here are my words of color wisdom:

1. For The “Not Quite Sure” gal: Start off small. You will keep more money in that color blocked wallet of yours if you don’t buy a brand new outfit that hangs in your closet with tags on it all summer because you wanted to be on trend but really couldn’t commit. Donʼt waste your time, money, or closet space. Start off with a cute pair of shoes that are one big, bright, bold color…. or even a color blocked shoe with two colors! Maybe throw in a color blocked scarf. Either way, you are staying on trend but being true to yourself. Donʼt over do it and just baby step. You may find yourself wanting more color once you have introduced it in small doses, you know? Be confident! Show your true colors in tiny segments. Get your color blocking accessory today.

2. For the “Ok, I’m in but still need my safe black”: Ok I know I know, I am a stylist and I dress thousands of women, so I know that you all need your black or safe neutral! Itʼs almost like your security blanket…and I get that. Some donʼt like a huge color blocked on their behind because they donʼt want it to look bigger then it is, right? Or maybe you donʼt like your middle, or upper chest? So why would you block it with color? I get it! Trust me, I hear your concerns. So my word of wisdom to you is this: go with your color but anchor it with some black or neutral color such as grey! Not white though… you need to have that dark to pull it all together like a tight rope! Also, donʼt be afraid to clash and mismatch….hello, this is not a matching game we are playing here! So maybe stick with two colors and then add in a splash of neutral. A great place to throw the neutral color is in your problem areas or as a accessory with your belt, shoes, cardigan, necklace, or just anywhere to tie the outfit into one!

3. For the “I’m Obsessed, now show me which color is best?”: Stick with two or three colors at best so you donʼt look like a hot mess! That totally rhymed, but anyways moving on….. Ok choose mostly clean, no patterns, un-fussy silhouettes to keep it together like a beautiful rainbow. Some of my favorite combos are Pink and Red. This to me just works like an unexpected moment you thought would never come together. But it did and it does and it looks amazing! I also really love Teal and deep Blues. Another one to try is Yellow and Reds, so hot! Also Pink, Purple, Teal, and Orange scream, “I am amazing and I know how to color block.” So get your color on and have your spring moment be a bit mismatched and donʼt be afraid to color outside of the circle! Happy Spring!

Just remember there are really no wrong ways here, just wear it with confidence. There are so many stores from all different price points like Target to Gucci, that have these trends right now so itʼs for every one of all ages and sizes. Remember, donʼt color your troubled areas it just screams louder than it needs to in all the wrong places! Happy Coloring.

Last Minute Freshen up Valentine Ideas Out Of Your Own Closets!

Last Minute Freshen up Valentine Ideas

Itʼs that time of year again that people either love, or love to hate! Well if one thing is for sure, letʼs not hate your style! Fashion is one of the most thought out moments that happens for Valentines day. Thoughts like, “I want to look amazing, but not too over dressed”, “I donʼt have plans but still want to look good as a mom just hanging out with the family”, and “I donʼt have a date, but loving this night to go out with my best girlfriends and look HOT!”

There are so many different moments this special night that will make us stand out to others, our special person, or just standing out as your beautiful self even when your playing XBOX with your 4 boys (like I will be doing). You can still look beautiful in every stage of your life, either date or no date. Donʼt be forget about yourself this year. If anything, do something to freshen up last-minute from your own closet to stand out tonight. Whatʼs my secret? Confident, colors, accessories, memories, and beauty.

For the girl who has plans to party with the girls: Ok so you donʼt have a date tonight, maybe you donʼt want one? Maybe you just broke up and you need to go put on that red mini dress feel HOT and play that part well? Well you’re go to is some amazing red piece that makes you stand out in a crowd. You want to feel great and look great tonight. You can do this without looking desperate. Just a little red-hot moment with the right dress and simple accessory. I vote all the way to sparkle like crazy in a little ICE. AKA diamonds…..more specifically, Say Hello Diamonds. You want to look and feel like a million dollars and the best way is to look like someone else is loving you with all that bling you are sporting. Lastly go everywhere with confidence. This is a must and you will be your most beautiful self tonight when you feel the way you look and that is gorgeous. Grab your clutch and have a blast.

For the girl who has plans to be with the man she loves for a special date: So itʼs that special date, and either you have had the pleasure of having this date with the same person for many years or maybe itʼs a new date without any idea where it will go? Well for your moment you want to go with the last-minute beauty, colors, and accessories. A lot of us donʼt have time to go buy something new for this small holiday. So, pick out something that maybe might be the one outfit he has always loved or will always start to love.

I love the thought of having over 45 years with someone and having him still remembering what his favorite jacket of your is. Or maybe itʼs his favorite dress you have he loves to see you in, but you want to freshen it up. Make it feel a bit newer, if you will? So go for a bold necklace and those diamond studs that he gave you years before and it will help him remember you still love that he notices you. Pick his favorite color to wear to dinner, so after all these years you are the beauty he has always loved. If this is one of your first dates, try to pick something that will make him remember you, from the first date to many more too come. This means you will be sitting at a table so go for highlighting you face and upper half. Wear soft tone make up. Not dark. Look fresh with maybe a diamond necklace or something colorful on your neck so his attention is only on you this year. Less is more for this holiday. Donʼt over do it, you will have many more years to come to impress him donʼt pile it all on one first date, men canʼt handle too much. So go for the right accessories and the right colors to highlight your upper half.

For the women who have a family and canʼt go out on a date tonight, but instead makes a date with the family: So if your like me, you have kids! I am so thankful for them, but sometimes I just ignore this holiday because I feel like it really doesn’t matter. Itʼs on a school night so a sitter is not an option, and we have a family so we canʼt go out. Well here is what I think……you can still look your stylish self so when you and your hubby and kids are playing a game or having a big family dinner together, your man can still look across that dinner table and see his beautiful wife….or when you’re playing a game with the kids you can be that slowed down moment in time as he looks at you be your most beautiful when your laughing.

So tonight after you get dinner all fixed, run into your closet and throw off the sweats and maybe try to through on some comfy jeans or jeggings with a cute t-shirt for valentines or even a cute red sweatshirt and some red lips! I mean normally you wouldn’t ever throw on some red lips as you’re just in a sweatshirt, but that’s what I think is so cute and stylish about it all for the perfect valentine’s look. You look comfy, sweet, and fun! Even your kids will be like “Wow mom you look beautiful!” You want your kids to understand that this holiday is about loving and even if itʼs a night with the kids, make them feel like you got dressed up for them! Make them feel special. Throw on some earrings that sparkle. Like tonight I will be wearing my Love To Love sweatshirt, some Say Hello Diamond diamond earrings and jeans. i am set with some style and comfort.

I think it is important to feel beautiful no matter what stage of your life you are in. You are loved! You are beautiful! Never feel like you canʼt be more stylish than the girl who just went and spent $200 on her dress next to you. You can always dress up an old dress with accessories and new shoes or tights. One thing to remember is that Valentine’s night you want to look timeless…so think less is more. This is where I break out the diamonds instead of the pearls or big statement necklaces. Look and feel your most beautiful and that is where your confidence meets your style. Have a wonderful Valentines Day!
