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!!

ASOS Favs!

So I’m obsessed with the site ASOS lately! So many good items for cheap. You all need to go check it out right now because they are having a sale and so many things are 70% off. I die.

These are ASOS Skinny Jeans in Panther Print and I’m obsessed! I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t just adore these. They are so perfect and so unique and guess how much they cost? $39.39. Unreal right? Right. Go buy them. I already have.

This is an ASOS Sweater in Horizontal Color Block. I am in love with both of these colors and I’m pretty sure I’m going to buy both. And this sweater only costs $42.97! Such an amazing deal. I love the off the shoulder look. And this sweater is so slouchy that anyone can pull it off.

So ladies, go to ASOS and start buying! I promise once you start shopping there you won’t be able to stop. So…maybe don’t start if you don’t need a new shopping obsession! Happy Weekend!

White Dimension!!

I am loving all of these skirts with different lengths lately! Don’t you love them? The skirts/dresses in these photos are from Magdalena Velevska and Stylestalker. They are just so beautiful and I think I love them so much because of the dimensions. Again, sorry for the summer outfits BUT I’m still super envious of summer right now! I can’t wait to be basking in the sun. Happy Weekend everyone!!

New Year, New Style, New Closet! What you need to do to start the hunt for your style!

New Year, New Style, New Closet! 

First Step in knowing how to find your own personal style, is starting with your closet makeover!

 

It’s a new year and I know there is a ton of changes, goals, and dreams that people want to aspire too. One of them is always about some change within themselves and most is how we see ourselves and how to find their own personal style. Do I have style? What is my style? How do I get style? My answer is everyone has their own personal style and they add the trends to their classics pieces throughout the year and the most important part is to understand what inspires your style? The first place I tell my clients to start is their closet makeovers. So get motivated this January, in finding your style by going through these steps.

 

1.First treat your closet like a extra room in the house, pay attention to detail like good lighting, colorful walls, and floor coverings like cute rugs.

 

2.Getting started can be the most difficult part of this process because your overwhelmed so hire a professional to help or invite a friend over so you can have help editing, because it helps to always have a second option when your emotionally connected to clothing. Then start to “edit”! These are the questions you need to ask yourself when you pull out clothing and are deciding to keep or donate.

When did I wear this last? And did I like it when I did?

Will you ever wear this again?

Classic or trendy

Do you really love it?

Dose it fit?

Is it in good shape? Is it balling up? Can I fix it?

If tags are on this and it’s been at least one month and you have not wore it yet then get rid of it! Sale it on ebay or hand it down but if you have not worn it in a month after purchase then you do not love it!

Why are you holding on to it? Goal weight?

Warning: Side note on editing, once you edit it completely remove it from your eye sight!  This is important because your eyes and mind can wander and later you could see it and get some ideas on why you want to keep it! Out of sight, out of your closet.

 

3.Once you got through the hardest part of editing which for some can take days and weeks, you are now ready to make a list on how you want to be inspired by your own closet and get creative so it’s a happy place to get dressed. Figure out what works best for you in finding your style and be functional. Here are some questions you need to think of:

Do I want to organize by category or color with my clothes? Choose what will most inspire your collection of clothing you have in your wardrobe so you will love to get dressed. This will make it easier to style, find, and wear!

Do you have all the storage boxes, extra racks, hooks, hangers, baskets that you will need? I love Ikea for storage boxes and extra cheep racks you can just throw up for extra hanging room at a great price. They also have great wardrobe boxes for storing items you won’t use for seasonal purposes or to store pregnancy clothing.

Make designated spots for wants, damaged, charity, shoes, bags, socks, tights, jewelry, and archives. Archives mean clothes that are vintage maybe or must have classics that will come back around and need to be worn again to give your style a fun new look. Archives are put in wardrobe bags and zipped up and stored in storage in the home until needed.

Now you are ready to start your process, have lot’s of music and have a lot of candy or your favorite drink because it is a long task that can sometimes be emotionally  exhausting for some as well as physically. So it’s good to have some sugar or something that makes you happy so you don’t quit!

 

4.When thinking about display think of what you love the most and will be most inspired by for your display like shoes, hats, and jewelry. Accessory can inspire any outfit and so it’s important to check in with yourself see what you like to dress around is it shoes? Then make a fun shoe display have them not in boxes but out for you to see be inspired by. Is it jewelry you love? Then make a fun DIY jewelry display so you can see it and again be inspired. So think about what will reflect you the most. Here are some fun creative ideas for display:

Reuse ice cube trays for small jewelry like earrings, rings, and broaches.  Gives unique storage for your shelves.

Candle Sticks for big bulky bracelets

For larger scarves and belts use a latter from a design decor store.

Get fun fancy funky hooks to hold bags, hats, and jewelry.

Make a old frame into a jewelry display, paint it a fun color, then use lace to staple one end to the other and then display cute earrings on it.

Colorful canvas bins for belts to hide the mess

Old bookcase paint it or put wallpaper in it and turn it into a shoe display.

Old dresser, revamp it by painting it putting velvet lining in them then use for jewelry. You can even add locks on the drawers for extra protection for those valuable jewels.

 

The end goal is know what you have, know where it is, know your style and be inspired by it! When things in your life just “click” and are able to bring you peace and joy then you are more likely to channel that peace into understanding more of who you are and what your style is! You will begin to see more of you in your clothes, and you will be able to know more of what you need as fillers in your closet and what type of items you need to buy more of instead of just buying items that don’t have any value for your wardrobe. Our biggest mistake is not knowing what we own, because then we fill like we need to go buy more, when really you can shop your own closet by giving it a facelift, a closet makeover. Hang a inspiration board of rip out magazines of what you love in your closet and you will be inspired everyday!
