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!!

Cheers!!

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!

How I Do It…….

“It’s The People You Meet, Who Will Keep You There”

It’s Sunday and it’s time to relax and feel loved! You should feel loved at least once a week at least!! So hopefully today you can feel me when I say, “I Heart Your Viewers!” As you all know me I am a Fashion Stylist. I am also a working mother of 4 beautiful children. Sometimes as a mothers I think we do feel a bit guilty as if we are supposed to know how to make every move the right one. But I know the more happy I am the more happy they will be as well. I feel strong in my heart that style comes from more than just knowledge of fashion. It comes from within and it is a reflexion of what part you are playing right now in your life. When I go on a hike I want to look stylish. When I go to the grocery store with two toddlers I want to look comfy stylish and when I go out on a girls weekend I want to look stylish. Feeling like yourself in fashion is key to confidence. I wanted to say thanks for everyone who has supported my blog so far. I wanted to take a minute and tell you every comment you leave on this blog I read! I am also thankful for these comments and shares that you have given me. When I am obsessed with anything I want the world to know! I want what I love to be shown to the world for them to be inspired. I want this blog to be a fun fashion outlet that will inspire you and make you want to come back. I love feed back I love to know your out their so drop a line to me. We are never truly happy until our pieces of our puzzle are put together in  unity way. When things around me create beauty it makes me feel more calm. So today I want you to kick back and get to know a little about me my style the one you trust through this blog. So looking back the last 3 years I put some old pics some new and just a taste of Jen and How I Do It…….Happy Sunday …..
