Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from Just Jess Fashion! Sincerest apologies for having taken so long to get back on here but as I’m sure you your self can attest to, the Holidays can ┬ábe rough on one’s time management skills.

But alas, I wanted to take a moment to share with you some of my favorite OOTD moments, Pinterest success stories and holiday decor ideas. Ugly sweaters are no longer limited to a cozy ensemble. I loved pairing my reindeer sweater with my new favorite maxi skirt and Louboutins. And can you believe that the whole thing came from Forever 21?! Since I’m back at a mall where I’m literally just steps away from some of the most notorious “fast fashion” stores, I’ve discovered a new appreciation for trendy pieces that don’t break the bank.

For New Years, I went with the ever classic sequined ensemble with one of my new favorite pieces residing in my closet. The vintage jacket came from my fashion inspiration, my grandma. My uncle teased that I would be just like her when I turned 80 something and who wants to wait that long when she’s still a fasionista that would make even Blanche from the Golden Girls awe in envy.

I hope you enjoyed your Holidays just as much as I did dear readers and I can’t wait to see what Fashion adventures 2016 brings!

Happy Hippy

While I have had many a discussion lately about taking my wardrobe to a more “grown up/ mature” level, there’s still that little hippy in me that every now and again likes to make an appearance. And today, when the weather was practically a million and ten degrees out and one of my favorite Free People tops kinda poked out of my closet I couldn’t help but release my inner Karen Arnold.

And one of my favorite parts of dressing in a boho/ hippy vibe? There is no such thing as too many accessories. I even brought out the hoops today! And I never wear hoops (especially big ones for fear my ear is gonna get caught on something and torn off.) Added bonus of this ensemble? My favorite Dolce Vita sandals! I always love the response I get from people when I wear them. I’ve been stopped a few times by people who thought I wasn’t even wearing shoes. One notorious characteristic of a hippy is free love, free speech and freedom to wear whatever. I think freedom from wearing restrictive shoes is a under appreciated but yet equally important variable in achieving the perfect vintage 60’s look. Peace and love dear readers!
