3 Must Have Jeans

Hello, beautiful! I hope this post sees you well. Not going to lie to you I am feeling real motivated this week, I have some awesomeness in the works for you & I cannot wait to spill the beans. Anyway today we are breaking down the 3 must have jeans for your wardrobe. Maybe all three styles won't work for your body but I guarantee one maybe even two will. (If the short curvy girl can pull off all 3 so can you)

The Skinny Jean

I don't care if the magazines are saying that skinny jean is going out or not. In fashion there are no rules & to me skinny jean is a necessity. To balance long flowing tops & tunics a slim pant is needed on the bottom.  These skinny beauties are great to tuck into boots.

The Bootcut

The bootcut/wide leg jeans are making a comeback baby. Personally, I totally dig them. These flared finds give shape to those with a more narrow rectangular body shape. The bootcut also plays up curves. Perfectly pair with pumps, heeled booties, & clogs.

The Boyfriend Jean

The boyfriend jean is a more relaxed fit than the skinny. Instead of the skinny slim fit the boyfriend is a straight leg allowing for more give. The boyfriend is a great option for those that aren't comfortable with the skinny jean. Dress down your boyfriend jeans with sneaks as pictured or dress them up with a fitted top & pumps!

You may have noticed that two out of three of my jeans are cuffed. I like to show a little ankle not to mention I am 5'2. Petite girls I suggest getting short or petite jeans when available. For my fash dolls that are vertically blessed look for long or tall jeans, they will have your additional length. Jeans come in different kinds of washes as well: white, light wash, dark wash, medium wash, the list goes on. I suggest dark was because the color typically lasts longer.

Well fash dolls that is all I got for you today. Want to see something specific? Feel free to reach out on social media >instagram & snapchat @fashology< >twitter @fashology101<.

Stay sassy & God Bless!

Buffalo (Plaid) Solider

Hello, beautiful! I hope the first week of 2017 has been treating you well. If you have been following along you know that I work on Metrostyle catalog, as of Monday I will be now working on the sister catalog Chadwick's of Boston still as an assistant buyer. New year, new catalog. Anyway let's get to the fashion.

Three things that I have been wanting are a buffalo plaid flannel, ripped boyfriend jeans, & shell toe Adidas. This look has all three! I received the sneaks for Christmas from my hubby. (Isn't it great when men pick up on things?!) The shirt & top I actually stumbled upon at H&M. It was Friday night December 23rd, I was headed to the Celtics game with my friend Lauren & needed to kill some time. I found myself looking to spend a store credit at H&M, where I found the buffalo plaid flannel & jeans I had been looking for!

I literally used to own three pairs of these sneaks in high school. What goes around, comes back around. This look is really casual for me but this has become my weekend warrior go to; perfect for shopping, lunch, & adventures.

Well fash dolls I hope this look inspired you to try some casual pieces for yourself. Till next time!

Stay Sassy & God Bless!

Twas' the Night Before Christmas

Hello doll! It may not technically be the night before Christmas but it is Christmas Eve Eve. I have all my shopping done & I just need to finish wrapping! Can you guess where I got the inspiration for this shoot?

Every year we spend Christmas Eve at my Vovo's (grandmother's) as a young girl we wouldn't open our gifts till midnight because that's when Santa would deliver them. I remember going back to my parent's sleeping in the car on the ride home with a belly full of food & dreaming of what the man in the red suit would bring my siblings & I. Now that everyone is grown that midnight time seems to get earlier & earlier every year meaning we open gifts around 9/10.

This year is my first year as a wife & in our own home. My parent's would never allow me to dance on the coffee table so you bet I dance on mine. I had to get some festive PJ's. I hope that you & your family all have very happy holidays & a happy healthy new year!

Stay Sassy & God Bless!

Casual Chic

Hello beautiful! Welcome back to the Fashology holiday outfit series. Today I am chefing up some outfit inspo for the casual girl. Not all of us find tights or heels comfortable & that's okay, maybe your event doesn't call for dressy attire. You can still be festive yet comfortable.

This outfit is casual chic with skinny jeans as the base. I suggest wearing a top that is a "holiday" color, this could be red, maroon, green, black, etc. I topped off this ensemble with a faux fur vest. I feel that a good faux fur vest will always take any outfit to the next level. Dig the hat? Good news for you, a friend of mine is making these & they will be going on sale soon. Until then feel free to give her Instagram a follow @kuronne.co .

I would wear this look to a low key holiday party, causal Friday, or just for any day! I hope that this has given you some casual chic outfit inspo for the holiday season. Not everything you wear this month has to be covered in sequins.

Well fash dolls till next time.

Stay Sassy & God Bless!

Breaking Up Doesn't Have to be Hard to do

Breaking up doesn't have to be hard to do, breaking up your sets that is! If you remember my post Set Yourself Apart  I had been sporting a lovely little eyelet trim skirt set number from the Loft. Sets are still a relevant trend but breaking them up & pairing them with other items in your wardrobe can give you more bang for your buck!
Pictured I took the tank from the set & combined it with my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans. Completing the look with a statement necklace, sandals, & a fun clutch!
I would wear the skirt that came with this tank with a basic tee or tank, a dresser statement necklace, & a pair of wedges.
If you have a set at home don't be afraid to break it up & wear the pieces with other garments for versatility. This can decrease your cost per wear. If you don't already own a set consider getting one for yourself. You can wear them together or separate! Whatever you do make sure it's you because you are beautiful.
Well dolls till next time!
Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Blogger in a Blanket

I received this lovely blanket scarf as a gift from my dearest friend, Cousin Jill. I am absolutely obsessed with it. I will wear it around my neck with my winter coat on bone chilling New England days or use it as a shawl in the office.

I have outfitted my blanket scarf with boyfriend jeans and wedged lace up booties. I decided I wanted to try wearing my blanket scarf in a more unique way by layering it over this baseball shirt and belting it at the waist. Scarves are an easy and cost efficient way to update your wardrobe!

Give this a try for yourself if you are up for the challenge!

Well dolls till next time.

Stay Sassy + God Bless xo

Not Your Cheerleading Pom Pom

I was never a hat person prior to this season. The only time I would be caught dead in one was a baseball cap at the beach or at the gym. This season I decided to step outside my comfort zone and try a couple! I love the classic fedora from my post Baby It's Cold Outside but this pom pom beanie is so much fun. This beanie has easily become a winter weekend essential.

It's funny I got this hat on a whim. I ran into Target quick on my lunch break one day in December, I was on a mission. I needed gloves, a hat, and a flash light for a winter 5k I was running that night. I could have gotten a more basic beanie but what is the fun in that?

When I was packing to head to Portsmouth, NH this weekend with my mum for a little girls getaway this ensemble was a definite must. I'm smitten for the lace detail on this sweater and I these boots have become my favorite pair this season.

I encourage you to try something outside your comfort zone! It is easy to fall into the same items over and over again but be bold, be daring, and most importantly be-YOU-tiful.
