         After weeks of failed attempts (EXHIBIT A) to make it as a style star on my blog, my Uncle Jay was able to pass as a style stud at a wedding on August 9th. His suit screams of class and his tie adds a touch of fun with its paisley pattern. The fit of the suit is also impeccable for his body type, a straight leg pant helps to create a slim-figure, and the tailored jacket fits perfectly over his broad shoulders.   As you can tell he exudes confidence in this suit.  His poses almost surpass the modeling finess of Derek Zoolander. 
So How Do You Get Jay's Look?
(My Aunt was kind enough to share Jay's secret with me...Nordstrom and a wife.)

Wedding Edition!

        This month has been wedding crazy...and I have loved every second of it.  Two of my favorite people in the world got married on August 9th-my brother, Spenser, and and one of my best friends, Kourtney-to each other!  To celebrate their special day I just had to show off their classy taste.
       Our bridesmaids outfits were really simple but they had an elegant and fun flair.  We all chose our own white tops and black skirts then Kourtney gave us a red flower belt to pull it all together. 

So..How Do You Get This Classy, Sassy Wedding Look??

1. A Sophisticated White Blouse:

2. A Sexy Black Skirt:
3. A Sassy Red Belt:

Thanks to Kourtney for picking out our great outfits! We had such a great time on your special day.  Thanks to you too for following my blog! It's so fun looking for cute outfits that can mix, match, and be dressed up, or down!  Remember to e-mail me your favorite looks and keep checking back every week to see the new style stars!

                  I know...I am completely lame, I haven't blogged in way too long.  Life gets crazy but I am going to make sure to at least blog once a week...if not more.  Just stay posted. Anyway!  Meet Andie!  I met her in Banana Republic at the University Mall and I not so smoothly asked her if I could put her on my blog.  She was really sweet and decided to play along.
                I like Andie's look because it is casual but it still looks put together and unique.  Instead of a plain T-Shirt with shorts she opted for a chiffon blouse in a deep blue which dresses up the outfit and makes it more put-together.  Her white shorts also have a unique touch with a white rope belt.  The accessories she uses definitely pull the outfit together and make it fun.  She is wearing white, studded sandals along with a flower headband that she made herself. 

So...How Do You Get Her Look?? 
1. A Flirty Chiffon Blouse:

(Christina Chiffon, Alloy.com) ***As a side note...I am in love with this particular shirt! Oh it is so beautiful!!

2. Some Unique Shorts:
(BEAUTIFUL Bow shorts, Modcloth.com)
(Blue Essence Twill Pant, Nordstrom.com)**If you aren't into shorts these white pants would be perfect with a deep blue chiffon shirt like the ones above!**

3. Studded Strappy Sandals:
(Jewel Studded Coach Sandal, Nordstrom.com)
(Deep Blue Sandal, Modcloth.com)

4. A Cute Headband:
To get a great headband like Andie's, e-mail her at andie3.141@gmail.com to request one!  As you can tell she makes way cute ones!

Thanks for following my blogposts and thanks again to Andie for being such a great model! I hope they are giving you new ideas and helping you to get out of your clothes comfort zone!  Remember you can mix and match, switch things up, take a few things, or remake the whole outfit to look good on your body type!  E-mail me with any questions about what would look good on you and don't forget to send in pictures of your favorite outfits so you can become the next style star!  Get your friends to become followers...remember once we hit 50 followers I am going to have a give away!  Have a great week!
