    Summer Party Dresses

    The season of weddings, bridal showers, graduation parties, and outdoor parties is upon us and if you’re like me you’re always on the lookout for new dresses. I took a browse at the party dresses at Quiz Clothing and found quite a few that I really liked. They have such a wide variety of style and design and such a good selection for all different body types and sizes. I’ve rounded up 5 summer party dresses that I particularly loved and see myself wearing! First up, I absolutely adore this Navy & Cream Floral Ruffle Dress. The print is so pretty, the navy trim on top is so perfect and the cascading…

    Met Gala 2018

    This is coming a day late, but I didn’t have a chance to go through all the Met Gala looks until yesterday. The theme this year was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & the Catholic Imagination” so think over the top, ornate, rich fabric looks. For some reason renaissance looks come to mind for me. I’ve rounded up some looks I personally loved below. First up, Blake Lively looked amazing as usual in Atelier Versace. I loved every inch of this dress. I read somewhere that she needed to ride in a bus because her gown wouldn’t fit in a regular car. Not sure if that was a joke or not, but I…

    Warmer Days Ahead: Spring Dress

      Warmer Days Ahead: Spring Dresses by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring pearl jewelry   Despite the fact that it’s supposed to rain multiple days this week, I’m beyond excited that the weather is finally starting to warm up. And by warm up, I mean temperatures in the mid to high 50s this week. I may have gotten a little ahead of myself yesterday when I wore a pencil skirt sans tights to work for the first time since the fall. I actually wasn’t cold (inside the building), but one of my friend’s 2nd graders said to me “Excuse me, why are you showing skin when it looks like that outside?!” Note that it…

    Bohemian Dream: Moroccan Inspired Decor

      Bohemian Dream: Moroccan Decor by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring white throw pillows   I’ve never been to Morocco, but I’d love to go one day. In the meantime, I can daydream about Moroccan vibes and bohemian inspired decor. When I think of bohemian/Moroccan decor, I think of rich textiles and tiles. For this living room, I chose a light purple blush colored chaise sofa because of the color and the fact that I’d love to be lounging on that right now! I added in some silk and textured pillows. The sofa would sit atop a diamond print Moroccan rug with a gold Moroccan side table with glass table top. Fresh flowers…

    Winter Scarf

      Wrapper’s Delight: Winter Scarf by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring monogrammed tote bags   I’m not exaggerating when I say that I want to be wearing this outfit right now. Blanket scarves are so amazing, but tricky to know when to wear. I say this because generally when it’s cold enough to wear a blanket scarf – here in the northeast at least – then it’s cold enough for me to be wearing a big, down jacket. And if I wore a winter coat and a blanket scarf at the same time I’d look like a big puff ball walking down the street! The time period when you can walk around with…

    All Black Everything

      All Black Everything by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring heeled ankle booties   I’m not one to have a set style uniform. My tastes vary too much when it comes to my personal style and I really dress according to mood much of the time. But, black will always be a classic color that anyone can pull off. For this (almost) all black look, I chose studded faux leather moto jacket to be the main focal piece of the look. To keep the look sleek, I went with black skinny jeans with some distressed fringe details, peep toe booties and black aviators. The only non-black item I have in this look is…

    Pajamas All Day

      Pajamas All Day by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring a ribbon lingerie I wish I could be in my pajamas all day and in this exact look right now. But at home, not at work. For the “Pajamas All Day” style challenge on Polyvore, I put together a pajama look that I wished I could be in at the moment. How pretty is this light pink lace trimmed charmeuse silk camisole? So pretty! Since, we’re still in winter I paired the camisole with grey velvet pajama pants and the coziest looking fleece lined robe. I’d love to be wearing these pajamas right now in a cozy spot with twinkle lights strung up…

    Ice Skating Look

      Ice Skating Date by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring Yves Salomon   I haven’t been ice skating in years, but it’s such a fun winter activity. I’ve only ice skated in an outdoor rink once, but I have gone indoor ice skating many times. I’m not a great skater, but I can make my way around the rink without falling. When Polyvore had an ice skating style challenge, I thought it’d be fun to put together a winter look. I love this winter jacket! I haven’t been in to bubble jackets since they were popular when I was in high school. But this jacket is quite fitted so I think it actually…

    Statement Shoes

      Statement Shoes by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring wide width sandals   Are you a statement shoe kind of person? I want to be, but whenever I shoe shop I end up going for the practical or cute shoes that can be versatile and worn in various settings. Which is natural, but sometimes I wish I could wear one of these fun, beautiful, bold shoes out and about! Though I think I’d look a little out of place walking around the suburbs, but maybe for a night out or a fancy event! For this style challenge I chose these fun green heels with feathers and a gold heel. These Prada statement heels carry a…

    Mini Bag Trend

      So Cute: Mini Bags by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring mini handbags     Mini bags are becoming more popular and this is just my style. I love the look of big bags but honestly I never carry that much stuff with me so my bag ends up being so empty. The few items I put in my purse just end up swimming in a large bag and that’s just for a regular purse. When you’re dressing up for an event or fancy outing you really don’t want to carry a large purse. The key is to find a bag or clutch that is small enough to not get in the way…
