    Choker Dress

      Choker Dress by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring ankle wrap sandals Choker dresses are so in style right now and have been for a while. I have one choker dress, which I shared on here over a year ago. But it’s such a cool and easy style that I’d love to invest in more. For the choker dress challenge on Polyvore, I chose this long sleeve plant print dress, espadrilles, and a tan clutch with rope closure. The dress is perfect for spring/summer and I love the style of these espadrilles. The way that the shoes cover more of your foot reminds me of mules. Finally, the roped clutch is so unique…

    On Trend: Two-Tone Dresses

      On Trend: Two-Tone Dresses by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring a long blue dress It may not always feel like it, but it is officially spring. And what says spring more than pastels? Two-toned dresses are on trend and since it is spring I wanted to pick a pastel colored dress for this Polyvore challenge. I went with this turquoise and white bodycon dress. The white triangle design at the waist helps to give the dress shape and gives the illusion of a more hourglass figure. I chose a flower statement necklace to accessorize. The necklace is so pretty and perfect for spring! Lastly, how unique and cool are these heels?! I…

    Tricky Trend: Daytime Pajamas

      Tricky Trend: Daytime Pajamas by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring a moschino purse One of the trends this year has been slip dresses, but more specifically, the “pajama” look. When I say pajamas, I don’t mean real pajama pants and oversized t-shirts. I’m talking about the silky, lacy, satin-y tops and dresses. When I saw the challenge was “Daytime Pajamas” on Polyvore, I came up with 2 looks for this trend which are definitely not “daytime” looks but more for going out at night. I think the daytime label is mostly just used because these pieces are worn out of the house and not actually as pajamas. ***** 1) The first is an…

    Hot Trend: Mirrored Sunglasses

    Hot Trend: Mirrored Sunglasses by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring aviator sunglasses Sunglasses are needed all year round, but are serious must-haves in the summer. This year a hot trend is mirrored sunglasses. I don’t own a pair of these mirrored sunnies myself, but I love the look of them, especially the colored ones. They give off this calm, cool, look — definitely gives off more of a California vibe than a New York City vibe in my opinion. What are your thoughts on mirrored sunglasses?

    Tricky Trend: Sleeveless Coat

    Tricky Trend: Sleeveless Coat by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring ASOS Sleeveless coats/trenches are a trend that I’d love to try out on my own. They look so chic and a piece that can easily dress up a normal, average outfit. I love the look of the long sleeveless coats, but I’m short so I think my best bet would be to go for the shorter ones — the ones that hit at mid thigh. Any shorter than that and it’d be a vest! The piece would give the appearance of a more slender, taller me. What do you think of this trend?

    Tricky Trend: Sheer Blouse

    Tricky Trend: Sheer Blouse by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring a white silk top I love when Polyvore has these challenges for “tricky trends” because it’s either something I personally don’t find tricky and have some ideas for already or it makes me really think about what I would do if I wanted to wear said trend. ***** The sheer blouse trend is something I wear, however, I always wear a tank top or camisole underneath. Many work blouses tend to be of the sheerer variety. But, something I see a lot of in street styles, is a sheer blouse with just a colored bra underneath. Obviously, that’s not something I can get…
