{ Dare To Wear } Yellow + Gray

H&M style

I’ve been going gaga for gray jeans lately. They’re just so neutral and give a slightly edgier vibe than the traditional blue. Gray goes great with pretty much anything, but especially yellow. This mustard-yellow top, well it’s not a top at all, but a dress that you may recognize from these past blog posts (1, 2). chic style blogger

{ Style Tips }

1. Wear your dress over jeans. Now, this doesn’t work with every dress out there, but it’s a great way to get extra wear out of those styles that may feel a little short or revealing.

2. Don’t be afraid to layer your statement necklaces. I like to wear my vintage “mini statements” (as I like to call them) with a bolder piece to create a unique look.

3. A little chilly? Toss on a chambray shirt. It’s a light layer that you can style to suit your mood. I opted for a little collar pop to showcase the necklaces and rolled the sleeves so that the lovely sleeves below were exposed.

4. Make it your own. You may notice that each of my feet are rocking different nail colors. It’s no mistake. I couldn’t pick one color so opted for two hues. This may not be a look I’d wear everywhere, but I sure do LOVE it with these shoes.

{ Dare To Wear } Going Gaga For Gray Jeans

Jessie Holeva style expert

And now, time for spring! It may be a bit premature to type that, but I don’t care, just like how I didn’t care that I started this blog post with a conjunction. Today is crazy gorgeous outside and so was the day we opted to shoot these pics. I am so ready for this next season (mentally, not wardrobe-wise just yet). Going outside in beautiful weather is seriously magical. It feels like my soul is breathing in new life and I’m so ready to be out and about more, enjoy nature, catch up with friends (I tend to hibernate when cold) and just live.

As beautiful as it is out, it’s not quite as warm as I’m ready for, so jackets and booties are current go-to pieces. I treated myself to some new jeans for my birthday and thought gray would be a cool addition to my collection. I love this wash because it’s neutral and cool, but in a very subtle way, which makes it even more amazing. These will certainly be on me a whole lot this spring so stay tuned for two more blog posts (at least!) restyling these babes (is it weird that I act like my clothes have personalities?!)

1. Go for the gray. It’s a cool neutral that can be dressed up or down.

2. Layer necklaces with a lace-up top. It’s simple but looks like you put in some effort.

3. Try a mixed-media piece for extra visual interest.

{ Dare To Wear } The Bolder, The Better

statement jewelry style tips

Dear life, you are meant to be lived so I am dressing for the occasion! I wore this dress, necklace, and earrings for a recent TV segment on Fox29 (see: the look on Instagram). I threw it together early that morning, right after moving, so all my stuff was/is a bit in disarray. To my surprise, this bold look got lots of love. Note to self: don’t be afraid to be different. That’s what makes us all unique. Dress like the special being that you are!

So here it is, and it’s the very first look shot at the aforementioned new place. Continue reading…

{ Dare To Wear } How To Layer Up Your Little Black Dress

Jessie Holeva lifestyle blog

 Is it me or do these pics have a slight Halloween vibe? Maybe it’s the location (the church at my alma mater, Cabrini College), or the the dark lip + dark hair + dark clothing. I tend to wear lighter colors close to my hair to brighten up my look, which is maybe why I naturally finished the outfit with an olive topper. Is there a color you avoid close to your face? For me, it’s usually black, since by hair is so dark and it’s just a whole lot of darkness. Continue reading…

{ Photo Diary } Almay’s #SimplyAmerican Tour Bus Visits Philly

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset

This Independence Day I hopped on the Almay #SimplyAmerican tour bus for some pampering on the Parkway. I love my city. Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway turned into one of the biggest Fourth of July celebrations in the country called Wawa Welcome America. The all-day extravaganza, complete with music and food, was a pretty fun way to spend the holiday despite the weather being less than stellar. Thanks to Almay I was able to take refuge from the rain and get a little makeover. Continue reading…

{ Dare To Wear } Green, White + Print All Over

Fashion Stylist Jessie Holeva

Working on blog posts sure does help me in the outfit department. This Dare To Wear blog series challenges me to remix my style pairings and create more looks. The result, more outfit ideas at my fingertips for those busy days that leave little time for picking the perfect ensemble.

You may notice that this jumpsuit is Lilly Pulitzer for Target. I stumbled upon it a few weeks after the collection old out when I was visiting Target for organic chips and salsa (the pineapple salsa is SO good!). The jumpsuit fit and came home with me. Since then I’ve worn it to a luncheon, TV segment, and hanging around. I think with the vest is how I like it best. Continue reading…

{ Shopped It } My First Time At The Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale

lilly pulitzer sample sale 2

I’ve been stocking up on summer styles lately and have been slaying it in snagging serious sales. First my visit to Shoe Carnival (giving away FREE SHOES tomorrow, stay tuned!!) and then my trip to the Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale. I was fortunate enough to score a pass to the friends & family day, which is the day before it opens to the public. That meant less crazy lines, more items to choose from (nothing was picked through yet!), and an additional 25% off! I paid more for my Lilly for Target jumpsuit than what I paid for most of the pieces I purchased. Continue reading…
