{ Dare To Wear } 3 Tips To Dressing Warm

This is my first outfit post of 2016. Whoa. Does it count if the pics were taken last year? Of course it does!

A flannel shirt is a serious Jessie staple. Wear open, buttoned, tied, tucked, or even around your waist if you get a little hot. I usually fall in love with one, wear it to death, then get a new one and keep the oldie as my bumming-around flannel.

Since getting this one I’ve styled it for the blog and have worn it a ton in real life, hence why I bought it. Flannel can get a little fancy if you’re creative, and I love it for casual dressing. For this look I went for a more outdoorsy vibe, with thin layers to keep me warm without looking puffy. Hope you like and that you are staying warm! Style tips + more pics await those who scroll.  ;)

{ Style Tips }

1. Add warmth without bulk by wearing thin layers, like a flannel top over a tee shirt, and then topping it with a quilted vest. This vest is light and pretty much made for layering.

2. Oversized scarves = extra warmth. I hate a cold neck and a scarf really does keep in the heat. If you get hot take it off or wrap it looser.

3. Keep toes toasty with weather-proof boots. This practical tip is obvious and yet I see so many women wearing open-toe booties and super high-heeled styles, which is totally cool but not for being out and about (especially when it’s icy!) and staying warm in style. This year I made sure to get some practical boots and I must say that it’s a decision I’ve been extra happy with. Me cold = me miserable.

{ Dare To Wear } Vested Summer Style

Well hello August. This new month totally snuck up on me. Before we move on to new outfit post for this new month let’s recap July’s featured fashions. Sound good? Cool!

Like past Dare To Wear posts, items were worn on repeat (because don’t we all rewear our stuff?), but unlike other months, there were actually three pieces that made it into all three looks.

Why? Because it felt right. Do what feels right. Right? Right!

Okay, so can you spot which three pieces were in all three looks? Scroll on. Full blog posts with outfit details and style tips are linked below. Hope you like. If you’re inspired pin these pics to and use it as future outfit inspiration.

Ever wonder what a blogger totes around?  Chaucee, the creative behind popular Philly blog Streets and Stripes gave us a peek inside her mobile office.

1. iPhone – The Blogger’s Dream Phone. This guy doesn’t go without me anywhere. It’s how I check my email, play Pandora, check Twitter, and waste time on Instagram. #MacForLife!
2. On Writing Well - I always bring reading material because I never know when I’ll get a minute to myself! Currently reading this book on improving writing skills.
3. Mini Moleskin – For all those random ideas that come at the most inconvenient times!
4. Wallet – This bad boy as a gift from a friend. It has so many inside organizers that I’ll never go back to a smaller wallet! Also is great in self-defense.
5. Lip Gloss – I always keep either chapstick or lipgloss on hand at all times, especially during the winter! I love soft pink shades for a natural look.
6. Reading Glasses – Well….for the book!
7. My Camera – Okay, well that’s not actually my camera in the picture (as I was using it to take the photo) but I always keep my handy Canon 7d on hand to document life in the city!

Beyonce’s Blog & 5 Celebs We Wish Had Fashion Blogs

By Kelsey

Wouldn’t it be nice if some of Hollywood’s best dressed lent their expertise to us on a daily basis? In a dream world I would open an iPhone app every morning to fashion blogs personally written by some of my favorite dressed celebrities. Beyonce’s blog wets our palette for celeb style, and here are five more we’d like to see more fashion from.

From edgy , classic , everyday and crazy I’d pick my mood and read my blog. Yes, in a perfect world everyday would be a fashion show and it would be easy to know what exactly was going through the mind of my favorite celeb when they stepped out of the house. Since this is probably a far off dream, let’s pretend! Here are some of my dream bloggers.

1.Lauren ConradLauren Conrad is one of my favorite designers. Making fashion look effortless I absolutely love her desire for floral print. She gives  off a old fashion glam look while still looking up to date and lovely. She may have a beauty blog ( and blog on, but I want to see her style daily… and maybe copy it.

2. Katy PerryFeeling crazy? Then rock the blue hair and dramatic lashes! Katy Perry teaches us that you’re never too old to have fun with fashion. You can make a statement every day; don’t be afraid to take a risk.

3. Blake Lively is always on top of new trends. As fashionable as the character she plays on tv, she looks chic in every day clothes and in formal wear.  Known for a sleek and stylish look Blake always rocks top designer looks. Get her look! Continue Reading

Our New Favorite Designer Collaboration: Neiman Marcus + Target Holiday Collection

By Kelsey

I love Neiman Marcus with all of my heart. Walking into the store is a total experience; the sales people are over the top friendly, you get to see what top designers have been up too, and the atmosphere is delightful. Now, don’t get me wrong, I only LOOK, when I step foot into Neiman Marcus, the only thing I can afford is a salad from their café. Obviously, I was ecstatic when I found out that Neiman Marcus was teaming up with Target.


Target, known for their low prices, leaves it nearly impossible to leave the store without purchasing something. Neiman Marcus and Target launched their collaborated collection Saturday at 8am; ( also on some devoted shoppers were in line since 6:30 am, and you would be too if you could get your hands Tory Burch, Derek Lam, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar de la Renta for Target prices!

Celebrity, Fashion, why we love

Why We Love: Galoshes

By Brooke

It goes without question that Sandy has given us the perfect reason to scope out galoshes. Out of all rain wear, galoshes are the most practical item to add to your wardrobe, plus they’re most fun to dress up! I’m still haunted with the thought of the hideous bulky yellow rain boots my parents used to make me wear as a child. But celebs like Hilary Duff have been spotted casually rocking this look reviving hope to this trend! Hilary has made Hunter boots a staple item in her wardrobe, and we can see why. When you search images for celebs in rain boots, all that pops up are pictures of Hunter boots, a lot of pictures. Although these boots tend to run on the more expensive side (a Trend-Hungry approved splurge), there are a lot of ways to get this look without emptying your bank account. Feeling a little skeptical about investing in a pair of galoshes? Here are a few reasons that put our savvy-saving minds at ease …



1. Sandy. I think that should say enough.

2. Showoff your style. These babies come in all sorts of fun patterns and prints. They can liven up the most simple outfit while serving their purpose. Continue Reading

Four Style Lessons From Michelle Obama

By Kelsey

Welcome The First Lady of fashion, Michelle Obama. Move aside pant suits and drab cookie-cutter ensembles, we can all learn a little something from the last four stylish years of sophistication and fun fashion that hit the white house. Regardless of your political views, no one can deny the impeccable taste of our current First Lady. Since Michelle has taken on the role as First Lady, her fashion choices have been closely scrutinized. Michelle has been more open and unique with her clothing selections, indulging fun prints, bold colors and form-fitting dresses, extremely different from the monotonous fashion of First Ladies of  years past. Remeber when she posed in a sleeveless dress and everyone was shocked – so nuts! What we admire about Michelle’s style is that she knows how to add a fashion-forward twist to the usual boring business attire, giving everyone hope that fashion doesn’t die at the work place. Whether it’s a presidential debate or a day with the kids, Michelle looks effortless in her apparel. Here are four style lessons we can take from our fabulous First Lady.
