Festival Ready

Raise your hand if you knew "Festival Season" is now a thing. Thanks to Instagram and Snapchat, I am very aware. Who didn't love looking at Snaps of various OOTF (Outfits of the Festival) at Coachella? So many prints and crop tops, so little time. When Teva reached out to me to incorporate a pair of sandals into my festival look, I gladly accepted the challenge. If you've been here for a while, you know how much of a high heel girl I am. Initially, I wanted to go crazy with my prints (like we all know I can), but decided on a simple look that would let my accessories shine.

Vivrant Thing

April is winding down and what a month it's been. I was feeling a certain type of way and decided that a "pretty day" was in order. Nothing like one of my favorite dresses and a new lippie from Colourpop (The Rabbit) to lift my spirits.

Springing Around

Hey Y'all! Just wanted to quickly share with you this matching set I grabbed last week from Charlotte Russe. I had to make a return and I had reached the date where I could either receive store credit or make an exchange. This cute set caught my eye immediately; it's super light and breezy.

Happy April! We made it y'all! Spring is officially here and I can (hopefully) put away my sweaters and tights. If you've been around for a while, you know that spring/summer are my favorite seasons. I am a true So Cal girl!
I love discovering new brands, especially when the fit and quality are perfect. I randomly stumbled across Nadia Tarr's site a couple of years ago. I have about 4 pieces, all of which I love. The line is similar to Rachel Pally, as they both use great quality spandex/jersey. Nadia Tarr pieces are usually a double knit, which provides for great hold. I found this jumpsuit via Hautelook and was super excited how great it fit and the fact that I haven't seen it on any of my fellow plus beauties. I gotta keep it real and say that I get tired of seeing the same looks on everyone over a size 12. It's fun for a minute and then I'm like…….

Hello All! Spring is near and although I live in Southern California, a winter getaway is always needed. I took a quick trip to Freeport, Bahamas and cannot wait for consecutive warm weather. It was the recharge I needed: beautiful weather and beaches, relaxation, and great company. This trip made me realize that I need to start a petition for social workers to have a spring break! Why should teachers have all the fun?

Ugly in Love

Happy New Year! Since I haven't seen y'all since 2015, new year wishes are a must. I hope 2016 is treating you well so far. January was pretty busy and I created some new opportunities in both my blog and personal lives. I am so looking forward to what's next!

Towards the end of 2015, I wasn't feeling anything in stores/online, so I shopped my closet. I love my "Bill Cosby" sweater dress; I found it on one of my thrifting jaunts a couple of years ago. I had totally forgotten about it and was thrilled when I pulled it out of one of my many storage bins. I paired it with Ms. Danke, my new favorite accessory. My head is huge and I have the hardest time finding hats, so I was thrilled when it arrived, it fit, AND the color is outstanding. I purchased in a XL and it fits perfectly. Speaking of perfect, I found these amazing boots while in Houston over the holiday. They are from Lane Bryant (no longer available) and are ridiculously comfortable. They are real suede and I absolutely love how they zip all the way up the leg. I love how this look incorporates a few of my favorites: Over the knee boots, color, and vintage. I say this all the time, but cannot stress it enough…when you love what you're wearing, that confidence just shines through. I would rather have 3 pieces that I love in my closet, than 33 of items I'm just "in like" with.

Sweater dress: Thrifted, but here are a few similar alternatives: Here or here or here (If you hate going to actual thrift stores, eBay is a great solution. You will pay more, but convenience costs)

I would love to hear what piece you have in your closet that you're in love with! Comment below or tag me at IvoryJinelle on IG. I love seeing what makes others happy.

Love and Light

One may look at this outfit as an overload of sequin and shine, but what's life without a bit of adventure? Tacky and gaudy may come to mind and that is perfectly fine...wear what you love and other's opinions won't matter. I love these Cult of California (no longer in business) pants and really don't wear them as much as I would like. I could've easily paired them with a simple top, but felt like being a bit more daring. Vintage sequin top it is!
If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen both of these pieces before. I decided to pair them together and loved how it turned out.
Not sure if I'll have a chance to post before Christmas, so if I don't, I will see y'all in the New Year! Happy Holidays!

Torrid Insider Collection

Happy Monday! I hope all is well and you have maintained your sanity through all the holiday madness. If you haven't heard, Torrid has a new collection: Torrid Insider and they were kind enough to send me a couple of pieces. I love this skirt and the fact that the fringe doesn't look cheap (I'm sure we all know what I'm talking about). The sizing is spot on, so order your actual size when shopping the collection. I also received this blazer and I love the boyfriend length on it. I love when brands add capsule collections; it can be quite refreshing.

Shine on

I purchased this matching set during the closet sale back in August from Gabifresh. I loved the colors and knew with just a simple knot, it could go from office to happy hour. Add a pop of color/texture with a pair of suede booties and you're good to go.
