Style Sessions: Weekly Fashion Link Up

Welcome to Style Sessions! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. Chris and I spent a lovely few days relaxing and visiting our families. I have to say, there’s just something very wonderful about being back in your family home… I immediately felt so relaxed and happy – it was fantastic.

Before we start today, I wanted to mention the huge giveaway brought to you by the delightful advertisers of Style Elixir. Would you like to win over $300 in prizes? Think J.Crew, Sephora, Target, Starbucks, Ulta, LOFT, Amazon and more! Simply enter here.

I’m so thrilled you’re joining me today for another Style Sessions. If you’re new here, I believe we all have an inner Rachel Zoe and the opportunity to share this shouldn’t just be reserved for those who have a show on Bravo. Whether Vogue is your religion and WhoWhatWear your bible, or you’re just a girl who likes to be confident and feel good in how you dress, this link-up is for you!

Join us every Tuesday from 5am PST and share anything outfit or fashion related. If you coerced your spouse into doing a fashion shoot, took a couple of ‘selfies’, or are on a budget and would like to create a ‘virtual outfit’, we’d love to see it!

Feature As Head Stylist!

Each week, I will select one person to be featured as Head Stylist in the next Style Sessions. This is a fantastic opportunity to really showcase your style to everyone!

Be Inspired!
My vision is for this to be like one giant girls night in (or a shopaholics anonymous meeting), where we share our own unique style, favorite outfits, latest fashion loves and hopefully be inspired with new ideas!

To join, I ask that you please follow my blog (via Bloglovin’EmailTwitterGFC or Facebook) and because it’s good etiquette, simply provide a link to this in your post or add the button to your blog. And the more we get the word out there, the more people will see your gorgeous outfit each week – so spread the news about Style Sessions and tweet!

A Bright and Happy Weekend

Today, I thought I’d share an outfit from over the Easter weekend. As mentioned, few things make me happier than being with my family – so spending a few days with them was amazing! It instantly puts a smile on my face and my outfits surely follow suit. Bright, happy and relaxed was the order of Easter Sunday…

Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m so excited to introduce you to Jenny from Crazy Style Love.  
She’s quickly become one of my fashion favorites… but it’s not just the brilliant style that endears her to me, Jenny’s also one of the sweetest bloggers you’ll meet!

As soon as I discovered her blog, I was hooked! Jenny features fabulous style and as you can see, not only has a stunning wardrobe of clothes, but also gorgeous accessories. This bright fuchsia coat and luxe leopard print caught my eye last week and immediately, I knew I had to share Jenny’s style with you…

What is your favorite wardrobe piece?  My favorite piece always seems to change, but I would say that every woman should have a classic, designer purse in her wardrobe. I just purchased a cobalt blue Chanel flap bag that I’m madly in love with. I could be wearing an outfit that costs $10 from head to toe, but when I throw on a beautiful designer bag with it, I feel like a million bucks!

Describe your style in three words:  Feminine, Colorful, Classic.

Best piece of fashion advice?  Never leave the house without first looking in a full length mirror and checking yourself out from behind! So many embarrassing fashion mishaps can be avoided by doing this!

Such fabulous advice – and such gorgeous style! To discover more about Jenny, visit Crazy Style Love or go say hello on Twitter!
