Welcome to the Style Sessions Link Up, I’m delighted to have you here for another week of fashion! I think it’s so fabulous to have over 200 of you join me here each Tuesday, what amazing style inspiration and an incredible community we have.

I’ve also been thrilled to see so many of you signing up to join me for the Design A Life You Love – Blogging For A Living course and mentorship program! I’ve provided professional coaching to executives and business owners in “real life” for a number of years and over the last year brought this same approach to working with some fantastic bloggers for one-on-one consultations. I’m really excited to do that on a wider scale via this program – sharing strategic advice, tips, tricks and all the things I wish I knew in my early days of blogging! I completed my Masters specializing in marketing and strategic advertising, so the chance to bring this strategy and knowledge to help you also grow your blog is something I’m really passionate about. If you’d like to join us, you’ll find more details and tickets here.

Blogging for a living how to blog course

As you probably know I’m all about classic style that transcends seasons, but that doesn’t equal boring! It’s about wearing colors and prints that are eternally chic – and when it comes to this, few things top a leopard scarf and burgundy coat! The ultimate fashion juxtaposition… they make a statement, but are considered a wardrobe neutral. You know you’re onto a good thing when your cold weather go-to remains the same year after year and is still in style…

STYLE Q&A WITH JESSICA:

How would you describe your style? I would consider my style to be classic, girly and chic. I love color! With every outfit, I try to incorporate color. There was a point in my life where I just wore neutrals, but decided to change that a couple years ago as a New Years resolution. I guess one of my “signature” styles is that I love mixing prints together. Sometimes it gets a little too crazy, but I think it makes the outfit interesting and fun!

Which fashion trend are you currently loving? PLAID!!! I have been swooning over any type of buffalo plaid this season. Anytime I see red buffalo plaid, I become all starry eyed! My Christmas card with my husband and I is filled with plaid from my dress, my dog Django’s jacket and envelop liner!

What inspired you to start your blog? My co-workers just always pushed me to start one. I moved in 2013 from my home Utah to Arizona and I needed a creative outlet to occupy my time while being in a new state. Plus, it’s fun to document my daily outfit inspiration. While I blog about fashion, I also discuss fitness and nutrition. As a fitness instructor I promote better health and love that I can do that with a broader audience using my blog.

Name a couple beauty products you couldn’t live without: Nano Pureology Shampoo and Conditioner. I swear by this! I honestly can’t live without it! Ole Henriksen Vitamin Plus Moisturizer. This has been the only moisturizer I’ve found that won’t make me break out, it’s light weight enough to sit under foundation and keeps my face hydrated without the thick oily feel. Buxom Lip Gloss – it’s simply AMAZING!

What is your best beauty trick? Whenever I do winged eyeliner, I put tape at the ends of my eyes to keep my lines straight. Works every time!

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? Kauai or Thailand.

Tell us something not many people know about you? I have a fake front tooth that I have broken about six times.
