Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! This past week felt like spring finally arrived in New York… so out came the skirts! It’s still a little chilly, so I love this leather pencil skirt (it comes in the most beautiful blush pink for spring!) and mixing it with my favorite chambray shirt and my new Clare V leopard clutch made for the perfect early spring outfit.

Oh and I haaave to tell you about my nail polish! I picked up the new Miracle Gel by Sally Hansen to try and it is amazing… it is a gel polish, but you don’t need a lamp. I chose this coral color called ‘Redgy’ and you just use this top coat with it. Voila! It lasts perfectly for at least 7 days and stays so shiny. I also got this white color called ‘Get Mod’, I can highly recommend these new polishes!

What’s the weather like where you live right now? Are you already in full spring mode?

Meet Our Head Stylist..

I’m thrilled to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, Jordan from Petite Modern!

STYLE Q&A WITH JORDAN:

How would you describe your style? I am an interior designer by day, and blogger of petiteMODERN by night. While my job and my blog are two completely different things, I like to think that my style is an excellent example of the Interior Spaces I create. I love bold colors, simple lines / graphics and clothes with great form or architectural elements. I would say that I am mostly drawn to pieces that are somewhat unexpected, or that have a unique construction. Neutrals are my best friend, but I love a good element of surprise!

Which fashion trend are you currently loving? Stripes and a good lip color! It’s classic, but it is such an essential look for me. It works well with a silky stripe top and trousers with a nude lipstick for the office, with Jeans, a striped cotton Tee and a soft pink or coral balm on the weekends, or with an amazing skirt and bold fuchsia lip for date night! You really can’t go wrong!

What inspired you to start your blog? While I was in college, I found blogging was a great way to show others what I was working on without spending every minute of my free time on the phone/staying in touch. Now that I have graduated and have a really great career, I wanted to continue to share what exciting things I am trying, loving and wearing! My family is really supportive and they have loved following along, keeping up to date and I think their excitement is really inspiring, especially when I am homesick! I also love how many amazing women I have met because of blogging, not just in my city, but all over the world!

Name a couple beauty products you couldn’t live without: I can’t go a day without my Kiehl’s BB Cream! It contains SPF, anti aging properties and has a nice subtle coverage and dewy finish. I also love sporting a little cat eye thanks to my Tarte Felt Tip Eyeliner, that’s a must on must weekdays! I also swear by a great bit of petroleum based lip balm and a good hand/foot creme before bed every night. I wake up and my skin feels super hydrated!

What is your best beauty trick? I have these little gel packs that you freeze and apply to your under-eye area after a long night or a good cry! I start with those and follow it up with Kiehl’s Eye Depuffer which gives off a cooling effect and then follow by repeatedly tapping the area under my eyes gently with my fingertips. This really wakes up my face and my under eye bags are gone in minutes!

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? I was born and raised in Florida, but growing up there, the novelty of going to the beach every day wears off fast. Now that I have moved to Virginia, I am always dying to be home in the 80 degree weather, with my toes in the sand. If I had to get exotic, I would say the beaches of Santorini or traveling through Greece would be stunning! White buildings on the mountainside, with a view of the bluest water… I’ll take it!

Tell us something not many people know about you? I wear glasses! Even prescription sunglasses! My eyesight isn’t horrible, but It isn’t perfect either! I love using my frames as an accessory to polish off any outfit, but I am in the market for a new pair and can’t wait to find the one!
