Welcome to Style Sessions! I’ve been seriously loving the statement pants trend that’s been around the last few years. Last season it was all about the colored jean and while they are still totally fabulous, there’s a new scene stealer in town… the printed pant (I adore these and these). I was somewhat hesitant at first, after all could a loud print really be figure flattering? If you choose the right one, absolutely. My tip is to look for pants that include darker hues, they will likely be more forgiving than lighter tones. I adore a mix of blue or navy, black and white – it will mean you can style it with so many colors!

Must Have: Printed Pants and A Leather Jacket

So in addition to my current love of printed pants, I wanted to share with you my favorite, all time most adored wardrobe piece… this Vince Leather Jacket. I lusted after it for so long and the tipping point was when I saw it styled so gorgeously on Cupcakes & Cashmere. I saved up and had to have it. I am such a believer that you don’t need to spend much on ‘trend’ pieces, but when it comes to timeless wardrobe staples, investing in a quality piece with a great cut is paramount. For me, that is certainly a leather jacket

Adding a couple of high quality pieces to your closet and mixing them with less expensive trend items is the way to go! When you have gorgeous staples, it will allow your style to transcend season after season and when you pair them with inexpensive items, you’ll still look like a million bucks. My other closet staple is this Marc by Marc Jacobs Handbag (yes, it’s here every week – it just works with everything!). Tell me… what’s on your splurge wish list right now? Here’s a peek into mine.

Today, you’ll also notice that I couldn’t decide between red patent or black patent heels with this look – so I wanted to show you both! Which color do you like best?

Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m thrilled to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, the lovely Joy from All Things White!

Isn’t it a perfect casual look?!

STYLE Q&A WITH JOY

What is your go-to look?  A chiffon button up and a great pair of dark jeans!

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  This is an easy one! I am loving statement necklaces. I love how it instantly transforms any outfit!

What inspired you to start your blog?  YouTube actually, I loved the beauty and fashion community on YouTube. I really wanted to make my own channel, however I did not have the courage to do so. I decided to start blogging first and perhaps later on get enough confidence to start a channel. But in the midst of it all, I discovered the blogging community and instantly fell so in love! I hardly ever watch YouTube videos now.

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without:  Eye liner, mascara and concealer!

How would you describe your style?  My style is simple and chic, with just a little dash of over the top!
