New jacket, c/o Queens Wardrobe, top - sisters, leggings - Forever 21, shoes - Charlotte Russe, ring - Aldo, bag - Aldo, nails OPI DS Magic, necklace - Mom, cuff - Mom


What I love about small shoulder pads is the structure they can give a jacket. (Don't recommend it for broad shoulders though!) You really have to focus on slimming the lower body down though which is why it looks best paired with leggings, skinny jeans/trousers or a tight (pencil) skirt. Putting your hair up can also really compliment the look.

These shoes are from Charlotte Russe, can you believe it? My sister owns them... she actually got them for around $20. They have a really nice selection for such low prices! Really, I am thinking of buying at least 4 new pairs from them right now. Check out these. Oh and not to mention, a lot of their shoes are buy 1 get 1 for $15.50!

Unfortunately, these photos, and the ones you will be seeing in the next few posts, were taken before our current thunderstorm hit the bay. It's dreary, cold and rainy outside. Guess it had to happen eventually! The only thing I like about rain (besides the fact that the farms and water reservoirs need it, and the air gets clean) is how cozy my bed feels at night

  3. Oooh, you struck the fine line between patriotic and nautical! Haha, I can't decide which look it is. But whichever, you look gorgeous! I love the blazer and your blue nails <3
    And seriously? $20 for those heels? Wow, gonna have to check them out! Haha
    And aw, you're having depressing weather too? -_-
    Something about rainy days that make pjs and beds extra warm and snuggly though huh? I think I'm going to make some hot chocolate now :)
    Gorgeous photos and post as always Jess!

  5. I'm really dreading this weather in the bay right now and the weather man said that it will be raining all week! What great spring weather we're having right? lol I really like your outfit! I love shoulder pads for the same reasons you do. It also gives an illusion of a smaller waist as well! Thanks for the recommendation on the shoes, I will check out Charlotte Russe soon! :)

  10. Beautiful Jess!! I love this nautical theme! That jacket is awesome! I didn't even really notice the shoulder part until you spoke about them! I really like the structure of the jacket, specifically at the bottom. It reminds me of a (real) bat wing.

    The shoes are so cute! I can't only wear pumps because else it will hurt my feet ;( So I might have to check out this sale...!!! I don't usually shop at CR because there isn't one at the malls near me, just the one that's ~30min away.

    I also love sleeping with the rain, who doesn't?!?! My fav is waking up with light rain, drizzle, and a bit of light just peering in. Just lounging in bed with my dogs, lol :)

  13. You look great. I must say thin horizontal lines top is definitely recommended for skinny people like you. You still look so slim =) I like your red heels too! I've got 1 which is pretty similar from Steve Madden.

    I tend to agree with you on the bed part when it comes to rainy days =P

  46. I think both the nautical and patriotic terms fit well within this outfit so yes! Can most definately say both =) Agree with your thoughts on the shoulder pads too, structured garments can make anyones figure look amazing and hah yes, will most probably be asking you advice on the camera thing in the future :P
