Superbowl Sweats

by Jessica Sturdy on February 4, 2014

I kept it casual and a little bit sporty for the Super Bowl this year. Since I could have cared less about who won (I mean, I was rooting for the Broncos purely because they have the same colors as the Bears), I stayed neutral — in black. In retrospect, wearing my pajama jeans was probably a bit too man-repelling for the occasion. Live and learn, I suppose. What did you wear for the game?

Grammys 2014: Forgot the Fashion

by Jessica Sturdy on January 30, 2014

Other than a few absolutely amazing performances — Beyonce & Jay-Z (we all know how I feel about it by now), Kendrick Lamar & Imagine Dragons, Mackelmore, and John Legend — I was really underwhelmed by the Grammys this year. The rest of the show kind of bored me… I mean, did they just forget the fashion this year? E! chose the 5 Best Dressed and I have to agree with their picks… These 5 ladies were my favorites, too.

Even if majority of the dresses were a snooze-fest this year, it’s still possible to draw some inspiration from a few of the frocks.

Katy Perry’s whimsical Valentino dress reminded me that I need to pull my ballerina skirt out again. Fashion Week, perhaps? I’m thinking of pairing it with something in the same blush color family for a head-to-toe look like Katy’s.

Subtle Sparkle

by Jessica Sturdy on January 27, 2014

Oh man, you guys. What a weekend! Hallie and I over-served ourselves, per usual. Or actually the bartender at Narcissa over-served us. #WineonWineonWine Sunday was spent brunching, recovering, and crying from laughing at Saturday night’s antics. And then judging live-tweeting the Grammys with Glam. Beyonce and Jay-Z? I died. May or may not have wet dreams about that one. #NotSorry

On a slightly more appropriate note, I’m happy to be ditching my layers and the brutally cold temps for the week! Heading to LA this morning… Follow along on Instagram!

Cap & Camo

by Jessica Sturdy on January 24, 2014

Another day, another baseball cap. Maybe I’m going through a late tomboy phase or something, but I can’t seem to get enough of any of my baseball hats lately. In my girliness’ defense, I did wear this outfit for a more sporty occasion — to the Knicks game last week. (When they actually won.)

All-American

by Jessica Sturdy on January 23, 2014

Kind of freaking out about this post today, guys. Sochi 2014 is just around the corner and as you may have seen on The Today Show this morning, Ralph Lauren unveiled the official Team USA Opening Ceremony Parade uniforms.

Getting Lippy

by Jessica Sturdy on January 22, 2014

Statement Necklace, Polka Dots, Cheetah Lipstick Print Skirt, Moto Booties

Happy Hump Day! I actually wore this outfit twice over the holidays… Once to a little get together with friends (shown here) and again to the PRIV launch party at the Capwell + Co Pop-Up shop. The second time, I switched out the jewelry I’m wearing in these photos for a neon/hematite Capwell + Co. necklace, this ring, and these bracelets. I liked the second time around much better… Photo here.

Also — Call me crazy, but I could have sworn that this skirt was a lip/stick print. Upon googling to find out where you could still buy it, it’s apparently a colorful animal print. Dying to know what it looks like to you…

Winter White

by Jessica Sturdy on January 17, 2014

Award season is here and I couldn’t be happier! For the Golden Globes this past Sunday, a few New York bloggers got together in a suite at The Lexington to watch the show see the dresses. We sipped Moet, ate way too much pizza, and not-so-silently gasped (both in horror and awe) at all of the red carpet fashion. Such a fun night! My favorite looks from the Golden Globes were Margot Robbie, Olivia Wilde, and Kate Beckinsale.

Feeling inspired by Margot Robbie’s simple white Gucci dress with crystal and emerald embellishments (and her emerald Louboutins!), I set out to create a similar look for work this week.

Sweat Sesh

by Jessica Sturdy on January 15, 2014

I truly cannot believe that I’m letting you guys see what I look like post-Soul Cycle, but here it is. No makeup, no shower, sweaty hair (hence the hat), and sweaty clothes, too. How pleasant. :)

Over the last year, working out has become my “me time.” And as we’re heading into 2014 (How the f*ck is it mid-January already?), I’ve been putting an even bigger emphasis on staying fit and eating healthy. I know I’m definitely drinking the Soul Cycle kool-aid, but hear me out — Soul Cycle has honestly changed my entire thought process about working out. I now view my workouts, whether they are at Soul Cycle or not, as the only part of my day where I can zone out, listen to music, and truly unplug. And I don’t feel guilty about it either. It’s a win, win.

I’ve said it so many times, but cute workout clothes and shoes can be great for that little extra push of motivation. Old Navy has a bunch of cute gear on sale right now, too! My other little gym secret? Take down your ponytail after your workout and toss on a hat and sunglasses. If your hair is sopping wet, blast your roots with the blowdryer for a minute. Errands, brunch, you name it… It’s all possible if you have a hat on. Trust me, I did it both days last weekend. ;)

Creature of Habit

by Jessica Sturdy on January 15, 2014

When it comes to my beauty routine, I tend to get stuck in my ways. Sure, I love trying out new products, but once I find something that I love, I’m loyal for the long haul. My skincare, makeup, and hair routines have been the same for quite some time and they are simple, too. I know the brands that I like, the shades that I prefer, the formulas that work best for me, etc. I buy my must-have products in bulk and rarely stray from my routine. Hypothetically speaking, I could get ready with my eyes closed at this point. I used to do my experimenting in the lipstick and nail polish categories, but as I’ve gotten older, I’m realizing just how picky I am. Whether it’s a good or a bad thing, I know what I like and I know what I don’t.
