Well that time has come! Your 30, you don’t want to hear it! I know I didn’t. That being said I feel so much more gathered and put than I ever have in my 20s. At 30 you feel more established. You have more direction. So in your wardrobe it’s time to freshen up the class a bit! I want to touch on a few thoughts and rules for dressing in your 30s.
1. Start to invest in The Classics: You are more established now. Your out of college. Your starting your careers or families now. So it’s time to invest in a little bit more of yourself and look a bit more polished and put together. So find that look that has a clean slate but you can add some crazy color or patterns to those pumps. So get some blazers that you can take your 20′s favorite T-shirt and still wear but class it up a bit with one of your blazers. Classic black dress instead of that one that was your favorite college dress. A bit more tailored or structured to show experience and you classic beauty.
2. Simple Jeans: You’re a bit older now you can afford those more expensive jeans that hold you in like a lady. Choose a bit more comfort to fit your lifestyle. A more confidant and mature style instead of those big stitching ones that match your 10 year olds. If you love them that’s ok but maybe don’t wear a tight T-shirt with stones and princess crowns all over it to match totally with your 10 year old top and bottom. Really stand out for being a beautiful and sexy mother or working woman or both with your own twist of style that is more mature and that fits who you are. If you do pick a crazy jean than that’s fine balance it out with a classic black T-shirt and blazer or sweater on top that fits and looks like a lady.
3. Say Goodbye to Mid drifts and mini Skirts: Yes I know what some are going to say! “Jen I work out everyday and I want to show off what hard work looks like after having children”! Yes, I know. I get it. I have given birth to 5 children I know! Here is the deal. Save it for the pool and gym. I don’t need to see you walking around with your whole tummy hanging out to respect how hard you work out. In fact I am going to think you are more beautiful dressed in some classic T-shirt and jeans and funky pair of Oxford’s like a cute Jennifer Aniston than seeing you whole body hanging out like your 21! Woman that are 21 look hot and that’s what they are looking for me to say at that age. I say you need to be looking for ” I look beautiful, smart, confidant, and sexy. So no tummy rings showing please! Modesty is your friend!
SIDE NOTE: SHOW LESS BELLY AND MORE LEG IT’S JUST CLASSY
So look your age but still look cool, innovative, modern, and fresh! Add patterns and colors in a J. Crew classic feel and not a Brittney spears way! No offensive. She’s cute but time to cover up a bit more and start investing more time and money in what you are wearing. Invest in those classic pieces and find that inner confidence.
Thanks to the Daily Dish for having me on their TV show as a Fashion Expert. I will be posting a link to that show and photos after it airs today! Stay Tuned…….
Calling all fashion lovers, it’s time to pull out the 4th style. Here is my big thing about this day. I hate over the top crazy grandma style when your jello matches your sweater, just not my type of tea. What I love is when you take your style you already love and just switch up your color pallet. Not over the top. Just a fun all american preppy feel that can take you to that BBQ, Night out with friends, and or to your family lake house. So here are some fun ideas to get you all prepped out for your 4ht of July StyleHouse Event.
BackYard Party: Love this! More of what my style is all about. More of that fun baseball game with the family and than sitting around with friends and roasting marshmallows. This is my type of 4th, relaxed but ready to sit on the grass to watch fireworks. Cute and chic ready.
City ready: I love this because you can wear to work or out to a fun lunch date with your girls! Looking ready for the day but in a chic way that is not over the top! Love a yummy skirt with a blouse or even a fun t shirt and blazer to dress it up a bit. It’s like you meant to do it but not in a too over the top way. Fourth Chic all the way around town.
Lake House: This just screams J. Crew to me. I feel like I am a total prep-ster in my t shirt dress and some cute sandals or tennis shoes. I love this look. Reminds me of a good game of tennis and then out on the dock to watch fireworks over the lake. Big sunglasses and a fun t shirt dress can go either way dress it up, or dress it down. Either way your looking amazing for the fun night. Stripes say it all.
Seaside Moment: I love this because you can get all fancy for that hot party on the beach and sparkle a bit more than usual. Again this look is classic and clean and not like something you found in your mums closet. I love this because really it’s a all american look and reminds me of a east coast preppy look. So cute. Always finds ways to add in the colors, navy, white, cream, gold, and or silver.
Ok everyone have a blast and remember to drive safe and watch for bikers this holiday season!! One more thing you can always add in reds, blue, stars, and white in your accessories if you can’t afford a whole new outfit. Don’t break the bank . Have a safe 4th.

New Year/ New Closet Check list:

Well as a personal shopper and Stylist I do a bunch of wardrobe analyst and I give them this exact list.
