Tiff and Jen Style It: Stripe Pleated Flounce Skirt

I love the stripe trend this spring and in designing our new skirts, we wanted to have a classic wide stripe skirt in our line.  My sister and I styled it up our own way and since we hadn’t shown a duo style it in a while we thought we would share it.

I (Jen) live in Chicago so wearing a short skirt is a bit tougher but the weather doesn’t stop me from wearing what I love :)!.  I paired our cute skirt with a leopard trench and my favorite over the knee boots.

My style is quite girly but also modern which I think describes this skirt perfectly!  I styled the skirt with a lace tee and added my favorite pink blazer to make it a bit more fun.  Plus, black, white and pink are one of my favorite color combinations so you’ll see me in these colors a lot!  Jen and I both have different styles but gravitate towards the same things so it doesn’t surprise me that we paired the skirt with the exact same necklace!stripe_skirt_styleit-2 stripe_skirt_styleit

Style It: Spring 2015 Blogger Shoot

t+jdesignsbloggershootWe launched a new collection of tees, sequin skirts and patterned pleated skirts and I gathered some cute Chicago bloggers to help me shoot some group shots for our site and for future editorials.  The best part about blogging?  Knowing these wonderful people through social media and blogging.  The hardest part about this shoot?  Man it was cold!  It’s Chicago, so it isn’t warm and as you can see there’s snow in most of the photos.  Well, these lovely ladies braved the conditions to show off our new arrivals and I can’t thank them enough!  These are some of my favorite photos (there were about 400); it was so hard to narrow down but you’ll be seeing more later.

Pink is a color we see trending for spring and we will be launching it in this adorable midi as well as a maxi skirt.  Anna from A Lily Love Affair wears it with our Bisou Bisou Tee and adds some color with our mint clutch.

t+jdesignsbloggershoot9Our holiday maxi sequin skirts did so well, my sister and I wanted to add some more to our spring collection.  I love this leafy pattern and we went with the black and gold classic combination and I loved the silver and white for spring.  These will launch in April.  
t+jdesignsbloggershoot10 t+jdesignsbloggershoot11Thank you to Erica, Kelsey, Anna and Johanna for joining me in a mini shoot.  With the sun beaming and our smiles you can’t tell we are cold at all!  And thank you to my team, Hope and Shannon for taking the pics, holding jackets, and getting us all organized.

We missed Tiffany but as soon as the weather gets better we will be shooting together soon.

Style It: Jewels

Styling my jewelry is one of my favorite things to do.  I get a lot of questions from customers on how to style statement pieces so I pulled a couple of my favorite recent looks to show how I personally style some of our items.  And this week all jewelry, clutches and sale items are 30% off.  Shop here and use code 30JEWELS.

crystalnecklaceIt has been freezing in Chicago so I paired a graphic tee from my line with a faux fur coat, some comfy boyfriend denim and this crystal medallion necklace that is only $17 right now.  Any plain tee or graphic tee can be styled up with a crystal necklace.  Or if you more of an office girl, pair the necklace with your button down shirt.

crystalnecklace1The rings above can be found here for 30% off.

crystalnecklace2This stunner is my favorite to pair with anything black. Black tee, tank, black dress but also looks great with white.  To me this is the ultimate statement necklace and whenever I wear it people ask me about it.

crystalnecklace3 crystalnecklace4This necklace is part of our modern metals collection and I love the edgy look with the tassels.  Once again black looks terrific with the necklace and with the weather we are having a turtleneck is an essential.  The sequin pencil skirt is new and pairs well with the silver necklace.  (It is a great date night option!)

crystalnecklace7I’m a polka dot kind of girl and any polka dot button down is cute with denim, leather pants, skirts and topped off with a colorful necklace.  This necklace was an item featured in US Weekly and I love the colors paired with black and white.  If you love this  plaid coat, I got it from here; it is sold out but I love this new one they have for $60

crystalnecklace8Nothing beats layers in this cold weather and this fairisle pattern sweater was a recent purchase from H&M.  The luxe pearl cluster necklace is my favorite as well as a customer bestseller.  It looks great with any sweater, pattern or solid and definitely upgrades the look from traditional pearls.

These are just some looks I’ve been sporting lately but overall I’m a big believer that you should wear what you love.  A statement necklace can finish off your look easily and don’t be afraid to wear it during the day.

*Shop any of the jewelry above here and don’t forget to use the code 30JEWELS. Sale ends Sunday night!
