Beetlejuice Pants

I’ve talked about this many times before, but I think it is one of the most important things to remember about style, so I’m gonna talk about it some more – there shouldn’t be rules in fashion. Finding your own personal style is about discovering what you like, what looks good on you and what doesn’t, and the only way to do that is to try new things all the time. Personal style and preferences can change and I think they should. For me, my style changes on the daily. One day, I may be super into the boho thing. The next I may edge-it-up. Another day I might combine the two, and other days I’m tired so my style is yoga pants and Uggs.

The point is, style is something very personal. It is a way to express yourself, so don’t worry about other people’s opinions all the time. If you have a crazy pair of pants that make you feel good and you can wear them with confidence, you strut your stuff in those crazy pants!

Recently, I bought myself a pair of crazy pants and was struggling trying to decide if I liked them or not. I decided to wear them one day, sort of to test drive them, and I asked my mom what she thought. She said they looked like Beetlejuice pants. I was running late, so I kept them on anyway.

Later on, my hairdresser said she loved my pants and even later on, so did my dad! Just goes to show opinions are everywhere, so the only one that ever really matters (when it comes to style at least) is yours.

These pants aren’t going to be a staple in my wardrobe, but my test drive was a fun little experiment. Plus, my mom and I came up with some great possible halloween costumes.

Style Inspiration

Hello everyone! I recently was flipping through a magazine and found some awesome inspiration that I wanted to take and make my own creations based off of. I’m not the kind of person who likes to follow or buy into trends, but I do like to find different styles and make them my own. I think sometimes if you follow trends too much and take them too seriously, you can end up not feeling like yourself and your own personal flare becomes someone else’s. You should always try new things and be fearless because that’s how you create your personal style! I’ve never been into acting, but I think what you wear can totally influence the way you act, so in a way switching up your style is like becoming a different version of yourself each time!

And since I’m always trying to change up my style, one of the things I love the most about my Chloe & Isabel jewelry is that it can enhance any one of the different styles I want to try.

What do you think of the green-on-green or print-on-print look?

Style Sets…Continued!

Only THREE more days left to take advantage of the SUMMER15 promo code and get 15% off ALL Chloe & Isabel jewelry! Today, I wanted to do a style set that speaks to the C & I brand – we have a little something called the Friendship Philosophy, which basically embraces the fact that best friends can be total opposites (a Chloe and an Isabel), and still be best friends!

A Chloe is edgy, trendy and not afraid to break the rules. An Isabel is classic, elegant and fashion-forward. In a nutshell.
