The Denim Jacket Trend | Style Sundays

Happy Sunday! Sorry for the lack of posts this past week. It’s been a busy past couple of weeks, but I have a few things I’ve been working on for you guys coming up soon!

This week’s ‘Style Sunday’ is going to be a bit different. I thought I would change it up a bit in order not to bore you with the outfits of the day posts every week. I’m thinking I will do a monthly recap, or whenever I feel I have enough of a variety of outfits to showcase. As always, you can see my OOTD’s on my Instagram: @itsmekelsie22.

Today’s post will be all about denim/jean jackets! There are so many different jean jackets to choose from and so many different ways to style them. Below, I am showing off several different styles and ways to wear each one!

First off, let’s start with the Classic Denim Jacket. You can wear this with casual attire or more dressy attire!  I like to pair mine with a t-shirt and leggings or a cute maxi dress.

Roundup of My Most Recent Audiobook Reads + Reviews

Happy WEDNESDAY everyone! I just started a new audiobook on Audible and figured I would share with you my thoughts on the recent books! I started listening to audiobooks sometime last year and haven’t stopped since! I think my favorite books are self-help books and non-fiction, but it doesn’t hurt to change it up a bit every once in a while.

If you missed my last post on my audiobook reviews, see it here.

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo

Amy Schumer is hilarious in this book! There are definitely some serious parts, however overall it is a great book and I would recommend it to anyone!  I especially love that Amy is the one reading the audiobook.

#OOTD Recap + New Sunglasses | Style Sundays

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a great week and weekend! We got a lot of yardwork done this weekend at the house and I spent some needed, and long overdue time at the gym during this past week, so I wasn’t focused on my outfits too much. For this week’s ‘Style Sunday’, I figured I would share with you the select few outfits I did get photos of, as well as a recent sunglasses find!

As always, you can see my OOTD’s on my Instagram: @itsmekelsie22.

First up, I found this guy hidden in the back of my closet- it has probably only been worn once to my fiance’s work Christmas party, so I busted it out, added some leggings and these scalloped, pointed toe flats and it worked out perfect for my Monday!

Favorite Nail Colors + Press On Nails| Spring Fashion Series

(If you are reading this post on BlogLovin’- some links and photos will not show up. See original post for all photos, links, etc.)

As with my spring makeup post, I know nails aren’t considered “Fashion” either, but an outfit isn’t complete without the perfect manicure too, right? So, in Part 4, I’m going to talk about my favorite nail colors for spring.

If you missed Part 1-3 of my Spring Fashion Series, see them here:

Part 1: Spring Clothing Must-Haves
Part 2: Spring Accessory Must-Haves
Part 3: Spring Makeup Must-Haves

To me, spring nails means softer colors. My favorites are lighter pinks, nudes and creams.  Occasionally I like to throw in a brighter color, but lighter is my go-to. I’m sharing with you my recent favs for spring nail colors, including my favorite press-on nails.

Spring Makeup Must-Haves | Spring Fashion Series

(If you are reading this post on BlogLovin’- some links and photos will not show up. See original post for all photos, links, etc.)

Now, I know makeup isn’t “Fashion”, but an outfit isn’t complete without the perfect makeup, am I right? So, in Part 3, let’s talk about my favorite go-to spring makeup.

If you missed Part 1 and 2 of my Spring Fashion Series, see them here:

Part 1: Spring Clothing Must-Haves
Part 2: Spring Accessory Must-Haves

Blushes

First, let’s start with some BLUSH. Spring is the time for that perfect pink or peachy-pink color. I love my Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso – it’s a peachy pink color that’s perfect on the apples of the cheeks.  There’s a pop of shimmer, but not too much. My other go-to is my Colourpop Matte Blush in Between the Sheets, which is more of a nudey-pink shade.
