Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Activewear

Hey guys!  This is the month that lots of people are committing to a workout routine for the New Year. I actually took that commitment last January and was doing great until the holidays at the end of the year.  My goal was to workout 1 hour at least 4 times a week doing Barre3 and the stationary bike.  I was actually pretty consistent most of the year.  This year I want to not only continue that trend but to also eat better! I have a sweet tooth like you wouldn’t believe.  So needless to say I stayed the same weight all year.  This year hopefully that’s going to change!!! So this brings me to the theme of this post! Since January and February are…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: 2017 Favorites

Hello ladies! Welcome to the new Flat Lay to Life-Styled post!  In this post I will show you my real “life-styled” photos of some of my previous flat lays! YAY!  I have been wanting to do this for a while so I am excited to bring you the first one today! I picked some of my most liked outfits from this fall season.  I will also give you some styling tips along the way! Enjoy! This first outfit is with my favorite faux fur jacket of the season.  This one screamed my name as soon as I saw it because it was a bomber jacket in faux fur!  What a great combination.  I love that it looks so casual but makes you feel so chic when…

Advice for Purchasing an Over The Knee Boot

Well ladies,  I have had my first…ever experience in buying a pair of over the knee boots.  I have always loved them but never took the plunge until a couple of weeks ago.  I know it is somewhat late in the season but that means you could possibly find a great pair that is on sale.  You know I love a good sale!  I got my over the knee boots at Goodnight Macaroon at 30% off.  I paid around $100 for them and had to wait 3 weeks because they supposedly make them to order.  I purchased these for multiple reasons and learned a significant amount through the process. I feel like this would be a larger purchase for most people so I wanted…

What’s New for Style by Jamie Lea in 2018?

Hey Ladies!  Happy New Year! Have you thought about your goals for 2018?  I think goals are really important for everyone and they help give us direction and purpose in our lives.  I just started seriously blogging in the middle of 2017, so I have lots of goals in mind for 2018.  My business has been on a roller coaster ride for the past couple of years and blogging full-time was not something I thought I would be doing (but I am very glad it is!).   My dream is to educate women on how to have a versatile wardrobe without being boring, how to mix and match their pieces and how to make valuable purchases.  I want women to feel confident in who they are…

Sale Favorites To Buy Now: Nordstrom

Hey everyone! We are so close to the new year and this year went by scary fast!  It seems the older I  get the faster time goes by.  Do you agree? I love the holidays but it takes me a few days to recover from all of our festivities with family. While I was  recovering I got behind on some of my writing so sorry this is coming to you a little late. I wanted to give you my suggestions of things to buy after Christmas that would be worth adding to your wardrobe.  I am going to start with Nordsrom today because they are having their Half Year Sale and there are actually some things I have been eyeing that are on sale. All…

Darling Christmas Dress

Hey ladies! I hope everyone is on track with everything they need to get done before Christmas arrives.  I feel a little bit of pressure because we are hosting family on Christmas Eve and we are going out of town the two days before that! Yikes, I have a lot to do!  We also started a new tradition a few years ago to make the food on Christmas Eve nontraditional. Instead of turkey and dressing we choose a different food theme each year.  Last year we did a Taco Bar and this year we are doing Italian food!  It has been a huge hit with family so we are going to try to keep it going.  Who else gets tired of turkey and dressing…

Cocktail Jackets;Problem Solved!

Hey ladies! I am writing a quick post on what I recommend to wear over a cocktail dress. I had a client that struggled to find something to keep her warm when she was going to cocktail parties.  Well, I know that most women are cold ALL THE TIME so  I decided that other woman may need a solution for this as well.  I like solving these types of problems for people, so if this is you too then please keep reading! A simple pashmina is a great solution to cover the arms but is really not a great solution for warmth.  For those that need a little more warmth  faux fur, sequins and velvet are great solutions. These materials are considered luxurious and therefore…
