Fresh Kids Dream Big- Dre

A while back I shared an idea with you guys that really just came to me because of the new man in my life… Here he is again.

Handsome huh?

#FreshKidsDreamBig was born because this little guy (Dre) is always getting compliments on his style and mannerisms (like the hands in his pocket- His own doing!) EVERY where we go and in addition to me sharing that with you, I wanted to give you a chance to share your little stylish dreamer with me! All you need is a nice picture… clear and clean background with details on where the clothes were purchased. Here is how it’s done, again…

Shirt- Walmart

Jeans- Levi’s

Shoes- Gap

Sweater- H&M

Here’s a picture of him with the sweater on… It’s getting cool outside.

As you can see, we don’t discriminate on where we purchase clothes from as long as the quality is there and he’s comfortable.

So… do you have a little one that you want to share? Email your pictures and details to jamiedreamsbig@gmail.com and I’ll email you before the post goes up…

Can’t wait to see all the cute and handsome little dreamers.

Introducing Haskell

Hey guys! I hope you have enjoyed your weekend and I certainly hope that I’ve contributed to that in some way…

Well, here we are… the last day of the weekend of posts where I’m showing you some of the frames that I received in my Warby Parker Home Try-on Program AND the shoes that I purchased in my first JustFab order. I have to say, I love this look also because it was very minimal and comfortable but the frames and the shoes jazzed it up just enough.

The name of these frames is Haskell and they are in the Crystal color. I think they are so perfect for Summer Festivals and casual looks that might look a little drab without cool accessories to give it a little something extra.

And while we’re on the subject of accessories let me just say that I love accessories but they aren’t always very conventional… it may be something like my HAIR that I use to add to the overall look especially if I’m going to be out and about and don’t want to bother with bags or even jewelry.

It’s a simple style… 2 French braids but the fact that the parts aren’t even adds a little something different to the look.

The dress is from Forever21 and is so comfy I went back online to order another one!

The blush colored top is from Urban Outfitters

And making an appearance for the final time this weekend are the Jedelia shoes from JustFab. Overall I like the style of the shoes… they are cute and extremely versatile but they aren’t comfortable. I guess getting what you pay for means quality a lot more than it does style and maybe this is why the shoes are ALWAYS so inexpensive. I mean, I’ll wear them… but I wont be running to them regularly.

That’s all folks! I hope you like these type of posts. I’ll be exploring lots of Fashion and different ways to showcase it here on the blog. If you have any great ideas or suggestions on what you want to see please let me know.

What Summer fashion trends and accessories are you being torn away from as Fall approaches?

Piper and Jedelia

In case you don’t already know all weekend I’ll be sharing pictures of the frames I’m trying out from Warby Parker AND I’ll be showing you some cute, Summer fashion (before it creeps away) along with it. Today is Day 2 and I have to say, I think it’s my favorite!

 Details are below…

The frames are called Piper and were my favorite of my 5 day Home Try-on Program from Warby Parker. I love them! They are actually the same frames from my previous post but the all black just took it “there” for me.

The blazer and tank top are from Forever21

The skirt is from H&M

  The shoes are from JustFab and are called Jedelia.(This weekend I’m also showing how they can be styled 3 different ways.)

The bag was thrifted YEARS ago and honestly I cant even remember what state I was in… Lol.

  I hope you like this look and I’m so excited to be showing Fashion on the blog again. Tomorrow will be the last of this series but look forward to more fun posts from me as well as some street fashion, kid fashion, and features from other bloggers.

New music obsession… Reality Show

Hey guys!! I’ve missed you… You missed me too? Oh, how sweet!

Okay so, I’ve always loved music. I’ve always loved real artists. Artists that express themselves well and that care more about the artistry in music that what their face looks like while their singing. Nothing’s wrong with being cute but I love expression! With all that being said…. Maaaan. Have you heard Jazmine Sullivan’s new album?! Sheesh! The girl is crazy talented… She has the ability to FEEL every word she wrote like she JUST wrote it. I love it! I’ve been completely obsessed with her new album “Reality Show” and of course I wanted to bring some of her energy here to the blog. I had a difficult time choosing which video or song because I love them ALL so much. I decided to go with the song that I heard first… Before the album was even released. She explains what the song is about and sings it flawlessly! Listen and let her story inspire you!

 

Her voice and her artistry is so amazing… If you haven’t heard the album…

You sleep. Under a BIG rock! Go listen and go get it!

Travel: St Louis

Hey my loves! Traveling is something I’ve always loved doing and when I originally came up with the idea for the blog I wanted to include that part of my life. Unfortunately up until now I haven’t. I am still unsure of exactly how this will go but I’m going to just jump in and share a piece of my past weekend with you guys.

So, jamiedreamsbig travel edition first stop: St Louis.

       image

Everyone needs a few car selfies. Right?

Now, I didn’t do a lot in St Louis because the purpose of my trip was really to surprise my sister for her 30th Birthday and she actually lives in Belleville, Illinois. My absolute favorite part of the day is what I’ll be sharing with and and it was… You guessed it!

The St Louis Arch!

image

It reaches 630 feet in the air!!

image

It amazing up close and it’s so high that it was impossible to capture the entire monument in one piece so closely.

image

I was was less than thrilled on the way up in a small tram that looks like the inside of a little spaceship. It took 4 nerve racking minutes to reach the top… I had to eat a snack to calm myself. Lol.

But when we did reach the top, IT. WAS. AMAZING!

image  image  image

There were small windows (16 on each side) that allow you to take a look at the city from a view you’d only otherwise be able to experience by helicopter.

Seeing Busch Stadium, the stadium the St Louis Cardinals play at, was incredible from that high up!

We all know that I’m a geek for anything Historical so I welcomed that aspect of this as well.

Apparently it was built as a Memorial for those who helped and aided with Westward Expansion because of that, there was also a Museum of Westward Expansion. It was full of facts on the expansion and it really covered a lot. We were able to see guns, wagons, tools, coins, and moving exhibits that talked even blinked! It was cool.

image

Yes, I had to get a selfie with the cow. I’m a Texan!

I hope you guys have enjoyed my first travel post. There will definitely be more and I promise they’ll only get better from here.

What’s your favorite thing about St Louis?

Holiday Wear

Hello my loves!! How have you been? I’ve been fine… It’s been a long time coming so I’m excited to say that I’ve got an  OOTD for you. I spent this past weekend stocking up on things from Trader Joes (because we don’t have one in New Orleans… BOOOO!!) and scavenging Christmas tree yards and Target in preparation for Christmas. Because I’m always working I rarely get to actually wear any of my clothes so I wanted to throw on something cute but comfy…

Here’s what I came up with…

image

Simple… But cute. Here are the details…

Striped dress- Forever21

Wool cardigan- GAP

Panama Hat- Urban Outfitters (Staring at Stars)

Thigh High Boots- Nordstrom (BP Holgate Tall Boot)

Kendra’s Fashion Challenge: Epcot with the Family!

Hey my loves!! I hope all is well in your world…

So, I’ve got some pretty big news. About a week ago travel expert Kendra Thornton emailed me and expressed how much she loved my personal style and invited me to participate in her fashion challenge. I couldn’t believe that someone who has been featured on TV shows with Tyra Banks and Nate Berkus even knew about lil ole me.

She’s beautiful huh?!

 

Here is some of what Ms. Kendra had to say about the Challenge… It includes her plans for the trip and even a site for Travel information that she uses herself! Pretty cool…)

 

“I’m looking forward to my trip to Orlando with my family this spring. I don’t want to embarrass my kids by stepping out in out of date fashions while vacationing and taking pictures. I need help picking out the perfect outfit for our family-fun adventures? To help me plan, I’ve created the contest “Kendra’s Fashion Challenge”. I can’t wait to see what recommendations my favorite fashion bloggers have for me! I’ve personally reached out to Jamie to help me put together a chic ensemble for Epcot! The laidback atmosphere of Orlando provides an inviting environment for families coming here on vacation. I used the online website gogobot to help me get reviews of many attractions in Orlando. Many attractions even have special amenities specifically for those traveling with young children. I look forward to enjoying shows and dinners with my family. We’ll probably take the kids to a mini golf course for a few rounds of fun, and I imagine that my husband and I will slip away together to enjoy cocktails at the hotel bar some evening. No matter what my itinerary looks like during my vacation in Orlando, I know I’ll have more fun when I look great. I’m excited to see what outfit you choose for my family’s fun filled day in Epcot!”

 

Well of course, I gladly accepted the challenge. In addition to my love for fashion, I LOVE DISNEY!! I HAD to be apart of this challenge!

 

I had so much fun “shopping” for this challenge… It’s my personal style with Kendra and her family in mind. Now, I don’t have any children (or a Husband. Yet.) but I can imagine that she would want something comfy AND cute. Something that would allow her to be fashionable and on trend but not dressed TOO young. Hmmm… Don’t worry Ms. Kendra- I got ya. I shopped at some of the same places I shop so it was challenging at times because our overall lifestyles are COMPLETELY different. All in all I think it turned out well. Let me know what you think…

The first outfit is very trendy yet comfy! If the family wants to get up and go explore Epcot this would be the perfect outfit to do it in. The solid tank and print shorts are made of very light fabric so she can stay cool and dry easy if there are any water activities. Yes, the leopard print shoes are TOMS THEE most comfortable shoes ever in life!! (Seriously tho!) Now although I don’t have any children I am a very maternal person… When I travel I’m always the one with the things every one needs. The band aids, the camera, the water, etc… So, of course you need a bag. The bag is what really makes this functional because it’s small and light weight enough that it can hold essential things but won’t be so heavy that you don’t want to hold it. All of the accessories are basic enough to let the print on the shorts and the print on the shoes be the focal point of the outfit without throwing in yet another statement piece.

This second outfit really serves as a “just in case” outfit. In my opinion, if you’ve been out in the sun riding rides, playing games, etc you may want or NEED to freshen up and change before dinner and shows. This is the perfect outfit for it! You can be cute and casual in the dress which is simple enough for this look but also can be dressed up or down for any season and most events. I LOVE a good, basic all season dress. Throw on a jacket because most inside live shows are cold… The shoes are the pop of action for this outfit, are great for spring, and because they’re flats you’ll be able to keep up with the kiddos. The same shades and necklaces as before with a bracelet added for a little wrist action. Now, the braids… I love the braids! Omg I do! I actually wear my hair like this often. I don’t know how wild these activities will be but if you’re on rides and running around you don’t want to constantly have to keep pulling your hair back… This style is simple to do but does so much for the overall look.

I was the most excited about this outfit but I have to say it’s the one that challenged me the most. I wanted to find something that was sexy in a subtle way but because I shopped at the same places for her that I shop for myself I was afraid it wouldn’t be age appropriate. So, I kept it pretty simple with form-fitting skirt and a top with a nice print in a great color. The accessories will really give this outfit what it needs… They add a touch of class but in a casual, not too dressy kind of way. Now, anybody that knows me knows I love a good lip color. Lol. This color is light enough that it’ll keep this a Spring look but dark that it’ll be great for an evening look. I looked around for a hairstyle and came across this messy bun/ponytail dressed with headbands. I love it! The reality of this situation is that there won’t be a lot if time for changing and bringing out the glam squad but when it’s time to leave the kids behind for adult fun, it won’t be hard to put your hair up and put a headband on.

So, what do you guys think of the looks I created for her? I had so much fun shopping and living vicariously through her and the upcoming trip to Epcot.
