First let me start by saying that I pretend that I am Stevie Knicks on a regular basis, so it only seems right that I would be drawn to a 1970′s style look. Not only is this Joie beaded top perfect for Summer but it’s freakishly cute. As always I am wearing giant sunglasses a la Chloe (Similar) and topped it off with a floppy hat. When it comes to this 70′s style it is all in the accessories, so load them on.All I will say about this look is DVF+Coye Nokes=Perfection Nothing makes me happier than a maxi dress. They are so easy to throw on I would wear them to almost anything if I could get away with it. This one is made by Ace & Jig…who pretty much makes the greatest clothes EVER!!! If you aren’t on the maxi train just yet go out and buy a simple one and see how you like it. Places like Gap, Target, and Nordstrom Rack always carry inexpensive and trendy options.
Welcome back to an all inclusive look into the life of a 20 something year old messy haired weirdo. Since I am in the process of overhauling this blog from a fashion site to a place for me to bitch and moan, I figured I would start with discussing my weekend warrior status. When I was a few years younger, I would go out from 10-2 and then go home drunk and pass out…now that I am older I think I am invincible (ya right). Not only do I go out on weekends now, but suddenly I find myself going out on week nights to drink. Now I am sure you are thinking “wow this girl is an alcoholic” but actually I am bored to death! Last night for example I did not even drink but stayed out until 3 am, what does that say about me? Honestly, I have no clue so if anyone has any opinions or suggestions…keep them to yourself!
Don’t get me wrong, I love taking a shot and dancing with my friends just as much as the next girl but sometimes it is just exhausting. We spend 1-2 hours getting ready, then 1-2 hours trying to get drunk, then the bar is almost closed and you want to after party, and before you know it the clock says 5 am! Something to consider when going out all night, bring makeup and a kit of things that can help you to avoid looking like the 21 year old girl throwing up in her purse. My kit has the following items:
-Mini Brush/Bobbi Pins/Hair Ties
These items are always in my car, along with a pair of sandals and a swimsuit, because you just never know! So if you plan to party like you never have before I strongly suggest have a plan and get a kit together. If you need one more reason to do this…remember people always post photos!
Outfit Details: Dress- Mara Hoffman, Clutch-Sedgwick, Sandals-Joie, Sunnies-Valetino (Thanks JC)
All I am going to say about this outfit is this, maxi dresses save my life! Aside from that need I say more about this fun printed Mara Hoffman dress?!
I have been having a serious blue moment recently and I just can’t stop! Now that March is literally just around the corner I am finding myself shopping in a sea of color…perhaps I am itching for a vacation? I have recently learned that blue is not only my favorite color of the season but it has been a serious man getter (not sure if that is a word but it is now). Now normally I dress for myself, or to make other girls give me dirty looks, but I am not going to lie…it feels damn good to get a second glance. Blue is one of those colors that I think looks good on everyone and has a major peacock effect, “Come and get me boys!”
Go out and get a crush on blue..it’ll be worth it trust me.
Believe it or not, sometimes I get sick of myself and need to re-group in order to deliver on this site. I am currently going through what some may call…a makeover. Not only will this blog get a major dose of fashion honesty, but it will also start to see things such as ramblings from my actual life. The life of a single girl trying to build a business, not throw up post drinking, not get sore from dancing, and attempting to meet any guy! I will continue to post outfits and reviews of current trends that i love (and hate), but I think that my personal life is quite the read. So stay tuned and bare with me while I work on some kinks and quirks on the site. If you really really really miss me then you should follow me on-

Ohhh Valentines Day, the one day when every girl suddenly hides their baggy tshirts and decides to throw on some skanky lingerie and hot pink heels. In my opinion it is the most interesting “holiday” that we celebrate, probably because it puts pressure on men to buy flowers, candy, and other miscellaneous gifts…watching them squirm is worth the lingerie! This year I am celebrating Gal-Entines day with my leading ladies, this sounds great until you realize it is only because you aint got no man. I have decided that I will trade in the sadness and depression over my lack of lovin and slip into a party dress and love myself..and a cocktail or four.
My advice for dressing on Gal-Entines day is to just have fun and not take too much time trying to find the perfect outfit, I mean the only people who will see it are your Instagram followers. For me, I like to be over the top and take the Valentines day cliche wardrobe to an extreme…I will be covered in hearts and love if it kills me! The ASOS dresses above are wild and fun and I love them, especially with the Charlotte Olympia heart heels.
Whether you are spending the night with your significant other or your gal pals or your cat, try and enjoy the day of love and get a little wild.

An entire year has gone by since my first SBJ post, and I cannot thank all of you enough! I have gone through a lot in the last year and I have so much to be grateful for. I am very grateful that all of you have come back to see my crazy style and read my ramblings, be prepared for much more of it in 2013. Cheers to another year full of ridiculousness and stylin on the fly!

Hold the phone…a fashion blogger without a shirt on?!?! What is the world coming to? Oh wait that’s right, the no shirt thing is old news and is regularly done by major celebs. Too be honest there are days when I think “Jenna why not just wear your bra with a jacket over it,” so today I answered my question with a simple “Bitch Screw Shirts!” Now I know this seems a little risky and just plain crazy, but how boring would life be without some risks. A little style tip for re-creating this look is to wear a bustier top under a jacket!

It is officially January and it is freezing cold outside, but inside my bundled up brain I am dreaming of bright colors and warm places. As I begin my search for new Spring pieces I am instantly drawn to anything that stands out like a box of crayons. Below are some of my favorite inspiration photos from my Spring fever.
