Fashion Time

Hello Loves!

Today is fashion post day! wooohoo . . .

I'm going to focus on pants and leggings before winter is officially over (which I hope it will be soon), because then it's all about shorts!

Here we go
                     Pants and leggings. Honestly, I think that they are your best option to choose when going out at night and having to decide what to wear. Sometimes it might be too cold out to put on a skirt or dress, so choosing pants and leggings are a great choice!

This outfit is a perfect, basic example. The outfit as a whole is a great look to wear when going out to a causal place. The button down shirt gives it a nice, crisp look and the black circle scarf adds warmth and a wintry feel to it. The leggings pull this outfit in and look great with the shirt. The boots are my fav haha but the motorcycle style boots look great on this edgy looking outfit all together. To jazz it up a bit, you can add some big bulky bracelets (neutral colors I would say: i.e. gold, silver, bronze, metallic black).

I really like this outfit. As you can see, the leggings are the main part to this outfit. They provide as a great "pant" and makes it easy to get dressed for going out. The boots are great because they have that hard, black, moto boot look to it, but with the heel it dresses up the outfit a little more. The sweater is so cute and great for warmth and the bag and bracelets really finish the look off nice

This next picture shows another example of how to wear leggings when going out. This outfit is so simple, with just black jeggings and a white shirt, but all you need to add is a trendy little bag (like the feather one shown above), some long necklaces and maybe a stone bracelet to complete the look. Whether you are trying to pull off a fancy or just trendy look add either tall army boots are a big platform heel boots. They can make the world's difference by just adding a heel or going flat footed.

I love these leggings. When you search for a great pair of leggings, look for this type. The top looks like a pant, but inside the knees is leather. This is such a cool, stylish piece of clothing that you can wear over and over again making a different look each time. You can dress it down by adding a tshit on top, just wearing a sweat shirt like the girl shown above did, or add a nice flowy or fancy top to dress it up.

 Have a great day with an amazing stylish looks!

Nicki Minaj - Super Bass

I love her and this song!

Style by Lauren Conrad - Follow up!

Hey guys!

Sorry I haven't been so current on blogging. My schedule keeps getting busier!

I remember I promised to write about how the book Style by Lauren Conrad was.

 Well, I finished it, and my review is very short: two simple words -- get it. Take it out of the library, buy it, or borrow it from someone! It is well worth the read!

 In the book, Lauren explains the basics of shopping (helping you decided what is a good buy, or when to put down that shirt that you THINK you want), and also how to "re-vamp" your wardrobe. Other chapters include beauty (makeup), jewelry (when to wear a long necklace, and what kind of earrings to shop for), what to pack when traveling and what to wear when traveling, and also how to style your hair. All of the topics are great to read about  and become familiar with so your "getting ready" process, or "wardrobe closet" can change.

Safe to say, if you buy this book, you will be investing in not only a great book, but a shopping/beauty guide which can come in handy in future years.

With love, 
Kara Jae

P.S. I'll try to be posting more often if only school wasn't so crazy . . .

Happy Valentines Day!

For those of you who may be home alone today, or those who are smothered in love - Happy Valentines Day!

Some might say that today is the best day to express how your love and how you feel about someone without looking like a fool. Others might have thrown an "I hate Valentine's Day" party. haha (I'm with them) I don't have a Valentine today, so I'll be my OWN valentine :)

On a different note, I wanted to let everyone know how much I love them! Everyone is important no matter who or what they are. You are loved and we all care about you! Don't forget to tell your loved ones, friends, and family how much you love them today!

With tons of love, hearts and kisses,
Kara Jae

Enrique Iglesias!

Hey Guys!

It's been a long time since my last post! (at least it feels like it) haha . . .

I've been super busy lately with school, college meetings, and weekend plans that I haven't had the time to sit down and just blog.

But I MUST catch you up on what I've been doing :)
I'll spare you the details about school, they are boring and who wants to read about school? not me.

First, I watched what is now my current favorite movie. The Social Network. I was hooked the whole movie. I loved the story line, the humor and of course, the cast! Once it was over, I couldn't wait to watch it again! Haha

On Friday,  I went to Starbucks with my friend to chat about a couple things...

Then, on Saturday Feb 5th, I went into the city to see ENRIQUE IGLESIAS!! Ahh! The concert started at 8:00 and opened with Jay Sean. Before we walked over to Madison Square Garden,  (from Harrington's Bar where we ate), we stopped into Forever 21. Of course, I bought something. How could I not? haha I picked up a really pretty ring and flower leggings! YES I FOUND FLOWER LEGGINGS! I was looking for them for forever this season! You have no IDEA how happy I was! It was a great shopping moment!

After our shopping spree, we walked back over to the Garden and waited for Enrique to come on. Jay Sean opened with his songs: Down, Do you Remember, 2012, and his new hit single which he hadn't performed any where else, Hit the Lights! (Check it out on YouTube, it's greaaaaat)!

Then at about 9, Enrique came on and AH! I get the chills thinking about it! He sang all of his great songs and we sang along, danced, and screamed when he would smile ... because oh my goodness! He is just SO cute!

Here are a few pictures from the concert:

It was a fantastic day in the city with friends watching enrique iglesias in concert! I couldn't have asked for a better day :)

With enrique iglesias love,

The Truth?

I only trust 2 people in my life. And I’m happy with that.

You know how there are those people who might say to you “You should be lucky that I trust you?” Well they are wrong. THEY should be the ones who feel lucky because they can trust YOU.

We all have that one person (or in my case, two), people that you can tell anything to. You know that they won’t judge you, or control you. They don’t take you for granted. They love you for who you are and you feel so lucky to have them. I am so thankful for that and more…

So what am I most thankful for? The truth. Sometimes it’s the truth you’ve been trying not to face, or the truth that will change your life. Sometimes it’s the truth that’s a long time coming. Or the truth that you prayed would never see the light of day. Some truths may not be heard the way we hoped they would. But they linger, long after they’ve been said. But the kind of truth I’m most thankful for? The kind you never see coming, that falls right into your lap.

With secrets to hide and truths to tell...
