Here's a quick, casual look for you guys. On days like today when more snow is expected, I have a to do list that requires me to leave the house and I feel ill-equipped to face the day I reach for my casual favorites, which for me always includes stripes. I have a dozen striped tops and dresses, for some reason stripes make me feel put together without having to try, maybe it's because they magically go with everything? I mean seriously, see here, here, and most recently here...everything I tell ya, stripes go with everything.

DCFW LOOK 2

WHITE BUTTON DOWN | | FAUX LEATHER DENIM | | BLACK BOOTIES (SIMILAR) | | COAT (SIMILAR) | | PUSSY BOW (BELT FROM A JUMPER | SIMILAR) | | HANDBAG (IN PUTTY) c/o SHOPBOP, SOLD OUT (IDENTICAL) | | WATCH (SIMILAR) | | PEARL EARRINGS | | NAILS: 'SNOW ME WHITE' BY SINFULCOLORS PROFESSIONAL | | LIPS: 'REBEL' BY MAC

Happy Hump Day! Here's the second and final look from DCFW, I had planned on going to more than just two events but mother nature had something else in mind, snow, lots and lots of snow. I stuck to what I know and went for a classic black and white look with a red lip, but decided to get adventurous and try out a pussy bow. I love the pussy bow trend even though I think the name is ridiculous, and overall think the look came together rather well even though I joked that I looked like part of the wait staff all night.

Last week kicked off DC Fashion Week (DCFW) and while it is nothing in comparison to NYFW, because DC is the LEAST fashion forward city, it was fun to get dressed up and venture out to events. This is what I wore opening night, I wanted to keep things simple since I honestly had no clue what to expect, so I opted for a black silhouette beefed up with a blush car coat and my ever so dependable floral pumps. I have been so inspired by pastels lately and have fallen head over heels in love with all of the colors and styles Rebecca Minkoff has to offer this season. I debated color, size and style for so long but ultimately decided to get this handbag since it seemed to fit in with what I "needed" HA! Below is a variety of others that are available:

SNOW DAY WEEKEND WEAR

CABLE KNIT SWEATER (SIMILAR-ON SALE!) | | BLACK TURTLENECK | | VEST (SIMILAR) | | DENIM | | BOOTS | | HANDBAG (SIMILAR) | | GLOVES | | SUNGLASSES (SIMILAR) | | BEANIE (SIMILAR | LOVE THIS ONE!) | | PEARL EARRINGS | | NAILS: 'SNOW ME WHITE' BY SINFULCOLORS PROFESSIONAL | | LIPS: 'BORN WITH IT' BY MAYBELLINE 

Happy Monday! This weekend we got quite a bit of snow, if you follow me on Instagram (@jasmindailyfashion) you know I spent Saturday making beef stew while it snowed all day and yesterday I spent out and about. It was relatively warm despite the snow so I ditched the coat and stuck with layers including my go to turtleneck, a cable knit sweater and vest with the fur, the perfect trio for some fun in the snow.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

FRIDAY FINDS


First off happy Friday! Boy has this week been a long one, I am soooo ready for the weekend.
This time of the year means trend predictions, it is so fun to guess what is going to be big for future seasons, and to see which trends come to fruition while others quickly go out of style. I find it especially pleasing to work out how to take runway trends to the streets and make them "every day girl" appropriate. I recently posted this pic on Instagram, these babies in particular are from Target, but espadrille flats are popping up everywhere! I think it is fair to say that espadrilles, especially in the form of a flat, are going to be all the rage this spring and summer and I definitely don't hate it. Feathers and suede were all over the runways, it really doesn't matter where you rock the feathers but you need them in your life and as for the suede, well I just hope you have your dry cleaner on standby because cleaning suede shoes is a job in itself, never mind suede clothing. Last but not least, okay least for me, are the mules...eh I'm not a fan. I don't really have significant reasons for why I'm not a fan, I haven't even tried a pair on, but I just feel odd about the exposed heel and I mean don't they fall off?!

What trends are you hoping to see stick around this season?
