The jpskillz style tip of the day!

8 ¶ The voice of my beloued! behold! hee commeth leaping vpon the mountaines, skipping vpon the hils.

9 My beloued is like a Roe, or a yong Hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh foorth at the windowe, shewing himselfe through the lattesse.

10 My beloued spake, and said vnto me, Rise vp, my Loue, my faire one, and come away.

11 For loe, the winter is past, the raine is ouer, and gone.

12 The flowers appeare on the earth, the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.

13 The fig tree putteth foorth her greene figs, and the vines with the tender grape giue a good smell. Arise, my loue, my faire one, and come away.

STYLE TIP : L A Y E R | L E S S O N 7

Today’s lesson is pretty simple.  WET GOES WITH WET.  Most wouldn’t think to put a Vest over their Rain Blazer.  But it just makes sense if you think about it.  They’re both crafted for “Bad” weather.It’s the perfect way to stay Warm & Dry on a Rainy Winter day.  Spring officially starts tomorrow if you’re wondering.  LoL  Don’t forget that Blue & Green do go together, but it’s a slippery slope.  I’m ready for the elements…are you?  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

BOOTS: Cole Haan Lunargrand Boots $300 | PANTS: Banana Republic Fatigue Slim Fit Dress Pants $10 (SALE) | SWEATER: GAP by En Noir $40 | RAIN BLAZER: Target by Merona $30 | VEST: Target by Merona $25

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Happy Monday, or should I say New Day! I was thinking this morning, as I often do LoL, Style not only has to be Tailored to your body, it has to be Tailored to your day. This is what truly gives a person Personal Style. I say this, because I didn’t post my usual #FotoshootFriday Friday. I just did not get around to it. So I was thinking about just using it this Friday. Who would know the difference? Right? Well, then I thought, if the weather is different, it won’t make sense. So you see Personal Style depends on these 2 important variables.

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

It’s the day after Labor Day and for most of us it’s back to Labor. Nothing says work better than Camaflouge! OK, okay…let’s just get the G.I. Joe jokes out the way before we get started. LoL Okay now, The day after Labor Day also means you should see some nice Style. After all, it is a day of sales. Both garments are just a few of the Steals I found yesterday!

Then we have to respect this city. And I’ll do that with these City Shorts from Banana Republic! Great for casual or business. Throw on a Button Up and you’re ready to close the deal. Throw on a T-shirt and you’re ready for a relaxing getaway. It’s all about “VERSATILITY!” Remember, baggy is out. Let your shorts stop above the knee. And you want them tailored not Daisy. To give you an idea, I generally wear a 32 inch waist, but these are a 30. $10!

Also got this gem from BR! I don’t own any short sleeve collar shirts, but this one has opened my eyes! LoL Trust me I’ll be copping some more. The key to wearing camouflage is not to over do it. When you have a piece this strong you have to let it speak for itself. Don’t mess it up by trying to over match it. Notice how I chose the dominant brown instead of green for the shirt. It lessons the impact and makes it Stylish instead of Childish. It’s an art form so be patient 😉 $12!
