.bloggersFALLfor // braids.

today's #bloggersFALLfor post is ALL about braids ;) okay, maybe not the entire focus because let's be real I'm not super great at styling my hair. but I super love this outfit so I hope that counts for something! I love that braids are becoming such an 'IT' hairstyle. I'm extra excited because later this week I'm getting my hair done for an event - and I'm totally going all out with the braided look ;) so be sure you're following me on Instagram @jensynjeppsen for all those details ;) 

 this white blouse has been sold out for a LONG time, and I'm so sad because I keep watching for it to come back, but I haven't seen it. I picked it up the first day of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale (and was glad I did because it sold out later that same day!) I'll try to link a similar one for you :) these over the knee boots were a purchase from last Christmas season. If I were to buy another pair (which I'm planning on ;) I'd totally get a flat or lower heeled gray or black pair of OTK boots. I definitely love boots like this in suede or if you wanted to be really daring - try velvet! it's this season's hottest trend!

** a mini hair tutorial :) **

- braid two small sections near front of hair line and fasten with mini clear elastics 
- pull back half of hair up and clip in place
- bring both braids to the back of the head and fasten with clear elastic 
- Rapunzel, let down your hair ;) (make sure your braids come underneath the hair you let down that was clipped up)

ta da! easiest hair style ever! 
I'm not that great at hair so to me this is easy, but looks like I somewhat tried ;) haha!

.bloggersFALLfor // plaid.

I'm really excited for today's post because we are starting our weekly fall trend linkup! I did this last year with a bunch of my blogger friends, we had such a blast! so I thought we'd do it again. to check out last year's posts' head here :) as a recap of what we do ... each week there is a new trend each of us bloggers style .. today is PLAID! :) :) :) :) last year we did two trends to style in one look, to switch things up, we're doing a 'focus' trend and mixing in a fun trend that we like - so today the focus trend is plaid, but I paired my lace up suede flats as my other trend that I love! keep scrolling to see more of my look :) and to see how my friends styled their plaid pieces :) 

I LOVE a good plaid top, this one I bought while I was on vacation in Canada over the summer - I couldn't wait to start wearing it! ;) I gravitate towards red and navy because I just think they're so classic and honestly, two of the most flattering colors on anybody! 

since it hasn't been REALLY cold here yet, I just styled my plaid button up with an oversized cardigan, some light skinny jeans and my favorite lace up flats. the fact that they're burgundy suede doesn't hurt either ;) they're comfortable and pretty. I just advise that you don't wear them when you're out shopping ;) because if you want to try on pants or shoes - it's a nightmare to undo and retie them constantly! but they're worth it so it's okay :)

.black and a bold berry lip.

most days you can find me in a hat ;) and on the days I work, you can find me in black pants and some pop of color! professional and stylish gets tricky in fall/winter - because hello! I want to stay cozy ;) so some cute booties and a long cardigan become my besties! this lip shade is "lexie bear-y" again, a LipSense shade but that's ALL I wear these days ... I'm telling you ;) if you haven't tried it yet. you need to. it'll change your lip game forever! find out more here 

I don't think I'll be quitting cute crossbody bags anytime soon. I love the size and how versatile they are. they fit juuuuuuust what I need, I hate overpacking (even a purse!) and so a crossbody is super ideal for me. and a bit random but I have to say that I LOVE my hair curled, when it's straight all I do is play with it - so it gets greasy fast ;) yikes! I'm in dire need of getting it colored - I've got roots galore! we did family pictures last week and totally didn't make a hair appointment. so there's that. just goes to show you how it is not a priority anymore. haha. that's why I wear hats. :) nobody has to know. 

Forever 21 blouse, old // Target cardigan, old // VS Sport pants // booties, old // bag, similar here // Asos hat, last year // LipSense lipstick

it's approaching and our family hasn't thought of anything cute yet!! help!
