.gray + a good hair day.

I love the ruffle trend that has been so popular this year, I really hope it always stays in style ;) because as someone who dresses more on the feminine side, ruffles fit right in my wardrobe!

this gray sweater I got at a local boutique - I was invited to a special bloggers night and literally 4 of us walked out with it that night ;) THAT'S how you know it's good! but really though, I liked that the ruffle was on the front of the top, some tops I've seen lately have really chunky or majorly detailed sleeves but then they don't fit well under jackets or coats and when it's as cold as it has been here - coats are non negotiable - you wear the coat! when I was taking pictures for this outfit it was about 45 degrees, this past week we've been in the 20's - YIKES! that's so cold! it definitely makes me not want to go anywhere.

I can't help but really appreciate my own hair in these photos ;) I don't know why I was having such a great hair day - maybe it was the fabulous hat?! ;) no but really. I've been asked a lot about how I curl my hair (video here) and which products I use so I'll link them below :) 

shampoo // conditioner // purple shampoo // straightener, found on amazon, it's SO old // curling iron // blow dryer, brand GHD // dry shampoo // hairspray

some basics about my hair care routine : 

- I don't wash my hair everyday, I wash it about every 3-4 days

- I only use dry shampoo on the last day before I wash my hair
 (I try to put it in before bed so it absorbs all night long)

- I try to use my purple shampoo every washing - so that's about twice a week

- I rarely brush my hair, embarrassing maybe ;) but really, I brush it maybe once a week, I blow dry it after I shower and just go right into either straightening or curling it - only when it's dry and a day old do I usually brush through it

feel free to ask any more hair questions below in the comments and I'll be happy to answer them :) these are just some of the basics and most commonly asked - I might be doing a post on my hair journey sometime lol I have had everything from a platinum pixie to long black hair, to straight across bangs, to orange, red and everything in between - the hair I have currently is the longest I've ever had a basic look or color - it's been so long since I've done anything drastic :)
 what do you think? I usually say 'hair is just hair, it grows back' but as I've gotten older I've really loved what I've had - 'basic blonde' ;) and I feel it suits me, but I want to know ... 
what's been your favorite hair on yourself? 

I really loved being dressed in darker neutrals, all grays and blacks. these over the knee boots are by far my favorites! I find they stay up on my legs REALLY well and the fit is really flattering :) (linked below) they're only $40 too - which blows my mind - because they're so great!

thanks for stopping by!

and what do you think of the ruffles trend? would you wear them?

.macy's beauty gala.

I'm so excited today to share a bit about what I was up to on Saturday :) I met up with my friend Kristy who is a personal stylist at the Macy's (Fashion Place mall) here in Utah. She is so talented and really goes ALL out to make your shopping experience amazing! She and I have worked together in retail before and we've been friends for a few years now and I just adore her. 

Kristy creates a personal experience by selecting complete head to toe looks that you come and try on, she works with you during your appointment and recommends options for multiple outfits and gives you the "tools" aka the right clothes ;) that will fit your budget, lifestyle and whatever will give you the most versatility in your wardrobe :) honestly she has like my dream job ;) 

here's a snap of the girls in their more casual outfits.
 I LOVE all the lace and floral details mixed with the edgy style. 

Kristy knows trends and she knows brands, she was styling another cute gal during the Beauty Gala and it was so fun to see her in action. anyone, any age, any style, any occasion can utilize Kristy's skills and expertise :) her services are free and she does an amazing job, keeping the styling session fun and ALL about YOU! :) 

DJ CHASSIS was the DJ for the beauty gala and she was so much fun! 
how pretty is she?! who else is obsessed with her braids?! ;)

I loved meeting her and partying in the store :) 

meet the girls HeatherMya and Melissa 

Kristy went for a fun and playful way to style these girls up for school dances, being freshmen they're starting high school and what a fun stage of life that is! I am loving the fancy dresses with boots! it really plays up the youthfulness and keeps it practical to dance and have a good time!

the girls got their makeup done at the Beauty Gala and I was so inspired by all the new trends and fabulous makeup products that are out there! I could really have a lot of fun in the makeup department too ;) 

how stunning right?! treat yourself and enjoy the whole experience!
Kristy offers the fashion side of things (talk about getting styled head to toe!) 
then head downstairs and get your glam on ;) 

this is Lucy, she is incredible! I had so much fun talking to her and she's amazing at what she does. Lucy was my brow artist at the Benefit brow bar :) and I LOVE how my brows turned out, she waxed them for me AND filled them in! making me look extra beautiful ;) 

what Lucy did first was 'map' my brows out, she wouldn't put wax where we had drawn out the eyebrows and I thought this idea was genius! I've never had a brow artist do this before but it makes so much sense, you get a perfect look this way :) 

right after the wax ;) 

filled in! I love them and yet they still look full and natural :) 

here's a little video sharing more information of the event and what Kristy does in her personal stylist position at Macy's :) I had a fabulous experience and am super excited because Kristy and I are going to be teaming up more throughout 2018 - sharing trends, giving styling tips, she's even going to style me! I can't even wait! 

if you're interested in being styled get in contact with me, jensynjeppsen@gmail.com or you can contact Kristy directly @ 385.347.3060 ext 2245 or kristy.burton@macys.com :)

thanks so much for reading :) and watching ;) I hope you have an amazing week!
can you believe we're 2 weeks away from Christmas??!!

.pretty olive heels.

jacket // tee // denim // heels 

if you've even just barely glanced at my blog I bet you could tell that I LOVE SHOES. I feel like it's no secret and I always talk about them, you know how everyone has their 'thing' that they just buy a lot of and are obsessed over?! mine is definitely shoes. without a doubt! 

I had the fun opportunity to shoot some pics with Makenzie :) I've worked with her before on this post while back and she is amazing! I was excited when she wanted to meet up and take some pictures for the local Valley Fair mall :) of course we hit up one of my favorites ;) Payless has some awesome shoes for everyone in the family! Navi kept choosing styles she liked, and of course wanted to be like 'mommy' and was trying them on too :) I love my little shopping mini me ;) 

I went for a pair of olive suede pumps because why not?! they're gorgeous, simple and classic. I have nothing like them and the quality surprised me! these heels are comfortable and stylish! :) I used to pair high heels with my jeans for date night all the time when Nash and I dated, since having kids I don't wear heels out as much as I used to - that is going to change. in 2018 I'm going to make it a priority to date my husband and I'll wear these heels darn it! ;) ;) date nights are important and doing and wearing what makes you happy is important too :) 

thanks for reading friends!

other shoes I'm loving from Payless :)
