Steal My Emmys Style

It was an incredible honor and exciting moment for me to stand by the cast and crew for Grease: Live at the Emmys. Getting to be a part of such a fantastically talented group was so special to me, and winning four Emmy Awards was icing on the cake. With all the excitement surrounding the night, the question of what to wear was a big one. I absolutely love the Zuhair Murad dress I wore. I felt elegant, sexy, confident, and most importantly, like myself!

I was very lucky to have my friend and stylist Anita Patrickson find this stunning couture gown for my very special night. She’s kind of like a fairy godmother, come to think of it!

So many of you commented on my photos, wanting to know more details about the dress. A few mentioned people mentioned they love the look but don’t know how to pull off a white dress. Anita shares her story from that night and offers some great tips for getting your white gown on below.

To take this look down a few notches for a fancy brunch or dinner party, I found some beautiful pieces that have a similar style in white and nude. If you “steal” my style, let me know by tagging! I want to see!

How To Transition Your Closet From Summer To Fall

Saying adios to summer means it’s time to start tucking away our sunshine-y wardrobe to make way for fall wear. (A moment of silence, please.) Before you do a total seasonal switch out, think about some of the pieces you’ve been wearing and how they can transition to cooler weather and warmer tones.

I’m not quite ready to let go of some of my favorite summer trends. Chokers have been all over the place lately, looking super cute with tank tops and breezy dresses. I’m keeping these little guys around for fall, pairing them with sweaters, collared shirts, denim jackets and more. Mixing and matching seasonal styles is the best way to keep your favorite summer looks around for a little while longer, and I’m definitely going to be taking advantage of this sneaky fashion tactic!

I’ve Got Your Back (Pack)

We’ve come a long way from the days of the basic canvas backpacks. Fashion designers have finally jumped on board to have our back! Stores that used to only carry handbags, clutches and wallets in the accessories departments are stocking up on backpacks in all shapes, sizes and styles.

There’s really no excuse not to choose a bag that represents your personal style. Some people might think it’s silly to invest in anything special because it’s just a bag to haul your books from class to class. If that were true, then what’s the point in wearing a purse you love? Might as well carry around a paper bag, right? Wrong! A backpack is an accessory you’re going to wear day in and day out. Why not love it?

I love all these options. The quilted leather (faux leather is just as fancy in my opinion) and black floral are very on trend for fall and winter, plus they’ll go with almost any outfit. Click on any of the images below for more information.

Ask Jules: Party With Confidence

I receive so many emails from readers who are uncomfortable with their body and let it prevent them from living their lives to the fullest. Trust me when I say I have my own hang ups. Everyone does!! So I understand the desire to hide out when an opportunity arises that will expose an insecurity leaving you feeling vulnerable. Tamar’s email inspired me and I hope my reply will inspire some of you. If you have additional advice on this topic, please chime in on the comments below!

Hi Julianne,

I’m from the Netherlands so I’m sorry if my grammar isn’t right. Since it’s summer and it’s getting warm outside, a lot of my friends throw their birthday parties at the swimming pool. I love to swim, that’s not the problem, but I hate my body. I don’t feel confident in my bikini at all.

I actually don’t want to go because of that, but I also don’t want to miss my friends birthday. I don’t know what to do. Can you help me?

Thank you,
Tamar

DIY: Rainbow Nail Art

How could anyone feel blue when they’ve got a rainbow right at their fingertips? Am I right or am I right? I’m a firm believer in dressing for the mood you want to be in. If I’m feeling low energy and want to perk myself up, I’ll put on a yellow dress and let it brighten my mood. I figure the same rule must apply to our nails!

This colorful DIY by nail artist and industry expert Tracylee Percival makes me want to bust out some jazz hands. If you’re not feeling the rainbow and want to go with your own hues, Tracylee suggests choosing colors that are complimentary in color and tone. Continue Reading

Summer Style On The Move

Whether I’m packing for a trip or planning out a jam-packed day, choosing versatile clothes and accessories allows me to enjoy the journey rather than worry about having extra things on hand to change into. I like to keep things as low maintenance as possible. To me that means packing less by wearing styles that can fit into any scenario — while being fashion forward and comfortable, of course.

Besides my sunscreen, which I never leave the house without no matter the time of year, here is a list of my double duty must haves that will take you from the beach, to brunch, out to dinner, and back again! Continue Reading

Hello? Summer Is Calling!

Every couple of months, we change out our accessories to coincide with a new season. Boots get swapped
for sandals. Turtlenecks get tucked away so the tank tops can come out. Dark, moody colors take a back
seat so bright, happy colors can shine. Since we shake up all our other accessories, why not switch the one we use all day, every day?

Phone cases have come a long way since smartphones hit the scene. No matter what theme or style you’re
looking for, there’s a case for you. To go with my seasonal color palette (and mood!), I was in search of a fun summer-themed case.

I found so many perfect designs it was impossible to pick just one!

I Need A Vacation $40 | Flamingo’s Paradise $24 | Shiny Stripes Print $32 | Classic Camper $40 | Ridin’ In My Caddy $32 | Tropicana $35 | Otterbox Floral $40 | Pineapple Lane $20 | Welcome to the Bahamas $35 | Call Wading $35 | The Sound of Musing $35 | Zero Gravity Pinned Forever $32

Which style is screaming to go home with you??

Jumpsuit Mania

The chicest choice for a summer ensemble is most definitely the jumpsuit. A jumpsuit is the older, cool cousin to another favorite of mine, the romper (which is more casual). Jumpsuits are good for both work and play because they can easily stay with you from day to night. Not to mention getting ready with a one-
piece is a breeze given all you have left to do is accessorize.
