Jeans & A Leopard Print Tee | Travel in Style

A leopard print t-shirt, ankle skimming skinny jeans, tieks metallic flats, and a cool winter coat, my travel essentials when on a plane or walking around a mild wintry climate. Marrakech winter is mildly warm during the day and very cold at night, so we had to wear layers the entire time throughout our two week stay. I wore this outfit a couple of those days, first on the plane and then for our cooking class. I felt comfy, put together, and effortless. Our cooking class was an all day adventure which ended with several hours on a beautiful rooftop, complete with sunshine and plenty of Moroccan wine!

Travel In Style: Marrakech

Traveling in style through MArrakech is hard to do when everything they make is beautiful! This shift dress & skinny jean combo not only kept me warm from the mild "winter weather" of Marrakech but also kept me covered and respecting the laws of the land. I wore my comfy copper tieks (amazing flats) most of the trip which not only helped with all of the walking but played an integral part in keeping my stylish vibe going! 
 More Marrakech (not just my outfits ;) coming soon!

Happy Heart Day

Valentines Day means this blazer DIY that I'm wearing, red, pink, hearts, skirts, and anything else super feminine I feel like wearing. It also means the end to my Birthday "week", this week I turned 28, cut my own hair, it needed a good 2.5 inches off and then proceeded to box-dye my tresses. After our time in Marrakech the past two weeks my hair was beyond fried from being sun-bleached. I found the closest match to my natural color before the sun turns it red. So there's that.
As you can see in the photos below, the clouds are in which means I am going to go finish making the heart shaped pasta I found at Lidl (our local grocer) and add an unhealthy amount of pasta sauce and cheese. Cheers to delicious heart shaped food and candy!!

Red Blazer Pom Pom | Valentines Day DIY

because life is more fun with poms poms. I am back from Marrakech as of yesterday and am feeling refreshed, inspired, and a little unprepared for the cold British weather. This pom pom trim makes me happy, and since I've been in an all black everything mood in wintry England, I decided to add some red to my outfit in honor of it being February! Last Valentines day I brought you this fab DIY sequined cocktail hat, and wanted to share another wearable, quirky DIY! It is super easy, fun, and creates more spunk to your blazer. You can follow use this DIY on anything! I'm going to pom bomb our flat...

Pom-Pom Blazer DIY by Jade Rose Blog
1) Gather your supplies, I am providing you with a sew/ no sew option below (you're welcome).
2.) Pin your trim under the lapel of your blazer, have the trim go as far up the blazer as you would like, but be sure to start at the bottom of the lapel near the buttons.
3.) Baste stitch (by sewing machine or by hand) I prefer using the sewing machine as it makes the process much quicker! Especially with my new Brother sewing machine! This particular machine is actually really great for me as it's the perfect size and weight for traveling, so if I really wanted to sew while on the go, I can now!
4.) Trim off any extra pieces, and tada!
*No Sew: Use Hollywood sticky tape for super temporary accent. See the differences below*
Outfit with this blazer coming next week! Just in time for some Valentines Day inspo.
