The Style FIles: If This Life is One Act

I love Jason Mraz. There, I said it. Forget Drake and 'Lil Wayne (for a moment): Jason Mraz's songs are "YOLO"-worthy. He- along with a bunch of my favorite artists- released a new album this week and it's amazing. "Live in the Moment" is such a cute song and forces listeners to live their lives a little more.

Style Spiration: Constance Jablonski
Lately, I've been so interested in off-duty model style. There's this chic, insouciant je ne sais quoi when they're not strutting their stuff down the runway. Constance Jablonski has this knack for dressing effortlessly chic and put together at the same time. Fashion juxtaposition? I like.

There's no better way to rock "nonchalant style" than a military jacket.  I love how she  throws this jacket over a pretty basic outfit during Paris FashionWeek. The messy bouffant and feminine makeup gives this outfit a "fresh off the runway" spin. As for those leather detailled pants...I'd pass. (Photo Cred)
This parka screams wintry chic. Pairing this show-stopper with a completely black outfit is fantastic and forces you to focus on the parka. (Photo Cred)
Off-duty, downtown chic? I think so! Rocking a blazer during the summer is a style DO. The mixture of tan and whites really makes the navy pop. Plus, navy is such a sick alternative to black. Double plus, I really like those sandals. (Photo Cred)
The Weekly
  • Emily Blunt at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Five Year Engagement  (Jason Wu): Blunt is on trend with this super retro Jason Wu dess. But don't write this look off as classic just yet: the Alice + Olivia heels give this look a funky, modern twist. Although I don't love matchy-matchy, this look works because the splash of green on the bodice, the earrings, and the pumps all havee an appropriate distance from each other. Ergo, it's not overbearing and works. Her slicked back hair and the bright lip finish off this feminine look.
  • Emily Blunt at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Your Sister's Sister (Michael Kors): I think every fashionista should put "rock colored lace" on their bucket lists. The dainty lace creates this fun juxtaposition with the loud cherry red. The hemline has the potential of looking a bit matronly; however, the platform sandals and messy updo loosen this look up.
  • Kate Beckinsale at the Total Recall press event in Cancun (J. Mendel): Leave it to Beckinsale to wear something uber sexy in the classiest way possible. I love the neck of the dress as well as the asymmetrical slit. The nude pump as well as the natural makeup proves that Beckinsale isn't just wearing something to look hot- she knows what she's doing.
