Style File 01.17.11

It was a very cold, grey day on Friday. I felt like I wanted to wear something that matched my surroundings. I wore this white lace dress from Modcloth, black tights and my Fur hat. I am super picky about tights but I just got these black We Love Color tights in the mail and they are by far the best black tights ever. They are so opaque, I love it!! I instantly threw out all my other black tights because they couldn’t compare. I think tights are way warmer than jeans in the winter. Cold jeans are miserable to me. Want to hear a funny story? I totally fell while I was taking these pictures. I had stopped using the remote for a second to try something and I hit the timer button and scurried back to my spot slipping on some ice. Boo.

How was everyone’s weekend? I got my first email this weekend from someone sharing a picture of them wearing the Jenloveskev dress! It was so exciting and she looked super cute! Thank you Corinne!!

  1. Pretty lady! Love that lace. And good luck with your marathon training. I love how it’s all mapped out. I’m starting my workout back today as well. It’s so hard when you have a baby, but I think it will actually give me more energy for her. xoxo

  2. Oh no your poor bruised bottom!! I hate it when I slip on ice!! Meanwhile I LOVE this outfit!! I’ve totally been eyeing off that modcloth dress, so I think I might need to get it now I see how cute it is in real life! Oh and I’m soooo with you on the we love colours tights, I switched last year, and they are like the best thing ever. THey last so well and they’re way way warmer than jeans. xoxo

  3. I am in love with those tights! I need them. I think I’ll skip right over and buy some.

    Also, I love that dress and I think you pull it off well. However, I think my biggest complaint about modcloth dresses is that some of them are so darn short! I am very tall with long legs so I am SO UNCOMFORTABLE in dresses that are short because I feel like they look really really short on my long legs. It isn’t so bad when I can wear tights or leggings under them, but I still wish the hem lines were a bit longer. But I’m not saying it looks bad on you. πŸ™‚ I like it a lot, I just wish I could be comfortable in cute dresses like that!

  4. I love your dress!

  5. Well that seals it, friend! I am ordering those tights. I put on my tights today and UGH. Not warm AND they look like pantyhose.

    Love the big fur hat with the sweet little dress. So cute.

  6. What a lovely look! I hope you didn’t hurt yourself though!
    I love opaque black tights – I even wear wool ones. Pick them over jeans any day!

  7. I love the white dress with the black tights, but the fur hat just takes it to the next level of awesome!

    I am absolutely with you on the tights v. jeans when it comes to warmth – plus skirts and dresses are a great way to avoid feeling like a total blob under a heavy winter coat.

  8. I definitely applaud you for standing out there with no coat on haha I had a pretty good weekend too… took my students on a field trip to the art museum and it was interesting to say the least haha

  9. love your fur hat!

  10. You’re wearing amazing dress! I’m in love with it πŸ™‚

  11. love the way you rock the fur hat!!

  12. GORGEOUS! love the shirt & cowl!

  13. That dress is incredible! I dont’ think I’ve ever worn a pair of tights in my life — okay, maybe when I was kid. But you make them look aweome. Especially with that dress!!

  14. I love this outfit! Absolutely beautiful. πŸ™‚ The lace, black and fur hat just go perfectly together!

  15. I tend to steer away from white in general… I feel it looks to sweet for me in most cases but there is something so perfectly edgy about white lace paired with black.

    I’ve been looking for both the perfect white lace dress (a la Courtney Love) and a replacement pair of black tights (mine favorite ones are falling apart). I’ll have to give We Love Color tights a try.

  16. Jenn. I adore your style! You have been looking so fabulous this Winter. I love the white lace dress, and the contrast of the black tights/belt -is so lovely!

  17. I’m glad you didn’t get hurt from the fall. It’s so easy to slip when doing outdoor photos.

    Your outfit is perfection. That dress is so flattering on you,

  18. oh no, you must be freezing!! But you do fit in quite nicely – like a little snow bunny πŸ™‚

  19. Love the outfit, you look fantastic! Do you have any advice for sitting in those short skirts/dresses? You pull them off so well, but whenever I wear them, I feel really awkward if I’m not standing. Thanks!

  20. Well the weather may be drab but you certainly aren’t. Gorgeous outfit! And yeah I stopped using the timer for just that reason – taking photos in natural terrain while wearing cute shoes means no hurrying, that’s for sure πŸ™‚

  21. I have been wanting to wear a white dress with black tights this winter, but unfortunately my white summer dress is a little too short for work.

  22. Love the outfit, as always! Just plain love your blog!

    I have a question, if you don’t mind…what remote do you use? I have several Canon cameras, and I’ve tried 3 different off-brand remotes (none of them work, of course LOL) so I was wondering, do you use a remote that is the same brand as your camera, or can you recommend an off-brand remote that works?

  23. Oh my gosh you must be freezing! But I totally agree that tights are warmer than jeans.

    Question about those tights – are they shiny? I can’t seem to find opaque black tights that don’t have a sheen to them.

  24. Hey Jen! Just wanted to let you know that I really, really like what you post on tumblr! When I first heard about it, I wasn’t too sure whether there would be too much on tumblr and less on but I actually enjoy reading more from you. πŸ™‚

  25. Wow look at you braving the cold!! you look fantastic.

  26. i’m so buying some we love colors tights. i’ve had the window up on my computer for a week but i think i absolutely have to now. they put the black tights i have now to shame.

  27. The dress is brilliant! The hat looks warm and you look great in it! And thanks for the info on the tights. I can never find opaque tights that don’t fall down. I have lots of we love colours but no black… yet!

  28. Jen, this is one of my favourites you’ve posted lately! The lace and fur is so lovely against the snow. And seriously, if not for Rowan’s chubby cheeks I don’t think anyone would ever knew that you just had a baby. You look amazing!

  29. a) love seychelles!
    b) love that you go outside and freeze your tush off in the name of great style files!
    c) love tights, thanks for the tip!

    PS: you look beautiful mama!

  30. Oh, my god! I love that hat! Soo cute!

  31. I LOVE We Love Colors tights! Best ever!

  32. Love the dress! it is so pretty!

  33. This dress is just perfect!
    My Mod Cloth’s favourite ever!
    But didn’t you get cold?



  34. I need to check out We Love Colors. I’m in desperate need of opaque black tights. I find that Hue, and when paired with open toes shoes, are just too sheer. Definitely hitting that up post baby. For now, it’s tights from Motherhood! Love the dress and fur hat! I need to pull mine out of the closet.

  35. Oh, this is adorable! I’ve been looking around for a good lace dress lately – they look so cute with the black tights!
