Video Style File 02.22.11

Are you ready for something very exciting ( I mean super awkward?) Well, it’s a first here on jenloveskev. The first ever video blog post! It is something I plan on doing way more often. I think it will be really fun and can see it fitting in well with what I already post about. I hope to do a lot more “how to put an outfit together” posts based off of outfits that get photographed for style files and will def. take suggestions on videos of things you would like to see. Maybe even Last Nights Dinner video posts?? This is the first one so it can only get better from here! I need a better camera and better editing skills and maybe better bow hunting skills too. (napoleon dynamite anyone?)

So in this first video I share a little of my closet and the makings of the style file that was just posted. Eeek Here goes nothing….

*note to self don’t start of your videos with a crazy face! So embarrassing.

Hey are we friends on twitter yet? I hope so!

  1. Could you be any cuter?! You were so nervous about the video, but you seem really at ease and it was fun to watch. And Rowan amps the cuteness up to 11, of course. Love it, more videos in the future I hope!

  2. I arrived at work after having about 3 hours sleep and have to say you really made my morning!! To be so organised with your outfits and look after gorgeous Rowan must be tough. You make being a mum look totally adorable!

  3. yay! I love the video..and good thing you had that 5 min start on me at Savers, Cause i woud have scooped that blazer too!

  4. I am a recent follower and I just love your style. I could never pull it off! You are absolutely adorable and Rowan is darling! Keep it up!

  5. Such a cute video! You’re stinking adorable. I look forward to more videos from you!

  6. Ahh, you are so cute! I love that you dance around while trying out your outfits!

  7. Your video is so cute, love the music sequence!

  8. Super cute!

  9. You did good!!! Ha, and you were worried about vloging.. pshh!
    Rowan, however, stole the show.

  10. you and rowan are both adorable – loved watching! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Do you really talk like that???? Really? You are right, you do have a baby voice

  12. Eeeeek! So cute. I just want to pinch her cheeks! Love the video. Keep them coming!

  13. You did such a great job for this being your first video! It’s always a little weird to hear bloggers that I read every day talking, but you were just as cute and personable as I expected. And Rowan is literally one of the cutest babies I have ever seen! No exaggeration!

  14. oh. my. goodness.

    I AM DYINGGGGGG over here. this is melting my heart and I LOVE seeing you take us through your daily dressing! Now every time I see your photos I can envision this. You are just darling and the OPPOSITE of awkward. Wonderful job!! YOUR BRAVER than I am :)) xoxo Kim

    I loved this video! Super cute! What song was playing in the background? I loved it, and must download it as soon as possible!

  16. i love the outfit, love the video, love the baby ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for sharing!

  17. I love the video!! You should definately do some more video’s of how you pick out your outfits, its so great to see how your choices evolve into the final outfit! Rowan looked soo cute in the video :).

  18. Holly Mae •

    Super duper cute!!! Look forward to more video posts from you and your number one girly!

  19. omg Jen, can’t get over the cuteness! You are so brave doing this, I think I would die being in front of a camera talking, you did a wonderful job! I love hearing bloggers speak because they never sound how I think they will! oh and Rowan is just the cutest!

  20. you are so cute! thanks for sharing!

  21. This was so fun to see. I loved seeing you as a mommy and seeing your room and your closet. Wow, if you didn’t know who I am I’d sound like a crazy stalker haha! But very nice outfit and sweet blazer you found. I don’t have the patience to look through racks of things at thrift stores. So good for you. And sorry to say this but Rowan was stealing the lime light a bit there… I was very distracted. Little Anthony was watching the video with me, he said, “look she has a cute little baby just like us!”

  22. I love this video…you are way more adorable then i imagined! I’ve been toying with the idea of doing vblogs so this gives me some inspiration!

    Rowan is so stinkin’ cute!

  23. yay! that was so cute! i love the music montage!

  24. Such a wonderful idea…I loved it! Rowan is even cuter in video than in pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Okay, you are so cute! And I can totally hear your canadian accent! Woo Go Canada! Rowan is adorable….how much is she weighing? She looks close to what Cadence weighed!

  26. oh she is the cutest thing in the world! those chubby cheeks are to die for. and i love your little outfit dances ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. Oh, you’re so cute! You remind me of my mom in old home videos. The late 80s/early 90s plaid and biggish glasses could also be contributing factors. They do say nostalgia comes in waves of 20 years…

  28. Very fun video! Love the music and this is exactly how I decide what to wear! ๐Ÿ™‚ I find ONE thing I really want to wear and build an outfit (as best I can!) around that item.

    This is very encouraging for me as I hope to do some daily style blogging of my own…very soon!

    Thanks for sharing!!!

  29. Your both adorable ๐Ÿ™‚ Any tips on how to organize a much smaller closet?? I currently have a walk in closet that looks to be your size all to myself (it’s Heaven) but in a few weeks will be moving to an old little bungalow and the closet I will have for my clothes is about 1/4th of the size I have now!!

  30. This was adorable (you and Rowan!). I think this will be a great feature ๐Ÿ™‚ Yay for video!

  31. Oh gosh, I loved that! You and Rowan need to do more videos together. She is getting so big!

  32. Yay! Thank you so much for doing this! Its so fun and exciting to see bloggers in real time, and their closets ๐Ÿ™‚ And you do make being a mum look so adorable and fun!

    Rowan is definitely one of the cutest babies ever! Now I want to eat her up, too!! I love how she is kicking her chunky little leg in the bathroom ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you have a wonderful evening, love!

  33. long time reader •

    you have the cutest voice!

  34. It’s so fun hearing what bloggers sound like!! Anyways, you did a great video and your baby’s cameos were the best. She’s such a sweet little girl!! I hope her little tooth feels better soon:)

  35. Great video Jenn, had to come back and check it out! And you + Rowan, are so CUTE! Great to see your closet as well and a get a “behind the scenes” glimpse of how you put your outfits together. Enjoy your night! xx veronika

  36. What is the name of that song and who is it buy (the french one. If it’s not french I’m going to feel dumb).

    Your outfit process is similar to mine… But I think i’m more haphazard about it.

  37. Love the video! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, I can totally see how you would be a great teacher – You just have a way about you – Approachable, informative – Yep!

  38. I really love this video! Can’t wait for more!

  39. yay! i love this! you and Rowan are totally adorable! I’m excited to see more of your videos! very fun and inspiring! now off to organize my closet ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Yay! Love the video! Definitely a success ๐Ÿ™‚ It adds such a personal touch!

  41. SO CUTE! haha. I loved the little shuffles you did when you were trying clothes on. ๐Ÿ˜€

  42. You’re adorable, loved seeing this, especially with little Rowan making an appearance!

  43. This is so cute! I love putting a voice to your words! And there was nothing to worry about – can’t wait to see more vlogs from you (two)! Rowan is so adorable…I couldn’t stop staring at her happy little face and the way she was bobbing her leg all casually there at the end. So cute!

  44. That’s it, you’re the cutest. So is that Rowan. The weirdest thing…I bought those same shoes today before I saw your outfit post or this post. I’m glad to see you look so good in them!

  45. I’ll give this video two thumbs up (one for you and one for Rowan)! Can’t wait for more ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. aw, I love that! video posts are so fun – its like you get to see a different side of somebody that you read a lot! thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. love the video! you are such a doll….

  48. Enjoyed your video! I go through a similar process when choosing outfits, too, including putting on 2 pairs of tights, then choosing my favorite leg!

  49. This video is nothing short of precious. I loooove the music you added, and Rowan is by far your cutest accessory to that outfit!


    loved the video, hope to see more in the future!

  51. love the video! you are super cute and it was fun to see the behind the scene action that goes into an outfit. I’m the same way with my outfits, pick one piece and build from there.

    Can’t wait to see what other videos you do in the future!

  52. Oh. My. Gosh.

    You are adorable. Seriously.

    Love the music! Who was it?

  53. Ashley J •

    I loved your first ever video post! Your accent is the cutest thing I have ever heard and Rowen is precious!

  54. I am lovin’ it.
    I want to reach through the screen and squeeze your precious babe!
    Post more vlogs! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  55. I don’t usually watch vlogs because they’re so time-consuming, but for some strange reason I decided to watch yours today and boy am I glad I did. It was SUPER cute and slightly informative. I really liked how you composed it.

    Also, you have the cutest voice, haha. Not what I was expecting. Maybe it’s a stereotype, but I always expect Americans to have Texas accents, even though I KNOW that’s not true. So cute though, really!

  56. so i’m not really a baby person in general, but oh my god your baby is the most adorable!!! and i love the video, i feel like i know your personality much better.

  57. Oh Rowan is sooooooo pretty! I love her cheeks and her little gooing, I also love your outfit, you look so lovely. =D

  58. Haha love this!!! Adorable times a million plus Rowan. Perfect. keep video blogging!!!!!

  59. Oh this is so cute!! It’s always interesting to be able to put a voice on a face.

  60. Yay! Love the video. It’s like we’ve officially met. Well, not really. I like to pretend that Jennifer Aniston and I are friends too. Keep up the great posts.

  61. awww, i like you!

  62. you are adorable! your video is adorable! and rowan, well, she’s adorable! share more videos!

  63. Awesome first video! Can’t wait to see more. It’s a great change of pace (not that you even needed one) and a fun, more in-depth look at what you post. What song did you use? It’s so fun!

  64. I LOVED this!! You are too cute!
    I totally figure out my outfits the same way!
    I’ve been thinking about doing a video post forever now..but I never know what I would talk about…this one is SO good!! Did you use a tri-pod and video camera?? And what did you use to edit it? I have a program on my computer, but I can only record straight onto in from the web cam…so if I want to leave the computer room I’d have to purchase a different editing software, but I don’t feel it’s worth it if I rarely make videos!

  65. so darn cute! i can’t wait to see even more videos from you and Miss Rowan! It’s always nice to put a voice with who you read on a daily basis ๐Ÿ™‚

  66. Seriously cute video!!! I loved it!!!! And omg..Rowan has got to be the most beautiful baby girl I’ve ever seen. Honestly! She’s ADORABLE!!!!

  67. Ah you’re just too adorable. It’s so sweet to see how you’ve evolved in the year i’ve been reading your blog. I absolutely love the blog. People always sound different to what you imagine, don’t you think? I’m not saying you sound weird or anything but i’m always surprised when i hear peoples voices – like Kate Moss, you hardly ever hear her speak. And when do it’s like, oh right, that’s what she sounds like. I think also cos i’m based in London i just assume everyone has the same accent as me (i obviously know this isn’t the case, but it’s how my brain works!) so when i hear you speak with your cute little american accent is just adds to your adorableness. Happy Wednesday chica xxx

  68. Love the video! Everyone’s right… you are adorable! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love how these videos give us an insight of how you pick and outfit! When I see fashion blog pictures, I usually don’t see the process behind, and it’s pretty interesting! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You and Rowan are beautiful. She looks so much like Kev! Great vlog, Jen!

  70. More videos please! ๐Ÿ˜€ This was great! You seem like such a natural on the camera. Must be from teaching. And Rowan was such an awesome bonus! Thanks for sharing!
    xx, Katrina

  76. Keep the videos coming! I watched this with my 7 month old daughter and she squealed every time she saw Rowan.

  77. That was awesome and super cute! I loved to see the “normality” of your closet, hearing your voice (which I thought was very different) and your playing with Rowan’s arms in the first minutes. The song was fantastic!!!

  78. I loved this video! What is the name of that great song in the background while you are styling your outfit? ~Jenn

  85. for the gabillionth time you are so cute! rowan is a natural. i love that you try on two tights at once my fiance always laughs at me when i do that but it really speeds up the process.

  86. Jenn, you did a great job!

  87. Love it love it love it! Outfit, baby and you, plus your place is so neat!

  96. jen – this was so fun to watch! it really showed shows an extra layer of your personality and how much fun you have with your wardrobe…and it’s always fun to spy on behind the scenes. especially when we learn that you use target hangers just like we do. or i do…

    Hi Jen Lula! Rowan is THE cutest most adorable little angel EVER! It was so fun to watch since it feels like I “know” you from reading your blog and also fun to be able to hear your voice in my head now as I read your words. =)

  107. I couldn’t tell you a word you said in that video because I was so enamored with Rowan’s CHEEKS. Oh my, look at those things, I could pinch and nuzzle and kiss them all day!

  108. Jen, this video was AWESOME! I enjoyed it SO much! You and Rowan are both adorable! And it made my day that you put a French song in it!

  109. could you and Rowan be any cuter?!? impossible. love the video and your helpful tips! can’t wait for more.

  114. The song is Ce Jeu by Yelle!

  115. I love this video! It was very helpful and I couldn’t get over how precious Rowan is! Thanks for sharing it!

  116. You are both so cute! I loved your dancing/outfit picking…and I swoon over slightly-chubby baby girls in leggings (I have one myself!).

    This is a bit of a late comment, but what a great video! Besides the fact that I want my closet to be like yours when it grows up, my favorite thing was actually finding out what your voice sounds like, haha. I always wonder that about bloggers. I’d love to see more videos!

  121. That was adorable! I hope you continue to post videos! Also, is there a way that I can search through the recipes that you’ve posted? I know I’ve seen some good ones and now I’m trying to search for them again ๐Ÿ™‚
