Today's Everyday Fashion: Tall Drink of OJ





































Doesn't this look make you crave orange juice? I think the expression "tall drink of water" should be changed to "tall drink of OJ." I loved this picture of Leighton Meester on Gossip Girl when a fan posted it on my Facebook page last week, and I've been looking forward to re-creating it ever since. So perfectly sunny, so perfectly citrus - I think it could be the new mascot for Florida oranges! Do you love Gossip Girl? What are your favorite TV shows for style inspiration? (I'm a huge Sex and the City fan, and I also love Fiona's style on Burn Notice.)

  4. This looks fantastic! I love all the bright cheery colors!

    I like the new Beverly Hills 90210 for some fashion inspiration.  They have a 90210 line at Bebe, even though it's out of my price range!

  6. I love Katherine Hiegl's style in 'Life As We Know It'.

    Your style, in comparison to the inspiration pics that you use, are always my favorite.

  11. Sarah's style on Chuck kicks some major butt - as does she! But I'd never get away with wearing a lot of it where I work. I also like Britta and Annie's styles on Community, even though they're so different. Annie's is a bit more girly and revealing than what I could get away with where I work, but Britta's tough and post-feminist is right on!

  12. I LOVE this color combination! It's bright, but not too bright. So cute!

  14. I have that same J.Crew skirt! I like how you paired it with the orange top. I get my style inspiration from "What Not to Wear." It's the perfect TV show--there's always a happy ending! :)

    Sage, would love to get your thoughts on my makeover show! You can watch the pilot at the link below, and we are shooting 12 more episodes this summer. I love "What Not to Wear" but I feel like the stories are really extreme and hard to relate to. My show focuses on answering questions for the everyday woman and using what she already has in her closet (rather than throwing everything out and starting over). Let me know what you think! http://www.izonorlando.com/2011/05/js-everyday-fashion-season-1-pilot-colleen/

    I love the floral skirt. I think it would look better with a white tank top though; but that's just my opinion.

    This skirt looks great with a white tank top (I wore it that way here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.120092174683194.18614.120030604689351#!/photo.php?fbid=139662206059524&set=a.120092174683194.18614.120030604689351&type=1&theater). This is probably the 10th time I've worn this skirt though - so I wouldn't want to wear a white tank every time. This pairing made me feel like I owned a brand new skirt! I'm all about finding new ways of getting creative with what you already own.

  18. The white top looks nice, but the orange top really pops and makes this a great summer outfit.

  19. I absolutely love this outfit and have been dying to find some yellow heels. One day I'll walk into a store and see my perfect pair, I just know it.

    Alexi, thank you so much! :-) My watch is technically a men's watch, isn't that funny? The link goes to the exact same watch I have. The women's version felt too dainty to me!

  23. Do you watch the show gossip girl? I know you've had pictures of Leighton and Blake in real life, but what about some of the fashion in the show? I usually love what they wear but have no idea how to tone it down and make it wearable.

  24. Well you look great, either way!!

  26. J I am loving your summer looks this year!! Thought of you this past weekend when I snagged a few deals at The Limited on some pencil skirts. ;) 

    Also, enjoyed your work attire guide you posted recently. You happened to post it right before I went out on a shopping mission for new work clothes.
