taking the hassles out of tassels- how to style tassel jewelry

…Razzle ‘n’ a tassel ‘n’ a flash a little light…

oh hey!  Me again already!  Aren’t you lucky???  Ok, maybe not, but as promised, posting once again, for another style challenge I’m co-hosting with several stylish ladies on Instagram.  This time the challenge is also a **giveaway**!! Yes, we ALL love giveaways, right?!?  This one is a $100 gift card to Kay and Star.  Julie and Jordan are a mom and daughter team who make beautiful jewelry!  Who wouldn’t want to win a chance to grab some free goods from their Etsy store??  To enter, you need to follow me @loopyscorpio on Instagram, find the original post for the giveaway, follow the other ladies as well as @kayandstar, and do what the instructions say to do!  It’s soooo easy!  As far as the style challenge goes, you just wear any tassel jewelry you have for the week of November 2-7th and use the #ThisIsHowITassel every time you post a tassel-donned outfit!  Each time you post is another chance to win the gift card!

I know sometimes there are hassles with tassels.  Some do not really know what to wear them with or how to wear them.  I’ve searched out some past photos of me wearing tassels on Instagram and I thought maybe those pics would provide some tips on how to style your tassels!! So bear with me, some of these shots are super old, but you’ll get the idea…

As you will see, I’m quite a sucker for tassels…

hangin’ & stylin’ with La Senorita Jolie

Fellow Fashionistas!!  Listen up!  I’ve got some exciting things to show/tell you!!

I’ve teamed up with La Senorita Jolie, a wonderful direct sales company that sells casual clothing and stainless steel jewelry.  The talented Jennifer Dixon, CEO of La Senorita Jolie joined forces with the creative Diane Prince, the former CEO of Winnie & Kat .  Their pieces as made in the USA and abroad; the items that originally came from Winnie & Kat were all made in the USA in Malibu, CA.

They were cool enough to send me of their awesome clothes to try on and review!  I back them all the way! Their clothes are comfortable enough to wear for every day stuff and versatile enough to wear to the office.

More importantly, though, if you keep reading, you’ll find out how YOU can purchase their clothes/jewelry at a discount, get FREE stuff,  AND make money !!!!!

They have a wide array of products for all ages, shapes, and sizes; they have clothes in XS-4XL.  Aren’t into clothes?  Well they have jewelry too!  There’s literally something for everyone at La Senorita Jolie! So go shopping!!  When you find something you love,  you can enjoy FREE SHIPPING,  this week ONLY, with code: KMJBHC 

They sent me four (4) pieces of clothing and an inspirational cuff bracelet to check out.  I have styled each item a couple of different ways to give you some ideas, but as versatile as each item is, there are so many different combinations you could come up with on your own.

First up, I introduce to you the Africa top in Berry.  It comes in other colors as well.  Berry is a gorgeous mauve-y/maroon color that will be great for fall!  I combined it with a winter white skirt and a contrasting teal necklace.  And of course, leopard shoes…

Right now I would freeze to death in this outfit because apparently summer decided to exit Indiana yesterday.  Don’t know if it will be back, but I could always throw on a jacket and some booties with this.  See…?  Great for layering and very versatile!

Check out how cute this top really is!!  Isn’t the detail gorgeous?? It can be as casual as a tee, but with a little added bling!

Top:  La Senorita Jolie Africa in Berry, $42

Now this is more like it for fall temps here in the midwest.  I paired this cute top with jeans and a oatmeal colored moto jacket.  You could literally wear this top with ANYTHING.

Do you love fashion?  Would like some extra money in your pocket?   Read on to find out how!!

Next up is probably my favorite from the collaboration.  It’s called Bobbi, in case you need one for yourself…which I think you probably do 🙂  I got it just in time for the cooler weather to take hold.  I LOVE this sweatshirt.  Not only is it adorable in all its polka dotted glory, but it’s super soft and warm.  It is fleece-lined and not flimsy at all. The color is sort of a washed navy or gray; either way, it’s neutral.

I’m into the pattern-mixing thing, so I wore mine with red and white stripes and some mustard shoes.  Oh and I threw in a Diet Coke and some sunnies…and maybe a few lighthouses in the background.

Sweatshirt: La Senorita Jolie Bobbi, $75

I have a difficult time dressing completely casual because I’m so used to dressing for work.  You’ll rarely see me in a tee and jeans and sweatshirt and tennies.  It just doesn’t happen.  So I threw on a peplum and some “dressier” shoes, but this sweatshirt isn’t your typical casual sweatshirt anyway, so it’s adorable no matter what you pair it with.

and again, a Diet Coke and cute straw as an accessory…

Here, I dressed it up a just a bit.  I wore it with a burgundy dress made to look like a skirt (see here where I’ve done that before), mustard tank, and dark brown shoeties…

What else is so fab about these clothes is that they are machine washable!  This is great news for all the moms out there!  Also, they are easy to layer as I’ve shown you, understated, and affordable. They are great quality and classic pieces you’ll have in your wardrobe for a very long time.  They can be worn so many different ways.

Everyone seems to love camo these days.  I’m no different.  I think it’s a neutral and I wear it with anything and everything!  Here, I stayed with the pattern mixing theme and wore my camo lightweight Kate jacket with stripes and a statement necklace.

And finally I will show you the Georgina tunic.  It comes in black or charcoal.  Either would be fab for soooo many outfits!!  It’s uber comfy and I didn’t want to take it off.  You could wear this for a night out, bare shoulders and all.  I wore mine with casual shoes but you could dress it up a lot more with heels!

or you could wear it for errand running, coffee drinking, or brunch eating, etc…

I opted to put a cute leopard tank under it for the more casual look, with gray leggings, ruffled socks, and boots.
