1 sweater, 3 ways

Guys, I’m seriously blushing —I’m lucky enough to be in Redbook again… twice! As part of Redbook’s 1 Piece, 3 Women series, you can see me modeling a hot pink sweater in the March issue. Not gonna lie, when I learned that the sweater was hot pink, I was a bit worried… how would I make this look like me? I solved this by pairing it with distressed boyfriend jeans (a staple in my wardrobe), sexy suede heels to show off my tattoos, and a neutral scarf. The look is one that feels fun and flirty, but also pretty casual.

This was one of my favorite outtakes from the shoot. I am just so happy that my tattoos get to show!

Plus, I was also in the January book showing how to rock a boldly patterned blouse. Check out that feature on Redbook here.

This is big guys… Redbook magazine featured me in their “One Piece, Three Women” series in their December issue! I’m truly honored to be a part of this series where I show how I’d style a bejeweled black satin peplum top. While this piece isn’t normally in my fashion wheelhouse, I made it all my own with polka dot jeans and hot pink satin heels! Be sure to check out the interview here, as well as how the other ladies in the series styled the garment.

Plus, just for fun… here are a few outtakes from our street style-inspired shoot!

I’ve been so busy here at Camp Jojotastic lately! Writing for Anthology Magazine is such a fun outlet for me creatively. I absolutely love to use it as an opportunity to showcase tons of talented people and their different artforms. Here are a few of my posts lately.

Above: These watercolors by Malissa Ryder are absolutely stunning. I find the simplicity of them to be utterly captivating.

I have been lucky enough to be interviewed on HouseBeautiful.com today! In addition, I am also guest pinning for House Beautiful over on our board “Brights on White.” They asked me which trend I was feelin’ the most for home decor lately and the idea came so easily to me: bright punches of color with loads of crisp, optic white. It’s the height of summer and all I want is to surround myself with floaty white linens and modern, graphic pops of color. The white totally helps to tone down the intensity of color, don’t you think? Head on over to Pinterest to see more of our board and to get inspired!
