Trend Alert: Minty Green Nails!

One of the most major nail colors right now is minty green. Earlier this month on our buying trip in NYC, we saw this hot hue on multitudes of trendy girls!

Check out Jupe customer Julie rocking the color in our Dolce Vita Ontario Sandal. She is sporting Essie's "Greenport" and it's one of the best renditions of the pastel trend out there! So take heed fashionistas: go pastel or go home!

Summer-to-Fall Transition Looks!

Need some fresh ideas to take your summer wardrobe right into fall? Then try one of these wardrobe-reusing style tactics-->

Image #1: Layer away! By pairing this summery tan belt and gold/black necklace with fall's hottest looks--fur, stripes, and olive green--it allows you to take your sunny day pieces perfectly into the autumn season!

Image #2: The pink folded-over top you see is actually a mini sundress! Throwing on a skirt over a dress and adding a cardigan and chunky beaded necklace is a perfect way to reuse any of your summer frocks--and in style!

Carson Street Style

Ok so we are obsessed with this ensemble! This uber trendy girl strolled into the store today, and we just had to snap a photo of her! I mean seriously, how effortlessly chic does she look? Her vintage designer scarf adds an element of sophistication to her otherwise causal oversized tank and bandeau top underneath. The studded bag pulls together the other metallic detailing that she is rocking on her embellished sandals and chain statement necklace. Loves it!

Does this outfit say "back to school"?

Its that time of year again! Time to pack everything up and begin making the transition from summer to school.  Although you have many priorities such as buying your books, setting up your apartment/dorm, and making sure your class schedule looks right, one very important thing that needs to be done is to find the perfect "first day of class" outfit.  Finding this perfect outfit is key because first impressions are proven to have a huge impact on how people will perceive you for the rest of the time they know you. (I learned that fact in psychology class last year) A great outfit could very possibly start a conversation which as a result could be the start of a great new relationship. Also, on the first day you will have time to tragically plan an outfit, which becomes harder to do later in the year when the weather gets colder and sweat pants look more and more inviting.  So, I have picked out an outfit that i personally would wear to my first day of class to help spark some ideas.

I personally would go more casual to class than dressy.  This striped tank pairs perfectly with the adorable skirt to form the ultimate "first day of class" outfit.  Both stripes and zippers are very in right now, so you will be sure to be stylish.    I would pair this outfit with a cool pair of sandals.

I fell in love with this jacket. Adding something like it to this outfit would be a good idea.  It will keep you warm and also make you look great :) A simple necklace also adds to the look.

BB DAKOTA Nautical Stripe Top!

Nautical is so major for fall! It was all over the F/W 2010 runway, being debuted by designers such as Miu Miu, Chanel, and Ralph Lauren. The trend showed up in navy blazers, striped tops, wide leg pants, and red preppy accessories. Can't afford designer duds but want to look tres current? Jupe has exactly what you need!

This little number from BB Dakota is right on trend! It is super versatile, as it can be worn with denim but is also long enough to rock with leggings or tights. For a super chic look, try pairing it with cuffed khaki pants, a thick brown belt, gold bangles or hoops, and tan wedge heels.

To really capture the nautical look, wear with red accessories—for instance a purse, bangles, or even heels. Adding a pop of bright color will really make your look stand out.
