Babe In Black.

Hello, Hello!

It’s a gloomy, rainy, cold day here in Iowa and I’m sick. This weekend hasn’t been very nice outside either so being sick couldn’t have come at a better time but that being said, I hope I’m better before work on monday morning! Though I hope you’ve all had a great weekend so far (:

So switching things up, everyone loves a black dress and can I say always a sliming color! This is another look shot by Aly Carroll of Aly Carroll Photography @ http://www.alycarroll.com

(This would be the perfect party outfit or any formal event)

Seriously in love with this dress and collar necklace! The vail is a fun twist along with the cheetah print skinny belt & the shoes are unique but still classy. This was my one of my favorite looks & such fun wear too.

Also I’m in love with http://www.lookbook.nu

-If your a fashion lover n blogger like me, I highly suggest making a lookbook account. Its perfect for finding out about new style trends or making up your own. When I cant find something to wear I sometimes go and look for inspiration, even if I don’t have the same article of clothing in the photo it’s still a reference to fashion and the perfect outfit day to day.

It definitely helps (:

You can find me on the site too @ http://lookbook.nu/carlyjane6590

Wellllll, thats all for today!

Summer Is Almost Here..

Hey Loves!

Summer is almost here! …Or so I’m wishing! Took these photos with my gal-pal Aly out at Waterworks park here in Iowa yesterday and it looks like a great day by the photos but it was really freezing out at a high of 38 degrees with wind! & did I mention it’s snowing here today? Crazy, I know..but anything for an amazing photo!

I’ve been recently getting back into modeling so coming up you will see a lot of professional photos Aly has taken of me (: I’m super excited & I hope you all love them too!

(You can check out more of Aly’s photography @ her website : http://www.alycarroll.com or on Facebook @ Aly Carroll Photography)

Now lets talk about my outfit : It’s perfect for a spring to summer switch, jeans and a light airy top will keep your comfortable but still cute. the earrings are fun and give this simple look something else and to make it your own you can add more accessories like I did with the hat. I’m in love with flouncey hats like this, I can imagine wearing it all summer to be honest.

Anywhoooo, I’ve got to get ready for work. I’m sure on this dreary day tons of people will be wanting coffee from starbucks….not. haha well, who knows but I will keep you updated with some more photos soon!

Lots of love,

Definitely Something Else.




Hey There Loves!

Semi-beautiful day here in Iowa, in the high 50’s! You know I couldn’t resist taking a few outfit photos and getting outside, with a cool breeze I thought shorts would be fun and paired with one of my favorite tee’s and light cardigan..it’s the perfect outfit (:

I actually made these shorts last summer! bought them originally in the yellow and bleached them vertically and turned them yellow and white, half and half. I also added some studs for some extra texture.

Definitely something different when you see this outfit but, honestly thats what I’m all about. Be yourself.

I hope everyone is having a great wednesday! It’s the middle of the week people, two more day until the weekend! & it can’t come soon enough..this weekend is supposed to be in the high 70’s holllla!!
I also happen to have Saturday and Sunday off from work so I will be taking full advantage of this beautiful weekend to comeeee.

Check back for more photos (:

Something New.

Wow! 3 months, I can’t say I’ve been up to much except work and hanging out but I will fill you in on the most exciting thing that has happened…I got my first paid modeling job! eeeeeee! A week ago I met up with Natalie and Jessica (the designer and photographer) and modeled her accessories, ie : scarves, handbags and jewelry. It was awesome! One of my family friends recommended me to Natalie and boom, magic was made! This was of course lots of fun and a great experience, I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity (:

Here are a few pictures from the shoot :


(soooo in love with this plum infinity scarf)


You can check out more of her accessories and order some too, if you like (: @ http://www.stansberrydesign.com/ & photography By: La Ti Da Photography, you can look up more of her photos on Facebook.

I’m sorry I’ve been such a terrible blogger, I’m going to make more of an effort so please check back in a few days! I would also like to add tonight’s sunset was breath-taking, it’s almost unreal how the sky can be pink, orange and blue mixed with purple all at the same time. It’s like a tye dye in the sky (: so perfect in so many ways! I hope everyone has had a good Tuesday, I’m running on lots of caffeine right now and very little sleep haha I suppose the perks of working at a coffee placeeeee.

peace & rock on my love bugs..

Black Beauties.

Today has been such a beautiful day!

Anna and I thought it would be fun to take a drive down some of the gravel roads near our house this afternoon. It was a lovely temp. of 77 degrees here, living in Iowa in the middle of august corn fields are all around and bound to be a great photo opportunity!

 On our journey we stopped and took some photos (:


Wow! I’m in love with the way these photos turned out (: Anna’s dress fits her so perfectly and I can’t get enough of the lace. Funny how this used to be our mothers dress from back in her day and today it is still in style!

Anna used a necklace as a belt for a fun new twist & I added the skull necklace for more of an edgy vibe. Both can help lift up any dress or outfit!

(Both of our dresses are vintage)

Hope you’ve all had a great Monday!
