JoJo Style Challenge Day 5

JoJo Style Challenge

Floral Friday

This is it. The dramatic conclusion of my JoJo Style Challenge. On Monday we learned that JoJo gave her final rose to Jordan Rodgers (unsurprisingly), but who is worthy of my final rose now that my style journey has come to an end?  *Insert montage of me pacing and crying, trying to decide who to choose as my tears are punctuated by dramatic music.*

Nah, this decision isn’t that hard. I choose all of you! My friends, family, social media followers, Internet strangers–I have so appreciated all of your support. I know it doesn’t seem like a lot, but taking the time to read my work–to even be aware of my work–validates the creative energy I put into this project. My dream is to be a writer, and I feel like this series has gotten me one step further to achieving that goal. (If not, at least I had a great time and got some writing practice.)

JoJo Style Challenge Day 4

JoJo Style Challenge

Happy Thursday, friends! The weekend is only a day away which means my week-long JoJo Style Challenge is coming to end. Try not to get too choked about it. Everything must come to an end; and so it goes. But I’ve still got two new looks to discuss. So let’s get started with today’s post, shall we?

In episode 7, JoJo and her harem of super fit, perfectly coiffed men headed to Buenos Aires. JoJo finally gave Alex a one-on-one date. After a long, awkward car ride down a seemingly never-ending road they arrived at a ranch. While there, Alex was forced by producers voluntarily dressed up as a gaucho, though he looked more like a gondolier, especially next to JoJo in her modern-ranch chic ensemble. (Can this be a thing?)

JoJo Style Challenge Day 3

JoJo Style Challenge

Leather & Lace

I can’t believe we’re already on day 3 of my JoJo Style Challenge! For day 1 I recreated JoJo’s fall-friendly ensemble from episode 2. Day 2 featured two casual looks from dates she had with Luke Pell. (One of my favorite contestants, I thought featuring two outfits was the least I could do to recognize this smoldering, All-American Texan.) Today, I’m vamping it up a bit by trying out a group-date look JoJo flaunted in episode 3.

Who wore it better?

I believe JoJo wore this outfit to the evening group date held after that awkward sex-story-sharing date. You know, the one where Wells talks about farting during a threesome, Daniel admits to getting a little 50 Shades of Grey in a past relationship, and Chad both shoves Evan and *audible gasp* rips his shirt after Evan, a Nashville-based penis doctor, says that steroid use can negatively affect one’s ability to perform. (Guys, do you think he’s talking about Chad??) Continue reading

JoJo Style Challenge Day 2

Day 2.1

2-4-1 Tuesday!

You’re not imagining things, folks. Today, I’ll be featuring two of JoJo’s looks for the price of one!

For those of you new to the blog–welcome! I’m on day two of my self-imposed “JoJo Style Challenge.” Every day this week I will attempt to channel my style guru–JoJo Fletcher from this season of The Bachelorette. Yesterday, I recreated her comfy casual look from episode two. Today, I am featuring outfits she wore on two different one-on-one dates with Luke Pell. (My top pick for next season’s Bachelor. Though, I don’t really want him to go on the show because I want him all to myself. Amirite, ladies??).

Also, can we just take a moment to acknowledge how Luke is in a near constant state of smoldering? Someone get that man a glass of milk! (Meanwhile, I’m going to take a cold shower.)

JoJo Style Challenge Day 1

“Slay, Queen JoJo, Slay!”

If you visited me on a Monday night, during Miss JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette, chances are you would catch me yelling this at my TV. (Or texting it to my mom, who’s also a big Bachelor[ette] fan.) I’ve always enjoyed the female-led iteration of The Bachelor franchise (minus the slut-shaming during Katilyn’s season). To me, The Bachelorette is what dreams are made of–dating more than one guy at a time, romantic and unique dates with beautiful backdrops, sexy (often shirtless) men vying for your attention. Sign me up!

As a long-time Bachelor-franchise fan one of my favorite episode-viewing activities (besides drinking–duh) is getting style inspiration from The Bachelorettes. I will follow every season’s lead on Instagram and screenshot my favorite looks. Of the twelve seasons, JoJo’s wardrobe has been one of my favorites. Her make-up and style are simple, accessible, and feminine. Even her rose ceremony and cocktail party looks are chic and timeless, but with modern touches (for example: shoulder cutouts, crop tops and high-waist bottoms). So, I say again: slay, queen JoJo, slay. Continue reading
