What's the Buzz?

June 30, 2017

Greetings loved ones! I've been busy with my new job, enrolling in grad school, and enjoying these cooler Kansas days. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting and working with the beautiful Brenna Boat of BMB Photography. We've started a working collaboration that I'm so delighted about. Brenna is so talented and has taken her craft to the windy city for the summer. This is the first post in our collaboration series! I am so excited to share our work together and am looking forward to what BB x JMC is going to bring.
Truth be told I've never been an outfit repeater. Cue Kate from Lizzie McGuire, "Lizzie McGuire you're an outfit repeater!"

It wasn't until I decided to Marie Kondo my closet (something I don't think I'll ever stop talking about) that I made peace with myself about being an outfit repeater. In all honesty there is nothing wrong with wearing something that makes you feel good consistently so long as its clean and fits right?
 

This Victoria Beckham for Target Women's Bee Print Button Down Top has been one of my chronic outfit repeater picks. My best friend Victoria bought this top for my 22nd birthday and that's probably why I choose to wear it so much. Not only is it a whimsical spin on a button down, but it makes me feel loved too, and its pretty amazing that clothes can give you that feeling.
I love this top because other than being such a sweet gift, it's surprisingly so versatile. The mandarin collar is also unique since I don't own a lot of mandarin collar tops. I love styling it with different styles and washes of denim. Although I tie this top in a knot I could wear it tucked in too.
 
I'm in love with these yellow Burberry tie up espadrille sandals. I found them at a local thrift store for $12. There was a little damage on the inside of the sandals but they are so comfortable and stylish! I have quite a bit of yellow in my closet and these shoes are perfect when I feel like matching my shoes and dress.
I hope everyone is having an incredible June. Can you believe its almost July?! I have so much content coming to JMC that I cannot wait to share. Another virtual hug to Brenna for these incredible photos, can't wait for you to see more from our collaboration next week.

  11. I love this outfit and those Burberry shoes were such a great find! I am a bit of an outfit repeater I have to be honest. When I find something that I like I tend to wear it over and over (after washes obviously haha). I will look forward to your upcoming content! x
