This is such an exciting post for so many reasons! I am thrilled to be getting back into the blogging world, mostly so that I can stay in touch with everyone & continue to help with my favorite finds. And now that we’ve actually got some chilly weather rolling in, it’s a perfect time for all of us to get our Fall staples together☺ This jacket that I’m wearing could NOT be a better transitional piece! It looks fantastic with either with all white (since we should all be wearing white year round these days), all black, or thrown on with a little dress & OTK Boots… AND IT JUST GOT MARKED DOWN TO ALMOST HALF OFF, ON THIS WEBSITE ONLY! SO scoop it up while you can before it’s gone…! The V-neck is THE most perfect pocket tee EVER & comes in tons of colors. It’s not a bad idea to get as many white ones as you can, it’s that good. The necklace is super cool since it seems like I’m wearing three, but it’s actually just one, and it’s only $45 bucks!  I love these white flares too that I got from one of my favorite stores in New Orleans, CLOVER; they exclusively, carry this brand if you are local. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to read. I hope you’ll follow along as I post more Fall & Holiday outfit combo’s to keep you all in the know, along with upcoming trends for Holiday & this upcoming Spring so you can think about transitioning while making your current purchases…

Spacer  I’m so happy to get back into the swing of things on my blog-with this project being the first… This project was one of the most fun (and challenging) projects I’ve worked on yet and just recently wrapped up. I just loved working with Raine & George Demmas & I’m so psyched to share the before & after of the hotel lobby of Generations Hall that we converted into two new units. These will be the prototypes for the future units in the 25 unit hotel. This post is very different from my normal fashion posts & I love that because it truly shows the other aspects that The Coveted Life consists of, not just my normal fashion posts… I decided to use some of my ideas like the half wall in the bedrooms that were BRILLIANT, so that one side could double as a desk.  Along with other ideas I had been longing to explore. It’s so hard to tell from the images, but if you look at the first picture, you will see a HUGE space that needed MUCH TLC-so we decided, rather than having a huge lobby in a boutique hotel, that it would make more sense to convert the lobby into two fully functioning rooms that could be revenue generating, as apposed to just a random open space. I LOVE designing and being able to work with my home clients and administering different budgets; this project came out so fabulously, while REALLY challenging me by watching our budget for my client since it was a commercial project and budgets were a little tighter than they may be in one’s home. I worked within their budget, met deadlines, while still maintaining a new a fresh look for both units. The most gratifying part of it all was the fact that both units were rented (long term) within one week of completion. I was so happy for the owners. I owe everything to George and Raine for bringing me on-along with their contractor for putting up with me. I love and miss this project every day….  THREEheartsSM   Spacer  Photos by Michelle Preau Photography  Spacer   Spacer   Title   Spacer   #06   #08   #07   #03   #04   #10   Spacer

Faux Fur , Silk TankVegan Leather LeggingsLeather LeggingsPumpsHatShadesCrossbodyRingPearl Ear Jackets  Spacer  First, I wanted to thank everyone at Gambit & Cue Magazine for the incredibly kind piece that was released this week on The Coveted Life & my work. It’s such a great representation of my process & how I help my clients build their wardrobe while keeping them organized. So thank you Missy Wilkinson, Lee Cutrone, and everyone else at Gambit who had a part in making this happen. You can find the article on thebestofneworleans.com by searching Jenny Carr (or click here), if you’d like to read more about my services & packages. Speaking of some of my wardrobe building & “Must Have’s,” fur (or faux) & leather (or vegan) are two of my absolute favorites. It’s been a while since I’ve had time to do a photo shoot & also been a while since I’ve had time to post, but I’m super excited about this post. This outfit is a quintessential example of how I “Mix it up” & consider “Price per Wear” as Lee quoted, by wearing everything from high to low price point. I adore everything about this outfit-whether it’s my shaggy faux fur from Forever 21 to my leather leggings by Current Elliott. Every price point is totally embraced to create a totally fabulous look. THREEheartsSM

I’ve been spending so much hands-on time dressing my clients & helping them prepare for all of their parties and vacations, I haven’t had as much time to post as I’d like. But I didn’t want this Winter pass us by without doing a post on “Winter Pastels,” since I think it’s such an important trend to touch on. While I HATE that word “Trend” there are some “trends” that I still think are important to gradually incorporate into your wardrobe to make it current. And adding a pastel to your blacks, grays, ivories, and blushes to your winter garb is a great way to keep your winter looks new & fresh. A pastel coat is a perfect way to “lighten” your look this winter without having to completely change so many pieces in your entire wardrobe, while still having everything totally tie back together. You can just toss it on with your existing pieces like I did it here in my post and VOILA! You have a totally new and fresh look. My pale blue BB Dakota Coat from The Mix in Mandeville has been such a great investment this season. How great that it’s only $129????!!! You can’t beat that for a fabulous wool coat so visit The Mix pronto–and if they sell out visit my site I’ve highlighted.

Fur VestFaux Fur VestWitcher Dress Denim,  SunglassesTassel NecklaceModern Stack Ring CC SKYE Studded HandbagFloppy Fedora Spacer What I so love about this post is that the Show Me Your Mumu “Whitcher” Dress can be worn as a top or a dress, depending on the occasion (and your height☺) I absolutely LOVE this piece since I’ve already worn it so many ways. Here I’m wearing it most comfortably during daytime over denim, but you can totally wear it as a mini dress (especially if you size up)… So it’s a great investment piece… While we’re talking Mumu, you should check out the MASSIVE selection at THE MIX Mandeville–they have all of the best Mumu styles a girl could possibly ask for, so call them if you see something that you can’t live without.  And this Alice + Olivia fur vest-this one is my favorite pieces, I love a drapey cozy fur, and everyone really needs a fur vest in there wardrobe this winter so I’ve included my favorite faux in the “Shop the Post” as well (depending on your budget)… I hope this helps everyone and please snag that A + O Vest if it’s in your budget & if you don’t already have a fur vest-it will take you from now to years to come-promise!

You may want to jump on them asap so you don’t miss out. I’m posting each website, along with the sale expiration date, the percentage off, and the promotional code that you need to include at checkout….

I took an xs–and after Thanksgiving, I’m surely the farthest from an XS in most things so they are DEFINITELY forgiving. And the Houndstooth top is so easy & comfy—now this runs SUPER small, so order up AT LEAST one size. I took a large & I’m normally a medium in tops. The necklace (you’d never know) came from Aldo and was only $25 bucks! It’s such a great statement piece & would look great with anything from this Houndstooth top to a white tee. The rhinestone huggie earrings are like $4 bucks from F21 & look great back to the faux pearl statement necklace. Lastly, the stilettos—you’ve probably seen me where these a little too much (and I’m probably not going to stop). These Alice + Olivia Dina Pumps are THE BEST PUMP out there for the price. The cut is really sexy, how they show a little toe cleavage–and once I broke them in, they are so comfortable for a stiletto. The Dina pump comes in another really fabulous nude suede that I ordered for a client & that’s next on my list. Once you get into these Dina pumps you’ll be just as addicted as I am.

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and got to enjoy their long weekend! I wanted to share a really great outfit that I’ll definitely be rocking this Holiday season… Specifically because it’s such a fun way to dress down these sequin trousers. The cable knit sweater & army jacket make the pants not so Viva Las Vegas & tone them down. You can totally wear them on a casual date night like this, or toss on a white v-neck & black blazer to really dress them up. And I love how they aren’t super fitted. This trouser style is a much more comfortable style pant to wear, which I think is ALWAYS obvious to everyone around you. Not to mention it’s the most popular style right now because of it’s effortlessly cool laid-back look. To dress down this outfit, throw on a pair of cutoffs or skinny jeans & you can bring it from night to day. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the beanie! This is a must have this season for everyone! It’s so cute and a really easy way to make your outfit look super current. THREEheartsSM

Spacer There’s so many things I love about this post. First, the Chelsea Boot-it’s totally the boot of the season. I absolutely LOVE this boot… You can wear it so many ways, but this is my favorite way, with a pair of ponte pants or denim. Second, the shades-the color’s fabulous-and CAN YOU BELIEVE THEY’RE $30 BUCKS????!!! They are oh so fabulous and pick up whatever color you’re wearing. And lastly, the pearls-I’m loving all of these pearl earring trends out there right now. Everything to the earcuffs-to the double posts. So these are all there must haves this winter. Hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving if I don’t post before…☺ THREEheartsSM

Spacer I thought this post was important since so many gals don’t know which direction to go with their wardrobe when this cold weather rolls in… I thought it would be good ideas to divvy everything up by trends that aren’t really trends anymore. Don’t you remember when you thought skinny jeans made you looked crazy (so not true) or when sequins were only for Vegas (again so not true)…? So Here’s 5 wardrobe staples that maybe a few years (or months) ago we thought were trends, but have turned into “must haves” that we don’t see going anywhere anytime soon. All total investment pieces so feel good about pulling the trigger on any of these… Spacer title Spacer Image#9 Image#1 Image#10 Image#2 Image#4 Image#5 Image#6 Spacer

Spacer Ok so I’ve really been wanting to incorporate this look into my lazy hair day repertoire for a long time. I think it’s such a cute look, and a break from the typical floppy hat or the summer straw fedora. I hadn’t had a time lately until recently to play with this look, trying to figure out how to still look girly & not look my little brother going to a football game. I feel like I nailed it here and I’ll give you some tips how. Just remember to wear a few girly pieces with your outfit… Like a floral top, some sassy heels, bright lips, SOMETHING that speaks super feminine… For those of you that are like me (that may just need a push or some help), just go for it–I’m so happy I broke out of my comfort hat zone! When you’re a mom on the go (I think most can relate), you’re always looking for ways to look cute when your hair just isn’t cooperating, since you don’t have the time to spend on it like you did before baby. And the fashion baseball cap is just another great way to still look fantastic when you’re in a pinch for time… THREEheartsSM
