Happy Friday! I’ve got a few Friday Favorites to share with you, but first, a little update about the blog. (Nothing bad, I promise!) So, you might have noticed there haven’t been many “1 item, 5 ways” or “How to Wear” posts in quite a while. The site I used to create those outfit photo collages shut down and I’m still trying to figure out another site that will do what I need it to do! If I can’t figure it out soon I’ll just jump into creating different types of photos but I just wanted to give you a heads up! I know the blog has been pretty heavy on beauty over the last year (it’s much quicker to write about!), but I want to get back into more fashion posts soon! Who knows, maybe I’ll even do some outfit photos of myself one of these days! (We’ll see…) Anyway, back to Friday Favorites!

1. This dress
I bought this white and black maxi a few years ago at Kohl’s, it was one of the designer collaborations they did, and I love, love, love it!
I’ve had more compliments on this dress than probably anything else I have. It was such a spur of the moment purchase and one I’ve gotten so much use of. I almost didn’t buy it because it was mostly white and I thought it would wash me out. Turns out, I don’t care! The point of sharing this dress that I love that is no longer for sale? Take a chance! Try a new pattern, a bold color, something different than your normal look. You might be surprised.
If you’re stuck thinking about white and black maxi dresses now, here are a few that might do the trick! (And they range in price from $28 to $128!)

2. Gifts from Garnier!
A couple of months back we had a bit of a discussion on the JK Style Facebook page about the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water I love so much. I moved the conversation over to Twitter a bit and the lovely people at Garnier saw my tweet and sent me some new products to try!
Use this as a reminder to tell the brands you love that you love them! (Not just to get free stuff, but hey, I’ll take it!) So far I’ve used the Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser and plan to use the Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask and Leave-On Peel this weekend! My hair is also feeling a little dry lately (post-pregnancy hair is weird), so I think I’ll give this oil a try too! I’ve tried a sample of their Whole Blends shampoo and conditioner and really liked it! I’ll let you all know what I think about all of them once I’ve tried them!
3. This brand
Brent and I watch Food Network Star every summer and one of the contestants this season, Jessica Tom is one of my favorites. I honestly don’t remember anything about what she’s made (They’re only on episode two and I’m usually doing other things while we watch it.), BUT, I love her clothes! Actually it was Brent who first pointed out a cool shirt she was wearing and so far I’ve liked (and would wear) every single thing I’ve seen her in! She had on this cool jumpsuit this week and I was dying to know where it came from. What does a person do in 2018 when they want to know what someone was wearing? Take it to social media, of course! Specifically, Twitter. I tweeted Jessica and she let me know the brand of the jumpsuit and the sash she was wearing.
The jumpsuit was Lou & Grey, and while it doesn’t look like it’s available anymore, I did see a few other things that interested me! My only knowledge of this brand is their collaboration with LOFT stores, but it’s been fun to see what else they carry!
Their pieces are so easy and look really comfortable too! I think my favorite right now might be the green pajama set, so cute!
I hope you’ve got fun weekend plans! I’ll see you on Monday!
