CAMOUFLAGE

JQ6A5311
Hi guys! Hope your week has been great? It is hard to believe that February is already here. I am looking forward to warm summer weather and I can't wait to meet my little munchkin. Everyday is like a count down to our new beginning. Our quiet home will definitely not be quiet anymore. We are very excited! I have been browsing different baby items. Right now, I am trying to decide between an Orbits stroller or Strokker Stroller. Has anyone used any of these strollers? Any recommendations?

In my prior post, I mentioned how cold it has been. The weather gradually warmed up yesterday and today was not bad either. It felt like spring--sunny and warm and I drove home with the car windows down. I hope it stays warm for the Super Bowl weekend while I cheer on the Ravens.

For this post, I wore a camouflage pant...casual and fun. The pant did not require a waist band or an extension belt due to the stretchy nature of the fabric. I paired the pant with a burgundy sweater (same sweater worn here) for a touch of color. I love how the burgundy color pops up amidst the calm fall tones - not too bright or flashy. I chose neutral pumps and a coat to complete the outfit.

BLUE

JQ6A5287

Hi everyone! Lately, it has been very cold with a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain. The weather makes me dream of being on the beach on a warm day (Miami?)

Unlike my pants, this skirt still fits perfectly; it is not easy finding cute pants for pregnant women. I went to a maternity shop in the mall with my husband and their offerings were not my style. My hubby laughed when I tried on some of the outfits and I think I will be contacting my tailor to make some pants with elastic waists with great prints.  

On a brighter note, I am enjoying all the pampering from my husband, the baby flutters and having a growing belly :) May be I will do a video on my experience so far and answer any questions you may have.

I added a touch of color to this outfit with the navy and red skirt complimented with a cobalt blazer from Zara. Keeping with the whole blue theme and adding a little spunk, I wore my Miu Miu sling-backs and a statement necklace. The fitted white shirt adds a touch of class.

Mustard & Leopard

JQ6A5149
Hi everyone! Hope your week has been great. I squeezed in some outfit shots prior to visiting a friend the other day. Lately, outfit decisions have been pretty tough as my bump keeps increasing on a daily basis. My pants no longer fit and I am enjoying the whole transformation. Learning and understanding my pregnant body has been interesting.  

In this post, I am wearing a stylish and comfortable Zara harem pants which I have had for years. Keeping it simple, I chose a v-neck tee from Forever 21. I always stock up on white v-neck tees for versatility as I can pair them with different items.  For a brighter look, I wore my mustard Zara blazer and paired it with my Michael Kors bag which has become my go-to bag. I wore a beige stiletto pumps to complete the look.

Current Obsession: Fendi 2Jours

Just like the Prada Saffiano tote, something that captures me about this Fendi 2Jours Medium Mixed-Media Tote is the simplicity of the structure. It is a classy bag worth investing in and it comes in different colors. Personally, I love the two colored pairs above. Definitely something I will love to own.
You can check it out (here & here)

What do you think? What is your current bag obseession?

Oh Mickey!

JQ6A4966
Hi everyone! I had an eventful and fun weekend. First, congratulations to the Baltimore Ravens for their victory and emergence as the AFC champions. I watched the game at a friend’s house and we cheered for the Ravens while catching up on long overdue gists. I had the day off from work on Monday which enabled me to watch the memorable inauguration ceremony of President Barack Obama. He made so many remarkable statements during his speech and one of my favorites is..."We must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized...." … - a very powerful statement and call to duty. I wish the president the very best in his second term.

For this post, I wanted to wear something bright with a subtle overall look thus my decision to wear the pants and sweater. For weeks, I have had these JCrew print pants and to accommodate my growing bump and waistline, I discovered something called 'belly belt‘. The “belly belt” helps extend the buckle of my pant and it can be used with any pair of jeans or pants. For a fun look, I wore my Forever 21 'Mickey Mouse' sweater. Adding an edge to the outfit without taking over the statement pieces, I wore my beige Valentino rockstud pumps.

Throwback :: Costa Rica Style

IMG_4483
After watching the travel channel for the majority the night, I decided to go through my picture archvies  of my trip to Costa Rica last year. For some reason, I never blogged about it. Now, remembering about Costa Rica and how beautiful it is makes me miss the beautiful country. Hubby and I love travel; I wonder what this year holds and our next destinations. I will love to visit Hawaii since it was one of the locations we were trying to decide on visiting before settling in on Costa Rica.

Le Fric C'est Chic

JQ6A4732JQ6A4496

Hi beautiful people! Hope you are all doing great. The week has been great and I am feeling stronger each day despite the constant change in weather. The weather at times felt like spring and we have had a couple of windy, breezy and rainy days.


I took advantage of a beautiful spring-like weather to wear my "Le Fric C'est Chic" t-shirt. I bought the t-shirt last December in Canada while shopping with Ciaa. The simplicity and writings on the shirt caught my attention. Keeping the outfit simple, casual and comfortable for my growing waist line, I wore my Zara Herringbone trousers, which has an elastic waist. I love the leather pocket and zip details. I completed the look with my favorite beige coat for a touch of sophistication.

Peplum & Checkers

jadore-fashion.com sitted
Hi everyone! Hope your day is going well. Thank you so much for the sweet comments and wishes regarding our baby news. I was overwhelmed with emotions reading all your comments here, on instagram, twitter and on facebook. I truly feel I have a family in this blog world. Your love keeps me going even when I feel extremely tired and thanks a lot for your continued support. I am also looking forward to see how my style will evolve and I am more than ready to get through this winter and store all my winter clothes..LOL! Thank goodness, the weather has been like spring for the past couple of days...interesting!

In this post, I am wearing a flared bottom peplum top. I really like the flared bottom and I styled this outfit with a focus on the pants which is a mix of red, navy and other stripes. The navy color of the peplum top gives it a warm and subtle feeling. In line with the same tone, I completed the outfit with black pumps and a black bag.

Plus One

JQ6A4753
I have pondered on so many ways on how to share this news...our news and joy. No words can quantify our excitement. Months, weeks and days have gone by, making it tougher to keep this happy secret. Yes, I have seen several speculating comments here and on my instagram (@jadorefashion) and twitter accounts :). Now, I am finally confirming your speculations - this summer, a little bundle of joy will be joining our family. My husband and I are beyond excited and cannot wait. It is definitely a wonderful experience and we are forever grateful to God. This is the best gift we could ask for in 2013.

I am in tears as I share this amazing news with you guys...Thank you so much for your tremendous support.

Lots of Love,

Black & White

JQ6A4283

Hi everyone! The week seems to be moving quite fast. It feels like we greeted each other "Happy New Year" yesterday and today, it is already January 9th...time waits for no one. I need to start working on my “to do list” for the year, which includes setting up and organizing a new closet space. This should have been completed last year but I kept procrastinating. During the weekend, hubby and I finally made it to IKEA and we got the fixtures for my new closet space. Whenever I visit IKEA, I am always tempted to buy unnecessary things because I am a bit obsessed with interior decorations. Right now, I am on the search for a zebra print rug (I need you help). I am really excited about my new closet space and I promise to share pictures once the installation guys are done. 

Lately, I have been leaning towards black and white combinations as shown in this post. Styling black and white is always easy and I don't think you can really go wrong with such mixes. In this post, I wore a Zara black and white print pants. You will not believe how long I have had the pants – since January 2012! That was the first time I wore it-- I have no idea why I waited so long. :) I also wore my tuxedo-inspired white blouse with black collar from Forever 21 and I completed the look with my favorite black pumps by Louboutin.

Modern Vintage

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? I am slowing adjusting to my normal schedule after a nice holiday break in Canada. I wish I could rewind to the Christmas holiday because I had an awesome time with family and was able to relax.

You probably saw a glimpse of this outfit in the post here with my hubby and now, I am posting the full outfit details of the Virgos Lounge dress. I am intrigued by the vintage inspired embroidery and the intricate details which is unique to the label's designs. If you recall, I have also worn some other pieces from their collection here and here. For this outfit, I chose to wear neutral pumps to tone down the mustard embellished dress while showing the full length of the dress.

Current Obsession: Aquazzura 'Amazon' Lace Up Bootie


Once I discovered the Aquazzura shoes last year, I couldn't stop my obsession about the style and cut of their shoes especially this "Aquazzura Amazon Lace Up Bootie" - a great pair to kick off spring and summer 2013. I have seen different colors including a tan version of the lace booties here; but I can't get enough of this wild colored pair.

What do you think? Get it here 

Cheers to a great weekend!

A New Year...2013


uzogbenga094-2233227532-Ouzogbenga104-2233233683-O

Happy New Year Everyone! Hope you had a wonderful holiday and hope you enjoyed your New Year celebration. I spent the Christmas break in Canada with family. I got a much needed rest while eating great Nepali food prepared by my sister-in-law. She made a huge Christmas dinner which I posted on my instagram (@jadorefashion). On New Year’s Day, after resting from a beautiful watch night service in church, hubby and I visited my parents. My mum prepared lunch and dinner and I ate so much that when we got home, I headed straight to bed...a lovely way to start 2013 I must say.

How was your holiday? What did you do for the New Year?
