Jaime is a born and bred Bostonian with a serious sense of style. Her blog, La Vie… J’aime is chock full of fun and fashionable DIYs and style inspiration. As summer enters its last leg, we chatted with Jaime about what’s left in summer style, her personal style inspiration, and more. Read on for the whole scoop!
Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you begin blogging?
I started blogging in June 2009 when the company I was working for at the time was going through a management transition. It was a small company, and I didn’t know if I would have a job. I was just getting into reading blogs, and thought, “I’ll write one!” I did keep my job and the blog too.
Describe your style in 3 words.
Casual, trendy but classic.
Where do you get your style inspiration?
Blogs and celebrities whose style I admire.
What is the hottest summer style you’re seeing right now?
Nautical, of course, always comes back… and I hop on that “trend”. I cannot get enough of stripes.
Does living in Boston influence your style?
It definitely does! As much as we east-coasters can complain about the winter & snow I cannot imagine living somewhere where boots aren’t a necessity during the months of November-March. New England can be pretty preppy so it’s fun to play around with that style, especially in the summer.
What is your go-to summer accessory?
White skinny cropped jeans.
What’s one trend you think people should stay away from?
I think any trend can be one to stay away from depending on your personal style/aesthetic and body type. Just because it’s on trend, doesn’t mean it has to work for you.
What is your favorite piece of jewelry you own and why?
I have a dainty gold with solitaire diamond necklace that was my grandma’s. She passed away when I was 16, and I got a lot of her jewelry. At the time, I didn’t like anything gold, but now I love this necklace and it’s a staple piece of mine.
What’s the hottest hue of the summer and what are you doing with it?
Neon is really fun. I like doing neon nails or maybe a tank top. I typically don’t go full on.
What is your favorite piece from EvesAddiction.com this summer?
The sterling silver monogram necklace caught my eye… I have had one on my wish list!
