If you have been with me from the beginning, you may know a little bit about my journey.. I started a blog called “The Vintage Society” back in 2007 and things took off from there. In 2009, I stalled…. got busy with styling and such and felt the name didn’t suit me anymore.. so I started up “B. Jones Style” in 2010.
When I started B. Jones Style, I played with posting only inspiration, trends and outfit ideas and I took my personal style out of the equation.. but all I kept hearing was.. “We want to see what you are wearing!”.. so it was back to posting personal style photos along with inspirations, shopping tips and everything else that I love.
During my “personal style” hiatus I snapped some iphone images just for fun, and recently came across them. What struck me was how much I still loved all the things I wore back then.. still wearing high waist anything, colors and prints, penny loafers, maxi skirts, hats, hair this and hair that.
So.. I thought I would let you travel back a bit and see a B. Jones Style retrospective.
Thanks for making the journey of the last four years so fabulous!

I absolutely love mixing prints… so when I was asked to be part of Kohl’s Chaps Capri campaign .. I was instantly drawn to a black and white checkered pair.
The Chaps Capri is essential and classic for spring, and I loved the idea of styling them up with bold pops of color and prints.
All styled up.. they were ready for a day down by the bay.. walking cobblestone streets, sipping coffee with my man and watching the sailboats glide by.. spring day perfection!
Now for some fun..
Kohl‘s is gifting two of my readers with $125 gift cards.. all you have to do is leave a comment below..

I love a good excuse to dress up myself and my house and this weekend was the perfect opportunity… it was all about party panache.. I hosted and toasted.. and it was fabulous.

It was a gloriously toasty day in Cali!
Inspired by the toasty weather I wore something soft, floaty and sheer.

I loved the Victorian Romance that pranced down the Ralph Lauren runway.. and it was their collection that inspired my look.
Lace, ruffles and western touches.
