Turning Heads Linkup – Jambu Rio Sandal with Floral Top


Morning ladies!

Did you ever feel like the sun had something personal against you? I went out with the dogs for a walk, and it was sunny for about 5 minutes, and then hubby and i went out for a photoshoot and the 18 mile and hour winds,  and cold became the weather of the day.  Well, despite the cold and wind, I styled this look featuring my new Jambu Rio sandals in taupe. As a reader, you can get 20% off any full priced style using the CODE STYLISH18. 

When I looked on the Jambu site, I chose these as I love the architectural style of this blocked heel, and loved it in taupe for a sandal that would go with anything! You know Jambu’s comfort, memory foam footbed and quality. I love it! I wore these to dinner the first night in New York. They will be so versatile with jeans and dresses, as well as shorts. I have showed you several styles of new arrivals for Spring. Which are some of your favorites?

I saw this red floral poppy top, ( I have a thing for poppies) with its ruffled, cold shouldered, flowy style and fell in love! Red is in the top 3 of my favorite colors and I love the chiffon ruffles at the bottom of the top. I am a newbie with cold shoulder tops, and after wearing this, I may have to try a few more! Plus the fact that my mom told me Poppies are a Ukrainian flower and I am half Ukrainian, along with Irish and English.

My lighter wash jeans are some of the most comfortable denim ever. Old Navy 24/7 Rockstar, fit me to a tee and the softness makes them my favorite denim of choice! I added the punch of ivy green that is in the top, as my Rebecca Minkoff Love bag.

Hubby’s birthday is this week, and we are looking forward to seeing Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz fastival along with going out to dinner at Uptown. I love jazz, but I am a fan really of so many styles of music. We have some concerts planned this year, I”ll tell you about later, but lets just say, I get to let my inner rocker out!

Now, back to my Jambu shoes. You know I believe in this brand, and just love the comfort and fashionable style. Did you know that they have an all woman team of designers? I look at some shoes and think “a man must have designed those!” These Rio heels come in taupe, denim and black. The supportive base , all terrain outsole, makes them so easy to walk in, I also love the memory foam which can’t be beat! I really don’t feel like i am wearing heels, except for the fact that I am 6ft tall with them on. 🙂 Do follow me on INSTAGRAM if you don’t already, I may just be having a JAMBU giveaway in the future!


  • Kid suede upper; denim colorway is denim canvas upper
  • Partially recycled rubber All-Terra outsole
  • Memory foam footbed
  • Back zipper
  • Weight: 10.93 oz

    You look lovely Jessica! I love the poppy shirt paired with the light wash denim…and of course the Jambu shoes – how cool that the designer team is made up of all females; cool and inspiring. Love that purse matches the green in your top so perfectly! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

    I love this red and teal green! I have a top with these same colours from Anthro that I adore.

    Once it finally warms up a bit here I’ll bring it out. We have not had any signs of spring at all here. In fact there were some snow showers this afternoon!!! UGH!!! Seriously. Not. Cool.

    Thanks for the feature Jess! : )

    I really love the floral blouse on you. The colors are fabulous against your face and the red fringed earrings are dynamite. Those shoes look very comfortable and I also look for similar features. A rubber outsoke is very important for me. Have a wonderful week ahead. I finally linked up!

    Jess, That top has the sweetest details with the ruffles. I love it and it goes perfectly with your ON jeans (I had to look to see what kind they were because they look so good, I should have know they were our beloved Rockstars) Love the tassel earring too and the shoes. I know they are the start of the post, but for me the star is you!😉 Happy Tuesday!

    I think the sun has something against everyone these days as spring and warmer temps just don’t seem to want to arrive…at least in Wisconsin. I love seeing you in jeans. That top is stunning. Love the color. And those shoes! Wow! I love that they are so stylish yet I can see by looking at them how comfortable they would be.

    Loving this beautiful poppy print blouse! The red is so vibrant and eye catching and perfect for spring. I am also a huge fan of Rockstar jeans – they are just so comfortable and fit well. Your new sandals offer a lot of visual interest and I can see them being quite versatile, as well as comfy.
