I was at a party about a year ago and met a cute girl named Jo. She is a friend of a friend and we hit it off right away with our love of fashion and women supporting women.
Jo de la Rosa and I vowed to stay in touch and work together soon. Fast-forward a year later and Jo is launching a blog and we thought it would be a great idea to collaborate. She is already killing it on instagram and now is gonna make the full transition to a full-time fashion and lifestyle blogger. I am always down to share my tips and tricks I have learned in the past few years, so Jo and I got together for lunch to chat all things social media and blog and shot a few photos together. We obviously coordinated the night before and since she loves simple, classic pieces and I am more about color, we met in the middle by styling a white tee different ways – who doesn’t love a good white tee?! Jo tends to live in jeans and tees and usually opts for a darker palette, while I do love classic staple pieces, but I love mixing in bright colors and prints. Here’s how we each styled a white tee for summer. You can shop Jo’s look on her Instagram Stories – she’s @jodelarosaa. She plans to launch her blog in the coming months and then you will be able to shop all her looks there so stay tuned!
For now, I thought I would share a little about Jo – I find her to be so refreshing and open and very interesting, and not just because she was on one of my favorite shows, ahem, Real Housewives of OC!!! This girl is the ultimate girl’s girl who is honest and genuine and is all about lifting others up and supporting her friends. I love it and can’t wait to see what she does with her blog and social media in the next year. I know it’s gonna be big! Without further ado, here are three things you might not know about Jo:
- I was one of the original cast members on the first season of Real Housewives of Orange County
- I still sleep with a teddy bear my dad gave me when I was 13 named Ranger Carlos.
- Two of my biggest passions are songwriting and taking dance classes at my dance studio.
