We’ve come to rely on our phones for just about everything: emails, GPS, reminders, to-do lists, alarm, texts, social media updates, conference calls, picture taking, video recording, Siri..
 I mean, the list goes on and on. I’m the first to admit that I’m always on my phone-
 well most of the time… work related more than half the time– 
but at times I wish life was much simpler without phones. We sometimes forget the littlest things like
how to pick up the phone to say “hi, i miss you” instead of texting it or we forget how to write
a nice handwritten letter or thank you note instead of expressing it via text or email.
Phones + technology can be addicting- trust I know; instagram? pinterest? texting much?- but I don’t think we should lose touch with being in touch the ol’ fashion way.
I know, I have a hard time remembering to stay off my phone when I’m with my loved ones while at dinner or enjoying a get together sometimes…but I’ve learned that enjoying that moment and giving
whoever you’re with your full attention WITHOUT being on your phone, will be a memory you
won’t forget…
so think about the next time you’re out with friends, family, boyfriend or someone you care about and 
try to NOT touch your phone once until you get home..
you’ll remember that moment completely.
Sorry for the rambling- just thought of that when I was putting together this post. Real topic!

  7. Steffy Comment #7

    very edgy but chic look. do you have a new haircut? looks great! anyway, i agree on that phone thing. lately i’ve been very obsessive about my phone cause technology has improved so fast, everythings so easy now if you have a phone. but yeah, i can feel the difference when i’m not using my phone a day that often. everythings kinda more easy, relaxed.

    You’re absolutely right…I think not texting while having coffee with your friend is a nice way to say – I care about you. It shows both love and respect to concentrate on the person you’re with.

  28. Ri(t)ch Styles Comment #28

    True That!!! :) Those moments are far more worth than the moments we spend on the phone…


  29. Grace Comment #29

    I love this outfit, and yes I struggle staying off my phone all the time! My boyfriend has to stop me sometimes at dinners. I noticed at fashion week, all the bloggers were just standing around on their phones all the time. So much social networking to be done!

  31. Domonique Wilson Comment #31

    First of all, adore this outfit! Secondly I totally agree, for this reason I always ensure after Birthday’s or Christmas I always write hand written thankyou note’s to everyone. It’s a nice gesture and always looks more heartfelt than a text or email!

    adore that bag, absolute awesomeness


  35. Sheree Comment #35

    definitely agree. I have always found it so rude when people are on their phone when they are supposed to be engaging in conversation instead. I have actually avoided getting an iphone cause I never wanna get to that point. I don’t need it for work and I can wait till I get home to check my messages…patience is a virtue :)

    you are completely right. it is sad to see how people are constantly on their phones when sitting in bars of cafes etc. e.g. I don`t have smart phone and when i hang out with my friends half of the time they are checking facebook on mobile. it is so anoying and really sad :/
    anyways, you look great as usual, i really love your hairstyle here :)

    Loving your hair here!

  41. Chrisi Comment #41

    completely agree! My little sister makes amazing handmade cards and I’m a hairstylist…. so we trade off! I do her hair and she makes me cards so I can send them out to friends just for a little “hi i miss you tons”. It really makes all the difference. :]]

  42. ROULA Comment #42

    Just discovered your blog.. you have really great style!


  43. Melody Comment #43

    I agree 100%.. my boyfriend isn’t really addicted to the phone or social media as I am so whenever we’re out together I try to just leave the phone in my bag. Did you cut your hair or just changed your bangs?! Either way it looks good!

    I couldn’t agree more,phones and social media can be very addictive!I’m always checking instagram,facebook,tumblr and pinterest on my phone! love the jacket and your nails!!

  48. JenBlondet Comment #48

    I love this Jules. This is so true and I can totally relate to this (most of us) & I am actually going to try this! Next time I am at dinner or anywhere with a loved one I will focus on the moment ….not my phone! I bet I will enjoy it :)
    Thank you!!!!!!!!! :)

  49. Luna Comment #49

    I am in complete agreement with you! Have you seen the Amish Project? A guy gives up social media, email, and his cell phone for 90 days and documents it. He was tired of having relationships with people’s profile pages and didn’t want to do it anymore.

  52. HauteMangoGirl Comment #52

    awesome jacket!

    i hate it when my friends are texting while we’re having a conversation, i would never do that. i mean it’s not even like there’s awkward silence, some people randomly start twiddling with their phone in the middle of talking :/

  62. Nicole Comment #62

    Great post! I read a statistic the other day that something like 38% of college students polled check their smart phones at every 10 minutes! I think we need to get back in engaging in actual reality. They are great tools though, can’t deny it.

    Just wondering, what nail polish are you wearing?

    Super chic look.


  63. Naina Comment #63

    I completely, 100% agree. This didn’t seem to be much of a problem before I got my iPhone… but I think it’s the fact that it’s so handy to use and has so many functions that it becomes more than just a phone; it’s sort of a little companion (however creepy that sounds?)


  64. Jules Comment #64

    very true! xx Jules

  65. Leah Comment #65

    It’s hard for me, too. But I’m learning to realize that a new text or instagram notification can wait…it’s not so urgent.

  70. Mariely Crowne Comment #70

    I agree with you, we are all addicted to technology and its pretty sad to not be able to leave your phone untouched when you are with special people. We should all give it a try!

  71. M-J Obsessions Comment #71

    Totally Agree!!! I wish my husband would stop using the phone when we are at social gathering. He is usually very considerate person, but what he does, makes him the most unconsiderate person.

  72. Десислава Валентинова Comment #72

  73. Lorelai Comment #73

    I agree, hate my phone! LOVE the new hair do

  74. Anca Comment #74

    I’m actually proud to say I’m not as addicted to my phone as I used to be. I can now go without it for hours without worrying about missing too much.


  75. delia Comment #75

    I so agree with you!

    Love the side parted bangs/hair.


  76. .aubrey c. Comment #76

    I feel the same way, its the way the world is now so its hard to feel connected without looking at our phones, but it is important to be in the here and now and take care of the people with are with.


    love the square shoulders of this jacket!

  77. aplikestodress.com Comment #77

    I completely agree! And like you said, in today’s world, it has become more of a challenge to just put the phone down instead of trying to “capture” every minute via instagram, facebook, etc…

    I couldn’t agree more Jules! Although a total victim to everything Apple myself…it’s tough to make the distinction between work and play when everything’s intermingled as it is anyway…especially in the creative field, your main job is servicing clients so gotta keep that ringer on just in case! Ahhh…story of my life too boo….

    Anyways, TOTALLY digging this new look on you hun! Downtown chic and full of ‘tude! LOVE the new cut…a very edgy side of you…me LIKEY!

  88. Mary-Alice Comment #88

    I feel the same way. Although I’m not on it so much, when I am I think it’s important not to let it interfere with your face to face time with people.

    Good thoughts. As always, you look inspirationally stylish!


  89. Chris.Azur Comment #89

    i love it!!!

  90. Shermineh Comment #90

    I definitely agree with you. I was on a date this past Friday with my boyfriend, and I thought about pulling out my phone and immediately felt guilty for thinking to do that on such a lovely evening with him :-/

    Great outfit, btw. All very cool basics to make a chic look.



  91. Anonymous Comment #91

    totally agree!
    I have to admit I once was a total addict, then my phone was stolen and after few days without my phone I started realizing you can survive without checking your phone every few minutes. I started enjoying not being available 24/7 for everybody.
    Although some people might think I’m a little weird I love the freedom. Of course I do have a phone, but not so many people do know my number. And I don’t feel any pressure to answer every call or text.

  92. Lindsay Comment #92

    I agree completely! This is such a pet peeve of mine when your out to dinner with friends etc. I always say your missing out on “the now”.
    PS I’m loving your hair in these photos..your bangs swept to the side look great!

  96. M. Comment #96

    i was just talking about this with friends last night. because with texting, people think you should always be able to respond, we feel pressure in our generation to never have time where we’re truly unreachable. I really do think it affects the way we’re able to care about and love the people we’re with at the moment. great post, cute outfit. love this!

  97. April Comment #97

    Such a good point. Recently my friends and I, when we go to dinner with each other or family or boyfriend, we leave our phones in the car. It’s so refreshing! Great post, always a good reminder… & lovely outfit (white leather jacket = AH-mazing).

  100. VintageDanielle Comment #100

    I feel the SAME way. I’ve noticed that ever since my fsmily got iphones, they are always on it and when we get together, we talk less. I actually find it quite sad. Call me old fashion, but do we really need the tv to be on and our phones attached to our hips?

  115. Sweat Style Comment #115

    I’m new to your blog and love it, thanks for sharing your amazing style. I agree and luckily my two little gals (3.5 & 1 yrs old) make sure they have my full attention in their own little ways so it definitely reminds me to be in the moment as they grow up so fast!

  117. Kristin and Lindsay: Passport To Style Comment #117

    I love this look! It’s an incredibly versatile, chic look that is just perfect for the LA weather today.

    Kudos to you for turning off the phone. For years, I was the person who was always typing, texting or phoning away, and when I finally started dating my current bf, he showed me the importance of the present and the presence of being in the present. Thank you for reminding us to take the time to spend it with those who count!

  127. Kerry June Comment #127

    first off, i adore your jacket. second, i totally agree. everyone is so glued to their phones, me included! it’s hard. i was just thinking in the car how i should check in with a friend and was about to text her, but thought i should call instead. it gives a closer connection to actually be in tune with those around you & your loved ones through actual face to face or at least verbal communication rather than text & email. but at the same time, everyone is so busy it’s tough to make it happen!

  128. GRACE Comment #128

    such a nice post! i wonder how the younger kids of this generation will grow up with all this technology. My friend’s 4 year old already knows how to use an iPad like a pro– it’s crazy!

    btw, SUPER CUTE hair!!! love that cut~

    i completely agree, technology especially cell phones becomes really addicting and sometime i have to take a step back from it all. btw I love this outfit especially those flats! :)


  131. Sarah Comment #131

    You are the epitome of casual cool! Its very true, we are all way too attached to our phones. When my husband and I were on our honeymoon we left our phones in our bags in the room and agreed not to use them. Not using your phone makes you so much more connected to the person you are with =).

    Also wanted to say congrats again on the Who What Wear feature, so well deserved!

  132. Rianna Phillips Comment #132

    Nice words, yep I kinda agree with you. It does my head in when I’m with people that are facebooking whilst in the cinema or over dinner when its just not appropriate.

    We are all thinking it, so well done for saying it out loud!

    Great outfit, am loving the jacket

  137. ellen. Comment #137

    No I agree- it’s a good reminder to be in the moment. When I first saw the post I thought you cut your hair! Than I realized you just have it parted another way. Not that you wouldn’t be a knockout with a cropped bob. I’m just loving the long ombre on you!


  138. Ashley Comment #138

    Love your style. I have been craving those Zara flats.


  139. Sara Comment #139

    I absolutely love your nail polish color! I’ve been looking for one like that recently but couldn’t find it anywhere. Who makes it? Also, so totally agree with the phone thing. It’s sad that’s what has become of our generation.

  144. thechicndamned Comment #144

    that leather jacket looks great on you!

    and you’re right. we become so reliant on technology these days it’s so hard to remember what life was like before that. Sometimes I wish we still lived in a society where good manners dictated that we wrote each other little thank you notes for dinner parties, presents and anything else that would so require it. It’ll be nice to bring etiquette back.
