About Jen

Jen Thoden - Outfit Ideas 4 YouHi! I’m Jen! I’m 41 years old and a mom of 2 teenagers (13 and 15). I am divorced and in a wonderful relationship with Joe. (You’ll see Joe from time to time on the blog.) We live in Ashburn, VA.

I’m a certified personal stylist and color consultant. I have a bachelors of Fine Arts. I love color and pulling together everyday style… and of course SHOPPING! I’m also an avid runner, lover of craft beer and wine, blogging, business owner, writing, creating videos and taking photos.

You’ll discover a lot of casual outfit ideas that I personally own or would wear. If you love casual style with a splash of bling and street… then you’ll love this blog! You’ll discover very quickly that I’m obsessed with shoes, pajama pants, skinny jeans, scarves and jewelry. LOVE me different watches, scarves with every outfit, statement jewelry… and I must own 20 pairs of pajama pants. Don’t worry… the PJs are for lounging at home 🙂

I’ve been a professional blogger for years… but this fashion and style blog was created in 2013 around my 40th birthday.

I wanted to create a blog that inspires women to discover their authentic style. This is a personal journey that I began when my husband and I separated. It felt like I woke up and realized that I didn’t know who I was. I didn’t know what made me happy… I didn’t know what I really enjoyed doing… I felt like I lost my identity.

So, this blog is a reflection of my journey to rediscover myself… transform myself… and to become the best version of myself.

I blog about what I love… fashion, style, color, running, travel, relationships, family and anything that brings me joy or makes me laugh! Of recent… I’ve added a thread of blog posts about personal development, mindset, self love and body image. I believe that your happiness begins with loving and accepting yourself first.

I hope that my posts inspire you and help you to become your most stylish, confident and happy you.

    I love your site, but find navigating through the many pages/articles difficult. Once I determined my season, I wanted to look at everything here relating to my season. I did find the one article that shows about 15 or so different outfit combinations, those are wonderful. What I’m referring to, are the additional articles that may contain information for my season, i.e; “you may also like” articles regarding a season wearing a particular color or which shade of ____are you?, type articles. How can I find them all? Is there any kind of article list with Titles and date?
    I don’t want to miss anything posted here, that will help me understand my colors. Did I read somewhere that a Warm Autumn might be referred by a different name by other color analysts?
    I just sent my sister to your site, this is going to be extremely helpful for both of us. Last question, can you recommend a site that teaches you what style clothes to wear based on age and body type? If so, that, with your guides and we should be all set.

      Hi JoAnne,

      Thank you so much for your feedback! The site is going through some big changes, and I will definitely keep your ideas in mind.
      There IS a page where you can get all of your Warm Autumn information. Go here: http://outfitideas4you.com/warm-autumn-pure-autumn/

      Warm Autumn is also known as Pure Autumn in the new 4×4 color system.

      I will be adding posts on how to dress for body type and that will be covered in more detail inside the style club. You will love the style club!
      By age… that one is really tricky since everyone is different.

      I hope this helps
