Jackie and Marilyn | Midi Season

I sure love a good midi skirt. It’s a pretty big fall staple of mine and I love layering it with different accessories. I chose to wear a plaid shirt with one of my favorite skirts and a pair of knee-high socks.

IMG_4736Black, white and yellow are some of my favorite colors to pair together. I just love how bright the yellow looks against the neutrals! Wearing a pair of knee-high socks instead of tights both gives a nice layer for keeping warm, but not too warm. And with a midi skirt, it looks no different!

IMG_4742And the best part about a midi skirt? Nice and twirly 🙂

IMG_4691I paired this ensemble with my burgundy booties, my trusty autumn statement necklace and a new pair of beautiful button earrings from A Delightful Shop! Perfect for an autumn day of running errands and hanging with one of my best friends 🙂

IMG_4749 IMG_4752 IMG_4753What I Wore:
Shirt: Target
Skirt: ModCloth
Earrings: A Delightful Shop
Necklace: ModCloth
Socks: Target
Boots: ModCloth

I am so happy it’s fall, but my week-old Jack-O-Lantern feels differently.

Jackie and Marilyn | Orange, Owls and Octopuses

I love animal prints and bold colors, so I combined them for a perfectly fall outfit!IMG_4221If anyone ever tells you “That’s too much color,” you tell that person to put a sock in it! There is no such thing. Someone else might have paired the owls with something more subtle, but subtle is for the dogs.

IMG_4224I wanted to wear the orange heels with this dress and separately I paired the purple tights with the print. Purple and orange are not colors I would put together, but when I did it was perfect!

IMG_4253To keep on an O and bold theme, I chose an octopus necklace to go with the dress. I didn’t have any oval earrings so I chose my circle arrows instead 🙂

IMG_4236IMG_4237What I Wore:
Dress: ModCloth
Cardigan: ModCloth (other colors)
Necklace: Vinted
Earrings: A Delightful Shop
Tights: Target
Shoes: BAIT Footwear

The lesson for the week is be bold. Be beautiful. Be you 🙂

Jackie and Marilyn | Foxes and Foliage

Happy fall, everyone! Hooray for the best season ever!

One thing I love about fall is all of the fun critter prints. In particular, I love foxes. Lately I’ve found a lot of new fox things and I discovered I (almost) have a full fox outfit. If anyone knows where I can find an inexpensive fox blouse, hook a girl up!

IMG_4064 IMG_4099These knee-high fox socks are perfectly adorable! I was a little worried at first about mixing the brown with the black, but I think it works. I wore denim to make this an outfit full of neutral colors.

IMG_4080 IMG_4102The socks and skirt were delightful but adding fox flats and earrings made it even more fun! At one point I asked my husband “Is this too whimsical?” He said of course not. And I agree – if you’re going to go whimsy, might as well go all out!

IMG_4100 IMG_4101The shirt wasn’t the only piece that wasn’t “foxy.” I decided to wear a fall bow with my ponytail and only had this plaid one. Still super cute! Maybe I don’t need an outfit entirely made of one animal print…or maybe I need a fox now 😉

IMG_4103I topped off the outfit with my absolute favorite Jamberry manicure ever: foxes!

IMG_4179What I Wore:
Bow: Forever 21
Earrings: A Delightful Shop
Skirt: Target
Skirt: Ruche
Socks: ModCloth
Shoes: ModCloth (similar)
Nails: Jamberry

This outfit was so critterful and fall appropriate that I had to wear it for one of my favorite seasonal activities: apple picking! It was a perfect autumn day 🙂

Jackie and Marilyn | Fly Like Paper, Get High Like Planes

We’ve had some warm weather spurts in Minnesota. No fall for me yet. Sigh.

However, I’m still not resigned to going back to my summer wardrobe. So it’s time to pull out some transitional outfits! One of my favorite transitional outfits is wearing leggings as pants. Combined with a nice tunic, it’s perfect!
IMG_3718 IMG_3740These Lularoe leggings are AMAZING! Little paper airplanes?? Yes please. With something as vibrant as this print, a couple neutral pieces were the best way to balance. I’ve tried pairing these with other prints and bold colors, but they just work better on their own.

IMG_3823 IMG_3762In order to stay cool, I put my hair in a ponytail and decided to add a bow. This particular bow is from the girls’ clearance section at Target!

IMG_3828To keep on theme with air travel, I chose my wood balloon earrings!
