Jackie Style: Anniversary Weekend

This Saturday my husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary! It has been a wonderful first year of marriage and I have cherished every moment 🙂 Check out Ashley Berry Photography to see some good ole bridal fashion (Melissa makes an appearance as a gorgeous bridesmaid!) and consider booking her for your next photography session. Not only is she amazingly talented, but she is a fantastic human. When you spend a half hour during your consultation talking about Harry Potter, you know you’ve found a good person!

My husband and I spent the weekend in Fargo, where we both went to school (at different campuses – go Dragons!) and first met. The city holds nostalgic value, features an assortment of wonderful local businesses and is a simple getaway. We got coffee at Babb’s Coffee House and walked around Island Park, which was what we did on our first date.

IMG_5806Except one problem: it was cold. Like, super cold. I shouldn’t have been surprised, considering that Fargo is flat and thus very susceptible to wind, but oh my goodness. But hey, I’ve been asking for this fall weather, right?
IMG_5790We took photos pretty quickly and I got back in my coat. Holding the coffee cup was necessary to keep me warm. Look how perfectly fall the sleeve is!
IMG_5818I’ve been pretty pumped to wear this ModCloth outfit. The fall colors are my favorite. I’ve noticed forest or emerald green in a lot of places lately and I am LOVING it. It’s so gorgeous! What a great neutral color that has its own personality. It’s going to transition from fall to winter well. Pick up something emerald this season, you won’t regret it.
IMG_5785I paired my emerald dress with some other fun accessories: plaid tights, burgundy booties, and fall-themed jewelry. The booties are a little too big – I’m not sure a half size down would have fit perfectly, though. I put some no-slips on the bottoms of the shoe and it worked a little. I would love to hear your tips on making slightly-too-big shoes fit!

What I Wore:
Dress: ModCloth
Cardigan: Old Navy
Earrings: ModCloth
Necklace: ModCloth
Belt: ModCloth
Tights: ModCloth
Socks: Target
Boots: ModCloth

I also fashioned this dress that evening into a nice date night outfit with black tights, my mustard wedding heels, a gray cardigan and my wedding pearls, but I forgot to take photos. We were enjoying our time together too much 🙂 It was a weekend to remember. I can’t wait to see where the next 50+ years of marriage take us!

Jackie Style: Minty Fresh

I love mint, particularly as a summer color, and I super love mint accessories. So why not wear all of the mint accessories I own?

IMG_4372

IMG_43777

IMG_4375Apparently that’s what I was thinking when I wore this outfit, because I definitely chose all of my accessories before I even knew what dress I would wear. In my defense, I’ve wanted to pair the bracelet and necklace for some time. I love how they look like they belong together but came from different places!

When wearing the same color more than once in one outfit, it can be worrisome to match the shades. The best way to solve this is to wear those items n places they don’t touch – all of my mint items are far enough apart that even if they aren’t the exact same, they still look like they belong together!

IMG_4371I love two things about the dress I chose: it allows the minty accessories to really shine on their own, and the color eggplant is my favorite shade of purple – so much so that I used it as one of my wedding colors. My cousin’s bridal shower was the same day and I completely forgot until I arrived that eggplant was one of her colors too. Hooray for serendipitously matching the party!

IMG_4370Hope you all have a fresh week 😉
