Jackie and Marilyn | What Season Is It Anyway?

I recently moved (read: am still moving) and have been trying to keep some seasonal clothes set aside in a suitcase so that I can easily access them while everything is still packed. The problem? I don’t know what season it is! We have been having unseasonable highs in the 60s, we had some snow and freezing temps yesterday and this Halloween is promising to be a mild again. The rollercoaster of Midwest weather! So I decided to be prepared for a little bit of everything!
sweaterweather1This maxi skirt is something I would normally wear in the spring and summer as it is light and floral, but it is the perfect amount of warmth for a 60-degree day! I slapped some tights on under it for when it was almost 20 degrees cooler in the morning, but by the time I got home from work they were ready to be set free!
sweaterweather2I’m a big fan of the button up sweater from ModCloth because it’s not that warm. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good warm sweater, but the knit in this one leaves a lot of ventilation and is perfect for those in between days. I only had a tank top on underneath it, so I was happy and comfortable in leaving it on all day.
sweaterweather3I wanted to wear my pretty lacy boots one last time, as I’m sure I will be trading them for a more rugged pair soon! It is nice to have a boot that your feet aren’t overwhelmingly hot in for times like these, though!
sweaterweather5I played up the whimsy of this outfit with a butterfly belt I got at a local garage/vintage sale. I’d say, with out the faux fur on my sweater you would think this was a spring outfit! Maybe we could just skip winter and go straight to spring? I’ll start up a petition!

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 | 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!

Jackie and Marilyn | Record Store Day 2015

This weekend marked one of my absolute favorite days of the year: Record Store Day. I love going out to support local records stores, snag some great exclusive music and search for used and new finds.

This year, one of the RSD exclusives was one of my absolute favorite albums by one of my favorite bands: The White Stripes’s “Get Behind Me Satan.” It was released on vinyl for the first time ever this year, with a red and white limited edition vinyl on Record Store Day and a wide release later in the year. My husband (who wanted Brand New’s Deja Entendu) and I were outside of our favorite record store, Mill City Sound, by 5:00 am. We enjoyed great conversation with other vinyl lovers and walked away very happy 🙂 Here are my finds!

IMG_1230We also walked away very tired. We spent the rest of the day at home listening to our records and doing nothing.

IMG_1247IMG_1248Lularoe leggings are perfect for a day like this – they are just so comfy! Buttery soft is how the company describes them and it just doesn’t seem to describe them accurately enough. They’re like wearing puppy cuddles on your legs! Yeah, that soft!

IMG_1353I decided a typewriter t-shirt was fitting: Both record players and typewriters are vintage technologies that have seen modern use.

IMG_1322 IMG_1358In reviewing my Record Store Day outfit last year, I realized I wore a kelly green skirt again! Apparently that’s my Record Store Day color. I retired last year’s skirt after several years of use, replacing it with this skirt, which I also have in nutmeg. If something looks good on your body, feels comfortable and makes you happy, buy all the colors!

IMG_1290What I Wore:
Shirt: ModCloth
Skirt: ModCloth
Leggings: Lularoe
Boots: ModCloth

I can’t wait to see what other exciting things are in store for next year’s Record Store Day! Here’s one more photo of my husband’s 10″ of Father John Misty’s “I Love You Honeybear,” shaped like a heart, while it was playing 🙂

Jackie and Marilyn | Easteroe

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! My husband and I enjoyed a day with family and a bunch of playtime with our nieces 🙂

I celebrated the holiday by (finally) getting into the spring spirit with some seasonal colors and patterns!

IMG_0646I recently hosted an online Lularoe party, which resulted in earning some free Lularoe! Among my choices were this amazing floral dress, which I had been eyeing on Instagram for a while, and a matching pair of leggings.

IMG_0717You may have heard Lularoe leggings referred to as “buttery soft,” and that’s not just a marketing tagline: They are seriously the softest, most comfortable pair of leggings I have ever worn. If you haven’t tried Lularoe and want to start small, start with the leggings and you’ll be hooked for good.

This Amelia was perfect for following the kids during Easter egg hunts, tickle wrestling and ham consumption. Plus, it’s twirly!

IMG_0683I decided to complement the outfit with a mint necklace and brown booties to keep it simple. This dress doesn’t need much help 😉

IMG_0648IMG_0651I also got my spring on with a fresh Jambicure! Is there anything more perfect than mint chevron?? If you haven’t seen the spring/summer catalog yet, take a look and prepare to swoon!

What I Wore:
Dress: Lularoe
Necklace: ModCloth
Leggings: Lularoe

 Hope you had an egg-cellent holiday! 🙂

Jackie Style: Chevron the Town

Where did all the snow go??? Well wherever it went, it was a short vacation because the snow came back this morning. IMG_6853I didn’t even bother wearing a coat when my husband and I went Christmas shopping this weekend, it was that warm. I made it across the parking garage without freezing and didn’t have to carry a bulky coat around the mall. That actually might be a Christmas miracle!

I’ve been pretty excited to wear this dress. Lularoe had an AMAZING Black Friday deal that I couldn’t pass up, and I got free shipping thanks to my consultant Amanda 🙂 But ultimately the selling point was when I saw this beauty.

IMG_6871It’s the same Amelia dress I already own but in a delightful mustard and grey chevron pattern. I love mustard and grey together. So much. It’s a color palette that is neutral but not boring and transitions into different seasons very well – it just depends on how you accessorize. Chevron is such a fantastic pattern, too. It’s so flattering! Unlike horizontal stripes, you don’t feel wider than you actually are.

IMG_6914I also cannot stress enough how comfortable Lularoe’s dresses are. I felt so at ease running around the Mall of America (yes, the very one) in this frock. And pockets!

IMG_6859I chose darker accessories for this dress, which included bringing one of my Brickyard Buffalo scarves back out. How could I not pair the forest green with the mulberry booties?

IMG_6891IMG_6887For jewelry, I went for some more of my favorite wood earrings from A Delightful Shop. I seriously cannot get enough of these. They’re so intricately designed but not at all flashy. It’s everything I want in my jewelry.

IMG_6895What I Wore:
Dress: Lularoe
Scarf: Brickyard Buffalo
Earrings: A Delightful Shop
Belt: ModCloth
Tights: Forever 21
Boots: ModCloth

And for anyone who’s been curious, I’m a week and a half into my second round of nail polish and it’s already chipping like mad. My three and a half week old Jamberry accent nail? Still going strong 🙂 I’m excited to do a full manicure soon!

IMG_6915I hope you’re all enjoying the holiday season!
