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 🙂

Skirt: ModCloth
Earrings: A Delightful Shop
Necklace: ModCloth

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

Jackie and Marilyn | Movie Night Done Right

I recently went on a little date with my husband to go see The Martian, and despite my trepidation that it was going to give me hella anxiety as most epic space movies do, I thoroughly enjoyed it! The theater we usually go to has plush leather recliners for EVERY SEAT so I knew I wanted to wear something comfortable.
Hooded2Enter: A fall favorite of last year, this adorable houndstooth jacket. I’m glad I recently dug this jacket up, as I almost forgot it existed over the summer. It’s got a giant hood to snuggle in and it is very warm for a “light” jacket!
Hooded6I didn’t want to go as far as to wear yoga pants to the theater, not because I am against going out in them, but because I didn’t want to be so comfy that I fell asleep. I opted for my most comfy pair of jeans from ModCloth instead.Hooded3 I am so excited to have these boots back in rotation for the colder months, too!  I got them at an end of the season sale from ModCloth last year and they are my new favorites. For $20, I couldn’t pass them up and I am glad that I didn’t!

Jackie and Marilyn | Autumn Palette

I’ve been so happy with the mildly cool weather, falling leaves and vibrant colors in Minnesota lately. It’s truly breathtaking!

I decided this week to wear an outfit that matches the lovely autumn palette outside. I tried wearing a coat and scarf because it was supposed to be a bit chilly, but I ditched it quickly – a warm dress and cardigan were enough.

IMG_4571This outfit was based around on of my favorite new items: A mustard Amelia from Lularoe. I’ve wanted one of these babies since I tried my first dress, and now it’s mine! It’s a perfect base for any fall ensemble.

IMG_4618

To keep the fall colors going, I chose a forest green cardigan, dark red leggings and brown accessories. Each piece of the outfit matches different leaves in the trees near my home 🙂IMG_4612I was a little worried about this outfit at first: There are no patterns! Would it be too boring? Thankfully it wasn’t. You don’t always need a bunch of patterns – sometimes it’s enough to just wear seasonal hues! Plus, the autumn leaves don’t have a Boston Terrier pattern and they look gorgeous anyway, right? (Although that would be super adorable and amazing…)

IMG_4580For brown accessories, I chose some cognac booties, tan boot socks and a brown belt with feathers.

IMG_4631 IMG_4633Wanting to keep it a little interesting, I chose a bold autumnal leaf necklace and earrings that match but are oddly enough not from the same place! Serendipitous pairings are the best 🙂

IMG_4629And because I live in Jamberry wraps lately, I’ve been sporting these lovely Country Harvest wraps thanks to my friend Sarah!

IMG_4635What I Wore:
Dress: Lularoe (other colors)
Cardigan: Thrifted
Coat: ModCloth (via Stylish Surprise)
Scarf: Brickyard Buffalo
Belt: Forever 21
Earrings: Francesca’s
Necklace: ModCloth (another color)
Leggings: Old Navy
Socks: Target
Boots: ModCloth
Nails: Jamberry

Happy fall, y’all 🙂
