Jackie and Marilyn | Midriff Moratorium

This won’t be my last crop top ever (most likely), but it is pretty likely that it was the last summer-like day for quite some time (it was 70 degrees in November in Minnesota!), so I figured it would my last chance to pull off a summery outfit before I’m covered in layers!
bonessss2I got this tiki/bones shirt at a local thrift/second hand store in Minneapolis called Buffalo Exchange. I can get into a lot of trouble there, especially because they have a vintage section. I haven’t had a chance to wear it yet, so I figured we were close enough still to Halloween and warm enough still, that I would give it a go!
bonessss1 bonessss5Although it was beautiful out, it is not quite shorts weather anymore, so I opted to wear my favorite pair of jeans, EVER, from ModCloth. I have three different colors because they are that good. I never thought I would invest money in to any leg prisons anytime soon, but these babies are worth it!
bonessss6Since I won’t have a simple outfit in quite some time (hello leggings and layers and jackets, oh my!) I left my outfit as simple as I could. Just throw in some flip flops (I’m miss you the most, flip flops!) and sunglasses and I was good to go.
bonessss4Brianna actually got to come see my new house and help me take these blog pictures before the inevitable early darkness that entered our life with daylight savings time. My dog Brim obviously wasn’t going to let me steal his spotlight!

Jackie and Marilyn | Candy Corn

Ever since Melissa’s wedding this summer, I’ve been looking for a way to wear the eShakti dress I purchased for the occasion. It’s a lot of yellow so I wasn’t sure if I wanted to overwhelm it with color. But then again, I didn’t want it to be boring either. Enter black and orange accessories!

IMG_4758This outfit isn’t just delightfully fall – it is quintessentially Halloween! And considering I wore it for the week before Halloween, it was perfect 🙂 With the white and yellow on top and orange on the bottom, I felt exactly like candy corn!

Admittedly, this dress has been a small pain for me because it just does not want to iron flat. The fabric of this dress just doesn’t want to keep out the wrinkles. I don’t think it wouldn’t hinder me from getting another item from eShakti, but after ironing the white seam around the waist for the second time, I was begging the dress to lay flat. But I’m not one to give up on a dress so easily!

IMG_4788The mix of a black cardigan and tights with the bright orange shoes allowed for some balance between the bold colors of orange and yellow. Do I normally endorse a quirky cacophony of color? Yes. Is it always necessary? No. You can create a fun seasonal outfit without going too overboard if you mix in a universal neutral color to even out the eye-catching tones.

IMG_4777These bright orange heels have been a fantastic addition to my autumn-based closet. So have these new acorn earrings from ModCloth!

IMG_4776 IMG_4794Keeping with fall, I now have on the Fall Fancy wrap from Jamberry. They’re a bit metallic for fall and I think I may save my next manicure with this wrap for the holidays, but they’re still pretty cute and top off an autumnal outfit with their leaf print!

IMG_4795What I Wore:
Dress: eShakti (similar)
Cardigan: Old Navy
Earrings: ModCloth
Tights: Target
Shoes: B.A.I.T. Footwear
Nails: Jamberry

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.
