Jackie and Marilyn | Pretty Nice Little Saturday

My husband and I had a rare weekend where we had…drum roll please…no plans. WHAT.

We relaxed at home for the most part, with the exception of a trip to Home Depot where we spent an hour trying to fit a new bathroom vanity into a Honda Civic.

When not MacGyvering furniture into an automobile, my husband and I enjoyed drinking tea, listening to records and watching all of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (which you NEED to watch!).

IMG_0225I went with a pretty simple outfit this weekend to match my complete lack of plans. Something about chambray and denim feels so stylish and classic at the same time.

IMG_0316IMG_0377Yes, I put shoes on inside, but just for photos! I had to make sure I showed the whole outfit. Oxfords and chambray are a perfect combo.
IMG_0443I finished it off with a week-old Jambicure and some fantastic earrings from A Delightful Shop!

IMG_0229 IMG_0400What I Wore:
Shirt: Old Navy
Earrings: A Delightful ShopJeans: ModCloth
Socks: Target
Oxfords: TJ Maxx

The best part of a free weekend is plenty of time to play with Luna. She makes everything better 🙂

Jackie and Marilyn | Channel Flannel

Believe it or not, winter is on its way out (for now)! But before we started having these unseasonable warm temps, I still had plenty of chances to wear my favorite flannel shirt.

aaIMG_6732I have had this shirt since high school, and my favorite part about it is how thick and structured it is. It is as flannel as flannel can get, so I thought I should dress it up with some more feminine pieces so I didn’t get mistaken as a lumberjack.

aaIMG_6739It’s hard to see the print, but this skirt actually has little red giraffes on it. LITTLE RED GIRAFFES! I don’t think I have to say anymore.
aacIMG_6741 aaIMG_6737I kept the red theme going with my deep red boot socks. I love how these peek out my boots – but I especially love how warm they are. Even though I’m beyond thrilled about summer being on its way, I will be sad to see my big comfy socks go. I promise to not wear them with my sandals.

aaIMG_6741I think the most feminine part of this outfit is my headband, which I have sang my praises of on here before. If something can be bedazzled and I STILL want to wear it, then it must be special! I have never been a rhinestone studded sort of girl, but I think this outfit playfully tows that line. Now where is my pink cowboy hat?

aaIMG_6742What I Wore:
Shirt: THE PAST?
Skirt: Lola
Tights: Target
Socks: Steve Madden
Boots: ModCloth
Headband: Len
Earrings: Gifted
Sunglasses: Ruche

Jackie and Marilyn: Our First Bird-Day!

Today is very special for us here at Jackie and Marilyn: It is our first birthday! One year ago, we launched our first blog post highlighting our Oscar party style choices.

BIRDAY1To celebrate our birthday – or, dare we say, “bird-day” – we wandered around Melissa’s neck of the woods in Cannon Falls, Minn., to check out the town and take some photos!

BIRDAY2BIRDAY4BIRDAY5BIRDAY18BIRDAY16BIRDAY23Melissa came up with the idea for a “bird-day” celebration thanks to this lovely new frock from eShakti. As Brianna already had this ModCloth gem at the ready, it was a no-brainer.

BIRDAY35We started the blog with the mission to share our personal styles and, hopefully, provide some outfit inspiration for our readers. Hopefully we have accomplished that!

BIRDAY17BIRDAY15This year has brought about plenty of changes for the both of us: new jobs, new puppies, engagements and more. One thing, however, has remained constant: We are still a couple of goobers who are lucky to have each other as friends 🙂

BIRDAY8Thank you for taking the time to read our style blog! Hopefully you have enjoyed it as much as we have enjoyed putting it together.

BIRDAY22 BIRDAY20What Brianna Wore:
Dress and Belt: ModCloth
Cardigan: Target
Necklace: Forever 21
Tights: ModCloth

Marilyn Style: You Are A Beautiful, Talented, Brilliant, Powerful Musk Ox

As we learned in Brianna’s last post, Galentine’s Day is where it is at. I welled up during the Parks and Recreation series finale Tuesday night but I’m so happy that this holiday will live on in infamy.
zzIMG_6687 zzIMG_6688Seeing as how my (would be) Valentine’s outfit was on the vampy side, I wanted to go the exact opposite for Galentine’s Day. If it was ethereal or pink, I was interested. My outfit did have one thing in common with my outfit the night before, though: I wore another nightgown.
zzIMG_6691 zzIMG_6690I don’t know what it says about our current fashion trends when vintage nightgowns are a million times more elegant than any present day-wear I have … but I’m glad that these things exist. My mom bought me this nightgown in high school for “dress up” as she fueled my vintage obsession from a young age. I recently tried it on again to see if it was a viable wedding dress. It was a definite frontrunner to be honest, but I found “the one” so I wanted to make sure I got to wear this baby out sooner rather than later.
zzIMG_6705Since it was so so very cold on this day, I picked out the quilted jacket that goes with this dress. Nothing like pink, flowers, lace and quilting to make you feel ultra feminine!
zzIMG_6689If I had a salvagable pair, I would’ve worn pink or white tights instead of tan. But you work with what you have! I recently got these (potentially wedding?) heels from Goodwill so I thought now would be a good time to test run them. I didn’t come home with bloody toes and that’s really all you can ask from a heel!

As far as accessories go, I really really wanted to wear a flower crown but didn’t have one. I had just ordered a bunch of plastic petals for wedding crafts, so at the last minute I decided to make one with some thread! It was great because I have a giant head, so getting to make something custom to my bobble head really helped me to keep it on the whole time with out whining about a headache. I kept the feminine look going with a single strand of pearls and pearl heart-shaped earrings.
zzIMG_6711 zzIMG_6709
Let the lady praise continue until next G-Day!
What I Wore:
Dress: Vintage
Coat: Vintage
Flower Crown: Homemade
Earrings: Gift/Crafted
Pearls: Target
Shoes: Goodwill
