Trends I Love: Animal Motifs (and a bit of my Zoo day)…


Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. On Saturday, I took my best friend Diana to the Zoo (it's like her fave place in the whole world). What inspired this trip besides Diana's love for animals and the Groupon? If I must be truthful, all of these adorable animals are being printed on scarves, sweaters, tees, you name it, around stores and fashion lately.

My Back to School Faves…


Hi, my name is Jackie and I have an obsession with school and office supplies. Since it's tax free weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to share my recent office supply obsessions (great excuse, right?!). August is seriously one of my favorite times of the year because of the abundance of office supply sections in stores. I literally get goosebumps when I walk into Target and I see the hanging large cardboard pencils from the roof; they indicate the aisles and aisles of brand spankin' new notebooks, pens, highlighters, backpacks and paperclips that are just waiting to be used. The woodsy smell of freshly sharpened pencils is so comforting to me. I blame this obsession on my aunt. She equally has the "school supply disease." Every year, we would have an office supply shopping weekend; we would literally go to every single store that would offer back to school sales. Office Depot, Office Max, Staples, Walmart, Target, Walgreens, you name it, we would go there. That being said, here are a few of this years favorite finds. It was hard to narrow it down, but I managed.

Menswear Monday: The Sport Coat…


Surprise! Today is my first ever "Menswear Monday!" To the ladies: I know what some of you may be thinking, "I don't really care to know about mens fashion because it doesn't pertain to me or help me in any way." Well, it might not help you with your personal wardrobe, BUT I'm sure that most of you have a man in your life, whether it be a friend, significant other or family member, that can use a fashion tip or two: this post will help them ( NOT TO MENTION, some of them will maybe take the advice and start dressing better! YAY).

To the men: Today I'm going to be talking about sprucing up your casual  style. Whether it be a "professional" or business type of casual Friday at work, or just a fun summer outing that doesn't require a suit and tie, "casual" does not mean that you have to slum it down, or just wear jeans. Don't get me wrong, jeans are great and a classic staple in your closet, but let's try to step out of your comfort zone and put a little pizazz to your casual looks.
