bon voyage.

I’m off on my last adventure of the summer!  Tonight, I’ll be jumping on a redeye to NYC and on Thursday, I’ll be joining up with two of my bffs in Miami.  It’s going to be a crazy week to say the least.

I’m making it my goal to keep the blog updated while I’m away, but if I start slacking, you can follow me on Twitter (@jennyinjacquard) for more frequent and random updates.  Ciao friends!

summer spirit.

f21 top; hco shorts; ray-ban aviators; rebecca minkoff bag; madden girl sandals

Nothing encapsulates the free spirited nature of summer better than cut-offs and a tee. The combo is conducive to both heat and general summertime laziness. I’m in love with this particular top for its relaxed neckline and playful nod to tribal prints.

To avoid looking too slob (google: Britney Spears barefoot at a gas station), add a pair of strappy sandals and a crossbody bag with some major hardware.

beach bound.

In a little over a week, two of my best friends and I will be taking South Beach, Miami by storm (but seriously, no hurricanes please)!  In honor of our adventures, I’ve compiled some of my favorite beach gear, which’ll also be perfect for some frolicking up and down Collins Ave.  I love my fun in the sun, but I also take sun safety pretty seriously!  SPF 85 Sunscreen?  You betcha!
