The Last Days Of Summer Outfit

     The first days of Autumn are upon us, but I couldn't let Summer slip past without one more outfit post. As excited as I am for Fall, I'm going to miss the easy days of just throwing on a pair of denim shorts. I'm a lazy girl at heart, so denim shorts are pretty much my Summer wardrobe (besides comfy dresses, of course).

I've had these distressed festival shorts forever, and they're still holding up well. I just picked this tank up, however, at local shop Montrose & George. Top it off with a straw hat, and voila! Easy Summer style, minimal effort.

Junior Varsity Outfit

     I initially published this outfit way back in June but deleted it in one of my post clear-out binges. I had decided it was a bit too costumey for my blog, but what am I if not theatrical? Since school is back in session, now seems like a prime time to republish it.

I found this awesome Burger & Friends sweater on Dollskill, one of my favorite sites to find quirky statement clothing. I'm a big fan of retro varsity style, so I decided to go all-in and pair it with an American Apparel skirt and keds, channeling my inner Kelly Kapowski. My sister giggled at my 90's cheerleader look, but honestly, I felt super peppy. Maybe it's a bit much for streetwear, but it's never too early to start thinking about Halloween.

Faithful The Brand: Shades Of Summer

Faithful The Brand: Shades Of Summer

     I mentioned in my last Friday Favorites post that I was looking for one more taste of summer. This week's featured brand is exactly what I had in mind.

Faithful The Brand is an Australian clothing collection designed by the duo of Aussie Sarah-Jane Abrahams and Norwegian Helle-Them Enger. Inspired by the modern traveler, Faithful's pieces are three things above all else: luxurious, versatile and easy.

So who is the Faithful woman? According to Faithful, she is "independent, eternally curious, and sophisticated" and "[maintains] an aura of lightness and femininity whether she is at home or abroad". Some of Faithful's fans include Gigi Hadid, Kate Hudson, and Jessica Alba.

I love the fact that Faithful's garments are produced responsibly in Bali, Indonesia, using handmade processes like hand-dying and hand-printing, and of course, anything inspired by vintage clothing is a yes with me. My personal favorite piece is the Estella Floral Printed Midi Dress. So dreamy.


Another thing I love about Faithful The Brand is their lookbooks; they're shot in beautiful exotic locations such as Seychelles and the Amalfi coast, and play up the beauty of the land and sea. Honestly, I had Cruel Summer by Bananarama stuck in my head the entire time I was writing this post.

     Art is one of my passions, and when I started Jackie O My, I envisioned a place to share all the things I love. For this reason, I'm excited to introduce a new post series today called Featured Artist. In these posts, I will, well, feature artists that I love and that inspire me. I will start with an artist I discovered this year who has quickly become one of my all time favorites.

Rebecca Green is an American Illustrator and painter. Her work has been featured in books and magazines, and her very own picture book, How To Make Friends With A Ghost, will be released September 5, 2017. She has even illustrated the Portuguese version of one of my favorite books, A Little Princess, which you can view here!

Rebecca's style is what attracted me to her work; it's whimsical, colorful, and most importantly, tells stories. Her pieces just seem to exude magic and adventure. She usually uses a combination of gauche, graphite, and pencils for her artwork. I would love to tell you which of her illustrations is my favorite, but it changes each day. The care Rebecca gives to detail allows the viewer to discover something new each time.

Feeling inspired? You can learn more about Rebecca on her site, My Blank Paper.

     TGIF! I'm back with another Friday Favorites post, and this week I've rounded up some great stuff!

Summer is slipping away, and though I'm getting excited for windy days and Autumn nights, I'm still wanting one last Summer weekend of fun. If you're feeling the same way, here are a few things that keep those Summer vibes going while you wait for Fall, from casual tees to film DIY's.

  • To Want: Seeing all the back-to-school ads every year always makes me long to buy oversized sweaters and comfy tees, like this classic USA tee from Brandy Melville.
  • To Listen: The Promise by When In Rome is perfect for this in-between season.
  • To Read:  At the moment, I'm reading IT by Alexa Chung, and taking notes on her Parisian cool-girl style.
  • To Make: This incredible tutorial on film soaking from BLDG 25 looks so easy, and I love the colorful results!

What are your favorite things this week?

The Jetset Diaries: Canyon

     Autumn is my favorite season for style; there's nothing like comfy jeans, oversized sweaters, and shades of burgundy and wine. The Jetset Diaries has just released Canyon, their Fall 2017 collection, and I am swooning over the billowy layers and rich earth tones.

The Jetset Diaries is a luxe bohemian brand inspired by travel. From their story, the wardrobe of a Jetset girl is "an ever evolving documentation of her unique escapades; a collection of sentiments from far away places and people. She weaves a story for those who aspire to live the bohemian fantasy".

I love the wanderlust philosophy The Jetset Diaries promotes, and their newest collection does an amazing job of capturing it. It's the perfect mix whimsical, wearable, and boho cool, and I for one would love to wear this collection all Autumn long.

A Little White Dress

A Little White Dress

    The little white dress is one of my favorite Summer staples, so naturally, I couldn't let Summer end without featuring one. As I mentioned earlier this week, I haven't been able to take any photos outside due to lingering wild fire smoke. Today I finally had the opportunity to do some outdoor photography, and I chose to share one of my Summer essentials.

This outfit is one I wear over and over again. I like to dress casually when I go out; comfort is very important to me, but I still like to keep things feminine and pretty. The pinafore cut and flowy skirt of this dress are the perfect culmination of ladylike meets comfort, and the eyelet details are lovely. I usually pair this perfect little white dress with sandals for a casual, beachy look. I just bought these sandals from American Eagle. They were a steal at $15 CAD and are so comfy, too!
