Jacqueline’s Gift Guide for Him 2017

  I love going shopping for other people.  I think especially for dads, boyfriends, brothers, etc it is fun to treat them to items that you like and think they will look good in!  I love shopping for Kevin and picking out items that I like that I know he will love but not necessarily pick or buy for himself!  I think I found some great items that I am definitely getting for the special men in my life, as well as showing you some items I have gifted in the past that everyone loves!!!   1- Sweat Outfit     Kevin loves this outfit!  It is a nicer take on sweats and a sweatshirt and he looks so nice and put together when he wears it- and it is so simple and so comfortable, yet I think a little nicer looking too! 2- Shoes   3- Skin care    If the men in you life are anything like mine, they have a hard time getting into a skin care routine.  I think this makes a great little gift that they might never get themselves.  Kevin and I love this brand that I am linking!  I even picked one of these up for Kevin this year… Shh don’t tell!  And its Mickey too..how cute!! 4- Tech Equipment      5- Pull over   Kevin and my dad both love these! 6- Sunglasses   7- tie bar   A few years ago Kevin and I discovered The Tie Bar.  They have…

I think it is classic, yet fun and I love it.  I love how you can take one item, and wear it so many ways.   Here I am using this same skirt for more of a daytime look.  I paired the skirt with a graphic tee, blazer and super cute sneakers. I love pairing skirts with sneakers.  I think it is adorable, and comfortable! I think the blazer just adds to the whole look and pulls everything together!  Perfect day time look.   Then if you are heading out later and want to dress it up more, all you have to do is switch up your…
