In our latest installment of Follow Friday, a style blogger who knows how to keep busy. She founded Independent Fashion Bloggers, an organization that links and supports style bloggers across the globe, and writes two blogs herself: The Coveted and Eat Sleep Denim. Meet Jennine Jacob.
Real Name: Jennine Jacob
Favorite Brand(s): It’s hard to pick! I recently got the Joie Elvia Lace Top—I wear it all the time. I’m also a huge fan of denim, and wear it mostly every day. In my current rotation: J Brand, AG Jeans, Charley 5.0, and Hudson Jeans. I’ve also bought a bunch of J. Crew cashmere sweaters.
Last Purchase: Army green 3.1 Phillip Lim pleated trousers.
Next Purchase: Oooh tough. I just moved to New York City, so I’m in desperate need of shoes I can walk three miles a day in.
Song/Album on Repeat Right Now: I’m a sucker for Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs. Right now, it’s Cheated Hearts, but I pretty much love everything they do.
Style Crush: Oh my god, there are so many! I’m a style slut, I guess. Let’s see, I love diversity in style, so it’s everything from the whole cast of Mad Men to my friend Wendy Brandes, blogger Love Maegan, photographer Saga Sig, and Stevie Nicks. I also think a lot about my grandmother’s style. She recently passed away, so the way she dressed has been on my mind.
Your Style in 3 Words or Less: Intuitive, urban, eclectic. (Pretty much I wear what I want, but mostly dress for my environment and lifestyle.)
You just moved to New York. What’s your favorite part about living in the Big Apple?
Holy moly! I LOVE it here! New York is a magical city. But my favorite part? I’ve been traveling back and forth on a monthly basis, so living here, I’m really enjoying seeing my friends and family without the jetlag and the packed schedules.
About Jennine’s Picks:
(1) Ever since I saw the Nanette Lepore Get a Clue Cape, I’ve been really wanting it. It looks slightly militaristic and very sharp, yet the wool is so soft. Swoon. Nanette Lepore - Get a Clue Cape
(2) I have a pair of blue Goldsign trouser jeans that I wear ALL the time. Since winter is coming, I want a dark pair in a similar style. I love wide-leg jeans. Somehow, they feel more feminine. Anlo - Pascale Trouser Jeans
(3) Like I said, I’m in the market for shoes that I can walk three miles in, and these look like they might be the ones. Charles David - Roust Field Boots
