We admit it: when it comes to Copious Crushes, we’re a little bit West Coast biased. But who wouldn’t be, when there are amazing ladies like Jackie from Sweetie Pie Style to feature? Jackie’s blog is full of super cute, amazingly wearable styles for ladies with on-the-go, California-casual lifestyles.
Introduce Yourself! What’s your name, where do you live, and what do you do?
My name is Jackie and I live in Northern California, in a small town about 2 hours north of San Francisco. I am currently a stay-at-home mom, and n my spare time (ha! if there is such a thing) I blog about style over at Sweetie Pie Style.
How would you describe your personal style?
Due to my lifestyle, I would say my style is “casually put-together”. I prefer comfort over anything, and don’t like to feel too stuffy. I tend to add items to my closet that have a mix of both classic and boho styles-it’s all about creating an interesting balance.
Do you have any fashion regrets? Or vice versa, things you’ll never stop wearing?
Well, of course, everything I wore to middle school in the early 90’s! Like maroon pants with a matching flannel and a black lace choker necklace. Yikes! And I don’t think I will ever stop wearing a good pair of denim.
What inspires you?
Well, I am addicted to Pinterest for starters. But away from the computer is where I find the best inspiration. It never fails to inspire to just get outside with my family, go to the beach, walk around an outdoor nursery, have a great meal, read a good book or watch a thought-provoking movie. Those are the most inspiring things in my life right now.
Tell me about Sweetie Pie Style. How did you get started? What are your goals?
I started my blog without having any idea what a blog really was. I ran across one on a sleepless night with my newborn daughter (who is now 7!) and I thought it was a cool thing to have a bit of an online diary. My blog has evolved many times over, but has always had a lifestyle related theme. I have always loved interior design, style and entertaining, and my blog has been my way of expressing myself in those areas. My main goal with my blog has been to share my ideas and inspirations with others, and to always have fun with it!
What are you listening to right now?
I can’t stop listening to Marina and the Diamonds right now-I’m obsessed! Her Electra Hearts album is pretty much on repeat all day every day.
Tell me about your ideal day. What do you do, where do you go, who are you with?
My ideal day would involve all of the things that I mentioned inspire me- hanging out with my family, heading over to my favorite local beach town Half Moon Bay, having lunch at the brewery there, then heading over to sunbathe and watch my girls play in the waves. That would be my ideal day. Oh, and throw in a babysitter for the evening so I could have a nice quiet dinner with my husband and maybe some wine tasting for good measure!
Anything I should have asked that I didn’t?
Tell me one more thing I should know. Hmmm, I can’t whistle. For the life of me. And I find that very disturbing ;)
What are you loving on Copious right now?
See By Chloe White Dress. I am so obsessed with finding the perfect lwd for summer. Something easy and breezy, just like this one!
Kendra Scott Turquoise Statement Ring Kendra Scott is one of my favorite jewelry designers for a fun, bold statement piece. Turquoise is such a great summery color, I can see myself wearing this over and over again.
Sam Edelman Brown Sandal The perfect strappy sandal to go with everything!
