6 Things All Men Should Have in Their Closet! ♡

Hey everyone!

Guys, this is a post for you. Or maybe for the girls who are looking to buy gifts for guys for the holiday! Here are some staple pieces (guys who don't know fashion terms, a staple is a must have, not an office supply) that every man should have in their closet. So open up your Notes app on your phone and jot this down for your next shopping trip!




  1. Neutral Tees- My personal preference is a v-neck (not too deep...please!!). But, v-neck and scoop neck are must haves. Black, white, and grey tees should be hanging in your closet right now! Don't know where to buy good quality? Check out www.express.com .
  2. A Well-Fitted Tux- If you don't already have one, I'm disappointed! There are SO many occasions where you need a good suit/tuxedo. Spend the money to get one nice one, and get it tailored! For amazing good quality suits, check out www.hugoboss.com .
  3. Dark-Washed Jeans- If you read my post on 5 Things Men Should NOT Wear (which was a big hit!) you would know that light washed jeans are awful unless you are at work or doing some country things haha. Do not DARE take a lady on a date in light washed jeans! Find a good pair of dark washed jeans that are your go-to for a night out or even to wear anywhere! My favorite denim brand: http://www.7forallmankind.com .
  4. A Signature Scent- I suppose this goes for guys and gals. Pick a signature scent that will make people think of you when they smell it. I can tell you from personal experience, when I smell certain scents I can think of the guys who wear it. My favorite (though people may think it's overrated and a cliché) is Armani Code. However, if you don't like the smell of it, which would be crazy...try out the Hugo Boss colognes! 
  5. Leather Loafers- This ties to the tuxedo concept, but every guy should have a good pair of leather loafers. Whether it's meeting the parents, or a wedding, or whatever it may be; you always will need a pair of leather loafers. Check out these: http://www.sperrytopsider.com/en/mens-shoes-loafers-slipons/
  6. Black Button Down- This is probably the sexiest thing (in my opinion, besides a grey knit cardigan) a guy can wear when I meet them. Something about a guy in a black button down and dark washed jeans smelling awesome, makes them seem so put together and on point. Express also has great button downs! www.express.com
I hope this helped guide you to a better closet, or helps you ladies with some gift ideas! Leave some other ideas of what you think men should wear in the comments below or on any of my social media! (Links are on the right side of my blog)

I'm going to be planning a holiday giveaway so keep an eye out for that, and I will be doing a Black Friday haul very soon! (Finals week, sorry for the lack of fashion!). P.s. Yay for my 2 year anniversary blogging on www.jennaleeann.com!

5 Staple Pieces For Every Closet ♡

Hey guys!

Black Friday is coming up and it's the perfect time to stock your wardrobe with the essential staples. Not sure what those are? That's what I'm here for! :)




1.) Basic Black Blazer- You never know when you're going to have an interview or an important day where you need to dress to impress. A black blazer is perfect for any occasion, and is a number one must have in any closet. Here's one that I'm selling from my own closet as seen in the picture above: https://poshmark.com/listing/Basic-Black-Blazer-541a5025018efa7bbd0b17d0

2.) Perfect Denim- Having the perfect pair of dark jeans is essential. Whether it's date night or just running errands, a pair of dark jeans that fit just right will go with pretty much anything.

3.) Black/Nude Heels- A staple necessity for every woman and perfect for every event. It may be wise to invest in a pair that are comfortable.

4.) The LBD- The Little Black Dress actually should be number one. It will never go out of style, and it is going to be the most versatile item in your closet. Here's one that I'm selling from my own closet as seen in the picture above:  https://poshmark.com/listing/The-Little-Black-Dress-541a53474c47c0054d01ff74

5.) Neutral Plain T-Shirts- I can't tell you how many times I wear a white, black or grey v-neck with an outfit. And boy does it pay off to invest in good ones. I buy mine from V.S. Pink, and they last me forever and fit very well.

I hope this list helps you decide what to invest in this holiday weekend! I'm working on the mason jar project I posted about on Twitter now, so hopefully that post will be done for next week! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and a safe shopping spree this weekend! :)

Follow me on Twitter | Instagram | and Facebook to see what I buy on Black Friday/Cyber Monday!

6 Questions To Ask When Cleaning Out Your Closet ♡ & GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT

Hey everyone!

Keeping your closet relevant and organized is important in many ways! It will help you pick out an outfit easier in the mornings and it will help you see how many clothes you REALLY have (by that I mean how many clothes you actually wear and how many are hanging there from years ago). Here are 6 essential questions you need to ask yourself the next time you do a major clean out! (P.s. the best times to do these clean outs are Spring and Fall).




  1. Will I ever wear this again?
  2. Do I feel confident when I wear this?
  3. Does it fit?
  4. Have I worn this in the past 12 months?
  5. Can I see myself wearing this in the future?
  6. Does this represent my current style?

After these questions you will have a nice refreshed closet! Now's the perfect time to do it because Black Friday is in just another month! This way you'll know what you need to buy or what you have room for! :)

GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT: I've recently reached 10k followers on Twitter (yay!) and a while ago I said once I reach 10,000 I will do a giveaway! Well, I'm a lady of my word, so I'm teaming up with Ashley from Afternoon Espresso to bring you the best give away yet! I believe we are starting it November 3rd, but keep an eye on my social media sides (I'll link them below) for specific details! (Hint: Kate Spade and Gift Cards, what what!?). Thank you to EVERYONE who is supporting me and following me! I always try to follow back until I reach my follow limit so make sure you follow me!!

Home Decor for Fall | Porch Edition

Hey everyone!

Today was the perfect Fall day, which of course leads to inspiration for decorating my porch!



Here's a quick before shot:
Boring and Plain!!!! Had to spice it up (and thank you to my brother for doing this with me and having the great ideas!).

Decorating for Fall is awesome because I love the colors! This flower pot is BEAUTIFUL!
Also, it wouldn't be Fall without some hay!
Pumpkins are the essential Fall decor item to get.

And here's the after shot with it all put together!



We did this whole project under just $50! Most of these items we got at a local farm, but I'm sure craft stores would have all of these! Get creative and move things around, don't be afraid to experiment! Make sure not to crowd the porch too much, and make it look welcoming! Once it's gets closer to Halloween, we plan on carving the pumpkins, and painting "Welcome" on one of them!

Let me know your Fall decor ideas, and send me pictures on Twitter @JennaLeeAnnLLC !
P.s. Just hit another milestone of 9k followers, so thank you so much to everyone who's following me and reading my blog!! I hope you enjoy it!

Share this post if you're excited for Fall time, and stay tuned for my next post. :)

Anywho, I hope you take the time to check it out and maybe do a little shopping! Also, a lot of my clothes will be offered in multiple sizes, but it only let's me choose one, so I've been clicking medium. I will list the sizes in the description, so just send me a message or leave a comment letting me know which size you'd like! I've got something for everyone! :)
