It is a quiet day here at Sarah Winchester Studios as on Friday we bid adieu to our fabulous intern Jacalyn. Best of luck to her as she returns to school at Villanova University! Here she is, doing what she did best…a whirl of multi-tasking, photo assisting, set styling and generally making me look better.

Hey there. Our intern Jacalyn is back with some of her favorite styles or men. She has pulled many of her looks from the laid back preppy style of Vineyard Vines. Whose founders, Ian and Shep Murray, were recently featured in an Improper Bostonian article. Their entrepreneurial story is quite inspiring. I highly recommend taking a read, after perusing Jacalyn’s pick
As Father’s day rolled around this year and I was thinking about what to get my own Dad, I began to put more thought into something that is truly underrated: men’s fashion. In my opinion, there is nothing more attractive than a well-dressed man. Everyone usually thinks that there is nothing to guy’s clothing but that is just far from the truth. In each season we see color trends and popular clothing items. Of course men’s options are not as great as women’s but there still is some great style watching behind men’s clothing. I have added some of my favorite summer looks for guys below.
Bowties… they have to be my biggest weakness

Sarah here again. Jacalyn’s style picks got me perusing the Vineyard Vines website and I love the old photos they have of them starting out. Way to make a living off of the lifestyle you love!

Exciting news here at Sarah Winchester Studios…we have our first every intern!!! With me this summer and guest blogging throughout, is the lovely Jacalyn Reed. Jacalyn is a rising sophomore at my alma mater, Villanova University, and a Communications major. (She has already proven herself to be indispensable these first two weeks.) Jacalyn is a native New Englander with roots in Boston and Newport. She has that great classic, preppy style, but I’ll let her tell you more.
After completing four years at an all girls’ catholic school, I then ventured to Villanova University, which to be honest had a similar feel, (with the addition of boys of course). I have just finished my freshman year; it was a major transition that I fell in love with. Everything about my first year in college was fantastic, from the amazing people I met to the interesting classes I took. Although, uprooting your life is difficult at times, I am now looking forward to a summer of fun at home!
My internship seems to be so fun and interesting so far and I am thrilled about all the wonderful projects that Sarah and I have ahead of us! I am also looking forward spending time in one of my favorite places, Newport, Rhode Island. Newport has always had a special place in my heart because it is where my whole family comes together and shares amazing memories. I have been so fortunate to be able to enjoy my summers in Newport since I was born.
The Newport Bridge
I have worked retail for the past four years in Newport and have been able to develop a good sense of my own style, combining things I like and are considered “in style” with what looks good on me. Throughout the summer, my goal is to share some of my fashion insight. For the summer, I have some “must-have” items, which include, a monogrammed iPhone case, Jack Rogers sandals, a pair of Ray Bans, white jeans, and a neon pedicure!
My Summer Must-Haves:
I am never without a monogrammed iPhone case, its cute and personal all while protecting your phone! Not to mention all the fabulous patterns and color combinations!
Jack Rogers are a basic in my summer wardrobe I can usually match anything to a pair of these adorable sandals! I of course am obsessed with the monogrammed ones!
I honestly wish it were fashionably acceptable to wear white jeans all year long they go with everything! These slight flare leg jeans are so flattering and look great with wedges, heels or flats!
Ray Ban aviators
I love when it is finally appropriate for summer nail colors because that means it is time for the neon’s to come out! I never go without neon Essie color on either my nails or my toes!
