A month ago, we took to Instagram to ask our readers for pics of their style—their #citizenstyleMSP. Since then we've encountered creative, fashionable people with great things to share. Next up: @jessica_manning.
Name: Jessica Manning
Hometown: Born in Sweden, raised in Minneapolis
Current neighborhood: West St. Paul
Day Job: Social media manager and singer/songwriter
You're a musician! Do you dress differently on stage? The way I dress for a show usually depends on the venue and time of day. If I'm performing at a bar at night I usually wear a more dressed up look. My go-to involves leather, black, and gold accessories. For a daytime show I tend to wear more casual outfits, maybe jeans, an easy top, and flats, but I always add a more interesting flair with unique jewelry. I like to look put together but still feel comfortable to move on stage.
Favorite local Instagram accounts? I am really inspired by well-curated Instagram accounts. A couple of my local favorites are @witanddelight_ and @lizgardnermpls. Other favorites are @songofstyle, @alwaysjudging , @lskyejewelry, and @arielealasko.
You need to rock this day. What do you wear? A pair of black leather pants or waxed denim with a white T-shirt, a chunky neutral sweater, black boots, and loads of delicate gold jewelry.
Greatest shoe purchase to date? Jeffrey Campbell 'Rumble' Boot
Favorite shops in the Twin Cities? Bluebird Boutique, Parc Boutique, and Prime and Polish are some of my favorites for inspiration but I am a big fan of thrifting and finding new ways to create less expensive options in clothing and home decor.
Favorite building? American Swedish Institute
Go-to cocktail? Gin & Tonic
Juice cleanse or closet cleanse? Juice Cleanse
To emoji or not to emoji: Yesss. Peek-a-boo monkey . . . am I right?
