Wedding Wear

It’s wedding season baby! The anxiety has kicked in.. what do I wear to my co-worker’s wedding where I don’t know anyone? Is it appropriate to wear red to a conservative wedding? It’s a good friend’s wedding, can I rock off the shoulder? YES!

The dress I am rocking is from Lizzibeth here in Milwaukee and would be perfect for a summer wedding! What I appreciate about shopping local is you are most likely not going to be wearing the same thing as anyone else because boutiques only have a few sizes! You can find Lizzibeth in the Historic Third Ward and also shop her pieces online here!

Do you have any favorite wedding dresses? Anything but white, people!

My Style Evolution.

A few days ago my coworker/friend and I were talking about her and her daughter’s trip to Marshall’s. She was explaining how her daughter picked out a cold shoulder shirt and is SO excited about it. She said shy was posing in the mirror and saying how pretty she looked in it.

It reminded me that when I was younger, I was such a tomboy. I hated wearing colors; I would only wear blue! I would ask my Mom if I could get a shirt and she would respond, “only if you get it in a different color.” Nope. I also hated jeans, it literally blew my mind that people were able to wear them and they wouldn’t fall down because they didn’t have elastic. Leggings and sweatpants were my best friend.

As I got more into middle school, my sister told me, “if you want to be cool you have to wear Abercombie & Fitch.” Obviously listening to my older sister’s advice I did. High school was a different story. As I became more confident, I started to branch out with my style. I began to own my style and wear whatever I wanted. I honestly did not care one bit if people made fun of me or bothered me about my style. I came to the realization that dressing like everyone else makes you like them, and I wanted to be myself and stand out. I began shopping at thrift stores and dressing super weird.I admit that now. (ha)! But honestly, I rocked it.

As I started to get older and had office jobs, I had to adjust my style and be professional. I still occasionally wear a funky outfit that will get looks or comments by coworkers. I am SO thankful that my day job isn’t in a completely business attire setting.

Red, White and Blue Jeans

Happy birthday America!

I love Fourth of July! Everyone is in a great mood and you can really feel the patriotic atmosphere almost anywhere you go! It also makes me appreciate all the opportunities I have as an American and how you can really can make your dreams come true. *Bald eagle flies by* but for real, being able to have this blog as a hobby is such a fun thing!

Another girl boss that went for it is Lizzi Weasler. I had the pleasure of teaming up with her to showcase off some of her stunning pieces from her boutique called Lizzibeth.  I have been a fan of the local store, located in the Historic Third Ward, for years now. Finding trendy pieces at a great price is a win-win situation.

This white top from Lizzibeth is on trend for so many reasons! I loved the ruffle detail incorporated with the cold shoulders too. I paired it with a vintage necktie and some strappy heels.

Check out her Lizzibeth’s newest styles here!
