Lake Effect Co.

The effect social media has is truly magnificent. I have been so fortunate to meet so many different people over the last couple years. I discovered Katherine’s blog, Lake Effect Co., by a fellow blogger and friend, Sammy of My Midwest is Showing. We met briefly at a Rising Tide meeting in Milwaukee and again at a flower crown making party! Since then, I can’t stop checking out her posts and pictures to see what she’s been up to and obviously living vicariously through her fun adventures!

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!

Boots in Summer

I have some exciting partnerships happening this Summer! One is with Harley-Davidson footwear! I was thrilled when they reached out to me about their newest Spring/Summer collection. As some of you may not know, my husband is a Mechanical Engineer for Harley Davidson, so I thought this would be a blast to team up! Not to mention, my husband is not a fan of photos or social media so some amazing boots were a good bribe to get him to take a few photos.

Art in Bloom

Floral and fashion. What else do you need in life?

A few weeks ago I was honored to be asked by the Milwaukee Art Museum to take over their Instagram account as a guest journalist for their annual Art in Bloom exhibit. Naturally, my answer right away was yes, of course after I freaked out a little (or a lot)! I have always wanted to attend the installation of where local florist are assigned an art piece to interpret and create their own arrangement to be shown to the public for a weekend.

Paradise for 6 Days

Phew, Monday. Mondays are rough in general, but even worse when you just get back from an almost week long vacation to Mexico. We spend last week in Cancun with perfect weather and amazing company. My husband and I became friends with our neighbors a few years ago and swore we would all go on a trip together. Jamie works for a travel agency and shared an all inclusive resort deal that couldn’t be turned down.

Mixing Patterns & Color Blocking

This weekend I went shopping and my mind sparked while seeing a Dad and Daughter having coffee together. When I was little, my dad and I would go to Barnes & Noble (book store if you aren’t familiar) once a week. We could call it being ‘café people’ we would go to the café portion of the store and sit there for hours. My dad read or worked on his computer and I would look at fashion magazines. I would have a stack of about 15 magazines and flip through the pages, rarely read… I feel like things haven’t changed 🙂
