Transitioning Winter Wear to Spring Flare.

Changing seasons can get any fashionista in a tizzy. You go through your closet and think, ‘is that still cool?’, ‘do I need thirteen different sundresses?’ and ‘why did I ever get rid of that jean skirt from high school?!’ But I wanted to write down a few tips I try to keep in mind while switching to warmer weather.

An Introverted Blogger’s Holiday Picks

I had an amazing weekend last weekend! I went to a Bucks game, epic seats by the way. With the new arena coming to Milwaukee, I have to start being a fan now 😉 I had a baptism on Sunday, visited a potential home purchase and had dinner with a good friend on Saturday night, including way too much wine. But I have another highlight, I was on TV. Yes, I know, I didn’t tell anyone!

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.

Love is in the air

I had the most amazing time this past weekend! My husband’s half brother got married in Woodstock, Illinois. We went down Friday night for the rehearsal dinner and got a sneak peek of the venue. The big event was held at a farm on hundreds of acres of beautiful Midwestern green land. The ceremony was in the beautiful gazebo and we could not have asked for a beautiful day! The Concorde Center included the refurbished barn, a pool house, and a beautiful vintage home that slept 12 people.

Other than the heartwarming ceremony and epic reception, one of my favorite things was my friend’s husband Facetiming me hours before the wedding because he was unsure what to wear! 😀

Here are some pics from the beautiful Treasure wedding!

Falling for Autumn.

Fall is my favorite season! You will call me crazy, but I do not love Summer. I guess it goes to the fashion, I find it a lot easier to style myself in the colder months. Layers, baby, layers!

Below is my simple outfit transitioning into the cooler weather. I bought this cozy tank at a local boutique I’ve crushed on for years! I was instantly attracted to the color, I usually do not wear browns and tans, but this was such a stunning color, I have received SO many compliments on the color alone!  Stephanie Horne Boutique is located in the Historic Third Ward in Milwaukee. I lived less than a block away for five years and it has taken a lot of self control to not visit weekly.

I paired my tank with a big scarf from Zara, vintage Louis Vuitton handbag and my go-to Hudson jeans.

What’s your go-to Fall outfit?

The perfect LBD

Wedding season is coming to a close. This year I only had one! I think everyone has that age where you have about 8 weddings in one Summer, that was my case last year. Finding a dress for a wedding can be very hard, a little black dress is always a safe way not matter how casual or conservative a wedding can be.

My understated, but stunning dress is by Oh My Love, which is a fashion brand based out of London with an array of beautiful dresses. I paired mine with a pair of funky heels *rawr*.
