fanskirt

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: I absolutely love this green skirt, with its little velvet fans. And I really wanted to show you all how fun this skirt from ModCloth is. So, I had a little dance party in the driveway all by myself. Haha. I included some blooper photos of me really looking like a fool, (they’re at the end of the post) to show how about 90 percent of the pictures taken actually looked…. Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: The sun is actually shining and it feels like spring is almost here. The temperatures are above freezing for the first time in months! And while the flowers aren’t blooming yet (here at least), I was hoping to feel a little more spring-like with some flowers in my hair. I bought this flower crown a few months ago, and I really enjoy wearing it. One day I will get a more… Read more »

Last Updated on February 18, 2016 Shop the look: I’m on a bit of a grey clothing kick lately, and I’m blaming it on the gloomy, cold weather we’re dealing with. (I refuse to make any 50 Shades of Grey references, though. Ick! Not a fan of that whole book/movie.) On a brighter note, though, it’s supposed to be beautiful weather next week! This grey dress I’ve had for a few years, and I tend to break it out during… Read more »

Pride & Prejudice sweater

Last Updated on February 1, 2018 Shop the look:   It is a truth universally acknowledged that Pride & Prejudice is one of the best books ever written. I have been re-reading it at least once a year for about the past 12 years. I am a really big Jane Austen fan, let’s just say. Pride & Prejudice is indeed my favorite book. And just like with my favorite movies, if I can find clothes that allow me to show… Read more »

Last Updated on September 28, 2017 It took me a few tries before I was finally able to write this post. I guess I am just in denial that we are actually leaving Stevens Point, Wisconsin…which has been our home for the past year and a half. I’m probably going to be a bit of an emotional wreck by the time I actually finish it. When my husband and I first found out we were moving to Stevens Point, I remember… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: I know technically you aren’t supposed to like villains. However, I think there are a few exceptions to this rule…starting with The Winter Soldier. Loki and Magneto would also fall into this category, but The Winter Soldier really holds a special place in my heart. He is just such a bad ass! (Excuse my potty mouth.) And it’s not as though he wants to be the bad guy…but before I get… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019Meet Kara! She’s February’s Featured Fashionista and one-half of the husband and wife team that has created the virtual wardrobe app, “Dressed.” This fabulous app makes planning your daily outfit a cinch, but we’ll get to the details in a moment. Kara is originally from the US, and has moved to Australia for her career as a marine biologist (and yes, she will talk about sharks in this feature!). Kara always looks amazing for work… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Skirt (Similar here & here) | Top (Similar here & here) | Heels | Tights | Belt I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! This year was actually the first year since my husband and I started dating that we went out and did something. We usually order a pizza and binge watch Netflix (say what you will, but that is our ideal evening). We dressed up fancy and went out for a… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: This isn’t the first time I’ve worn this dress on my blog. However, this time I’ve styled it to be cold weather friendly. Maybe it’s the white tights, but now I can’t help but think I was trying to look like Alice in Wonderland in this post. I was not a fan of Alice in Wonderland when I was growing up, though. It scared me, along with E.T. and The Wizard… Read more »

Last Updated on February 21, 2016 Shop the look: It’s that time of year where dreams of flowers and warmer weather are dancing in our heads. However, there’s still snow on the ground, and there’s no end to the chilly temperatures in sight. This outfit is my attempt to brighten up my cold weather blues but still be warm and cozy. I love the embroidered peonies on this sweater and the bright reddish pink color. It’s a nice cardigan for… Read more »

Last Updated on February 21, 2016 Shop the post: I am really excited to show this dress off on my blog, finally. It is my absolute favorite dress, and I have been waiting for the perfect time to wear it. I really thought this weekend was it. However, Mother Nature did not agree. As you can see from the pictures above, I’m hiding in a doorway with the exact same pose in all of my pictures. That’s because it was… Read more »

Last Updated on February 21, 2016 Shop the post: I’m continuing my theme from my last post, which is finding clothes you can picture yourself wearing 5 years from now. This outfit is primarily made up of clothes that are 5+ years old, as well. I have actually had this American Eagle sweater for longer than I could drive. That’s right, I’ve had this sweater since I was 15 years old…and it is still one of my favorite sweaters! I… Read more »

Last Updated on March 28, 2016 Shop the look: Buy clothes you can picture yourself wearing years from now. Don’t buy something simply because it’s trendy. I know the less I worry about what’s in style, the happier I am with my fashion choices. Every single thing I am wearing in this post is 5+ years old, and I have worn nearly every single piece to death. This shirt is one of my favorites to wear in the winter. I’ll… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: I am a huge fan of Marvel Comics. So, imagine my excitement when I opened up a present that contained a handmade scarf, with a Marvel Comics print! My sister-in-law surprised me with it for Christmas (she knows me well). She had it made through a lady on Etsy. It is simply amazing and very well-made. This scarf is going to withstand the test of time. I love the pattern so… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019Meet Cat Carney! She’s this month’s Featured Fashionista and a professional model. Some of you may recognize her as one of the darling models from ModCloth. That’s where I first saw Cat’s work as a model. I remember it clearly. It was a picture of her modeling an adorable vintage prom dress (click here to see it). She looks so pretty in it, it’s unreal. Through the magic of social media I was able to… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: For this outfit post I was required to befriend the local duck population. They were initially alarmed by my panda flats (I think, I don’t speak duck very well). However, after I fed them all of my Tostitos (don’t worry, they were the organic, low sodium kind), they realized my panda flats and I were no threat. We were then able to take pictures of my fun outfit, with no trouble… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: I’m on a hair accessories kick, right now. There’s just so many fun options! I’m especially loving hippie headbands. They look like fun, modern day crowns.  I’m not completely convinced I can pull it off (and my husband informed me he’s not a fan), but I figured I would give it a shot with this gold leaf headband. I picked it up at Rue 21 for a few dollars. I am… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: My husband and I just recently celebrated our 2 year anniversary! I decided to get extra dressed up for the occasion, fascinator and all. I’ve always wanted a fascinator, but I never had the courage to buy one until a couple weeks ago. This is an inexpensive one from Icing that is very comfortable. It’s a good starter fascinator in, my opinion. It’s not too over-the-top, and it’s not too heavy…. Read more »

Last Updated on November 12, 2019 I don’t usually get too personal on my blog. I try to keep the content light and fun. However, for this post I’m going to take the time to explain my life a little better. I think a good starting point will be my wedding. That’s what the above pictures are of. As you can see, we didn’t have the big fairy tale wedding with the white dress. We were married in a courthouse,… Read more »

Last Updated on September 28, 2017 It’s been a while since I posted a travel post! I’ll explain why that is soon, but first, let me explain where we are in these pictures. The above pictures are of Indianhead Ski Resort in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We were invited by our friends to spend New Years at the resort with them. It was a wonderful time! I personally am a terrible downhill skier, so I opted for snowshoeing while… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look:   This is the first outfit I wore in 2015! And what better way to start off the new year than wearing Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year? If you haven’t heard yet, Marsala is this year’s color. (Don’t worry I just recently found out this was a thing, as well. Click here to learn more.) My Marsala colored cardigan is a Christmas gift from my mom (she has great taste)…. Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: I have a confession. I bought these tights for the sole purpose of matching this awesome purple lip gloss. I’m a bit surprised myself at just how much I love this vampy purple lip color. I don’t generally blog about makeup, just because I don’t feel this is an area I have much expertise. I mean let’s be honest, short of switching my lip color from nude to red on occasion,… Read more »

Last Updated on March 21, 2016 There are so many things in this post I love, I’m having a hard time deciding where to start. From the flower crown to the Jump From Paper bag to my fluffy sweater…it all makes me so happy! OK, I’ll start with the Jump From Paper bag, just because a lot of people don’t believe it’s actually real when they see pictures. I can assure you it’s very real, and it is so awesome!… Read more »

Last Updated on December 12, 2017 Shop the look: Who says you can’t wear brown and black together? I’m not sure, but it’s something that’s been ingrained in my brain forever…that is, until I bought these boots. I haven’t bought a new pair of boots in a few years, but I really liked the way these looked…even if they broke the age-old “don’t mix brown with black” rule. They are also very comfortable, and I really like the way they… Read more »

Snoopy Sweater

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 ‘Tis the season for ugly Christmas sweaters. I must admit, though, I don’t think my sweater is all that ugly. I honestly bought it because I think it’s cute and wanted to wear it for Christmas. I found this sweater at Target, and when I was checking out a lady started asking me about the “Ugly Sweater” party I was going to. I was confused and then a little worried about my taste in… Read more »

Last Updated on June 4, 2019 Shop the look: I’m another year older today! The pictures above are of my “birthday outfit” (not to be confused with suit, haha). I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday over the weekend. My husband had taken me out to eat to a lovely Mediterranean restaurant in downtown Appleton. (If you’re ever in the Appleton area definitely check out Il Angolo Resto Bar. It is the best restaurant in Appleton!) I couldn’t tell… Read more »
