Last Tuesday was simply wonderful! I finally managed to leave work on time and make it to a Milwaukee Bloggers Meet Up at the Iron Horse hotel arranged by my friend Katherine of Bordeaux Blvd. 

I’ve been living in Milwaukee for over a year now and only met a few of the bloggers in person, so this was a perfect opportunity to put faces to Instagram handles and have some real life time with everyone!

I hope you enjoy photos from the event and check out everyone’s blogs!

Between sponsored posts, photoshoots and accounting classes, I try and find some downtime. I have always loved this bridge connecting Sculpture Garden and Loring Park. And while Sculpture Garden lays there, demolished, sculptures removed, trees cut down, waiting for its reopening next June, Loring Park is still there. A little green oasis in the middle of the Hennepin/Lyndale construction mess. I find this comparison to be a strange yet applicable allegory to my life. I’m moving from Minneapolis where I’ve lived for the past 5 years. The move is exciting, stressful. I tend to worry, question my decisions, look for signs. But then I remember that I need to take ownership, stick to my guts, and keep going. It’s time to move on, and I will be doing just that!

I’ve been dying to wear this olive skirt for a while now. Sometimes I wonder if it’s too short for me, but today it was just right! The elephant print top has been my go to during hot and humid summer days, it has an open back, and is so breezy, I’m so close to being a covergirl 😉

And now for the link up – share your looks, whether they are thrifted or not, and make sure to help spread the word about this link-up through social media if you have a chance! Thank you, can’t wait to see your looks!

Happy Saturday, and welcome to my new weekly wear series. Every Saturday morning I will be here, showing you what I wore that week. Showing you, how my daily style changes throughout weeks, months, seasons. This will also be a link up, a chance for you to show some of your weekly outfits. Who is excited?

Apparently this week started on Tuesday, since I completely forgot to photograph the Monday outfit. Plus I wanted to make it interesting and not have the same background or pose. Thursday look was also featured in this post. But I think Friday one is my favorite. I have officially mastered layering.

I guess the theme for this week’s Weekly Wear is I thrifted it, I wore it. The Madewell top and Tommy Hilfiger jacket were thrifted on Tuesday. The black jeans from Friday look and Striped top from Thursday were my steals at the $1 Earth Day sale at Buffalo Exchange. The jeans are actually high waisted, and I promise to style them with a crop top sometime soon! I was ecstatic when I fit into them on Friday morning. It literally made my day.
