Milwaukee in a Day

Our trip to Milwaukee was short and sweet, but completely captivating, and I can’t wait for a chance to go back. Sam got lucky, he spent more time in the city than I did. Since I spent all day Saturday at the Blogger Bazaar, I only got a couple hours on Sunday in downtown and by the water front. Here are some pictures from our trip, as well as more pictures from the blogger event, including pictures from RpKeskar Photography. Enjoy!

This past weekend flew by (even though we spent 10 hours in the car!) Some of you know that I travelled down to Milwaukee for the Blogger Bazaar, so here are a few recap photographs, and shout outs to my new and old blogger friends and a couple pictures. There will be a separate post about our very short (about 3 hours) visit to the waterfront and downtown. But I will tell you this – I loved every minute of it, it was a blessed time and I am so glad I went!

And how about that maxi dress? I was so comfortable in it all day! It was definitely the right attire choice. For more awesome maxi dresses go here:


I hope you all had an amazing weekend! More photos from mine to come!


More Mod {Thrift Style Thursday} + Announcement + Giveaway

I was really struggling recreating a mod look for today’s thrift style thursday post. Not everyone is Twiggy, and it’s even harder to transform into her sometimes. A few years ago, when I just started my blog, I did this Twiggy inspired makeup look, but today it is full on clothes! So I created two looks, which one is more mod, which one you like the best – you decide!
