The Perfect Holiday Dress // Monday Mode Link Up + It Cosmetics Giveaway

Perfect Holiday Dress Perfect Holiday Dress Perfect Holiday Dress Perfect Holiday Dress

Happy Monday! Here is to another week! My week has a very snowy start. I spent all day Sunday baking a cake to bring into work, and watching Shameless! Obsessed with that show. I don’t know how I didn’t start watching it sooner!

Today’s dress is the perfect holiday dress in my opinion. It’s flattering, unique and has those little details that allow to wear it without any accessories. For the past couple of months I’ve been avoiding wearing any sort of jewelry. I don’t know what it is, probably just a stage šŸ™‚ haha My dress is by LATTORI, and the booties are Kenneth Cole Reaction I got on Hautelook a few years ago. Ā I’ve selected some similar products for you to check out below:


As promised, we have another holiday giveaway for you! This one is even better than the last! I’ve been obsessed with It Cosmetics for about a year now, and I wanted to share the hype with you today! It Cosmetics has recently become available at Ulta, and you can enter to win a set of 5 brushes, and two ornaments that include Confidence in a Cream and Super Hero mascara! Good luck!

Happy December! Winter is finally here, it snowed in Milwaukee today, and even though it will probably melt away, I love it! I am taking out all my flannels, warm pajamas and hot chocolate. I am also counting down days till my winter break! Wait what? With the amount of days the company is giving us off, and the time I took off, I will have Dec 22 – Jan 1 off! How cool is that? I feel like I am back in college! I am also really excited to go to Minnesota for Christmas! Make plans now, before my calendar gets booked šŸ™‚ Haha

Today’s look is a combination of a few of my favorite things: menswear inspired coat that I spruced up with a vintage bee pin, thrifted handmade cable knit sweater and Timberland foldover boots.

And there you have it friends!

In Bordeaux // Monday Mode Link Up

Happy Monday! I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving! I feel so fortunate I got to spend it with my friend Kaitlyn and her family!

The rest of this long weekend was spent catching up on reading, blogging and organizing my apartment. I also got to see my friend Jessica and catch up on what’s going on in Minneapolis.

Today’s outfit is a layering masterpiece, at least in my book! I am usually not very good at layering. I find it difficult to find pieces that go together, but this time maybe it’s the bordeaux color that helps me pull it off together.

Once again all the photos are by @kaitlyn.luckow and if you like my outfit, you can shop it or similar pieces below:

Fall has been incredible this year. It’s been so nice and warm here lately, and I am hoping and praying the winter will hold off for as long as possible. Yes, I am looking forward to Christmas, I love this weather.

Today I am sharing another LATTORI dress with you, this one is probably my favorite. The soft velvet flowers, the burnt orange, the incredible flare of the skirt. This is fall in a dress.

I hope you are enjoying every last bit of fall wherever you are. Please join our weekly link up and help us spread the word!

Every time Monday comes around, I feel kind of cheated. The weekend flew by and instead of being a fun after party, the first day of the week always hits meĀ like a bucket of cold water. I am slowly getting myself into a habit of enjoying this day of the week, being happy and looking forward to a new week!

I spent this weekend in Minneapolis, got to go to my favorite food places, a fashion show, but most importantly, I got to see my friends. I was hoping to have some photos of the outfit I wore by today, but unfortunately I don’t.

September is flying by so quickly, and while some may complain, I am so excited for October! Getting ready for friends and family to visit, Sam’s Birthday, and Halloween! Plus all the pumpkin patches and apple orchards to visit! I need to find some good ones in the Milwaukee area!

Pops of Color

Pops of Color Pops of Color Pops of Color Pops of Color Pops of Color

Outfit: Bright redĀ lipstick, neon belt and my new favorite blue shoes are the key pieces in this simple outfit. The shirt dress is another proof that black and white areĀ my go to colors and I won’t beĀ gravitating away from them anytime soon.

Life: I am officially a Milwaukeean, all moved into a new apartment, finally unpacked and feeling at home. A part of me still can’t believe that I am finally here, a university graduate, working my first corporate job. I’ve been waiting for this moment since November, but it all seems so surreal to me still.

Miscellaneous: Sam and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary yesterday.

I’ve been insanely obsessed with the gym.

Frustrated by the lack of Targets in the area.

Mesmerized by the beauty of lake Michigan.

PS. Thank you Megan for the photos!

Monday Motivation

With our kind of happening at the momentĀ move, my new job, trying to figure out our way around a new city and everything else in between, I decided it would be wise to create some sort of a blog schedule to stick to. My Monday motivation is to figure what thatĀ schedule will be. I am leaning towards a two posts a week schedule, that will allow me to write one style and one beauty related post. I think this will be the easiest thing to do, since I can shoot an outfit over the weekend, as well as focus on a beauty product review or creating my monthly favorites round up. What do you guys think? I don’t want to aim for the moon at this point. I am preparing myself for an exciting, yet challenging stage in my life, and want to take things slow. If any of you have tips on how to do that, they would be greatly appreciated. I don’t want to give up on blogging, as I am enjoying it immensely. However, I don’t want it to take over my free time.

Sam and I went to Milwaukee for a hot second over theĀ weekend. It was a really short trip, we left MinneapolisĀ on Saturday around 8.30 am, and came back on Sunday around 6 pm. All we wanted to do is get keys to our new apartment, and move in as much stuff as weĀ fit the night before into his mom’s car (which is a lot bigger than ours). When we were unpacking, some of the boxses’ contents was a total surprise to me. You see, the stuff has been packed since end of May, early June, so I forgot what was in what box. And the onlyĀ labeling I did was writeĀ “Fragile” on some of the boxes.

One of the reasons I am really excited about our new apartment, and why we decided against getting a house, is the opportunity to downsize. I have piles of stuff I’ve been planning on using in my DIY projects, clothes that I will “someday” wear, office supplies, etc. I think I’ve been able to downsize significantly since we sold our house, but I want to organize everything as well. That’s why a couple weeks ago I bought two books on the KonMari method. I will definitely keep you posted on how that goes. So stay tuned.

All of the photos in the post are from my photoshoot for ALACLOTH! I have some rad jeans one too! I will definitely miss my Minneapolis blogger/social media family, so if you are in Milwaukee or know someone there, send them my way! I am a firm believer that blogger friends are the best friends!

Thrift Style Thursday Link-Up // July 7 // Blonde Power

Blonde power Blonde power Blonde power Blonde power Blonde power Blonde power Blonde power

Last week I mentioned my Schoola haul. This week I really wanted to share this Blonde Power shirt by Pam + Gela and how I styled it for Thrift Style Thursday. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve gotten so many compliments on this tee, I want to wear it every day!

Heels and vintage Lee jeans cut offs made sense, and the location was more than perfect. Alacloth took me to Milwaukee street, located right across from the Seward Pizza Luce. If you’ve never been to Milwaukee street, you must go! It’s 2 blocks of pedestrian historic heaven, charm and beauty. You won’t want to leave!

And of course the fact that it’s called Milwaukee street, and I am moving to Milwaukee made complete sense. Sadly, it was probably my last photoshoot with Alacloth for a while, but she’s promised to visit me in Wisconsin. Plus we are already planning on going thrifting there!

I hope you all had a happy and safe 4th of July! I’ve never been so busy over a holiday weekend before. I went to a BBQ, a housewarming, fireworks in Bloomington, and at Steph’s house. Hung out with so many friends, I couldn’t have asked for more! We did have a scare when one of the neighbors lost their dog, but they found her today all safe and sound!

I think it’s time for the link up! Share your outfits below! I can’t wait to check them out!
