For the pinks; I wear impassioned the most of theese three colors, it is such a fun bright shade that is flattering on so many skin tones.

The plums are the colors I wear the most during the week, craving and plumful are my staples and I aways have one of these on me!

Red is my favorite color lipstick to wear, it is such a classic color and I love the statement it can make. My favorite colors from MAC are All Fired Up and Ruby Woo!

Fall Transition Layers

Kimono // Tank // Skirt ( I got the tall verson here)// Chanel Handbag (similar here) // Lace  up wedges // Lipstick: Rebel // Lipliner: Beet

Happy first day of fall!!!

I cannot believe I am even writing those words as it is currently 89 degrees in Chicago and feels like 93!!! People are on the beach in September!

Its the unpredicable fall weather that makes layers and fall colors so important this time of the year. I love finding neutrals and fall berry colors that I can layer and lighten up with a white camisole. This white cami is absolutely the cutest thing ever and is finally back in stock in a couple of size. It goes so fast so RUN! 
My skirt is from the tall section at ASOS which I absolutely adore. I love mini skirt, but I am also tall so I usually cannot wear them from the regular section at stores. ASOS has so many of their cute styles also offered in tall which is just music to my ears!!!
This kimono is absolutely a fall essential. It has burnout velvet flowers which is ultra luxurious and looks so great draped over a tank with jeans, a skirt or even over your favorite solid dress with some over the knee boots!!

Happy First Fall Friday!!!

Derby Bridal Shower

This past weekend my sister, sister-in-law and Godmother threw me the most gorgeous Kentucky Derby themed Bridal Shower. The space was gorgeous, the food was fantastic, the details were spot-on, but the women there were honestly what made the shower so unbelievably perfect. I feel so blessed to have such amazing and thoughtful people in my life. 

I will link outfit details/ products below!

Table runners // Rose Garland // Cake Stand // Mint Julep Vases
How amazing is this Rose Cake?
My little Niece our Flower Girl!
Fascinator // White Dress // Heels (similar)// Lipstick; Hot 305
My best friend Lauren put together these amazing goody bags with a bottle of La Marca Prosecco and a Voluspa candle! They were so perfect!

Throughout this wedding process I've really wanted to make sure I soaked up every single minute of each of these events...yes a bridal shower is tradition/customary but I made  a promise to myself to not let it feel like that. I want to appreciate and be present in every second of this wedding process because I only get to do this once. Each experience is the one and only time I get to do this!! I want to celebrate with the people I love and embrace every minute of this fun bridal journey.

HOT pink shorts

Shorts // Scalloped Tank Top // Tassel Handbag // Heels // Lipstick; Girl About Town

Pink has always been a color I have been super drawn too, it is such a happy color and such a statement maker. It is also so girly and I am a huge fan of anything girly and fabulous.
I wore these shorts in Florida on vacation and cannot wait to wear them again this summer. They are so light and are perfect for wearing during the day or you can definitely dress them up with heels for a summer night out!

Embroidered Shorts

Top // Shorts // Tassel Crossbody // Sandals // Sunglasses (similar) // Lipcolor; Lady Danger

One of my favorite trends for this spring is definitely embroidery. There are so many pieces that I am just loving so much! I have been loving the embroidered denim at Topshop and Zara, but also comfy sweatshirts with rose embroidery as asos! It is just a fun trend and I cannot wait to scoop up some more pieces, especially since it is finally starting to get nice out!

Where to shop for swimwear

Suit // Hat

I don't know about you but the fact that Victoria Secret no longer sells swimwear was a huge inconvenience to my yearly swim haul!!! I have been shopping around however, and have found a new really fun place called Romwe to get fashion forward and affordable swimwear.
I have a bachelorette party for one of my best friends coming up in June and I have already started thinking of the swimwear I want for the trip. I had to have this red top with the floral bottom but I am also in love with this one, this off the shoulder suit and this amazing one piece! They also have amazing accessories for the beach like this towel that is SO PERFECT for Instagram pics ladies!

White Ruffles

Top // Shorts (similar also here & here)  // Heels // Sunglasses 

Last week I was in Florida with my family for a week in the sun before my official move to Chicago and start date at my new job. It was so nice to relax and de-stress after a long month of moving, and getting a new job. I am now settled into three days of my new work week and so far everything is really great. 
It has been constant cloud cover since I flew into Chicago on Sunday so these sunny blog photos from last week are really making me miss that Florida sunshine! I live in a high rise in Chicago and have not been able to see out my window since sunday because it is so cloudy/foggy! I am hoping for a sun filled weekend to make up for it! :) 
I wore these shorts for almost half of my trip in florida, they pair so well with so many fun summy tops and my personal favorite is denim paired with a white top. I think that it always looks so fresh and summery! These heels are also a closet staple for spring/summer and are currently on sale!!

I love the month of February for so many reasons. I love Valentines day and the celebration of love. Love in all forms...I buy a card for almost everyone I know and could honestly spend hours in the card section at Target. I may or may not have teared up in the Target card aisle a time or two in my life. What can I say..I am absolutely the most sentimental shmuck and I love Valentines Day!

I am sending Dave a sweet card and these in a cute little package. I hope he loves them because I heard they are amazing! I also think that +Harry's Razors make great gifts, as well as the tried and true Another great gift for valentines day would be to head away for a fun weekend with your love and pack them a new duffle like this one!

I rounded up some cute things I automatically think of when it comes to Valentines Day...cute jammies, bubble bath, lipstick! But honestly when it comes to gifts that I love to receive on Valentines day it is not so much the material absolute favorite thing to do is have an extra long dinner with Dave. A bottle of wine and even dessert so that we can talk for hours.

Bold & Bright

Coat (mine is super old but here is another similar) // Scarf // Denim // Cardigan // Striped Top // Shoes (similar here & here) // Handbag // Lipstick; Le Fuschsia

The fog has been relentless in Milwaukee for the past week. I had to throw on some bight colors to try to break away from the gloominess! I love this kelly green cardigan for spring transition and even into the summer. I love kelly green with navy and cannot wait to pair this with a navy and white striped skirt or dress! This striped top one of my new favorite items. I love the contrasting stripe ruffle trim down the front, its perfect for work or play!
I have a short work week this week as I am taking off Friday to head to Minneapolis to pick up my Wedding Dress! It was not supposed to be ready until March but it is here early and I cannot even wait to try it on again!
