Friday Favorite: A Girl in a Checked Dress

Online shopping. An activity I used to partake in on a regular basis. These past few months I’ve reigned myself back, learned a little self control and haven’t online shopped. Mind you I do have a list of things bookmarked that I will purchase someday but my impulse buying days are behind me. I got…

An Oxblood Blazer Meets Stripes and Wool

I’m not sure if colored blazers were ever officially a huge trend but they sure were in my book. I own a blazer in the following colors: oxblood, mustard yellow, tan and floral printed.  Boy do I love a good blazer. When picking out the perfect blazer I look for 3 specific qualities:    …

Radio Silence

Hello All, I’ll be back to regular posting Thursday, I need to get ahead on homework. Until then, enjoy this song by one of my favorite bands, The Naked and Famous. WARNING: The video is kind of strange but the song is good.

Friday Favorites: This City

Madison, Wisconsin has forever stolen my heart. From the opportunities I’ve had, to the people I’ve met, the cuisine I’ve tried, to the experiences I’ve had. This city is nothing short of magical. Thank you for shaping me into who I’ve become, Madison. Maybe these pictures will help you to understand why.

Mug Shots

In September of 2013 I achieved quite the milestone in my life; I became a loyal daily coffee drinker. I’m not to the point where I can’t function without a cup o’ joe in the morning, which is good. Actually, I rarely drink coffee after I wake up in the morning. I usually drink it…

A Tribute

January 22, 2008, at the mere age of 28, Heath Ledger passed away from accidental prescription drug overdose in New York, NY. Leaving behind a beautiful daughter Matilda and an impressive young acting career. Today I pay tribute to Heath because his ability to completely dive into each and every character and full embody their…

Winter Boots and A Series of Unfortunate Events

Shoe Shopping. Nothing makes me happier than strolling hour after hour through shoe aisle after show aisle. Trying on only the strongest smelling leather loafers and wobbling on only the highest of sparkling pumps. When I’m at DSW, I’m in my element. Though shopping with companions is always a lot more enjoyable, when I step…

Wok it Out

Friends take note, if there is one thing I want as a marriage gift it would be a wok. Don’t get me wrong blenders, food processors and china tea sets will make me quite the happy camper but our wok has stolen my heart. When I say “our wok” I mean the wok my parents…

Friday Favorite: Sequin Skirt

I have been dreaming about this skirt for some time now. And I finally found a perfect occasion to buy it for, my birthday. Still a month away I have plenty of time to pick between the green version or the pink one. Though the pink skirt is closer to nude in color, which will…

Let the Training Begin!

Today is the first official training day for the 2014 Tough Mudder!  Did I mention I was a tough mudder? Well, I did it last year for the first time with three girls that I have been best friends with for quite some time. And we had an absolute blast. I’m not going to lie…

The Great Coat Debate

I have been looking for a new wool winter coat for years. No lie, it has been years. My indecisive nature doesn’t help either. One of the main reasons for my hesitance is because this is an investment piece, something I will wear everyday in the winter for many many years to come. Talk about…

Winter Florals

Yes, the floral trend of 2013 did sweep me off my feet; I have my three pairs of floral pants and floral blazer as proof. And yes, I will continue to wear my floral clothing anytime and anywhere throughout 2014. My favorite part about a floral ensemble is that anyone can pull off this look….
