Spring Is In the Air.

This weekend, we had our first taste of spring weather in Wi! Hooray- 60’s in March is a big deal in the Midwest! This is the time of year when I start to crave having bare legs and wearing nothing but dresses. Ahhh… I can just see it now- feminine lace, bright pops of color, beautiful spring sunshine. I am definitely missing my posts in dresses. So here’s a post from last spring- I can’t wait to get back outside for my photoshoots! This post takes me back to those warm days!

There are some days when you just need an outfit that can take you anywhere while you do anything! This is one of those incredible pieces that will do just that! This lace dress is elegant, sophisticated, professional, and fun all in one! I paired it with a simple over-sized blazer for a classic look that is office, errand, and night-out ready! SO versatile- you gotta LOVE this one!

Photos taken by my loving husband! This perfect lace dress is from Sheinside. Sandals are from Ann Taylor. Purse is from a privately owned boutique. Here is a similar purse from Francescas.. The boyfriend blazer is an INCREDIBLE DEAL from Forever 21 (fits a little large). Gold Drop necklace was purchased on etsy (it’s also available in different sizes, fonts, and sterling silver! This is my go-to, everyday necklace that looks good with any look!)

The Unexpected Photos Are My Fav.

If there is one thing I have learned in my short time dabbling in photography, it is that the best shots come along at random. At times I drag my camera along with me and find absolutely nothing worth shooting, but other times, it just so happens that I catch a hidden jem. Sometimes, the most insignificant picture, that most people may have never lifted their camera for, turns out to be one of my absolute favs! In fact, I would say there are many pictures that I have taken that make me smile simply because they are so quirky and unexpectedly beautiful. Here is a small collection of those moments from the past 6 months or so. The next time you think about leaving your camera at home- remember to expect the unexpected!

The PERFECT Blazer

Well I can’t believe it as I write this post, but it is the middle of August already… CRAZY! With the wedding and honeymoon in June and July, and now my new position at work, this summer has absolutely disappeared! And the weather seems to be constantly reminding us that fall is just around the corner. Ryley and I had some running around to do the other day, and I needed something that said “heyyy- it’s still summer- but yeah… i kinda do need a jacket.” This blazer is the absolute BEST purchase I have made in a longgg time! It is comfortable, classy, and greatttt quality! I know what you’re thinking- how could it get any better? 😉 Well, it is also affordable and OH SO soo versatile!!! As you will see I have paired this with shorts and a textured tee for a casual look, but I soooo can’t wait to wear this with a dress and some heals, or with a nice pencil skirt for a more professional look! From errands to work to play- this blazer could NOT beeee more PERFECT!!! Yay!! 🙂 Oh, and have I mentioned that these new white leather loafers are my new obsession- they go with EVERYTHING!

Okay, so this beyond believable blazer is from H&M and excellent quality. They are currently sold out, so the link is to a similar H&M blazer! Here is another similar blazer. The black and white tee is very old- just pick a comfy tee of any color to make this look work! This tribal tee from Forever 21 would work great!! Shorts are from Hollister- they are a destroyed, medium wash- similar here. The watch is from The Limited (old- similar here). The amazzzzing chandelier earrings are from Ann Taylor- here is a pair that is probably even more amazing than the pair I was wearing! Sunglasses are Kenneth Cole- see similar here. Annnd- those white loafers I am obsessed with are from Aldo here.
