Romantic Dress and a Hay Field

It has been just about a year since Ryley and I became homeowners for the first time! When we started looking for a home in which to begin our life together, we knew one thing- we wanted OUT of the city! We wanted to TOTALLY get away from the hustle and bustle and to wake up each morning to a gentle breeze blowing across the countryside. The only problem- we also wanted a house with modern amenities. We ended up in the quaint small town of Ashippun, Wi. It is a perfect blend of the two things we wanted- it is totally country, but we live in a small neighborhood where we found a newer built home. Now that we are settled here, one of our favorite things to do is to take walks at night after dinner. This is when we often talk about our future, our dreams, and learn about the intricate thoughts that make each of us tick. SOO important! The other night, on one of our walks, I noticed that the farmer in our neighborhood had just freshly cut his hay field. We HAD to sneak in for a few pics in one of the most romantic white dresses you can possibly imagine!!! It has small white textured dots on it, an incredible neckline and a crazy-cute bow around the waste! It is a soft, light fabric- so chic and comfortable! I paired this intricate dress with a pair of blush feminine heals and a matching blush purse. I just love the gold accents on the purse!! It is an amazing shape and is just the right size for an every day piece! My favorite part of the outfit is actually the earrings! They are vintage earrings that pull the whole look together and really emphasize the romantic textures in the dress. This might be the MOST ROMANTIC outfit I could ever find!! It is sooo sweet and sentimental!! There is just something about the ivory and the textures- this dress is all kinds of pretty!

Photos taken by my husband in Ashippun, Wi. This incredible dress is from Ann Taylor. The shoes are from Famous Footwear (old- similar pair here at Aldo). Purse is from The Limited (similar here). The earrings were purchased at forever 21- these are a MUST HAVE- so versatile and yet so detailed (I love this pair! Or these! This pair is the closest to what I am wearing above! Also very close!)

Enjoy an evening out in this beautiful, soft, romantic ensemble!

 

Ladies LOVE Lace!

This past year in April, Ryley and my spring break schedules didn’t line up so Ryley took a personal day to spend time with me during my break. Aweee… Anyway, there was snow on the ground but we were both itching for sun and spring, so we ventured off to find a nature park near our new house! We stumbled across this beautiful park just a few blocks away which was breathtaking even with all the yucky snow! They even had a small mini-golf area with a big Snoopy (see below!!!) ! We knew we HAD to go back once it got nice! During this time of year, I love a comfy, chic tank with lots of romantic detail. I also ADORE all white! Nothing like a romantic lace tank to make you feel like a lady! You just CAN”T go wrong with lace and all white this time of year!! So feminine and elegant! I decided to pair this tank with a nice big shoulder bag with a beautiful texture since another school year is about to start back up and I just know I will need a nice big bag! And the loafers I picked here are feminine and girly and look great with the brown bag!
