Outfit – Spring in the North

Spring in Wisconsin, it means you have to be ready for heat, cold, rain, floods, and snow storms.  And no, I’m not joking about the snow storm part, it’s happened before.  I think I carry more extra clothes around in Spring than any other season.  I can go to Lake Michigan in the morning wearing a jacket and pants, then drive out to my in-laws in Muskego and have to change into a skirt and a tank top.  It’s just all around crazy weather.  But it can be a little fun when you get to experience 4 season in one week 🙂

This outfit would be for a normal weekend day (I work all week and have no time to go anywhere. I live for the weekends)maybe start out at home on my balcony listening to the birds and the trains or at a coffee shop watching people be anti-social taping away on their computers.  Then downtown for some grocery shopping and a walk.  And who knows maybe I’ll end my evening at my mom’s, my dad’s or my in-law’s for a bonfire.

Two outfits, sometimes the second outfit is in the car and sometimes I go home in between to change.

Wedding Guest Outfit

This Saturday I will be attending a wedding as a guest.  This is the first time in about 4 years that I’ve been a guest instead of in the wedding party.  So, I get to have the fun of actually picking out what I want to wear and how I want to do my hair!  But, like normally I’ve decided to wait until now, 3 days before, to figure out what I’m going to wear!  This outfit is something that would be fun to wear to the wedding but would probably wouldn’t work since its going to be about 50 degrees.  But that really doesn’t matter much, since the last wedding I stood up in was on New Years Day, there was snow, it was 20 degrees out and we were wearing this dress (but in purple) outside taking pictures for about an hour. I was freezing!

On to the outfit!

Dress | Earrings | Necklace | Bracelets | Heels | Hair | Nails | Rings |Clutch

Hair – I don’t do my hair… at all, so a wedding is a great time for me to splurge and pay to get my hair done.  Hopefully it will look a little like this, but with extensions because my hair is above my shoulders.
Dress – So freakn’ Cute! and it looks comfy but still dressy!
And because I love to go overboard on my fashion boards,  Some ideas of things to take for the night stay after the wedding, plus day after outfit idea

after wedding

PJs | Sunglasses | Hat | Tunic | Leggings | Shoes | Bag

Ok, I went a little overboard and now I want all of these things from Forever 21!

Outfit of the Week – Versatile Outfit for my Sister-in-law

For this weeks outfit I wanted to create something for my sister-in-law.  I was trying to figure out an outfit with the colors she likes and pieces that can be fashioned with clothing she already has.  Plus, I wanted find some pieces that she could wear together as an outfit for when my brother comes home from deployment.

So here are the clothing pieces I came up with.  I might have gone a little over board with the jewelry/accessories but you can never go wrong with having plenty of options for icing on your outfit!

Outfit of the Week – Military inspired slightly

It’s snowing outside again, not that much.  We’ll only get 6-8 inches, nothing like the east coast will be getting tomorrow.  Looking at some of the spring fashion/clothes coming out and it looks like the military styled or inspired clothes are back.  I like using a little bit of the inspiration in my outfits but I just can’t wear camouflage.  I personal feel that camouflage is for military members, I don’t know why it’s just how I feel.  The outfit below is just slightly military inspired with the jacket.  You could always switch out the jacket for a vest and the sandals for a pair of ‘combat’ style boots.

Outfit – Christmas day

Christmas day,  the day that we get together with our family and spend time together.  For me, it can sometimes involve going to about 4 houses in one day.  Lucky, this year I only have on house a day for 3 days.  Having in-laws and divorced parents makes holidays interesting.  This outfit will work great if your going to someone else’s house or spending the holiday at home with your family.
