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.
For the Day:
Whatever you do today, make sure you enjoy it!
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!

Waking up in the morning with the sun shining through the window. The day upon you looks relaxing and calm. You turn on the Relaxing Radio station on Pandora and consider what you might do today. Getting out of bed, you put on a comfy yet elegant skirt, cute red shirt and your go to cardigan to keep off the morning chill. Looking in your jewelry box you see the perfect gold necklace that makes you think of Paris. A pair of heart earrings, a cross ring, and those two stylish gold bracelets complete your jewelry look. Heading out to the living room you pick up your spacious and animal friendly tote bag with your two pins ‘I’ve got your 6’ and ‘Yellow Support the Troops ribbon’ on it. You easily fit your wallet, keys, mobile phone, book, small laptop, camera, water bottle, and small odds and ends pouch in the tote. Kiss the cat good-bye and head down stairs to slip on your black ballet flats. Out the door you go for a relaxing day that can take you anywhere. And you are ready to go anywhere today.

A little note on the book: Greeting From Afghanistan Send More Ammo by Benjamin Tupper, this is not a book that you would sit down and read all the way through in one day. You could but you’d probably understand it better if you read it over a time period. I’m almost half way through this book and would recommend it to every one!
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.
