Tokyo outfit post

Shop the look:   You probably can’t tell by these photos, but I swear I’m in Tokyo. Haha. This little alley is right next to my apartment and was the first quiet place I had noticed when looking for spots to take photos. I have since found a whole bunch of out-of-this-world beautiful locations to take photos. So, I swear, from here on out…my backgrounds will do Tokyo some justice. I had also promised to talk a little about what… Read more »

stylish surprise cardigan

Remember last week when I said that I was getting back in the habit of dressing up and such? I take it back! That’s because that was before the temperature dipped into the single/negative digits. I’m right back to wearing cozy cardigans and boots – sorry! But this particular cardigan I’ve been meaning to show you all for quite a while, now. This fun, asymmetrical, cardigan was my “apparel” mystery item in ModCloth’s Stylish Surprise this last fall. Again, this… Read more »

Shop the look: It’s that time of year where dreams of flowers and warmer weather are dancing in our heads. However, there’s still snow on the ground, and there’s no end to the chilly temperatures in sight. This outfit is my attempt to brighten up my cold weather blues but still be warm and cozy. I love the embroidered peonies on this sweater and the bright reddish pink color. It’s a nice cardigan for spring, but it’s still warm enough… Read more »

Shop the look:   This is the first outfit I wore in 2015! And what better way to start off the new year than wearing Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year? If you haven’t heard yet, Marsala is this year’s color. (Don’t worry I just recently found out this was a thing, as well. Click here to learn more.) My Marsala colored cardigan is a Christmas gift from my mom (she has great taste). This is a wonderfully comfortable cardigan…… Read more »

Shop the look: Who says you can’t wear brown and black together? I’m not sure, but it’s something that’s been ingrained in my brain forever…that is, until I bought these boots. I haven’t bought a new pair of boots in a few years, but I really liked the way these looked…even if they broke the age old “don’t mix brown with black” rule. They are also very comfortable, and I really like the way they go with my cardigan. This… Read more »

Shop the look: This cape-like sweater brings to mind images of Little Red Riding Hood, on her way her grandma’s house. While this sweater does not have the iconic hood, its stand-up collar is sure to keep you warm. I was actually on my way to meet me grandma (for Thanksgiving) in these photos. Haha. She and my grandpa live in northern Wisconsin near the tourist town of Minocqua. That’s why there’s so much snow in these pictures! This sweater… Read more »

Shop the look: Cardigans, boots and scarfs are staples once the chilly winds of fall set in. This fun peacock scarf and bright cardigan are a sure way to stand out and still be cozy. This peacock scarf from ModCloth is my favorite scarf at the moment. It’s very unique and can be worn with a plethora of outfits. I’ve styled it with everything from sweatshirts to dresses, and it works. The material is high quality but not too heavy…. Read more »

Shop the look: Here in Wisconsin, we are already reverting back to our normal chilly weather wardrobe. Summer was short-lived, but that’s OK, a comfy cardigan with peonies on it can brighten anyone’s cold weather blues. While summer will be sorely missed, it was nice to cuddle into a warm, soft sweater again and slip on a pair of jeans. This soft red colored cardigan, with little peonies embroidered on it, is wonderful. Not only is it adorable, it is… Read more »
