Something I love about my little sister's style is that she's always wearing something bright. She found these cute little pointy-toe flats at Walmart, of all places. Looks like wally world is stepping up its game. Great find, Hillary!

I helped dress my brother and mom for my brother's Catholic Confirmation this week. The confirmation candidates were asked to wear red, so I thought the best way he could incorporate some red easily without having to go out and spend much, and still look modern, was in a tie. Fashion can be scarce in my small town. The malls don't have the greatest of store options, but we've learned to work with what we've got. My mom and I were surprised to find this one at JCPenny; slim and straight, not too sheeny with a dash of red. We'll take it.
Oh, and the other handsome young fellow with the nice eyes.. that's his friend Colin.

a thousand words

I'm really loving Harper's Bazaar's minimal type treatment for their covers. I find the pictures more compelling than bold headlines, making these issues look more like decorative coffee table magazines.
Less is definitely more.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

An h&m sweater with pot o' gold shine, green kicks and hair strips, and a tasty ol' donut to top off me mornin'.

UW Fashion Week

I was invited this week to take part in a blogger panel for University of Wisconsin's first ever Fashion Week put on by MODA Magazine. It was so nice to meet the students and fellow Midwest bloggers for a night discussing the world of blogging, creating an online presence and, of course, fashion. The other blogs included Style Block, What I WoreFashion Farm Boy, and Flash Revolutions. What a fashionable-looking group!

cowboy + wind

plaid shirt: abercrombie & fitch
sleeveless sweater: chico's
infinity scarf: h&m
jeans: tj maxx
boots: gap
cuff: kohl's
It's so refreshing being able to walk outside in light layers. I even left my house with wet hair. No need for a blow dryer with this glorious, unseasonably warm wind! I am A-OK with 60 degree weather in early March in Wisconsin. The day called for some color, so blue, plaid, and my little Gap red leather cowboy booties (which I got for pennies compared to their original price) it was! The sleeveless sweater was my grandma's that she didn't want anymore. Her wardrobe is surprisingly hip, and she's always had such great and classy taste. I think I get my love for clothes from her.
Time to go enjoy more of this day!

crayola ola ola

vest: gap
pants: the limited
striped button-up: old navy
shoes: old navy
blazer: h&m
socks: old navy
I've never really been a green kind of girl, but for some reason these little snake skin flats struck my fancy. I don't know if it was the $8 price tag or the rich emerald color.. or the fact that my brain uncontrollably started to put together all the ways I could wear them, which is something I do a lot.. my brain is very persuasive and at times dangerously good at figuring out how to pick up something that I don't even really want and think of 101 different ways to wear it, (wow this is getting to be a long sentence.. almost done) forcing me to buy it even though I don't exactly need it. Some say it's a skill, but I consider it a slight sickness. The blazer I have on was a great buy; neutral, modern fit, can go with everything, $20 closet staple? Yes, please. As for the mismatching socks.. it was done on purpose.
