I love lace shirts

Hello hello!!! I don’t know about you but I absolutely love lace shirts.  I have almost no control when I see one I like, I need to buy it and add to my wardrobe.  Sometimes there is lining and sometimes there is not.  They just give this sophisticated vibe but also a sleek/ sexy edge that I love.

Anyways, I was in Milwaukee this weekend for Summerfest, if you don’t know what that is it’s an 11 day music festival and it’s awesome.  So I went on the forth and the temp was almost 80 during the day but once the sun went down it was going to drop, and the festival is on a lake so it’s a little cooler.  So I was deciding what to wear, I knew pants would be best but the top was up in the air.  I was having a debate between 2 new lace shirts.

So my debate was between wearing white lace or black lace.  The white lace shirt is not lined but with how the lace is it’s not too noticable.  My plan is to not wear an undershirt when I wear it going out, it will have an edge.  I was wearing it with a nudish bra but I feel like when I wear it to a bar a black bra will look sweet.  The black lace shirt is a crop top and it does have lining in it.  I’m not sure if I’m a fan of it being lined but the shirt looks great none the less.  I like that it showed off my stomach.  So both these shirts would be breathable for the day time but provide enough coverage that at night it would be warm enough.

So which one did I wear?  I personally loved the white lace outfit, because it was white and was longer.  My sister loved the black one because she thought it looked better.  So we had a disagreement, then I took pictures and decided to wear the black lace top.  It was amazing and worked out well.

I cannot wait to wear both of these in the future.

Let’s chill outside

Hello hello!!  So the college world series is in town and it is swealtering out.  I want to talk about ideas on how to choose an outfit that will be breathable during the day but still stylish enough to easily transition to a night outfit.

This is the outfit that I wore, I loved it and was very comfortable.  I wore these blue blue shorts, that are neither tight nor lose, they fit perfectly. I paired it with this white shirt that is super lose and billows in the wind and is just really breathable. I tucked in the front of the shirt to highlight my waist.

So why did this outfit work?  First the shorts weren’t super tight so they were very breathable and since they weren’t skin tight I didn’t think they were sticking to me the whole time. Second the shirt was key, picking a shirt that will billows in the wind was the best idea I had.  It was like getting hit with the wind twice.  This shirt in particular is awesome, because it has a lace detail going down the back so it kept my back cool.

Packing for Vacation

Hello Hello!! Finally going on my first vacation of the year and I am pretty pumped about it.  I have spent way too much time in the office and need to get out.  I have been looking forward to this since I bought the tickets.

A few friends and I are getting together later this week and going to the beach.  I am so excited for the beach, I have lofty goals of sitting on the beach and doing nothing for the time I am there.  So I have been looking through my closet thinking about what I need to pack.

Packing up my cute summer skirts, fun summery shorts and obviously my casual romper.  Also my like 5 swimsuits because you need variety when you are going to go relax on the beach.

I am going to be packing over the next few days and then hopefully will updated you with some vacation beach pictures.

Summer Sandals

Hello Hello! Sorry for the delay in getting a post up, I am getting ready to go on vacation and then move almost immediately when I get back so I’ve been stressing and procrastinating.

So I tend to make friends with people when I go out to the bar, usually with other women because we will talk about each others outfit and where we shop.  For the past few weeks I have been looking for a pair of heeled sandals that I can wear out in the summer.  I started off looking for wedges but those have never really been my favorite type of shoe.  But I did want them to be comfortable that I could wear them all night.  Here we come to the me making friends part, there was this girl at the bar wearing the most amazing shoes.  I randomly started talking to her and she told me she bought them at a boutique in town, ahh score.

So obviously I went over to the boutique the next day to see what they had for shoes.

I am in love with this nudish pink color that they are, I could not be happier.  The sandals I was looking at online were all designer shoes and were much more expensive.  These actually look like some designer sandals I thought about buying which makes me even happier.  The heel is only about 2 inches so these are shoes that can be worn all night if you want.

I have just been trying them on with every outfit I wear, I cannot wait to actually wear them out.

Finding these was great, I am so happy to know about these new Boutique.  It is called Mesh and you can order online.  Although I may go to the store more because they have adorable clothes.

Birthday Outfits

Hello Hello!! It was my birthday this past weekend, and I love dressing up and going out on my birthday.  It was cold and kind of shitty out this weekend so I didn’t quite get to wear the outfit I had pictured in my head but mother nature does what she wants.

There were a few different phases to my birthday so I may have changed outfits 2 times, haha yea try not to judge.  First, my friend and I have the same birthday so we met up for lunch and some drinks then I had some friends over to my place to chill, day drink, and play games then go out.

The one on the left was the outfit I wore to lunch with my friend.  It kind of took me awhile to land on this outfit I was pretty indecisive about what to wear.  I kind of re-discovered this shirt when I was cleaning out my closet, and I have been wanting to wear it since.  This tank top has a white cheetah print on the front and the back is all open with only black mesh on the back.  I decided to cover it up with the blazer since you know it was only lunch.  (I would love to share where I got this shirt but I bought it in college so I could not find it).

Outfit on the right, I was dying to wear.  I just bought this shirt and when I tried it on I knew immediately I wanted to wear it on my birthday.  It is right up my style ally right now, it is a long crop top so when paired with jeans it looks really good.  The deep embellished V is amazing, I absolutely loved it.  It was revealing that it showed off my bra a little but I decided I was okay with that.  I had originally thought about wearing it with black jeans but it was hard to tell where the shirt stopped and the jeans began so it looked better with these blue jeans.

I had a great time celebrating, but lets not talk about how old I am. Haha

Efficient and easy going out outfit

Hello hello!! I wanted to name this post how to get away with being the laziest person at the bar and no one noticing, then I remembered guys can just put on pants and no one questions them.

Anyways, this weekend I was having a chill night and somehow I was convinced to go out.  I didn’t want to spend a ton of time getting ready, so I went into my closet and looked for clothes that I could wear and it would look like I spent a lot of time getting ready.

This gets much easier in the summer/ spring when clothes are less bulky, but since we were down in the 50s that day I had to make do.  So I went for boots, jeans, and a pretty casual top. 

The reason this outfit really works and doesn’t look like it was just thrown on is due to the colored jeans, animal printed top and the leather jacket.  The colored jeans, I love to have these in my closet to mix in because she you wear them it’s unexpected and people tend to think you put more thought in rather then just throwing on regular jeans.  Animal printed tops are great if you don’t own one please buy one, I prefer zebra print. This one is actually a giraffe printed top, I got it years ago and it’s just been a great top that I can throw on.  As with the colored jeans most women don’t just throw on an animal printed top, so when you do it comes off as a statement.  (And it looks really great with the burgundy jeans).  Lastly, the leather jacket it’s just the toping on the outfit.  Finishes everything off and looks amazing.

This was my first time wearing the jacket and I could not be happier. This light grey color didn’t really match the grey of the boots which I will put as a slight critique but the jacket is amazing I couldn’t pass up wearing it.  It’s the blank NYC jacket, if you want the link I’ll get it but it was expensive.  Well worth the price in my opinion.

Is it summer yet?

Hello hello!! Finally we have strung together a few days of consistently 70 degree weather and I am ready for summer.  So much so that I am breaking out my summer going out clothes.  I am excited about the tank tops, lace shirts and light shirts, and wearing them out without a jacket.

Yes I was a little lazy this weekend and went with flats most days but in my defense this is the first time I can wear sandals so I am also really pumped for that as well.  I didn’t fully commit to the all summer feel since I didn’t bring out my shorts/ summer dresses/ rompers, but it just felt way to early for that.  So this weekend I stuck with jeans and my fun tops.  The grey one I have had forever, it is hard to describe but it has these small holes all over so it is like lace.  Of course the all over lace shirt I bought in the fall I am dying to wear it in the summer.  Then my classic chill tank top that I wear all the time in the summer.

I can feel it, lace shirts are going to be my thing this summer.  I have this one and I bought like 3 more, I don’t envision myself stopping.
