Pink & Polka Dots

One thing that I love about Spring are all the wonderful colors, about a year ago I decided to do a color challenge which helped me to mix and match various colors therefor creating a brighter wardrobe. I was always one of those black brown and cream wearing girls, it was comfortable and chic. Now here I am a year later still playing with patterns prints and bold colors!

Spring for Florals

While it’s far from Spring over here I’m still starting to bring out the warmer clothes. I had originally paired this too with some mustard pants but it was almost too bright. Even after I typed that I checked myself, yes too bright! Ahh winter what have you done to me!!

Kendra’s Night Out Challenge

The other day I was invited to participate in a fun challenge for Kendra Thornton PR maeven and travel extroidanaire. Kendra is traveling to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando using Gogobot for her travel plans. She mentioned that for the many attractions she would be attending with her family that she wanted to be comfortable, yet glamorous. Using my wardrobe styling knowledge I would put Kendra into the Light Spring category, a lighter color palette of pale pinks, nudes, teals, creams and corals with a splash of color. After doing a basic Google search I did see that she has been photographed in the opposite, blacks, royal blues, and deep purples. The great thing about fashion is we can usually wear what we please, however when looking to be the best version of ourselves starting with the right colors will naturally give us that little pop! While Kendra looks great in all of the colors listed above I went with a lighter color palette with the occasional dark color tossed in here and there.

Kendra mentioned three specific activities that she will be attending. The Wildlife Express Train, Kilimanjaro Safari and a meet and greet with Goofy! How exciting! I also included a few more styles that she can add to her lookbook for other outings that she didn’t mention but I just assumed dinner and a night even would be included.

“We’re headed to Orlando to experience Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. There are a ton of rides, but I think my kids are most looking forward to the Wildlife Express Train. You can ride on a locomotive that goes through areas of Harambe, which is set in a scenario unique to Africa while also heading out to Rafiki’s Planet Watch. My kids love The Lion King, so I’m certain they’re going to love this ride.”

“I am actually looking forward to going on the Kilimanjaro Safari. This attraction actually seats you on an open-air safari vehicle that heads into the African outback. There are 34 different species of African wildlife at the park, which actually roam free in parts of the park. Last but not least, we’re definitely going to check out the Goofy & Pluto in DinoLand meet and greet. Kids get to dig around with their favorite Disney characters in hopes of finding treasures. I know my kids will love this because they love to cause a mess sometimes.”

My fashion inspiration for Kendra’s Dressy Dinner wear was from none other than the lovely Carly Cristman. I decided that Kendra would benefit most from a casual glamour dress code for this trip. When traveling with little ones it’s hard to get dolled up everyday so I decided that a good foundation of Kendra’s to pack list should be basics and from there glam it up with accessories.

April 1st

It’s April 1st and while there is still snow on the ground in good ol Wisconsin I can’t help but be hopeful for warmer days to come! I hope you guys have been enjoying this transition, I’m hoping it’s a home stretch for getting a few more wears out of those sweaters and boots! Move over winter, Spring has sprung!



Decided to have a little the riding world meets corporate. Decided to wear my black riding boots with a blazer and a long necklace yesterday.

Blazer: Younkers
Necklace: Wholesale somewhere
Pants: Vera Wang for Khols


I know I could have styled this a little better but trust me when I say I will be wearing this sweater again. When I was doing some fashion forecasting a few weeks back, I found that metallics are all the rage this Spring and quickly searched around for an affordable sweater that I liked. I do like trends because they open you up to more possibilities of something you might not have worn before but remember that trends are just that and don’t give in unless you really like it!

Sweater: Macy’s
Jeans: Rock & Republic
Shoes: Tory Burch

Beautiful Day!

It’s a beautiful day out! I am so happy that the sun is shining the birds are chirping and everything seems to be coming up roses. I’m leaving for Mexico tomorrow so this time my reason for not posting will be justified. I also decided to pursue a different venture so the stress of the studio is finally off my shoulders! It was great but I think I can do something even bigger and better, here’s to new challenges! 🙂

See you in a week!


Stripes & Cheetah

When it comes to patterns I’m already there. Although I’m a huge fan of basics I like to toss a good pattern in there every once in a while, and by now I’m sure you can tell that when I get on a fashion kick I tend to stay there. Once I wore cheetah for a whole week, I occasionally get addicted to leggings and when I stop working out 3 days translates into three weeks. Ugh time to get back on the bandwagon! Things at the studio are finally settling down but not so much where I can get a full 8 hours sleep at night. At least my closet comforts me. 🙂


I love a good grunge look, if I’m not meeting clients I’m usually rocking a lazy casual look. An oversized plaid shirt has become my go to this winter.
