You are the Coco to my Channel- Style Lately

When I saw this tee on Style Lately I knew it had to be mine.  I have been imagining all the possible outfits I'm going to style with it, like this one on my instagram.  I was excited to dress it up, but then for it's debut I ended up going with a more casual cool look.  Haha, well cool to me anyway.  Speaking of instagram, the new lip craze is Kylie Jenner's lip color that she has been sporting in all her selfies.  I've seen one of my fave make up gurus Nicole Guerriero do a post on it, below was the color I came up with to mimic the look.  It was pretty spot on in person, though in the photos it came off as a bit darker.  Back to the drawing board- or mixing board as it were.  Perhaps adding a lighter mauve?...  Whatdya think?

Red, White & Blue Weekend

We had an epic first Nashville 4th of July.  :)  My sister Ashley, and her fiancĂ© Carl came down for a visit, and we definitely dressed for the occasion!  The more you get into it, the more fun it is!  Take a peak.  Special thanks to our weekend visitors (Nick too) who made our 4th a blast!  And though we had a great time with events and activities, we still missed our fellow Wisconsinites!  Cheers!

White Hot American Summer

I have been loving white on white looks since spring.  All white ensembles really make your red, white, and blue accessories pop!  Lately though, I have been searching for a sheer white cut-out shirt like the one featured in this post.  The one below is from Express's 70% off sale last week.  I feel like I'm getting warmer, but still not exactly what I am looking for.  Thought I had it spot on with one I ordered from ASOS, but then it came in size petite and I could hardly fit it over my head.  All white ensembles really make your red, white, and blue accessories pop!  I am also obsessing over this nail polish right now.  OPI's Gwen Stefani Collection, Push and Shove looks like your nails have been dipped in pure silver.  I am totally obsessed!  It was gifted to me by my friend Jen, but I think I might have to buy some more because I have never found a silver with this kind of mirrored chrome finish before.  Also super excited that my sister and her fiancĂ© are coming to visit for Forth of July, here we come Hot Chicken Festival!!!
