Hey! So today’s post is just a really fun spring look. I stuck with blue for the coloring of the entire look, but played with different shades, textures, and patterns to keep it interesting. I added a few touches of black with the solid beanie and buckle booties. To top it off, I piled on a few geometric silver rings.

This could totally be a casual Easter look if your into that!

Have a great weekend!

XOXO,
Nat

Bloom
I’m back from my mini hiatus from posting. Don’t worry, I’m alive! I was on spring break and then one thing lead to another and the next thing you know I haven’t posted for a few weeks. I am trying to get back into a routine, so you can expect regular posts from now on!

On to the look…
Inspiration = spring
For me, nothing is more inspiring then the nature around us. As it starts to warm up, my outfits are getting more colorful and more full of patterns. My favorite thing to throw on for a laid back, or even a more formal look are loose harem style lounge pants. They are a perfect statement piece that you can pair with an otherwise monochrome look.

I have on a pair of floral lounge pants along with a casual oxblood cropped t-shirt. For accessories, I put on a bold necklace and a dainty cat midi ring. To top is off, I slipped on my go-to black Chelsea boots.

I’m totally in love with this comfy combo. With the addition of some heeled or platform sandals in place of the boots, you are set for a warmer climate!

XOXO,
Nat

UW Fashion Week Finale Fashion Show

A couple weekends ago I attended the 2014 UWFW (University of Wisconsin Fashion Week) finale runway show, put on by MODA (the student fashion) magazine. Wow, that’s a mouthful. The show was basically the grand finale to Madison Fashion Week. It featured the spring collections of local businesses along with some work from a few students. Some of the businesses included Lululemon, Francesca’s, and Twigs. One of my absolute favorite pieces from the show had to be this flowy, white, two piece ansamble showcased in the photos above.

Anyway, I just wanted to inform anyone who lives in the area about a great student magazine (MODA) that puts on some amazing events, which I didn’t know about until this year! The third annual fashion week included interesting events such as a blogger panel, a guest speaker, and an event highlighting the work of UW students. So if you are interested in fashion, be sure to check out MODA’s website for upcoming events/ articles. Also, if you want to flip through more photos from the runway show, be sure to click here.

Have a great weekend!

Where Are You Spring?
Many of you are probably wondering, “Is spring ever going to come?” Well, I can’t really answer that, but I can help you solve a fashion dilemma while we are all waiting. I know that I have problems with just throwing on some high-waisted jeans and a cropped sweater… everyday. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with that what so ever, but I think it can be fun to pull yourself out of that winter slump with some fresh outfit choices. Are you with me? So the outfit I posted today is still a super comfortable look, it’s just spiced up with a gray mid-lengthed jersey dress. I added a classic rosey pink cropped sweater, my staple leather jacket, and a few delicate necklaces. To top it off, I added a pair of black speckled socks and my go-to chunky boots.

I hope you gained a little inspiration while you are dying for spring to arrive!

XOXO,
Natalie

Hypnotize Me

I’m loving using patterns to jazz up repetitive winter silhouettes. You should definitely try it out. It literally puts a spring in your step, even though spring has yet to come. The featured H&M patterned pants were a bargain and an amazing staple item.

Somehow — Someway
Have you ever wondered how something has happened to you? Well I have been in a bit of a philosophical mood lately. I’ve really been focusing on the big picture of life, and when it comes down to it, I’ve been learning that I just need to take everything a little less seriously; take the pressure off. Ya know? Easier said than done, but I think everyone can relate. So this has somehow translated into more free flowing and boho looks. I love the maxi dress that is featured in this outfit because it is totally wearable in the summer but also in the winter, all you need is a few extra layers!

Let me know if you like this look by ‘hyping’ it on my lookbook page. I would really appreciate it! :)

XOXO,
Nat

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Velvet is a great way to be festive without being over-the-top on this kind of holiday. Perfect for a romantic dinner!

Do I Have To Go
I don’t really know what inspired this ‘in the thick of winter’ look. It was either this lovely gray turtleneck from Zara, or the fact that it is literally -25 degrees out. Either one! ;) I also experiment with more accessories than I usually do in this outfit. From the bracelet to the earrings to the metal hair tie. Anyway, I really like this look and it is super comfy.
