In A Blink of an Eye

January 23rd 2012 a single girl arrived in Uptown Minnesota.  I drove here with my dad not knowing anyone but ready to take on a new challenge.   My challenge was a new job and to take on the world of television but 9 months in my new world changed.  My sister went behind my back and started an online profile for me.  I thought, why not?  I was in a new place, why not meet some new people? I went on a couple miserable dates and decided this sucks, I’m done!  Before I got off I let me take one last look and decided to set up a date with a guy that looked cute and seemed interesting! That guy is now my husband.  Our first date was 5 hours long and we covered everything.  I was my typical self letting him know not to get attached because I don’t commit… well I was wrong!

Where it all started with my little nugget!

Fast forward, this August we celebrated 5 years of dating with our daughter at the place where it all started!  I’m so lucky to have found my forever and this crazy thing called life is so much more fun with these 2 by my side.  One of the many things I love about my husband is that he is the romantic one.  The one that remembers the dates of all the mile stones and he loves to celebrate them no matter how small.  After we had our daughter he made it very clear that he was still so excited to keep dating me.

Best of April Shoe Report!

In honor of May 1st this Shoe Report is looking back at my favorite outfits in April!!  Tell me which outfit was your favorite?

Monday, April 6th:

MONDAY OUTFIT

Shoes: I love these blue shoes.  They’re a great way to add a pop of color with out going over the top.  Also, if you have blue accents in any of your clothes these will bring them out for sure.  I got these beautiful blue shoes at Opitz Outlet, this is the place to go and my favorite part is their clearance section.

Outfit: I’m calling the outfit 50 Shades of blue! Between the blue jeans, blue shirt and blue shoes.  The jeans are my Express ones that I got from Arc’s Value Village.  Let me tell you, if you don’t have a ton of time heading there with a personal stylist appointment is the way to shop!  You don’t spend too much money and you save time; that’s a win win!  The shirt, I believe, is from Nordstrom… it was a gift from my mother-in-law.  I added orange earring that I got from Target just so it was so blue.

TUESDAY OUTFIT

Shoes: These classic pumps are just beautiful, I always get so many compliments when I wear them.  These are from my favorite place to buy shoes justfab.com.

Outfit: Okay, since outside isn’t screaming spring I thought I could scream spring with my outfit.  The dress is from Lularoe and it is so fun and comfortable.  I love that this dress has so much character that you don’t need to add too much more.  Of course, I want to take it to the next level. The scarf and tights are from Target along with the leopard print belt.  Since I’ve challenged myself to mix prints I’m loving it!

Thanks for visiting and have a happy shoe day! And don’t forget to pay it forward!

Outfit: Have I mentioned I’m loving the neon trend right now!  The extremely comfortable, perfect for Spring, sweater I just got a Primp in Excelsior.  I got a ton of compliments and was so easy to style.  The tank top is from Target of course and the jeans are the ones I wear every Monday!  I got them Arc’s Value Village with the personal stylist Michelle.

Shoe Report: 4/6/15 – 4/10/15

FRIDAY OUTFIT

Shoes: It’s all about being pretty in pink!  These shoes are so extremely comfortable and I love the pop of color they bring to the outfit.   I bought these at DSW.

Outfit: All about pink today!  The long sweater is from Target and is a perfect spring sweater.  I love that its not too warm but keeps you warm enough.  The white t-shirt underneath is a longer t-shirt that I got from Wet Seal; with longer sweaters I like to put long t’s with them so it doesn’t cut me off.  Lastly, the pants are my pixie pants from old navy!

Also, I added a scarf after I took the picture (a hand me down from my mother-in-law) and added a pink jacket to brighten this gloomy day!!

Best of March 2015

March has gone by so quickly this year!  It was a month of crazy weather.  In the beginning we we’re up to the 70’s and then we had a snow storm and temps in the 40’s. Let’s take a look back at some of my favorite outfits from March?  Do you agree or is there an outfit I missing on the list? Can’t wait to hear from you!

Tuesday, March 10th: 

Tuesday Shoe

Shoes: The simple yet sassy black pumps are from Aldo and a birthday present from a dear friend.  I love that these are classic black but with beautiful detail with the angled front.

Tuesday Outfit

Outfit: This was such a fun outfit for me. These high-waist wide leg pants are from a boutique in Minneapolis that has sadly closed.  I don’t wear these much but when I do they add such a statement to the outfit.  The green blouse and blazer is from another local boutique here in Minnesota, Primp.

Shoes: HELLO LOVER!! Spring is coming (I mean, it is coming isn’t it?!) and I’ll have to put the boots away soon!  I had to get one more sassy outfit in with these over the knee gray boots that are justfab.com.

WEDNESDAY OUTFIT

Outfit:  This outfit screams fall but I thought its still sassy and I went with it!  The pants are from MODE is Roseville and the sweater I found when cleaning my room (yes, my closet is a room).  I got it last fall at Target.

Thursday, March 19th

THURSDAY SHOES

Shoes: These are more than just shoes they are weapons!!  I got these years ago and I honestly don’t remember where.  I can’t wear them too often because when I walk too fast I kick myself and end up bleeding.  What ladies do for fashion! I do love these though, so spunky!

THURSDAY OUTFIT

Outfit: For this outfit what I did was folded my cardigan (that I got from Target) over the dress (that I got from Primp). Then added the belt so it looked like this is out the outfit was suppose to go.  I got this idea from Primp last summer and I just love it! The belt and leggings are also from Target.

Wednesday, March 25th 

Wednesday's Shoes

Shoes: NEW SHOES ALERT!!! I’ve been waiting to find a pair of beautiful floral pumps.  I love the the background color is black with bright floral color.  I just got these in the mail from justfab.com.

WEDNESDAY OUTFIT

Outfit: This was a fun outfit for me to put together. I’m ready for nice weather so I decided to go with a bold color tight that I got from Target.  The dress is also from Target and is extremely comfortable.  I always love putting a dress on because putting the outfit together is so quick and easy.

Thursday, March 26th

THURSDAY SHOES

Shoes: I have a confession… The heels of these shoes are starting to fade a little so as a embarrassed mom I’m just showing you the pretty part.  With my neon themed outfit I just had to wear these.  I got them from a outlet store than is no longer in business.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes!

THURSDAY OUTFITOutfit: All about the neon! I love my LulaRoe skirt and with the neon yellow detail I had to pair it with other neon clothes. The tank is from Target and the blazer is from Primp!  If you want to have a LulaRoe party send me a message for more information.

I hope I’ve inspired you with this walk down memory lane!  Don’t miss a post… be sure to follow Happy Shoe Day!! and as always have a Happy Shoe Day!

Shoe Report: 3/9/15 – 3/13/15

There’s a heat wave here in Minnesota! In honor of the sun shinning and the snow melting this week I added a pop of color in each outfit.  Check it out…

Monday, March 9th:

Monday ShoesShoes: Clearly, the pop of color wasn’t in the shoes for this outfit.  These are from Charlotte Russe many year ago and they’re the only brown shoes I own and I’ve never felt like I needed to own another pair.

Mondays Outfit

Outfit: Can you see that blob of orange? That’s a very comfy sweater from Old Navy and such a fun color.  The jeans are from justfab.com. I had a case of the Mondays for this outfit, I kept it very simple.

Tuesday, March 10th: 

Tuesday Shoe

Shoes: The simple yet sassy black pumps are from Aldo and a birthday present from a dear friend.  I love that these are classic black but with beautiful detail with the angled front.

Tuesday Outfit

Outfit: This was such a fun outfit for me.  I left like I needed to get back my fashion blogger “cred” after Monday’s outfit. These high-waist wide leg pants are from a boutique in Minneapolis that has sadly closed.  I don’t wear these much but when I do they add such a statement to the outfit.  The green blouse and blazer is from another local boutique here in Minnesota, Primp.

Wednesday, March 11th: 

Wednesday Shoes

Shoes: DEAL ALERT: I got these beautiful blue shoes in the clearance section of Optiz Outlet for only $5.  These are so comfortable and adds a fun pop of color to an outfit.

Wednesday Outfit

Outfit: I decided to mix prints with this outfit.  It’s a personal challenge to start mixing prints at least once a week and this is that outfit. I love this dress… it’s a LulaRoe!  What I love about LulaRoe is that you can have parties but instead of a long speech in the beginning its simply a pop-up shop.  You go shopping and bring home what you want that night.  If you want to have a party contact Kate Castleberry at lularoeminnesota@gmail.com.  I’m having a party at the end of March and can’t wait to show you what I buy!  And last the belt is from Target.

I rocked this outfit on Twin Cities Live for our Producer Pick: Fish Edition… check it out!

Thursday, March 12th:

Thursday Shoes

Shoes: Hot pink… I love to use these as a pop of color instead of the classic red, especially in the spring.  I got these beauties from justfab.com!  

Thursday outfit

Outfit: Such a comfortable outfit!! I totally dressed it up with the shoes and kept the colors simple so those hot pink shoes could pop!  The jeans are my go-to Silver jeans that I love! The tank top is from Target (of course). And now for the most comfortable blazer ever! I got this at MODE in Roseville (Minnesota).  I love this boutique because it has such amazing clothes and jeans for very reasonable prices.

Friday, March 13th:

thursday shoes

Shoes: It’s not warm enough yet to get rid of the booties!  These purple Madden Girl are from Arc Value Village… such a great find!  I love Arc’s Value Village because you get amazing clothes and you can even make an appointment with their personal shopper! Check out their website here.

Friday Outfit

Outfit: Simple yet sassy outfit for Friday!  The over sized white T is from H&M, I love that the color is bedazzled! The coated denim jeans are from MODE in Roseville.  These are extremely comfortable and totally dress up a look.
