Time is flying my friends! In just a couple weeks, I’ll be hanging out at my sister’s bachelorette party. And just a few weeks after that, we’ll be at her wedding! Wedding plans are definitely coming along – we are currently finalizing our invites, about to book our honeymoon and pick a DJ. Once I have all of this done, I’ll be sharing more wedding content on the blog. I think going through it all is good to share, but it’s even better to share once I’ve been through it!

Aside from that, my fiance and I have just been enjoying our weekends. This past weekend, the weather wasn’t ideal – but we still made it to brunch at the Red Stag Supperclub and enjoyed pizza at the new pizza place nearby – Station Pizzeria.

I also got to cuddle up in one of my new favorite tops from local boutique KOKOON! KOKOON is ethically made in the USA and has a great selection of tops, dresses, comfy clothes (like this thumbhole top – the Ripley Pullover) and more! I can’t wait to share a few more pieces from them in the future, but be sure to check out their spring lookbook!

Favorite Summer Statement Pieces – ON SALE!

- Fashion, Shopping

Hey fabulous friends! I hope you had an amazing weekend and a very Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mothers out there – including mothers to fur babies!

I had an amazing weekend spent with my family, who were in town on Friday and Saturday. The weather in Minneapolis was wonderful – hitting 80 with a sunny, cloudless sky. My sister and I got a pedicure with my mom for Mother’s Day, we ate lunch outside on the patio, then my sister and I enjoyed the nice weather that evening. The next day I spent the majority of my day in the salon updating all of my poorly colored roots to be blonde. So yes, I was there for close to 6 hours (I wish I was kidding). With the wedding coming soon, including my sister’s wedding, I wanted to be sure every inch of hair was accounted for! Anyway, I know we are already midweek, but I wanted to share some of my favorite closet statement pieces for spring and summer – which all happen to be from Chicwish and all happen to be on sale! Things from Chicwish sell out quickly – so if there is anything that catches your eye, I would recommend getting it now.

From a flamingo print skirt (with blue stripes) and a gorgeous white floral dress, here are some items to add to your closet now!

I mean seriously – HOW CUTE is this flamingo skirt? I’m definitely packing it for my bachelorette party to Miami, but will be sure to get plenty of use from it in the meantime!

Shaping Up: 3 Perfect Shapewear Pieces for Spring & Summer Dresses

- Shopping

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I received the included shapewear as compensation.

It’s that time of year – I’m pulling out all my favorite dresses, from tighter-fitting sheaths to long, flowy maxis for the spring and summer months ahead. The unfortunate part about some of these dresses is how they cling to your body – and no matter how in shape (or not) I am at the time – there just doesn’t seem to be a way around from dresses showing everything!

Luckily, there is a lovely thing out there called shapewear, and Kohl’s has a wide variety of shapewear options to ensure my spring and summer dresses stay smooth and looking good. Most importantly, they help your dress fabric from clinging to your body! Kohl’s has several brands and types of shapewear, to help ensure you’re looking your best, no matter what you’re wearing! That’s why I have three distinct and equally helpful shapewear pieces.
