Girl In The Band - Small Business Sunday

Friends. 

I look like a rockstar. Everything about these photos are amazing. Alyssa Lentz is a magician. I actually feel like I could be the lead singer in a band because of this outfit from ZuLou. It was so bomb. But let's be real. I'm totally more of a groupie.

Centered Gravity - Small Business Sunday

Hooray! It's another Small Business Sunday friends!

This week I am featuring an amazing sweater and necklace from a local boutique Wild Ginger. Green Bay is a pretty small place, and to be honest it's not all that exciting... But stepping into this boutique will transport you to far away lands. The entire boutique is decked out with gorgeous Asian Pacific pieces of furniture and household accessories.

It feels almost like you stepped into an amazing outdoor (but indoor) market. Gorgeous leather and beaded necklaces hang from branches, little dishes are filled with gorgeous gem stone earrings, and all the different textiles in the shop are absolutely scrumptious.

When the lady who was helping me pick out pieces to feature on the blog I was initially a bit skeptical of this sweater... But as soon as I tried it on I immediately changed my mind. *cue song Sweater Weather*

Seer-Suckered You Into It

Hello there friends!

These shorts have been in my closet since the wonderful Lilly Pulitzer sale last summer. I have only been able to wear them a handful of times because winter lasts 8 months months of the year in Wisconsin, but I am so incredibly obsessed.

I've been watching the Lilly Pulitzer site like a hawk for you guys so I can clue you into their annual After Party Summer Sale, and GUESS WHAT! IT'S ALMOST HERE! August 22-23 is their huge sale, for more info click here. This message isn't sponsored in anyway, I just can't let you guys miss out on the sale of the season!

I have to show off my adorable cross body bag from Stella & Dot! My sister sells the accessories, and the moment I saw this on the website I ordered it right away. It's been a lifesaver for my back because I would always overstuff my other purses. It fits my phone, plus some cash, ID, and some credit cards perfectly. I don't have to worry about waking up with a sore back anymore! Haha!

I'm Running For President - Small Business Sunday

Okay friends. 
I'm throwing my hat in the ring.
The choices this election are looking bleak so I thought I would give it a shot. In all reality however, I cannot run until 2032 because I won't be over 35 until then. Stupid constitutional rules... JK I LOVE THE CONSTITUTION.

Recently I had the chance to team up with two amazing small businesses in Green Bay. Zulou & Wild Ginger. I asked if I could feature some of their clothing on my blog and they both agreed! Hooray! The outfit I'm wearing today features this amazing blazer from Zulou, it's an adorable British brand that I cannot remember the name of. I think a blazer is a great way to transition into fall. They're lightweight enough that you can layer them and not get too hot, you can toss them over your arm if it's scorching out, and perfect if you're inside and the A/C is too high.

Around The World In 80 Dresses - San Diego

Hey there friends!

It has been so long since I've posted in this series and I'm very excited to finally write in it again. I realized that my dresses don't need to always be international, and I certainly have purchased plenty of dresses since being abroad.

These photos were from before I chopped my hair off, and a lot of the upcoming posts will feature my "old" hair... (Just a heads up.) I had my eye on a dress similar to this at Anthropologie, but couldn't justify dropping $150+ on a dress. While I was in San Diego back in January I stopped in one of my favorite boutiques, Eden

My New Lob

Hey friends!

Hooray for finally posting again! I promise I have a bunch of really exciting things in store for you. I find it funny that I always imagine summer being a time that I'll be able to fully focus on my blog. But that never seems to be the case. This summer I had two internships, took 7 college credits, and had a job, plus wedding planning which is like a full-time job itself.

It's a miracle that I even had time to sneak in for a haircut!
As usual, Naomi took great care of me!

She cut off about 5-6 inches, and made me blonde again. It's been a struggle. I went so dark this past winter that going blonde was way tougher than I imagined. This was the second time I went in to bleach my hair since getting home from school.

DIY Paper Peonies - Wedding DIY

Hello friends!

paper flowers, pennies, peony, DIY, tutorials, tutorial. wedding, marriage, sequinedlife, crepe paper flowers, bottles, DIY wedding, garland,

Today I'm going to teach you how to make paper peonies just like the ones featured on the cake table in the image above! (Those are mine! Hooray!) Just a heads up, this is one of my first every DIY's, so bear with me. I'm much better at teaching in person than I am at writing out all of these steps. Also, the photos were taken with my iPhone, because holding a heavy DSLR Nikon with one hand and trying to take photos of your other hand is a difficult feat. 

Here's what you're going to need for your paper peonies.
