Weekend Wear

Welcome back from the long weekend! How was it for everybody? Ryan only was off work yesterday for the holiday, so we took advantage by making yet another trip to Menard’s (if you follow me on Snapchat @msinthemidwest, you probably saw/heard my excitement), making major progress on home projects, and enjoyed an annual neighborhood fish boil at a neighbor’s house. It was a hot and humid weekend, the perfect way to send off summer!

Although I dress casually on a daily basis, there’s something extra special about dressing for the weekend – there seems to be less fuss and worry about putting together an outfit, and there’s just a general ease about it being the weekend. Does anybody else feel this way? As always, I like to keep things casual but polished and refined – my favorite way to do so is to layer a blazer or lightweight jacket over a tank and complete the look with a pair of tailored shorts or jeans. Since we are now entering the stage of in-between weather where it will be warm one day and cool the next, I know I can rely on this type of outfit to carry me through the next few weeks.

blazer & white tank: Tommy Hilfiger Factory Outlet (similar tank) | shorts: Banana Republic | sandals: Target (on clearance!) | silver hoop earrings: Kohl’s (similar)
Shop the look:
!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s); e.id  = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

Do you ever experience quiet moments of total content while on vacation, no matter where you are?
  • Catalina Island is nothing short of enchanting. ☀️ #catalinacasino #vacationmode #frommyview
  • California vacation part one: ☑️. Thanks for the magic, memories and OG nostalgia Disneyland! #adultsatdisney #toontown #wallsofdisney
  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
