Can you believe it's already August!? As much as I love costumes, candy, and all things spooky. I am still enjoying Summer and am not ready to let it go. So when my Grandmother informed me the last hot days of Summer were upon us, I ran my booty to the beach swimsuit entail!
I like to buy a new swimsuit every summer and this is
Mixing and matching swimsuits is great for a number of reasons. For starters, it decreases the likelihood of someone else having the exact same swimsuit combo. Not that having the same swimsuit as someone is the end of the world, but we all like to feel unique once and awhile, am I right? Not to mention if you buy two matching swimsuits that you can mix and match with each other, BOOM you have 4 different swimsuit looks instead of just 2. Now that's just smart ladies.
But swimsuits aren't the only beach necessity this summer
So floaties and mix-matched swimsuits in hand lets enjoy the rest of our summer lovelies!
Some variation of this outfit has been my go-to look this summer. I am living for flowy waist-high pants, crop tops, high-heeled boots, a fabulous cabby hat and some cute sunnies! Another go-to of mine this summer has been the color pink, hence the pink wig and building. This is one of my favorite photo locations in Milwaukee. To my understanding, this building is simply another factory building just like the many that surround it. Though I find myself continuously fascinated by whomever's decision to paint it pink. Pink like its red relative has been known to make quite a statement.
I recall coming across a book filled with pink artwork in my college library. I found myself amused by Czech artist David Cerny's decision to paint a Soviet tank war memorial pink, stirring up controversy and getting thrown in prison for "Hooliganism". It fascinated me just how much of a statement a color can make and therefore how powerful pink is. I think this is one of the many reasons I am so entranced by this color. Even though I
What about you lovely? Are you entranced by pink and all of its stigma?!

Hello lovelies, did you miss me?! I took a blog break last week after pumping out 3 posts the week before. Infrasound was a blast but you always need time to recover after a festival. I also got a puppy last week! He's a 9 week old Australian Shepherd named Benson and boy is he a handful. Anywho let's talk some fashion!
I recently picked up this dress from my local H&M. This summer I realized the lack of everyday dresses I own. So I have been on a mission to add some to my collection. I love the frilly-ness of this dress and of course, the color. But like a lot of dresses, it's almost a little too girly for my taste. So I thought id edge it up and let you babes in on some of my dress styling secrets.
I didn't utilize this strategy on this particular day. But I thought I'd include it anyway. Rocking a thick wing or a black lip is a sure way to add some edge to any look. There's just something fun about looking like goth Barbie.
2. A Black Leather Jacket
I've found that no matter how girly I go my pleather jacket will take the look from " I am an innocent little flower" to "Don't f%$#* with me!" in an instant! The more zippers and studs and overall hardware your jacket has the stronger the results. Shout out to all the greasers, punks and bikers that made this jacket such a staple badass piece.
3. Combat Boots
This is quite similar to number 2. Since combat boots are another one of those "edgy" pieces. They are honestly key for me when it comes to making girly edgy, especially with dresses. Just imagine this dress with a different pair of shoes, some
In conclusion, it's all about mixing in some classic "edgy" pieces. Whether that be a classic black lip or leather jacket. As well as practical pieces like a pair of combat boots. These are just a few of my from girly to edgy tips and I hope you lovelies enjoyed hearing them. I'd love to hear some of yours! Tell me all about your girly to edgy styling tips in the comments.
The weather cleared up just in time for the final day of Infrasound and my favorite outfit of the weekend! Last year my boyfriend wore a head to toe gold look and we knew we had to rock head to toe couples looks this year. Why do you ask? Well because we like
Since I chose a king for Summerfest's #Dress4theFest I knew I had to crown myself a king and queen for Infrasound! So here they are.
This gorgeous woman came running up to me saying we needed a photo together because I was the gold to her silver. This babe is definitely the Infrasound Queen or shall I say Infrasound Khaleesi because her top gives off total Daenerys Targaryenvibes. Seriously can't get over her eye for detail and her beautiful personality! Twas a pleasure meeting you, you goddess!
As for the Infrasound king, the choice was obvious. Let's be real, this king crowned himself. Rocking a classic king crown that somehow managed to work perfectly with his red teddy bear shirt, he
I hope you lovelies have been enjoying my Infrasound posts! My Infrasound vlog and final installment in my Infrasound Music Festival series will be going up on my Youtube tomorrow night! Make sure to subscribe so you don't miss it.
Day 2 of Infrasound was a rainy one, but it wouldn't be infrasound without a little rain. Which is why I suggest packing for the rain when it comes to festivals. You don't want to miss out on the good times because you're hiding in your tent. My friends and I had planned out space goddess looks for day 2 since we would be seeing DJ Peekaboo, whose music includes a lot of alien references. The rain changed up all of our looks quite a bit, but we looked like festival babes nonetheless. Sadly we never got a group shot of our outfits. But I took a couple of my own and sprinkled in a shot of the girls so yall could get an idea of our rainy day looks.
Day 3 I ran around taking photos of other festival goers looks! Since fashion is one of my favorite parts of festivals. The style reminds me so much of my childhood days of playing
This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending my 2nd Infrasound! For those of you who aren't familiar, Infrasound is a Dubstep/Bass camping Festival that takes place in the Midwest, more specifically Highbridge, Wisconsin. It's a
Day 1 began our journey to Infrasound! We arrived in time to claim our same camp site
Now it should be no secret to you lovelies that
That's right lovelies I've hopped on board another trend, the gingham pant. I think this is the perfect summertime trend being that the pattern gives off total picnic table vibes, and whats the best season for a picnic?! Summer
So with Milwaukee photographers Nathanial Schmidt and Claire Laurel by my side. We set out in search of fashionable Summerfest goers. Unsure of what to expect on a rainy Sunday. I was stunned by the amount of for lack of a better word, fashionistas we found. It was wonderful seeing everyone style and connecting with people through fashion. I thought id go ahead share favorites with you lovelies, enjoy! Also, make sure to tell me your favorite in the comments.
We literally picked this guy out of a crowd of people who were gathered at picnic tables watching a band. Which really goes to show how eye-catching of a look this is. I absolutely adore his straw hat and the smile that grew across his face when I asked if we could photograph him for Summerfest warmed my heart.
How do you not make a statement wearing overalls and no shirt?
As a lover of
I’ve always been of a fan of the preppy look on tatted guys. It’s almost somehow edgier than wearing distressed denim, a band-t, and leather jacket. His shirt was also so fitting for the day with little umbrellas on it. They may have been beach umbrellas but they were umbrella nonetheless!
This babe killed it in her head to toe stripes look! I love the way she accessorized with hoop earrings and simple black
We spotted this woman
I had to save the best for last. Walking along red picnic tables we encountered this man. Dressed in head toe red sequin. It doesn't get any better than this folks! We unofficially donned this man the king of Summerfest.
In conclusion, this was a wonderful experience that I am so honored to have had. Huge thanks to everyone involved! <3
