how is it going how there in cyber land? it has been an odd start to our summer here in northern ohio. during the last week of school i had the air on and was a hot mess outside. now? rain, clouds and under 70. odd. but i am not complaining…i am not a hot weather fan.
anyway…this summer is going to prove to be very exciting for our family. we have purchased a property close to the lake for a weekend/summer home with my parents! not sure about you…but i love seeing a home come togehter…hate the work. haha. although since we don’t have to live there maybe this won’t be as bad. don’t fret…you will see lots of photos and posts with before and after and projects…but for now…let’s dish on what i should wear to a lake party event…
what screams LAKE more than this mint and blue chevron dress? and how do you pass it up at only $39.99 (remember i like to purchase everything for under $50).
what fun is this dress? some different colors and different patterns…this would be unique at a lake party. and again…$39.99
what about a cooler day? one of my favorite color combinations is orange and navy. this dress ($45.95) screams me (except i don’t love to show my arms…but at least my legs are hidden haha!)
i think this would be a cute necklace ($32.99) with all the dresses. i tend to keep my accessories small and light when around sand.
Last weekend, we completed the first of our summer collection photo shoots. We had a blast! The talented Toni Geib from BellaFotos took some amazing shots and we thought we should share the fruits of our labor.
These photo includes the following pieces from the MiUS Collection:
These lovely dresses are part of our Emerging Designer Showcase! The navy dresses are custom ordered and proudly handmade by Tidal Cool Creations. The beautiful gray dress is designed and made in Los Angeles by Amadi.
These are my two favorites from the session. Stay tuned, we’ll post more sneak peeks throughout the week!

I took a little break from blog writing during our spring break vacay, but I am back refreshed and ready to share some style ideas with you 🙂 First, now that warmer weather is finally here, I thought some made in the USA options for the weekend would an appropriate blog piece. So I created this board with a breezy spring feel and a Saturday afternoon:

This is the second part to our “What to wear?” wedding series. That simple question that can send any woman into a tizzy, especially when it involves an outfit for an epic night of fun and mayhem: THE BACHELORETTE PARTY.

today my oldest turns six! i would need a novel to talk about the day of her birth…needless to say it was interesting. she is an amazingly smart and kind little girl. she makes me laugh every day and i love seeing how responsible she is becoming as she grows up. she also impresses me with how she takes a life threatening food allergy in stride. happy birthday baby #1!!
anyway…purple is her favorite color so i am concentrating on some purple items in stock at …all made here in the good old USA!

can you believe st. patrick’s day is already this weekend? what do you have planned? our kiddos get to go to their (non-irish) grandparents the night before so the husband and i are heading out for dinner and cocktails…or maybe just a movie and pizza at home…what to do when your kids aren’t home?!
i am not irish. but my children are. despite the italian last name….my husband is almost all irish. so on st. patrick’s day, i, like everyone else all over the world, am irish. so i guess it’s time to put on some green no? i am linking up with lindsey from the pleated poppy for what i (should) wear wednesday.
i didn’t quite stay in my $50 price range this week…but how could i when a green bag is in the mix?

i am back with wiSww. it’s freezing here again. while i love winter…and i actually prefer cold over hot…i am ready for the “dirty” part of this season to be over. specifically the salt on my car and the dirt on my shoes. ha ha..i am so anal.
anyway…i will say that i know everyone is getting ready for spring…and i know target already has out bathing suits (seriously?!?!) but i am going to post an outfit today that i would wear TODAY…a day that is chilly with a chance of snow. yay! i like snow…i just don’t like what happens when it melts…
since i am still freezing…i would start with the basic black cardi ($24.99)
and since it is march and we are all starting to want to see a little more color, i would pop this tank ($29.99) under it to brighten it up some but still be warm with the cardi…
and i am loving the new boyfriend jeans ($45.99)…so even though they might catch a breeze or two…they look comfy so i would have to toss them on (oooooh…maybe a cute pair of coral or black tights under the jeans for extra warmth?? i might now be showing my own sense of (non) style….
if its really cold…i can toss on my black snood ($32.99) and i am ready to roll!
on a side note…though i might wear it with this outfit because i love it so much and wear it all the time…i got this bracelet at the last trunk show! love to wear it with my rose gold watch or my white watch.
all items (except the bracelet) can be found in our fab finds under $50 boutique and as always…all items are made in the isa!
linking up with lindsey at the pleated poppy for her wiww posts!
happy hump day!
