  Spring, spring, spring

Spring has always been my favorite season. It’s all of the best things, the first warm day after a brutal winter, flowers and green grass coming back and my birthday! Well, and, the excuse to wear anything and everything floral and bright colored. Here’s my top 5 sunnies about this season:

1.       I had so much fun planning and partaking at our re-model grand opening in Brookfield! It’s always so interesting for me to work in both stores because they really have their own, different personalities and we were able to represent that through the re-model process. A big thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated with us! I don’t know about you, but between Beyoncé playing over the speakers, Brennan’s wine and Bake Street Café food the entire energy of the night was magical.  

2.       My boyfriend surprised me with tickets to Denver for an early birthday present! We drove through Mt. Evans, dipped our toes in natural hot springs and drank all the craft beer we could.

3.       I turned the big 2-5 on the 14th! My actual birthday weekend was filled with all my favorite people. I spent part of the weekend in Chicago with my friends from high school and college going out and to a Cubs game. And the rest of the weekend with my family at home. Such a full heart.

4.       Easter is such a fashion holiday for me. Sometimes even more so than Christmas. Can you tell I am just smitten with spring? Luckily, I had my outfit ready to go this year. Last year I didn’t and ended up in one of my mom’s old dress from the 80s…I looked like a pastel flight attendant Easter egg with buttons.  Of course, the dog has to be dressed to impress to…linen bowtie and all.

5.       Finally got to try Tofte’s table in downtown Waukesha. I live a couple blocks from the downtown and I’m always looking for new food to devour! Let me tell you, it did not disappoint! I highly recommend it. I want to go back just to try all their desserts, but it was all amazing.

We have sooo many new clothes in, and coming in every single day, that it’s safe to say spring has SPRUNG.

What’s your favorite season??

PS- if your favorite season is summer you’re gonna love the window display I’m working up for our summer story! Stay tuned…

  Loving my MCM

I have to tell you how much I love my MCM Anya Zipper Tote. Not only is it practical for everday use running around town but perfect when traveling. This stylish bag has room for my wrap, swell bottle and flip flops. The best part is the small satchel purse that it comes with, so when you arrive at your destination you can throw your phone, ID and credit cards in and go. Two for one, I love it.

  It's wedding season!

Wedding season has officially started, and I should know because mine is in 23 short days! As the date draws closer, questions about what to wear start arising. 

"Should I wear a long, or short dress?"

"How formal does my dress have to be?"

"Does my husband have to wear a jacket with his suit?" 

"Should I wear a tuxedo?"

Countless of questions coming my way all day, every day. I thought that indicating "Black Tie Optional" on our invitations and wedding website would do the trick, but it seems that not everyone knows what that means. For those of you on the same boat as my friends and family, I got your back! Here's a quick guide to wedding dress codes to help you turn heads at your upcoming weddings:

Casual dress means wedding guests can wear pretty much anything they want. I recommend a summer dress for the ladies and dress pants with button-down shirt or polo shirt for the guys.

Cocktail Attire, Semi-Formal or Dressy Casual
All three of these phrases are asking guests to dress somewhere between formal and casual. We recommend a cocktail dress for the ladies and a suit and tie or a sport coat for the gents.

Beach Formal
Beach inherently indicates casual, which is why formal is tacked on to the end — it’s still a classy affair. I recommend a formal summer sundress (tea-length or knee-length) with flats for the ladies and a summer suit with linen shirt, linen pants or khakis for the guys.

Formal Attire or Black Tie Optional
These two phrases are very common in today’s weddings. They indicate that the wedding party will be in formal wedding attire, and it’s optional for all guests. We recommend a dark suit or tux for the men and formal evening wear (floor length dresses or evening pant suits) for the women.

Black Tie
Black Tie usually indicates an evening affair where the men where tuxedos and the women wear formal gowns of any length.

White Tie
This is the most formal of all wedding dress codes. We’re talking soirees at the Whitehouse kind of evenings. The gentlemen dress in long-tail tuxedos and the women don full-length ball gowns. 

So, now that you have a better idea of what you're expected to wear, the big question is, where will I find the perfect dress? I got your back (again).... FAYE's! ;)
