Buy now or cry later…recent finds;)

Hello lovelies! Summer may be upon us, but we Midwestern babes never know what to expect with this random weather. A stylish “in between seasons” coat is a necessity, and I am here to present y’all my pick.  Retro varsity style jackets are majorly back in action, and I am totally into it. This style is so quintessential American, and the styling options are endless.  When my heavy metal loving husband first saw me in this jacket, he wanted to scoop me up and take me to a roller rink. Sold.

Jacket by Topshop, tank by Forever 21, Bebe jeans, Stuart Weitzman wedges, Tom Ford shades, Chanel bag.

Moving onto recent find numero 2, culottes.  I never would think culottes would be my jam, but they are actually quite genius.  If you find a style that flatters your body, you can effortlessly, (and super comfortably), dress them up or down.  Any pant I can wear with a crop top and heels, that feel like pajamas, are a great friend of mine!  And never be shy about rocking a hat.  The main men in my life; my husband, my dad, and my father in law, always applaud me when I rock a hat. Nothing completes a stylish gals outfit better than the perfect lid, and they can be found at bargain prices…if it looks great I recommend going for it!  My husband treated me to a Janessa Leone hat shopping on vacation a while back, and when you go Janessa y’all, it’s hard to go back. Like, impossible. For you hat virgins nervous to take the leap… go Janessa, and thank me later;)

Here I am church Sunday ready in my culottes paired with my favorite retro blouse, from the best vintage shop ever, Trash Can Annie Vintage in my home sweet hometown, Moline, Illinois.  And if you happen to be a new reader and don’t recognize the beauty next to me, she’s my amazing mom:)
