Wardrobe Wednesday | Green With Spring Envy

The other day I had a meeting with SCORE for Those Four Words and of course had to have an appropriate outfit for the occasion. First of all let me tell you a little bit about this non-profit organization. This company was created by a group of retired executives in Minneapolis that got together to provide mentorship for small businesses and their start-up process. Minnesota served as the first chapter for this company and they now have over 300 chapters worldwide! I definitely believe that this is one of the best kept secrets for any small business owner. As Co-Owner and Proposal Planner for Those Four Words, myself and my business partner have been prepping for this meeting for almost a year after attending one of their free workshops. 

Now back to Wardrobe Wednesday...


This is the actual outfit that I wore for the meeting but decided to switch it up a little and add my green heels (which you will see below) for the sake of this post. In all actuality I would have loved to have worn the green heels to the meeting but let's face it I live in MN where the weather doesn't always harmonize with my fashion choices. 

Boots | Madden Girl from DSW

Jeans | Mudd from Kohls


Shirt | H&M

Faux Pearls | Salvation Army



Blazer | Elle from Kohls


Heels | Bettie Page


Earings | Chanel




I finally got the chance to bust out this Coco Chanel inspired blazer and I had the perfect vintage Chanel earings to add to this outfits ambiance. The mint green color made up for the lack of spring we're experiencing in my neck of the woods. 

What are some of your fave fashion choices you have made so far this spring?!

Wardrobe Wednesday| Coats of Winter's Past

Happy first day of SPRING!! 
Spring has sprung in my heart but here in the Twin Cities we're experiencing single digit temperatures and with those kind of conditions I'm forced to keep on rocking my winter coats. I'm desperately hoping that it won't be for much longer but it has inspired this week's Wardrobe Wednesday. So take a look at some of my favorite winter coats that I have collected over the past at bargain prices!! 

The coat below has been my go-to coat this winter because it is so cozy yet stylish and I get a lot of compliments when I'm out and about. I also kind of feel like an international spy in it when I flip the collar up and rock some retro sunglasses ;)






Another FAVE! I absolutely ADORE this coat and I don't really think I need to explain why, this Sass-tastic coat speaks for itself.









Wet Seal | $10

I love the cape style of this coat it makes me feel like I go back in time when I don this beauty. 







What one is your fave? I really can't decide!!

Check out a couple of the behind the scenes shots over at LadyLove Photography

Stay warm and cozy Love-lies!!

Manic Monday| BabyLove

A couple Saturday's ago I attended the baby shower for my niece to be and by the looks of things she is going to be one spoiled little girl!! Check out this cake!! So much creativity and attention to detail I had to share!! Now I'm contemplating if I'm in the wrong business...SYKE!! I also had to post my latest Pinterest endeavor. So scroll on down!!






Aren't these just the cutest?!? I have an infatuation with cupcakes so I felt it only appropriate to recreate this Pinterest find!! All you do is roll up little baby socks into a onesie and stick it in a cupcake wrapper.What do you think?!

Few of My Favorite Things Friday | Miracles Happen


Mary Kay Ash, the founder of Mary Kay Inc., is such an inspiration! Not only do I look up to this Lady for what she created but the obstacles she had to overcome in order to gain her successes, her business model isn't too shabby either!! I cant remember how I came across this book but I'm glad I did. Whether you are a business owner, entrepreneur, or just a Lady looking for some inspiration this book is a great read filled with encouraging tidbits of how to get through this journey we call life!! This one definitely gets the LadyLove stamp of approval!!

QuoteQueen | Audrey Hepburn



"There is MORE to sex appeal than just measurements. I don't need a bedroom to prove my 

womanliness. I CAN convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or 

standing in the rain."
