Midwest Skies and Sleepless Mondays

Ok, how's that for fate! I always blank when it comes to naming these posts, too much pressure! So I just end up naming it after whatever song I'm listening to at the time. Not too original, but I've never claimed to be creative at naming things! Anyways, I've been trying to mix up what I'm listening to so I've had my entire itunes library on shuffle and am finding all these classic songs that I haven't listened to in FOREVER. As I was uploading these photos "Midwest Skies and Sleepless Mondays" (old Augustana) came on and after a quick calculation to make sure that it was, in fact, Monday I had my post name! ... yes, little coincidences excite me alot!  

Cardigan: Jacob
Lace Vest: Tristan
Cami: H&M
Jeans: Winners
Shoes, Earrings, Bangles: Le Chateau

I'm still in love with these braids, I have yet to perfect them, but I just feel so girly having my hair all tied up. I also enjoy this vest. A lot. I'm having a tough time mixing it into my wardrobe though. I want to wear it with cute sun dresses but all the ones I have look odd with it, not the same feel or something. Maybe I'll take that as a sign that I should go shopping. :) 

The April showers have started here, which I couldn't be happier about! I enjoy the Sun, warmth and bare legs but I also hopelessly love rain. Not storms, but the pleasant, calm drizzle that makes everything look soft and makes it smell gorgeous. Mmmm. 

P.s. To answer a question: The Franco Sarto shoes I wore in the last post were bought at a local boutique, but they are this season and are probably on Zappos. I hope that helps! (they're also super comfy and look even better in real life!)


  1. Wow your braids look sooo great...I'm thinking that perfecting them is not an issue because imperfect braids are perfectly in! And yes I love that vest soooo much...everytime you wear it I think of how much I want one!!

  2. Aw, cute hair! The braids look great on you! & thanks for the shoe info!

  3. Such a cute outfit! The braids are adorable! I haven't quite figured out how to do them myself, but I am still trying lol.

    Since you actually like the rain, you can have some of the rain that is down where I am!
