Casual Friday

Casual Weekend WearTGIF. This week was one of those that felt realllly long but also seemed to fly by. When Friday roles around, I can’t wait to wear a more casual outfit to work (definitely not these ripped jeans, but at least jeans!), and on Saturdays and Sundays, I’ve been living in this pair. I actually wore this outfit two Saturdays in a row. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it – especially when you’re seeing different groups of people.

Growing up in Mequon, I was familiar with the boutique, but in all honesty, I knew it was where a lot of my friends’ moms frequently shopped, and I didn’t visit too often in high school and college. It was great to get back to the store and stock up on some transitional pieces.

I would say my generation (myself included) feels like we need to go downtown or to a big department store to stock up on quality basics and on-trend, seasonal items, but Faye’s has an incredible selection and range of products. They have new-to-me brands like John + Jenn (the sweater seen above), but they also have some of my tried-and-true favorites like Tory Burch. Plus, their stylists are really knowledgable and super helpful pulling items in the store.

As I’ve gotten older, I have started to invest in my wardrobe. While there are still items I don’t want to break the bank on, especially if they’re super trendy, I have started to build my collection of quality denim, coats and handbags. You can quickly notice the difference in materials, and they’re holding up much longer. When it comes to jeans, I need to try them on so I hopped over to the Mequon location (they also have a Brookfield location if you live west of the city).

I’ve said it before, but every time I buy a pair of ripped jeans, I can already hear my dad and husband staying, “You paid for ripped clothes…” I’m sure you know the line if you have a pair or two, but I love the style and feel a bit more effortlessly cool every time I wear them. Typically when I’m shopping for jeans, I need to plan to hem them at least a few inches (I’m 5’2″), but when I put this Frame pair on they fit perfectly. They were one of those pieces that you instantly felt good in, and I’m all for treating myself every once in awhile so this pair was worth the investment.

I opted to tuck in the black tee to highlight my waist a little more and elongate my legs. As for the sweater, I have been reaching for it every other morning (and I’m wearing it right now) so you know it’s a great purchase when you wear it that frequently. I can’t wait to pair it with a floral dress and these booties as the weather hopefully begins to warm up.

  • Thank you all so much for the love this weekend. We are definitely still navigating life at home with a newborn but our hearts couldn’t be more full. And watching Bill as a Dad has me like 😍 all day long. We’re so grateful for our guardian angels watching over us as we start this new chapter. Right after the delivery, there was a knock at the door, and while I couldn’t see who was dropping something off, I heard the nurses say “Thank you, Rosie”. How’s that for a sign that my mom was with us the whole time?
  • Ainsley Rose surprised us with an early arrival last night, and we couldn’t be more in love 💗
  • Celebrating three years of marriage today (just short of 10 years together) and under a month until we’re a family a three. I’m having a moment over here ❤️ grateful for you every day, @williamritt. 📷 by @juneandjae
  • While I may have strained my back moving things around the nursery this week, this corner still makes my heart happy. My mom found the dressers we’re using on Craigslist when I was in college, and we gave them a quick facelift with some new paint and knobs. I remember telling her how great they’d look in a nursery one day. And because she and her friends had quite the inside joke about penguins, naturally I needed these adorable prints that we’ll get around to hanging one day (thanks, Auntie Al @allisonhaslee).
  • Going to bed feeling extra grateful after today’s baby shower for our sweet girl. We have the most incredible family and friends who have been more supportive than we ever could have imagined these last few months. Can’t believe we get to meet her in under two months 💗 http://liketk.it/2wWi5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #tuckernucking #32weeks #ltkbump
