Casual Friday

TGIF. 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…

Gingham and Stripe Top

This J.Crew gingham and stripe top combines two of my favorite prints so the first time I saw it online, I instantly added it to my cart. I can’t wait to wear it with white denim, a floral skirt or jean shorts this summer.

Plaid Scarf and a Striped Tee

You’re Invited: Madewell Holiday Shopping Event

I’ve been sharing some updates on Instagram about an upcoming event I’m hosting at Madewell in Madison this weekend.

  • This sweet little handprint ornament made me go 😍 every time I passed it on our tree this year. We went to @glazepottery in Thiensville to make it, and I may have already told Bill what I want for Mother’s Day since I definitely teared up when I saw it there (motherhood is emotional haha) - a mug with two handprints with the saying “These hands hold my heart” in the middle. Wink, wink, nod, nod @williamritt just in case you forgot.
  • This video clip from our first dance has been in my Instagram ‘Drafts’ since our anniversary in September (better late than never?). This January marks 10 years together and these last few months have been some of the most incredible yet. Watching you become a dad makes me so grateful that Ainsley and I are both yours ❤️ love you, @williamritt! And we’re forever grateful for @russelled and @kaileydickerson’s incredible surprise.
  • We’re keeping things festive over here for the next week 🎄 This is the tree that my mom would put up in my room as a little girl. It was pretty special to put Ainsley’s first ornaments on it this year.
  • Merry Christmas ❤️ The Ritts
  • I love how you can see the cardinal ornament so well in this photo. A cardinal is one of our signs from our mom (along with Ainsley flicking us off 🖕🏼😂). And little Kevy’s angel ornament is also right at the top. My mom loved ornaments (she got one every time we traveled) and traditional Christmas decorations so this setup along with all of our family photos makes my heart pretty full ❤️
