Valentine’s Day Little White Dress

Valentine's Day White and Pink OutfitIf you follow me on Instagram, you may know that one of my favorite places in Third Ward is The Kimpton Journeyman Hotel (as seen here, here, here and here). Not only is it a beautiful hotel, but Tre Rivali was a welcome addition to the restaurant scene in Milwaukee, and the Outsider has the most incredible rooftop bar with great views of the city.

I was so excited to hear about their floral pop-up shop with Milwaukee’s Belle Fiori, and I had the chance to visit on Saturday. Their offerings ranged from classic red roses to fragrant, fun bouquets. I took the opportunity to get dressed up in what would be a perfect look for tomorrow if you’re going out with a significant other or your girlfriends. To be honest, Bill and I keep it pretty casual, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to put together a white and pink look this year.

Endless Rose Dress (I love the top as well) / Sam Edelman Pumps (they’re so comfortable) / BaubleBar Earrings / Rebecca Minkoff Bag (old, love this light pink version)

If you missed the pop-up this weekend, you’re in luck because tomorrow, Tuesday, February 14 from 12 p.m.-6p.m., they’re hosting the pop-up again! You can stop by the lobby to purchase a variety of different arrangements, and guests even have the option to order flowers to enjoy in their rooms.

And, if you’re looking for a last minute place to grab a drink, stop by the Outsider and try their Pillow Talk cocktail that they crafted for Valentine’s Day. If you’re not able to make it this week but still want to visit soon, I highly recommend starting with a C.L.C and Creamy Balsamic Onion Dip. If you’re with a larger group, my friends and I also love to split the Crispy Pork Belly pizza.

  • Three years without our Kev. Remembering him today and every day 💙
  • So happy to be reunited with my people after traveling for work all week ❤️
  • I feel like a bit of a broken record these days but healing takes time and healing a broken heart while trying to keep it together for your family is hard. My mom was my best friend, and while I like to think I knew how good I had it while she was alive, there are just so many more things I’d want to thank her for, especially with my new lens as a mom to Ainsley. I can’t imagine going through chemo and still trying to take care of her grown kids the way she did. I can’t imagine getting the call that no parent ever wants to receive finding out your son passed away, and then going on to keep fighting cancer for another year and a half. All while still making me breakfast on the weekend and running errands for me during the week, helping me plan our wedding (literally don’t know what I would’ve done without her and my sister), taking every phone call from me as I was navigating new jobs, visiting house after house as Bill and I tried to find our first home and so, so much more that will never fit into an Instagram caption. I see so much of my mom’s determination and stubbornness in Ainsley, and I can’t wait to see more of her as she continues to grow up. I am forever grateful to be her mom — it’s the best ‘title’ I’ll ever have. And while, I’m grateful to have had my mom for as long as I did, it still feels way too short. Today was filled with lots of giggles and snuggles but also lots of tears as I celebrate my first Mother’s Day with Ainsley and my second without my mom. I’m trying to be better about letting myself have the bad days and giving myself more grace. So I’m calling it a night and watching Bad Moms while eating ice cream in bed. Sending lots of love if you’re having a hard day and a virtual cheers with my pint of ice cream ❤️

  • When you’re on duty to supervise the sleeping baby, but you’re also on vacation so you have a margarita with lunch. I’ve been living in this jumpsuit all week. I bought it in two colors, and it’s been great to wear to the pool but also for play time with Ainsley. Plus, it came in petite and has pockets 🙌🏼 http://liketk.it/2Bftk #liketkit @liketoknow.it
