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.

  • This summer marked two years since my brother passed away, and we’re nearing a year since we lost my mom to cancer. I've been working on a post about how to help a grieving friend for a while now and finally hit publish tonight. Grief is messy, but I've been extremely fortunate to be surrounded by an incredible support system and wanted to share some of the things I've appreciated most (and let’s be honest, I’m probably forgetting something). I’m also feeling extra thankful for the best snuggles from our little angel baby. She came when we needed her most 💗
  • Missing my mom more than ever this week and so wishing she could’ve met Ainsley. She would’ve been the best Grandma. She may not have ‘liked people’ 😉 but she loved her family (okay and her friends) more than anything. So grateful to have our raw wedding video footage to relive moments like this (with her and Uncle Kev) and thanks for the commentary @juneandjae ❤️
  • I blinked, and you weren’t a newborn anymore. You still look just like your dad, and I’m trying to pass my love for stripes onto you already. We can’t thank @lqmke enough for sending us Ainsley’s first @macandmia box that I shared more about in my Stories (I want a pair of these pajamas in my size, please). I also included a link in my bio for $20 off your first box. Use the link and stylist code LINDSAYF to make sure you get the same stylist as our sweet girl 💗
  • I’m still living in comfy joggers and button down tops, but I’m heading out to dinner tonight and excited to pull out some of my favorite pieces from last year. I splurged on the Stuart Weitzman OTK boots as a pre-baby “to me, love me” gift but didn’t love the fit for my height (I’m 5’2”). I’ve tried three other flat, OTK options from Nordstrom but still haven’t found anything I like as much as this $40 pair from @target. I cut the ties in the back because they seemed really long, and you definitely have to tie them tight to hold them in place but for the price, you can’t go wrong! Swipe to see a close up 📷. I linked the boots and similar tops and skirts in the @liketoknow.it app to easily recreate the look. http://liketk.it/2y8UW #liketkit #LTKunder50 #targetmyway #everydaymadewell
  • I’ve said it before, but motherhood truly is the hardest, most rewarding and humbling job. It’s questioning yourself all day long, but ultimately knowing what’s best for your little one. It’s wanting 20 hands to do more but also just wanting your own two hands to hold her a little longer. It’s crying because of the scary firsts but then crying tears of joy when you see the first smile. It’s worrying something’s wrong in the middle of the night and looking at her only to find her sleeping peacefully, giving me a friendly reminder to “relax mom”. I’ve waited and watched her put herself to sleep only to start missing her the second she closes her eyes. I clipped her thumb the first time I tried to cut her nails. I’ve spilled my breast milk. I’ve had days where I’ve done too much and days that I didn’t leave my bedroom. My body leaks when I least expect it. My back hurts from leaning over the bassinet to comfort her. Last night, I felt the most tired I’ve ever felt in my entire life only to feel completely recharged when she curled her head into my chest after her first feeding this morning. I’m sad thinking how fast she has grown but so proud of her already at nearly seven weeks. Ainsley Rose, you’re our greatest gift. Thank you for making me a mom. #honestmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged
