Lovealwaysliv 's Thoughts:

Today I was invited to a family party at the yacht club in Milwaukee. I already went to Bradford beach earlier this morning to relax for a little bit and I almost forgot how beautiful the lake area is. It smelled like seaweed and it felt a little like home. (I am originally from the north sea in germany)
I am very easy to please and with a little morning sun, a light breeze, sounds of birds and the lake I was in heaven.

Besides that, it is friday (!!!) and it was just a gorgeous day in Milwaukee, which ended as good as it started.

Although this outfit looks quite simple, it took me a while to figure out what to wear for this event.

A white lacedress with a yellow neon belt, some nice wedges and nice jewelery. Done.

Oh wait, I don’t have a white lacedress and a yellow neon belt…

My total of dresses in my closet comes to two. One for the beach, one for a night out. I guess I could wear it to occasions like this one, but it is black and as I told you in one of my earlier posts, I don’t like wearing black in summer.

Summer is color, summer is fun, summer is happy = BRIGHT colors!
Ok, maybe some of you might think now, uuuhm… navy and white aren’t that bright. True. BUT white always makes me feel fresher and although it is not very bright it is clearly a color you’d wear more in summer than in winter.

Fortunately I got my coral wedges for the missing pop of bright color.

Since I don’t have a dress, I knew I wanted to wear my white skirt with my beige blazer. A top in another light color like white or beige would have made the outfit perfect but my tops in light colors wouldn’t match the skirts material very well so I had to improvise.

By saying that, I just noticed that somehow I spend my money very wrong. I know I bought alot, but how come that I don’t have alot of stuff that matches with clothes I alredy have? Seems like I need to change my strategy. URGENT.

Maybe I should try to go more often with a whole outfit in mind to the mall and get what I really want / need. It worked with my floral print outfit a few days ago surprisingly well.
