This week is supposed to be pretty chilly in Milwaukee and so every time I take a study break I seem to find myself daydreaming  about Santa Barbara...As you all know by now Santa Barbara is one of my favorite places in the world and I was able to visit there over my summer break and enjoy the most perfect day there! I spent time with my sister, friends, and Dan and did so many of the things that I enjoy most about that town in one day.  We ran on the beach, had tacos and drinks at Cielitos, and ended the day with Lucky's chocolate cake! Have a lovely rest of your weekend and plan to hear from me more after my midterms are done at the end of the week!

I need this button...

During a tough exam week I feel like I need one of these right by my desk...just remember it's almost the weekend!

Elmo's Closet

Saw this video online and could not resist the urge to watch it.  I was a HUGE sesame street fan back in the day and this made me smile and warmed my heart! Elmo you are so in this season! Enjoy!

KA POW! (Comic Book Clothes)

Lately I have been spotting bold comic book prints all over celebs...what is this new trend??  "KA POW!"  This look keeps catching my eye and even though one could call it juvenile I actually really love it! Combine a KA POW sweater with black skinnies and bold pumps and you've got yourself a completely kick booty look! 

You can find the 3.1 Philip Lim sweater here and another more relaxed and slightly less outrageous version by Markus Lupfer here...

I am still looking for a more reasonably priced version! Crossing my fingers that I run across one before the season is over!

First Weekend Of Autumn

This weekend marked the first official weekend of fall! How did you all celebrate? Dan and I enjoyed the cool crisp midwestern weather by making pumpkin pancakes, bringing out all of the fuzzy blankets, watching a movie, and also buying (and devouring) Halloween candy!  I am looking forward to the spicy candles, falling leaves, and hot apple cider.

Oh how times have changed...

How fun are these vintage playboy magazine covers! So much classier than the covers are today....  Love the girl's outfit in the middle bottom cover.  Feeling inspired for winter with the sweater, mittens, and fur hat (except in my case the sweater would not have knitted playboy bunnies...)

Hope you all are excited for the weekend! I know that I am!!!!

Play Ball!

This summer I have gone to four baseball games: one Giants game, one Angel game, and two Brewers games! There is just something about evening summer baseball games...everyone is in a good mood, the food is fantastic, and there is no guilt in having beer and handfuls of kettle corn.  Everyone go out to a game before the season is over!

My Favorite Part of Fashion Week!

This week as you well know is fashion week and as much as I LOVE dental school part of me thinks that it would be amazing to be in the world of fabulously dressed people! Instead I am in scrubs...but thanks to technology I can watch many of the shows from NYFW and see pictures from all the events right here from my desk in Milwaukee! 

Not going to lie but my favorite part of following fashion week isn't seeing the actual shows, but instead the street style.  It just amazes me at the confidence that some of these women have.  I am going to post the looks that I would love to try to incorporate more into my look for fall.  

After looking through pictures I am seeing a lot of oversized costume jewelry (especially necklaces), tribal prints, and faux fur coats! So excited about all of this! Have any of you been following fashion week? Seeing any looks that you love or do not love for fall??

Yesterday Birthday Day!

Yesterday was my birthday and it was the perfect evening. Dan took me to sushi which I have been having mad cravings for and as a plus it gave me an excuse to dress up and get out of my scrubs! I went with floral pants, a striped sweater, a statement necklace, and a ballerina bun.  When we got home we drank sparkling red wine (my favorite!) and had dark chocolate molten cake...what more could a girl possibly want?!

This weekend we will celebrate more and I love dragging my birthday out as long as possible so I am ecstatic about that! 

Saw this cake and thought it was perfect...  Christian Louboutins and cheetah print yes please! 

( image found here, check out their other amazing baking masterpieces!) 


I am sure if any of you are fans of Man Repeller you know the jewelry line Dannijo very well! My love of shiny, colorful, oversized accessories has made me an admirer of their pieces.  Here are my FAVORITE necklaces that they are carrying for this season.  For now I will enjoy looking at them add them to the list of future purchases along with YSL pumps and Chanel bag.

Chestnut Street

Last time I was in San Francisco Dan and I spent a lovely afternoon walking around Chestnut St., it is such a hidden gem with boutiques, great cafes, and bakeries.  Next time that you are in the city stop by there and grab a bite to eat you won't regret it! Here are a few pics from our afternoon... I love the pastel victorians, girls in edgy and lovely urban apparel, and the retro look of the Presidio movie theatre.

Dan in Milwaukee!

For those of you who don't know I am so happy because Dan decided to join me in Milwaukee! He got into Marquette and is taking classes and working as a personal trainer in my favorite area of town (The Third Ward). It will be different for us living in a city, but I am really looking forward to the next few years and all of the fun (mostly studying, but some fun!) that we will have! 

New adventures are thrilling but they are even more wonderful when you get to share them with the person that you LOVE!  

Slightly nervous about how my Orange County man will be in the winters here, but he and I will have to learn together!

Kids at Heart!

Dan and I are both kids at heart...we love Spongebob, games, and especially DISNEYLAND! We went recently and it was amazing weather, not crowded, and surprisingly relaxing! We enjoyed seeing the new "Cars" land, it totally feels like you are in the movie! And at the end of the night we went to the Mad T Party which was a crazy little concert in California Adventure with people on stilts, light up drinks, and an Alice and Wonderland Band...definitely strange, but a good time! And to top the day off I got some cheetah print Mickey Mouse ears that I am sort of obsessed with.

Settling in...

The last couple of weeks have been a crazy wonderful whirlwind! After finishing my summer classes I went to CA and visited Orange County, LA, Santa Barbara, Los Gatos, and San Francisco.  I have stories to share from all of those places that I will post about later this week.  Today was the first day of my second week of dental school and it is going well so far. I have been seriously slacking in all areas of blogging (reading others and writing on my own!) and now that I am starting to get into more of a groove I am hoping that I will be able to settle down and use blogging as a study break! Hope that you all are enjoying this day back at school and work after the long holiday weekend! 

{ Front to the new apartment building! It is old, but definitely has lots of charm!}
