Fall weather often gets me thinking about Paris and the semester I spent abroad there. For me that meant surviving on baguettes and cheese and trying to dress French chic on a budget. But these spreads from the October issue of Marie Claire Australia have me thinking about a different kind of Paris. One with bold colors, rich fabrics, fabulous backdrops, and over the top dresses. So…do over?

Hi everyone, Liz here from So Much to Smile About, a DC-based fashion and lifestyle blog! When Nikki told me she was headed to Wisconsin for a vacation, I was instantly excited for her! Even though I call DC home, growing up in Wisconsin was pretty amazing. Few people know that I once showed a heifer in the county fair and was President of my 4-H club! But Wisconsin isn’t all dairyland. It’s an absolutely beautiful state with lots of art, music, and outdoor activities. Still, one of my favorite things to do when I visit is hang out around a campfire with my family. With that in mind, I put together a few things perfect for any midwestern vacation!
shirt, shorts, sunglasses, striped dress, banket, firepit, shirtdress
Have a wonderful stay in Wisconsin, Nikki!
