wine night no. 5

Ladies and gentlemen, this is mambo–ehem, I mean wine night–numba 5! So now that we’ve done this a few times, I would hope that you have your glass at the ready, but just in case you came ill-prepared, I’ll give you a quick pause to fill up! Ready?! I’m trying to do these posts about once a month, and realized that in the past two I had really slacked, so I’m really trying to be on top of things now! Here’s what you’ll find in this post: an Instagram (@madeinmissouri) round-up of life as a 24-year-old, and a little bit about life after turning 24! Basically, the last wine night was the day before my birthday so I feel extra special being able to say that all of this is not the stuff of a young naive gal of 23…maybe not. Moving on to the ‘grams. || mock neck lace top (similar linked) || wine-colored skinnies || leopard flats || Ray-Ban aviators || || leggings || white t-shirt (similar linked, mine not online!) || running jacket || pink running shoes (literally swear by these!) || || Louis Vuitton key pouch || || Free People ots sweater || || Barbour jacket || pink scarf || Hudson […]

spring fever & a GIVEAWAY!

Happy Pre-Friday, friends! So excited for you all to join me for a super fun post featuring a fantastic outfit and, you guess it, a GIVEAWAY!! Did the title give it away? Probably. So I’ve been in major spring mode lately and am looking for any excuse to bust out some of my favorites for the upcoming season! This adorable cross-back ruffle top is major heart eyes for me and I cannot wait to wear it nonstop! You guys know I’m a sucker for ruffles, but a fun back and my favorite neutral color?! Yes please! The only thing cuter than the front is the darling crisscross back! Also, you CANNOT beat the price. For under $20, you could buy one for every day of the week! If you guys saw on my Insta-story last week, I finally got the dream distressed skinnies! I had seen them on SO MANNY of my favorite bloggers, but I could not get my hands on a pair for the longest time. After several days/weeks of checking the stock, I finally was able to find them in my size. Oh my goodness, you guys. It was love at first fit! They are super flattering, […]

sporty chic with adidas superstars

Yay we made it to Friday! I’m sorry I’m a day late on this post again, I’ve become a little unorganized with the blog because of some weather and some work. But nonetheless, I’ll be back on track by next week! Anyways, I finally caved and bought the so-coveted Adidas superstars! I’ll be honest, I had put off buying these because I just wasn’t sure that I could pull them off! I mean sure, they look so sporty and cute and casual on everyone else but me? Ehh…I have been seeing them with literally every type of outfit (jeans, shorts, dresses, etc.), and was really wary of being able to wear them, much less style them as effortlessly as it looks in photos! You guys, I was so wrong! First of all, they do still kind of look like the shoes that all the characters of the show Doug (hello 90s kid) wear, but that’s ok. I wear white converses quite a bit with so many different pieces, and these white Adidas Superstars are such a perfect substitute! I’m so excited to break these little babies out all through spring, I’ll definitely be putting more looks together with them. They’re so easy […]

leopard flats + tassel fun

So if you guys saw my January favorites video (go take a peek here), some of the featured items in today’s post will look familiar! It was part of my New Year’s Resolution to brighten up my closet with some fun colorful pieces, and I’m excited to showcase some of those little beauties today! As I mentioned in the video, one of my favorite bloggers, Kate, from Lonestar Southern (seriously, she’s the most darling thing I’ve ever come across and I low-key wish she was my bestie…#noshame), recently debuted these ADORABLE leopard print flats. They are under $100, real calf hair, and my new favorite things to slip into. I actually don’t own any leopard and gladly made an exception for these. Sometimes I worry about prints being too loud and I’m a little weary of how it looks, but certainly not with these flats. They are so classy and elegant, and the print can be worn as a neutral (aka every day in my book)! The shape is more of a loafer style with a cute little heel to dress them up. If I worked in an office setting I would definitely be wearing these babies non-stop, but since […]
