The perfect travel tote 

I’ve always been a sucker for good fall fashion, I love getting sweaters, a darker mani and transitioning my accessories. When I was looking for a great tote bag for the fall I knew I found the perfect one when I partnered with Sondra Roberts. This bag is perfect for travel, running errands or just everyday use. I recently used it as a carry on for my trip to New York Fashion Week and I got sooooooo many compliments. With 3 large compartments ( one zippers closed ) this bag can fit everything including: 

Laptop

Headphones

Cellphone

Magazine

Snacks 

Portable charger 

Flats 

My makeup bag 

Sunnies 

A Sondra Roberts clutch ( in case you need to change up your look quick) 

And still room for so much more! 

These bags aren’t available online but you can find Sondra Roberts bags at large department stores or you can email  them at info@sondraroberts.com and the team can point you in the direction of where you can get this bag! 

Transitional style with Shopko


I admit it, I never thought I would ever find clothes that I love from Shopko. But recently I was proven wrong. Shopko has upped its style game in stores and online by bringing new brands and giving existing brands a facelift. Now that my opinions have changed I have partnered with Shopko to show you some fab looks from their new and improved apparel. 

The first look is perfect for transitioning into fall. The ponte pant are great to wear with booties or tuck into boots. The grey suede booties are the perfect neutral for fal and the Cora floral top is not only flattering with a cinched in waist but it also is flowy and comfy. 

Make sure you go check out your local Shopko store and see what great apparel they have for fall.

Refusing to follow the rules 

I’m sure everyone has heard the fashion rule: No wearing white after Labor Day. Well, Labor Day is right around the corner and I have NO intentions to pack up my white jeans anytime soon. I like to live by the motto that fashion has no rules. This fall I want to encourage you all to throw fashion rules out the window and wear what you love!
There are so many ways that you can rock white all thru fall and winter.Pair your white denim with a great chunky sweater or with a leather jacket and booties like I did. 

The best part about white is that it is a neutral color so it literally goes with ANYTHING. So to transition it into fall/winter just pair with a more fall color pallet like Bordeaux or Navy. 
Honestly the best part about fashion is being able to express yourself without ever opening your mouth. So don’t let fashion rules hold you back. Take risks, wear what you love , refuse the fashion rules and be the style icon you were meant to be.

Puppies and jewelry 


There are few things I love more than dogs and jewelry! So when I partnered with Kendra Scott at the Corners of Brookfield to host a shopping event raising money for the Wisconsin Humane Society, I knew it would be a match mad in heaven. 

Last week Sunday we had our shopping event and it went flawlessly. It was great to see people come together to support just a great cause, drink some champagne and show some fabulous jewelry from the fabulous fall collection

The Wisconsin Humane Society is near and dear to my heart because having 2 rescue fur babies of my own, I find it so important to help find other rescues find their FURever home. And let me tell you when you rescue a dog they somehow end up rescuing you back 🙂 Thank you so much to all that came out! If you  couldn’t make it you can still donate to the Wisconsin Humane Society Here

Sheer madness 


Sheer clothing is a huge trend for fall, hell Kim Kardashian has practically been walking around LA almost naked these last few weeks. But this trend can be really scary for anyone plus size or just not comfortable with their body! I wanted to try this trend for a while now but I’ll be honest was too afraid to rock it. Thinking I couldn’t pull it off. Then I realized that being afraid to rock this trend was sheer madness ! So, I just decided to say F what everyone says, F the “rules” and F what society thinks about being proud of your body as plus size women. Let me tell you this is one of my fave looks to date! I feel confident, sexy and chic. Plus I realized that the biggest critic I have was the one in my own head. So go out there, be confident and rock this trend no matter what shape or size you are:)

How to become more of a morning person. 

I admit, I’m not a morning person at all! I love my sleep and my comfy bed. So it has been a constant struggle in the morning to wake up happy and ready to take on the day. Recently I have been trying to make a conscious effort to try to become more of a morning person so I can be more productive. It’s definitely a work in progress. So I thought I would share my tips on what has helped me recently to achieve this goal, since I know I’m not the only one who struggles with this. 

1. Make your bed


One of the things that I have be notorious for was to get ready or start to get ready and then lay back down and fall back asleep. I have noticed that if I make my bed in the morning right when I get up, that it prevents this from happening. You are less likely to mess up your perfectly made bed to go back to bed. Plus you feel like you’ve accomplished or adulted first thing in the morning. 

2. Use an energizing skincare routine


My newest fave morning skin care routine actually was recently gifted to me from Origins. The ginzing is invigorating and smells amazing while helping you wake up in the morning. 

3.Cut down on tech time 


Now I know that I’m super guilty of doing this. Sometimes either before bed or right when you wake up you scroll through your phone to check emails or Facebook or Pinterest. Hey we have all been there. But this habit is actually making you get less restful sleep at night and is keeping you tired throughout the day. Instead turn off the gadgets 1 hr before bed and 1 hr after you wake up so that you are fully present for your day. 

4.Meditation or journal

Use your one hr of no tech time in the morning to pray, meditate or journal. This you time is important to set the tone for you and to prepare your intentions and attitudes for the coming day ahead. 

5.Water 


Most of us go right for the coffee or matcha first thing in the morning! And don’t get me wrong, I love my caffeine just as much as the rest of you. But being dehydrated can really take a toll on the energy in the morning. So before you grab your coffee, have a glass of water to ensure you are starting the day off right. 

6. Exercise


Working out in the morning will not only get that damn cardio out of the way first thing in the morning. But it will also give you lasting energy for the whole day:) 

Trends on trends on trends 


This outfit has everything, tassels, lace up details, cold shoulder and the it bag of the summer. Which I know what you’re thinking” Pam, you always talk about how less is more, so why are you wearing so many trends at once?”  Don’t get me wrong, I still think less is more, but this outfit works and here’s why. The key to wearing a lot of trends at once is to keep some aspect of the outfit  cohesive. I kept it all in the same color pallet, and each of the trends are not overpowering. Keeping everything in the black and red color pallet ( minus the bag, but the wooden bag is a neutral so it works) will tie the whole look together without it looking like it’s too much. 

This romper is perfect to dress up or down. The lace up neck and cold shoulder make it flirty while the knit material is so comfy. A red braided belt ties the look in with my bright red tassle earrings and Gladiator sandals pair perfectly with the lace up detailing on the top. Then add a bamboo clutch for some added texture and a pop agaist the color pallet.

It’s all in the details 


They say less is more, and sometimes there is more than meets the eye. This outfit is both! I’ve partnered  with New Look for some fun items that showcase the hidden details that make each one of these pieces. 

Having pieces in your closet that have some amazing details in them can make your outfit stand out from everyone else’s. This doesn’t mean you need to put on every trend and look like you just got attacked by a forever 21 clearance rack. This means subtle details that can be put together for one cohesive look. 

This yellow chiffon top is not only an oversized gem, but the ruching at the neck line and sleeves give it some detailing. Paired with black denim with the most adorable Pom Pom trim and the bottom make these jeans anything but basic. 

Then to tie it all together the accessories! Black heels with pearl detailed here keep the look just as exciting going as it is coming. And the Monogrammed Henri bendel cross body is perfect with a little Karl lagerfeld tassle charm to give it just a little more personality. 

Moral of the story, less is more but that doesn’t mean less has to be boring. You just have to find the hidden gems:)

How I went from being terrified of public speaking to hosting events! 


I admit the thought of public speaking used to terrify me! I would get shaky and sweaty, which isn’t a good look for this fashionista. I would always go over the worst case scenario in my head. ” what if I fall” ” what if I stumble on my words” ” what if everyone hates me”. Thankfully I was able to get over this fear and here are my 5 steps to help you overcome this too. 

1. Sometimes you just have to get out of your comfort zone! 

About 2 years ago I started doing live tv segments with Fox 6 and that has been the best way for me to get over my fear! Just getting out there and facing my fear head on was so beneficial to me. And trust me the first few times were nerve wrecking! I would be soooooooo nervous but then after a while I got more and more comfortable. Now it’s just second nature and easy. Sometimes the best way to get over something is to JUST DO IT! 

2. Be prepared

I noticed that when I prepared for what I was going to say that my nerves weren’t as bad. So if you are going to be public speaking, write out a script! Go over your lines and rehearse them. My time to go over what I’m going to say is in the car. Granted other drivers might think I’m crazy, but I will be well prepared and know exactly what I want to say.

3. Know that you will mess up 

It’s ineveitable, you’re going to mess something up. But know that 99% of the time YOU are the ONLY one who noticed. You are your worst critic and if you stumble on your words, most people will not notice. Now if you have a nipslip on stage than people are probably gonna notice lol 😂 

4. Don’t stick to the script

The best way to stay cam during a a public speaking event is to just have a conversation with the audience. Don’t get stiff and freeze up, but talk like you are talking to your best friend. If you are still nervous find a friend in the room and pretend you are just talking to them for a bit while you calm down. Yes you want to read from the script but that should be a guide. 
5. Have fun! 

The best way to loosen up on stage is to have fun! Have a fun ritual that gets you hyped up! Mine is to have a danc party in the car or in the dressing room before hand. Get pumped up and have fun! 
This last week I had the HONOR to host the Best of Bridal Awards for Wisconsin Bride Magazine. It was so much fun! And if you would like to see me host live and in person make sure you get tickets to the Milwaukee Walk Fashion Show June 9th at Turner Hall!
