Follow my blog with Bloglovin   Pattern mixing can seem challenging at times. There are a few questions I ask myself when pattern mixing. What patterns can be mixed? Do these patterns go together? What color schemes can be mixed? If I mix patterns will it look intentional or like I don’t know how to dress? Don’t be scared! You too can pattern mix like a pro! Some designers and stores are even making it easy for you and combining two patterns in one. How easy is that? No thinking involved! It’s practically foolproof! There are actually unofficial rules to pattern mixing. So if you’re not looking to purchase anything new for your closet stick to these rules to pattern mix with pieces you already own. Work with the same color palette. The prints should share at least one color. Choose patterns that are different scales. I love mixing florals […]

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Whoa…it has been a hot minute! I’ve been a little MIA lately, just super busy. Also I’ve been in a little bit of a funk and not feeling very creative. I think what I need is to be better at planning and organizing my thoughts. So welcome back to Lifestyle by Katie! I’ve got several Spring fashion posts cued up and my first one is on a transitional piece that will help you get out of your Winter wardrobe and into Spring fashion faster! When it’s still in the 30’s during the first week of April, you believe Spring will never arrive! Ok, that’s pretty dramatic but seriously I am sick of this weather! I want to start wearing all the hot Spring trends but it’s still too cold. I recently picked up this long sleeve sheer top that I have a feeling I’ll be […]

I am completely obsessed with over-the-knee boots, I wear them almost on a daily basis, but I saw these red sock booties at Target and I was like “I saw them and I just had to have them!” (Name that commercial!) I couldn’t resist getting these for Valentine’s Day. They are so comfortable, easy to walk in and also the fiercest shoes I have seen in a while. These are a dupe for the Stuart Weitzman The Cling Bootie but would you rather pay $600 or $38? No question! These fab booties also come in white and pink. Those pink ones are calling my name! I love a good statement piece, whether it’s a chunky necklace, dangling earrings, color popping handbag or a funky pair of shoes. Red is such a fierce color. It’s also classic and timeless. These boots are hot, beautiful and make everything look better. Subtle they […]

My favorite fall activity is going to the pumpkin patch! I rarely carve pumpkins anymore so going later in the season is fine with me. Luckily we went out on one of the last warm sunny days before it turned cold. We drove up to almost the Illinois/Wisconsin border to Richardson Adventure Farm in Spring Grove. I had never been there before and the line to get in was crazy long. It’s quite a large farm with the World’s Largest Corn Maze! The corn maze is 10 miles of trail winding through 28 acres of live corn. What is even cooler about their corn maze is that it pays tribute to the 2016 World Series Champions, the Chicago Cubs! It is truly a masterpiece. I mean how cool is that?!?
