Did you get buried by snow this weekend? Here in the Cities, we got covered in a foot of snow (AKA a few inches). In this type of weather, I’m all about layering. You know the drill, you’re freezing outside but as soon as you step inside it feels like a furnace so you have to start shedding layers. And, we all have that friend whose house is always cold, so you wear all the layers, all the time 😉

This gray marled sweater from Express is the perfect layering sweater and has been on repeat for a few months. It’s not too thick so is easy to layer under a cardigan or lighter jacket like I did in the first photo. I’ve also worn it on its own with a scarf for added warmth. Because it is a lighter material, this sweater will easily transition to springtime. And, what’s especially great about a piece like this is that it’s a classic style. It’s sure to be a closet staple year over year. You can easily update it for a new year with different accessories or cardigans.

This particular sweater comes in 4 other colors and definitely runs small. I’d order up a size or two, especially if you’re looking for a looser fit. This sweater has gone in and out of stock throughout the winter, so if it’s not in stock in your size now be sure to check back throughout the week! It’s currently under $60. Because some sizes are out of stock, this sweater and this one are both very similar styles and are in the same price range!

For this outfit, I paired this sweater with a chunky, trendy necklace from Sugarfix by Baublebar. A necklace like this one can be hard to style given it’s such a statement piece. But, wearing it with a plain colored sweater and minimal other accessories is the perfect balance. Pro-tip – a statement necklace like this one is an easy way to update existing tops you already own. You can simply add it to your current wardrobe to elevate pieces you’ve had for years! Sugarfix by Baublebar is a great place to look for on-trend, on-budget jewelry as all of their pieces are under $30!

As promised in my last post, the shop tab as well as the “Currently Obsessed” section on my sidebar have been updated for the coming week! You may see some warm-weather styles appearing in these sections. I’M SORRY!! I know, especially if you live in the North, warm weather seems like years away (Kevin won’t even let me talk about it LOL). But, Kev & I booked our tickets to Sanibel Island for our trip with my family in March, and ALL I can think about is how warm it’ll be. So, of course, I’ve already started putting items on my wish list 😇. I figure we call could use a little Spring cheer to get us through the next few dreary months. And, some of you may also be taking trips coming up and may need some warm-weather gear for your travels!

After a very relaxing weekend, I’m ready to get to work this week and pound out some stuff on my to-do list. I hope you all have a productive start to your week! Be sure to check back Wednesday for a brand new post. 😘

XOXO

How & Where to Shop for Petite Denim

Fashion Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses How & Where to Shop for Petite Denim Fashion Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses How & Where to Shop for Petite Denim Fashion Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses How & Where to Shop for Petite Denim Fashion Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses How & Where to Shop for Petite Denim

Today, we’re talking about petite denim because, let’s be honest, finding cute petite jeans can be impossible at times. I know you petite ladies hear me! You’ve been on the brink of buying those trendy, chic jeans that look so great on everyone else only to discover they’re 5 inches too long on you *eyeroll*. But for those ladies reading this that can get away with wearing regular length pants, don’t worry! My fave stores for petite sizes also have sizes in regular and sometimes even tall.

Now, before we get to the petite denim deets, let’s all just take a moment to appreciate this outfit. Especially, this amazing chenille sweater. Sure, sure the denim looks great. BUT, when you can just tell the sweater is soft from a picture, can you imagine what it feels like wearing it? It’s like wearing your PJ’s in the real world and having it be acceptable. I’d been eyeing this chenille top for about a month and finally got it on cyber Monday. It comes in multiple colors and, if you remember, I’m still trying to integrate more color into my neutral-saturated winter wardrobe, so I went with green. However, the neutral colors are SO gorgeous. This sweater is currently on sale as well, and you can snag yours for under $50!  It fits TTS (true to size) and is oversized without being boxy. If you size up, you could easily wear this off one shoulder. Note – it is selling out SUPER fast and ran out of 3 colors over the weekend. I’ll link some similar styles below but if you’re looking to buy it don’t hesitate!

Alright, let’s chat about petite denim. If you’re a petite lady in the market to pick up a pair of new jeans there are a few things to keep in mind! Petite ladies are generally defined as being 5’4” or under. This means that your pants should have an inseam of 26”-30” depending on your exact height. For example, I’m 5’2”, and my inseam is typically 28-30” depending on if I want “ankle jeans” or full length. Like I’ve said before, because I’m built like my paternal aunts, I can sometimes get away with having a longer inseam. If you’re not sure what your inseam is, take your favorite pair of jeans that have the perfect length (hopefully you have at least one!) and measure the inseam.

Now, there’s nothing worse than buying a petite pair of jeans and finding that they’re too short. Like embarrassingly short. Been there, suffered through that, and I’m not looking to make anyone else go through it! So, as a petite woman, it’s very important to know your preferred inseam and pay attention to size charts on websites. If you’re shopping in person (do people still do this?), then make sure you’re trying things on. One lesson I’ve learned, NEVER assume because it’s “short” or “petite” it will fit you!

And, one last tip, if you like a pair of jeans that aren’t labeled as petite, don’t let that deter you! The jeans I’m wearing for this outfit aren’t actually “petite”. But, the inseam happens to work for me. So again, be sure you’re always reading the product/size details to ensure you know exactly what you’re getting!

These jeans from Urban Outfitters have been all over the blog, my Instagram, Twitter, Facebook – pretty much everything lately. And they’re not a new purchase. I actually bought them 3 years ago, put them at the back of my jean drawer and rediscovered them when I was sorting through clothes to get ready for the move. I’m not sure why I stopped wearing them because they fit like a dream and don’t stretch out after wearing them. They’re also currently STILL on sale for $39, which is crazy cheap for a good quality pair of jeans!

And, although I have fallen back in love with this pair from Urban Outfitters, I still have my go to stores for petite denim, which I’ve listed below!

Express

Loft

Nordstrom

Asos

5 Faux Fur Coats Under $50 You Need This Winter!

Fashion Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses 5 Faux Fur Coats Under $50 Fashion Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses 5 Faux Fur Coats Under $50 Fashion Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses 5 Faux Fur Coats Under $50

I swear, sometimes I feel like the Today show must know my blog post schedule. Earlier this week, I watched a segment on styling faux fur when I had this post scheduled for today. I mean, I guess great minds think alike, right? 😜

Either way you spin it, faux fur is a huge trend right now and will be sticking around for the foreseeable future! Kind of like Victorian collars, I initially wasn’t sure if I was cut out for this trend. But, being in a cold-weather area, I wanted a stylish coat to wear that was different from my down jacket or regular wool coat. And despite my love for faux fur/leopard print when I was 7 years old, I wasn’t sure how my adult self would look in it. It seemed too high fashion for me. And, faux fur has this stigma of being rather “cheap” looking. But, it’s come a long way since the 90’s and is definitely a trend to be embraced.

If you’re on the fence about the faux fur movement, don’t worry! For today’s post, we’ll discuss some pointers on styling this trend. I’ve also gathered 5 faux fur coats under $50 so you can “test drive” the trend without breaking the bank.

Although different colored/multi-colored fur is ULTRA trendy, feel free to stick to the basics to start! You’re always safe pairing your faux fur coat with neutrals or a monochromatic look. This means wearing a neutral color underneath (like my denim + black top here). Or you could wear a monochromatic outfit under your fur (all black, all white etc) for an instantly easy, chic look. A faux fur coat is meant to be part of the outfit. This means that you can and should wear the coat when you’re inside. If it gets too warm, take it off and show of your fabulous outfit underneath! However, keep in mind that a faux fur coat is, by definition, a statement making piece.

This faux fur coat from Forever 21 that I’m wearing is dangerously close to being sold out and for good reason. It’s $44 and is oversized without being awkwardly boxy! I’m wearing a size S, and it fits TTS (true to size). I’ve paired it with a neutral look underneath; however, it would also be perfect with an all-black look.  A warning, it does shed so exercise caution in what you wear OR just bring a lint roller with you (because that’s super convenient LOL).

And because this one is close to being sold out, this coat as well as this one are very similar alternatives and also below $50!

Here are four other amazing faux fur options under $50

  1. Leopard Faux Fur – have my eye on this one. Someone think of an excuse for me to “need” it 😏
  2. Shaggy/Teddy Faux Fur – the ultimate blogger chic
  3. Long Line Faux Fur; Option One, Option Two – the most practical style!
  4. Pink Faux Fur – for those ultra-trendy ladies

For those that don’t know, SheIn is like a Forever 21 equivalent. Be sure to read reviews/look at the sizing guides to ensure you’re ordering the correct size! It’s a perfect site for buying trendy pieces on a budget.

 

I hope everyone had a great end to their week! Kevin gets home today after being gone for work all week so I’m pretty darn excited to see him! Tonight, we’re meeting some friends and heading to a bar downtown for the Ale Asylum launch party. Ale Asylum is one of my and Kev’s favorite Wisconsin breweries and, up until now, they haven’t sold in Minnesota. I actually just picked up almost $100 worth of their beer when I was back home so we could stock up for winter (lol). We’re obviously big fans, and we obviously were born and raised in Wisconsin. For those that don’t know, Wisconsin is one of the states with more bars than grocery stores per capita. Loving beer is pretty much a part of Wisconsin culture.  And, although we definitely don’t drink like we did in college, we do enjoy an IPA or two on the weekends. 😉

Have a great weekend everyone!

3 Key Ingredients to the Perfect Date Night In or Out

Lifestyle Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses 3 key ingredients to the perfect date night Lifestyle Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses 3 key ingredients to the perfect date night Lifestyle Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses 3 key ingredients to the perfect date night

Happy Monday everyone! It’s a new week! And let me first apologize for not having any new posts go up last week. As I discussed in my latest post, I was having technical issues with the laptop I brought back to Madison, which was part of the problem. After getting back to Minneapolis, I needed a few days to recoup and have “off”. I haven’t really taken time away from working since starting to blog full time, which I will admit isn’t really healthy. I hit a wall creatively, mentally and physically and was just plain exhausted. So I decided to give myself some days to recharge! As hard as it was, it was much needed. Thank you for understanding!

This past weekend, Kevin and I had two different date days. We try to have a date night or afternoon every weekend, but decided to double up this weekend since I was gone this past week, and he’s traveling for work much of this week. We went to a Christmas market in Saint Paul on Saturday, which was super cute (and super cold!). After we went to dinner at a restaurant in Saint Paul. Yesterday, we spent the afternoon watching our new favorite Netflix show Dark. I highly recommend this show if you’re into the supernatural or if you love Stranger Things/Westworld. It is rather creepy in parts, just to warn you! It’s also in German so you’ll be reading subtitles.

To get the most out of our date nights, I’ve implemented some self-imposed rules so that I can truly enjoy everything in the moment. It’s important to spend dedicated time with those you love especially during this busy time of year when it feels like we’re stretched so thin! And remember, you don’t need a significant other to have a date night. Some of my favorite date nights are with myself (and the cats obviously!). If this last week taught me anything, it’s that it’s SO important to “date yourself” and invest in self-care. You can only properly love others if you love yourself first!

3 Key Ingredients to the Perfect Date Night Out

The Perfect Outfit

I mean this is a fashion blog, so we have to talk about your outfit, right? In my opinion, the perfect date night outfit is one you feel confident in, but one that can accommodate your plans. For me, this always means an outfit that I can eat a lot in without feeling self-conscious in afterwards… lol! This off-the-shoulder, flare-sleeve body suit from Express is perfect for a holiday date night. It’s the right color and is a giving material so doesn’t feel too tight when it’s on. With high wasted jeans like these, this makes the perfect sexy, yet comfortable date night look.

Do something outside the box

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when you’re planning your date night. Going to the same restaurant or even doing the same routine (dinner + movie; dinner + drinks etc). Lately, Kevin and I have gotten into finding a local activity to do, then going somewhere for an appetizer and then even going somewhere different for dinner. Sure, it’s a lot of moving around. But it also gives us the ability to explore the city and different cuisine, which is important since Kevin is actively trying to expand his palette! On Saturday, we spent the afternoon at the Christmas Market, then went to a bar/restaurant for appetizers. Originally, we were going to head to a different restaurant for dinner but given the dropping temps we stayed where we were, got another beer and our entrees. Having flexibility in your date night makes it more relaxing and allows us to enjoy each other instead of worrying about following “the plan”.

If you’re in the Twin Cities area, here are a few websites we look at to see local events happening near us –

Minneapolis Calendar

St Paul Calendar

Unplug!

This is important for any type of date night – in, out or with yourself. It’s important to enjoy the company of who you’re with to the fullest extent, which means putting the phone and technology away! This doesn’t mean you can’t take any photos! Just wait to post them until the next day or later. Trust me, no one has ever died because you didn’t post a photo the second it was taken, and you’ll enjoy the day/night much more if you truly experience it in person rather than through your smartphone!

3 Key Ingredients to the Perfect Date Night In

Create relaxing environment

Part of the perfect date night in, whether with your significant other or with yourself, is creating a relaxing environment. Kev and I like to light our favorite candle (we’re addicted to Bath & Body Works scented candles!) or burn our favorite essential oils. We also like to bring out all of our fuzzy blankets and settle in on the couch for a movie or TV show while something cooks in the crock pot. The mix of the candles with the scent of what’s cooking in the crock pot creates a very homey, relaxing feel throughout the apartment!

Play a game or indulge in self-care

 If you’re having a date night in with your significant other, pull out your favorite board game! Instead of just watching the TV, Kev & I love to play Scrabble or Monopoly (yes we’ll play just us two!). Playing a game really forces our attention to focus on the two of us and what we’re doing and minimizes distractions from the outside world (like social media or who might be texting!).

If you’re having a date night to yourself, try indulging in some self-care. I know a lot people find having a glass of wine with a warm bath to be the perfect relaxing night. For whatever reason, I’ve always preferred a hot shower with a body scrub to a bath. I personally think the movie What Lies Beneath scarred me when I was little, LOL. I’ll use a shampoo with an amazing scent, like Mermaid No.2 that literally smells like a Caribbean vacation. And I’ll often pair it with a body scrub like this coconut one from Bath and Body Works. I’ll follow up with a face mask and then often paint my nails as I read a good book or watch a chick flick.

Unplug!

 Yes, repeating this because it’s even more important to unplug on a date night in since you have ready access to your phone, tablet and computer. To truly relax, turn your phone on airplane mode for an hour so you literally can’t receive texts or calls (they’ll arrive after you turn it off!). This way, you have no excuse to check your phone and can really focus on your date night or on your self-indulgence. Trust me, you’ll never realize how long an hour feels until you go a full hour without checking your phone or computer. It’s the best way to recharge!

How do you spend your date nights? Are there any “rules of thumb” you follow to have the perfect date night in or out?

I hope everyone has a great start to their week!! I’m sharing my last gift guide on Wednesday, so stay tuned!!

In honor of my 27th birthday yesterday, I decided to share 20+ random facts about me! I tried to share different info from that already on my about me page so I hope you find this at least somewhat new and entertaining! Some of these will seem pretty random, but I wanted to have fun with this and give you guys a bit of insight into who I am and how I grew up!

I’m also sharing one of my favorite outfits of late. This turtleneck bodysuit has become a recent outfit staple for me and is currently on sale for $20!! Bodysuits are so nice because they give that tucked-in look without all the bulkiness of extra fabric. It fits true to size and works for petite ladies! Also loving this “coatigan” (coat + cardigan). I wore it out when it was in the teens, and it kept me warm. It’s under $100 and extremely versatile (also comes in grey!). Definitely one of the best purchases I made this fall!

So let’s start with some basics…
  1. The first thing you should know, I’m a cat lover and believe I was probably a cat in another life. I’m not saying I don’t like dogs, I just grew up with a cat, and, to be honest, dogs are literal mouth breathers. Can’t handle. (Disclaimer: Kevin is a dog lover, and we will eventually get a dog. No complaints from me as long as it’s a big dog and fluffy).
  2. I grew up in a small city outside of Madison, WI and lived in Madison for most of my adult life. If you ever travel to Wisconsin, Madison is a must-see. It’s the state capitol and on an isthmus so surrounded by two gorgeous lakes!
  3. I attended the University of Wisconsin for my undergrad and have a degree in English Lit with European Studies.
  4. Why English? I saw Macbeth at American Player’s Theatre when I was 15 and was hooked on Shakespeare immediately (#nerdalert). He wrote 38 plays, and I’ve read over 30 of them, most multiple times. King Lear is my favorite. I took an entire class on different adaptations of King Lear while studying abroad.
  5. On to point number 5! I studied abroad for about 6 months when I was 21 in Leeds, England. I LOVED IT. So many people wonder why I studied in Leeds v. London. One, London is crazy expensive. Two, I wanted to be surrounded by British people because, back then, I believed I was born not only in the wrong century, but in the wrong country. I got my wish and lived on a floor with 4 amazing British women!
  6. I’ve traveled to 10 different countries and am counting down the days when I can take Kevin back to Europe to explore!
A bit about my family…
  1. I come from a pretty small, close-knit family with a rather large extended family. I have one sister who is 8 years older than I am, and she’s married with 3 little ones! Being an aunt is the best thing! And with my sister’s family living outside of Minneapolis, we’re able to see them much more often which we’re really enjoying!
  2. My parents have always been two of my biggest supporters and two of my biggest role models. They’re both retired but you would never know it. My dad is a chair for the American Library Association and still works closely with the federal government on various grants and committees (he’s in DC as I’m writing this!) My mom is a force to be reckoned with! She’s currently mayor of my hometown, and we can’t go anywhere in Madison without running into someone she knows (and then having a 20-minute conversation).
  3. My biggest fashion influences growing up were my maternal grandma, my aunts on my dad’s side, and my sister. My grandma was very into sewing her own clothes when she was younger. I even have two of her purses from the 40’s! My aunts have always been the embodiment of fashion, and it’s likely where I get my obsession with shoes from. And my sister and I have very similar tastes and, more than once, have unknowingly bought the same clothes!
  4. This is something I talk about quite frequently, but I have a serious love for shoes that goes back for as long as I can remember. I have a memory of getting to school in 8th grade and remembering that I forgot the pair of heels I wanted to change into (in Wisconsin winters, you wear boots to school and change!). I actually called my mom and asked her to bring the shoes to school. She didn’t LOL. Also, I may have been the only person in my high school to wear snake skin heels…
  5. In that same vein, back in high school I was religious about outfit planning. To the point where I kept an outfit journal so that I never repeated the same outfit in a 3-month period. To be honest, it amazes me that it took me 26 years to figure out I should be in the fashion industry!
  6. A bit of a back story on the blog (which you can read more about here) – I originally started my Instagram account so I could post makeup and beauty shots. But realizing that was hard to juggle with a full-time office job, I started doing more natural beauty/outfit of the day posts. You can’t really walk into an office with a fully glammed out face, falsies on and everything! And my Instagram really organically evolved into the blog. I’m still very much a newbie and learning but I’m enjoying every second of it!
  7. I’m a pretty short lady – I’m 5’2” but am built like my dad’s side so have a shorter torso and longer legs (relatively speaking). For the most part, I like this. I can usually get away with buying regular length pants but crop tops are another story!
A bit of random stuff about me…
  1. I’m a sucker for a good novel, and I find the best way to relax is to curl up and read a really good book (English major, remember?). And, although I love Shakespeare, I’ve expanded my horizons into different genres like post-apocalyptic literature and suspense/mysteries. However, my favorite novels of all time are still Jane Eyre and Gone with the Wind. They are so timeless!
  2. I typically listen to pop music or a mix of indie/pop/folk. My favorite artist is for sure Katy Perry. KatyCat since ’08 and haven’t looked back since! I’m going to see her in December for the 2nd time and am beyond excited. I also love Taylor Swift and am completely over that whole feud! I actually remember sitting in a high school friend’s car in 2007 when TSwift’s “Our Song” came on the radio and her saying, “Yeah, this is a new singer, Taylor Swift, she’s pretty good” LOL – we had no idea how big she would become!
  3. My favorite types of food are Mexican and Chinese. Although if I had to just choose one food that I love, it would probably be cheese. I KNOW that is horribly stereotypical of me coming from the cheese state and all, but it’s just so good! Knowing that dairy makes me break out horribly literally breaks my heart.
  4. When I was younger, I was very into performing. I was an Irish Dancer for almost 10 years, was in a children’s play group and was even the lead in my high school’s musical. I still love to sing but now my audience is usually just Kevin and the boys (AKA my cats).
  5. Which leads into my next topic, my boys! I get a ton of questions about my cats’ names since they have human names. We got George in fall of 2013 when I was still overly obsessed with British history so I named him after King George I. Technically, George was “my cat”. Kevin then got Frank and named him after “Frank the Tank” from Old School. Not even joking. I have a vivid memory of Kevin chanting “FRANK THE TANK” as we drove back from the humane society lol!
  6. I have a HUGE sweet tooth and really have no control over my eating (I’ve been known to eat peanut butter by the spoonful). So, Kevin and I literally keep no snack food or sweets in the apartment besides pretzels LOL. I’ve founded my daily Vega One shakes are just sweet enough to trick me into thinking I’m having chocolate with breakfast.
  7. I have a love/hate relationship with working out because I hate, HATE cardio. I can never get past the feeling like I’m gonna vomit/pass out to get that mythical “runner’s high” people talk about. But, I know how important it is for overall health, and I always feel great after working out. Lately, I’ve been loving PIYO, which is a Beach Body workout (no I’m not a coach). It’s the perfect mix of yoga, pilates and cardio for someone who hates cardio!
  8. When I was 14, I got my first ipod that I still have. You know, the huge, white one with the black and white screen. I’m holding on to it as I’m convinced I’ll be able to sell it for millions someday.
  9. I’ve been a certified Starbucks addict since I was 13 (they hooked me young!). One of the first drinks I tried was a caramel macchiato but hated it because it was too bitter for me LOL. In middle school, white chocolate mochas were my jam. My friends and I would get Starbucks, then walk to Noodles and have buttered noodles and parmesan.

If you couldn’t guess from this post (or all of my others), I was blessed with the “gift of gab” as my mom calls it and often am long-winded. I also like to write a lot (the English major in me!). So, although this was a bit longer than intended, per-usual, I hope you found it enlightening and that you learned a thing or two about me!

Have a great weekend everyone!
