Milwaukee, for a Minute



Aside from moving I've been on the road quite a bit since we landed here in Michigan. About a week after we got to Michigan I took off for five days to Milwaukee, where my parents live. I had a fantastic time there with my mom, dad, and sister. I got a chance to celebrate a very important event for a very amazing person - we celebrated my sister's Bachelorette party.

We went down to the Historic Third Ward in Milwaukee during the trip to meet up with some friends. Call me curmudgeonly and old but I'm always amazed at how that place has changed since I first started hanging out down town. It used to be empty and run-down, mostly abandoned but now every building is filled with a business or a restaurant or a store and it feels like it could be a slice of a much larger city.





The top and turquoise bracelets are vintage, the pants (somewhat similar here) are from Target, the shoes are from j. crew, and the purse is Kate Spade (sorry, can't find a sale link for this one any more). 


  1. Just skimming your blog for the first time. Your grey wedges caught my eye, then I stumbled upon a post about Milwaukee! Our former stomping grounds! We had our wedding reception in the Third Ward! I love this post...what perfect timing to read something about the place we calll home while we are thousands of miles away! And after taking another look, I am having major top envy here!

    1. The Third Ward is amazing these days! I moved away from Milwaukee in 2008 so it's really been a while and every time I go back I see how much it's changed! I'm there pretty frequently these days since my sister is getting married there so I head back for a bridal event every few weeks. The Third Ward seems like a great place for both a wedding reception and photos. When we go on weekends there's always at least two or three weddings having their pictures taken there. The tone of the buildings or the concrete or something in that area make the light really soft for some reason and you can get some great pictures.
