Hello Sunshines,

My name is Maddi.



A little bit about the girl & her threads:

To quote the opening verse of Don’t Stop Believin’, “I’m just a small town girl,” who knew she wanted to live in the big city. Chicago was home for the past five years, where I pursued a career in Finance, met my amazing fiancé (aka Mr. Photographer), and graduated with my  MBA from Northwestern – Kellogg School of Management this June. Since then, we’ve traveled to 13 countries together and JUST settled in our new home in San Francisco!

I wanted to create a life + style blog so that I could share with others what inspires me, whether it’s my daily outfits, wedding planning, or travel tips.

What I love besides fashion:

Cooking – I’m a vegetarian, but a huge foodie. Oh and I don’t like cheese, unless it’s on pizza, and thin crust only :).

Running & Staying Active – I ran the 2016 BofA Chicago Marathon and I’m currently deciding if I’m signing up for a marathon in 2019 (SF marathon).  I try to stay active 4-5 days a week with running, Flywheel, and Pure Barre.

Traveling – Mr. Photographer and I caught the travel bug and we absolutely love exploring new places in the states and abroad. Our first trip together was a road trip to Nashville and Memphis in December ’14. Since then, we try to go on one big international trip a year and several smaller domestic trips a year. We just went on an amazing 5 week journey and I can’t wait to share our experiences with you all!

Crafting – you can find me on the crafts page of Pinterest, I also used to make high-waisted jean shorts like its my job and still wear the ones I made. I haven’t bought a pair of jean shorts since maybe 6-7 years ago.

Reading – drama + thrillers! I’m currently re-reading the Harry Potter series :).

Thanks for stopping by!
