A few weeks ago I started a Capsule Wardrobe, you can read that post here. I wanted to simplify my wardrobe and to finally have a wardrobe that I was really happy and comfortable with. The Capsule Wardrobe was the answer to that and I am still a bit in shock of how much it has simplified so many aspects of my life, from getting ready in the morning to picking out something to wear for a specific occasion. For those who don’t know the Capsule Wardrobe is a 37ish piece wardrobe that consists only of versatile clothing and shoes that you ABSOLUTELY love that changes seasonally, read my full post for more insight. 37 might not seem like a huge number but once you have only the stuff you love in your wardrobe, life gets so much easier and you also realize how many versatile outfit you can exactly make. I wanted to share with you a few outfits from my Capsule Wardrobe to show you just how versatile it actually is. I have come of with various occasions throughout any given weekend that require different outfits. I had a lot of fun creating these looks, let me know if you would like to see more posts like this!
One morning earlier this week I woke up with a penchant for doughnuts. But not just any doughnuts, Holey Moley doughnuts. If you’re not a Milwaukee-ian you probably don’t know what I am talking about. Holey Moley is best described as doughnuts sent from doughnut heaven to fill the void in our empty doughnut souls. Seriously though, Holey Moley makes some spectacular doughnuts. Holey Moley makes an array of doughnuts, fresh, every morning including cake, yeast, filled, fritters and some are even gluten and vegan friendly.
It took no convincing Harrison to hop out of bed and roll out on our bikes down to Holey Moley. The gods must have loved us that day because it was Holey Moley’s 1 year anniversary and they were giving out…wait for it…FREE DOUGHNUTS! I felt a renewed sense of hope upon finding this out and I’m pretty sure that I saw a tear in Harrison’s eye. So naturally we got extra doughnuts besides the free ones they were doling out. We took the free doughnuts home with us and ate them later on in the week which turned into the perfect mid-morning treat. I got the Vanilla Cream and Harrison got the PBC (peanut butter chocolate). Vanilla Cream might sound like the most boring option to choose out of all the interesting and creative flavors Holey Moley specializes in but the creamy vanilla filling is so classically irresistible. Harrison was relieved that they changed the PBCB (peanut butter chocolate bacon) as he had just made the switch into the world of vegetarianism with me. He told me the PBC was actually better than the PBCB, shocking I know!
Holey Moley gets even better because they serve amazing coffee too. As stated in our previous post, we’re on the hunt for the best coffee in Milwaukee. Holey Moley might just be up there at the top but our findings are currently inconclusive. Holey Moley serves coffee from Hawthorne Coffee Roasters which upon further research on the web, Hawthorne is a Milwaukee coffee roaster that vends out of Holey Moley, various farmer’s markets in the area and another local Milwaukee restaurant. I must admit that Harrison and I are kind of caffeine addicts and we normally don’t feel that “caffeine kick” anymore… except when drinking Hawthorne’s coffee; we get that same ecstatic feeling we used to get when we started drinking coffee many many years ago. Most coffee drinkers in Milwaukee know that strong coffee and Milwaukee are just two words that go together, but if they haven’t tired Hawthorne’s then they haven’t seen nothing yet.
If you love strong coffee and doughnuts sent from the gods like us, let us know your favorite places to get your fix.
See you soon!
Hannah’s outfit details: Tunic & Jeans – Asos, Sandals – Birkenstock, Bag – Thrifted
Harrison’s outfit details: Jeans – Target, T-Shirt – Gap, Sneakers – Converse, Watch – Timex
Our first post is full of some typical Hannah and Harrison antics. Harrison spent half the day at work while I lead a yoga class this morning. So, by the time 4 o’clock rolled around we were ready to blow some steam and go on a little adventure. In typical Milwaukee fashion there were about 5 events going on this weekend. Traffic was absolutely bonkers but our bicycles came to the rescue once again. We weaved through traffic and headed north towards Shorewood.
I wore this mod skirt from Forever 21 circa 2013, I like to think that I’ve outgrown Forever 21 but I pull this skirt out every once and awhile. My shirt is from Gap, clogs are Moheda and the bag is thrifted.
Harrison wore those shorts which are from H&M; he rolls them up a bit to add his cool “edge” to the look. The shirt is from American Eagle. He also likes to think that he’s outgrown AE but just the same. His shoes are Birkenstocks sister brand called Betula.
Per usual, we decided to grab some iced coffee and treats from Colectivo to escape the summer sun. We got the chocolate dipped macaroon and the cream cheese brownie. Colectivo claims that these are Milwaukee’s best brownies and from our further research we can confirm this, for now. Brownie research is very important, highly regarded stuff here guys. On a slight side note, Harrison and I are on the quest to find Milwaukee’s best coffee. For those of you who don’t know this, Milwaukee is actually the coffee capitol of the USA. Believe me here, there are at least 6 independent coffee roasters in this Midwestern city. Somehow and someway we always end up at one Colectivo or another. I like to think of it as our “Starbucks.” But stayed tuned for our continued quest to find Milwaukee’s best coffee.
Anyways, we chose our seats and low and behold I gazed up and saw some photos of Sheboygan, WI surfers being hung on the wall right next to us. I’m from Sheboygan and let me say, you can never really fully escape its charm.
Afterwards we headed back home. It may not seem like much but, our little adventure added something special to a somewhat seemingly normal day. That’s what life’s all about folks…the little moments.
Anyways, bye for now.
