Le Beret

Jessica Wagner

Mon Chérie 

Let’s be French! My favorite accessory for when I want to feel a bit of an escape is a classic wool beret. (As seen here.) Tipped to one side, with a slight bit of jaunty attitude. 

These cold days have me longing for adventure, and right now the closest thing to that is dressing a bit overconfidently for a foggy morning trip to the donut shop. 

Thinking about trying a beret this winter? There are so many color options out there to choose from, and at a variety of price points. This one I’ve had for so long it’s practically vintage. I found this pale pink one on Amazon here. It was inexpensive, so a perfect option if you want to experiment with this femme look. (As seen here.)

While it might seem an intimidating accessory, the easiest way to style this classic is with confidence. Try not to puff it up too much on top, or it will look a bit like a muffin. On the other end, you also don’t want it too flat, like a pancake. Style some hair around your face, to keep it soft.

While this look is trending, I’ve always loved the playful anything-but-under-the-radar feel of it. While dressing for the weekend sometimes makes for lazy tees and joggers - leopard spots, a big red bow, high-rise jeans (last seen here) and mega babe boots make for a perfect combo when trying to break free from the heaviness of winter and have a little fun, even if you have to create it yourself. 

If you can’t have a weekend adventure, accept the grand adventure of being you {with a French hat or maybe just some french fries.}

Ice Shove : A Free Woman On Top of The World

With the Women's March happening this weekend, it seemed like a good time remind the world THE FUTURE IS FEMALE! I am all-in for supporting female empowerment with this sporty tee by L’ecole Des Femmes. It's a stretchy cotton-blend with bold red graphics that will help you practice your French - “a free woman.”

I seriously felt the part scaling the giant wall of ice that formed this week in Port Clinton, Ohio during the perfect mix of wind and temps that created an "ice shove." Some piles were up to 40 feet high! 

This shoot might be my favorite cold-weather adventure we've ever had. It was incredible to explore these gigantic forms on Lake Erie at our favorite summer spot. I’ve been visiting this place since I was a little kid. It was so surreal to see the beach transformed into a frozen arctic wall.

I'm more of a warm weather adventurer but my wanderlust kicked in when we saw the scale and magnitude of the natural ice forms. We knew it was worth bundling up the kids and driving out before the temps transform them back into puddles.

Of course I was embarrassing the kids and singing "Frozen" at the top of my lungs - {let it gooo!!!} like a kid myself. ;)

It was almost 40 degrees out which made it extra slippery, so I was nervous letting the kids scoot around on the ice, but at least 60+ people were also out and about taking photos, sliding down the ice walls and enjoying the sunshine. I'm so happy we got to explore the phenomenon in person.  

There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.

I am so proud of what women everywhere have accomplished this year. Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.

Gingham Skirt & Blue Sky Rooftops

Dress Up Your Weekend {But Keep It Chill}

It feels like summer over here on The Weekender

Lately I’ve been feeling inspired by times of nostalgia and innocence.

Clean simplistic lines and a refined sense of girlish style. Flirty tops and breezy skirts. Gingham, floral motifs, and anything in a shade of rosé are invading my closet. Take these daisy print sunnies and crochet top – creative with a quirky charm all their own.

Today’s editorial was a serendipitous event. We were headed downtown planning to shoot a very different feel to this look, but due to unexpected traffic from other events had to relocate.

So, we headed to the top of the rooftop parking lot where we found ourselves alone- soaking in the sunshine and blue skies. The wind worked with us (for once!) and it might be the chicest outfit you can think of wearing on an abandoned rooftop.

I picked up this vintage parasol at a little antique shop by the lake for $6. It spoke to me. (I mean anything in this shade of pink speaks to me.) It’s the real deal you guys. It just feels like there is some dreamy romantic story behind the intricate curled handle and pretty scalloped edges. It’s in great shape too! I am dying to know the tale of the previous owner. (Me being idyllic - when probably it just sat in a back closet or some attic for the last so many years.)

By the way, have you heard, have you heard? Gingham is THE print of this summer. It’s no surprise that I’ve been wearing this gingham skirt since I picked it up (another vintage find – but local this time – House of Dow) with just about anything. It’s the perfect excuse to wear gingham non-stop with my summer tees, tanks and graphic tops without looking boring.

Talking about current addictions… besides millennial pink hair, daisy print and a chilled 4 pack of Babe Rosé (with bubbles) these Noonday Collection Parlor Earrings are the tops. They deserve an award for creative versatility. They can be styled 4 ways – a simple gold stud, dressed up with an extender or ear jacket or the full look. I just can’t deal with how cool they are. You can literally wear a bed sheet and as long as you’ve got these earrings on, you will be the chicest person in the room. Seriously, you should try it! I love how they light up when the sunshine hits them just right. I’m also wearing a Noonday necklace made of artillery from Ethiopia, with a moving story behind it (read here) and these gorge bangles are a wardrobe staple! They come in a set of 5. Every woman should have a neutral stack of bangles in her jewelry box. The largest one is made with natural Mother of Pearl!

***Don't forget, June is an extra special month, as a portion of all Noonday Collection sales support the giveback impact and social needs in HaitiNoonday is hoping to raise enough funds to build a mother and daughter a home. I can’t think of a better reason to elevate your summer look!

There are a few other telltale signs of oncoming summer -these things that make me exited: a sun kissed glowlonger days and campfire nights, the relaxation of enjoying a grilled meal outside on the patio and the anticipation of planning a vacation or weekend get-away. After editing this shoot I am lusting for an adventure with real castle backdrops on a bustling coastline. Where do you plan to travel this season? If I could go anywhere it would be France!

On that note, I am off to get ready for a wedding, as the kids are with Mimi and Papa! YAY! (Pop the champagne!)

I wish you all the loveliest weekend! You can find me on the dance floor. :)
