73 Questions With Madeline

Alright guys, this week we are doing something a little different here on Wear We Roam. While I love my weekly fashion posts, I thought I would switch it up this week with something that will help everyone get to know me better! As this bog continues to grow, I hope I can keep giving everyone a little insight into who I am beyond my taste in clothes. 

This week we are doing a mock Vogue 73 questions post (is anyone else totally obsessed with these videos?!) If you don't know what I'm referencing, Vogue often makes videos interviewing celebrities or influencers and asks them 73 random questions – basically questions they typically don't get asked but give us a sense of who they are. Although this is clearly not Vogue, a girl can dream! Let's get started!

Trending: Polka Dots

Never did I ever think polka dots would make a comeback, especially after my childhood days of rocking the pattern in honor of Minnie Mouse, but fashion will always surprise you!

Orange Is The New Black?

I hate to type it, let alone think it, but orange really may be the new black. This fall, we are seeing more orange and yellow than ever before, and for once, I'm not mad about it.

Fall Slip Dresses

Slip dresses were huge last year, and it seems like the trend will carry into fall. While these light weight dresses were great for the summer heat, they are one of the easiest pieces to transition into the colder seasons – you just have to make a few minor changes.

'The Blogger' Jumpsuit


While I'm sure many of you have heard of the amazing Jessie James Decker, whether it be for her music, her reality TV show, or her gorgeous husband. But how many of you have heard of Jessie's clothing brand "Kittenish"?

Post-Labor Day Whites

While we technically aren't supposed to be wearing white anymore, it's good to break the rules every now and then, especially when it involves a blouse like this one.

LA Travel Diary

Wear We Roam is finally roaming! 

Last weekend, I shipped off to Los Angeles for my best friend's birthday and seriously had the best weekend. I've surprisingly never been to California, so this was a really exciting trip for me. I toured as many areas around LA as I could, ate at some amazing restaurants and even had a HUGE celebrity sighting (keep reading to find out who!) After finally catching up on some much needed sleep, I put together this travel diary to discuss what I loved most, what I wouldn't do again and the memories that will last a lifetime. Let's dive right in!

On Repeat

Déjà vu, right? If you follow me on Instagram, you've definitely seen this on my feed once or twice before, but let me explain why.

dome BEAUTY Finds

Calling all Chicago beauty lovers! After looking everywhere for writing jobs post-graduation, I came across an opportunity at dome BEAUTY and instantly fell in love with their products! Some of you are probably wondering if this is a sponsored post and it is not – these are my true, honest opinions about this brand, and because of my love for the products, I wanted to share.

Latico Leathers


Today we are talking all about Latico Leathers! I've been looking at Latico's bags for a while now, but by coincidence, I received this bag from their brand for graduation. I can't find it online in black but did find it in berry (shop here). I originally fell in love with Latico when I came across this backpack. Isn't it perfect?!  I also recently came across the Blake bag in mahogany and I'm obsessed! I'm hoping to get one of them in the next few months.

T-Shirt Dress With a Twist


I can't believe it is already August! This summer is totally flying by but the temperatures have remained high, making it impossible to throw on my favorite pair of jeans.

The Future is Female


One fact I stand firmly by is the fact that women are strong, powerful and "the future." I started Wear We Roam not just with the hopes of breaking into the fashion journalism industry, but with a goal of inspiring and empowering young women like myself. More than anything, I want this blog to empower women (and men) to feel good in their own skin, so I hope to do more posts like this in the future. Okay – now let's get to the look.

WRAPPED UP

Can you tell I've been obsessed with blue lately? After months of wearing black all winter long, it feels nice to finally switch it up with some brighter colors. Literally every time I wear this dress someone compliments the color of it – it's so beautiful!

BACK TO THE BEGINNING

In honor of Wear We Roam turning one this month, I thought we would look back on how I got started and where I'm hoping to take the blog in the future.

CASUAL SUMMER NIGHTS

June is one of the few months of the year where I know I'm going to see my friends who I grew up with and I look forward to these few short weeks every year. While we love to go out in downtown Chicago, sometimes we have more fun catching up with a bottle of wine, reminiscing about all our crazy antics and our plans for the future. For these nights, I always turn to a casual cute look that will keep me warm as the temperature drops while we talk into the night.

GINGHAM EVERYTHING


This season has been all about gingham and I'm loving it! I mostly gravitate towards the classic black and white gingham prints but I've seen gingham in every shade you could imagine every time I'm out shopping. I bought this pair from Zara after seeing them on Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What (unfortunately they are now sold out but I linked some similar pairs below). They are incredibly comfortable and actually so much more versatile than I initially thought and I've worn them a ton since getting them.

BLUE DRESS OBSESSED



This summer, I've been swapping out my shorts for dresses and rompers. They are SO much more comfortable than denim shorts and can be dressed both up and down. What I love most about both dresses and rompers is that it's a complete outfit – you just throw it on, pick a nice pair of shoes, and you're done.

#OOTD 06.05

It's officially *almost* summer and it is HOT! There's nothing I hate more about the summer than denim shorts, but denim skirts are a totally different story.

RUFFLED UP



The temperatures are finally heating up and spring is fully underway, so it's time to put away those all black sweaters and pull out something with a pop of color. I decided to really switch it up from my normal, understated looks in favor of this pink sweater with dramatic tiered sleeves.

BAND TEE

Band tee's are a huge trend right now and there are so many ways to wear them! I've posted before about how I styled by Yeezus concert t-shirt, with simple black jeans and a vintage denim jacket, but here I switched it up a bit. There are endless ways you can dress up or dress down a simple concert tee, it's one of my favorite looks for when I'm in a rush!

FLORAL BOMBERS

Hi, loves! I recently got this bomber after being inspired by my favorite bloggers, Somewhere Lately, and absolutely love it! It has me dreaming of spring & warmer weather and I love the sheerness to it, it makes it more unique.

SEEING STARS

One of the very few benefits of winter in the Midwest is that when the water freezes over, we can go sliding across the frozen lake. Even though it was almost 50° today, I still dared to step out on the ice in my new Brandy Melville sweater (exact link here).

YEEZY SEASON


Winter is here! As you can tell it's finally snowing and yes, I am very cold without my winter jacket.

SWEATER WEATHER

My semester is officially in full swing and though morning classes are never easy, there's still a way to look cute and feel comfortable for a day full of lectures.

NOT YOUR TYPICAL WINTER LAYERS


During these cold winter months, style gurus around the world demonstrate how to do the layered look by somehow managing to not look like a snowball in layers of sweaters and jackets paired with precision. But this winter I'm focused on a different layering trend — necklaces.

& I'M BACK

It's been months and months but I'm finally back and better than ever! Thank you so much to The Sunday Studio for this amazing new blog theme. When I first began this blog I spent HOURS messing around with the template and HTML codes to try to get it to look exactly how I wanted but it just wasn't working for me. So, as any lazy college girl does, I essentially gave up on this blog. Normally I'm not the type to give up and it was eating away at me that I had put so much time and effort into this blog but was pushing it to the side. Thankfully, I came across The Sunday Studio on Etsy and here we are!
