Stella – A Boutique That Stole My Heart

Once upon a time I lived in a land called Lincoln Nebraska where the shopping was great and the people drove like idiots.

Ok I just went with that last part. But have you ever driven in downtown Lincoln traffic on a Husker game day, or when school starts, or on any day that ends in y?? It’s a doozy I tell ya! But I am not here to talk about traffic. I am here to talk about shopping. Because shopping is what I am best at.

While living in Lincoln I worked downtown and one day as I was walking back to work after lunch I stumbled upon a little boutique called Stella. From the outside it caught my eye so I decided to stroll in and to this day it was the best decision I ever made. I cannot stress this enough to anyone who reads this blog and lives in or visits Lincoln GO TO STELLA!!! It is located in the heart of downtown Lincoln and they have so many great things. This boutique is something I miss so much about living in Lincoln. They carry pieces that are simple and classic, but still meet the ever changing fashion trends. I have never purchased anything from Stella that I didn’t absolutely love and wear to death.

Not only do they carry clothing but they have things in store from their other ventures, Loft & Craft as well as Hunter Gatherer. Sadly these two businesses came along after I moved so I have yet to experience them. But I plan to!!

Pretty Fun Things

Pretty fun things.

I like pretty fun things.

I’m pretty sure you guys like pretty fun things too!

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a shop that offered pretty fun things? Wouldn’t it be even better if you could get these pretty fun things online too?


Let me introduce you to my newest addiction, that of Alice and Wonder. I came across this online store because I follow The Daily Tay on Instagram. If you don’t follow The Daily Tay you should. Her everyday adventures with her dog Harlow are what make my day. I promise it will do the same for you!

If you find yourself in a shopping and/or style rut you need to visit them online, or if you live in the Chicago area, head over to their new store. They have the “$100 promise” which means you won’t find anything in their shop that exceeds $100 unless they feel that particular piece is worth it. HOW GREAT IS THAT! I do love shopping, but I am on a budget so knowing I can trust that I will find “pretty fun things,” at a reasonable price will keep me a very loyal customer.

I want to make a trip to Chicago specifically to visit their store because it looks so incredibly cool.  It might even up my “cool factor” a little bit. Which could definitely use some help!


Black Jumpsuit — This jumpsuit isn’t available online but I think if you hurry and go over to their Instagram account and send them a direct message they will send it to you if it is still in stock! If they are out of stock, click here for something similar!


Navy jumpsuit is available online!!

I STRONGLY encourage you to go to their site, and shop around! I have a wishlist of things I want to order so stay tuned as you will see A LOT from Alice and Wonder on Sensible Chaos!






July 4th Jumpsuit

Like any good blogger does around this time of year they post a fun filled 4th of July post!

But…..I have no cute 4th of July clothes. Those who really know me, are probably scratching their heads in utter confustion. How the HELL do I, the queen of shopping, not have a single patriotic dress, swimsuit, or shirt?! It’s true, I don’t. I’m not sure why either. Does this go against some blogger rule? I have no idea. I’m cool with it though, instead I have an awesome denim jumpsuit to share with everyone!!

I bought this jumpsuit a few months back at Von Maur and it is no longer available on their website or in-store. But don’t fret! I did find it here, so go buy it now or cry later! It’s so comfortable, soft, and the length is on point.

I’m keeping this post short and sweet as Alex, Jersey, and I have a big day planned! It consists of an inflatable pool and some adult beverages!! The adult beverages are for Alex and I, Jersey mostly sticks to H2O.

Have a safe and Happy 4th of July weekend!!
