I don't think there is a greater invention than the chambray jogger. I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone that disagrees with this statement. It's the perfect transitional piece for a Chicagoan who is dealing with Mother Nature's volatile temper. I know you feel me Midwesterners...
These Allison Izu joggers are created for the petite frame with several styling options in mind...pushed up (my favorite), full length or above the knee and folded over. And shoe wear...gosh, don't even get me started. So many options depending on your mood.
We actually got a glimpse of summer the other day. It was 82 degrees!
I dressed up my look with gladiator heels and a simple crop top for meetings. I think it would look adorable with a classic blazer or a graphic tee and converse sneaks. I love when a separate has so much versatility. That's my kinda closet staple!
Allison Izu is currently sold at Von Maur department stores.

Do I have back fat? Is that a thing when you get closer to 40? These are questions I've been asking myself lately. But do you wanna know the real answer? The answer is no. No, Johanna...you do not have back fat. What you have is an ill-fitting bra collection and it's time to upgrade.
I like a little drama in life. Not the people kind of drama but I like a little drama when it comes to dressing up. Enter this dress. Can you believe it is $15? Maybe you can but I think the sleeves make it look way more chic than the actual price tag.
Ever have one of those days where you have no idea what to wear and the weather gods are behaving like total misfits? Yep, that was Sunday for me. Today, currently sleeting, hailing and snowing. Oh brother.
It's true that trends are often recycled over time but polka dots for Spring is one I will never tire of. It seems like every website I turn to is laden with polka dot tops, shoes, headbands and bags. This is one trend I never worry about going too overboard with. Polka dots = happiness!
I cannot even begin to describe the last eight days to you. It was equal parts heartbreaking as it was exhausting. Our family got hit bad. As in...got hit by the flu bug and it took every single one of us down. My kids JUST returned to school today. Yep, they missed an entire week of school.
Another day of smiling through the cold. That's how it works in February, right? Whelp, if you're gonna do it, might as well stay stylish.
Consider this week an official week at home. We now have three out of four of us down for the count. My living room looks like an infirmary. I have calls and one meeting scheduled but beyond that you will find me in sweatpants this week. I think my body is still trying to decide if it's gonna give in to this nasty flu virus that has taken residence in our house.
And a Happy Tuesday to you! I feel like I am still recovering from the Super Bowl despite remaining completely sober. Is that possible? Maybe sleep is the answer. I have so much on my mind and some pretty tight deadline. Am I already dreaming about next weekend? You betcha!
Oh my gosh - I am so late with this post. I've been meaning to post it all day. Perhaps it's the frigid temps that are leaving me brain dead. You can't imagine how cold we were shooting this. Chicago is just a mess of seasons right now!
Popping in to say hello after an extremely busy weekend! And...Olivia scouted another great wall after coding class yesterday ONLY this time we had a cameo appearance by none other than the fabulous Miss Lola. Blogger pose ad all!
Another Monday. Another chance to create something good, right?!
Well, Olivia and I certainly kicked it off on the right foot considering we found this Cheshire Cat wall in the city. My pictures are not traditionally technicolor but when you see a good wall...you just gotta.
