Fashion should be fun. I’ve been so uninspired lately. I have to tell you. Casual items - my wish list is long. Dressier options - not so much.Read More
In a cozy state of mind this morning. How about you? This is sweater weather folks...keep the cups of piping hot coffee coming! I've started putting together Christmas lists and hiding gifts. Full speed ahead but while you're here...let me share a few items that I am coveting heavily.
Husband - are you reading this? Take note!Read More
It's getting spooooooky in here. How cute is this doorstep? I found it via a Blissful Nest - swooning over that outdoor rug, right? We are totally in the spirit and the house is decked out. The Halloween parties are commencing, the sweaters are coming out of the closet and the chocolate is being eaten in copious amounts. Whoops!Read More
If there is one thing you can count on Chicago for - it's raging mood swings when it comes to weather. It's totally insane. For example, last week I wore this "almost leather" skirt to our seminar and meetings. Yesterday it was 92 and I was wearing a sundress. I surrender. Don't I say this every year actually?Read More
Doesn't it seem like everyone is in Mexico? I swear. Envious...a bit but hey, Spring is right around the corner and I'm feeling it big time. Maxis, tanks, sandals and more...today's round up is Spring Break inspired and if you're jumping on a plane to jet set to the nearest pearly, white beach - get on this shopping list muy pronto.Read More
Today is going to be an interesting day isn't it? November has been a monumental month. First the Cubbies and now the potential of a woman leading our nation. Not sure what's next but I'm exhausted. How about you? Okay, that's an exaggeration. I'm just really exhausted from reading everyone's opinions on politics. All right already!
Let's talk about shopping instead. That's a neutral enough subject. How amazing is that blush coat? That's going on the Santa list for sure! The rest of my choices I observed whilst in NYC because you know you can always count on that city for fashion. And it was indeed juicy. Take a gander...Read More
A new season brings new choices. Always an exciting moment for the Midwesterner. Beyond the many things that excite me, it's an opportunity to sift through the closet and purge the old. My favorite.Read More
One of my favorite gifts this Christmas was this faux jacket from my husband. It's the perfect amount of attitude when you're lacking outfit inspiration or it's just freezing. Readers...meet Chicago. Chicago...meet the readers.
I bought this vintage dress years ago from a boutique that is sadly no longer in business. I often think about donating it but then I hesitate. For once, hesitation worked in my favor. This coat literally breathed new life into it. See...I'm really trying to reduce, reuse, recycle.Read More
Officially...this will be my Valentine's outfit. Typically not a floral person of sorts; I simply adore the large scale flowers on this dress. And the voluminous skirt = major fun!
The only challenge I had was finding a topcoat that wouldn't complete with the structure of the dress. Leopard saves the day...again!Read More
