I picked up this dress in December because dresses are my jam. I'm sure you're shocked at this new revelation. It was reasonably priced back then - much to my chagrin, I returned two items yesterday @ Topshop and this dress is now on super sale to the tune of a whopping $40. Darn it. This always happens to me. Swear. <today is your lucky day because I found the exact one online and linked it below>Read More
Lately I've been wanting to change up my usual sartorial choices. Sometimes I don't feel my inner girlie girl. For this look, I wanted to punch it up with a textured, layered look. My cami is faux leather and could definitely be worn alone, however; I thought it would be fun to add an extra layer of warmth rather than put it on reserve for warmer temps. My boots are from Zara. I reach for them constantly and I love the way they look with tights and dresses, too.Read More
I'm testing a new format, friends and I hope you'll opine on whether or not you like it. I can take it either way!

Capes definitely give you superhero status. I should know, this T&J Designs version gives me wings! It's also a sure fire way to dress up even the most basic of basics because let's face it...winter weather and a lack of fashion inspiration have officially arrived in Chicago. <cue the eye roll>Read More
The holidays can be so fancy that often, by Friday, I crave denim and a paired down version of my traditional uniform. Sometimes I have so many fancy separates that it's difficult for me to compose a basic outfit. Which is downright silly given that I have a gazillion basics just sitting in my closet! Ahhhh the life of a blogger!Read More
When I think of easy, everyday uniforms...I think of denim and a fitted blazer. Two classics that no woman should be without. On the days I am running like a mad woman, (cough, cough - everyday) I opt for a heel that can take me from day to night. Or, in my case, carpool lines to photo shoots to meetings to happy hour. Might I add that these scalloped beauties definitely fit the bill?Read More

If there's a pink wall...I'll find it. Happy Hump Day!
We took these photos killing time before a meeting this week. And yes, I was optimistically dressed for Spring. I spotted this top on my girlfriend Jen last season and fell in love. For $18, I think we can all agree that it's a style steal. Did I mention it's supposed to be a dress? Yeah...so there's that! I think they call this "dressing for your age."Read More
