Transitioning the Tropics!
I'm about to go on a massive closet purge but before I do...I'm taking a good look at what items I can transition simply with another layer. Case and point...this cami dress.
Why yes, it is exceedingly tropical and looks amazing when accompanied with a pina colada...fact is, I won't be near a beach anytime soon. So, let's make it work overtime into the Fall. Pink and green is a match made in heaven. I've chosen to toughen it up with leather and sneaks. Easy fix for this mom!
I wore this to a meeting and could easily make it date-night ready with a simple switch of the heels. Those are the kind of fixes I look for these days when I shop online.
In truth: you won't find me at brick and mortar stores for two reasons.
- My kids don't have the patience.
- I'd rather be outside lapping up the sunshine before the weather turns.
That's fair right?
Lately, I gravitate to these shoes more than I care to admit but then again, you gotta do what works for you. These are working for me 100%.
I always tell people, when asked of course, don't shove everything to the back of your closet just because Fall colors and jewel tones are in. Make your closet work for you. There are no rules in fashion. You make the rules. Wear what makes you happy!
Happy Tuesday...shop my look below:
While my wardrobe has decidedly taken a turn for neutrals; I still have my color moments and well, winter is still in the building if you live in Chicago. So…we back to sweaters. Does this green count as a neutral because I lurve it! I cannot tell you how many DMs and comments I received when I posted on IG so here are the Q+A’s:
Hi! Popping in to say, “I’m still alive!” Busy work weeks will do that to you! All that being said, I have some really fun pieces to share starting with this balloon sleeve top. I am somewhat of a late bloomer when it comes to online shopping destinations. I know what I like and I am loyal. Stumbling upon Vici was a happy accident. Thank you Instagram gods.
I punctuate every outfit I put together with shoes. It’s always the frosting on the proverbial fashion cake. I’m just a shoe girl and it’s always been that way.
It’s also true that I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect red boot for what seems like my entire life. An exaggeration, I assure you but it feels that way. It’s always when you’re not looking that you find exactly what you need. Match that with a budget freeze you have yourself the perfect problem. Until now…
Solopreneur. Mompreneur. Entrepreneur. They all point to the same title but what does it mean for you as you contemplate this roller coaster of a journey? I can sum it up in two words: wildly exhausting. Wild and exhausting don’t always have to have a negative connotation. I was a wild 20-something which = I had a heck of a lot of fun! Traveling Europe was exhausting which = fulfilling, enriching, my brain exploded with an appreciation for a different culture.
In case you don’t live in the Midwest, it is f-f-f-f-freezing here. Dressing cute is still a priority but warmth is everything and while I never thought I would be a pullover girl, I can tell you I have officially converted this week! And the best news of all is that the one I am wearing is a mere $20! You cannot beat that!
It recently dawned on me that it’s been ages since I last did an outfit post. I guess life has been busy! Trust me, I’ve been wearing clothes. I swear!
You may have your NYE outfit picked out. Where are my procrastinators out there?
It’s almost too good to be true…a rare Monday post. I used to be so diligent!
I’ve recovered, and I 100% mean “recovered”, from a busy weekend…ready to tackle Monday. This is what it felt like before when work wasn’t as busy and I was actually productive during the work week. It feels great!
We had the perfect Fall weather this weekend, which if you don’t know me, makes my heart so very happy!
