Pink for the Win…

  Mixed two shades of pink today and was so happy to finally be able to wear this hat that’s available in four colors (and so warm!). Jeans are linked in previous post, but are now sold out, so I’ve linked 3 awesome-fitting ones below that are similar in style: –OPTION 1 -OPTION 2 -OPTION […]

Time for Blanket Scarves & OTK Boots!

  Here in Chicago we have a total of about one month (if we’re lucky) of true “Fall” weather – the kind where it’s not too cold and you don’t have to wear a coat, and can get away with cozy layers and boots without tights. One of my fave looks is a dress with […]

Hyped on stripes

  Whoever said horizontal stripes “aren’t flattering” is so wrong.  It’s all about the pattern and placement of stripes, and colors have a huge impact too! I absolutely adore this CYRUS STRIPED HOODED CARDIGAN I picked up this week, and can’t believe how comfortable and soft it is – the striped one has been close […]

This week’s top picks!

It’s FINALLY Fall weather! Scarves, boots and pumpkin everything, yes please! :)… It’s been a fun week, with traveling to see my parents in my hometown in Central Illinois, to coming back to Chicago and running around all week, as usual, for my day-job as a real estate agent. My top-picks for this week include […]

Casual Tuesday

  This wrap dress from FRANCESCAS is literally my fave comfy go-to attire for the season! It’s so flattering, as it hugs the waist but is also a looser fit.  Also, it’s under $50, so who can not like that?! My INDIA HICKS SCARF is a lightweight material that is perfect for “looking like fall” […]

Bell-sleeve sweaters & my favorite accessory

  I got to head back to my hometown in Central Illinois this weekend for some good-old Midwestern family time.  It was fun to have my mom take my blog photos, she probably gets way more excited than anyone I know to help with this!… I’m so happy that BELL SLEEVE SWEATERS LIKE THIS ONE […]

Flower Power

This CECE BRAND floral shirt is one of the highest quality button downs I own – it’s a great fabric, a mixture between the flowy-tunic material that everyone’s used to with a little bit of crisp-ness to it that reminds me of a more formal button down.  It goes great with a lot of different colors […]

An Amazon Delight

Ok, so I usually only use Amazon for my groceries and random items…but after a trip to a small boutique this summer when we were traveling in Lake Geneva, I noticed a brand called Umgee was sold a lot in the stores there. I Googled to find more options (and also price compare, which I […]

Working out is the most fun in cute outfits…

…or should I say ONLY fun for me in cute outfits… I’m not a huge gym-goer, I know for my health and mental state it makes me FEEL better and look my best – but while I’m doing it? Not the biggest fan of sweating, ruining my blow-out, and exhaustion. But really, when I do […]

It’s Fall Y’all

  And that means hoodies & booties & scarves & all the things I adore most about my closet are back! This ONE-SHOULDER SWEATSHIRT from Nordstrom is so cuddly, soft and a unique twist to the off-shoulder style. It comes in black too, which I’m also seriously considering getting before they are gone! You may […]
