Head to Toe Nostalgia

It's been a long time since the days my feet donned a pair of clear sandals and let me tell you -- I couldn't be happier. 

Top it all off with a little distressed denim and a tucked-in sweater and bam, we've basically hopped into a fashion time machine!

New Digs

Hey guys! 

Just wanted to give you all an update since I know it's been a while since I posted last. Things have been hectic, to say the least. I bought my first home (condo) and I've been renovating/moving in for the last few weeks, though I still have plenty of work ahead of me!

I can't wait to show you all what I've been up to, but it's not quite ready yet. I promise pictures are coming soon though. 

Thank you for understanding! If anyone has any advice for keeping their sanity during this process I'd gladly accept any tips.

Hat Head

Everyone in Chicago knows Chicago sports are big part of life in this city. The Blackhawks, the Bears, the Cubs, the Bulls... even the Sox! 

Now, just because my team lost 7-0 yesterday, doesn't mean I'm not proudly wandering around the city showing my love. I mean, they are in the playoffs after all. 

I'm so in support of the ball cap trend this spring because it just means I get wear all my favorite Chicago hats.

In the Navy

When it's spring but it's still pretty cold and windy, I say embrace it. Wear some cute undies and a flowy skirt and see where the wind takes you! 

Or not. Up to you.

Workin' It Out

At first glance, you might look at this outfit and say to yourself, "That girl is headed for a workout."

At second glance, you might then say, "Why the fuck would you wear that to work out?"

At third glance, you'd likely realize, "That girl doesn't work out."

And if you came to that realization after three glances at that photo, well, you're right. But hey! I'm getting there.

Spring in February

Let me start by saying I'm no meteorologist or anything... but I definitely know it's not supposed to be 70 degrees in Chicago in the middle of February. That being said, I'm going to enjoy the f--- out of the sunshine and pleasant warmth, while also reminding myself that this is one of many warnings Mother Nature is giving us.

Blinded in the Cold

It's winter in Chicago, and while there is a 55 in the forecast, it's more than 30 degrees colder than that at the moment. While that's really not terrible in terms of Chicago cold, it's still pretty fucking chilly. So when hibernation is an option, I take it.

I Wear Color

I promise that as I continue to fulfill my New Year's resolution to wear more color that I will wear more than just the color red, but for now, I'm really diggin' it! 

Still of course wearing my black on black on black uniform, but hey, they don't call it a uniform for nothing!

Big Red

Nothing like a big red shawl to keep you cozy on these short winter days! For the record, I am all about comfort. Comfort is key in my fashion world. 

I'm also always cold, so carrying a blanket with me at all times is ideal.

Spring Tease

With temperatures in Chicago reaching to near 60 degrees in the middle of January, I've decided to give my wardrobe a similar taste of spring -- even if it's a just one-day thing. 

But in other thoughts... #GlobalWarming
