In the Bag


This first photo resembles my face when I realize tomorrow is Monday... the second photo is my face when Monday actually arrives. 

Someone give me a bed please.

Holiday Weekend


Kickin' off this long holiday weekend with some sunshine, a bikini and some much-needed R&R. God knows this pasty skin could use a little sunlight!

My Clear Love of Shoes


I feel like a lot of my current favorites are throwbacks to my childhood -- with these shoes being the latest. I have not taken them off since I got them! 

Is it really 2017? Dun dun dun....

Flower Child


Getting in touch with my hippie side again in this flowery, flowy Who What Wear gem. Did I mention it was buy one, get one half off?

Black & White


Most of my life is spent in office attire. So it's only fitting that I showcase some of that on the blog every once in a while. I'm always a fan of loose, comfortable and neutral and I think this pairing fits just that. 

But a good statement sleeve always takes it up just one notch, which is all I really need (especially when I'm waking up at 4:30 a.m. every day)

The Story of My Memorial Day Top


Let me tell you all the story of my Memorial Day tank. This red beauty from Zara was a simple yet lovely favorite of mine when I first spotted it at a store by my apartment a few weeks ago. 

I had a few other items I needed to get first, so I decided not to purchase it at the time but figured I'd come back for it soon. For the next few weeks I wasn't able to get back to the store to buy it so I figured I'd check online, and after some searching I still couldn't find it. 

After work one day, I decided to walk to the downtown location and see if I could find it there. Still, no top. I finally went back to the store where I first found this and again, scoured the store and came up empty handed. I was certain the top was gone. 

So, like any other fashion lover would do, I drowned my sadness by purchasing other items. As I went up to the counter, there it was. Sitting in a pile of clothes recently returned by a shopper two people ahead of me. And it was my size! 

If it wasn't a weird thing to do I probably would have asked to put it on right then and there. Now that I'm home, I'll be wearing it for the next week or so #DontJudge.

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.
