Happy Thursday,
I know the same wall mural...
(insert eye rolling, I know)
I can't help it my photographer and I fell in love with it.
&& couldn't wait to shoot multiple outfits next to it.

The boyfriend loves the color blue and when I showed him this look,
of course he was like you never wear that with me!
Well his recent causal outfit inspired mine, I just girled it up a bit :)
Unfortunately ladies the only part of my outfit that you can still get are my shoes.
But, I hope this look inspires you to take on some Hues of Blue.

Happy Thursday Babes

Gosh Chicago needs to get it together with this weather!!
So crazy...

Anyway I have a special place in my heart for all my vintage pieces.
They all have a story to tell and I love being able to bring them to life.
I've had this vintage bomber for awhile now and wore it multiple times.
Just waiting for that perfect spot to bring it to life for you all.

I love that this style jacket is back in on trend.
I also love that this one is sheer with floral appliqué all over it.
Just doesn't get any better than that :)

Do you have any pieces that are so special to you?

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.
This past Saturday the boyfirend and I had a great dinner at Juno in Chicago.
Courtney of my bosses. They are the best!
It was amazing!! Probably the best Sushi I have had in a long time :)

The weather here in Chicago has been very crazy! 
One day we are in the 70's and now we can't even get above 40!
The warm weather had me so excited for Spring.
So I grabbed my photographer and we headed to shoot!

I drive past this mural a ton and thought why not shoot here?
Full of color and life. Perfect for Spring!
This moto jacket has quickly become one of my favorites 
and at $59 bucks why not grab yourself one.
Comes in 5 colors and I quickly want to add the navy one to my collection.

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend && enjoyed the Chicago weather!
I took full advantage of all the sunshine and made the most of the weekend.
The one thing I love about a this color no matter what you call it- is that it always looks rich.
I personally lean towards Blood Ox but that color is so very Fall & Winter.
One thing about this color is that you can YES!!! Wear it in the spring.
I opted for all black but I think a blush under it would just as beautiful.
Wishing I wore blush under this jacket now.

When I saw this bag at ALDO a few months back I snagged it.
Love the flower detail a little too much.
Just perfect for SPRING!!
It was on sale and can't wait to wear it more often.
About these shoes though...
Once again my trusty Stuart Weitzmans that I had my cobbler fix again for me.

Have a fabulous week and thank you for stopping by!

3 Easy Ways to Wear Pink... Just in time for Valentine's Day

3 Easy Ways to Wear Pink... Just in time for Valentine's Day

Happy Monday!!
I'm currently on vacation && loving every minute of getting away!
Being unplugged and shopping! What more could a girl ask for :)

With Valentine's this week I thought I would start it off with a little pink.
Okay maybe not a little, this is some bright pink!
I bought this coat years ago at Chicago boutique and I just had to have it.
I originally wore it like this!

Sometimes wearing a color that is loud is not really easy for most.
So I've come up with 3 ways to wear a bright pink.
1. Start small. Maybe try your lip. Or nail polish.
2. Find the pink that works for you. 
This one is more on the fuchsia pink side, but even a dusty pink would be nice.
3. Try pink in your accessories. 
A purse, shoes or hat like mine would be great and show off some personal style.
Before you know it you'll be rocking a pink moto jacket!

...
Wishing you all a day full of love and laughter!

Happy Tuesday
This past weekend was so fun! 
My boyfriend and I had a SuperBowl Party and really just enjoyed ourselves.
The weather in Chicago really warmed up so I decided to get out and shoot this trench of mine.
I talked about how wearing a trench when petite can be tough.
Read all about in this post.
I know this one breaks a few of my rules; but I'm wearing all black underneath.
So it works because the clean line makes me look taller!!
All black and a great pair of heels can make any petite look 6 feet tall :) xo

I also lucked out because I can totally wear this trench for valentines day too!
I'm thinking about wearing it to the brunch with the girls :)
I love the moth of February always a great time to but out the PINK!

...
Are you wearing Pink this Valentine's Day?
