Happy Monday Y'all

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving,
and stuffed your faces silly!
It really has gotten cold here in Chicago
and well I'm not sure how I feel about it.

I love my Fall and was hoping
it wouldn't reach 30 degrees anytime soon.
With December right around the corner,
it was clear that I may have to just give up my favorite season.
Le sigh'

Who am I kidding it's Chicago...
I'm grateful I'm not shoveling 12 feet of snow.
One of my favorite things about winter;
is I get to wear hats.
I love hats and well when I saw this
veiled beanie.
I knew she was coming home with me.

Different and functional.
Things don't get much better than that!

So tell me do you have any unique winter accessories?

Happy Wednesday!
I hope the beginning of your week has been going great :)
When I saw this lovely plaid poncho I had to have it! 
Only problem it was way to big!
So what does a shorty like me do?!
Take my scissors & snip snip!
How do you like the way it turned out?!

On a side note...
I have an amazing event on Friday that I am super excited about!
 I'm hosting and event at The Limited at the Oakbrook Mall from 7-9.
I really hope to see all you that live in Chicago there!!

Happy Friday

I really love a good trend now and again.
But the whole culotte trend had me
wishing I had legs for days.

It took a lot of searching 
and searching,
but I finally found the 
puuuurrrrrfect (pun intended) 

Well I'm in love.
Not only are they super comfortable, 
but they came in chetah print!!
If you know me, then you know
I also am a sucker for anything animal print.

 How you do you like wear the culotte trend?!

Happy Wednesday

You know we all have those pieces
that sometimes never get worn.
Take in point these heeled gym shoes
&& varsity bomber.

Part of me was like WTF was I thinking?!
Then I realized that 
I actually originally got them for a costume.
But to be honest, I really like them.
That my friends is what dressing is all about.
Finding things you love and just wearing them. 

So tell me any pieces you just love way too much!

Happy Monday Y'all

Hope your weekend was great!
Can we just talk about how great
this weather is! 
I am all about the crisp Fall wind,
and crunch leaves,
&& the colors.

Another thing I love about fall is
 wearing over the knee boots.
Being under 5'0 feet this trend can be hard.
Especially when a style you love,
doesn't fit right out of the box!

But when the boots
 practically go up to my hips,
its hard to want to shell out the cash.

But that is the thing about investments;
they really do make all the difference.
I invested in great quality boots,
and a cobbler.
We decided to snip off a few inches 
and re-sew them.
 Boots that even the shortest of girls can wear!

P.S. It never hurts to wear a mini skirt.

Falling for Ponchos \\


Happy Thursday Y'all
One more day till the weekend!
Insert all of the new emojis :)

Chicago has just been so nice to us, 
I don't even know where to begin.
We have been staying in the upper 50's low 60's all week.
I mean we have been having the best
weather ever!
No complaints but it almost makes me forget that it
is November.

That being said I have been living in ponchos!
I love that I can just throw one on,
and my outfit is complete.

I feel like everywhere I walk I see one.
I try to make them when I can;
but when I saw this one I begged the bf.
&& welp it came home with me.
I loved how soft it was,
it literally like wrapping yourself up in the word cozy.
Other than on other blogs and Pinterest,
I have yet to see a girl in Chicago wearing it.
Thanks OLD NAVY for that one.

Also bonus points when it can double as a blanket,
&& this one was great for an impromptu picnic.

So tell me have you jumped on the poncho bandwagon yet?
