JORD Watch

If any of my readers remember my watch post from last fall, you know I have a soft spot for a wonderfully made watch. Something that can survive every day wear but that also looks fabulous and classy with every outfit. Enter JORD Wood Watch company. These watches are absolutely amazing. They fit perfectly with sizing options upon ordering, offer a wide variety of colors and woods, and are so eye catching! The watch I went with from their ...

She Crew

Sassy tanks that help girls, offer a beautiful social commentary, and are locally handmade?! You just KNOW that’s something I’m going to be all over. This tank from {she crew}ย bears a hand screened image of a pit bull dog with the saying “Pits against Patriarchy” on the front. Calling it amazing wouldn’t even begin to cover it. I’m pulling straight from their website to tell you what {she crew} is all ...

New York Fashion Week Reflections

New York Fashion Week feels like Christmas coming early for me. I watch all the shows I can online, I follow models and bloggers and buyers and designers on snapchat to keep up to date, I have the HEED Fashion app ready and waiting on my phone for streaming during ANY downtime. Even though I’m not there, it feels like I am. By the end of New York Fashion Week, I am just as exhausted and have a massive pile of laundry waiting to be ...

Jump into Jumpsuits this Fall!

The jumpsuit might be the absolute best revolution in fashion ever. One piece of clothing. Looks fab immediately. Fun to accessorize. Makes a statement instantly. Basically, jumpsuits are the ultimate and I’m honestly not sure why my closet isn’t FILLED with them. This jumpsuit in particular is my favorite deal ever. I purchased it from thredUP, a second hand website that offers up to 90% off of designer threads. The designer, ...

There are so many different elements to the perfect cup of coffee. The beans. The roast. The grind. The machine. And, most importantly, the mug. I’ve teamed up with A Cup of Quotes to bring you my perfect cup of coffee, as served in one of their sassy and amazing mugs.

Maxi-mizing Summer

I absolutely adore wearing maxi dresses all year round but my favorite time of year for them might be the end of summer. When there’s that little bit of chill in the air so you want to have a little more coverage but you don’t want to let go of summer. You want to have fun with how you look. Andย you’re kind of over all the summer looks but not ready for fall layers yet so you want just one piece of clothing. Everything. ...

Always a bridesmaid and never a bride? That’s alright. I have some awesome tips to wear that old bridesmaid dress again! Hem it! Was it a floor length gown? Hem that baby to a length you like and wear it out. Another wedding! Yep, wear your bridesmaid dress to another wedding. Just make sure you’re not wearing a dress that’s similar to one of the wedding colors you’re attending. Dye it! Yep, you read that right. Dye ...

Fountainhead, Ravenswood

Oh do I love a good rooftop dining experience, especially in Chicago during the summer. It might be my favorite way to experience Chicago summers, actually. Good food, great weather and views, cool drinks, good company. It’s such a relaxed way to unwind. So when my cousin came in to visit, I had to wow her with a dining experience like no other. We headed to Fountainhead, a German-inspired restaurant in Ravenswood with a killer rooftop ...

Curls and Color with Hair Loft West Loop

It’s been a good long while since I did anything new with my hair, and that includes cuts! I tend to neglect my hair between sessions in a salon and the result is usually lots of dead and split ends, sad curls, and just an unhappy time for everyone. My experience with HAIR LOFT West Loop, however, was phenomenal! I worked with Christian on recommendation of the owner, Ben, and couldn’t be more pleased to report that he did an ...
