Summer Playlist, Last Dance | Musical Mondays

Last Dance, tonight Did you all know that I used to be a dancer? Like, age 8 through 23. Studied it in college, in London, and here in Chicago. Ballet is in my veins. So when I went to shoot this look, and I started goofing off in the grass, Sarah told me to just play around while she snapped photos. I was going to talk about the end of summer, enjoying the last of the warmth before we get to break out sweaters and scarves, but then I ...

A Rose by Any Other Name

Okay, so I know July started several days ago but I’ve always felt like July doesn’t really begin until we celebrate Independence Day and then take a day to recover from that. The first three days of July are entirely devoted to prep for the 4th, then we stay up way too late and enjoy fireworks and backyard barbeques. By the ...

California Dreamin in Fabrik Style

With the onslaught of this heat wave that Chicago’s experiencing, I find myself missing California even more. Yes, I know, it’s even hotter there. But after my trip there in February, I understand why so many people write songs about the state and why so many people are always moving there! This look is inspired by the style spotting I did while in Cali. Pair shorts from my favorite local haunt, Fabrik Wicker Park [who just keep ...
