Swimsuit Love All Summer Long | fab’rik Style

At this point, it’s no secret how much I love fab’rik Wicker Park. Maria, the owner, is a truly wonderful human being and I’ve never gotten clothes from her that I didn’t absolutely love! So when I heard  she was releasing swimsuits, you KNOW I was all over that. This is made even better by the fact that they’re all one-piece beauties. I’m sure by now you’ve read my One Piece Swimsuit Hack post but these pieces don’t need to be hacked ...

A Rose by Any Other Name

The Rose is without an explanation; She blooms because She blooms. – Angelus Silesius, German Poet Happy July! 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 ...

Local Fashion, Local Blogger | Fabrik Wicker Park + Chicago Reader

Last week, I was somehow gifted with possibly the greatest surprise I’ve ever received. A friend messaged my wife on facebook to show that she’d found my blog in the wild of the internet.

Volunteer Park

Birthday Travels When I travel, I will often look up a few places to visit prior to leaving the comfort of my own home. Not many, not enough to make a full travel itinerary, but enough that, once I get to that place, I can explore beyond that space and really get into the meat of traveling. Volunteer Park was one of the places that I knew I needed to visit before we even entered the state of Washington. And visiting the space on my birthday ...
