Statement Necklace Styling and Dog!

Sunday’s outfit was inspired by Dolled Up With Liz’s post, “Never dull your sparkle!” about styling an entire outfit around a statement necklace. So that is exactly what I did, inspired entirely by her outfit. I know this chambray has been featured in my last three outfit posts. I promise that 1) it’s been clean (we’ve hat a lot of laundry to do lately. And I’ve just been tossing it in) and 2) I will ...

Vacation Week!

Happy Monday! I believe the quote “may your coffee be strong and your Monday be short” is appropriate for many today. For me, it’s vacation week! Well, it’s staycation week. I’ve got this glorious week off between my contracts at my job that’s giving me a chance to catch up with everything and be ready to go into what is going to be a VERY crazy busy spring theatre season. I’ve got 4 shows between ...

Stovetop Potpourri and Cozy Fridays

This grip of cold around Chicago hasn’t quite released yet. And this apartment, while not freezing, is certainly not warm. It’s been rather chilly around here. We’ve pulled out the heated blanket, the flannel sheets, and additional blankets on top of that. To be honest, though, that’s probably my favorite part of winter. The layers. I’m such a blanket fiend. We have no less than three blankets out at any one ...

Christmas Date #2- Joffrey Nutcracker at the Auditorium

I’m a fan of holiday traditions. My personal one is seeing the Nutcracker every year. It started during my semester in London with a Matthew Bourne adaptation (so good, highly recommend!) and has continued here in Chicago with the Joffrey Ballet’s presentation. This is now the second year my lady has come with. I love having an excuse to get all dressed up, go to dinner, and see a show. Bringing her with just makes the tradition ...

Plaid for Days- Blanket Scarf Edition

  I somehow managed to really luck out making my way to Target shortly after Thanksgiving. Wandered towards scarves just to check. This scarf has been so impossible to fine. I knew it would be fruitless but I wanted to look anyway. Lo and behold, lucky day! It is every bit as soft and snuggly as I wanted it to be.   Turtleneck sweaters mean I can style this a little differently as my neck is already being kept warm. I love wearing ...

Winter is Coming- And it's Not Stopping Me!

  Temperatures in Chicago are shamelessly and ruthlessly dropping every single day. Gone are the days of heat waves, replaced by cold snaps that never really snap back. But that isn’t going to stop my lady and I from wandering to the beach. We’ll just bundle up a little more. And then promptly un-bundle to snap some photos. Suddenly coats are infinitely better when they’re a tick sandy and you’re just on the ...

Holmes and Watson @ City Lit

Once in a while, I am not working on a show and do not have rehearsal or anything on a weekend. And on those weekends, I get to actually go see shows. It doesn’t happen very often but when it does, I’m always excited to go and see what other theatre companies are offering. City Lit is currently presenting Holmes and Watson, a dramatisation of “A Scandal in Bohemia” and “The Final Problem.” Suffice to say, ...

Chicago Fashion Week!

Chicago Fashion Week on Late Notice I hadn’t realized Chicago Fashion Week was a thing until very recently. And by very recently, I mean on the Thursday of said fashion week! Oops. Still, Thursday was apparently early enough to still manage to attend some events and get a taste for fashion in Chicago. I attended two events: HAUS of HUMANITY Menswear Runway Event and Fashion Forward! The Fashion Market Runway and Selling event. HAUS of ...
