Wine Night: Independent Spirits, Inc. in Edgewater

Neighborhood exploring is easily my favorite thing to do. Now that the weather has gotten nice enough to be outside for more than the time it takes the dog to do her thing and go back in, Sarah and I have really been spending time getting to know our neighborhood. Exploring boutiques, eating at local restaurants, visiting small pet stores, etc.! It was thus, we discovered Independent Spirits, Inc. The little boutique is WONDERFUL. My adult ...

Greenscale – Late Spring Haul

Chicago is finally starting to behave warmly! Took it long enough… And then, of course, after a week of nice warm days, we get mid-50’s and rain for the Mudderella. Let me tell you how chilly THAT was. But all is not lost! The change of weather and new job warranted a little bit of a haul to get my wardrobe up to speed. Haul included stuff from all over but mostly Forever 21. Because, let’s be real, they’re actually ...

Alex and Ani, Cinco de Meow, and other Animal Benefitting Things!

Lots to cover in a single post! Let’s get to it! So slightly more than a week ago, I won an awesome Alex and Ani giveaway by the blogger Styled by Blondie. If you’re not following her, make sure to go check her out! It was for a $35 gift certificate which equated to one bangle with shipping and stuff. I ended up going with the Prints of Love Charm bangle. 20% of the sales of this particular bangle go to the ACPCA with a minimum ...

Flying my Nerd Flag in Wedges

This past weekend, I got an awesome opportunity to promote my show at a convention. Columbia College Chicago does their own version of C2E2 and brought us on board to talk about Badfic Love! The panel was great, we got asked some interesting questions, and generically got to share this great show! And of course, it being spring and all, I used the opportunity to break out a pair of wedges for the occasion. Hope everyone had a great weekend! ...

Striped Skirt & Spring Flowers

Spring has officially arrived in Chicago enough that flowers are being planted in the beds around downtown. Color me excited! I love all the bright pops of color amid a sea of grey and concrete. It’s a super refreshing change. I found a code for a free Julep Maven Bridal Box not too long ago and am finally getting to trying out all the awesome colors I received. Look out for a review of the colors coming up soon! I don’t claim to ...

Denim and a Pattern

I somehow magically managed to survive tech week! My show is open and on its feet and I couldn’t be happier. This is always my favorite part of the process- the run of the show. Rehearsals are fun and all and it’s a great time to get to know everyone but the run of the show is when I feel like I really get to connect with my cast. It’s also when I’m more in my element. Working as a stagehand for so long, I’m so ...

Easter Dress

I totally get why everyone loves pastels and light floral patterns and stuff for easter but I’m all about bold colors and patterns. So I pulled this Francesca’s dress out of my closet for the celebrations today. It’s from two years ago but continues to be a favorite of mine. Paired with this H&M denim jacket and an Aldo necklace, and we’re all set for a picnic on the beach! Everyone was looking extra cute today. ...

Spring! Florals and Color in the Office

Spring has really and truly officially arrived in Chicago. And by that I mean today is properly rained instead of snowing. And construction vehicles are out in full force. My favorite joke about Chicago weather is that we have four seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Construction. We’re finally moving out of Still Winter and into Construction which means it’s going to rain a lot but not be cold anymore! Alas, with ...

Window Pane Blouse

Flash sales are a dangerous thing for me. Ann Taylor Loft had one this past weekend and I caved and got this blouse (It’s still on sale!). It is hands down the best purchase I have made in a long time. It’s lightweight, classic with a twist, and matches so much in my wardrobe. I’m thinking of doing a series of posts styling it three different ways. Thoughts?   Top (on sale!) | Bag | Shoes | Necklace
