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. And… uhh… you guys, it was [somehow] nominated for “Best local fashion blog or blogger” for Chicago Reader’s Best of Chicago 2017. WHAT IS THIS MAGIC?! This is the exact face I made: I seriously have no idea how I ...

See Sparks Fly with Entertainment Cruises Chicago

Memorial Day weekend has come and gone and oh boy was mine extra special. Thanks to my fellow blogger babe Allie of Allie’s Fashion Alley, I was lucky enough to be on the first Odyssey Fireworks Dinner Cruise of the summer season! We’re talking three course meal, strawberry champagne, dessert buffet, dance floor, and Navy Pier fireworks. All on a boat! Odyssey is one of the cruise lines from Entertainment Cruises Chicago. While ...

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 ...

Statement Sleeves and Blue Stripes, Spring Style

“You’re the most fashionable librarian I’ve ever met.” Actual quote from an actual person while out shopping the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale. Which, by the way, if stunning bags are your thing, get to a store or shop online right now! Got myself a gorgeous little quilted number that I’m not showing you guys quite yet but that I’m beyond excited about. It was an actual moment of “Hello, gorgeous! ...

Fashion for Rescue Dogs with The Rescue Runway

Fur the love of rescue dogs Recently, I was lucky enough to team up with Christine of The Rescue Runway to go hang out with some dogs at Anti-Cruelty and shoot some outfits with them. Yep, rescue dogs and fashion. Basically my dream come true. And that’s Christine’s entire blog concept! Helping rescue dogs find homes through fashion. It’s kind of amazing. I highly recommend checking her out ASAP. And in the meantime, check ...

Summertime Chi | Summer Style in Chicago

Sarah immediately requested I call this post “legs for days” when she saw my outfit choice. And I don’t blame her. Mini skirt + wedges? Yeah, that’s a legs for days kind of outfit. But this is so much more than that. This look is my nod to summer in Chicago (or as we lovingly call it, Summertime Chi), to the promise of long warm days, cool nights on rooftops with amazing people, and so many other different activities ...

BCBGMAXARIZA + Blogger Babes

With the sunshine in Chicago this weekend, my gal Caitlin and I made plans to head out to the lakefront to shoot. And, Chicago being the amazing city that it is, gave us that promised sunshine! With a windchill. Us bloggers, though, we brave a lot more than a slightly chilly day for the perfect photo. Let’s just say there was a ton of hot coffee and warm layers when I got home. But when you have an awesome blogger babe on your side and ...

Springtime in Chicago

Lately, I’ve been consuming all things spring. From springy music that puts a little pep in my step to the fresh flowers at the grocery store. Which, obviously, includes spring fashion. And, oh boy, I’ve got tons of stuff coming up for you guys. Keep an eye out for your Thursday morning posts because the spring style I’ve got going on it killer. This dress in particular isn’t actually that springy. Black isn’t a ...
