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 ...

Wedding Day | The Wedding

Today’s the final installment from our wedding day. The Wedding. And all of the photos that inevitably come after that. Every familial combination you can think of, all the friends, bridal party combinations, etc. EVERYTHING. The very definition of non-traditional We wrote our own ceremony [read: Sarah wrote it and I said “yeah, cool!”] and threw so many traditions out the window. Zoe was our ring dog, we had mixed gender ...

Vintage Stripes in Spring

Okay so calling this dress “vintage” might be a bit of a stretch. I don’t actually know how old it is. It’s from a friend’s closet. One of those “I think you’ll like this and I’m not wearing it anymore” kind of dresses. Which can sometimes make some of the best looks. Like this one right here! Another way to rock my favorite Sam Edelman flats in a whole different way. This look is much ...

Wedding Day | The Photos

You’ve seen the getting ready pictures. Now enjoy the proper photos. We did our photos before the ceremony so we could properly enjoy our own cocktail hour. Best. Idea. Ever. I was handed a whiskey sour as soon as we finished the ceremony and was able to enjoy it! So if you’re able to do photos between getting ready and ceremony, I HIGHLY recommend it. Nobody will be surprised to see that we included the dogs in our shoot. Zoe ...

Satin is the New Velvet | Spring Style

Velvet had its run this past fall and winter as the trending fabric. But now it’s spring and, once Chicago starts acting like it, I’m breaking out satin as my signature spring style fabric. These flats by Sam Edelman are easily the best shoe investment I’ve made in a while. They’re a great color [and come in tons more!], they lace up super comfortably, and they make such a statement with their cut. Basically, ...

Wedding Day | Getting Ready

Stile.Foto.WED It’s been nearly 6 months and I haven’t shared my wedding stuff yet. Partly, I’ve been decompressing from what was a stunning, emotional, and HUGE day. Partly, I’ve been letting family and friends get to photos and stuff first. Partly, I just don’t quite know how to fit everything into a blog post. So I decided to go with three. And partly, it’s honestly something I’m still processing. ...

Beautiful Jumpsuit

If you’re subscribed to my email list, you’ll know that I’ve been super struggling with my body image lately. I haven’t felt pretty or confident or any of those other words people so often use. I’ve always struggled with these things. Lately, though, the struggle has been more difficult than usual. Sometimes it takes as little as one bad photo to set the whole balance off. Being a blogger, I can’t even ...
