Simply Stylist | Do What You Love, Part 2

“She knows who she is.” Part two of Simply Stylist! Read Part 1 here. The above quote is the best description of someone’s Instagram account I have ever heard. Joey Maalouf’s description of Jacey Duprie, to be specific. And they make my favorite takeaway from the entire conference: just be you! I like to think I do that anyway but it was nice to have that reminder. As promised, outfit details from the day below. I ...

Simply Stylist | Do What You Love, Part 1

Do What You Love “Simply Stylist is a way for like-minded women to come together, learn from one another, get inspired and to network. It’s a place where we showcase the true trendsetters and uplift fashion and beauty tastemakers of the future.” -Sarah Boyd Let me break that down into some different terms. This is an organization that gives us a place to share what we’re doing with other people who will not only ...

Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun

I am super pale. Like, glow in the dark level of pale. Which I don’t mind most of the time. Like winter (which is most of the time in Chicago). But then summer rolls around and I’m just not a fan. I am a firm believer that it shouldn’t matter what color your skin is, as long as you are happy in it. And, frankly, being a little bronzed in the summer is exactly what makes me happy! So I hit the market looking for a sunless ...

Un-Lobster Rolls

Every single time summer rolls around, I start to crave super summery foods. To the point where nothing else will do. If it’s not bright and fresh or full of summery flavors, I really don’t want to eat it. So I’ve taken things into my own hands here. I present, vegan lobster rolls! …served on hamburger buns because that was all we had and I was, honestly, way too lazy to go to the store. You’ll need: 1 package ...

Business Casual

It feels like everything has been non-stop work lately. Putting together outfits is fun but when I can’t have a fun pair of shorts or some particularly distressed jeans in my life, I tend to get disheartened pretty quickly. There’s only so much fun I can have with slacks before I am just ready for sweatpants. Yesterday, though, I woke up and made a decision to make business casual fun. Take the dress code for my workplace and ...

Taco Night!

Tacos are the actual easiest and most delicious food ever. If you do them right. None of that cheese and tomato and lettuce stuff. These tacos, not counting marinade time, took approximately 10 minutes to put together. They’re vegan, they’re healthy, they’re fresh, and they’re delicious. I really don’t know what else to say about them. Tacos are one of my favorite week night meals because of how insanely easy ...

The Perfect Distressed Denim #skinny_trf

I feel like from the moment you begin blogging, you’re almost required to own a pair of perfectly distressed denim. Whether boyfriend fit or skinny, a pair needs to find its way into your closet at some point. After blogging for 9+ months, I have finally found said perfect pair of jeans at Zara. It was literally love at first sight. I turned around, saw them sitting there on the rack, and all but screamed with joy. First pair I ...

Jumpsuit!

I finally did it! I finally actively looked for and found a jumpsuit. I’ve been waffling on how I feel about them for months. They look good on others but would they look good on me? What do I wear it with? How the hell do I style this thing? I have super long legs and a super long torso, what do I do?! Well, I had an event to attend (ROOF Runway with Glossed and Found and Topshop), nothing new to wear, and a might need to find ...

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 ...

Indie Cafe, Chicago

Warm weather in Chicago means it’s outdoor dining season. Mind, it takes us until late May/early June to get there. But we eventually do and then everybody is outside all the time. Going anywhere to eat, the question “do you want to sit outside or inside?” is always “outside.” So when Sarah and I had a much needed date night and we ended up at Indie Cafe on Broadway, of course we said yes! dining al  fresco is ...
