An Afternoon of Bridal Luxury

Sunday may have dawned grey and gloomy but with the promise of champagne, beautiful tables, and even more beautiful bridal gowns, my thoughts were sunny and excited. The Afternoon of Bridal Luxury is an annual bridal walk around the shops near the Mag Mile here in Chicago that touches on bakeries, dresses, venues, tablescapes. You’re handed a map and a bag and a mimosa and sent on your way. The walk included places like Kate Spade, ...

Transitioning

Fall is such an awesome transitional period. Beyond having literally the best fashion of the entire year AND the best fashion month, the weather is turning, we get this gorgeous show of colors, and we start getting cozy for the winter ahead. While I despise winter with a firey passion, I love fall (like every other Basic out there. Whoops). I love scarves and hot apple cider, crunchy leaves, chunky sweaters, and so much more. Heck, last ...

Sunday Librarian

“If truth is beauty, how come no one has their hair done in the library?” -Lily Tomlin Getting my lazy bum out of bed and to work on a Sunday can be a trial. But with the help of a cute outfit (and some coffee), being a Sunday Librarian is a much easier feat to tackle. This is totally another great way to use the separate pieces from the two piece set I wore to the Be Buddha Jewelry Launch Party. The skirt is just perfect for ...

Found Objects

I love a good found object, especially when it lends itself to a good outfit shoot. I’d been planning some sort of sleek all-black “feel like a bad-ass” outfit for a while now. And then this sofa ended up in the alley behind our building. Hello, photo shoot. So Sarah and I got all ready to go, ventured downstairs, and had a little fun. There was lots of “ooh, try this!” “now what about that?” ...

Closets

  Sunday evenings are always a fun night to go out to eat for me. Not a lot of people are out, restaurants are usually slightly empty, and it’s a great way to regroup and relax before the start of a new week. The tradition harkens back to my childhood a little. Every Sunday night, my grandparents, parents, and me would go out to dinner. We had a list of old favorites and occasionally went to try new places. It let us catch up with ...

Be Buddha Launch Outfit

You read about the launch party for Be Buddha Jewelry on Monday. Here’s the details from my outfit for the day. The Clothes This amazing two-piece set is a Forever 21 find. I was super surprised to find it but seriously pleased! This is the first and only crop top I’ve ever owned/tried and I’m actually really shocked at how much I love it. I would totally pair it with some other pieces in my wardrobe (read: my high-waisted ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
