Sometimes you just need an outfit that’s quick, easy, and put-together. Maybe you overslept, maybe you feel totally uninspired by your closet, maybe you had a wardrobe malfunction when you were getting ready, maybe you had a late night the night before. Whatever the occasion may be, wearing all black is typically one of my go-to’s for these not-so-ideal situations.
Because we all love a good sale, I wanted to share Shopbop’s Tiered Sale Event with you! It starts today and runs through Saturday. Spend $250+ and save 15%, spend $500+ and save 20%, and spend $1,000+ and save 25%.
I’ve broken down my favorites into three categories… Budget Friendly Buys, Classics Worth the Investment, and Things to Splurge on This Spring!
Happy Monday! (And happy March!) It’s hard to believe that we’re already a few months into 2015, isn’t it? It definitely doesn’t feel like March considering we spent yesterday afternoon battling a snow storm, but hey, at least we are getting closer and closer to spring!
How was your weekend? I went on a little girls getaway that was super short, but oh-so-sweet. Julia, Lauren, and I drove to Newport, Rhode Island on Friday night to meet Jess, Loren, and Marissa for a quick winter weekend escape.
I am so happy for Grace and the launch of her new website! After 4+ years of blogging, I’m doing my first-ever custom site design this year (my current one is just a template) and I couldn’t be more excited. Hoping it will be live by June!
I always love hearing about workouts that really make a difference! I am really loyal to SoulCycle and hot yoga, but I’m in desperate need of adding a toning class to the mix. I took a few barre classes last spring (or maybe the spring before..) and saw results instantly. I need to get back into the groove of mixing those into my routine! Check out Liz’s post on The Dailey Method, a barre class in Chicago.
You know I’m a sucker for personalized stationery — So in love with this set and this set from Design Darling.
While today’s story definitely can’t beat the story from earlier this week, there’s obviously some sort of clusterf*ck involved because we’re dealing with me. 95% of the time, my life is 100% ruled by Murphy’s Law. (“60% of the time, it works every time…” #namethatmovie)
There’s nothing I love more than the crisp look of winter white jeans! Yesterday it felt like summer in the city (when in all actuality it was only 36 degrees (Fahrenheit)), so I put away the puffer and opted for a wool topper instead.
Three of my college besties are coming in town this weekend and I’m so excited to catch up and have a girls weekend! Much, much needed.
Getting dressed to go out in this frigid cold is always a challenge… You want to look cute, but you don’t want to freeze your butt off. (And just so we’re all on the same page — you definitely don’t want to be that girl that’s not wearing tights or a coat!)
Oh man, you guys. Shooting outfit photos has been a real b*tch lately. The struggle has been so real.
It was -10 degrees when we were snapping these pictures… A really great way to start the morning! Kind of like taking an ice bath, I would assume. Taking photos in windy conditions is my biggest pet peeve… My dresses, skirts, and tops blow around in the most unflattering of ways and my hair never cooperates. This icy -10 degree wind, though, was the most brutal I’ve ever felt and had me feeling like I was back in Chicago.. But maybe even worse!
It was one of those days where we got a whole heck of a lot more outtakes than useable photos.
Incorporating a bit of menswear flair into your wardrobe while maintaining your feminine style can be tricky, but it’s not impossible.
Boyfriend jeans are insanely comfortable and so easy to wear, but it’s essential to find your most flattering fit! While I do have a few pairs of very loose, tattered boyfriend jeans, they are reserved for the least stylish of occasions. (Moving day, for example.) When I want to sport a fashion-forward pair of boyfriend jeans for everyday wear, I like to wear a slimmer style to keep a polished appearance.
I found these slim-fit boyfriend jeans at Old Navy and I was absolutely smitten! Slightly distressed, a wear-with-everything wash, and that perfect loose-but-not-baggy fit. I’ll take two, please! (Especially at the $34 price point!)
When I’m styling boyfriend jeans, I’m all about the lengthy layers to elongate my look. For a workday outfit, I chose a long silk blouse, a hit-at-the-hip sweater, a pendant necklace, and heels to add some height. Casual Friday at it’s finest!
