Kinda Like Kate

Let me start out with a warning: I will be wearing A LOT of green this fall. I’m obsessed with wearing green! My eyes are kind of camouflage in the fact that they turn from blue to green depending on my clothing. I don’t really like it when they look blue, hence why I love wearing green! Makes sense, right?!

Alright, back to regular programming. I wore this outfit to work then out to Cafe Ba Ba Reeba in Lincoln Park for dinner and sangria! (Food and drinks were delish and at a great price–highly recommended!) I wore this top with black pants because of work, but I can’t wait to style it with jeans and some fun accessories for a more casual, spruced-up look this fall!

HOW FUN IS THIS DOOR? I seriously want to move to this apartment because of the hot pink door. That, and I love the Armitage area of Lincoln Park. We were wandering around Halsted before dinner when we found the doorstep. I thought it would a great pop with the green. The pink+green+polka dots combo reminds me of Kate Spade, even though its the wrong shade of green. I <3 Kate Spade. 🙂

    Hi There! I am stopping by from Real Girl Glam and love Amber’s style! How did I miss your blog?? I live in Chicago as well, downtown actually and Cafe Baba Reeba is also one of my favorite restaurants! I love the polka dot top and that outfit was perfect for yesterday’s tail end of summer weather!
