Sweet Home Chicago

ChicagoAtNight1
Sorry for the delay in posts but there have been some big changes going on in my life this past week! My boyfriend and I moved to Chicago, we packed up and got out just in time to beat Hurricane Irene!
 The past 4 years in NYC has been one of the best times of my life, I've made so many amazing memories and so many of my dreams came true, but I'm ready for a new chapter to begin and to be closer to home.
Style Me Cheaply has come to Chicago!

much love - Kelsey

Have a fabulous day!

Fall Trends

Fall is going to be here soon and that means its time to think about trends. 
Here are a few trends that are going to define this fall season.

The Collar Necklace
This is an easy update to your existing wardrobe. 
Think adding this on with a tank, blazer and jeans. Or, with any of the dresses you already have.

Glitter

I currently have a major obsession going on with glitter. Glitter nail polish, glitter makeup and glitter shoes. Pretty much, if it sparkles I'll love it. I've become borderline crazy for a pair of shoes, they aren't just any shoes my friends. They are the most amazing, magical pair of shoes I've ever seen! Now if only I had $900 to drop on them... I'm a size 9.5 if anyone wants to buy them for me :)

Glitter Ankle Boot by Miu Miu - $890.00 - Nordstrom

Since those are my lust shoes, I have to come back down to earth and figure out what I can swing with my Style Me Cheaply budget... behold, an equally fabulous pair of glitter kicks!

Faux

I'm starting to put together my must haves for the fall season. Currently at the top of my list is a faux leopard jacket. This one by Tulle is just fabulous! I love that it will look great during the day or night, depending how its styled.

Over the weekend my friends and I visited a few wineries on Long Island, NY. We did tastings, had a picnic with lots of cheese (YUM) and just enjoyed spending the day outside. I always love strolling through a winery and seeing the vines and grapes growing.

What I'm Lovin Lately...

A couple of my best friends from college came for a long weekend visit. We had a wonderful time catching up, exploring the big apple and going on a road trip to visit some Long Island wineries. Friends really do make my world go round!

Got The Blues

I have a couple final summer events coming up and of course I find that a reason to get something new. I found this dress at Lulus and I just adore it, the color is amazing and the unique hemline can show off some of my fabulous shoes. It's also the perfect blank canvas for some major accessorizing. Dress it up!

Missoni for Target

With the launch of the Missoni for Target collaboration getting close they have finally released some of the looks from the collab. Only a small amount of looks were released and there is everything from bikes to scarves and all in those gorgeous Missoni prints! The collection launches Sept. 13, it's already in my calendar.

Spikes

I'm not a loafer person, never have been. But these shoes just changed my mind. What better way to rock some loafers that with spikes and a little sparkle? These are a perfect go to flat for fall.

Top It Off

The fall season is going to be here before we know it. I've been enjoying my summer so much its hard for me to write about this but I have to find my inner fashion strength and push forward... to fall.
 So many of us are already thinking sweaters, scarves and boots but one of the must have accessories for this season is a major hat, think 70's ultra chic. The floppy hat is going to be seen everywhere and I would say get on this trend early, you can get a great deal now and hang onto it to wear when the first bit of chill hits the air.

What a View

These past few weeks I've had a lot of visitors, summer in NYC is one of the best times to visit. I always try and take them to my favorite rooftop, the Press Lounge at Ink 48. It has amazing views, a chill atmosphere and stellar drinks.
