Sun & Sand

I've been quiet on the blog lately because I've been off on a beach vacation. We headed to the sunny beaches of Mexico for one of my friends weddings. It was wonderful to catch up with everyone and get a little sun during the chilly Chicago winter. I must say, I'm really good at vacation.

Black on Black


I have a lot of black in my closet, probably too much. I just love a simple all black outfit, it creates a blank canvas to do fun makeup and pile on some accessories. I wore this to Sunday brunch to celebrate my mom's birthday. We had a fabulous time as always!

This spring is going to be all about colored jeans. I'm talking every color of the rainbow. These jeans are a perfect pick for getting in on this trend but not breaking the budget.

Spring Fling

I like to think spring is right around the corner and with all this unsually warm weather it makes it a little more believeable. All the stores are starting to put out their spring collections and I'm falling in love with so many things! I was doing my usual online browsing and saw this amazing dress! Great style, color and price - its a style me cheaply must have!
