Summer Black

I have a serious problem with always wearing black. It might have started from living in NYC for over 4 years... Even in the summer I try and find ways to wear it head to toe. Keeping it light and airy with different fabrics is a sure way to not look goth. It's going to hit 100 in Chicago today, hot flash!

Love my new leopard romper! It's debut was this past weekend for a birthday party. It's super lightweight and flowy, which is a must have for a warm summer night. It's also going to be perfect with flats for a brunch date. This romper has a lot of fun in its future!

Leopard Love

I've decided my summer wardrobe needs some new friends. I found this gem on ASOS, in the sale section of course. I love me some animal print!

Summer Wedding

Summer wedding season has begun. This past weekend I attended a family wedding near Chicago. It's always so much fun getting all dressed up and spending time with family.

I did have a mini outfit crisis the day before the wedding. So I hit up my local Express and they saved the day! It's the perfect little black dress!
