Golden


My usually daily outfit is a head to toe black look. I think it comes from living in NYC for nearly 5 years. I love this top I just bought, I adore the gold scarf print with sheer sleeves, it pairs perfectly with mt go to black skinny jeans and will look equallay as fab tucked into a skirt. The gold-toe boots are a new purchase too, I've been waiting to pull them out. Just love the gold and black contrast and pointy toe.

Oxblood

The oxblood color is a huge trend this season. If you don't see yourself going full on commitment to this trend an easy way to add it in is with accessories. I saw these wedges while doing some online shopping. I love that they are wedges; so easy to run around Chicago for work and play. The bootie style will work great with leggings, dresses and cuffed denim. They are a must have for me and are equally great looking in person. They just arrived so I haven't had a chance to take them for a spin, but they will be hitting a sidewalk soon!

Statement Necklace

It's safe to say I am obsessed with this necklace. I can't stop thinking about it. I love the mix of the stones with the turquoise. It's a major statement piece that you can dress up or down. The sparkle factor, so many dreamy thoughts. It's from Anthropologie and it's equally as amazing in person, I stopped in yesterday to check it out. It's also made in the USA, love that.

Casual


 I had such a relaxing and low key weekend. I had dinner with friends, hit up the farmers market and bought my favorite Mcintosh apples (yum), took an afternoon nap and did Sunday brunch. I LOVE brunch, I especially love brunch when there are bottomless mimosas involved. I kept it casual with my new favorite shirt, comfortable pants and flats. There's always room for a little sparkle in every outfit so I threw on an old favorite.

Lips

Fall is here, it's official. I've been fighting the reality that I have to pull out sweaters, but this one makes is a little easier. It's lightweight which makes it perfect for this transitional fall weather and its also covered in an oversized lip pattern. I saw it earlier this summer and just had to have it. It's been sitting in my closet waiting to have its debut. I paired it with my current go to jeans, they are super comfortable and can be dressed up or down.

Latest Buys


How adorable is this shirt?! I found it while browsing my local Zara. I don't normally like a denim shirt but I couldn't resist this one due to the fabulous sleeves. Honestly, this shirt is even better in person.
