Shopping and lunch at Siena Tavern in Chicago. // 8.26.14
Top: Leith from Nordstrom; Shorts: Akira Chicago; Bracelets: Nordstrom BP & TopShop; Sandals: Sam Edelman.
Lunching and shopping on Michigan Avenue called for a laid back, breezy summer look. This tank and these lightweight shorts from Akira were perfect. My favorite part of this outfit were the new bracelets I wore from TopShop and Nordstrom BP. I’m obsessed with light, but colorful dainty jewelry.
Sunset on Lake Michigan. // 8.23.14
Dress: Blu Moon; Bracelets: TopShop; Sandals in hand: Tory Burch.
On a recent trip up to a lake house in Michigan, the bf and I took in the sunset with some champagne, making for a perfect evening. I wore a fall-toned sundress by Blu Moon from Planet Blue. It’s one of my favorites and great for an evening on the beach.
Date night with the bf. // 8.15.14
Sweater: H&M; Shorts: Juicy Couture; Bag: Badgley Mischka; Shoes: Louboutin.
I am a big fan of gold. Anything gold. So naturally when I found these shorts at Juicy Couture (which is no longer there, sniff) in Beverly Hills a few months back, I just had to have them. They are actually running shorts, but I knew with a few key accessories and some simple black touches I could turn them into a cute outfit for a night out on the town.
Afternoon tea at the Peninsula Hotel Chicago. // 8.13.14
Dress: Madewell; Sunglasses: Ray-Ban; Sandals: Sam Edelman; Bag: Henri Bendel; Bracelet: Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Afternoon tea at the Peninsula is something my mom and I have been doing for years. For this outing, I decided to wear a bright blue dress by Madewell — perfect for an afternoon of tea and pastries.
