Sunday afternoon at the ballet. // 10.26.14
Dress: Free People; Shoes: Louboutin.
If you live in Chicago, you know the past few days have been BEAUTIFUL! Like 70 degrees and sunny. I totally wouldn’t mind all of fall/winter being like this. I went to the ballet Sunday afternoon, and, since it was so nice out, wore this floral dress from Free People. Both the muted color and the long sleeves made it perfect for fall. And how about those buttons on the back and sleeves?!
Dinner at Le Bouchon Chicago. // 9.13.14
Sweatshirt: Wildfox; Shorts: H&M; Shoes: Steve Madden; Bracelet: H&M.
Graphic t’s are everywhere right now. I’m not a huge fan of the trend, but I do love Wildfox quite a bit. So, I decided to dress up the trend by pairing this sweatshirt with leather shorts for a little edge and these new Steve Madden pumps that kick ass.
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.
Shopping in Wicker Park. // 7.6.14
Dress: Urban Outfitters; Bag: Badgley Mischka; Sandals: Steve Madden; Sunglasses: Ray-Ban.
In my opinion, the sundress is the summer staple every girl should have in her closet. But choosing the right one can be tricky. For me, lighter and breezier, the better. Summer ease with a little flounce. A tiny bit of lace like this one from Urban Outfitters adds a little “girlie” accent.
