You remember yesterday’s post featuring my ombre, linen dress by Tommy Bahama, right? Well, today’s post is all about styling my man. He’s a cutie so I thought I’d treat him to something special for Father’s Day. Incidentally, he, too wore his outfit for our date night. We were a walking Tommy Bahama advertisement!
I’m partnering with Tommy Bahama on the new opening of their Michigan + Erie Flagship Store and what you see is the result of a very fun shopping spree with my nuggets. Luxury linen is what I will be wearing all season long. And you will be, too once you attend the opening event that I am co-hosting with several other Chicago bloggers. (invite at the end of this post!)
His linen shirt was a big win. I love the look of linen shirts on guys once warm weather hits. With over 17 colors, you’re sure to find something to compliment every dude’s skin tone. It was a tough choice but ultimately I wanted to get away from dark colors and lighten him up a bit. I also knew I was not getting away with lime green so “bright crème” it is!
His chinos fit amazing. Being that we are a vertically challenged family, it’s hard to find the right inseam that doesn’t come with a $20-$30 alteration expense. These neutral chinos come in nine colors and the quality is amazing.
Such a stud! I could have scooped up an armful of assorted items to freshen up his wardrobe including slub knit polo shorts, great chino shorts, printed swim trunks and more. Definitely check out the modern edge that Tommy Bahama has adopted these days. I promise…your man will thank you!
Happy Thursday and please join me on 7/1 at the Tommy Bahama Flagship Store on Michigan Ave (at Erie) on Wednesday 7/1 from 6 to 8pm! The invite is attached. RSVP here!
I am mourning the loss of another weekend. I feel like October is flying by so quickly. It's insane. From here on out we are going to try and cram as much pumpkin into our schedule as possible. I will admit...the weather has been hovering at this perfect 70ish mark which makes outfit prepping kinda fun still. Not quite in layers but chilly at night.
I'm still feeling the black but this time with a pop of PINK! My all time favorite color. My girls ask me weekly what my favorite color is and every week I tell them the same response - PINK, ALWAYS PINK! They must be really bored with dear old mom.
It's been a dark week already. Hard to lift the cobwebs. I'm on a mission to find some goodness in this world. Luckily that commodity is free with the assistance of two little girls. The best things in life ARE free, indeed.
One of my top five favorite things about Fall has got to be the ability to wear denim cutoffs with long sleeved tops. I couldn't tell you why that is but it's a thing and it's a small fleeting moment before our legs completely freeze over here in Chicago.
What could be better than a dress made out of sweatshirt material? Don't answer that! I realize this trend might not be for everyone but shoot guys, I was ultra comfortable running around the city in this little diddy. Fashion tip: You have to belt this dress or it will look like a giant potato sack which is no bueno. I linked a few inexpensive options below but you can find a wide belt just about anywhere these days. Belting everything is SO of the moment again.
I write this post as I browse pink sneakers online. I have no idea how I end up in these rabbit holes. I look at today's outfit post and I do admire a good heel but I dare say...I think I am becoming a sneaker head! Heels offer such a beautiful silhouette but there are so manyyyyyy sneaker options. Is that the mom in me coming out? I think so.
Sooooo...this top. Yeah, I wear it a lot. Whatever happened to the baby doll trend? I miss it. In other news, I just listened to a podcast with Courtney Love. Like whoa. She was an amazing interview. I highly recommend Girl Boss Radio if you like podcasts.
Welcome to V.2 of this bad ass mini skirt. My last post was rocker chic but today is all about the ladylike details. And who doesn't love a good ruffle? #amiright? This was another one of those unexpected pairings because I didn't try this outfit on before we shot it. I just knew two things: 1. I loved the skirt and 2. I am a sucker for stripes and ruffles. Voíla! An outfit is born!
This week I will be showing you two ways to style this AMAZING studded skirt for Fall. At $50, I'm going to make a strong case for your purchase. It's more versatile than you think but you need to remember a few tips:
I've had this top for awhile and had to get some slight alterations. Read: I do not have a chest at ALL! Now that it fits, I truly love it. You guys, it's $11. No joke.
It looks super chic and date night ready with a pair of liquid leggings or leather pants and equally perfect with your favorite blue jeans. I wore this for a weekend city lunch because the spirit moved me but I knew I was going to be with kids.
