Today's post is short and sweet on words. I'm sharing my favorite Fall jewelry pieces. There's one trend I'm noticing big time for the new season...textured jewelry. Think stonework, gold, hammered metals, wire and more.
Normally not much of a jewelry shopper...I couldn't help but window shop. Gimme all the layered necklaces! Happy shopping! xo
I've had this crochet dress for several years and never shot in it. Crazy, I know. Literally the 8th Wonder! I kid. In all honesty, it was relatively inexpensive from the ever-popular ASOS website. I love it for two reasons. I can dress it up as shown above AND I can pair it with a pair of combat boots for a totally different look. Just add a leather jacket!
Weekends are for sun and smiles. And that's just what we did! I guess you could say this is a week of stylish photography with my littles. Every once in a while they like to make a cameo and I am happy to oblige.
Olivia is such a ray of sunshine. I think you can see it in these photos. This year has been such a big year for her growth. She's one of the funniest and brightest kindergartners I know. Naturally. Being her mom is one of the most rewarding jobs of all time. I wish I could take credit for her personality but I think Livie just has all sorts of goodness in her. She is caring and protective of her sister. She adores her father. She is thoughtful and makes little gifts for her grandparents. She works hard on her school work and she is a gifted little artist. I love seeing her creativity blossom.
I've always had the belief that sequins shouldn't be reserved for New Year's only. That seems like a waste of beauty. I believe there is a place for everyday sequins. After all, it has anything and everything to do with your attitude when you wear them. Today's dress is no exception. I can and will find many occasions to wear this lil number. It's even more stunning in person.
We're entering the season of love. Naturally I am gravitating towards winter maxi dresses and anything faux fur. Tis the season!
All right. Black Friday is around the corner. It's time to get serious. We all know the struggle. It's hot in the stores, cold outside and you're gonna get pushed around like a fat kid in a donut shop. What do you wear? I'll tell you...this outfit. It's ventilated and the jacket is not required.
PS / you need stretchy denim post turkey time. Let's be honest.
Chicago is experiencing a Fall unlike any other. Perfectly brisk mornings and cool nights. I even heard that we might have some frost in the evening. This is the quintessential Chicago that I know and love. Bring on the leaves!
And so it begins...school buses, back packs, new teachers and rainy mornings. I quite love the start of a new school year but not for the obvious reasons. I'm a huge fan of a new season. That's why we stay in the Midwest. No one can argue with a Chicago Fall because it's just about the perfect temp and the most stunning colors you've ever experienced.
The event calendar is heating up and I've got 5 great options to keep your closet on point and on budget. How's that for a Wednesday? And no, I cannot get enough dresses or color for that matter. What can I say? You know what you signed up for when you started reading this blog...ALL THE COLOR!
Mother’s Day has always brought everyone together to celebrate two very special women: my mother and my grandmother. It was our ritual to dine at a local, french bistro on decadent eggs benedict with copious amounts of mimosas. We all knew the couch and sweat pants were awaiting at home!
