A post! I'm sorry guys...I just could.not.get.it.together yesterday. So many big deliverables due this week it was insane. BUT! Today I'm sharing a favorite casual look that my husband shot this past weekend. His idea on the destination and I l-l-l-l-ove it!
Gimme an old theater and I'll raise with you with a whole lot of attitude!
P/S I love tassels. And tassels on shirts! (which happen to come in three colors!)
I'm sad that I can't share the exact link to my embellished sandals because they were one of my favorite purchases this summer. They're a great way to dress up a casual look when you just can't make the effort...a la brunch in this case. I love this pair, too!
This pair is under $40 and perfectly neutral, too! I wish sandal season would never leave us. (Read: desperately hanging onto summer in Chicago)
What's your go-to brunch look? We tried out a new spot: Bryn Mawr Breakfast Club. It was delicious complete with savory benedict dishes, pancakes and excellent skillets. Highly recommended because, of course, copious amounts of coffee is always a welcome addition to any Sunday!
Be sure to check out my Instagram giveaway today, too!

It's safe to say that I have gotten my ROI out of this dress. At a whopping $26, I've worn it for countless meetings, Thanksgiving and now this shoot. Sure, I should be wearing tights given that it's December in Chicago but we were indoors. Shooting outside, as I've gotten older, has become less and less attractive to me. Bah!
I don't know a singular woman who doesn't love a good deal. Myself included. This dress is under $50 and on mega sale due to the impending holidays. I think it would be equally cute with a pair of black tights and mary janes...in the summer, with espadrilles or platforms.
I've always been somewhat of a skeptic regarding Cyber Week. Or perhaps just not ready to get my holly jolly on. I would shop sporadically all month and go at my own pace. I feel differently this year. Honestly, I think it's because I ready to celebrate the end of a very difficult year. The ups and downs were tremendous so holiday shopping and the holiday spirit seem like something I can rally around.
The black and white phase continues. It's just SO easy to get dressed. I know you all discovered this before me so please forgive. This was yesterday's shoot outfit for a day of schlepping without sacrificing chic.
Monday...we meet again! Hi friends! Back at it again after a busy weekend. I think we are all feeling the same, right? It was full but it was so great. Mom + Dad got a little date night fun in and we pretty much laid around all Sunday. Okay, that was me. I laid around all Saturday. #truth
When you look at me, you probably thing "DANGER." I know. I totally get it. Suburban mom in black. Watch out!
In all honesty, I love an all black ensembles. It's the young girl longing to be a New Yorker in me that never quite dissolved. Coulda, shoulda, woulda right? It's cool.
Greetings! Long time no write or at least it feels like it. Are you guys entering Thanksgiving mode? I feel like we just stored all the pumpkin goodies and I am already seeing Christmas commercials. Heaven help me!
This is a Friday dress. No muss, no fuss. And velvet is right on trend at the moment. Who knew?
No, I actually totally knew and have been hesitant to jump back onto the velvet train, however, when I saw this dress - it was a non-starter.
Attending a college football game 17 years after the fact is a completely different experience. Dare I say - I felt old but I was really glad to be through all the trials and tribulations of my 20's.
My husband and I attended the Iowa/Northwestern game with friends this past weekend and I joked that this was my tailgating attire. It may not have been school gear but I did represent in t-shirt colors!
There's something about a crisp, cold morning that I really love. I think it makes coffee taste that much better. Just a theory I have. By noon, the sun has burned off and what you get is the perfect Fall day that does not necessitate a jacket. My favorite!
