They don't call it the Windy City for nothing! Actually, the wind, as in the weather, has nothing to do with our beloved name but that's a different story for a different day! Let's talk about this dress! We are well into the infatuation phase. Yup, we move fast!
I am obsessed with the bright pop of neon and the deep V back. It's everything I could want in a summer dress and more! I suppose this would make me a very simply human being but hey, so be it! At least it's not another off-the-shoulder, right?
The second best part of this dress? It makes you look like a bronzed goddess which I will happily take any given day. The sun and I are not friends...I wish this weren't the case but life goes on.
These plaid dandy's are a Faryl Robin favorite from last summer. I was so happy to break them out again. They remind me of fruit loops!
I hope you guys have some amazing plans on the books for this holiday weekend! I know I've been running like a chicken this week which explains the timing of this post but I couldn't leave it out! In a nutshell, I woke up @ 4:30am and drove into the city for an entertainment segment followed by a client photo shoot followed by conference calls and a very special mermaid shoot which I will share with you later! So much to be grateful for but for now, I'll take a big glass of pinot noir tonight.
Cheers babes! Happy America Day! Shop my outfit below:
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!
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.
