My Five: Whitney Middleton Gruber

  Hi guys! After a long, dreary winter, I thought it would be great to do some exploring. Personally, I love getting recommendations from my friends and fellow fashionistas, which is why I am starting this feature called My Five. My Five will show you what top tastemakers, fellow students, and Chicago locals love in this city. Where to shop, where to eat, what…

White Out

As I’ve discussed in recent posts, I love to eat. Brunch, lunch, dinner, you name it…exploring new restaurants is one of my hobbies. Sometimes, fashion and food go hand in hand. I cannot think of many things better than putting on a killer outfit and grabbing dinner with a group of my best girlfriends. One of the places I’ve been meaning to try? The…

Ladies Who Lunch

I love brunch, lunch, breakfast…whatever you want to call it. Why? Well, #1 is the fact that I get to eat something delicious and drink a mimosa. Tied with that, is picking out a cute outfit and chatting about the latest fashion talk with my close friends. I stumbled upon this Re:Named top and pencil skirt set. The lace paired with the light lilac…

Summer Sunnies: The Warby Parker Way

Summer is all about running around outside, laying on the beach, and the carefree look that goes along with that. These days have been on my brain while I have been stuck inside due to Chiberia. Another thing I’m looking forward to? Buying new sunglasses. I’ve been stalking sites recently for a fun, new, pair of sunnies for Spring Break in a few weeks,…

Jumpsuits are hands down, the…

Fur: The New Essential

While stalking all of the runway photos, street style photos, and Instagrams of the fashionistas in New York this past week, I noticed a few things, one of them being: fur is back. On the runways and on the streets, fur was seen in stoles, hats, scarves, and everything in between. You can get the look with Chicago based designer C/Fan. Designer Christina Fan…

OOTD

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending Snowball; a fabulous black tie charity event put on by The Junior Council. While I love dressing up, I do not like typical black tie garb, so I switched it up with a top and skirt combo, fun bag, and bright heels. Top: Alice & Olivia Skirt: Parker Bag: Sophia Webster Heels: Jimmy Choo
