Beach Cover-Ups That Won’t Make You Look Like A Grandma

  With the lakefront right at our front door in Chicago, I have a feeling leisurely Saturdays and Sundays will be spent in the sand playing paddle ball and reading magazines with our toes in the water. When you need to cover up a little more, ditch the over sized t-shirt you’ve had since 6th grade and go for something a little bit more…

Sorry For Partying

When I think of a graphic t-shirt, the uncomfortable, ill fitting, free shirts I got as a college freshman immediately enter my mind. I never thought I would be caught happily wearing a graphic T in public. Graphic t-shirts are having a major moment right now. Easy to throw on and comfortable, they are the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. Witty sayings, city…

FOUND: The Perfect Swimsuit for $30

  While I am not usually a fan of large chain stores due to quality, one thing that I like to stock up on is swimsuits from H&M.

The Classic Wrap Dress & Kicks Part II

  Yesterday we talked about my love of sportswear and the Nike Air Max Thea.  Personally, sneakers have become an essential part of my wardrobe right up there with a pea-coat, well cut jeans, etc. A recent staple that I now consider an essential? A classic wrap dress. It will never go out of style, is appropriate for any event, and is universally flattering….

The Bean, A Gold Trench, and Kicks. Part I

    A few posts back, I discussed trying to find my “thing.” Back in April, I was asked by Marie Claire what I thought my signature look would be. This was incredibly challenging to answer considering that my look changes day to day depending on how I feel that morning. One day you can catch me whizzing through the city in a sundress,…

You. Me. Madewell. May 1st.

  If you already have plans Thursday, May 1st, you should probably clear your schedule. If you don’t? Now you do. Why?   I’m hosting a party at Madewell on Rush st. So come hangout with me, sip, snack…and best of all, shop. The new Madewell campaigns feature Erin Wasson with the theme Cool. Sexy. Tomboy. Sounds ideal to me, right? I’ll be styling…

Best Spring Oxfords

  It’s not hard to update your wardrobe for Spring. A simple, light weight, oxford with jeans and boat shoes is a classic look that will never fail you, day or night. There is never an excuse for leaving your apartment in a sloppy outfit. Putting on nice shirt and jeans is just as easy as throwing on sweatpants and a t-shirt, right? It…
