Spring Time Sippin’ in Chicago

Spring time is HERE and you know what that means?! Floral everything, flow-y tops and rooftop season is upon us! When it hits even 60 degrees in Chicago, it’s sandal season with no jackets sipping on Moscow mules. For tourists or locals alike, I always love going to Cindy’s Rooftop on top of the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. It is half indoor and outdoor with…

Downtown Chic

Sweater: Nordstrom (Similar here) // Jeans: Topshop @ Nordstrom // Boots: Aldo Hair Products: Moroccan Oil and Blowout Sealing Serum Shampoo: Fekkai // Conditioner: Fekkai I have been meaning to channel my inner tourist and share some images that really capture the epitome of Chicago. I wanted to live here for a reason, right? One of the most iconic pictures in Chicago is the infamous…

Green for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago is always an event: you see the river dyed green, you eat lots of corned beef and cabbage, drink green beer, and bar hop all around the city. One of my favorite things about St. Patty’s Day is the people watching! Oh are the outfits fun. I wanted to share a ‘street chic’ St. Patrick’s Day outfit I’ll be…

Travel Guide: New York City

As I mentioned in my earlier post, there is something about New York that appeals to me in a way that I find too hard to explain sometimes. I wanted to share a few of my New York go-tos, which I would highly recommend for you to try too! Day One Hotel Chantelle Our first stop after a lovely tapas style dinner at Beauty…

Travel Guide: A Day in Brooklyn

I am so excited to share my travel guide while I was in New York City. One of the many hot spots I checked out was Brooklyn and I was pleasantly surprised during my time there. I always thought of Brooklyn as a beaten up part of New York City- almost a place where people don’t want to be associated with. I was very much so…

The Perfect Brunch in Chicago

Brunch in Chicago is more than just your average pancake house. In Chicago, it’s an activity or a full blown experience. 3 Arts Club Cafe at Restoration Hardware is hands down one of the most classy, delicious, and all around beautiful brunch experiences in the city. You might know Restoration Hardware as an upscale furniture store but here, it is more. Deeply embedded within the…

Valentine’s Day Outfit

    Dress: Anthropologie (Another favorite here and here!) // Jacket: Helmut Lang (similar here and here!)// Purse: DSW // Heels: Vince Camuto There is no shame in wearing red or pink for Valentine’s Day. I loved pairing this corset style strapless dress from Anthropologie with a black leather jacket and a pointed heel to give it a little edge. After you get ready for…

P.S. I Love JORD

  Loved partnering with JORD Watches. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I always love finding the perfect gift for special occasions, especially for Valentine’s Day. For friends who are my forever Valentine’s, I love getting the cheesy Valentine’s Day cards from the nearest drug store and writing a sweet little something! They chuckle, but know it’s from the heart.   But then there is…

Buried in Berry

Berry shades have seemed to really pop this season and I love that it did (see what I did there?). Even in the summer I will still get OPI’s Miami Beet color because it is a classic and always looks good in my opinion.   I found this Veiled Pom Beanie at Nordstrom (it’s 50% off now!) and I love wearing it on extra drab…

Winter Street Style feat. Kenzo

  I was feeling a little fierce when I saw this cute sweater by Kenzo. What I love most about it, is that it’s not something Kenzo usually creates with its repeated pattern and more vibrant colors. Don’t get me wrong, Kenzo pieces are definitely for those looking to make a statement. I thought I would make it a little more street style with…
