Spring Time Apparel

 

Dress: Ellie Kai // Shoes: Target!! (Buy one get one 50% off!) // Purse: Sarah Jessica Parker

It’s Monday and Spring is (actually) HERE. We are slowly learning what sunshine is in Chicago and I love it. Spring time in Chicago is the best with colorful tulips on Michigan Avenue, strolls on the river walk, bright colors and spring dresses. I have been dying to wear my red sandals out and about and not only are they comfortable, but they come in so many different colors! The Who What Wear line at Target is coming in clutch with its shoe collection. I’m in love with my Crochet Knit Dress by Ellie Kai because it is so comfy and can be dressed up or down! It’s the perfect dress for a Sunday Stroll, day time brunch, (did someone say Easter?!), or even for a Hamptons party (thank you Al for hosting!) If you haven’t heard of Ellie Kai before, make sure to check them out! This made to order clothing line has so many different styles, patterns, and fits to choose from. Not to mention the brand prides itself in making its clothing in an ethical way, in hopes to eliminate waste. The company also donates to organizations that focuses on bettering education for women and girls. Love me some Ellie Kai.

You can never go wrong with a white dress and a pop of color for a day in the sunshine. Can’t wit for more spring fashion inspiration. Let’s just hope this sunshine in Chicago is here to stay for awhile!

XO.

4 Days Until Christmas: Finding The Perfect Christmas Outfit

White Christmas Outfit

Now I noticed after taking a second look at my closet, that I am partial to black, grey, and white and I need a little bit more of pa-zazz *insert jazz hands here* when it comes to my wardrobe color ensemble. Being home in California for the week, it is my new mission to get some bright colors to get me through this dreary winter as the  worst is yet to come. White and grey colors are always a great color though to wear for special occasions, and since I’ll be in California for Christmas, why not bring my own winter wonderland home with me?! I loved the Gossip Girl Blair Waldorf feel I got with the ruffles around the neckline of this sweater dress, and it’s still comfortable and classy. I wore black tights and my thigh high boots to give it a little more edge, and of course a headband for when I am outside and it is cold!

What color are you planning on wearing for Christmas?! I have recently become a huge fan of the dresses and sweaters at Chichwish.com and Forever 21 has so many simple V-neck sweaters in  different colors I want one of each! To me, the outfit above screams Blair Waldorf painting the town red on Christmas Day, and I low key love it. If weather permits and I won’t overheat, I am definitely going to show off this dress and be festive at minimum! Happy Holidays.

XO.

FOUND: Shay Mitchell’s White Set From The Teen Choice Awards

 

Lately, Shay Mitchell can do no wrong in our eyes. She has nailed every beauty look she’s tried out, puts together super sunny so-cal inspired outfits, and launched a fun loving lifestyle blog.

Shay killed it at the Teen Choice Awards in an all white, lacy, two-piece set. We found her exact look, which is from Misha Collection. Surprisingly, the outfit won’t break the bank at $299.95.
