Before I headed out  for vacation, I took a not so quick trip to the Chicago Auto Show. Seriously, hanging in fancy cars is super fun. Side note, I’m on vacation, so I apologize for the slowness in posting and responding! I’ll be back on track next week!

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) Brown and black, readers. I used to be on the fence about this, but I’ve really moved past it. I strongly believe that you can wear brown with black! Especially with so much fashion “clashing” these days, I think those old “rules” really don’t apply!

2) I last wore this shirt as featured below:

I generally like to find silk tops that are long enough to serve as a shirt with leggings, but not so long that they are bulky under skirts or tucked in. Longer tops that can be worn with leggings can be a little tough to find, but I tend to find them most frequently at Nordstrom Rack. They are also a  good option for people (like me) with long torsos, as they ensure length and coverage.

Anyone else check out their local auto show? Focus mostly on what to wear versus the actual event? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much!

  1. I used to own a pair of boots like yours, and I’ll be, but for the life of me, I cannot remember what happened to them. It would be just torture anyways, IF I still had them, because I wouldn’t be able to wear them, just look at them. Hope you had a great vaca, Melissa!!! Love, Amy
