What a gorgeous weekend we had here in Chicago! I couldn’t be happier! I’m still patiently awaiting greenery, which is very slowly beginning to show itself here and there. I figured if I wore green and floral, perhaps I would bring my own flowers to the day. Cheers to, hopefully, a sun-filled Monday, readers.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) At first I thought this outfit might have too many different textures, but by keeping the theme “green,” the look remained coherent. Despite the various prints and textures, it was actually very easy to put this look together by focusing on one color and then surrounding it with neutrals.If you have various textures in your look, keep your outfit streamlined by focusing on one color palette. Alternatively, you can incorporate more colors if your textures are all fairly consistent.
2) I noticed half-way through my day that I had a run in my tights. SIGH. Luckily, I always have clear nail polish in my desk for this very reason. However, I could have been more prepared, as I don’t keep a spare pair of neutral tights in my office. My snag was small this time, but certainly sometimes tights are beyond repair! Here’s a really good article on how to keep your tights in good shape (and what better people to offer tips than the Rockettes, right?).
Anyone else have snagged tights tips? I hope everyone had a great weekend! Thanks so very much for stopping by; I appreciate it!
