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!

Great outfit! It’s been a lovely weekend in England too! Summer is my favourite time of year by far 🙂
Omg! That blazer color & print is so pretty! It looks amazing on white dress and pop of blue with bag is a great choice! Love it sooo much!
That is such a lovely green pattern! You’re accessories are perfect too:) I thought you did well with combining the textures, while keeping the same green theme!
I love all of the green accessories they really bring the outfit together. Here is to hoping you see more green everywhere you go!
Love the atmosphere in this photo:))
I love the bag; it makes me think of peacocks! I’m glad someone enjoyed the weather, I was way too tired from the go blog social conference to do anything when I got back.
Sounds cool! Was it in Chicago? How did it go??
No, it was in kansas city. It was definitely worth the trip. I just posted all the details on my blog.
Awesome!! I’ll check it out! 🙂
Clear nail polish to the rescue! I don’t know how many times it has saved me too 🙂
There is never such a thing as too many textures! I’m loving all the different shades of green 👌👌 And how cute is that bracelet and that bag😍 I need them in my life!lol!

Omg! The Color of your bag is very beautiful 😍
loving all the green!
My favorite snagged tights tip is hairspray. An old standby from my dancer days, it’s a great way to stop a run in its tracks. Less permanent that clear nail polish and at the end of the day you have to be prepared to peel your tights off your leg but for when you need to stop a run NOW it’s super useful.
That is SUCH a good tip! and I had no idea!! Thanks for sharing :)~!!
You are right by my husbands old office, at least it looks like it haha. This jacket gaaaaah love the vintage vibe, so perfect!
i’m actually literally squealing over your blazer and that green bracelet (FROGS???? OMG, i want one!! please please PLEASE remember to tell me whenever you’re tired of it!).
but wait, what is it about nail polish and tights with a run? i only heard once that you can “fix” it with nail polish, but HOW exactly? i haven’t tried it myself. perhaps you could do a small tutorial blog post about this? 🙂
Ooo good point!! Okay, I will share this in a mini tutorial :)~!!!
You look so adorable in this dress and blazer. LOVE the fishnets!!! I wore fishnets all the time when I was younger. I think they are so sexy, and they feel sexy too!!! You wear green, and I will find green, Melissa!!! LOL (((HUGS))) Amy
You’re right!! You did find the green :)~!! Same wavelength, Amy!! ❤ hugs!!
I think the textures are perfect! Especially for the awesome price. I can’t believe you found that blazer for $5!! I loveeee a good deal oh so much!
Lovely Little Rants
Not too many textures at all. It’s very quirky vintage chic and you’re rocking it. A Chicago swell should come rushing up to you in the street and present you with your own personal little bouquet of greenery 🙂
love the green bracelet. looks so wow! can I burrow it for a spell? 🙂
You thrift like a goddess! So impressive.
Loved the Rilke quote – let’s hope Earth remembers soon!!!!!!
Absolutely love that floral green jacket!
The green/floral blazer is a show stealer here! I also love your little white dress…
Here’s my little white dress fetish:
Okay I scrolled thro and I realized I had seen this post but dint tell you how cool I thought that blazer and that frog bracelet were. I louwvee it 😀
The print on your blazer is amazing! 😀 I only have spare black tights at my office. Living dangerously, I know. 😉
i’m loving the mix of textures and patterns , and the green is just love
