comfy cozy

If there’s one thing I can get behind in winter, it’s comfy cozy accessories. Today, I opted for my biggest scarf yet: the “blanket scarf.” Blanket scarves double as shawls and scarves. It’s my first foray into blanket scarves, believe it or not, but I can already tell I’m a fan. Today is all aboutContinue reading “comfy cozy”

feeling very fall

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for the well wishes for our wedding last weekend! Now that the wedding planning is complete, I am back to catching up on the rest of life :)! It seems that while I was planning away, fall had officially arrived in the Chicago area. As I walkedContinue reading “feeling very fall”

bright brocade

There’s a few styles of fabric and prints that have my heart (denim, toile, houndstooth, to name a few). Brocade has always been one of my favorites, but I rarely find brocade prints and fabric, let alone in metallic! So, I was, of course, super excited to find this skirt at BCBG over the summer.Continue reading “bright brocade”

Oof! Forgive the lack of posts last week, readers! I’ve been feeling under the weather lately (migraines!) (curses!). However, hopefully I am on the mend.

Continued from my last post, I’m adding additional details to my magical experience at The Trunk Show in Charleston, South Carolina.

However, when you walk in theContinue reading “treasures from the trunk show (charleston, sc, cont.)”

totally tweed

What is it about tweed that feels so fall and so grown up? I guess maybe because kids don’t wear a ton of tweed (do they?). When I’m in tweed, I feel like I’m all grown up- like I’m organized and know what I’m doing. So, of course, whenever I find a tweed piece onContinue reading “totally tweed”

windy wonder woman (cape)

Well, per usual, someone is going to have to conduct some sort of intervention with me in regards to my new obsession/love: the windy city wonder woman cape. Seriously, for $25, this cape is pure joy and worth every penny. It’s indoor/outdoor, and basically a stylish fleece blanket that is socially appropriate to wear inContinue reading “windy wonder woman (cape)”

Exhibit A: print on my top Is anyone else impressed that my three year old niece chose a gender neutral theme? I would have thought FrozenContinue reading “beautifully buggy”
