snow falling on flowers

I’m pretty much over winter these days. But…when I saw the snow falling, I basically had no choice but to roll out there and take some blog photos. I ended up loving these photos, so I think it was totally worthwhile. However, now that I’ve captured the photos, Spring is welcome to come immediately toContinue reading “snow falling on flowers”

loving leopard (rings)

Speaking of “new version of you” in 2014 (see last post), I found a really interesting ring at Express the other day. It wasn’t really my “usual” style, but something about this leopard ring really spoke to me. I’ve seen a ton of animal cuffs, necklaces, and rings in the past, but haven’t really foundContinue reading “loving leopard (rings)”

new version of you (aka ode to Felicity)

Readers. I have a confession. Every once in a while, I go home after work and watch old reruns of the show Felicity on Netflix. Does anyone else remember Keri Russell in that show? I’m not sure if it ever aired abroad, to those reading from outside the US. Either way, allow me to shareContinue reading “new version of you (aka ode to Felicity)”

snow (and home) bound

I’m sorry to say that I seem to have caught some sort of bug. However, it’s -45 with the wind chill here. So, I feel that if I’m going to be sick, at least I’m snowed (and cold) in! Being that I was feeling over heated everywhere I went, I took the opportunity to takeContinue reading “snow (and home) bound”

bright lights big 2014

My list of 2014 resolutions seems sort-of endless. Nonetheless, I’m committed to, at the very least, trying to accomplish them! I have a few non-fashion goals, but here are my fashion goals (more interesting than ‘keeping the house clean’) (though, seriously, that is a BIG goal for 2014). 1) Finally clean out my closet (fine.Continue reading “bright lights big 2014”

resolutions and evolution

With 2014 around the corner, I decided to take a look back at some of my first posts on the blog. The blog isn’t quite a year old yet, but, wow, it has taken on a life of its own over the past 11 months! My first posts were a bit rough around the edges…asContinue reading “resolutions and evolution”

flash forward (in red)

Wow. What a whirlwind lately, readers! I’m sorry that I’ve gotten behind in my blogging during the holiday madness! But, by 2014, I’m going to be back on track! I’m slowly whittling down my to-do list…though it continues to look a bit endless at the moment- anyone else feeling that way!? However, as I alwaysContinue reading “flash forward (in red)”

(studded) dreams come true (again)

Don’t be fooled by these photos, readers. This fashion blogger is getting swept up in the holiday madness and falling a bit behind on posts. Thus, despite the fall colors in the background, it is, alas, not fall here in Chicago. Despite this being a “fall” post, I’m actually glad I can share it withContinue reading “(studded) dreams come true (again)”

nervously new heights (aka zippy in zebra)

I can’t say that I’ve ever gotten nervous while taking my blog photos…until these photos. I don’t know if it was the heights, fear of falling off a ledge onto a conveyer belt, or the small space, but I got nervous (and nervous fast) on this shoot. Despite the jitters, I ended up loving theContinue reading “nervously new heights (aka zippy in zebra)”

furry fun at the field (museum)

Despite the intense cold we are experiencing here in Chicago, nothing will stop me from going outdoors! …Well, I’m about at the threshold where I will solely leave for work and then hibernate after…but I’m not there yet! Thus, with our adventurous spirit intact, my bf and I hit up the Field Museum. Let meContinue reading “furry fun at the field (museum)”

layered and laughing

Working in a hospital means we spend our days faced with illness and problem solving. To diffuse the stress, my partners in crime and I manage to take a few moments each day to enjoy the company of each other.  Not surprisingly, our breaks often involve taking the photos for the blog…and laughter ensues.  IContinue reading “layered and laughing”

simply black and white with a splash (of color)

I don’t have much to say today, which is a bit odd for me. I think my just brain wants quiet time. But, thankfully it didn’t go on hiatus before I got dressed and made it through the day. Thanks, brain. This is my simply black and white outfit with a splash of color. AndContinue reading “simply black and white with a splash (of color)”
