spring stripes

Oh my, it’s a big day!! I am exposing my toes to the elements! And it’s going really well because I can still feel my toes, there’s a warm breeze, and the sun is shining. It really is the little things, right? Today, I am coloring inside the lines in black and white stripes. …myContinue reading “spring stripes”

feathery fringe

I knew I was on the lookout for a feather or fringe skirt; so when I finally found one on sale (!), I debated long and hard about how to wear fringe at work and still look professional. Turns out, it’s really not that hard. Add a serious-looking top, and it’s all business on topContinue reading “feathery fringe”

more mint please!

I think we can all agree that my obsession with mint may be reaching an unhealthy level. But seriously, I cannot stop myself and really see no reason to anyway. I can’t help but think back upon a time when colored pants weren’t even being made with much frequency, unless, of course, they were SpandexContinue reading “more mint please!”

gone green (floral)

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. “ItContinue reading “gone green (floral)”

high waisted and horses

I’ve never been really drawn to high waisted full leg pants, readers. But, in trying on my first pair, I decided I’m actually a long time fan. I think high waisted pants full leg pants are basically the power pants of spring, combine them with power heels and horses? I’m in high waisted and horse,Continue reading “high waisted and horses”

lilac and lace

It may still be snowing here at times, but I am feeling very floral and pastel these days (see my last three posts, ha!). I found this dress over the winter and wanted to save it for spring, which is unusual for me. I normally tear the tags right off and style away! But, there’sContinue reading “lilac and lace”

totally tweed (and super supports)

Despite being sick most of the week, this week has been full wonderful- full of kindness and unexpected surprises. Shout-out to support systems: family, friends, partners, colleagues. You all make the world go round.   “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” ― Lao Tzu Dress: Tory Burch viaContinue reading “totally tweed (and super supports)”

on the mend (in a color medley)

Sorry for the delay in posting this week, readers. I’ve unfortunately caught whatever virus is going around, despite my best efforts to avoid it. I’m on the mend, though, drinking lots of fluids, and making my comeback! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start…though seeing how it’s actually mid-week, I guess IContinue reading “on the mend (in a color medley)”

pink party continues

Seriously, you cannot get me out of pastels lately, especially pink (see my last post re: my previous aversion to pastels). Maybe blush pink is the marsala of spring? Either way, I’m loving the lightness that you feel when in light colors. Now I’m just waiting for mother nature to show us the first bloomsContinue reading “pink party continues”

purely pastels

When I was but a wee huntress, I LOVED neon. It was the 90s, after all. Head to toe neon was the thing. My favorite outfit was one that I had picked up with my grandmother: rainbow neon leopard print spandex pants and a matching leopard sweatshirt (with an actual leopard printed on it). Seriously,Continue reading “purely pastels”

spring (zebra) stripes

Well, readers, it is official…and I don’t think there’s any turning back now: spring is upon us. I’m like a kid in a candy shop. I found myself just driving around in circles and walking around the block to take the fresh air in. The smell of spring always reminds me of my younger years,Continue reading “spring (zebra) stripes”

feeling very floral

There’s little bits of grass showing around town, and my heart is a-flutter, readers. I took inspiration from Mother Nature and wore little bits of floral on my feet and around my neck. I don’t know about anyone else, but sometimes it feels like I’m holding my breath through the cold winters and dark days,Continue reading “feeling very floral”
