casual coat (aka totally tweed)

I don’t think I can trace back my love of blazers. It’s not as though I was a wee Huntress wearing a blazer in elementary school. (Side note, would that have made me the coolest kid in school, or the oddest?). Anyway, well, apparently over the years, I developed a strong love of blazers and itContinue reading “casual coat (aka totally tweed)”

pink pattern party (aka ode to A)

Sometimes, we just know a kindred spirit right when we meet them, right? This is definitely how I feel about my friend A. The first time I met her, I noticed her jazzy glasses and shoes…and I just knew we would get along. Over the years, we’ve traded nail and clothing tips- and when IContinue reading “pink pattern party (aka ode to A)”

fuchsia fever

These shoes, a recent find at, yet again, Kohl’s have me totally feeling fuchsia fever. As much as I love my tights, I’m totally happy that it’s warm enough to enjoy some sun, warm weather, and all the outdoor activities that we miss during Chicago winters. My current favorite outdoor activity, when I can squeezeContinue reading “fuchsia fever”

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”

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”

charmed in charleston (south carolina)

As you may know from my last post, I was happily on vacation last week. While we somehow arrived in Charleston, South Carolina for record low weather, we nonetheless enjoyed our time in the charming city. Perhaps you won’t be surprised to learn that I had researched the shopping in the area. During my research,Continue reading “charmed in charleston (south carolina)”

thankful

Tomorrow, in the US, we celebrate Thanksgiving Day. While reflecting on blessings is not limited to one day, Thanksgiving, to me, is an important day to celebrate with loved ones and reflect on the many blessings we have experienced throughout the year. I am so thankful this year for the many blessings that have comeContinue reading “thankful”
