The holidays are officially here. It’s the season of holiday parties and events. There are so many occasions to dress up and have fun. I have my eye on tons of amazing dresses and this ruffled number is up first.
One of the season’s most fun new trends are jeans with pearl embellishments. For months, I had been searching high and low for the perfect pair.
It’s getting chilly here in Chicago which means it’s time to break out my favorite over the knee boots. I’ve been wearing these Stuart Weitzman babies for five seasons straight now! They are a bit of a splurge, but the classic style is well worth it. Nearly five years later, Stuart Weitzman still sells the same style. The quality is unmistakeable and they’re also very comfortable. I’ll love these boots until they wear out – which won’t be anytime soon.
When fall comes around, I always find myself dreaming about new shoes. The good news is there are SO many fun pairs this season that won’t break the bank, including the Skechers that I’m wearing. Yes, those are Skechers! Keep reading for full details on this look and shop the best ankle boots under $100 at the end of this post.
Fall can be a challenging season for footwear. It feels wrong to wear sandals or open-toed shoes, but is it too soon for boots? My favorite shoes to wear for fall are loafers and flats. And to answer the question — boots are totally appropriate, especially ankle booties. However, if it’s not cold enough yet for boots, loafers are the perfect solution. Chicago weather has trouble making up its mind during fall, so I don’t want to be too warm in boots.
I spent last weekend at PoshFest, which is Poshmark’s annual conference. This year, it was held in Chicago and I was fortunate to be invited as a guest of RXBar. I just recently made my first Poshmark sale (shop my Poshmark closet here), so I felt a little out of place amongst all of the amazing ladies who have sold tons of items and some who even re-sell clothes full-time. But, it was a fun and inspiring weekend nonetheless. Read on for details on this look.
Recently, I went to an event where I was introduced to local Chicago handbag brand, Holly & Tanager. Their bags are sleek and functional, as all good bags should be. The Italian leather is top notch too. My favorite part is that it can be worn as either a cross body or a clutch – it’s two bags in one.
The weather is finally starting to cool down, indicating that fall is near. I wore pants last week for the first time in a couple of months! That’s ok because I’m getting tired of sweating and shaving my legs every day. I’ve linked my favorite fall transitional style items.
My blog content has been a little light lately and there’s good reason for that. I graduated college and got my first full-time job! Being done with school feels weird, but very good. I want to share some quick reflections and lessons from my first month after graduation.
