Walk the Line

Ah, what a month it’s shaping up to be! Just about half way through June and it feels like summer, which just began, can already be considered over. The best way to not lose sight of what’s right in front of me, is to just keep walking the line. Today I’m doing just that in…

Leave it to Levi’s

Happy June everyone! Before I  get started on today’s post, I  wanted to extend another thank you to everyone who read my Pride post that I  kicked off this month with last week. Being vulnerable regarding something so personal is not easy, but the texts and other messages I received were so kind and sweet….

Pride & Joy

June has arrived and that means we’re really into the swing of Summer and also the swing of Pride Month. Pride Month has a history of celebrating LGBT rights, culture and for so many including myself, is a time to reflect and celebrate how far someone has come in their lives as being a part…

Suiting Up

Mayday, mayday! Truly it’s a crisis that all May long I’ve been so swamped and haven’t had anytime to post. I figured it’s better late than never and I  finally have the time (and looks) to share some spring style! In my line of work, wearing a suit everyday has never been and probably never…

Flower Child

I know what you’re thinking… flowers for spring… groundbreaking. All joking aside, flowers do feel pretty groundbreaking, especially when it’s still snowing here in April. Again, I’ve got to manifest spring in my wardrobe in order to get in the spirit. This shot was actually taken at Chicago’s Garfield Park Conservatory because it’s one of…

Social Studies

School is session today here on Witt&Style, and the lesson: Social Studies 101. I’m not talking about the blend of history, geography and sociology, I’m talking about that necessary evil little friend of ours, Social Media. I use that phrase “necessary evil” with the best intentions, because let’s face it, the chances you got to…

Chicago Go-Tos

For someone who enjoys traveling so much, coming home to Chicago is always an amazing feeling. As I  look out the window of my Uber, I always love being greeted by the skyline and know I’ve chosen a world-class city to call home. Between showing around out of town guests or receiving texts from friends…

2018 Inspiration

How is everyone’s 2018 going so far?…. cold, I’m assuming, but full of of optimism and positivity for what’s to come I hope! The January agenda often comes with an empty fridge, a closet purge and the dismantling your Christmas tree and other decorations. This year, while doing my annual sifting through the previous year’s…

Garden Guy

Remember when I said I’d be manifesting spring through my wardrobe…. well it’s not working. (case in point, it snowed on Monday :/) Although it might not be as warm as I’d like, I’m still feeling inspired by florals with another look, similar to the one from last week.  Shooting these pictures at Garflield Park…

Spring It On

Have you ever wanted something to happen so badly that you’ll do just about anything to manifest it? That’s me with… everything spring this year! One of the only major downsides of being a Chicago resident is a never ending winter and this year is no exception. It feels like it’s never going to warm…

Spring Forward, Fall Back

As I mentioned earlier this month, spring is all supposed to be all about rebirth and having that awakening that would cure me of that funk February put me in. The month of March is almost over and let’s just say… I’m still in need of that cure. We recently just experienced Daylight Savings Time…

De-Briefing

One of my favorite things about fashion and clothes, is that with each new step in life, comes a new stylish privilege. Moving to Chicago from Florida meant getting a new coat, snow boats, and other winter friendly items. With a new job, came the valid excuse to finally get a work bag or in…

It’s about time

It’s been a busy March so far, with little time to put together some blog posts, but it’s about time I change that. Back in November and December, I  showcased an up and coming watch company based right here out of Chicago, Wolfpoint. Wolfpoint’s timepieces have local roots and design elements that come together and…

Spring Awakening

What a month February was…. the shortest month always feels the longest right? These monthly “check ins” on 2018 are equally rewarding and frustrating at the same time. It’s always a good idea to check in on yourself and your goals, but when they’re not going your way, it’s not so fun. February was a…

Settling In

February has certainly been the coldest month of the year in Chicago as long as I’ve been here, which means the walls of my apartment start to close in while I live in a state of hibernation until spring rounds the corner. Because I  find myself having more nights in during this short month, it’s…
