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…

The Write Way

Maintaining a blog requires a few things…. creativity, photos and of course, writing. I’m no author, but I’ve enjoyed the process of improving my writing skills through blogging. I’ve always appreciated the art of writing, and it’s emotional sentiment. Whether you’re doodling to relieve stress, keeping a travel journal or sending a thoughtful note, there’s…

Much Love

Valentine’s Day is perhaps one of the most bitter sweet holidays. It’s full of chocolate, mushy love poems and for some, a large reminder of your state of being single. As someone who…. has never had a Valentine on February 14th, you’d think I’d be annoyed on a day that’s marketed toward couples. On the…

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…

Turtle Time

If you can’t tell by my face in this photo, I’m OVER it, and by it, I  mean the fact that it’s back to snow flurries and decimal temps in Chicago. At this point, 3 layers, daily uber rides and a winter coat are all necessary to survive. Another necessity this season for me has…

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…

Checked Out

With February just days away, I’ve officially checked out of January. January was our trial month of 2018, right? So far, so good, so I  guess I’ll renew my subscription for the rest of the year. Another thing I’m always renewing my subscription on is Netflix my vintage buffalo check shirt. Although that lumberjack or…

Grey Days

Ever since the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise hit the world, I  seriously cannot think of anything else when I’m wearing more than one grey piece in an outfit. This look is more two shades of grey, but I’m loving them both. Grey has always been and perhaps always be, the perfect neutral int the…
