Floral Fundamentals

In the words of Miranda Priestly… “Florals for spring…. groundbreaking.” An iconic line, but an accurate one none the less. But would it be spring without a post about floral prints…. not even close. If the trend isn’t broke, then don’t fix it, right? Instead of going for my usual bright and cheery floral prints…

Express Yourself

Last month I had the opportunity to work on a spring look for Express, and today I’m finally able to share a little bit more about the look. The timing of the partnership couldn’t have been better, as spring was finally making an appearance in Chicago and my closet was in desperate need of something…

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.…

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…

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…

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…
