How To Choose The Perfect Winter Coat
Finding the perfect winter coat is one of the most challenging aspects of living in a cold-weather city. I still cannot believe that when I moved to Chicago I only owned one coat. I have embarrassingly over-corrected at this point after living in c ...

My Favorite Cozy Sweater
After hearing everyone complain for weeks about our how warm our fall has been, their wishes have been granted. It's officially fall headed straight towards winter. I am using this time to pull out all of my favorite new sweaters and shoes before th ...

The Only Over The Knee Boots You’ll Need
I've seen girls post time and time again about the Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots (Thighland, Highland, Lowland, you name it) and how they were totally worth the money spent on them. I just couldn't bring myself to actually spend that much on a ...

Velvet Platform Heels
Let's talk about these heels. I'm sure you've seen velvet heels pop up everywhere this year! I saw them at the beginning of the season and knew that I needed to find a pair for dressing things up this season.

Everyday Ankle Booties
Style for me these days is all about knowing yourself and what you'll actually wear and what works for your body. I think back and laugh a bit at some of the trends I used to try in my early 20's. These days you could call what I wear in the fall mor ...

Weekend Style For Him
Guess who's back? Yup, it's MG day again! For guys it's so simple when the seasons change. You break out a few sweaters, flannels, boots, and call it a day.

Fall Style For Him
MG would say that he is "a simple guy" who doesn't need a lot of stuff. Over the last few years I've slowly helped him nurture his inner stylist, and now he'll let me help him pick out some new pieces every season.

My Fall Color Palette
I hinted at this earlier this week, but burgundy is the color of the season for me. Merlot, wine, burgundy – it's all the same to me and I'm here for it all season long.

Burgundy Lace Top
I admittedly love to dress for comfort most days before anything else. I'm lucky to be able to wear jeans to work and I usually gravitate towards things that are stylish, but still low maintenance and low key. I'm sure everyone goes through this, ...

Back To Black
It feels very fitting that my first post back in the city was in this virtually all black ensemble. There's something about colder weather that always leads me to purchasing items in my favorite and unfailing wardrobe color. This fall I really wanted ...

10 Things I Love About New York
We're officially back in New York for the foreseeable future and I can't help but breathe a sigh of relief. Yes, I love traveling and summer is always more fun outside of the city. But as soon as fall comes around, I love settling back into our groov ...

Endless Summer
My love for summer is truly endless. It has always been my favorite season and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Living in New York has completely changed how I feel about fall, and I've tried really hard over the last few years to embrace it ...

Preparing Your Fall Wardrobe
My goal this upcoming fall is to focus on pieces that I can get a lot of wear out of and feel like I'm contributing more to my overall "wardrobe" with each purchase. I fall very guilty in the summertime of looking for super trendy and extra colorful ...

The Perfect Plaid Top For Now & Later
It wasn’t until I moved up here that I really started appreciating and loving fall. In fact, it’s one of my favorite seasons in the city and is definitely the best time of year to come visit. If you ask any New Yorker now they will likely agree w ...

A Casual White T-Shirt Under $20
This is my definition of the perfect casual outfit – simple, classic and not too overthought. Most days I love to get dressed up and love a good dress and pair of heels, but there are plenty of days where a pair of jeans and a great t-shirt will ...

Backless Ruffle Dress
Who else is on the wedding circuit this summer? We've been all over the place the last few months at weddings for friends and loved ones and you know what that means – lots of different occasions to get dressed up for. I usually try and plan ahead ...

Day To Night Travel Outfit
Our flight landed around 7:45 and we had an 8:45 p.m. reservation at my absolute favorite restaurant. I was really excited to take MG there for the first time and kick off his first night in Chicago. I really wanted to wear something comfortable that ...

Embroidered Jeans
I fell in love with these embroidered jeans earlier this summer and since then, as MG says, "they've gotten a lot of burn." I was looking for something playful and with color, but still easy to pair with lots of white tops and other neutrals to keep ...

5 Ways To Wear Gingham
Lemons may be having their moment this summer, but gingham will always be a mainstay in terms of summer prints. From picnic baskets to blankets, gingham is a print that most associate with summer itself. It's been one of my favorites for quite some ...

What To Wear To A Summer BBQ
When it comes time to get ready, I just want something effortless. I gravitate towards bringing maxi dresses with me for weekends like these because it’s the only thing I can wear where I can actually beat MG getting dressed.

What To Wear For The 4th of July
I have so many fond memories of the 4th of July from growing up. We've spent tons of holidays at the ballpark watching the Rangers, parades in our old neighborhood where I'd spend hours decorating my bike in our garage the night before, and a few out ...

Floral Wrap Dress
Well, it's official. Today is the first day of summer! Even though I mark the first day of summer over Memorial Day weekend there's something about the "real" arrival that just makes me want to put on my favorite dress and head to the nearest patio f ...

Vacation Style With ASOS
I don’t know about you guys, but I get really really excited for summer every year. I feel like I spend most of the winter dreaming of somewhere warmer and planning our travel (and obviously the outfits that go along with) to keep me from going c ...

Cotton Maxi Dress
I love to live in maxi dresses during the summer – whether they're bright and cheery like this one or simple and monochromatic, it's my go to especially when the season really takes off and I'm busy week after week. I picked up this dress a ...

The “Goes With Everything” Dress
With the unofficial kickoff to summer behind us I’m ready to embrace long days, cold cocktails, and patio season! I don’t know about you but post Memorial Day, I flip the switch and am in summer mode in all aspects until Labor Day (and then some) ...

5 Summer Straw Hats
As much as I love getting sun in the summertime, in my older age I've become much more conscious of protecting my skin. Whether it's the right sunscreen, makeup that has sunscreen in it, or oversized sunnies I try to keep an arsenal of weapons tha ...

Summer Heels
I've been super excited about these heels for a lot of reasons and mostly just waiting for the weather to finally turn and the rain to stop so that they could make their debut. I find it really difficult to wear true heels in the summer and tend to ...

Flutter Sleeves
Instant love. That's what happened when I first laid eyes on this adorable top! I don't know if it was the little floral print or the pintucked flutter sleeves or the combination of both, but something about this shirt just told me it needed to ...

Linen Romper
My summer vibe can be summed up in two words: casual and breezy. Sure, you’ll find me in a lot of dresses and wedges or a heel, but dresses are my definition of easy. Then I discovered this romper.

Summer Date Nights + Stitch Fix Styling
Memorial Day is right around the corner and you know what that means? Summer is almost here! I've been cleaning out my closet in anticipation of my favorite 4 months of the year. My summer wardrobe is at least 2x the size of my fall/winter wardrob ...

What Inspires You?
Someone asked me this question recently and it really made me think. Where am I the most creative? Where do I feel the most energized and inspired? The answer then became simple the more I thought about it: I’m the most inspired when I travel. ...

A Comfortable LBD Under $100
How many of you guys own a little black dress that is so comfortable that you could probably do yoga in? My guess is your answer is no. Most dressy clothes are let's face it – not that comfortable. I would've said the same thing until I stumble ...

How To Style A Smocked Skirt
Spring is officially upon us and so that means it's time to dust off your skirts and sandals! Inevitably the first few real weeks of the season after 6 months of waiting I stand there in my closet and ask myself, "what do I wear"? While we're stil ...
