Spring + Summer

Summer Brights
As someone who is usually rather monochromatic in the Fall and Winter, summer is the time when I break out my boldest and brightest colors. I'm usually not afraid to mix and match and pair them together. There's something about the sunshine that just ...

Peplum Bow Top
When it comes to my style, it’s hard to not be influenced by the people I spend the most time with. I would see my friends 4-5 times a week for dinners, after work drinks, and just hanging out in our neighbhorhood or at one of our apartments. Outsi ...

Summer Maxi Dress
One of the best things about summertime is the ability to throw on a simple dress and walk out the door. Being on the shorter side, I have a love/hate relationship with maxi dresses. I usually get them tailored to wear with heels, but I love being a ...

New York Nights
One of the best things about this time of year is how long the days are – making for long, fun nights. It's the best feeling to get off of work and the sun still be out and the city your oyster. It makes me so much more likely to get out and meet u ...

Summer Casual Top
You guys... it's officially summer! Well in my book anyways :). Memorial Day weekend is one of my favorites just for that reason, because it really signifies the beginning of my favorite season. I'm a summer girl, through and through. There's ju ...

There's something about an off-the-shoulder blouse that just makes me feel like the salsa girl emoticon. I picked up this skort in two colors from Zara a few years back, and even though I feel like the skort era is over, I still love to pull it out e ...

The Bucket Bag
If you've been shopping around at all this Spring, you've probably noticed that the bucket bag is back! I have clung tightly to one that I scooped up a few years back and have loved the shape and style, but it was time for a refresh. I love a pop of ...

The Perfect Pant
I’m not the type who is usually in the market for a polished pair of pants. You can find me in jeans most days and if I divert from my usual jean + blouse uniform for work, I’m probably throwing on a dress and occasionally a skirt. On a recent ...

Sporty Athletic Chic
If you're like me and love Pinterest and perusing Style.com (which is changing if you haven't heard) for some inspiration, you'll appreciate this one. Normally I wouldn't think to pair cropped yoga pants with a leather jacket and sneakers, but insp ...

Let’s Go Downtown
Every now and then I find myself on the hunt for one piece in particular. This Fall there was a show on Bravo (can't believe I'm admitting this out loud) that I found myself guiltily watching on Sunday nights mostly because it made me laugh, but also ...

The Little White Dress Twist
The little white dress is a Spring staple of mine that can be worn in so many ways. There are endless occasions perfect for a LWD – baby showers, bridal showers, special dinners and even date nights. It's kind of a blank canvas when it comes to sty ...

White Pumps
There are 4 sales a year that get me more excited than most guys get about the Super Bowl, World Series or Stanley Cup combined: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Neiman Marcus Last Call, the Net-A-Porter summer sale, and most recently the Net-A-Porter ...

Tropical Nights with Neiman Marcus
Ever since I was little, I’ve had a weakness for dresses. My mom never had a tough time getting me into one – if anything, she had a hard time convincing me to wear anything else. One of the things I’ve always found so special about them is tha ...

Trenchcoat Weather
After 5 days in Puerto Rico, my only wish upon returning to New York was for the sun to come out a bit more. Mother nature hasn’t quite made up her mind and right now we’re in that in-between weather that some people hate, but I actually kind of ...

Bow Skirt
You may have heard of a few direct to your door services like Rocksbox for jewelry, Birchbox for beauty products, and a few others that have become more household names as of late, but I'm excited to share a new favorite with you called Style Checkin ...

Boho, Baby
Good dresses are hard to find and even harder to find are good dresses under $50. I love being able to throw on a little number and walk out the door. Festival season is upon us and the weather everywhere is a bit all over the place, so when I saw ...

Florals With An Edge
Personally, I love a good floral print and this Spring wanted to try and work in some girlier pieces, like this midi skirt. It's perfect for Easter, brunches, or for a shower or luncheon as an alternative to a dress. The tricky thing about wardrob ...

On The Go Style with Talbots
It's no secret that I am usually super busy (just as I'm sure you are too). My errands are run in massive batches and sometimes there's just not enough arms and legs and time to do it all! On nights I'm going to work out straight from work, I ac ...

Making Summer Dresses Wearable Now
Now that the days are lighter and brighter, I'm ready to pull out my colorful prints and am anxiously awaiting the days where I can ditch my coats completely. In the meantime, I'm doing what I can to get my favorite summer dresses out of my closet n ...

Everyday Basics
You know those times when you get your mind set on something, and it's all you can think about? That's me, on the hunt for the perfect, casual, soft striped tee. Thankfully after hunting high and low I finally found not one, but several! The one I ...

Work to Happy Hour
Getting dressed for work can be hard enough on its own, but if you have plans after work.. forget about it. It's like automatic mental block, I swear! I try to keep myself busy at least once a week with something social, fun and unrelated to blogg ...

Netural Tones
I'm a firm believer in the power of a pair of heels. You can be in an incredibly casual outfit, like this pair of easy jeans, top and grandpa sweater and throw on a pair of heels to instantly feel more dressed up and pulled together. It's every woman ...

Beckoning Spring
Like everyone else, I'm getting the itch for Spring. I so badly want to pull out some of my new pieces for Spring, but it's tricky to work them in until the weather starts cooperating.  Layers have been my best friend! I'm a huge Everlane fan an ...

A Little Flare
Black and white is one of those classic combinations that will never fail, no matter the season. Whether it's a mostly white end of summer look like this one, or a "it's the dead of winter" all black ensemble it's always a solid choice. I've been tr ...

Bow Sleeves
One of my favorite things about Instagram is how easy it is to discover new brands, sites, photographers and just all around cool people. Thanks to my daily exploration of my favorite app, I recently discovered a new site called Goodnight Macaroon ...

Camo and Leather
Every now and then I think it's important to do something or try something that you wouldn't really consider to be very "you", especially when it comes to style. I think branching out is important because those things you thought you never liked beco ...

White Blazer and Cutoffs
Cutoff shorts are a weakness of mine and I find myself wanting to dress them up and down all summer long and into the Fall while I still can. After hunting far and wide for an "appropriate" pair, I was so happy to find that Free People had an afforda ...

Delicate Details
On my last day of work I pulled together a quick outfit for a warm summer day in Chicago. I have been wearing these shorts and this top on repeat because of the detailed embroidery - it just feels like summer when I put them on! After combing thro ...

Old Orchard Sip and Shop
One of the last events I had the pleasure of being a part of here in Chicago was the Westfield Old Orchard Sip & Shop a few weeks ago. I can honestly say it was one of my favorite events to date. I'm a big fan of outdoor, walking malls - there's ...

Festival Style
This past weekend was Lollapalooza here in Chicago - hands down one of my favorite weekends to live in the city! There's great music, food and lots of laughs and of course, amazing style! I love seeing people experiment and step out of the box for th ...
