What I Wore: Floral Frock

If you live in Chicago, you know the past few days have been BEAUTIFUL! Like 70 degrees and sunny. I totally wouldn't mind all of fall/winter being like this. I went to the ballet Sunday afternoon, and, since it was so nice out, wore this floral dress from Free People. Both the muted color and the long sleeves made it perfect for fall. And how about those buttons on the back and sleeves?!

Here's What I Wore:

Dress: Free People; Shoes: Louboutin.
Twirlin'.
These nudes Loubs went perfect with the color of this dress. 
The buttons on the sleeve are my favorite part of this dress. 
So elegant.
Such a great casual chic dress.

What I Wore: More Fall Foliage & Sweaters

Ok, yeah, I like fall -- as you can probably tell from my last few posts. This past weekend, the guy and I went up to a lakehouse in Michigan for a little fall R&R. We hiked through the woods, along the beach and I enjoyed all of it in this super cozy new sweater from Free People and my ALL TIME FAVORITE scarf from Akira. It's so cozy I can't even begin to tell you.

Here's What I Wore:

Sweater: Free People; T-shirt: H&M; Leggings: TopShop; Boots: Hunter.

Scarf: Akira Chicago.
I bought this scarf last year from Akira, and it was hands down the best purchase I made all winter. So warm, so cozy and the fall colors are so chic! It's like wrapping a sweater around your neck.

Highly recommend Hunter boots of a fall hike.
Fall life.

Gorg Michigan foliage.

Fall <3.

How amazing is this?

What I Wore: Casual Friday

Sorry for being MIA lately. Work has been crazy. And sometimes you just need to have your priorities straight. Am I right?

Fridays are casual at my office, so I snuck off to the nice bathroom (the only one I can find in my building with a full-length mirror) for a selfie. 


Shirt // H&M 
Jeans // American Eagle 
Booties // Lucky
Watch // Michael Kors

I love how simple and easy this look is. And these booties. Let's talk about them. They're stupid comfortable. Mr. and I went for a mile long walk when I was wearing them and not a single blister was found, or complaint heard. I think thats kinda a big accomplishment. Don't you?

What is your go-to casual Friday look?

What I Wore: Fall Farm Vibes

Took a day trip up to Wisconsin this weekend to enjoy the fall foliage. It also gave me the opportunity to break out my Hunter boots for the first time this year as well as my new fall jacket from Joie.

Here's how I styled them:

Jacket: Joie; Scarf: Rag & Bone; Jumper: Wildfox; Jeans: Hudson; Boots: Hunter.

Sunglasses: Chloe.

My fav scarf. It goes with almost anything.

Farm chic.

Obssesed this jacket -- it's warm enough for those chilly 50-degree days, but not too heavy.

Broke out the Hunters.

Perfection -- and, yes, I took this photo.

What I Wore: Fall Uniform

Fall is my thing. I've said it before and I'll say it again. We just get along. I mean, really well. Like most people, I have a few staples that I gravitate towards during different seasons and during fall, its some version of a button down, skinnies and either boots or flats. So really, just the basics.

One of my favorite places to shop for button downs is Gap. They get it. I have at least 5 that I can think of off the top of my head that I absolutely love. When I wanted to add a plaid one to my wardrobe this year, the only place I could think to go was Gap. And I was not disappointed. Here's just one way I wear this one.








Top // Gap (similar)
Jeans // American Eagle
Boots // Enzo Angiolini (similar)
Sunglasses // Target
Watch // Michael Kors
Nails // Essie Bahama Mamma

See you soon!

What I Wore: Mad for Plaid

One of my must-haves for fall is a great plaid top. I got this one by Ace Delivery at Nordstrom. I paired it with with some leather Adam Tucker flats and my favorite pair of Hudson jeans and was ready for a Sunday walk along the Chicago river with my guy.

Here's what I wore:

Top: Ace Delivery from Nordstrom; Jeans: Hudson; Shoes: Adam Tucker.

Love a long, comfy plaid for fall.


Love the colors of this top.

Fall classic.

Obligatory blogger shot.

What I Wore: Cobalt Skirt

I've loved cobalt for a number of years. Finding this Tahari skirt on sale was an awesome find! Not only is it one of my favorite colors, but it's also a great silhouette. It's currently a size too big and sits a little frumpy on my waist, so I'm going to have it tailored, but didn't have a chance to before a fancy dinner-date with my aunt.






Top // The Limited
Skirt // Tahari

My aunt was in town over the weekend, so we went out to Gibson's Steakhouse for dinner and had a fabulous time. Gibson's is a nicer place, so I decided to spice it up a bit. I love this lace top from the Limited and have worn it a ton of different ways since I got it, but this may be my favorite. 

What are your go-to, fancy night-out outfits?

What I Wore: Leggings Aren't Pants

A wise woman once said, "Leggings aren't pants." And I totally agree. But these thicker leggings from Akira Chicago could be. They are comfy, flattering and are made of a thicker material that keeps you warm and doesn't make you look like you are walking around in tights with no skirt. I need to go back and buy a few more. I paired these with a long top and my absolute favorite scarf from Rag & Bone.

Here's what I wore:

Top: Splendid; Leggings: Akira; Scarf: Rag & Bone.

Shoes: Tory Burch.

Love a great casual scarf and leggings look.

Fall <3 

My favorite scarf -- it goes with everything!

What I Wore: Casual Night Out

Mr. and I headed to our local Oktoberfest this weekend to endulge in my always present craving for German food. Being German may have something to do with it, but regardless the food was great! There wasn't an oompah band this year which was a disappointment, but on the whole it was a success. 




Tshirt // Madewell
Jeans // American Eagle (these are a new pair and are by far the best jeans I've ever owned!)
Flats // J.Crew
Watch // Michael Kors
Scarf // Nordstrom

I love a good tshirt and jeans combo. And these two are my favorites of both. I wanted to dress it up a little so I added some glossy waves to look like I put in a little more effort to get ready. 

What are your favorite Oktoberfests in Chicago that I need to add to my list?
