It’s that time of year again! Fall is my favorite time of year for so many reasons: booties, sweater weather, pumpkin spice everything (basic bish and proud), and most importantly…my birthday! My birthday is in exactly one week, so I always think it’s fun to put together a birthday wish list..ya know, in case any of you are tempted to buy me something.
I’m so excited to talk to you guys today about some of my favorite fall shoe trends partnering with one of my all time favorite shoe stores: Lori’s Shoes! As you may know, and even if you don’t you can probably tell by my blog’s name, I have a serious shoe addiction. There are so many fun options out there and they can really make an entire outfit. Before I even moved to Chicago, I stumbled across Lori’s Shoes one day in Lincoln Park when I was visiting and have been a loyal customer ever since. They have every trend you can think of, at different price points but one thing all their shoes have in common is quality.
I’ve talked to you guys about it before, but one area that I don’t mind investing in is shoes. The older I get, the more support I need and I can’t stress enough how important it is to invest in a good quality shoe for that.
One of my favorite time of the year is here, and that’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!! For cardholders, you can get early access now through July 20th and for everyone else the sale starts July 21st and runs through August 6th. I sifted through over 3000 pieces of merchandise and chose what I think are the best, and most affordable pieces. This wasn’t easy, so you can thank me later. Shop my favorite pieces below!
Since it’s the 4th of July and I know everyone is busy with friends and family, I wanted to keep this post short and to the point. With summer in full swing, I wanted to share some of my favorite slides with you! They’ve become my summer go-to shoe preference and I’m especially loving the frill and bow details. They go with everything and can be used as a statement piece for most outfits. Most of these are under $35! Keep scrolling to see some of my faves. I’ve also included some promo links at the bottom for Asos and Forever21!

Kimonos have become one of my new favorite staples for summer. I love them for so many reasons: they’re comfortable, they’re flattering, and if you ate a little too much at brunch they hide the muffin top quite well. [Read more…]
Summer and festival season pretty much go hand in hand and that time is officially upon us!
It started with Coachella but then you have so many other great music festivals throughout summer: Vans Warped Tour, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza Austin City Limits and more. While these events are no doubt all about music, they’ve become quite the fashion scene.
I put together an outfit that has a very boho type vibe that would be perfect for a music festival. For a lot of these festivals, it’s a great idea to dress in layers. It’s usually pretty hot during the day and sometimes gets chilly at night. I’ve linked some of my favorite boho/festival style items below.
I’m really loving a ton of 2017 spring trends right now, so much so that I wore hour in one outfit. Can you spot all the trends?
I consider myself a pretty big advocate of being confident in your body, no matter the size; but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have insecurities. One of my biggest insecurities has always been my arms. So when a trend comes along that is designed to make them look skinnier, I’m going to jump all over that!
Statement sleeves is a trend that you’ve most likely seen everyone rocking lately, from celebrities to fashion bloggers; it’s a pretty big hit that won’t be going away anytime soon. What better way to make what I like to call a “subtle statement”. Check out some photos I took of this great bell-sleeve top I got at SheIn (linked below). Even though the top makes a statement all it’s own, I paired it with some statement red booties and adorable cross body/oversized clutch. I also linked some other bell-sleeve tops below. Let me know what you think about this trend in the comments below!
Remember when we were kids, and we made fun of adults who wore fanny packs? Well, the joke was on us because they are awesome. Living in Chicago, I do quite a bit of walking and recently I was walking to the store and thought about how annoying it was to carry my entire purse when all I really needed was my credit card. Not to mention, if you’re doing a full day of walking whether it’s to explore, shop, etc. it gets a little painful on the shoulders and back to carry a bag all day. That’s the day I decided I’m bringing fanny pack’s back! But this time, they’ll be in the form of a belt bag. This was the best decision I’ve made in a while. They’re stylish and it’s taken so much stress off of my shoulders.
Check out the way I styled the two I’ve recently purchased. Below i’ve linked some additional options that I love! Let me know if you would wear them below in the comments.
My family and I do Secret Santa every year and instead of sending them ideas directly, I thought..why not make a blog post out of it! You’ll notice that most of my choices are winter related. It’s about to get real here in Chicago and I figured I better start preparing now. Scroll down to see why I chose each piece!
To my Secret Santa…I hope this helps!
