The Very Best White Jeans

I’ve mentioned these white jeans here and there over the last few weeks, but as I was placing an order for two more pairs online last week, I realized that they needed their own dedicated post. (And just so we’re clear, this post is in no way sponsored. They’re just *that* good, trust.)

What to Wear to a Fall Wedding

I still can’t believe we’re holding on to such warm temperatures when October is less than a week away! You’ll never catch me complaining about getting to spend the weekend on a boat in late September, that’s for sure. I will say, though, getting dressed has been a little bit of a challenge. I’m ready to retire a lot of my summer clothes and it’s way too hot to wear most of my new pieces for fall, but I just keep telling myself, “Enjoy this while it lasts. You’ll be begging for warm weather come February.”

70’s Vibes in London

Right around this time last year, I was hopping on a flight to head to London for London Fashion Week, followed by spending a month solo in Paris. It’s wild how fast time flies… It honestly feels like it was just last week! I got *so* lucky with the weather when I was in London on that trip… It was gorgeous and sunny almost the entire week I was there. I love London, but I was on Cloud 9 not having to battle the rain and cold!

Friday Finds || Week 38

What a week! This was my first ‘normal’ week since the end of July and it felt good to be back in a bit of a routine. Eating healthy, working out, sleeping well, settling into my morning groove, catching up on work, planning for the season ahead… Sounds pretty mundane, but it was a nice change of pace. And oh my gosh, THE WEATHER! I hate to be one of those people that always harps on the weather (both the good and the bad), but my mood is always so affected by it. I’ve been on cloud nine this week, you guys! We’ve been so, so lucky in Chicago… It truly feels like summer! (Honestly, it’s like 90 degrees.) The forecast is calling for 88 and sunny all weekend long so I guess I got my wish with one more pool weekend before the seasons shift for good. You know where to find me… 😉

Playfully Preppy + 2 New Parisian Places in Chicago!

When it comes to fall clothing, I’m all about the playfully preppy details. I love taking basic wardrobe staples (like denim, sweaters, and jackets) and mixing them with a few classic prints for a fun pattern pop. The more layers and textures, the merrier! Each little (unexpected) detail helps to complete the outfit.

When you’re mixing prints, you really can’t go wrong if you stick to the classics… Stripes, leopard print, polka dots, and even camo. It’s all fair game! Preppy with a twist, just the way I like it. Give your outfit some extra personality by having fun with your prints!
