Mule Mania

The slip-on trend is here to stay, guys! I got my first pair of slides early this spring… I couldn’t resist the Gucci gingham. Sadly this print is sold out now, but the Gucci Princetown Slip-On Loafers are still very much a craze. Sadly, pricey AF. There are a ton of other affordable styles available this fall though! I’m in the market to scoop up a few styles to wear this season in place of regular loafers and ballet flats. I figured I’d share a few of my favorites in case you’re in the market, too! So many reasonably priced finds.

Lost Outfits from London

When I was combing through some photo folders on my computer, I realized I never posted two of the outfits that I wore in London last time! (A few posts from that trip: My First Trip to LondonNotting Hill Photo DiaryWhere to Stay in LondonA Travel EssentialLondon StyleI can’t wait to share more about this trip… I’m loving London this time around. Like, I could definitely live here. (I talked about it in this post, but I was going through some personal shit last time I was here and didn’t have the best time. And also more or less had a meltdown in a cycling studio last time around, too. Hilarious to look back on now, not so funny at the time! ha) Anyway, I’ll be sharing more in the week(s) to come, but I figured I post these two outfits for a fun trip down memory lane.

NYFW: Backstage Beauty at Tracy Reese with Mary Kay

I had skipped out on two seasons of NYFW after I moved to Chicago from New York last summer. Timing was never quite right and very honestly, I felt a little burned out from all of the seasons I had already been fortunate enough to go to while living in New York and even before. But when an opportunity to partner with Mary Kay came up, where I would get to go backstage to focus on beauty, I jumped at it – and I’m so glad that I did! I think that little one-year break did wonders… It felt so good to be back in the saddle during the NYFW craziness, especially in a bit of a different way!

Saturday Night Staple

I typically only blog about outfits that I wear during the day, but I’ve been making more of an effort to feature a few of my “night out” outfits, too! Whether you’re headed on a bachelorette party or just going out for a fun night on the town, it can be tricky to figure out what to wear. (Especially if your daytime style is a lot more conservative, like mine!) It’s obviously always dark when I’m headed out with my girlfriends at night, so I just have to make more of an effort to photograph them during the day. (A few other going out outfits: this orange dressthis black lace dressthis suede skirt and crop top combo, and this little blue dress!)
