What to Wear With: Grey Jeans

Continuing from yesterday’s denim discussion, back today with one more color conundrum. Grey jeans are another one that used to stump me! Sure, they’re easy to wear with neutrals – whiteblackmore greynavy blueburgundy, and even dark green. And they’re easy to dress down with a pair of sneakers. But how to keep them feeling fresh and feminine and prevent them from looking drab, especially when it’s still August?! Soft hues like blush pink, slate blue, and hints of purple are the answer!

Black Denim: Work Week to Weekend

As soon as summer starts to fade to fall, my wardrobe foundation slowly transitions from dresses and skirts to denim, denim, and more denim. Just like dresses, I firmly believe that you can never have too many pairs of jeans… Especially when you wear a pair almost every single day from September to May!

Tied with a Bow

Happy Tuesday, guys! How was your weekend? I meant to have this post up yesterday, but it was just one of those days where I felt like I was running on a hamster wheel from sunup to sundown. After getting back from Italy last weekend, it actually felt pretty nice to be back behind my computer last week. I was definitely ready for the weekend by the time Friday rolled around and I spent the weekend totally offline, which was lovely. I hadn’t been out in Chicago in almost a month (and I’ll be gone for the next few, too), so I desperately wanted to take advantage of a few of those sweet summertime nights that Chicago does so well. Friday night we checked out a newer spot in the West Loop, Federales. I’d been for lunch earlier this summer (highly recommend!), but it was fun for evening, too!
