Sock it to me

As summer begins to wind down, (it’s winding down, right?) that means fall fashion is about to round the corner, and I for one am grateful. As much as I’ve loved donning floral prints and colorful shorts for the past few months, I’ve started to feel a bit receptive in my wardrobe routine. How many…

Summer in Europe Part I

It’s been quite a busy summer, specifically this past July! I’m still coming off a two week high from exploring eastern Europe with a close friend from my days studying abroad in London during our junior year of college. During our time abroad, we traveled as much as possible but knew that we’d need to…

Express Yourself

Last month I had the opportunity to work on a spring look for Express, and today I’m finally able to share a little bit more about the look. The timing of the partnership couldn’t have been better, as spring was finally making an appearance in Chicago and my closet was in desperate need of something…

Walk the Line

Ah, what a month it’s shaping up to be! Just about half way through June and it feels like summer, which just began, can already be considered over. The best way to not lose sight of what’s right in front of me, is to just keep walking the line. Today I’m doing just that in…

Garden Guy

Remember when I said I’d be manifesting spring through my wardrobe…. well it’s not working. (case in point, it snowed on Monday :/) Although it might not be as warm as I’d like, I’m still feeling inspired by florals with another look, similar to the one from last week.  Shooting these pictures at Garflield Park…

Flower Child

I know what you’re thinking… flowers for spring… groundbreaking. All joking aside, flowers do feel pretty groundbreaking, especially when it’s still snowing here in April. Again, I’ve got to manifest spring in my wardrobe in order to get in the spirit. This shot was actually taken at Chicago’s Garfield Park Conservatory because it’s one of…

Spring It On

Have you ever wanted something to happen so badly that you’ll do just about anything to manifest it? That’s me with… everything spring this year! One of the only major downsides of being a Chicago resident is a never ending winter and this year is no exception. It feels like it’s never going to warm…

It’s about time

It’s been a busy March so far, with little time to put together some blog posts, but it’s about time I change that. Back in November and December, I  showcased an up and coming watch company based right here out of Chicago, Wolfpoint. Wolfpoint’s timepieces have local roots and design elements that come together and…

Spring Awakening

What a month February was…. the shortest month always feels the longest right? These monthly “check ins” on 2018 are equally rewarding and frustrating at the same time. It’s always a good idea to check in on yourself and your goals, but when they’re not going your way, it’s not so fun. February was a…

The Write Way

Maintaining a blog requires a few things…. creativity, photos and of course, writing. I’m no author, but I’ve enjoyed the process of improving my writing skills through blogging. I’ve always appreciated the art of writing, and it’s emotional sentiment. Whether you’re doodling to relieve stress, keeping a travel journal or sending a thoughtful note, there’s…
