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 Forward, Fall Back

As I mentioned earlier this month, spring is all supposed to be all about rebirth and having that awakening that would cure me of that funk February put me in. The month of March is almost over and let’s just say… I’m still in need of that cure. We recently just experienced Daylight Savings Time…

De-Briefing

One of my favorite things about fashion and clothes, is that with each new step in life, comes a new stylish privilege. Moving to Chicago from Florida meant getting a new coat, snow boats, and other winter friendly items. With a new job, came the valid excuse to finally get a work bag or in…

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…

Turtle Time

If you can’t tell by my face in this photo, I’m OVER it, and by it, I  mean the fact that it’s back to snow flurries and decimal temps in Chicago. At this point, 3 layers, daily uber rides and a winter coat are all necessary to survive. Another necessity this season for me has…

Checked Out

With February just days away, I’ve officially checked out of January. January was our trial month of 2018, right? So far, so good, so I  guess I’ll renew my subscription for the rest of the year. Another thing I’m always renewing my subscription on is Netflix my vintage buffalo check shirt. Although that lumberjack or…

Grey Days

Ever since the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise hit the world, I  seriously cannot think of anything else when I’m wearing more than one grey piece in an outfit. This look is more two shades of grey, but I’m loving them both. Grey has always been and perhaps always be, the perfect neutral int the…

Take Flight in Aviate

Like many of you, travel is a big part of my life. I’m either looking for my next dream destination online or already sitting at the airport, deciding whether I’m going to eat Chili’s Too or if I’ll be dropping a small fortune on tabloids before boarding my flight. Travel wear has seen its share…

Staying Merry

As I mentioned last week, the holidays are fast approaching. It seems like they near closer and closer each year. As the holiday rush gets even crazier, I think it’s important to think about how to maintain sanity in perhaps the most stressful time of year. This year I’m staying as level headed as possible…
