Tie-Waist Shorts

Tie Waist ShortsShorts // Blouse (similar) // Jacket (similar) // Jacket (similar)

Hello ladies! and Happy Friday!  I was initially going to post this Saturday, but I was actually prepared and I just couldn’t wait to share these tie-waist shorts with you guys! (Is it tie-waist or tie-waisted?! Please let me know!)  This week was the first official week of summer which means shorts, bathing suits, summer dresses….the list goes on!

Lately, I’ve seen many bloggers in tie-waisted shorts or just colored shorts AND I LOVE THEM!  BUT…..I am quite petite (eye rolls are accepted) and often can’t find a pair of shorts that fit.  Read all about my distressed cropped flare dilemma in my last post.

White Denim Skirts

How to style a white denim skirt.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Halfway to the weekend!  I’m excited to share this post with you guys on my white denim obsession.  I LOVE white denim and distressed denim lately, hey give me white distressed denim with a cropped flare and I will be your best friend!  But seriously….if you can find me a pair of white denim cropped flare pants that won’t break the bank, I seriously will be.  You see…… I am vertically challenged and every pair I purchased ended up being the length of normal pants, not cropped pants. UGHHHHH

ANYWAYS, my cropped flare struggles aside, I am LOVING white denim skirts lately!  I scored this one for $40 from Ann Taylor a few months back!

Monday Must-Haves Vol. 1


Happy Monday everyone! I’m so excited for two reasons today. One, I just shot some new looks and I cannot wait to show you guys! Two, I am starting a new series today called Monday Must Haves!

SOOOO….summer has hit Chicago and…….the summer staples are AHHH-mazing!

I’ve listed some of the trends and must haves I have been obsessing over for pool/beach days!

How to Style Printed Pants

Printed Pants


It’s only Wednesday (says the teacher with 3 days of school left) but I’m discussing prints and who doesn’t love talking about prints on Wednesday?!  Oh, maybe it’s just me haha

I love, love, LOVE printed pants!  They are EVERYWHERE right now and I can’t get enough.  Why do I love them so much?


Spring Florals

Floral Kimono
Happy Saturday everyone!  Found out some good news this week.  My best friend is ENGAGED!  Add another wedding to our list, guess we are just at that age.  But I am seriously so EXCITED to celebrate when they return home.  Recently I’ve been obsessed with florals, which is a move from my typical neutral wardrobe.  (How do I always end up with gray, white, or nude?!)  These spring florals are fun and flirty and I am fixated.  Couldn’t pass up the alliteration there. *cough cough nerdy moment cough cough*

Sunshine, Ruffles, and West Loop

White Ruffle Dress

Chicago weather has been all over the place lately, so when I get a chance to break out my spring clothes I take full advantage of it.  Jim and I headed to West Loop to get some yummy and oh so healthy elote from Green Street Smoked Meats.

If you have note tried it, you must!
