bf_1Happy Monday!  We had a taste of spring with warm weather over the weekend, and now we’re back to the big chill.  This cold spell is supposed to go on through out this week, and well I’m not surprised.  On to my outfit: I recently got this pair of boyfriend jeans and I love it, although it’s a bit big.  I looked for a smaller size, but this style must be really popular since I’ve had a hard time finding a smaller size in the stores or online!  But it’s so comfy and looks so laid back that I absolutely adore it.  I styled it with laced high-heels to give it some sex appeal.  My top is really simple, but I love the faux leather shoulder detail to give it some futuristic zing!  I don’t know if you can tell, but I got a hair cut!  My last hair cut was back in October and my hair has been steadily growing and although I love it super long, it’s so hard to style because the mass weighs it down.  I was being  so lazy and putting it up on a top knot all the time, I had to get a trim.  I added my NYC snap back to give it a sporty, chic look.  What do you think?bf_2bf_3bf_5bf_6bf_7bf_0Top/Shoes: Zara, Jeans/Bag: Forever 21, Hat: H&M, Necklace: ASOS

Light Shadow

ss_1Happy Monday!  Today is cloudy and a bit dreary here in Chicago, but yesterday I got to enjoy a nice Sunday.  It was warm enough to go bare legged and I even got out the sandals too!  I kept the color play muted with shades of gray/white and just added a brighter lip for a pop of color.  Although I love to experiment with bright and dark colors for lips, I think soft, cool pinks suit me the best.  I love this skirt.  It’s comfortable and the marble print on it is so unique.  And as I had expected, my Deena & Ozzy sandals were comfortable enough to walk around in all day.  Truly a great buy.ss_2ss_3ss_4ss_5ss_7ss_8 Sweater/Skirt: Forever 21, Shoes: Urban Outfitters, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Sunglasses: Akira

tx_0Happy Wednesday!  I apologize for the hiatus, I’ve been a bit busy and I was procrastinating.  But I am back and ready to roll!  We’ve been blessed finally with some sunshine and spring weather!  It makes me so happy, but Chicago hasn’t quite made up its mind on whether spring is here to stay.  I loved that I was able to go bare legged this day; it has been forever.  My outfit is very F21 heavy, but it was a cute ensemble that worked well, so I didn’t care.  I actually had a fur jacket I wanted to show in the mix, but it was so warm that I didn’t need it.  I like all the different textures here: the fuzziness of the sweater, the velvet print on the skirt, and the pebbled (faux) leather of the clutch.  Textures are one sartorial way to mix it up even if you go monochrome.  I didn’t here; I wanted to welcome spring with color! tx_3tx_5tx_2tx_1tx_6Sweater/Skirt/Shoes: Forever 21, Bag: Stylenanda
