Summer Wind

sw_1Hello!  It’s been a loooong time and I apologize!  There was major craziness and redecorating in my house during all of June and early July that I just did not have time to update my blog.  I was bad, I’m sorry.  I will be better about updating though; I got some bugs fixed on the blog so I won’t be putting it off anymore!  I feel like just yesterday I was complaining about how cold Chicago was and now it is hot!  It’s a good kind of hot with a dose of blazing sun, humid air and occasional cool rain that I won’t complain.   Time passes by so quickly and before you know it, these warm summer winds will be gone, replaced by colder temps.  Anyway, if you look at my outfit, you’ll see some familiar pieces.  I’m a big proponent of recycling items in your wardrobe.  For me if it is a one time wear piece, it really isn’t worth buying.  Versatility and reusability is a big factor in my shopping these days, and if it looks like there will be minimum use because of discomfort and inconvenience, I will put it down.   (I used to not do that and the result is a closet full of stuff I don’t wear much.)  I did some summer shopping though; I nabbed some tees, shoes, and bags during Zara’s semi-annual sale and even got a little something for Davy too.  Hope you all are having a grand summer!sw_4sw_2sw_6sw_9sw_7sw_8Vest: H&M, Top/Shoes: Forever 21, Shorts: Urban Outfitters, Bag: Zara

Ubiquitous

ubi_1Can’t really ever go wrong with the ultimate ubiquitous combo: the slouchy tee and distressed denim!  A definite laid back, effortless look  without skimping on comfort.  As you can see, I’ve been obsessed with hats lately.  My hair has been rather uninspiring so hats have been my go to accessories of late.  Paired this simple outfit with some lace up sandals and my leather pilot bag from rag & bone.ubi_2ubi_3ubi_4ubi_5ubi_6Tee: Akira, Shorts: Forever 21, Shoes: Free People Bag: Rag & Bone, Hat: Nordstrom Rack

Green Pastures

gp_1Happy Tuesday everyone!  I apologize for not posting often.  It’s been hard to because of work and schedule conflicts.  But I love sharing my ideas/style on my blog and I will continue to do so, just not all the time.  Last weekend, for Memorial Day, we got to visit family in central Illinois.  It was rather cool, but comfortable weather and we enjoyed catching up with loved ones.  It was amazing to see lush green everywhere during our trip.  I love spring time; all the vibrant colors brighten my mood!   When traveling, comfort is most important to me.  I paired a low key sleeveless tunic with panel shorts.  And you can never go wrong with a straw fedora on a bad hair day.  What are your go to items for travel wear?gp_2gp_3gp_4gp_5gp_8gp_7Top/Hat: Forever 21, Shorts: Akira, Shoes: Chinese Laundry, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
