Spring Finds

snapbackHappy Monday!  I can’t wait til Chicago gets a full blast of real warm weather.  We’ve been experiencing the torrential Spring down pours, but the the temperatures have been still chilly and lower than normal.  But that doesn’t mean I can’t prepare for warm weather, and what better way to do that then update the wardrobe?!!  You guys know I love hats and that includes these snapbacks from H&M.  The polka dots are full of whimsy and I love the bright colors on the white one!  cozyteesI think as the weather gets warm, I’m going to live in these basic tees with jeans or cutoffs.  My style has been evolving, and I’m really into simple, effortless looks lately.  They’re paper thin and so comfy.  From Akira and James Perse.newsneaksCouldn’t forget a little something for Davy.  Davy loves simple and easy and these sneakers are the epitome of that.   A great, basic everyday kind of shoe!  From Marshalls.fedora When it comes to hats, I usually tend to shop in the boys or men’s section because they have so much more variety!  I love this chambray fedora with the red ribbon detail; so perfect for Spring and Summer!  From Nordstrom Rack.  coolshirtI love interesting, unique pieces and I had to have this shirt.  The arm is faux leather and the rest of the shirt is a very subtle python print done so well in a demure white color!  From Akira.

The Other Boyfriend

tob_1Happy Friday everyone!  Here is another boyfriend jeans look for those of you who like comfort and simplicity.  As great as heels look on all of us, there are just days when you want to kick back and not have to worry about aching feet.  Lucky for us, sneakers are so on trend right now that you can be stylish and comfortable at the same time.  (I really hope this trend is here to stay!)  I must admit, it took me a while to embrace sneakers when taking pictures since I’m short and you just don’t get those long lines.  But I’m embracing it fully; it’s just so comfortable.  I love the light wash on this pair of jeans; it’s great for warm weather.  I paired it with a metallic sweater since the temps here have been cool.   The Adidas Superstar sneakers are a classic for boys and girls of all ages, and I can’t wait to get mine a little worn and dirty!tob_2tob_3tob_4tob_5tob_6tob_7Sweater/Jeans: Forever 21, Hat: American Eagle Outfitters, Shoes: Adidas, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

Eclectic

DSC_0218Happy Saturday!  Today is a bit cool here in Chicago, and I swear the weather has been such a tease.   But I think we have finally gotten away from the grasps of winter here and I’m extremely happy about that.  My outfit today is a bit eclectic.  There is a mix of sporty, comfy, sexy, and urban.  Eclectic can be an eccentric mish-mash of random things, but at times it can be a unique mix that just go great together.  My Redopin tunic dress from Yesstyle is insanely comfortable; and the mesh detail is so eye catching!  I covered up a bit with this studded H&M denim vest and finished off with these gladiator wedges from Forever 21.  I got a thumbs up from the hubby; he said he liked my outfit because it looked normal!  Boys… DSC_0167DSC_0230DSC_0156DSC_0194DSC_0158Dress: Redopin from Yesstyle, Vest: H&M, Shoes: Forever21, Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Sunglasses: Akira
