Urban Escape

ue_1Happy Thursday!  Yes, yes I’m very behind in posting, but here’s one I want to share.  Last week, my sister was in town and our family (minus the men) went on a jaunt to the city.  We walked for miles, had afternoon tea at the Peninsula (which I highly recommend), and just had a mini sight-seeing romp in the city.  I made sure to wear something comfortable; I’ve had experience with blisters from poor choice of footwear before.  My shoes were awesome, I will literally wear those sandals until they break apart.  I probably should have worn some dressy shorts instead of a skirt – they don’t call Chicago the windy city for nothing!  But all in all, it was a lovely day which I got to spend with my loved ones. ue_2ue_3ue_4ue_5sismom Isn’t my mother lovely?

Periwinkle

pw_1Happy Wednesday!  I can’t believe summer is halfway over.  I swear time literally flies by so quickly.  Life has been busy and sometimes I need to stop and breathe and appreciate the little things.  I’m looking forward to some flurry of upcoming activities that is non-work related.  Hopefully I will be able to capture some good moments; I’ve been really bad about taking pictures.  It’s not that I don’t want to, I just forget.  Back in the day, I used to do a lot of work outfits in my style posts because I used to work Sundays, which Davy had off.  So we could take a moment in the morning and take pictures.  Now my schedule is a little more hectic so I can’t do that anymore.  This periwinkle stripe shirt is good for work or play.  I dressed this down with shorts for a casual look; but switch out the shorts with black pants and it’s a good work day outfit.pw_2pw_3pw_4pw_5pw_6Top/Hat: Forever 21, Shorts: Lucca Couture, Shoes: Zara, Bag: Stylenanda

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
