I’m generally not big into trends, but I’m loving the sleeveless knit turtlenecks and backpack bags I’m seeing everywhere this fall. These are both great staples, and will transition well into winter and even spring (if you live in Chicago, all these seasons generally feel the same). I decided on a classic pointy flat and simple accessories.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I began mine with UNIQLO at their Train Takeover Event! Yep, it was on the train and better than any ride I’ve ever experienced on the CTA! UNIQLO is opening their new store in Chicago on October 23rd, so mark your calendars!

It’s not always easy deciding what to wear in between seasons. Temps are all over the place, and how many layers and shoes can you really fit into your work bag? Lately, I’ve been choosing neutral colors, flowy fabrics and comfortable shoes. Keeping it simple and versatile. What are some of your favorite pieces to wear this time of year?
Monday inspiration#1: the architecture of Roma! A perfect balance of clean lines, ornate details and pastel pink.
dress: Armani Exchange // ring: Anjolee – diamond eternity // bag: COS // shoes: Vince Camuto // earrings: Tiffany & Co.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to create a custom ring through Anjolee. They are an online jewelry retailer offering customized pieces, made from diamonds, precious metals and gemstones. I was excited to look through all of their jewelry, and decided on this diamond eternity ring. All of their pieces can be customized according to preference of diamond, gemstone quality, carat size and metal. I submitted my ring size and gemstone preference (diamond/cz). My experience with Anjolee was wonderful and the whole process took just a couple of weeks for my made-to-order ring to arrive at my doorstep.
This post was a collaboration with Anjolee. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting collaborations with Taffeta and Cedar!

I picked up this dress earlier in the summer and it quickly turned into one of my favorite LBD! The drape is simple, yet it’s what makes the dress so interesting and elegant. I love the clean lines and breezy flow – it’s perfect for these hot summer days!

Black & white is always a great go-to combination. It’s both simple, chic and carries easily from season to season.

I’ve been wearing dresses almost every single day this summer. When I saw this fun abstract print shift dress, I knew it was meant to be. I love the bold print, clean lines and back keyhole detail. This will be easy to dress down with a pair of flats and simple cross body bag!
