Dominica grey melange


The unseasonably chilly weather yesterday inspired me to comb the interwebs for knitwear, and I stumbled upon this beautiful creation from Acne Studios. Yes, it’s July, but this is perfect for surviving another Chicago winter! The thought of wearing a ski mask out of necessity crossed my mind several times last year, though sporting one in an urban environment has a little creep factor to it.  This chic scarf, hood, and beanie melange is perfect for the colder months ahead!

linen track shorts





shirt: Zara (similar here) // shorts: Madewell // shades: Prada // sandals: United Colors of Benetton (similar here) // clutch: 3.1 Phillip Lim //  lip: YSL – Rose Stiletto

I love these linen – cotton track shorts from Madewell; they’re a great mix of sporty and chic. Over the weekend, I wore these to a BBQ with a half-tucked tee and sandals and they were perfect for relaxing with friends. Have a great Monday!

black & white paisley





tee: Old Navy // shades: Ray-Ban // pants: Old Navy // bag: Zara // sandals: Armani Exchange (similar here) // lip: YSL – Rose Stiletto

I came across these oh-so-comfy paisley pants last week when I popped into Old Navy to pick up a few basics. Now, I’ve never really been a huge fan of the paisley print, but these somehow work. Probably because they’re black and white! The cinched ankle and drapey fit are perfect for a hot summer day. . . and my upcoming travel, but you’ll hear more about that later!

Harry’s – razor set


// Harry’s //

Attention ladies! I’ve just discovered the razor for you! Yes, this Harry’s razor is borrowed from the boys, but who cares about that. This 5 blade (German engineered steel) razor will give you super smooth legs and it’s easy to handle so you don’t get those little nicks. This is the Truman set, and it’s available in a few other colors that aren’t pink for only $15!

cap-sleeve blouse





blouse: H&M // cutoffs: Armani Exchange //  shades: Prada // sandals: Zara (similar here) // lip: YSL – Rose Stiletto 

The weather has been gorgeous these past few days in Chicago, which means I’m out and about as much as possible. I love this little cap-sleeve blouse I picked up at H&M. The material is super thin and a great piece to dress up or wear with cutoffs for running around the city. Have a great Monday!
