midi dress






dress: Zara // clutch: 3.1 Phillip Lim // heels: Zara // earrings: Tiffany & Co. 

I wore this dress to an event Thanksgiving weekend. I wanted something with long sleeves, clean lines and mid-length. You know, it’s November and dressing for formal events can be difficult in the winter. Though, I love everything about this dress! It’s comfortable, chic and easy to style. I added a pop of snakeskin and kept my accessories simple.

November picks


1: Everlane – The Modern Point // 2: Diptyque – Luxurious Hand Balm // 3: Zara //4: CHANEL – Étincelle  // 5: J.Crew- Italian Leather Gloves // 6: Uniqlo | Lemaire Cardigan 

Here are a few of my top picks for November. I’ve been drawn to neutral knitwear and deep burgundy hues for accessories and makeup these past few weeks. Warm colors and elevated basics for the win!

suited for fall





trench: Burberry // sweater: Madewell // jeans: Armani Exchange // shades: Prada // moccasin boots: Isabel Marant Étoile

This fall has been unseasonably mild for Chicago – no complaints from me! Though a warmer and water-resistant trench is a versatile option to get your through the chillier days ahead. I just added this one to my closet, mostly because of the button-out quilted liner and detachable hood. So, it’s perfect for both warm and chilly temperatures. A win-win all around!

Runway Legging





cashmere sweater: Uniqlo // scarf: True Religion // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs // leggings: True Religion // boots: Prada 

I picked up these coated denim leggings and scarf last week when I attended the Michigan Ave. True Religion event. Their fall/winter collection has so many great pieces, but I just loved the fit of these ‘Runway Leggings’. Not only do they fit like a glove, but they’re comfortable and they look like leather. So, I decided on a neutral v-neck cashmere sweater and classic black booties to keep my look feeling polished, but with a bit of edge.

stand collar coat





coat: Uniqlo // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs // turtleneck: Uniqlo // pants: Armani Exchange // shoes: Merona // bag: Barneys New York 

I love the clean A-line shape and high collar of this coat that I picked up last week at the Uniqlo pre-opening event. It’s the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe and it’s a soft blend of cashmere and wool. As much as I dislike colder weather, I do enjoy the heavier textures, colors and accessories that go along with it.

white + black





shirt: Banana Republic // pants: Vince // shades: Prada // shoes: Vince // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim

Black and white is a great timeless go-to look. I’m loving the clean lines and sheer details on this shirttail –  a great alternative to a basic button-down. Oh, and did I mention I’m growing my hair out! I’ve had various pixie cuts for over 10 years, and now it’s time to try a short bob!

sleeveless turtleneck





knitwear: Banana Republic // pants: Vince // shoes: 3.1 Phillip Lim // bag: Barneys New York

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.
