no more Marc by Marc Jacobs!?

marcbymarc-1

Rumor has it, Marc by Marc Jacobs is being discontinued… I know, such a big bummer! Apparently the label will be absorbed into the Marc Jacobs Collection, with the intention of providing a more unified brand and solid aesthetic. There will be a range of merchandise with price points appeasing to all shoppers and lovers of MBMJ….yes, so remain calm! No date has been announced yet, so go grab you favorite pieces before they’re gone!

A favorite look of mine: blazer, denim and pumps. This is classic and will easily transition from season to season by switching up a few basic pieces. I always think it’s a great idea to invest in quality wardrobe staples that will last and remain timeless.

Even if I do wear sunglasses year round, it’s always nice to add a new pair to your collection. Here are a few that can easily be worn year after year, and with a variety of outfits. I like to think of a pair of sunglasses as I do a great investment bag; quality over quantity.

Time to pack away that down puffer coat and switch to a lighter trench coat. I’m SO excited to do just that! A trench coat is a wardrobe staple and such a versatile piece. I suggest finding something that can be worn to the office and with a pair of jeans and sneakers on the weekend. Here are a few options that are classic and perfect for this warmer weather.

linen shirt: Vince // scarf: Zara // shades: Prada // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim // shoes: Vince 

Keeping it simple and neutral for this warmer weather! I love this lightweight linen long sleeve tee from Vince. It’s casual and goes perfect with a pair of black skinny jeans and slip-on sneakers. Everything just seems so much easier and better when the weather is nice. Ha!

Double Perfection Lumière

The Double Perfection Lumière from Chanel is hands-down my favorite powder makeup. I’ve been using it for years and love the natural and flawless effect it provides. It’s medium to full coverage, but for a lighter full-face application I use a kabuki brush and then use the provided sponge for the areas I need a bit more coverage – under eye area, blemishes, etc.

The weather in Chicago has been so warm these past few days! With nicer weather, comes lighter colors and fabrics. Hooray!  A crisp white button down with bright blue jeans and loafers are perfect to transition into the warmer weather. Or, until it’s time for sandals!
