all black with texture

scarf: Gucci similar // jacket: Vince // belt: Prada similar // pants: Massimo Dutti // boots: Zara // bag: Prada // shades: Prada 

A black blazer is a wardrobe staple. It pulls a look together and can easily be dressed up or down. For texture I added an oversized scarf and cinched the waist with a slim belt. I’ve been growing out my hair for a few months. I’m sticking with it, though it’s reached an awkward length. I’ve been wearing it curly and occasionally wrapping it up with silk scarves to get me through the process!

neck scarf





scarf: Dior similar // shirt: Old Navy // pants: COS // bag: Barneys New York // shades: Céline similar // shoes: Zara

I’ve always loved accessorizing with scarves. They add just the right amount of texture and interest to any look. I tied this silk scarf similar to a necktie and kept my look simple and chic. A fitted tee, wide-leg wool pants, and streamline flats for a polished look.

moody colors and textures






fur: Love Token // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs similar // turtleneck: Uniqlo // jeans: Vince // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim similar // boots: Prada

We had some really cold temps this past weekend in Chicago. Cold enough to get out my puffer coat and warmer layers. For this look, I kept it classic with dark colors and elevated basics. You can never go wrong with cozy turtlenecks, boots, and extra-warm layers when you live in the Midwest!

sweater weather






sweater: IRO // pants: Armani Exchange // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim similar // shades: Céline // boots: Prada 

 It’s been a pretty mild fall in Chicago – warmer temps and there are still green leaves on the trees! I’ve been able to layer different knits and I’ve just started wearing boots and sweaters. I love the large knit and texture of this sweater from IRO. It’s just the right amount of warmth, and look at those extra long sleeves! What are some of your favorite knits and sweaters this season?

frayed blazer






blazer: Zara love this one // jeans: Rag & Bone // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs // shoes: Zara similar // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim

If you haven’t noticed, black is my favorite color to wear. It’s classic, effortless and chic. I enjoy seeing color, just not wearing it. I picked up this frayed blazer a few weeks ago to add to my collection of black jackets and blazers…becasue they all look completely different. Seriously, they do! I feel like this will be a fall favorite and I can’t wait to layer it over some heavier knitwear.

October is for boots





leather jacket: ASOS similar // shirt: Vince // jeans: Old Navy // shades: Céline // boots: Zara 

It’s October, I guess that means it’s time to pack away the summer sandals and switch to boots and close-toed shoes for six long months.  I do love a classic boot, jeans and comfy sweater or tee. A simple, yet polished look for the weekend or even the office. What boots do you have your eye on this fall?

overalls & gold loafers

Overalls, a crisp button down and loafers are the perfect combination of comfort and easy styling. It’s beginning to feel and look like fall in Chicago, so it’s time to start making that switch to longer sleeves, layers and boots. What are some of your go-to pieces when transitioning into the cooler fall weather?

stripes & fur-lined slides




top: A.P.C. // jeans: Old Navy // slides: Zara love this pair! // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim // shades: Céline

Stripes and denim are a classic combo. I love the button detail on the shoulder, it’s a little pop of asymmetry and extra interest. This shirt is the perfect weight and softness for cooler temps, too! Slides and mules are still big thing and I love them, as I mentioned here. So, I had to add these fluffy shoes into my fall wardrobe!

boxy basics






shirt: Zara similar // jeans: Old Navy // shades: Prada // lip: NARS // clutch: 3.1 Phillip Lim similar // loafers: Gaetano Oliva similar

I love the look of an oversized boxy button down and jeans. It’s comfortable, yet still looks polished with the right accessories. I picked up these nude loafers in Rome last month and seem to be wearing them on repeat these past few days. Happy Wednesday!
