I’m back from a wonderful vacation to Croatia, Bosnia and Italy – view the highlights on @taffetaandcedar. Days before I left for Italy, I picked up these wide-leg pants at Uniqlo…and I love them! They are perfect for travel and can be dressed up or down. I wore them to dinner a couple of times and for our train ride from Rome to Venice, which is about 3.5 hours. What are some of your go-to pieces for travel?

An all-black look is a no brainier. It’s chic, effortless, and easy to put together. So why not add a touch of gold for a pop of color and excitement, you know?! I’ve been wearing more scarves these past few weeks, too. It’s a perfect summer hair solution for short hair and adds some texture to any look.

jumpsuit: Old Navy // shades: Prada // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim // shoes: Zara similar

 I love the wide-leg on this flowy jumpsuit!  Rompers and jumpsuits are always a summer go-to for me. You can easily dress them up for a night out with heels, or go casual with flats for the office. I picked this one up at Old Navy last week…it’s on sale now! Where are some of your favorite rompers/jumpsuits from?

I love having short hair, it’s been variations of short for over 10 years. I tried growing it out this past winter and it was torture  uncomfortable. Though in the warmer months I like having it out of my face, especially when it’s humid or while I’m at the beach. Since I’m not a fan of bobby pins and clips, my solution is a large scarf. Yes, it’s that simple and pretty chic, too!

It’s still chilly in Chicago, so I’m wearing layers and pretending it’s spring. All white always feels fresh and extra chic to me. I added a heel and pink lip to keep my look feeling extra feminine. Black shades and a blazer with clean lines for the win! Let’s get Monday started!

You can never go wrong when pairing black and dark denim together for a look. I love the layered panels and flow of this silk blouse from COS. They are so good at chic pieces with interesting details! A neutral bag and shoes add just the right amount of texture and subtle color. What are some of your go-to color combinations for Spring?
