While I love summer and it’s my favorite time of year, I do look forward to wearing layers as the weather cools down. I picked up this leather jacket a few weeks ago when I was in Bruges, Belgium. I’ve been looking for a leather jacket for awhile and unexpectedly found this one when out shopping one afternoon. I love the clean lines and subtle texture; it’s easily dressed up or down with jeans and heels or boots. What are some of you favorite go-to pieces in-between seasons?
I love the look of an oversized cotton shirt with a pair of skinny jeans. Clean lines and easy styling for the win! Since these jeans are bright blue, I kept it simple with classic accessories and colors. I mean, you can never go wrong with a great pair of loafers and sunnies!
Who doesn’t love a great bag? I choose quality over quantity for the majority of my wardrobe, especially when it comes to an investment bag. I’ve recently come to love Bag Borrow or Steal, an online platform to borrow and share designer bags. It’s such a great way to experience different styles, designers and refresh your accessories. All you have to do is create an account (promotion for new users) and you’re a few clicks away from designer bags shipped to your door! Enjoy!

Winter has really arrived in Chicago, as I write this post it’s a only 9°F/-13°C outside. Hence my inspiration for heavy knitwear and extra-warm accessories. I’m really loving that Mongolian fur scarf! Cold weather always calls for a moody lip, and what better than a deep plum from Chanel.
Nothing is easier than a black tee and a pair of blue jeans – especially when you can decide on what you want to wear! I love the bold pop of these jeans, they look so fresh for spring and add a nice amount of color to my look.
A flowy blouse and jeans are easy for spring weather. To keep this look simple, I accessorized with classic pieces: black pumps, black bag and black sunnies.
Where did the warm Spring weather go? Temperatures have dipped back to the mid-thirties with snow flurries… c’mon, Chicago! So until it warms up and the flowers begin to bloom, I’ll wear my floral loafers inside and hope for Spring!
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!
Keeping it simple with a monochromatic look. To me, all black is a great go-to, especially in winter when you’re mostly wearing layers and knitwear. To keep it interesting I added texture and a bright pop of cobalt blue. Have a great Monday!
Layering a vest over heavy knitwear is a simple way to jazz up any sweater and denim combination. Adding a few black accessories keeps my look effortless and polished. What are some of your styling tips for knitwear?
