I was lucky to have another opportunity to create a piece of custom clothing with eShakti. They are an online women’s apparel company offering sizes 0-36W and custom clothing. I wanted to create something light and comfortable to wear on my vacation to Tulum, Mexico. I decided a sleeveless jumpsuit in lightweight denim was the way to go! I submitted my measurements and was able to specify sleeve length, neckline, hemline, and whether or not to add pockets. My experience with eShaktiwas great – easy to order and super convenient. I have a custom jumpsuit for my trip and the entire process from design to arriving at my doorstep took less than two weeks!
I love the relaxed vibes of summer – soaking up the sun and taking it easy! Dresses, shorts, and sandals have been my go-to this season. While keeping it pretty simple, I like to add a red lip to bring it all together. I was excited to add Rimmel London’s ‘Call the Shots’ lipstick into my summer makeup routine. It’s a matte finish and provides long-lasting color, both important to survive the summer heat. A win-win for any look!

And just like that, it’s summertime in Chicago! It’s been in the mid to upper 80s for the past week. Summer is my season – sandals, dresses, beaches, patios, etc. This breezy dress is perfect for this type of weather. It’s lightweight cotton and has just the right amount of lace for a flirty detail. I’m still growing out my hair, though it’s not long enough to pull back yet. So silk wraps and bobby pins are my go-to.
Summer slides are making a comeback and are on the trend list everywhere. I remember wearing my Adidas slides on repeat in the late 90’s. Those are still totally cool and on trend now! Here are a few of my favorites – classic, sporty, and chic.
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!
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 cropped jacket over the weekend and can’t wait to add it into my fall routine. I love the clean line and subtle texture it has; it’s easily dressed up or down with jeans and heels or loafers. What are some of you favorite go-to pieces in-between seasons?
A pair of distressed shorts and simple tee are perfect for summer. To keep it polished, edit your casual look with a pair of slides, blazer, and simple clutch or backpack. I love minimalism and clean lines, so I went with neutrals and elevated basics.
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?
I love the clean lines and deep v-neck on this shift dress. We will be attending a wedding in Croatia soon, and I thought this would be a great dress to wear to the rehearsal dinner. It’s classic, comfortable and has just the right about of sass!
Who doesn’t want flawless looking legs in the summer? Laying out at the beach soaking up the sunshine is a true love of mine. Though with a busy schedule, it’s difficult to always find the time to maintain a summer glow. I was excited to try Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs over the weekend. It is easy to apply and dries quickly. I applied a thin layer to both legs before heading out for the day – wearing white! My legs felt smooth and flawless! A great addition to any summer beauty routine!
