New spectacles

No, it’s not vacation photos yet. Soon, I promise! Now you may recall sometime in May, I mentioned that I got new eyeglasses. A few astute readers noticed I was wearing them in my last post. And if you follow me on Instagram, they’re not new to you at all,… read more »

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas pullover time

December marks the month I whip out all of my winter-themed pullovers. What can I say, I just have a thing for them. They naturally make a great casual outfit with trousers or jeans, but it can be hard to dress them up, which I like to do from time… read more »

Fall day trip

Last weekend, it was so warm that we decided to get in a small road trip to Wisconsin. It’s one of our favorite things to do, and this year with buying the house and settling in and everything that comes with that we’ve had very little opportunities to do it.… read more »

An autumnal outfit

One thing I have been downright terrible about this year is outfit posts. I really need to be better, in part because it gives me an excuse to wear something on days I don’t otherwise have a reason to force me out of casual jeans and a sweater. So here… read more »

Carry on

If you’ve been a regular to my blog for some time, you may have noticed I’ve done very little outfit-related posts this year. I admit it, I’ve had some style ennui. Seeing as this blog revolves around style in a lot of ways (though I’ve never considered myself a “fashion… read more »

Coral on my mind {and my lips}

Hello everyone! I’ve been obsessed with the color coral for quite some time. I think since last spring! I got a gift certificate to Sephora for my birthday, and I decided to splurge on a lipstick I’d been wanting to try for awhile. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté in Rose… read more »

In blues & plaids outfits {and post-haircut}

Thursday evening, I got a haircut, as you know. I went for a shorter version of pretty much my usual, so basically a short middy. I had a long talk with my stylist about how I’d style a curl fluff on top, and she cut my hair so that I… read more »

Checkered birthday outfit

Happy 35th birthday to me! Here’s to my first outfit post in our new yard. I’m so excited to have an outdoor space now. It was a rather cold and miserable day (as often happens to us April birthday babies), so lots of wool was in order. Unfortunately you can’t… read more »

Vintage finds, AKA the only shopping I’ve done in months

Last weekend was the Chicagoland Vintage Clothing, Jewelry and Textile Show, an overwhelmingly large show about an hour away from Chicago in Elgin. Last year I had a great haul. This year I was a bit more restrained, even though this show, more than any others, often has the largest… read more »

Saturday evening outfit & haircut

We’re off to my mom’s tomorrow. So before we jet, I thought I’d post a quick outfit, mostly to show you all that I got a haircut last weekend! I’d been debating about chopping another few inches off for awhile, and went for it. Now you’ll never see me wearing… read more »

Autumn day outfit #2

Goodness, where has this week gone? That’s what happens when you have a cold. Suddenly it’s Friday and you feel like you haven’t accomplished anything. Since I haven’t had the time to write up a blog post, you’ll have to make do with another outfit post. Last weekend we went… read more »

An autumn day outfit

I haven’t done a real outfit post in awhile! Yes, that’s my Halloween beret. While I had my jacket on for most of the pictures in that post, these photos were taken the same day, just sans jacket and scarf. Cheeky, no? This is what I was wearing for the… read more »

Shoes and plaids

Hi everyone! Thank you all so, so much for your compliments on my beret and gloves set! I’m so glad you liked them. They really were fun… okay, except the fingers on the gloves, but you already knew that. 😉 This week is busy, busy, busy with projects, and I… read more »

Randolph Street Market Editor’s Choice for Charity

This weekend I was honored to participate in an event that was not only fun, but for a worthy cause! I was asked to be a part of the Randolph Street Market Editor’s & Designer’s Choice for Charity. Randolph Street Market is a big vintage and antique market that takes… read more »

The Vintage Bazaar

Yesterday was the Vintage Bazaar in Logan Square. It’s what they call a pop-up flea market and has been held in different locations. It’s an event that I somehow didn’t know about until May, and we were unable to attend the last one. So this was our first time. It… read more »

Stripes and polka dots outfit

Happy Friday! I just have a little outfit post for today. This was actually an outfit I wore a few weeks ago when it was ungodly hot out. I tried to be as cool and comfortable as possible, while wearing a new pair of shorts I bought. Outfit details: sailor… read more »

Back to life

I’m back! There aren’t enough exclamation points in the world to express how glad I am to have my life back after two weeks of working non-stop. But I made it through somehow, and now I have a lot of catching up to do! Because I didn’t get a chance… read more »

Outfits for going out on the town

Happy Thursday! I thought I’d share a couple of my outfits from the long 4th of July holiday weekend. We ran lots of errands and ate yummy food out all weekend. These were my outfits on Sunday. Now, you’ve already seen my new restyled shorts, but I took them out… read more »

Saturday’s errand outfit

This was the last weekend before the wedding, and it was full of errands and unexpectedly getting a dead car battery replaced. One of the errands took us to Wisconsin, where we stopped for lunch at the new Mars Cheese Castle. So all I have time for this week is… read more »

Little outfit details

I am nearly in panic mode about my wardrobe for Viva Las Vegas. This is in part due to the fact that we did an idiotic, massive spring cleaning last year of our home and everything in it, and that’s left me (actually both of us) with some ludicrous holes… read more »
