In addition, a few upgrades like a new pair of sunnies, little black dress and medallion necklace will be staple pieces and definitely on constant rotation in the coming months. These knee high boots were one of my purchases from last months Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I absolutely love them - best of all, they are all weather proof and remind me of the classic Stuart Weitzman boots. I have also linked similar versions of my picks in order to give you options at different price points. Wishing you a wonderful Thursday! xx

Henry & Belle







Denim: Henry & Belle c/o | Heels: BCBG | Camisole: Forever 21 | Blazer: Forever 21 | Bag: Similar here | Watch: Michele

Recently, I stopped by the Henry & Belle office in downtown Chicago to find a new pair of denim. There were so many to choose from! We decided on the 'Addison Super Skinny Ankle' as they are perfect for the upcoming Fall season - thank you, Lila, for all of your help! They are so comfortable for days spent running around the city and easily transition into an outfit for evenings out. While at the Henry & Belle office, they explained to me that all of their jeans get even better with wear, so I know that these will remain a staple piece in my wardrobe for seasons to come! Something else that I love is that with each jean purchased, Henry & Belle will donate to a cause featured on their website. For more details, check out the cause page here. xx

Little White Dress






 Dress: Asos | Bracelets: J.Crew and Waiting on Martha | Straw Bag: Mar Y Sol | Sandals: Rebecca Minkoff

Since purchasing this little white dress last month, it has been my go-to. The fit and style could not be more perfect for Summer. I wore this dress on multiple occasions while at home in Connecticut and most recently on Saturday for brunch here in Chicago. Although I love Fall, I am soaking in the last few weeks of Summer as much as possible. I know I will be missing my little summer dresses right away! xx

Feeling Peachy






Sweater: J.Crew (similar here) | White Blouse: Forever 21 | Denim: AG Jeans (also love these) | Sandals: Rebecca Minkoff | Sunnies: Ray-Ban | Watch: Michele

The past few days have started to feel like Fall in Chicago, but I am not quite ready to pack away my bright Summery clothes. Although I love the deeper tones found in Fall and Winter clothing, the Summer weather has felt especially short this year causing me to crave brighter colors more than usual. In fact, I absolutely love my white jeans and am thinking of wearing them after Labor Day by pairing them with brown booties and my trusty field jacket. This pastel sweater from J.Crew is one of my favorites. I wasn't able to find the exact version online, but have linked a similar version above. What items from your Summer wardrobe are you looking to transition into the Fall season? xx

Keeping it Organized

 


 
 

Print: Design Darling | Paper Clips and Agenda: Kate Spade | Bowl: Anthropologie (similar here) | Card Holder: Kate Spade | Nail Polish: Essie (Fiji) | Lamp: Target | Candle: Diptyque | Watch: Michele

Since I was a little girl, I have always had a special excitement about organizing. Out of habit, this time of year still causes me to be on the lookout for items to keep me on task. With a new agenda and bright desk area set up in my apartment, I feel ready and eager for the coming months. I can't help but truly think, the best is yet to come! What things inspire you to stay organized? xx

At Ease






Blouse: Francesca's Collections (similar here) | Denim Shorts: 7FAM | Hat: J.Crew | Earrings: M2 Chicago | Sandals: Rebecca Minkoff (similar here)

This is one of my favorite photo shoots that I have done with yet. The background is simple but just so happened to match the color scheme of my outfit, Pat was making me laugh the entire time and we made it home just before a rain storm hit - quite the little adventure! It is always so much fun when taking pictures, but as other bloggers know, you tend to get interesting stares from people walking by. So, we decided to poke some fun at what we were doing and I love that it truly captured how this outfit makes me feel - comfortable and at ease. xx

The Small Things




Mug: Anthropologie | Candle: Kate Spade | Nail Polish: Essie "Ballet Slippers" (one of my favorite's!) | Makeup Case: Tory Burch (similar here and here) | Hand Lotion: Tocca via Anthropologie

In general, I have always found that the smallest things can make my day brighter. Whether it is a new bag to hold your makeup, scented candle or sitting down with a cup of tea, there is something about those moments that just make everything better. We all have different jobs, responsibilities and commitments, but everyone deserves a little something special. Even if it is a coffee break where you can clear your mind of worries for fifteen minutes, it is quite incredible what those small moments for yourself can do. What helps to make your day brighter? xx

Summer Nights



 





Dress: J.Crew Factory (also love this one and this one) | Sweater: Ralph Lauren (similar here) | Sandals: Jack Rogers | Bracelet: Waiting on Martha | Watch: Michele

These pictures were taken on my last evening at home, a couple of weeks ago. My parents and I decided to walk down to a sweet spot to get some ice-cream after finishing dinner - my eyes may have been bigger than my stomach. I love Summer on the coast, as the days are warm and the nights cool down quite a bit. I put on a simple striped dress and wrapped a sweater around my waist as an extra layer. In all honesty, this blog has become more to me than just a creative outlet. It has developed into a photo diary where I can share some of my favorite moments. I know that when I am missing my family or wanting to look back on times spent with them, this blog will act as a way to do just that. Thank you for following along, it is so much fun to share my personal style and inspirations with you! xx
