Sweet Nothings







The Reformation Skirt / Paul and Joe top (old but love this style) / Arizona Birkenstocks 


I have been eyeing this skirt from The Reformation like a hawk for weeks since it sold out in my size (almost immediately). I wouldn't normally be into the 'scallop' trend but about a year ago I saw this picture and have been obsessing with channeling the look ever since.

Summer of Seventies





Reformation Wrap Top (similar) / Vintage Levi's / Joie Sandals / Chloe Purse

I have a weird feeling that this is probably what my mom looked like in the 70s. You know that thing all girls say about never turning into their mothers? Well, fuck.

Pinking of You





Ok I'm not going to lie, I'm wearing this skirt ONLY because I love it. It has been cold as shit in Chicago lately. Full disclosure, I am not warm in this picture. 

Chicago, I'm super disappointed.

Vested








Club Monaco Top / Forever 21 Vest / Frame Denim / Dolce Vita Heels (old) 


I never truly understood these sleeveless vest jackets from a functional point of view until this past week in Chicago. Hot cold hot cold hot cold. One minute I was sweating and then next I was freezing. So weird, I must be going through menopause or something. Sleeveless vests! The solution for early onset menopause!

Hang Ten






We're starting to prepare for a nice little vacation in June and I can think of nothing else except summer clothing. I discovered Hawaiian brand Ten Tomorrow and fell in love with their Tamara Kaftan for it's versatility.

I'm thinking about how I'll wear it as a beach coverup this summer but for now layered it over another dress for a sunny day out. When it's chillier I'll throw it on over a pair of leather leggings (because who am I kidding, it could snow any day here).

Be sure to check out the rest of Ten Tomorrow's items, they are all made in Hawaii with love!

Higher






I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with high waisted items right now. I've finally purchased my first pair of high waisted jeans and I'm loving what they are doing for my legs (and that I can wear crop tops without being completely inappropriate).  I opted for this pair from Topshop mainly because of the price point and the amazing reviews (they run small though so go up at least one size).

Windswept






 Asos Dress / Nicholas Belt (similar here) / Zara Heels (Old, similar style here)

Good thing this dress has a modest lining otherwise I wouldn't make it very far in the Windy City without giving people a free show!
