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!

Boyfriend








This is one of those outfits thats get really different opinions from males and females. 

Things I heard that day: 

"What are those...those jeans that try to be guy pants?"

"Oooh where'd you get those jeans? Were they expensive?"

"Is this like, your Grandma's old quilt or something you're wearing?"

"Where'd you get those pants? I can never find boyfriend jeans that fit me well."

"You look like a crazy matador."

Thanks for your opinions people! Cracks me up..

Aloha Amiga







We popped into a spot quickly when it started raining on our trip. We had spent that morning cruising around the nearby swamps where we made friends with a raccoon and some pigs. Worth it.
