Bright Color Summer Chic

After living in Chicago for  4 years- my lists of restaurants I want to try is getting longer and longer. This past weekend I finally visited  Carnivale. I know, I’m late in trying it out, but its been on my list from the very beginning! The ambiance was so bright and colorful, the food was delicious, the company was awesome, not to mention the cotton candy for dessert. It was totally worth the wait! What are some of the restaurants you want to try?

On the style – If you can’t tell by now, I love blouses! This blouse is from a past season from Akira Chicago. I love the orange and blue stripes. I paired it with my favorite white Joes jeans, a tan belt, and wedges. I also wore a Laura Lombardi Necklace. I love her pieces – they are so trendy yet elegant.

Summer Floral

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope everyone had a great Fathers day weekend. This was the first weekend in a long time that Suhail, Z and I stayed in Chicago. Can I just say…I have a love hate relationship with Chicago. I hate it in the winter when the temperature is like -12, but I LOVE it in the summer. Nothing beats Chicago summers. The weather this past weekend was absolutely perfect. We spent a good amount of time outdoors this weekend with Baby Z – we took her for a stroll in her new CityMini Stroller (she finally fits in it) and visited the park – she loved the baby swing! How did you guys spend your Fathers day weekend?

On the style, I’m not a huge floral person – but I loved this Forever 21 top – the blue flowers were calling my name! I paired it with jeans, A tan belt and heels and an olive green bag (an amazing Nordstrom Rack find!). I thought the colors went well together – all earthy tones.

Easy Clean Casual

Hi All,

Here are the details on one of my favorite looks that I had posted on my instragram last week – The easy clean casual look! I love a great fitting chambray shirt. It is a great addition to any wardrobe. A chambray shirt can be styled so many different ways and looks great! With this look I paired my top with my favorite white jeans from joes jeans. It’s after Memorial day so white jeans/pants are a GO!

Polka Dot Blues

May-12-2014

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a fabulous Mothers Day. Yesterday was my very first mothers day as a mom! I got a handbag and flowers from my husband, and daughter, and a necklace from my mom, and sister! It was an overall pretty relaxing day!

This weekend my husband and I had a lunch date with a few friends of ours. We went to Kingsbury Street Café in Lincoln Park. The food was delicious, and the chocolate muffins are to die for! To lunch I wore this look I call the “Polka Dot Blues”. If you can’t tell by now – I love jackets over everything. I think they give an overall polished look. I paired these blue pants from Akira, with a black polka dot blouse from Zara, and topped it off with a Jacket from H&M. The necklace I am wearing is from Lauren Lombardi.

I’m so happy it’s starting to get warmer out! We can finally walk outside without a warm puffy jacket! This weekend my family and I got to enjoy the sun and test out our new camera! I got the hubby to take some pictures of my look!

When I moved to Chicago 3 years ago, I fell in love with Akira. For those of you who don’t know – Akira is Chicago based clothing store that has some awesome finds! I’ve been searching for some reasonably priced black faux leather leggings and of course I found them at Akira! I paired it with a white blouse from H&M (here is one that is similar.) Finally, I topped it off with this awesome jacket from Jack by BB Dakota .

My accessories include this fabulous necklace from Kenneth Cole, my favorite bag from Mulberry, and black pumps from Ninewest.

I’m so excited to be sharing some of my awesome finds with all of you!

Have a great week!
