Hope you had a great 4th of July weekend! We spent another weekend in Michigan with both my family and my husbands family. Zara spent some quality time with both sides, which was great. The weekend was filled with relaxing, food, and of course fireworks! The worst part of the whole weekend was spending 3 hours in traffic on 94 getting home.
Before we left Friday, Suhail, Zara and I stopped by the Roosevelt Collection in the South Loop to pick up a few things before heading out. We had no idea how awesome the area was getting with all the new restaurants and stores. I’m loving all the new development in South Loop! We snapped a few pictures while we were there. When we are traveling I love wearing something easy and comfortable – like a maxi dress! I paired the maxi with a jean jacket and sandals -Its an easy chic look!

Happy July 4th everyone!
I hope everyone is enjoying their day off with family or friends! Here is my red, white & blue outfit in honor of Independence day. I picked up this blouse from Jcrew and paired it with white crop pants. I loved dressing it up with red heels, bag and a statement piece!
Have a safe and happy Independence day weekend!

Although, I don’t follow the “no white pants after labor day” rule to a tee, I do maximize wearing white and light colored pants during the summer months! White pants/jeans bring a whole new look to my wardrobe every summer!
For this look I paired by favorite white jeans with just a simple plain white tee and a bold statement piece. I love the way white on white looks – fresh, clean, and simple.

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.

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!
