Orange Checkers

Happy Wednesday ya’ll! (one day closer to the long weekend!)

There were so many great sales going on this past weekend that I couldn’t resist shopping a bit! I picked up these checkered cropped pants from Ann Taylor Loft. I really liked the pattern and they are a light and airy fabric, which makes it great for summer. For this particular look I paired it with light orange cardigan from Jcrew Factory and of course a pretty statement piece!

Also, did you guys get a chance to see that Donna Karen is debuting its new DKNY Ramadan capsule collection! It is a 12 piece collection which the clothing is a little longer, modern, and have a more modest silhouette. Check out the DKNY website for the collection lookbook.

Got the blues

It is July 1st! Can you believe half the year is already over – where has the time gone? I’m gearing up for the long weekend, as usual we will head to Michigan to spend sometime with family and friends, have BBQ and enjoy some fireworks. Can’t wait!

The pants to tops ratio in my closet is disproportional, I have way too many pants and not enough shirts to match them all. But that didn’t stop me from getting these pleated front jogger pants! I’m always a little weary of pleated front pants because I am only 5’2  and it sometimes just doesn’t look right. But when I tried these on I loved them!

For this look, I paired the jogger pants with a blue blouse, a blue floral blazer, pretty heels, and a few gold accessories, including a statement piece!

Summer Luau

Happy Monday Everyone,

So this weekend my husband and I began to tackle cleaning out our apartment. We were late with spring cleaning this year – so I guess now we are summer cleaning. Anyway, in the midst of us cleaning we realized we are in need of a living room makeover. We have great furniture, but we definitely need to spruce it up! Not to mention we have all the baby stuff (jumparoo, baby swing, high chair, bouncer….the list is endless) that we need to work around. Some of the furniture we had previously we got rid of because we didn’t want Baby Z to get hurt. How do you make your living space modern and chic, at the same time baby friendly? It our new project over the next few weeks – I will be sure to keep giving updates!

On the look, I wore this outfit a few weeks back for my nieces first birthday party – It was a luau themed party. I wanted something easy and that I could run around in because Baby Z was with me. So I chose to wear colored pants – I love colored pants, I have so many different ones. I feel like you can dress them up or dress them down with any top! I chose these peach colored pants with a floral top and flats! I dressed it up with a gold necklace and bracelets. What different colored pant do you have?

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.

Amour

Right before my husband and I went to Hawaii, I did some last minute shopping to get a few vacation outfits. Between work and the baby I really didn’t have time to shop too much for our vacation. I did a quick stop at Old Navy to get a pair of flip flops and I was surprised and happy to find a few great things! This “Amour” graphic tee was one of them! I really liked the mint green color – so I picked it up. I paired the tee with white jeans, wedges, and a few accessories including a scarf, bracelet and tan belt. The outfit, plus the perfect background of the ocean and the overall beauty of Hawaii made for the perfect style!
