Gold & White Sneakers

0

Valentine’s Day came a little early for me…in the form of these gold and white New Balance sneakers from Michael. I had been eyeing of pair of 620’s as a casual shoe option and when these gold babies came out, I was sold. Paired with white skinny pants and a white sweater, I call this chic casual – ha, is that even a thing?

Beach Bags

0

If you are like me, the winter blues have fully taken over your mood and you are in desperate need for a spring break getaway to warmer temperatures. Thankfully, my friends realized this and decided to say their “I Do’s” this weekend in Florida. So, we are heading to 80-degree weather and let’s just say, I am a touch excited. 

Since I have a hard time “under-packing”, my beach bag has to carry a lot of things – a beach towel, book, magazine, hat, sunscreen, and camera. Plus, I like when it can double as a carry-on bag for travel.

These nine beach bags are both stylish and functional, plus how cute are the pom poms on the Mar Y Sol totes?

Florals at the Beach

Hibiscus Floral Dress, Kendra Scott Earrings, Rattan purse {similar version}, NARS New Lover, NARS Never Say Never

I am spending the week with my family in sunny Watercolor, Florida (right next to Seaside), and feeling quite spoiled by all the warm temperatures, bright sun and soothing sounds of the ocean. This is our second trip as a family to the same location, but Michael and I took the opportunity to head out to a new beach town for a date night before everyone arrived for our vacation.

We chose Caliza Restaurant in Alys Beach which is this all-white, super-luxe resort community and had THE most amazing meal – red snapper for me and surf & turf for Michael based on a recommendation from our friends.

Since the nights are still super warm, I chose this easy-breezy hibiscus floral dress I snagged on super-sale from J. Crew; paired with my favorite white Kendra Scott earrings and a rattan purse also from J. Crew. It was the perfect, summery outfit for poolside dining.

Yesterday, it snowed in Chicago…snowed. It was a harsh reality after the Indian-summer weather we had earlier in the week and I was not too happy.

You know the kind of day where all you want to do is wrap yourself up in your coziest blanket and start a fire? Well, this leather-trimmed number is pretty much the coat version of that cozy blanket. You should probably pick one up for yourself. And maybe start a fire too.

20 Ways to be Pretty in Pink

0

Since pink is one of THE shades of the spring season (and you may have noticed I am obsessed), I’ve rounded up 20 ways to incorporate this pretty pastel into your wardrobe, accessories and jewelry this spring. 

In order to keep this look sophisticated, I suggest pairing your pink-hued items with white, tan, denim or even black for a tougher look. Yesterday, I paired two shades of blush with denim and am just waiting for the temperatures to rise a bit to shoot some of the other pieces I recently purchased. 

Aztec Sweater Coat | Everyday Cuvee – A Fashion + Lifestyle Blog by Courtney Callahan Myers

This Aztec Sweater Coat  has been on heavy rotation this winter. In addition to it be warm and cozy, the color combination is easy to match with black and white which is a major portion of my wardrobe.

This is the first time I had ordered from that company and honestly was a little wary of “one size fits all” but it really doesn’t matter because it’s oversized. Plus, it is under $30 which is a major steal!

Faux Fur Stole + Black Blazer

Over the weekend, I celebrated a good friend’s bachelorette weekend here in Chicago. We ate sushi, got our nails done, gifted the bride-to-be with lingerie and danced the night away. It was THE perfect girls weekend.

Plus, I was able to wear this new high-low blouse that is going to be a great staple in my wardrobe because of the shape, material and texture. Here I’ve paired it with a leather-sleeved black blazer (similar versions here and here) and this super-cozy faux fur stole (on sale!).

Kendra Scott’s Avant Garden

Kendra Scott launched her new Avant Garden Spring jewelry collection and it so, so gorgeous. The colors are so soft which is departure from the bold shades normally featured in her collection. I have long been a fan of her pieces and am sharing my top picks from her new line below.

If I had to choose my favorite, it would be the Billie Ear Climbers. This shape is a little rocker, something totally different and are already sold out on the Kendra Scott website but I found them at Nordstrom.

Easter Dresses under $100

0

Easter is coming up in a few weeks and for the third year in a row, Michael and I will be joining my sister-in-law’s family for Easter brunch at the Chicago Yacht Club. Since we don’t normally travel for this holiday, we’re thankful to be welcomed into their extended family for the holiday and equally happy to dine on delicious food.

Even though the weather doesn’t always cooperate, I always wear a dress. To me, it seems like the start to spring frock season — bold colors and floral prints encouraged. So, I’ve rounded up some budget-friendly, Easter-worthy dresses under $100! I think the Neon Floral Crop Top Floral Dress is highest on my list.
