City Chic

posted on: Monday, October 24, 2016

Hi friends, hope you had a great weekend! Chicago is buzzing with excitement, as the Cubs won a major game Saturday to qualify for the World Series. No matter your allegiance, it's fun to see the city band together and share in celebration! This weekend, I reached for a leather jacket that's been in my closet for years and a pair of booties to spend an afternoon in River North. This exact jacket is from a few seasons ago, but I've linked similar styles below, if interested. Wishing you a good Monday!

Cozy Favorites

posted on: Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Today's post is all about cozy little indulgences, perfect for fall weekends. Chicago is beginning to cool off, which has me thinking about warmer layers and cozying up at home with spiced tea and a nice candle (this one is my absolute favorite). The makings of my perfect relaxed night-in would include: luxe pajamas (also love these PJs under $100), a super soft blanket, these faux fur slippers on my feet, and catching up on Netflix with a glass of wine. What does your ideal night-in look like?

SHOP THE POST: Rose Hand Cream || Mug || Blush Velvet Clutch || Pillow || Body Oil || Pillar Candles (I love these displayed together) || Ivory Blanket || Rose Mist || Socks || Diffuser ('prosecco' is my favorite) || Nail Polish || Lip Balm || Matchbox || Gold Comb || Tan Scarf (only $25) || Straw Basket || Silk Pajamas || Pink Clay Mask || Slippers
