How Chicago Influences My Style

Recently, I was asked: “How has living in Chicago influenced your style?” I’d say, being a Midwest girl in a big city, I like to invest in pieces that are both classic and practical, then have a little fun with trends and edge through accessories. You’ll find me opting for a tailored dress or a great pair of jeans and a blouse, styled with statement shoes, a fabulous bag or printed scarf. While it’s fun to keep up with the latest trends out of NYC and LA, style in Chicago is structured and urban but more approachable. (We do have 4 distinct and unpredictable seasons, after all!). Old Navy is encouraging you to share your state style by posting to Instagram with #50Style50States. Where do you live and how do you think your location influences your wardrobe? p.s. All the pieces I’m wearing here are under $100 — yes, really!

  • Playtime with William is so fun - and it's only just begun! Here's our newborn playtime set-up: We love this plush velvet quilt by @crateandkids that gives a soft and comfy foundation for our little guy, paired with this personalized blue blanket (also @crateandkids) that gets a ton of use at home and on-the-go. Then just add books, a few toys, tummy time, and my lullaby voice 🎶👶🏼 #CrateKidsStyle #ad
  • A clean kitchen (and blow-dried hair) feels like a major accomplishment these days 💁🏼‍♀️ #newbornmom @liketoknow.it #LTKhome http://liketk.it/2JLae
