Oh my goodness, this vest! It is soo ridiculously soft and I find myself wanting to wear it with literally everything. It also comes in a tan color which is linked. I don’t know why but it wouldn’t let me link the black. But this is such a simple outfit with a key special piece, the vest. You can pair it with so many different looks too. All black, over a dress, top and skirt, etc. So many possibilities.

Hope your Monday is off to a good start and you had a nice weekend! 🙂

P.S. If you’re looking to get some Holiday shopping done early I have an online trunk show open now. You can click HERE to shop! The earrings I’m wearing are gorgeous for the Holidays!!

plaid top (on sale!)| denim | booties | hat | bag

This is my favorite plaid top ever! It is so soft and has the cutest ruffle on the back. I loved these fall colors (plus Bears colors!). It also comes in a red plaid and an ivory. Size down it runs really big.

We had a fun Halloween weekend although it was cold and rainy! Isla was a Flamingo and we went to a Halloween breakfast at the Morton Arboretum. She hated the men dressed up as characters (the Ninja Turtle was especially traumatizing). We got to head downtown that evening for a friend’s party which was fun too!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend!

She went from loving/hugging Ana and Elsa one second to wanting me the next. Typical, haha

First off please excuse the milk stains on my jeans, #momlife. Yesterday really felt like fall. I know school is back in session but I just can’t believe the summer is actually over. I swear it goes faster and faster every year. Although I’m sad the fun of summer is practically over, I am excited for fall and all it entails! I just wish the season as a whole lasted longer than 3 weeks, ha. Fall fashion is my favorite and I got out some old favorites to pull this fall look together. Many items aren’t available anymore but I linked some really similar pieces, some that are even cuter than what I’m wearing! I’m so excited to get to wear my nsale items soon!

We are headed to the Shedd Aquarium today to explore the aquatic world with some friends! Have a good day!

Stella & Dot Fall 2015 Collection + booties!

Here we go!

I just adore these Vince Camuto booties they are so cute in person and will go with everything this fall! But there is one problem, they are so narrow! I have a semi wide foot especially where my arch ends and these are just way too narrow for me. If you have a narrow foot go buy these now, I insist. They are so darling!

White destroyed denim HERE, my favs and a great price.

These Lucky Brand booties are very cute and very comfy! Unfortunately they are too big and my size is sold out so they will be going back.

The next 2 photos are of the same earrings that can be worn 4 different ways. These are my first pair of ear jackets and I love how subtle they are! So they can be worn as seen in the photos or you can wear them with just the little triangles as studs or the pave bars as studs. So versatile and cute!

These Kaia earrings are not new either but I just got them. And I am obsessed!! I just love how they look with anything white for summer! These can also be worn without the big drop piece and just as a little stud!

Lightning necklace this is so reminiscent of Harry Potter! I admit that had a lot to do with why I got it 🙂 there is also a ring and hoops with this design as a part of the collection.

This next necklace brings the word versatile to a whole nother level. Seriously. It can be worn 7 different ways. Seven!! Each of these strands are removable and can be worn on their own or any which way combo of the 3 you like.

IMG_6673

Then it also comes with not 1 but 2 strands of feather accents, black and really pretty bright blue. They just clip right onto the back.

IMG_6682

IMG_6691

Remember any of the top 2 strands can be removed while the feathers are attached too if you want a simpler more understated look.

And the whole thing can be flipped around to hide the little CZ sparkles on the middle strand and the top strand has black enamel on this side. The possibilities are all up to you. This could be your everyday necklace and it would never look the same each day of the week if you didn’t want it to!

I love Isla exploring in the background of the last photo. We let her walk around the patio in her little explorer “go kart” as Kevin calls it while we took these photos. She absolutely loves being outside, there is just so much to look at. I could not be happier that Spring is here! There are a few tiny little snow piles left around town but am SO glad our yard is snow free! I can’t wait to see everything come back to life!

Oh I have to tell you about these sunglasses, another knock off pair of Karen Walkers from Amazon. $10 and I think they are so cute! Not the most amazing quality ever but really good for the price. Target sunglasses aren’t even $10!

This is one of those typical standard outfits for me. Blouse, skinny jeans, wedges, a fun purse. I hope this is the last time for a while I wear boots! I wore this look to my uncle’s Retirement party on Friday. I had so much fun with my cousins Kristen & Emily, I swear we laughed all night. Family is everything.

You might have noticed I finally got my hair done, which was MUCH overdue. I go to Christina at Velvet Roar in Woodridge. If you are looking for someone in the Naperville area, I highly recommend Christina or Wendy. They are both so amazing. Christina has been doing my hair for 10 years now, she did my hair for my wedding & I wouldn’t go to anyone else. Not to mention their salon is gorgeous & you will want to be their BFF. Click here to visit their Facebook page.

I also celebrated my 26th birthday on Saturday. It was also Pi Day, 3.14.15 which has been fun to celebrate throughout the years. I can’t believe how special all my family and friends made me feel. So many people went out of their way to wish me a happy birthday & I was absolutely spoiled by my family! I definitely felt the love. I can’t believe I am 26. It just feels weird. I swear I just turned 21, but alas that is life, it goes by much too quickly. This year I am going to try and enjoy every moment and opportunity I am given because it seems the next goes faster than the last.

Sorry this post was kinda rambly and all over the place, I hope this finds you all with something to smile about today. 🙂

The title of this post is a funny joke I have with some of Kevin’s girl cousins, we always tell each other “you’re so boho chic” or “that’s so boho chic”. I’m not really sure how it started probably with me saying it to Makayla who actually is very boho chic. LOL anywayyy I have been really loving a bohemian look recently, which is funny because normally that is the opposite of my girly style. My tank was $8 from Nordstrom Rack but is sold out so I linked a couple other cute ones. This sweater has been one of my absolute favorite sweater purchases, it seems to go with so much. And although it’s chunky and warm it works during spring you just don’t need a jacket! I’ve already raved about this bag but still love it and it comes in a few other colors. The blush pink version is a great less expensive alternate to this bag.

Happy Thursday friends! I hope this sunshine is here to stay! It really puts me in a GREAT mood!! 🙂

I got this cardigan awhile back and have been in love with it since. I don’t know why I didn’t feature it on the blog sooner! It’s so soft and I love the colors! The fringe gives it a boho vibe too, which I love. It would be perfect for traveling as it could double as a blanket! Pairing it with a white tee, distressed skinnies, and some wedge booties make it a cute but casual look.

In other news did everyone watch the finale of the Bachelor? I knew he picked Whitney before the season even started but it was cute. It was obvious he wouldn’t pick Becca, she wasn’t even sure if she wanted to marry him. The barn was a little much in my opinion. They’re spending the rest of their lives on a farm, can’t the proposal be somewhere exotic and tropical? Haha maybe I’m just saying that because I want to be somewhere exotic and tropical right now. But 2 Bachelorettes??? I didn’t see that coming! I had heard last week that Kaitlyn was chosen but now Britt too? Ugh, I think she is annoying! It will be interesting though to see how the season plays out. What if they both like the same guy?! I think they added Britt just to create more drama and keep people entertained. But oh well should be another trainwreck that I’m sure I will watch, LOL.

What do you guys think about having 2 bachelorettes at once?

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Oh and P.S. My family room redo is almost done!! The chairs are being delivered today and I can’t wait to show you guys the final reveal! I’m really happy with how it turned out!
