12.09.2016 // Friday Charades

Happy Friday – I hope you’re looking forward to a wonderful weekend! The forecast for Chicago calls for snow, so it’s definitely time to break out the sweaters and layers. This week’s Friday Charades includes lots of cozy knits, my new favorite colorful handbag, and more!

Multicolor Brick Wall ChicagoStrathberry Pink Midi ToteBlack Off the Shoulder Sweater

This black off the shoulder sweater is the exact same one as the ivory version I posted a while back. I’ve been wearing both of them nonstop, and I’ve included several similar options below!

Sweater: Black Off the Shoulder Sweater {similars below} // Denim: Paige Skinny Ankle Jeans

Purse: Strathberry Midi Tote {c/o} {also obsessed with the nano version!}

Heels: J. Crew Silver Pumps {similar here} // Eyewear: Quay Sugar and Spice Sunglasses

Jewelry: Kate Spade Black Tassel Earrings {c/o} {last worn in this post}


Sophie Hulme Rainbow Stripe Albion Tote Bag

This week, my new favorite tote finally arrived! I have been patiently waiting, what feels like forever, for it to become available! The Sophie Hulme resort collection is so amazing, and I am obsessed with all of these multicolor rainbow stripe bags. She used it on her classic Albion tote, the Milner crossbody shoulder bag, a small clutch, and more. It’s even been produced in glitter! This is the exact accessory needed to get us through
the winter grays, right?!?


I was beyond honored to be featured in Michigan Avenue magazine’s December 2016/January 2017 issue and named one of five most influential Instagrammers in Chicago. I’m thrilled to be alongside four insanely talented individuals like Nathan Michael and Samantha Roby, among others. A HUGE thank you to Michigan Avenue for including me in this feature.

Finally, here are a few recent things that make me happy:

Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year

Carrie’s multicolor dress + moto jacket combo – love this look!

This scalloped trim top – can’t wait for it to arrive!

Blair’s pink sunglasses (the perfect compliment to her blush bag and pants)!

My new favorite matte liquid lipstick
