$22 Knotted Tee






TEE: BP. (only $22!) // JEANS: BLANKNYC // BAG: Gucci // SHOES: Sold Out, Similar HERE // BRACELETS: David Yurman

One thing I love about Nordstrom sometimes, is that you can find amazing pieces for affordable prices outside of the abundance of designer labels.  This tee is one that fits that bill... it comes in 8 different colors and is only $22, can I have one in each please?!  The color here is "olive arrowwood" and the pictures don't even do it justice.  I am loving on this color for fall, I think it's my new favorite! This tee is definitely meant to fit a little oversized (i'm wearing a small) but if you want it to be more fitted, I'd recommend sizing down one size.

I also recently found these jeans and they're under $100! They are the perfect dark denim color and the right amount of distressed. I've been wearing them for the past couple weeks on repeat and will for sure be a part of my fall staples.  Leopard is another huge trend for fall... these shoes are from last year and no longer available, but these are super similar and reasonably priced (I swear by anything Sam Edelman!)

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday! I have a couple fun events this week... make sure to follow along on Instagram! xoxo

My Favorite Fall Staples





It's surprising to think that tomorrow is the first day of fall because it's in the high 80's in Chicago this week, however, I am really starting to get in the "fall state of mind."  I'm obsessing over all of the new fall clothing and can't wait to stock up the wardrobe for the chillier days.  I am specifically crushing on this suede moto jacket, which would look amazing with a pair of dark denim, or over a dress!  The color is the perfect fall neutral.  I also always go for a good pair of booties once the weather gets cooler.  These booties are under $100 and also come in black.  I love the heel height and the color goes with pretty much everything! If you haven't invested in a nice handbag yet, now is the time! I am in love with this classic Tory Burch bag- it's the perfect size and color.  It's definitely more of a splurge, but totally worth the extra bucks!  Also, nothing screams "fall" more than a tan floppy hat! This hat also comes in black and is under $40, making it a staple piece for everyone's closet. 

What are you currently crushing on for fall?! xoxo

Transitional Fall/Summer Romper, Avocado Wall & Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!









ROMPER: Roxy // SANDALS: Tory Burch // EARRINGS: Baublebar // BAG: GiGi New York // RING: Kendra Scott

My favorite types of outfits are the ones that can be easily transitioned from season to season, which is why I love this long sleeve Roxy romper.  The material is light weight enough to be perfect for summer months, even having long sleeves, but also perfect for fall and cooler temps to throw on a denim jacket and booties.  I also want to mention that this romper is only $50, so definitely a steal if you ask me!  Can we talk about how amazing this mural is in Chicago?! I found this avocado wall in the West Loop and instantly fell in love... because what's better than avocados?!  If you're in Chicago, you must check out the Mott50 store, (where the mural is) they have the cutest avocado leggings!

On another note, this week I decided to team up with some of my favorite bloggers and bring you an amazing giveaway. One lucky reader will win a $650 gift card to Amazon.

Blue Floral Tiered Dress









DRESS: Wayf // WEDGES: Marc Fisher // BAG: Sold out (similar HERE) // EARRINGS: Baublebar // BRACELET: David Yurman // RING: Kendra Scott

FriYAY! It's finally the weekend and I can't be more excited to celebrate the wedding of one of my good friends this weekend and have an extra day off on Monday! It's almost starting to feel like fall i in Chicago, and I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it... I definitely don't think Chicago got enough summer!

I wore this dress a couple weeks ago to dinner with some family and it's perfect for dressing up or down (I threw on a denim jacket with it to dress it down!)  The off the shoulder sweetheart neckline definitely gives it a feminine romantic feel, and the fit is amazing.  This dress is a great transitional piece into fall, as the colors give off more of a fall feel than summer, but it's still light weight enough to wear during the summer months.  My favorite Marc Fisher wedges go perfect and I can't get enough of them... I think I've worn them over 100 times this summer- they're SO comfortable!! I will for sure be picking them up in another color for spring.

Off to do some wedding planning, I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend! xoxo
