Holiday Fashion // 2016

The holidays are my favorite time of year. I love watching Christmas movies, decorating the house (check out my Pinterest for all of my favorites), and spending time with family. But this is also the time of year when I find myself getting dressed up for endless family dinners and holiday parties. (I went to four separate Thanksgivings last year – overwhelming is putting it lightly). I love dressing up, but with all of these events, I sometimes find myself at a loss for what to wear. This year, however, I’m prepared for holiday fashion season.

I’ve scoured my favorite stores for holiday-appropriate outfits for every event, from casual family dinners to New Year’s Eve. Check out my favorite holiday fashion picks below! Read More »

Fall Favorites // 2016

I‘ve been looking forward to fall basically all summer. Sure, autumn is back-to-school season (bleh), but it’s also the season of flannels, pumpkin spice, apple picking, and cozy nights in.

Festival Style & Lollapalooza 2016

Hello lovely readers. I just got back from my very first Lollapalooza! It was an amazing experience: I got to walk around one of my favorites cities and see some great artists. Nathan and I only went for one day, but we got to see Melanie Martinez, The 1975, Bastille, J. Cole, Lana del Rey, and Daughter. It was a dream come true. The food was also absolutely amazing (stay tuned for a post all about my favorite Chicago eats in the near future!) but naturally, my favorite part was the festival style.

There are, of course, the usual trends that always make an appearance when Coachella kicks off festival season. See: flower crowns, denim shorts, ankle boots and lots of fringe. But Chicagoans and out-of-towners alike brought their A-game when it came to Lolla this year.

I rounded up my favorite trends from this year’s festivals in honor of my trip to Lollapalooza. Check them out below! Read More »
