Back in Action

I am such a whiny baby when it comes to being sick. A small case of the sniffles and I instantly become that person walking around with a box of kleenex attached to my hip. But I usually at least tough it out. This entire last week, I was entirely out of commission for most of the week. Friday, though, I finally felt good enough to get out of the house. And go directly to rehearsal for a choir concert. So I celebrated with some bright spring ...

Spring has Sprung!

  It’s SO NICE OUTSIDE! If spring isn’t here, it’s doing a really good job of faking it. I’ve been waiting for an excuse to wear these shoes for a while now. The weather finally warmed up enough to justify it! Clutch || Shoes

Nose to the Grindstone

You know those weeks where you have so much work to do you don’t know how you’ll get it all done and in the meantime oh my goodness everything seems to be exploding in your personal life and you are simply running out of energy to do things like eat let alone blog? That’s been the last week for me. And will continue to be this coming week. Now don’t get me wrong on the work front, I love having work to do. I love that ...

Fishtail French Braid Updo, Blanket Scarves, and Doggy Debut!

Last weekend, Chicago displayed its most undecided weather and gave us a day of sun and warmth immediately followed by a day of cold, extreme wind, snow, and gross. Conveniently, we decided the warm day would be a good day to take Zoe Dog on an adventure around her new neighborhood. We walked over 2.5 miles, discovered sand, met other dogs, chased squirrels, played in the mud, and had a grand ol’ time. Safe to say, she was exhausted ...

Statement Necklace Styling and Dog!

Sunday’s outfit was inspired by Dolled Up With Liz’s post, “Never dull your sparkle!” about styling an entire outfit around a statement necklace. So that is exactly what I did, inspired entirely by her outfit. I know this chambray has been featured in my last three outfit posts. I promise that 1) it’s been clean (we’ve hat a lot of laundry to do lately. And I’ve just been tossing it in) and 2) I will ...

Vacation Week!

Happy Monday! I believe the quote “may your coffee be strong and your Monday be short” is appropriate for many today. For me, it’s vacation week! Well, it’s staycation week. I’ve got this glorious week off between my contracts at my job that’s giving me a chance to catch up with everything and be ready to go into what is going to be a VERY crazy busy spring theatre season. I’ve got 4 shows between ...

Stovetop Potpourri and Cozy Fridays

This grip of cold around Chicago hasn’t quite released yet. And this apartment, while not freezing, is certainly not warm. It’s been rather chilly around here. We’ve pulled out the heated blanket, the flannel sheets, and additional blankets on top of that. To be honest, though, that’s probably my favorite part of winter. The layers. I’m such a blanket fiend. We have no less than three blankets out at any one ...

Christmas Date #2- Joffrey Nutcracker at the Auditorium

I’m a fan of holiday traditions. My personal one is seeing the Nutcracker every year. It started during my semester in London with a Matthew Bourne adaptation (so good, highly recommend!) and has continued here in Chicago with the Joffrey Ballet’s presentation. This is now the second year my lady has come with. I love having an excuse to get all dressed up, go to dinner, and see a show. Bringing her with just makes the tradition ...

Plaid for Days- Blanket Scarf Edition

  I found the most popular blanket scarf of all time and now I’m styling it for you! I somehow managed to really luck out making my way to Target shortly after Thanksgiving. Wandered towards scarves just to check. This particular blanket scarf has been so impossible to find. I knew it would be fruitless but I wanted to look anyway. Lo and behold, lucky day! It is every bit as soft and snuggly as I wanted it to be. I’ve been ...

Chicago Fashion Week!

Chicago Fashion Week on Late Notice I hadn’t realized Chicago Fashion Week was a thing until very recently. And by very recently, I mean on the Thursday of said fashion week! Oops. Still, Thursday was apparently early enough to still manage to attend some events and get a taste for fashion in Chicago. I attended two events: HAUS of HUMANITY Menswear Runway Event and Fashion Forward! The Fashion Market Runway and Selling event. HAUS of ...
