losing touch.

lou & grey romper; forever 21 headband; daniel wellington watch; vintage coach backpack; thrift shoes.

starting to really get into this summer state of mind, and the relaxed, carefree bliss that comes along with it. i've been adding this floral print headband as a finishing touch lately, and i love the tropical/vacation-y vibes it lends to my outfits. i also get a ton of compliments on this lou & grey chambray romper, and i've worn it everywhere, from the shopping in my neighborhood to the planetarium downtown! 

new AHJ! give it 30 seconds to begin... :)

my kind of woman.

thrifted jacket; topshop tee; h&m skirt; vintage coach bag; ray-ban sunglasses;
marc by marc jacobs ring; daniel wellington watch; seychelles heels.

thrifted what could be described as the most amazing piece of outerwear for the spring/summer season: a denim trench coat! styled exactly how i like it: simple and classic.

the wait.

thrift pinafore; h&m shirt; urban outfitters bandana; vintage coach bag; 
daniel wellington watch; marc by marc jacobs ring; forever 21 sandals.

we are still waiting and waiting here in chicago for some perfect summer weather...aside from maybe one glimmer of hope a week, the days have mostly been filled with clouds and rain. it was raining when i shot these, but i wanted to capture my outfit! i found this pinafore smushed in the rack of black dresses at the thrift store and immediately imagined it layers over a multitude of things. i love the black and white contrast here, with all the different shades of brown and tan in my accessories. p.s. neck bandana forever and always.

saw tobias's live set yesterday at pitchfork. 
the blue stage is seriously my favorite stage to see an artist at this fest.

letting go.

zara top; h&m jeans; vintage coach bag; ray-ban sunglasses; 
daniel wellington watch; marc by marc jacobs ring; nine west sandals.

letting go of my skinny jean habit and branching out into different styles of denim. first, it was mom jeans/vintage levi's that i fell for a while back, now it's a 70's high waist, wide leg that i can't get enough of. what do you guys thing? you like? :)

makes me so sad but want to dance at the same time. brilliant.

dream lover.

pitaya top; h&m skirt; vintage coach backpack; ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; marc by marc jacobs ring; office boots.

floating around an oasis in the city in this pretty little bell sleeved top by pitaya. their location in wicker park is where i get all my goods, but you can also shop online! paired with a denim pencil skirt (a wardrobe staple of mine - i have one in every shade of denim, mostly thrifted) and these office boots (from topshop on michigan avenue) that i can't seem to take off, no matter how hot it is outside.

i adore the saxophone in this! lovers on the run...

somos dos.

h&m dress; vintage belt; vintage coach bag; daniel wellington watch; nine west sandals.

balmy summer nights filled with good food and even better conversation call for a piece that feels extra special: this dress, in a fun tropical print. i love this recent reappearance of off-the-shoulder dresses and tops, and i will continue to wear them even when it's not a trend anymore. it's definitely 70's inspired, and that just so happens to be my favorite decade for style inspiration.

such incredible, beautiful, romantic music from this colombian band.

urban outfitters knit bandeau; vintage pants and belt; vintage backpack; ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; bc footwear sandals.

summer is here! but that doesn't mean i still can't wear what may seem like seasonally inappropriate clothing. i just have to be mindful of the cut and the fabric of each piece. here, a bandeau in sweater material paired with super lightweight pants work perfectly together for a day downtown, despite the heat. and sandals seem like an integral part of keeping this look in a summer state of mind.

my album of the year thus far.  UMO

take my side.

urban outfitters dress; forever 21 headband; ray-ban sunglasses; aldo boots. 

here's a few pictures we snapped in collaboration with urban outfitters for their #UOroadtrip campaign.
imagine endless roads, endless destinations, and an endless suitcase of perfectly breezy dresses. 

i saw will butler live last weekend, and it was amazing. his opening act was a comedian - i've never been to a show like that before! his genius and sense of humor are apparent in every song on his solo album.

i want what you got.

vintage dress, belt and bag; h&m sunglasses; nine west shoes.
vintage is and always will hold a big place in my heart and in my life. it's such a nice feeling to have that special piece no one else will be wearing. this one immediately caught my eye thanks to its long sleeves and varsity stripe details! i might get it tailored so the top area and sleeves fit a bit better, but until then, it's still probably my favorite dress i've ever found. <3 center="">
when a band sounds like what you always thought your dream band would sound like....but better.
