hey lover.


vintage sweater and sunglasses from bird on a wire; coach skirt and bag; h&m belt; zara loafers.

i suggest you do yourself a favor and visit london/lisbon based e-tailer bird on a wire - it's impeccably curated, and will sate your appetite for all things vintage. if you asked me if i could one thing for the rest of my life, it would be to run an online vintage site - and these girls do it just right! i scored this cropped navy sweater of my dreams from their selections, and am super excited to begin an ongoing collaboration with them.

this is the most incredible cover...

blue light.

h&m coat and headpiece; thrift sweater; kristinit skirt; vintage coach backpack; daniel wellington watch; vintage loafers.

kristina, designer from the cali line kristinit, and i have continued to collaborate throughout the years, and for good reason. i love styling her vintage-inspired, directional pieces, like this fuzzy argyle pattern skirt. it's perfect to wear with more subdued, neutral pieces, which is exactly what i did on this late winter evening in my beautiful city.

a classic.

morning thought.


vintage coat and belt; h&m shirt; henry & belle jeans; kooba backpack; zara boots.

a little sass on a saturday afternoon. i stepped away from skinny jeans for a bit as my vintage denim collection continues to grow, but i will always go back to this high rise from henry and belle. they never stretch out and they're soft as buttaaaaaah. my favorite denim brand, located right here in chicago.

i love you so.

coach jacket, bag, and loafers; h&m sweater and skirt; target socks.

a chilly afternoon spent in pilsen, one of my two favorite neighborhoods in the city. the first picture was taken at 606 records. it's such a cool place to pick up a vinyl or two - i could hang there for hours! i think my favorite part of this outfit was the socks. striped, unevenly cuffed, and perfectly paired with my coach platform loafers. 

chicago boys!

streetlight.


h&m hat and shirt; bb dakota blazer; american apparel belt; vintage levi's; daniel wellington watch; coach bag and boots.

i had the pleasure of enjoying an overnight stay at the freehand chicago. i'd visited their penthouse before (i.n.s.a.n.e.), but the standard room was just as delightful. we enjoyed drinks and tapas at the broker shaker, a tipsy shopping spree on michigan avenue (it's within walking distance of everything), and plenty of mini photo shoots and in-room reality tv. thank you for your hopsitality, freehand! can't wait to come back.

i'm a huge fan of john maus' experiental songs.

flying colors.

h&m coat; thrift sweater; urban outfitters dress worn as a skirt; coach bag; ray-ban sunglasses; zara boots.

throws a sweater over a dress to turn it into a skirt (i wanted to tone down the bright colors and for more obvious reasons, warmth), ignores all no trespassing signs for a good photo op (self explanatory). i gave this same coach bag to my bff as a gift. it looks super luxe, and who doesn't love a good crossbody?

up all night.


bardot dress from urban outfitters; coach bag; zara heels.

say hellooooooo to my holiday party outfit last season. i will be saving this one and bringing it out again when the opportunity strikes. there is a certain vulnerability about wearing a skin tight dress - and i like having nothing to hide. and the freedom to move with ease while dancing the night away.

kisses! my faves.
