you loved the times i sang.

vintage dress; coach 'swagger 20' bag and 'felicia' booties; daniel wellington watch; ray-ban clubmaster sunglasses.

 i turned 29 on september 15th, and it was literally the best birthday week i have ever had. an eleven day vacation full of fun, surprises, and love. this was my outfit on my actual birthday! the most amazing vintage dress that's a stunner all on its own, but taken to the next level with a few classy accessories. there's something about a dress paired with ankle boots that sings to me.


my favorite song off beirut's new album.
my birthday was also the day i decided to start a snapchat account.

grana blouse; h&m skirt; vintage coach bag; ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; vagabond boots.

truth: sometimes the simplest of outfits can make the biggest impact. this chinese silk blouse by grana is one of the smoothest things i've ever felt against my body, and it's honeycomb color is a shade i have consistently loved pairing with denim. it just looks so good together.  

not sure why i think of such random things, but if i were to ever run a marathon, this song would be on my playlist. it's beautiful.

the moment.

memories from my first full weekend at lollapalooza. i've been one day once before, but this time i went all three! i saw more bands that i actually wanted to see than i ever have at any festival i've been to, and i got to hang with my favorites, dylana and natalie, so it's easy to say the weekend was a huge success. my top three performances were the war on drugs, tame impala (listen below), and sylvan esso. they also happen to be three of my top bands - i was definitely in music heaven.

thank you to o'neill for providing my wardrobe for the festival! key items included a two-piece set, a delicate white tank top, and brown strappy sandals. hope you enjoy these pics and a little trip down summer's memory lane!

wardrobe & styling: me

i had the pleasure of collaborating with the lovely alexz sandoval of bird trouble, a chicago-based line of handcrafted, fair-trade bags and accessories. she asked me to be in her autumn lookbook video, and there was no way i was going to refuse! i love supporting local brands and the incredible women behind them. we shot this at montrose harbor, literally racing against the clock as the sun set. i think it turned out beautifully. thanks again, alexz!

you know we had to use a chicago band in the video as well.

zara blouse; vintage levi's jeans; vintage coach bag; ray-ban sunglasses; vintage shoes.

white blouses are my JAM. i own probably twenty of them! this one is extra special thanks to the swiss dots and high neck. i love it by itself, but i also can't wait to layer it under sweaters and coats in the coming weeks. vintage is key in my look here. i did take these jeans to the tailor for a better fit, but it's so easy to find great pair of levi's at the thrift store. and these mint condition etienne aigner heels are easily one of the best things i have ever scored.
jam on all day to a new kisses song.

can i take you home.

thrift dress; the home t illinois tote bag; ray-ban sunglasses; rochas brogues. 

i absolutely love calling chicago home....for now :-)
the home t is a company i'm so happy to support. my collection includes two illinois tees, a tank, and now this tote bag. a portion of every single purchase is donated to multiple sclerosis research. 

she's got this way, she's got this way...

you're the best.

summer, you are the best. flashback to those beautiful warm days spent on chicago's beaches in my made by dawn bikinis.

play for the perfect mood.

surreal exposure.

forever 21 jumpsuit; coach sunglasses, backpack, and sandals.

sorry this post is fourth months late, but i'm still playing catch-up! i had the pleasure of co-hosting a lollapalooza event at the coach store on michigan avenue this past july. it was so fun to mingle with guests and friends as we shopped coach's entire summer collection, and special little curated selections by me and the other hosts! here i am styling a look for a day at lolla with coach accessories. it was featured on their email blast for festival style inspiration! 

this post's song :-)
