lou & grey chicago.



two weeks ago, i had the pleasure of being invited to visit the new lou & grey in chicago on their opening day. little did i know that i would be stepping into such an immaculately curated store! not only does this brick and mortar location sell their own amazing line of casual, cool clothing, but they also have jewelry from local chicago designers, and coordinating accessories like hats by janessa leone. it was a bright and welcoming atmosphere, with easy to shop displays and merchandising, and friendly associates around to help with whatever is needed. i even made a new friend, my go-to for "does this look good one me?" and even a little styling advice - hi chloe! :-) my haul included a pair of soft check shorts, chambray joggers, a chambray jumpsuit, a sporty white skirt, and a perfect t-shirt. you can shop my favorite lou & grey pieces and see me wearing some of them below, and if you live in or plan on visiting chicago, be sure to head to lakeview to check out the new store. thanks for everything, lou & grey and rewardstyle!

h.s.k.t.


vintage coat; h&m turtleneck and hat; vintage coach backpack; ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch;
marc by marc jacobs ring; target tights; vagabond boots from urban outfitters.

head-to-toe, this my ideal cold weather outfit. i picked this coat up at a saver's store and didn't even proceed to look for anything else, i just immediately headed to the checkout with my new treasure. now that's satisfaction. 


 
this duo takes my top prize as favorite new discovery of 2014.
i just saw them live a week ago; one of the best shows i've ever had the pleasure of attending! such a dream.

very best friend.

thrift sweater; zara skirt and boots; h&m beanie; target tights; vintage bag.

a-line minis with a baggy sweater and ankle boots are like a best friend - i'm always happy to be around them, and they're there for me when i am in need. the sunshine yellow color of my backdrop reminds me of my best friend. this one goes out to you. :-)

nothing you can say.


vintage levi's jeans; urban outfitters crop tee; zara bag; vintage belt;  ray-ban sunglasses; allsaints loafers.

reality check: it's late february, and spring feels a million miles away here in snow-covered chicago. so, in celebration of flashback friday, i bring you a long lost summer look that never made its way onto my blog until now! these vintage levi's didn't need to be tailored, nor did i cut the hem - they just magically came this way. i remember this day was so hot, and being incredibly thankful for the low scoop back of my t-shirt.

trending in london now.


as mentioned earlier, i have partnered with topshop and the michigan avenue store to bring you some of london fashion week's best trends, trends you can incorporate into your wardrobe as we speak! after much deliberation, editing, and even a last minute directional change in the key styles, i pulled together six looks based on three things trending in london right now: utility, modernism, and raw hems. the outfits were kept very simple: three pieces at max, and almost no accessories, to really highlight the garments in each trend. everything you see here is ready to be shopped at the michigan avenue store, and hopefully at stores across the globe as well! you can also visit topshop's inside out blog to stay even more ahead of the curve when it comes to london style.

somebody who.

vintage coat and bag; thrift belt; henry and belle jeans; h&m hat; 
daniel wellington watch; vagabond boots from urban outfitters

solution to an enormous coat - put a belt on it! sort of like put a ring on it...but much, much simpler. i've never been somebody who's passed on an item i adored while shopping because of size, especially when thrifting. you can always make it work with little tricks and tweaks, and sometimes things look even better when they are a bit oversized. i hope you guys are enjoying my daily outfit posts/content purge! i've still got around ten more looks to go.

lovely ladies crooning over my kinda beat.
