this is what i throw on to just bum around, running errands and such. when i'm at home i'll wear comfier black leggings instead of the shorts.
also, got these boots in chicago (along with an identical black pair). they are just what i've been looking for. so perfect!

i look foward to the pictures taken outside of the fashion shows more than what we see on the runways each season.
these ladies are chic x 10.

here's what i wore to chicago last saturday, where i went as part of my birthday present =)
my boyfriend and i spent eight hours round trip on the road, and around eight hours shopping, so it was definitely a whirlwind trip! i didn't take but maybe ten pictures because it has just rained before we arrived and the weather was still crappy. we hit up my favorite high street shops, a pizza joint, and a few other places downtown before driving a little further north west for my first visit to an IKEA(!). i know it's not the highest quality furniture, but it sure is simple, inexpensive, and swedish, three things i adore :)
i cannot take full credit for this outfit, as it was inspired by the lovely katherine power from whowhatwear.com. she twitpic-ed this photo about two months ago, and i instantly fell in love with her perfect look. i think i have said this many times before, but it's so cool when you see an amazing outfit, and you realize that you have everything in your closet needed to recreate it. i knew i'd wear it once i finally got a shearling jacket, and my trip to chicago seemed like the perfect opportunity!
my favorite skyscraper in chicago. i think it's both commercial and residential units...how freaking amazing would it be to live at the top of this thing?! also demonstrated in this photo: new and old architecture, sitting beautifully side by side - another reason why i can't get enough of chicago.

i feel ready to conquer fall with just these two pieces.
i wore the leather jacket on a quick trip up to chicago this past saturday, so pics of that outfit will be up tomorrow or wednesday!
on a side note - i don’t buy things because they are trendy (and these two definitely are right now), but i will buy trendy things when they work with me and my tastes, and when they will fit seamlessly within my existing wardrobe. i think this is how you guys can streamline your shopping process too! i can see myself wearing these over and over again with the clothing i already own, and thinking like this before purchasing an item makes updating my closet so much easier, and less expensive too :)

you guys HAVE to follow this tumblr blog: allaboutthebadkids.
the guy behind it is a 19-year-old photographer in NYC, and this week he's standing outside all of the shows and taking pics of models. if there's one thing i love about NYFW, it's model-off-duty shots, and these are just ahhhmazing!
can't wait to see more (i know you can't either).
