black on black on cork…on black

Back in October, I blogged about these black faux leather track pants that I fell in love with and clearly, our love affair has not fizzled. I wore them through the winter with boots and sweaters and now I can wear them with a crop or tank top for the spring. It was the perfect weather to wear them paired with a black crop top (I love black on black) as it was the typical breezy, somewhere in the 50’s, sunny but still chilly type of Chicago day. The perfect kind of days. I may need to take a break from my love affair with them in the summer since they’re lined. Faux leather lined pants + hot summer Chicago days do not mix. Sorry, lover. It’s not you, it’s me.

Now let’s talk about this clutch! The multi-colored splatter paint design against the cork-like pattern of the clutch caught my eye immediately as I was walking through Akira.

So fun and so versatile, this clutch may be my new go-to…or until the next one;)

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Like Stella’s groove, I’m back!

Hi all,
Okay I know, I took the entire Winter off and then some. But it’s hard to blog in 5 feet of snow and when the sun, that barely peaked its head out, went down every day by 4pm. So the elements were against me. That, added with my laziness and loathing of any temperature under 40 degrees, meant a recipe for a long hiatus. I’m being extreme. Maybe it was 4 feet.
But this weather now?! Yes, please! I’m obsessed with these mid-60’s, slightly cloudy, breezy type of days. Spring has always been one of my favorite seasons and it won’t be long until it’s full on summertime (which I’m also excited about) so I try to soak up each Spring beautiful day. This is one of my favorite Springtime outfits when we’re walking around the neighborhood and exploring what new shops, restaurants, graffiti art, etc. has popped up around Wicker Park. A long sleeved crop top is great for this weather when you’re caught in the shade and the breeze catches you sending you brief chills. A high waisted maxi skirt and my gray canvas plimsolls are the perfect match for this cute and comfy crop. Bring it on, breeze!
