Home Sweet Columbus

Hello sunshines! With the recent Columbus movie that was released, which highlights the architecture of my hometown Columbus, IN, I thought I would showcase some of the landmarks! It was August when we went back home to visit my family, so my outfits are definitely a bit on the summery side; however, I think I’m wearing pieces that can be […]

Bold, edgy, & classic – 337 Brand

Hello sunshines! Happy April! Can’t believe how fast time is flying by! How are we already a quarter done with 2017?! Anyway, the title of this post is called “bold, edgy, & classic, and that’s because I love clothes that encompass all three of those characteristics. This is exactly why I was so excited to discover 337 Brand and to […]

Blending in with Nature

Hello sunshines! Holiday season is upon us! Can’t believe Thanksgiving is in two days and 2016 will be over in a little over a month…time is flying by so fast! We went back to West Bloomfield, Michigan a few weekend’s ago for an early Thanksgiving celebration with Mr. Photographer’s family; we had lots and lots and lots and lots of delicious food and wine and by 8 pm that Saturday, all of us were on the couch and no one could move!! It just so happened that college football was on too. Wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a little football (according to Mr. Photographer, LOL). The weather was perfect that weekend too, so we all went for a little walk the next morning at a nearby nature reserve. I have a cozy sleeveless turtleneck tunic on and it’s seriously the best thing ever for fall/winter when temperatures start to drop! I actually wore a pair of rainboots to walk through the nature reserve and changed to my booties only when we had to take pictures…I was warned that it may be muddy!!! Sleeveless Turtleneck Tunic: Banana Republic (last season’s but similar styles here and here from The Limited, and how CUTE is this fringed version?!) // Top: J.Crew Perfect-fit scoopneck shirt shirt // Jeans: 7 for All Mankind (old but currently eyeing this pair by Joe’s Jeans –Jerlyn) // Bootie: Nordstrom Rack (similar version by Lucky Brand and BP, peep-toe version […]

Corduroy & Over the Knee Boots

Hello sunshines! It has been a while since my last post, 3 weeks to be exact. Life has been crazy hectic lately! Mr. Photographer and I have been on the road every single weekend the past few weeks and this trend is going to continue until the first week of December. Also, I wanted to share some exciting news with all of you – I’m getting my MBA part-time at Northwestern! It’s my first quarter of classes, so balancing work, life, and school has kept me quite busy…which is also contributing to why my blog posts have been so infrequent. Adulting is hard, am I right?! Anyway, this past weekend, Mr. Photographer and I went back to my hometown in Columbus, IN to celebrate my little brother’s 14th birthday. I can’t believe that he’s already a freshman in high school and is growing up so fast! I always enjoy going home to spend time with my family and wish that home was closer…how about 20 mins instead of the 4 hour drive! So my little brother was the one that suggested that I take pictures next to the iconic bridge in Columbus. Many of you may not know that Columbus is actually an architectural gem and named “a Midwestern Mecca of Architecture!” I will have to stop by more hot architectural spots for pictures the next I visit home :). Columbus is further south so I was super lucky to […]

Lincoln Park // White After Labor Day

Hello sunshines! Who’s ready for October?! Pumpkin and apple picking season is upon us and I could not be more excited! Mr. Photographer aka boo and I have an apple picking date coming up! How about you?? There’s so much to look forward to about fall, from cozy slouchy sweaters, to burning amazing smelling candles (bath & body works, anyone?!), to Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Halloween! Living in the city makes me miss passing out candy to all the adorable trick-or-treaters! When you the hear the words, fall fashion, you immediately think of booties, sweaters, plaid scarfs, and grays/blacks etc; however, I personally don’t see why the color white is excluded from the mix! Over the weekend, I was chatting with some girlfriends about wearing white after Labor Day, and it was mixed feelings for a lot of them. I’m all for white after Labor Day!  The color white is such a staple in my wardrobe (as it is in many of your closets, I’m sure), so why limit yourself because of a so-called “fashion rule?” So, on today’s post, I’m showing you my white after Labor Day style. It was 85 degrees over the weekend so I went with a thin top, but I’m excited to wear cozy chunky sweaters/cardigans and even blazers with white jeans! Outfit details below! ๐Ÿ™‚ My colorful striped top is from The Limited – it’s a top I’ll wear to work (either by itself […]

Navy Pier // Lace & Booties

Hello sunshines! Hope everyone is enjoying these warm fall days we’re having! I know I am! This past weekend we were running our 20 miler on Sunday, so we snoozed until 9 AM and then decided to be touristy and explore Navy Pier. I haven’t been to Navy Pier yet this year and they just replaced the famous ferris wheel there not too long ago. The view there is also AHMAZING – you get unobstructed views of the Chicago skyline from the south to the north, so beautiful! Since it was like 80 degrees already around 10 AM, I was seriously debating between a flowy summer dress and sandals or something that was a little bit more fall-y. I ultimately decided to go with the more fall-y option (booties mean fall, right?!) and went with a long-sleeved open back shirt, a blue lace skirt, and booties! I cannot wait to wear this blue lace skirt sometime in October when the weather gets cooler and I’ll pair it with my favorite chunky sweater :)! Also, I’ve owned this entire outfit for years now and they are still in fabulous condition! I am all for buying clothing that are good quality and will last. That being said, I did decide it was time to treat myself and buy myself a new pair of booties that are maybe in a maroon/burgundy color…check out what I’m eyeing below! Shirt: Urban Outfitters (old) // Skirt: […]
