What Why Where: Spring-ish

With yesterday being the first day of Spring (which in Chicago doesn’t mean much, it’s just a little less Winter…and that’s only if we’re lucky), I thought I’d try an unconventional look for the new season. A bit sporty, a little fancy and a whole lotta OMG I’M SHOWING SOME SKIN AND NOT TOTALLY FREEZING.

The Bag Edit

I thought about doing one of those “what’s in my bag?” posts then I realized it wouldn’t be that exciting. Why? (besides the fact that keys and lip balm probably don’t have you at the edge of your seat).

With bags getting smaller and smaller (remember, size matters) I’ve learned to carry only the absolute necessities. So I thought I’d combine two posts in one (because there’s only so much I can talk about pressed powder and hand lotion) for the ultimate bag edit.

What Why Where: Right Side Of The Tracks

You know those miracle winter days when it’s not below freezing and you suddenly think it’s spring and heavy coats are no longer necessary? Today is not one of those days…but over the weekend (when these were taken) it was pretty decent. Although I learned the hard way, not decent enough to get away with just a sweater jacket. Oops.

What Why Where: Orange & Oversized

What’s better than oversized outerwear? Bright colored oversized outerwear…that could easily be mistaken for a neon tent and make you look like you have shrunken arms.

What Why Where: Missing London

It’s been almost two months since I got back from London and all I have to show for it is a fake British accent and some awesome clothes…so because I can’t have the Tube, Dover Street Market and Kate Middleton in my backyard, I opted for this.
