If I could paint a world for myself, it would be varying shades of olive green and blush pink (with black and grey accents of course). Lately I have just been so inspired by this color combo: its versatility in pieces for every occasion, the relevancy it keeps throughout every season, and how both colors seems to work as neutrals, complementing everything I can pair them with, including each other. I love a good long-line duster and found this vest at Target, and actually bought a romper of the same style. I went back and forth between this one and a more army-esque style, but decided the lighter weight of this fabric would be ideal for summer layering. My work and casual wear are almost one in the same, and thankfully for me, the athlesure of fashion seems to be sticking around, so you will consistently find me pairing dresses with my most comfortable kicks; these Nike Freeforms literally feel like walking on air. This dress is easily going to be one of my most worn pieces in my closet now, as Old Navy continues to kill the fast fashion game. The midi length adds an element of class that seemlessly took me from work, to a coffee date, and then out to an evening social event. And the ribbed t-shirt texture is so comfortable while still showing off my curves.

On a side note, I always take advantage of the warmer/ridiculously humid temps to go a little less high-maintenance with my hair. And with that, I think I'm finally finding my stride with this whole baby-bun thing. Riveting, I know.

  1. The bar staff at this place was professional and their drinks ensured us a fun night in the city. I can't wait to go back. Most of the negative elements of going to a more popular place are avoided here; the staff at Chicago venues was really mature and respectful.
