peace - 3I’m laughing genuinely in these photos, but inside I’m sad because I had to say peace out to summer vacation this week. I can’t believe that the new school year started yesterday and I’m already so busy with everything. I loved the first day of school as a kid because of all the new school supplies and finding out who were my teachers and new classmates. And of course, getting a new fall wardrobe. Luckily, with the 90s trends coming back I can sort of relieve my youth.

Now, going back to school is a bit rough because I have to get used to the new schedule/what I’m teaching and figure out what to wear everyday haha. Hopefully, this will be a great year. It’s also kind of funny that at the beginning of the year I go from wearing pumps and wedges to sneakers everyday by the end of the year. I love a good sneaker + skirt/dress combo anyway, so it’s totally work appropriate ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now, let’s see how long that will last this year! Happy new school year to all my teacher friends!

Swagger - 10How beautiful is this Swagger Coach handbag?! It’s seriously a piece of artwork and quite possibly the most beautiful handbag in my collection. I can’t believe I have already found my fall handbag, mostly because I can’t believe fall is upon us. When did that happen? And when did it become sweater weather already, Chicago?! Yesterday was a bit chilly, but I’m hoping we still have some summer days left! The new school year official starts tomorrow as well, so it’s time to get back to a regular routine. So long summer.. I had a blast and I can’t wait to see you again..Swagger - 1 Swagger - 11 Swagger - 4 Swagger - 5 Swagger - 6 Swagger - 7 Swagger - 8 Swagger - 2 Swagger - 3 Swagger - 9Coach c/o: Swagger Handbagย // Zara: Skirt (option) // Loft: Sweater (option) & Sunglassesย // Banana Republic: Shoes (option) // Essie Nailpolish: Butler Please and Ruffles & Feathers

Garden Party

Garden Party - 2One of my favorite events from this summer was this garden party (photo)ย at Blue Door Kitchen & Garden. I felt like I was in France with all the beautiful flowers and oh-so perfect decor details on the outdoor patio. I seriously can’t wait for chillier weather to eat inside the restaurant too. It’s just sooo pretty and delicious!

A garden party definitely calls for a cute outfit as well. My knit tank is one I’ve had in my closet forever but this was the first time I paired it with this electric blue mini skirt (an amazing find from Crossroads Trading) tucked in for a more feminine feel rather than hanging loose. That’s a great way to change up your wardrobe. I know I’m guilty of always pairing the same top and bottom together, but you never know what new combination you can create once you switch up your pieces in your closet that you already have!

Oxfords are always great to have year round too. You can wear them dressed up or down. Stick with a neutral color though for more wear. Top off your outfit with a perfect pair of sunnies and you’re all set to smell the flowers and have a cocktail or two!ย Garden Party - 4 Garden Party - 1 Garden Party - 3 Garden Party - 5Knit Tank: (option) // J.Crew via Crossroads: Skirt (option) // Old Navy: Oxfords (option) // Hermes: Bracelets (option) // Ray-Ban: Sunglasses

pink romper - 1How cute is this pink romper and mural!? I’m going to miss wearing effortless rompers like this one once the weather starts getting chillier. I’m a fan of layers, but I like getting all the Vitamin D possible ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m loving my minimalist style a lot lately. It’s also prepping me for work dressing again. I don’t like spending too much time thinking of an outfit, especially when I’m getting ready for work at five in the morning, but I like being put together and professional. Don’t worry, I’ll still blog my favorite weekend wear, but I’ll be mixing in some more work outfits soon. Hope everybody is off to a great week.pink romper - 5 pink romper - 8 pink romper - 4 pink romper - 6 pink romper - 3 pink romper - 10 pink romper - 7 pink romper - 9 pink romper - 11 pink romper - 2Lush: Romper (option) // Urban Outfitters: Sandals (option) // Coach: Bangle (option) // Ralph Lauren: Sunglasses (option)

llama - 2My favorite llama shirt is back on HAMR, slightly different from last time. Having a little fun with fashion is always my number one goal! I love wearing graphic tees with distressed denim and funky heels. A simple, yet put together look. Plus, wearing a shirt like this means never knowing who will strike up a conversation with you on the street ๐Ÿ˜‰
