Holly & Tanager Sidekick MiniYesterday, I was featured on Holly & Tanager’s blog and it was such an honor! This Chicago-based handbag company, is pushing the handbag industry towards style, function and organization. I love all their handbag designs, but especially the Sidekick Mini – it even has two secret pockets! I love a good secret pocket. Below are some photos from a Holly & Tanager photoshoot from a few weeks ago. It was the perfect springlike morning way back in February and the skyline made for an amazing backdrop.

You can read about my interview here and do a little bit of shopping here.

Desert Dreaming

chicago blogger peggy kolliasI’m definitely desert dreaming over here! Maybe my desert dreams will come true because every time I wear my Jambu shoes, I always turn into an Adventurer! I’m also thinking that Sahalie will bring me good luck as well because they, too, have an adventurous spirit and love for the outdoors. I don’t think my stars could be anymore aligned! Crossing my fingers…

I’m kind of obsessed with this entire outfit. Where to begin?! From the coziest gray sweater with a pop of color layer, to the fun fringe earrings and the lace chambray drawstring pants everything is sooo chic and comfortable. This is the perfect spring outfit that can easily be transitioned to summer or those cool desert nights or some exploring in the conservatory 😉 I’m also a huge fan of these Naomi shoes. I can wear these all day without my feet getting tired even with the wedge because of the memory foam. I also love that they are eco-friendly made with recycled rubber. Now that’s a shoe with a good cause.

spinning in the cityHappy Fri-YAY loves! I’m so excited that it’s finally the weekend and that it is the end of the third quarter of school. You know what this means, right?! One more quarter until SUMMER 🙂 I’ll be secretly doing a happy dance all day today just for that reason alone. What better outfit than to do my happy dance with, but with this faux leather fringe skirt. I haven’t worn it in a while, but I thought it was appropriate for today!

I’m also so happy that I can wear these heels again without tights. I love that I can tie them in so many ways and they kind of make me feel like a fancy ballerina. Which secretly I wanted to be a ballerina. Okay, enough secret revealings for today – haha. I’m hoping the weekend forecast will be pleasant so I can go city exploring. What does everybody have planned for this weekend?  peace sign white off the shoulder top wayfarer sunglasses black and white combo white and black fringe outfit black fringe skirt
