Roxy

pink skater dress with denim jacketI’m in LOVE with ROXY! I don’t think I’ve ever loved a “thing” as much as I do my new favorite crossbody handbag. I just think she’s the most adorable handbag in the world. If I can’t have fun with fashion, then I don’t want to be a style blogger!! Honestly, she was a bit of a splurge, but I just couldn’t help myself (use code SPICEITUP for an additional 25% off). Some people have pets, I have Roxy ūüôā

Asides, proclaiming my love for Roxy, I love being on spring break. I know it’s Thursday and it’s my first post of the week, but I’ve been “relaxing” or at least trying to. Although, I would have preferred to be on vacation, I’ve been laying low at home. Most days I’ve been catching up on more reading and I saw season one of Stranger Things – so creepy.¬†I know I’m behind on popular culture, but that’s what break is all about, right?!

Back to spring fashion! I’ve also done a lot of spring cleaning and listed a bunch of items in my closet. A good closet clean is great because I’m trying to wear my clothes as much as possible without buying new items. While doing so, I found my pins and spruced up my denim jacket. How cute is this cassette pin my sister got me from Paris last year! I’m obsessed. And this blue nail polish is from Paris too. The lizard is from Greece and the flower pin is from an old Nanette Lepore jacket that I’ve had for years. I don’t think Roxy minds sharing this outfit post with those friends. Now, if only spring break would last forever…

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 ūüėČ 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.

You can shop my entire outfit by using the promocode: LIFESREADYP for 30 % off on sahalie.com now through April 4th.
