Military Chic

Military Chic - 1I’m happy the weather cooperated this weekend and I got to wear my new fabulous lightweight coat that was seriously made for me and is sooo military chic. First of all, it has the letter P on it and all the patches pretty much sum up my life. Sometimes I think I’m really twelve years old by the things that I find amusing. Who doesn’t want a coat with a dinosaur, flamingo, star, lightning bolt and other random things on it?! Oh yeah, and the not-so-secret lipstick patch on the back 😉 Have a great week!

The Weekender

The Weekender - 1My quest for the perfect weekender bag has been accomplished and wouldn’t it be nice if the weekend lasted five days instead of just two?! You have no idea how much is packed into this bag and since my spring break is coming up, I’ll definitely have to show you how I pack. The bag is canvas with leather accents and for a special touch, I splurged another ten dollars to get it monogrammed. I figured this is a great investment piece, so why not. (Side note, it’s non-returnable when monogrammed.) I can’t wait to jet out of Chicago real soon.

The Traveling Dress

the traveling dressI’m sure you’ve read or seen the story of The Traveling Pants, but have you heard of The Traveling Dress?! Well, this INC jacquard dress was originally my mom’s and then my older sister wore it for a bit and somehow I went into my sister’s closet and took it and never gave it back (oops!)

One of the benefits of growing up with two sisters was that we would always borrow each other’s clothes and still do so today; to a certain extent. Although, it’s harder to borrow my younger sister’s clothes in Melbourne, we always swap when we are visiting each other. I paired this dress with a double buckle belt to give some structure to my silhouette and since it’s still transitional weather here in Chicago, I’m trying to get as much wear out of my over the knee boots as much as possible and my favorite moto jacket. I’m definitely excited that spring is here earlier than expected, but let’s hope it sticks around for a while.
