City Girl

This is the perfect city girl look. A cute statement dress with black and gold accessories is super chic and classic. These gold-heeled booties are perfect for running down Michigan Avenue or grabbing a bite to eat on Randolph Street. This look can be worn year round, but definitely with tights and a winter coat now. I am also biased because this is one of my favorite color combinations, but it looks good on everyone! What are your thoughts Chicagoans?

P.S. Don’t forget your red lips!

Leopard Love

leopard-loveleopard-loveleopard-loveleopard-loveleopard-loveleopard-loveleopard-love leopard-loveSamantha is back on HAMR with another fall trend collaboration. Our last collaboration was all things burgundy infused, which is definitely the hot color for this fall. This week we’re showcasing another hot trend – leopard.

We definitely have a lot of leopard love. I really like Samantha’s coat because it’s such a great way to incorporate leopard into your wardrobe by making a bold statement. I accented leopard with my accessories, making my look a bit more subtle. Both looks can we worn from day to night and coincidentally we both wore black, which is always a great idea.

You’ll probably be seeing Samantha more on the blog in the upcoming weeks because we have some great events coming up. Stay tuned for those dates and remember to click over onto her blog for more photos and details from our collaboration.

twotwotwotwotwotwotwotwotwotwoTwo. Wow! Today marks my second blogiversary, if you couldn’t tell. I’m definitely in awe of what HAMR has evolved into in just two years and am so happy and appreciative of all the love and support from my readers.

I started HAMR two years ago with a mindset of self-discovery and documenting my evolving style. It was also a creative outlet for both my sister, Eleni and I to share our creativity and to focus our attention away from our day jobs; plus, it gave us an excuse to hang out together since we didn’t live together anymore. Eleni (and my mom Angie, who make up Limani Designs) not only takes my photos, but she’s really my number one supporter and I’d be lost without her.

I can’t even begin to thank everybody else who has supported me and has been here for me. So many great opportunities have happened with HAMR over the last year and I’m still amazed by it all. I’ve also met a great network of bloggers this past year and have formed some great friendships.

If you asked me last year if I expected any of this, I would have said no. I’ve been growing side by side with HAMR these last couple of years and I’m really excited to see what’s next for us.

XOXO,
Peggy
