chicago blogger peggy kolliasThis ‘lil secret garden is such a great little spot to escape the cold! Now if I told you the location, it wouldn’t be so secret. I’m so sad that winter decided to come back because I loved how I felt when it was 70 degrees out the other week, so I’m giving winter the cold shoulder 😉 Anyway, this is my go-to dress when I have no idea what to wear. It’s simple, yet unique at the same time. Stripes are always in season and depending on the shoes and accessories, it can be worn year round. Take a look back at how I also wore this dress in Military Chic. 

All the pretty flowers and their bright colors make me feel so peaceful and calm. I don’t have a green thumb, but I can appreciate the beauty of the natural world. I do love taking floral photographs for Limani Designs and this is the perfect place to practice. Now, to find other secret gardens…

Plum Stripes + Polka Dots

Plum Stripes + Polka Dots - 1Happy Monday! I’m happy that there is one week left until winter break and I’m sooo ready for it! I also can’t believe that 2015 is quickly coming to an end.

Now that the holiday season is in full force, instead of wearing the traditional red and green colors, I opted for plum hues and dark aqua green adding some stripes and polka dots this past weekend. Also, the fact that I didn’t need a coat this weekend is completely insane, but at least I get more wear out of my clothes.

Fri(es) Day

Charlie Brown - 4Is it just me, or did it seem like this was the never-ending week?! I’m so glad that it’s finally Fri(es) Day! Let the weekend festivities begin 🙂 How fun is this T-Shirt?! It totally spoke to me at Zara and I couldn’t pass it up at only $7.90! I love the retro-ness (new word, trust me) of this entire look from the varsity (thrifted) jacket, to the cat-eye glasses. I think blinged out Snoopy and Woodstock totally approve and hopefully Charlie Brown does too!

XOXO!
