black floral print summer dressHow to wear a summer dress in the winter is really easy. First, take your favorite summer dress and start layering! Wear some tights, booties and a chambray shirt. Tie it up to give yourself a defined waist. You can also wear a sweater over the dress and don’t be afraid to add color! A bright sweater can definitely change your mood in an instant! You can even wear a chambray shirt and a sweater for some extra warmth!

Since the weather in Chicago, changes constantly (remember last weekend when it was 70 degrees?!), I like to keep my entire wardrobe in my closet. I used to pack away seasonal items, but now I just keep everything out all the time and layer or de-layer accordingly. This way, I get more wear out of my clothes than just when they are in season, per se.

Leopard IS a Neutral

Leopard IS a Neutral - 6Leopard IS a neutral, if you ask me. My go to outfit is usually a denim (chambray) shirt with black jeans. I love this effortless look because it gives just enough contrast, yet it’s so easy to pair these neutrals with other neutrals or pops of color.

I couldn’t help myself when I found these leopard print booties at Old Navy on sale for only $13! They are the perfect fall booties that coordinate well with my (sister’s) leopard bracelet, tortoise frames and cat ring, of course. I may also have this thing with cat prints ūüėČ

Chambray + Linen

chambray-linen - 6My new fabric combination of lately is chambray + linen. I’m definitely a repeat offender when it comes to my chambray shirts, but I just love how you can wear them with anything. I got this skirt last summer and had originally only worn it with a tank top. I wanted to switch up the look, so of course I wore it with one of my chambray shirts. This is the perfect summer daytime look and I only had to look within my closet to put it altogether!
