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 😉 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.

Gray Peplum

Gray Peplum1It’s back to the basics – gray and black that is. April weather is definitely a bit annoying because one day it’s sunny and the following day it’s cold and rainy. Oh, Chicago… I do love this outfit though and all the little details; especially the exposed back zipper. My main goal today is to get through the busy day. Let’s do this Wednesday!Gray Peplum6Gray Peplum4Gray Peplum3Peplum: Gap // Jeans: J.Brand (similar) // Backpack: Kelsi Dagger (similar) // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

Crop Top

croptopThe crop top is this week’s feature on Tuesday Trends. Yesterday’s post featured a floral crop top, but today it’s all about the black, white, gray and patterned crop top. Like I said yesterday, crop tops have been this summer’s hottest trends. There are so many ways to wear one without having to feel uncomfortable. My favorite way to wear a crop top is with a high waisted skirt – elastic skirts are great and any length make a great match.

If it’s your first time wearing one, which I love experimenting with new trends, try a longer and basic color one. If you’re feeling bold I highly recommend these awesome patterned tops.

If you try out this trend, @ me on instagram and show me how you styled your crop top or leave a comment below.
