Holly & Tanager Sidekick MiniYesterday, I was featured on Holly & Tanager’s blog and it was such an honor! This Chicago-based handbag company, is pushing the handbag industry towards style, function and organization. I love all their handbag designs, but especially the Sidekick Mini – it even has two secret pockets! I love a good secret pocket. Below are some photos from a Holly & Tanager photoshoot from a few weeks ago. It was the perfect springlike morning way back in February and the skyline made for an amazing backdrop.

You can read about my interview here and do a little bit of shopping here.

Secret Garden

secret garden

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…
