Overalls + A Striped Tee

overalls + a striped teeA classic spring look is definitely overalls + a striped tee. This ‘lil striped amour tee is one of my favorites because my brother and sister got it for me from France last summer. (See how I first styled it here.) I also just discovered that you can buy the brand Maison Labiche on ASOS! It looks like they started a new addiction for me. Not only are the shirts super cute, but comfortable and classic!

Every day my style evolves and lately I’ve been gravitating more towards basics, with a twist obviously. I had this urge to purge everything in my closet and start fresh (asides some items that I will never let go of like these fitted overalls and GAP leather jacket that I’ve had forever). I’m still in the midst of this process because I have too much stuff, but I’m hoping to finish by this weekend. My virtual closet is looking pretty stylish if you ask me, but it’s time for my lovelies to find new homes. Does anybody else ever get the urge to refresh your closet?! Maybe it’s because I’m tired of seeing my winter wardrobe, but I think the simplicity of my new goal will be a good thing for me!

Below are plenty of options of skinny overalls (because a fitted overall is the key to not looking like you’re twelve) along with basically my new Maison Labiche wardrobe and all the red pointy flats you could ever dream of in your closet! amourmaison labiche denim overalls and pointy red flatsblue and white striped teegap brown leather jacketlong hair

How To Wear A Summer Dress In The Winter

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.

Black Velvet

laughing in a black velvet wrap dress in front of palm muralIf you’re looking to fill the black velvet dress void in your life, ladies, then you’ve waited just long enough to score this dress for $17! Yes, you read that correctly. I love how versatile this dress is. First of all, it’s a wrap dress with tassel ties – how unique. I layered the dress with a striped turtleneck because I wanted a more casual/fancy day look into night look AND because it’s still cold out. The pink accessories add just the right amount of color and contrast and my mom’s earrings add a touch of vintage.

I also wore this dress to my friend’s holiday party, without the shirt, with a sequin jacket and silver heels. Don’t let me mislead you into thinking it’s warmer than it really is because I’m not wearing tights, but it has been more bearable being outside. There are so many ways to wear and layer this dress that it would be a shame if it wasn’t in your closet. Plus, it gives me major 90s nostalgia wearing it and that’s truly what I’m grateful for today.black velvet wrap dress in front of palm mural smiling in black velvet wrap dress with pink purse in front of palm mural portrait wearing black deep v velvet dress with black and white stripe shirt black velvet wrap dress with black and white stripe turtleneck and pink accessories in front of palm mural black velvet wrap dress in front of palm mural at eden chicagoWho What Wear: Dress // ZARA: Shoes (option) // Club Monaco: Clutch (option) // Old Navy: Shirt (option) // LOFT: Sunglasses // Earrings: Vintage from my mom (option)
