gap leather skirt and madewell side tie cropped shirtIt’s back to wearing leather skirts and tights… Chicago, please make up your mind on who you truly want to be. No more of this back and forth cold to hot all within a day. Anyway, at least I like my leather skirt that I’ve had for almost ten years! The thing about this skirt is that it still looks new and in season. It’s good to invest in a piece like this because as you can see for yourself, it’s timeless. I’m also happy that I can still fit in it – makes me feel young 😉 Are there any pieces in your closet that are timeless?

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…

Plum Peplum

plum peplum peggy kolliasDo you ever go window shopping with no intention of buying something just to browse for inspiration and then stumble upon a magical dress for the right price? Well, that’s just what happened with this plum peplum dress which was from Eva Longoria’s Limited collection. It was only $30 because the store was closing, so it’s unfortunate that it closed, but I’m lucky that I found it 🙂 It really is a magical dress because once I’m zipped up, it hugs everything in the right place and the perfect amount. I never wear body forming dresses, but I decided to take a fashion risk with this one and it worked in my favor.

For a brief moment, it was safe to wear this dress with no tights, but it’s back to wearing tights. And since it’s since technically winter, I wore a moto leather jacket to make the dress a bit more funky. I really like the side asymmetrical peplum of this dress because usually peplum goes all around the waist and this one is different, which I like. I also can’t stop wearing these ZARA heels. For their height, they’re actually quite comfortable and basically match my entire winter wardrobe.

On another note, I have a fun girls’ night dinner planned tonight (maybe I’ll wear this ‘lil number again) and I can’t wait! It’s basically the only thing getting me through this dreary rainy day…
