Camel Coats & Low V's

It's 70 here in Chicago today ( and it's still February FYI) and what do you do, when you get a touch of spring in the winter? Put on a cute outfit and get outside! I mean I stepped outside and was like "Hey, girl, hey!" when I felt how amazing it was! I met my girls for brunch in this look, and spent as much time as I could out of the house! Such a great way to beat the winter blues, and not sure when it'll feel like this again...but I'm taking full advantage of it!

Finally broke out a coat I purchased from Whitefox Boutique a long time ago. It's one of those statement coats, that's not warm enough to wear in the dead of winter, but too hot to wear in the summer? I paired this camel coat with my fave low V bodysuit, some skinny jeans, and switched it up with a hat! This look could have easily been a winter look with a sweater, riding boots, and scarf , but was super easy to lighten up and add a spring feel to it.

Yes, girl, yes!

Be My Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day my loves! I hope all of you have a beautiful day today, and take time to spend with the one or "ones" you love. :) Valentine's is probably my least favorite holiday, but I don't mind it because it's just another excuse to eat chocolate and cupcakes all day with no judgement! I do see that there are alot of single women this Valentine's day, and dare I say it, I think it's 100% okay to be single for Valentines. I actually don't mind being single on this holiday, because it gives me and my girlfriends an excuse to grab dinner, and drinks, and celebrate the beautiful women we are! We call this "Galentine's Day"! So if you are alone this holiday, and feeling bummed that you don't have a special guy to shower you with love today...don't worry...let those around you shower you with love! Spread some love to other people! Call your aunt you never talk to, just to wish her a Happy V Day! This day isn't about cards, teddy bears, flowers, jewelry, or whatever tickles your fancy. It's about love, and showing love to any and everyone you talk to this day.

So I love you, and sending you all my mushy gushy vibes today, and demanding that you feel empowered today, beautiful today, and most of all loved.

Layers To This Ish

Getting beautiful weather here in the Chi for winter, I hope it stays this way! (cross my fingers)
It's certainly not hot, but it's not too cold either so I'm getting away with certain pieces of my wardrobe, that should probably be stored away right now for winter :) **cue these knee high boots**  However, I was headed to brunch on Oak St., and couldn't disappoint myself or my girls for a good weekend slay! Loved playing with layers for this look. I wouldn't normally pair two jackets with two different hem lengths...but I fell in love with this cranberry jacket from Windsor! Instead of just wearing my regular leather jacket, that I absolutely love and adore, but the Windsor jacket gave it a completely different look! Outfit links below!

Weekend MOOD: Celebrations!

Ahh! Finally the weekend! Seriously this will be my mood. Balloons, cake, champagne, confetti...I mean I'm literally in celebration mode the entire weekend! Wishing a very special Happy Birthday to my Mama! (she's currently pissy about me not giving her any of my food, even though she's on her way out to dinner :) ) For those of you that know my mom, or have met her you know she is my world. If you're on Facebook, wish her a Happy Birthday!
