It’s sort of crazy to me that we’re getting married in just five months and with most of the planning behind us, I’ve been dreaming about what our apartment will look like. We don’t know where we’re moving yet, but the plan is to stay in Chicago and possibly move into a high rise and experience that type of living for a year or so!
I love decorating, but holding back on girlier accessories and all white bedding has been a little hard, but I’ve been playing around and this is one of the designs I’ve been working on. I don’t know how Rob will feel about a purple pillow, but he knows I like color, and I don’t think it’s too over the top! My only concern is that it looks a little dark. But maybe that’s just because it’s a mockup? What do you think?!
Running my own business, no day is ever quite the same! While I do love that, it’s sometimes hard to figure out to put on in the morning that can carry me through the day from phone calls at my desk, design work, meeting with clients (and sometimes friends!), and events at night. Having some go-to pieces that are both sophisticated, versatile and timeless is super important. Even more important than that, is feeling both comfortable and confident in what I’m wearing. That really completes an outfit for me!
As most of us are working gals, getting dressed some mornings can be a challenge, but Jones New York makes it easier. Their pieces are effortless and work really well together, which means you can easily mix-and-match tops and bottoms and then add accessories and shoes to finish your look.
I love the soft feminine cut of this shirt paired with this simple, tailored pencil skirt. There’s just something so timeless and classic about this combination that I’ll always love!
It’s perfect for a day at work, to a happy hour with friends and a dinner date with Rob. The best part? I feel amazing the whole day and go from one event to the next, seamlessly. If you’re like me, walking out the door feeling great in what you’re wearing, makes for a more productive and happier girl!

I think a lot of us have a ‘dream bag’ that we know we’ll own someday, but not right now. For me, this Chloé bag is one. The size is perfect, not too big, not too small, and the option to carry it either as a shoulder bag or cross body is ideal for my lifestyle. The actual design of this bag is really what makes me love it.
It’s chic, yet still has a bit of a boho look that I adore! It’s not covered in logos that scream ‘I’m fancy & expensive’ — even though it is, class act right there! The leather is absolutely gorgeous and the detailed stitching is just perfection. Haha, I’m starting to sound like a salesperson, right?! Seriously though, I just love this bag, ever since I saw a very very lucky girl carrying one when I was in college.
I don’t have one now, but this is definitely an investment piece that I’m saving for in the future. The hardest part will be deciding on a color. Right now, grey is my favorite, what’s yours?
