Thick Gold Bands

The thick bands with coils seen in the Balenciaga show stopped me in my tracks.  Love this showstopping all finger accessory.  I thought maybe the bands + the coils might be a little much for me but the bands on their own, sign me up!  I found several options at every price point.  I have the ASOS ones on order and will be sure to post a pic on instagram when I get them!  If you haven’t yet, don’t forget to follow me there!

Layers Upon Layers

Forever21 Shirt  |  Aritzia Sweater  |  Mackage Leather Jacket  |  Maison Scotch Shearling Vest (similar)

It is finally feeling like Spring here in Chicago so thought I’d get this post up and out of the way.  This outfit is from last week when it was still pretty chilly out and really hoping this will be the last winter look I post this season.
This post is another layering story.  Stock your closet with lots of layering pieces in neutral colors and you can create dozens of new and interesting looks.  Btw…is anyone else sad that “Ready for Love” got cancelled? 
Speaking of love…7 years ago on this day, hubby and I committed our lives to one another and haven’t looked back since.  Steak and frites, if you’re reading this….saranghae..

Freezing Florals

Zara floral top (similar)  |  rag & bone jeans  |  Maison Scotch vest  |  L.A.M.B. shoes (similar)
Aritzia coat (similar)  |  Celine bag  |  Cartier watch  |  Madewell, Jules Smith, Giles & Brother bracelets

Um…last I checked, we’re a week from May and somehow it is still freezing here in Chicago.  I got this floral shirt at the end of last summer and have been waiting to wear it all winter long.  I finally decided…screw the weather, it’s my life and I’ll wear florals if I want to.  Of course, being that it was freezing and all, I still had to top it off with a shearling vest and a wool coat.  Spring…this isn’t funny anymore.  Where are you?

Sheer Overlay Dress

Mason by Michelle Mason Shift Dress with Insets

I wrote about sheer overlays on my favorite Spring trends post last month.  I’ve been seeing these kinds of dresses everywhere but this Mason by Michelle Mason number is the best of the best.  I’ve been stalking it for a month and it just dropped in price from $462 to $324.  Sadly, I don’t have an occasion to wear this dress for but if you’re in the market for a sexy mama dress, this one’s for you!
