I put together another all white look for NYFW Day 2.  I know it’s on trend now but I was pleased to find so many all white looks coming down the runways for Spring/Summer 2014 as well!  The grid pattern on the top adds a lot of interest and breaks up the white.  I decided to use silver jewelry to keep the look really crisp and clean and of course, all the stacked necklaces were the piece de resistance.

Chicago has hit that dreaded 90 degree weather and it’s been pretty miserable being outdoors.  When it’s this hot out, all I want to wear is a silky, flowy sheath.  Nothing tight fitting or any form of denim is bearable in this weather.  I’ve been wearing this Aritzia racerback number a lot this summer.  I’ve worn this to dinner with blank ankle boots in the Spring and it works just as well with flip flops on a muggy summer day.

Party like it’s 1999~

One of my close college girlfriends came into town this weekend and it was a blast! The weekend consisted of lots of catching up, enjoying good food together and laughing hysterically while reminiscing.
Here I am with my girlfriend from LA. We were lace sistas that night!
Fun times!
Forgot to take an outfit pic but there I am on the right and here are the deets.
Aritzia lace top, Tart leggings, blazer that I bought in Korea over 10 years ago for job interviews, J.Crew & Nashelle necklaces, Chanel flap bag
So many of my closest girl friends have moved away to different states and even different countries. On top of that, my bestest friend of all (my sister) moved to Singapore last year. These girls mean the world to me and I miss them sooo much! Do you have friends or family that live far away? How do you cope?

I love when I hold on to something long enough that it becomes trendy again. Animal prints are definitely something that continues to come back in style every few years or so. Stick to classic, flattering pieces and you will wear them for years to come. 
On the flip side, I hate when I hold on to something and it comes back in style but doesn’t look quite the same. For example, I had 2 pairs of Joie cargo pants circa 2002.  I held on to them all these years only to have my bootcut cargo’s look ancient next to their hip, skinny counterparts. I should’ve just donated them all those years ago!

What’s something you held on to that you regret?
