It felt great to finally be back in Chicago for the weekend. Aside from visiting a few restaurants I had scoped out from Yelp (visit "Crisp" for the best wings on earth), I also got to dress for winter one last time. I was comfy all weekend in oversized jumpers and scarves! This Saint Laurent beauty was also a recent purchase as a be-lated birthday gift to myself and need less to say I've been using the crap out of it. Till next time!
Even though Spring is already here, my wardrob has yet to ditch the black and white monochromatic theme. Oh well, might as well ride it out while it lasts! Although its a bit warmer here now, its not a bad idea to keep a light button up or flannel with you at all times as the temperature drops at night. I often use this cute zebra printed button up gifted from my friends over at Persun Mall as a cover-up after dark. Recently, I've also been obsessed with the Baker Watch from Marc by Marc Jacobs. I love how flat the setting is and how minimalistic the design is! Have you guys switched on over to your Spring wardrobe yet?
Here are a few photos that I snapped on my short trip to San Antonio, Texas! The Riverwalk was a relaxing place to be, and its not a trip down south without visiting the best bbq joint in town. We stopped by Rudy's BBQ to get our southern BBQ fix. Their creamed corn was the best thing on the menu! We also went to Seaworld for a day. Anyone from San Antonio or has visited as well?
As I started on the journey towards the next step of my career last week, I had about a week in between jobs to gather my life together. So it only made sense to cross off a few things off of my to-do list. One of which was to visit my old college roommate in San Francisco! I had a few days to spend with her as well as a few hours in the days to wonder about the city myself. Wanderlust tendencies achieved! Hope you guys enjoy these few photos that I snapped on my trip. For more pictures visit my instagram! I also made a trip to San Antonio, Texas this weekend. Stay tuned for my Texas photo diary!
(Rosegal lace Top | Zara Leather Leggings | Born Pretty Bracelet | Forever 21 Cut-Out Booties)
I've always been eyeing the Jeffrey Campbell cut-out booties, so when I found these Forever 21 booties for 1/4 of the price I was ecstatic! Not only are they cute, they're super comfortable and are my current casual "ladies' night" shoes. As for the rest of this look, I decided to pair a feminine peice with a my favorite pleather leggings from Zara. This gifted lace top from my friends over at Rosegal Vintage gives off the perfect flirty vibe. I absolutely love the two-toned detail of the lace floral pattern and solid chiffon combination. However, if you're read my blog you know I'm not all that girly. So I roughened this white lace top up by pairing it with black pleather, black, black and more black. The are also a bunch of other cute vintage styled pieces available at Rosegal Vintage.
And of course, 95% of the time I also tend to pair everything with gold accessories. However, ever since I've gotten this chained bracelet ring from Born Pretty I've been ditching' the gold and sportin' the silver more and more. I've received many compliments from strangers on this delicate piece! Although the site already offers cute jewelry at incredibly affordable prices, Born Pretty has also given my readers a special 10% promo code (use JCT10 at checkout)!
(Tobi Dress | Kimchi Blue Lace Kimono | BCBGeneration Booties | Marc by Marc Jacobs Bag)
Hi Dear Readers! Hope everyone has had a great winter vacation. While mine consisted mostly of foodie adventures with friends and sleeping in, I was finally able to visit the Huntington Library with le boyf right before having to go back to work. Although I've grown up in this city all my life, its crazy how I've never actually visited the Garden/Museum. If anyone is in the LA area you guys should definitely check it out. As for my attire that day, we were lucky enough for it to be 73 degrees and sunny (stay warm my mid-west/east coast friends). Thus, I was able to throw on this simple slip dress from Tobi and my new favorite lace kimono snagged from Urban Outfitters (on sale too!). Happy New Year guys!
