Shooting in this red lace dress was quite magical. We took these pictures at North Point Marina which is one my favorite places. I love the idea of coming here, and relax from the hustle and bustle of the city, or even just from your day to day life. And this lace dress couldn’t have been more perfect for this occasion. It’s whimsical and beautiful – just like the marina itself. It’s glamorous, and only shows the perfect amount of skin with those skinny shoulder straps. I also love its jour-échelle panels that define your waist so nicely.

Random side note: Lately, I’ve been struggling with the “bloggers block“. I’ve been uninspired, and I didn’t feel like taking pictures at all. It is extremely frustrating. Have you ever experienced it? If so, what helps you to get out of it? I would love to hear from you!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous Monday!

Much love.

High-Slit Blouse Tunic






Have you been craving the high-slit tunic trend? I certainly have! I finally got mine from Nordstrom over the weekend! I’ve always been a fan of chiffon, and this plaid chiffon tunic is just to die for! Simply put: It’s easy breezy…beautiful!

On a different note, I currently have my best friend visiting me from Germany – hence I’ll be playing tourist in my own city for the next couple weeks! Make sure to follow our adventures on Instagram!

Sending you all much love & thank you for stopping by!

A few weeks ago I had the honor to work with Emily Charron & Blair Staky, the team behind Chicago’s lifestyle website Wandeleur to work on an exciting project titled “When Interior Design Meets Fashion“.

When talented luxury designer Donna Hall, and the team at Wandeleur asked me and three other Chicago bloggers if we wanted to take part in this exciting project I immediately said “Yes”.


Because, besides fashion, I also have a love affair with interior design, I really do. When my husband and I purchased our first home together we took such pride in it to make it our own. We completely gutted our house ourselves, we put in new floors, painted the walls, and I even learned how to put in a back splash to our kitchen and bathrooms walls. Yes, if I wasn’t a fashion/jewelry designer I would most definitely be a interior designer. But enough about that.

It was truly exciting to explore Donna Hall’s newly-refreshed home. From Donna herself, “The overall approach was to honor the architecture of the early 1900’s but modernize it by adding elements of French Moderne period, hints of Miami Deco, and glimpses of the Hollywood Regency era.

Get all the scoop, and tap into the insight of Donna Hall’s apartment HERE and be mesmerized.

As always, thanks much for reading & a BIG THANK YOU to the amazing team at Wandeleur and to Donna Hall who was kind enough to share her living space with us for a day.

Much love.

Little White Dress






It’s no secret here that I love a good LWD, and this one is just to die for! It’s definitely going to be my go-to summer dress! The detailing is just beautiful and I love that it has slip sleeves. Also, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with chiffon either. It’s a summer must!

As always, thanks much for stopping by & have a great weekend!

Much love.

“Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!”

– Sitting Bull

I adore the chevron pattern, I really do. Over the last few years I’ve collected a fair share of them, from throw pillows to baskets/hampers. You name it and I’ll have it.

Now you can imagine how excited I got when I actually got to wear this print! The skirt and top (matching set) are from OASAP – and I must admit: I am completely smitten!

What do you think of this trend?! As always, I would LOVE to hear from you!

Much love.
