Back to Black





So happy it’s Fri-YAY since my husband and I are going to see Lady Gaga x Tony Bennett tonight (yes, I’m dragging my hubs along!). We are one of the lucky ones that were able to get tickets to Ravinia, so you can probably understand my EXCITEMENT.

Anyhow, this photo-shoot was probably my most favorite ever because I was able to goof around a bit. Believe it or not, I always feel a bit awkward taking pictures of me but my husband is so good when it comes to directions and/or angles. Together we make an awesome, both professional and personal, team. So blessed to have this man by my side. As for my clothes, I’m leaning towards black and minimalism again. Which reminds me a whole lot of my high school and college days back in Europe. I wore almost always black and white. What do you think of this look?! Do tell by commenting below!

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

 Happy Fri-YAY!

It’s time to embrace the wide-leg, cropped pants, y’all! I’m completely smitten by my new culottes (some call them gaucho pants, either work!) because they are the most comfortable pair of pants I’ve ever worn! They hang like a skirt but split like pants – genius, don’t you agree?!

However it’s important to balance proportions while rocking this pant trend. I decided to go with a simple crop top because one thing’s for sure: You don’t want to lose your waistline while prancing around in your super wide leg gauchos.

Looking to dip your toe into the culottes pool (or jump in head-first!)? Check out some of my favorite cropped pants below and start shopping!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous (long) weekend!

Much love!
