Tribal Print Take Over!

Keepin' it classy!

I'm not gonna lie, when I first saw the tribal print trends all over the runway I was a little hesitant...ok, SUPER hesitant! The uber crazy mash up of prints and colors made it hard for me to picture out in the "real world". Lucky for me some fierce chicks out and about in Chicago have made me reconsider my opinion and I'm slowly falling in love with the tribal print take over!

The best thing about the trend is you can make it as big or small of a

 statement in your outfit as you want! I spied a super stylish waitress at Pick Me Up Cafe rocking a tribal print mini with cute pockets, and keeping it simple with black tights and super basic black baby T. LOVE!

On Michigan Ave I spotted a fierce woman strutting her stuff in a silk tribal print top tucked into high waisted brown wide leg trousers. SO classy!

I am personally loving a boxy, light weight black and white tribal print top. Perfect to pair with your

Mystic Blue: Yachting In Style!

If you haven't taken a cruise on one of Chicago's amazing yachts off  Navy Pier, you are missing out!  My friend and I decided to enjoy the beautiful city sky line, some delicious beverages, and mingle with Chicago's elite this last Thursday night!  It was a great night, not only chatting it up with some super fun people, but also for style watching!

Grab your tickets today, and read on for the perfect outfit to Yacht In Style!  :)....


Billowy fabrics, Diva draping, and color blocking in pink will make you fit right in while sipping martinis and magically balancing on your stilettos through the waves!  :)   I'm in love with this super flattering funky colored short draped dress on the left!   Beautiful and fun all in one!  For a relaxed and chic look get inspired by Valentino with this super fun maxi.  The Alice + Olivia dress on the right is the perfect mix of elegant and sexy in pastel pink!

So grab your girls, practice your balance, and hop on a yacht to create your own Style In The City!

 Who doesn't love a great bonfire?  Complete with s'mores, log benches, the sound of waves in the background of good friends singing around the light of a crackling fire.  Let your bonfire style inspire you this August!  It's all about the comfy cozy vibe of slouchy off the shoulder Ts, chunky knits, and hoodies with lace details to give a hint of femininity!

These bonfire must-haves are a perfect way to transition your summer wardrobe into fall!  Throw on a second layer over your favorite summer dress to make it work into the fall!  Here are a few of my favorite layering pieces out this season!

Urban's lace sweatshirt!
This chunkerific cardi looks great over a grey maxi Tshirt dress 

I'm loving Monoreno's lace detailed hoodies as well as Urban's sweatshirts


Michael Stars is coming out with some super slouchy new designs that are perfect for that chillaxin' vibe. 

                   Start a fire this August with your own Style In The City!

Back Cut Out Rage!

Ashley's top
What better way to cool off in the summer heat than with a fun surprise back cut out!  There are so many great dresses and tops literally floating around this season and I'm DYING for them!

I'm freaking out watching the finale of the Bachlorette right now...(Ashley's sister is being super evil) BUT, I can't stop thinking about her blue silk backless tank she wore on her date in Thailand!  The flowy material and vibrant color looked so cool and relaxed in such a comfortable way!  <3

                                                                                                          I'm also obsessed with dresses that have funky cut outs!  I'm super happy that designers have been smart enough to make them bra appropriate!  Urban Outfitters has some FIERCE dresses that can be rocked day or night!
Edgy print!

Such a cute day dress!

Find your favorite cut out and rock your own Style In The City!
