Transitional Pieces For Spring!

How To Transition Your Wardrobe

from breezy spring nights to hot summer days!  

We all know that Chicago weather is a guessing game and the answer changes from hour-to-hour in this beautiful Windy City!  Spring is the time of year when my e-mails are overflowing with clients looking for items to get them through the transitional months of the season.  Everyone wants to start wearing fun bright colors and can't wait to start rocking the easy breezy dresses that summer begs for, but the weather doesn't always cooperate! 

I've highlighted some of my top transitional wardrobe pieces that every fashionable city girl should own!  The best part about the pieces is that they really do help expand the longevity of your favorite summer duds, and most likely they will become your obsessions as much as they are mine. Let's just say I have a lot of options to choose from when it comes to....

I can't get enough of a great fitted blazer!  It is THE PERFECT way to make almost any dress work-appropriate, and takes any casual top to a much more trendy/sophisticated level!  You can get them in major color statementsfunky materials, and the perfectly flattering length for your height!

A cute pair of super fitted skinny jeans can not only keep your legs warm on a breezy day, but easily add a trendy "cool-girl" vibe to any dress!  They are such a fun way to play with your style!  Wear them under a super girly dress to give yourself some edge!  Play around in the mirror to find the perfect combo for your personality and cuff the bottom to make it clear they're pants and not leggings!

Such an obvious answer to the problem of seasonal temperature changes!  So many people think scarves are just for winter, but luckily the materialslengthsshapes, and uses of scarves continue to evolve!  Find yourself a scarf that you love and experiment with all of the different looks you can create!

Hope this helps you finally bust out your favorite warm weather looks and enjoy this crazy beautiful city and it's crazy beautiful weather no matter what the temperatures bring your way!

Pull Any Look Together In A Snap!

3 Super Simple Styling Tips 
to Pull Any Look Together!!

Hi fashion lovers!  

As a personal stylist one of the things I hear over and over again from my clients is that they want to look modern and put together without any stress!  Any morning can be a hecticblurry haze and figuring out how to tie your look together gets overwhelming and often forgotten about!

That’s why I’m going to share with you three of my SIMPLEST styling tips to instantly take any look from drab to fab in a snap!  I’m keeping it short and simple just like getting dressed in the morning should be!



Cuffing your sleeves OR your skinny jeans is a simple way to tailor your look and give it a "cool girl" vibe!

Play around with a messy front tuck with your blouses.  This gives your shape definition without having to wear super fitted clothing and gives your look more polish!
If your belt loops are going to show, even only when raising your arms put a belt in them! Think of this as another accessory that can tie your entire look together!
