LookBook: Shop Stop Chicago

______________________________________________

I finished 2013 off on a very spectacular high note. I spent the weekend in La Crosse, Wisconsin doing the wedding pictures between some close family members of mine, and with that I was on my way back to GR with of course, one obligatory stay in Chicago, my favorite town in the Midwest!

Amounting the lack of heat in the city that day, I stayed relatively warm. I do regret not packing ear muffs though, and I may have had to take refuge in a Starbucks from the shops opened! Regardless, my body stayed relatively warm because one thing they teach you to do from child birth in Michigan is layers.. layers.. layers!

My favorites of this outfit are also a shameless repeat of the season. I have been getting much use out of my combat boots along with my sable-tooth scarf from H&M! We only stayed in Chicago for not even a whole day so shopping was a must, so I made my way in the morning to the shopping mecca of Chicago being Michigan Avenue, it was a shop stop well spent!

It was relaxing to visit the city and not feel like I had to visit everything as fast as I could which made for a casual stop on the way back to the Mitten, a very cold one at that! How is the weather holding up in your neck of the woods? I am one snow day with one on the way for tomorrow! Stay safe out there! xxoo

Lookbook- Rural Visit

May 20th, 2013

______________________________________________

So this past Saturday, I spent the evening at my cousin’s home in Lowell Michigan. This small town has a lovely charm to it. For a town I don’t visit too often outside GR, this was my second visit in a week. My cousin’s home with not much around it, was so peaceful to spend the evening catching up and enjoying the Sun.

I loved how there were barely any cars that passed by, and it was a peaceful short getaway. It also made for some cliche shots in the street. On the second photo if you were wondering, they are some navy converse that I studded customarily with studs I purchased from Amazon!

From top to bottom, I got the shirt recently as a birthday gift, which I believe is from Khol’s. I got the shorts from Hot Topic 2 years ago which I love for Summer, and finally as I mentioned earlier were the studded Converse I had done myself.

LookBook- Telephone

When my grandma was moving homes, there was a lot of sorting, and going through old things. Whilst rummaging through old Polaroids, notebooks etc, I came across this phone. This phone was already familiar to me. I remember my cousins, and I making fake phone calls from the upstairs bedroom due to whatever make-believe game we were playing that day. A little nostalgia behind it, and the fact it was super cool led me to ask my grandma for it, and of course she said go ahead! Makes a great decoration in my office, and maybe for a photo shoot or two 😉

I wore this outfit to a carnival, although I ended up replacing the cardigan with a Chicago White Sox hoodie, it was a bit chilly, but things are beginning to warm up for Michigan. Especially the fact we have had random spurts of snow, this tank-top weather has been perfect!

  1. Stud earrings- Forever 21
  2. Necklace- Some stand in the mall from a long time ago.
  3. Round Sunglasses- Amazon
  4. Cardigan- Chaps
  5. Tank Top- Rue 21

Hope the weather is just as pleasant in your neck of the woods, enjoy your week readers!

Look Book- Purple Sweaters In Chicago

April 7th, 2013


Chicago definitely left me with a plenty of clothes to add to my Spring/Summer wardrobe combined. I envy the people who reside in Chicago that are only streets, if not, only a few miles away from stores we don’t have back in this region. Either way, while I do love picking up a new top from H&M, or a jacket from Forever 21, I think you can do a lot by balancing thrift store clothes as well, which is why I bring you this outfit.

I was pretty fortunate that the weather was not resistant to the outfit I was wearing. Out of the 2 days we were actually downtown, this day was a 50s day which was still pleasant walking around town with just the sweater.

Even later in the day once the temperature began to slowly fall and we walked to Millennium Park, I was still pretty comfortable in this outfit.

I just love this picture I got outside the Burberry store in Chicago, which looks awesome inside and out! This Outfit:

  1. Beanie from H&M
  2. Sweater from GoodWill
  3. Bracelet from Rue 21
  4. Rude skinny jeans from Hot Topic
  5. Classic Vans from Vans

I can definitely say, while I love a good big sweater, I am excited for the upcoming months as the temp is rising and I can actually wear lighter clothing. With that, have a good one readers!
