Current Obsessions: J. Crew

In the spirit of full disclosure: the reality is that J. Crew clothing does not look cute on me. But oh, how I wish it did… Look 1: sweater / shorts / necklace / flats Look 2: blouse / denim / bracelet / heels Look 3: hoodie (factory) / sweatpants / bracelet / sunglasses / sneakers Look 4: sweater / shorts / necklace / flats

Cobalt Maxi Dress

I love a good maxi dress during the summer and this cobalt number is no exception. They almost feel like you are wearing pajamas but you can throw on heels and get creative with some high-low styling and take a maxi easily from day to night. And I seriously cannot get enough of this color… P.S. My new DSLR camera is coming on Tuesday!!!!! I can finally put the whole iPhone picture thing to bed!…

In Color

I love a good tee-shirt dress in the summer and I especially love the color combo on this smock dress from Asos. I wear it now with booties or sandals, but it will work into the fall, as well, with leggings and sweaters. The colors work with any shade of denim jacket or chambray shirt. A vest would be super cool too. And I couldn’t resist adding this shot with my 2 favorite little people. So hard…

Printed Shorts: 2 ways

I picked up these shorts at Marshall’s last summer and they have become a staple in my closet. They are so versatile and look great with heels, flats or sandals.

For the past week, we’ve been visiting my parents in the beautiful Black Hills.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit this little-known gem, I would highly recommend it. Shirt: Gap, old (similar) / Skirt: H&M, old, love this / Booties: Old Navy, also love these Thanks for reading! Xo, Heidi

Target Bedroom Redo

As of late, I have been daydreaming about redoing my master bedroom. My amazing husband is currently laying down maple hardwood in all of our bedrooms, which will brighten things up quite a bit. In my web wanderings, I came across a ton of fabulous finds at Target, off all places. And did you know that they offer custom furniture and upholstery??? Yep, Target. And from the reviews, the quality is nothing to sneer at either. Although,…

What I Wore

Summers around Chicago can go from a cool, rainy morning to a hot, sticky afternoon so layers are often a must. I love how this light, airy tank pairs with these fun printed shorts. Throw on a jean jacket, leather sandals, a bracelet and you have a pulled-together summer look perfect for running errands, lunch with friends, or in my case chasing around 2 kiddos! Let’s face it, in the summer comfort is at the…
