You can never go wrong with black and white with touches of red. Classic, timeless and striking, this has always been one of my go-to combos. Don’t believe me? See many of these looks, along with the evolution of this blog here.

I’ve been talking about layers a lot lately and although we had summer-like temperatures over the weekend, Chicago springs tend to be a bit moody shall we say. I picked up this black and white tweed blazer during the winter months, but its been a great staple to carry over into spring as well. I love a good 3-season coat!

A classic shift dress also never goes out of style and Asos has such an amazing selection to choose from. I love playing with and mixing different textures. This high-neck option would also be a sure bet.

And nothing adds a dash of glam faster than touches of red. Whether a classic red lip or a great bag (this Forever 21 crossbody is such a great dupe for the Gucci Soho), a pop of red instantly elevates an outfit.

I also wanted to mention these sunglasses. Aren’t they amazing? I have long coveted a pair of Karen Walker sunglasses but always shuddered at the price. I couldn’t justify it when I could get a great pair on Amazon or even at Target for $10-$15. So instead I’ve spent many times that amount on cheap sunglasses over the years, amassing a huge variety, most of which I never wear, constantly replacing sunnies as the trends changed. Enter DITTO Endless Eye Wear.
