IMG_6212Over the weekend, I decided to spend some time exploring Chicago, the city I so love yet often take for granted.  Saturday was dedicated to on foot exploration of the most populous downtown attractions.  I spent the day walking along the Mag Mile, taking in the beautiful city views I often take for granted.  I hopped in-and-out of the many stores lining the tourist filled Magnificent Mile, made my way through River North, the Loop and finally Grand and Millennium parks as well as the waterfront.  I even made it a point to visit Cloud Gate (aka ‘The Bean’).  It’s been years since I’ve spent so much time in these areas and this weekend reminded me of why I love this city so much.Chicago Waterfront

I fell in love with the windy city just as I did during my first visit when I was nine years old.  I highly recommend taking some time to explore the city in which you live as though you were new to the area.  There will most certainly be more windy city excursions in the future, rediscovering different sights and neighborhoods in the city I so adore.

Thank you so much for reading and happy Monday!


Welcome Autumn!


Welcome AutumnThe fall season has officially begun! As you know, fall/autumn is my favorite season of the year.  I”m ready to welcome the change in weather from hot summer nights to cool and breezy evenings. I look forward to enjoying warm cider and maybe a pumpkin spiced latte or two this season.  Most of all, I’m excited for the oversized sweaters, statement scarves, chic boots and plum lip colors synonymous with fall.

Thank you so much for reading! Happy first day of fall!


Scarves are one of the many reasons I love the fall and winter seasons so much. These oft unappreciated yet necessary accessories play a significant role when it comes to cold weather style.  Not only do they serve a functional purpose, but they can be used to complete an outfit or make a statement. While most grab a scarf as a last-minute addition to add a bit of warmth, I prefer to style my scarves.  One of the most iconic of scarves is the Burberry Classic Cashmere Scarf in Heritage Check.  This is by far one of my most lusted after wish list items.  Not only is it beautifully made, this scarf can be styled in a myriad of ways to complete an outfit or used as a statement piece.

I would love to get this scarf in a number of the 71 color options but at the $475 price tag, this item must stay on my wish list for now.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a happy Monday!
