Highs and Lows....

Good Monday Morning To You All...

Hope you had a nice enjoyable weekend... and ready to get back to it today :)

I'm wearing a fun sorta tribal print high/low dress from Windsor via Plato's Closet. I love this style of dress because it's still flirty and fun with the shorter hemline in the from but work appropriate with the longer length in the back. Paired it with navy tights and tribal cut out booties from Bakers. The warm weather is still holding out on us here in the windy city, so I'm wearing my Old Navy denim trench to keep warm :).

Have a wonderful day...

Take Two....

Good Morning Lovelies...

Happy Wednesday to ya...

My new fave jacket is making it's second appearance today... I couldn't wait to style it with a different outfit. I found this beautiful green pleated medi skirt at Forever 21, I knew I wanted to wear a white blazer with it, but when I order this jacket I knew it would make for a super cute outfit. Wearing a black lace tank/cami from Banana Republic that I found at a local thrift store, lace tights from Charlotte Russe and black strappy sandals. I think it all came together nicely.

The sun is shining bright and the temps have gone up a bit... looks like a beautiful day ahead.

Thanks Fashion Steele...

Good Tuesday Morning Dolls and Gents ...

Woke up to the cold brisk air today.. had to cut my doggies morning walk short cause I was FREEZING lol.. they weren't to happy about me dragging them away from smelling the grass and whatever dogs do while NOT using the bathroom.. anywho.. they are House Pets.. they will get over it :)

So I am excited about my "new" to me white  faux leather jacket I ordered from the Lovely Monroe Steele of  Fashion Steele NYC,  she is a fellow blogger and also has a pretty awesome Online Store too.. be sure to stop by and check out her blog and her store, I know you will find something you just have to have!! I surely did, if more items were my size I'd probably buy her out!! LOL

This jacket however is the perfect fit for me!! I have so many outfits in mind, to wear it with.. today was just a bit too cold though so I paired it with a white/silver stripe tank, flare denim and white gladiator sandals.  I'm so jealous of those of you who are enjoying record high temps... Chicago sure isn't  :(... Anywhoo... Summer come on girl.. we ready!!

Have a wonderful day :)
