Yellow coat

Finally mine! This yellow coat I have been obsessing about for months finally arrived. I debated purchasing it for the longest time, because do I really need another light coat? In Chicago weather where there's no true spring or fall one does not have many occasions to wear light outerwear... But, oh well... This one was one of those items that when you see you gasp and you know you have to have it. So I think I knew I was going to get it, but lingered on making a decision  for the longest time. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Have a great day everyone!

Jean shirt and cargo pants

Hello! Happy Wednesday! Today's post is a repeat of both the pants and the jean shirt (worn with other items in previous posts)... I wear this jean shirt virtually all the time, especially when I am running errands or going to the park with my two little boys. When I need a longer sleeve because of the weather or just need something comfy I immediately grab it from my closet and I am out the door. Also, to be honest, now being a mom of two, I literally have 5 minutes to dress and be out the door, before kids start crying :) It's very difficult to wear something special every day (or not look the same every day) with two kids, unless I plan my outfits ahead of time, which I honestly have not been able to do :) I need to work on mastering that. Hence, today's repeat. Thanks for visiting.

Yellow obsession

Happy Wednesday! Today a yellow sweater, which I absolutely adore! I got it at H&M for roughly $25 (!). What a steal! Later though it was on sale for $7 (just recently, but I am afraid they are all sold out). I love the color, but I do realize my fair complexion may not be a best match for it :) Oh, well. I have been saying on our Instagram page how in love I have been recently with anything yellow, mustard yellow and marigold, and this sweater is a good example of it. Here I paired with a simple white T-shirt underneath to make the color even more crisp. And finally, my white Converse sneakers, which I wear all the time during spring and summer. The weather has finally been allowing to break these out!

Favorite sweater

Hello everyone! Today a feature of my favorite wrap sweater that I bought ages ago online from LaRedoute. It's so simple and there are so many wrap sweaters everywhere, but this one is so special because once you belt it, the uneven hem in the back creates this uneven edge peplum, which I love. I  mentioned this sweater in my previous post and said I would feature it by itself to showcase it, and here it is. It's super thick too, so it keeps me warm in winter underneath a coat or a lighter jacket. Hope you all have a great Sunday and thanks for visiting.

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! Today being April 1st (and April Fools Day no less) we are a little annoyed that it still feels like winter in Chicago. Hence, a call for layers. I do love layering, but I would prefer that we finally get spring and some sunshine... In the meantime, we need either a few layers of thinner clothing or still a puffy jacket, which I refuse to wear anymore (so sick of wearing it for the last few months!). I love the leather jacket I am wearing here, which by itself may not be warm enough, but with a thick sweater underneath it's just perfect. The sweater is an old wrap sweater with a cool cascading, peplum-like detail in the back, which you can't see here, but I will feature it by itself one day so it's showcased. It's pretty much my go to look if I don't feel like spending too much time trying to figure out what to wear. The lime green scarf is one of my favorites and it was only about $20 at Charlotte Russe; unfortunately an old one. Hope you have a wonderful day and the whole week! Thanks for visiting.
