Puffy coat

Normally I would not have posted pictures where I wear a winter puffy coat, because to me it's just a coat, but with this one I had to, because it's so unique! It was inexpensive and I got so much more than I expected. I love the zippers all over, and the large side zip that goes from underneath the armpit all the way down (the last two photos). I also love the uneven hem (longer back). It has so many dimensions and is visually interesting thanks to the outer layer being almost its own shell buttoned in the front, which I am not sure the pictures really depict that, but trust me when I say that it is the best $40 ever spent! Yes, $40! I got it on and there were so many more coats and jackets I wanted! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving and thanks for visiting.

Shirt dress

It's hard to believe these picture were taken a week ago on Sunday, with almost 70 degree weather, when this weekend we have about 6 inches of snow! Crazy Chicago weather at its best! 
I have always been into loose fitting tops, dresses, tunics, etc., but recently I have also been into long tops; ones that reach to the knee for an effortless and cool look. This shirt dress can be worn with jeans, leggings, or as a dress, but I styled it here with skinny black pants. I love the neutral colors of this shirt. I picked up the dark greens from the shirt and added another dimension to it with this green bib necklace, which I bought a long time ago at Loehmann's (my go-to store, which unfortunately doesn't have any locations in Illinois anymore, sad face). I hope you all have a great Sunday!

Wearing: Forever21 shirt dress; H&M pants, Forever 21 pumps.

I love all black looks! If I could, I would wear black everyday, but even I sometimes crave some color. But today an all black look, that is basic, but interesting all at the same time. If you are looking for some interesting twist to an all black ensemble, try incorporating an interesting texture or detail. Here, the top is made of a quilted, nylon-like fabric (almost like a windbreaker) with a 3/4 sleeve. I love this detail, it is eye-catching and visually really interesting. The rest of the outfit can be really basic, because the top is one that will attract all the attention. Thanks for visiting and have a great Sunday y'all!

Wearing: Asos top (I got it a long time ago, but it is still available here); H&M pants, Forever21 pumps (I linked a similar style).

Leggings and tunic top

Leggings and a tunic top... can't go wrong with this combo! The leggings are super old, but I love the leather patches on them. This tunic top (or dress; whatever you want to call it) from Forever21 was such a steal and because it's a neutral color it will go with so many items in my closet. I have actually worn it to work a couple times, paired with work pants and a blazer. It would look great with a pair of skinny jeans as well and comfortable flats for a weekend look. I love the pockets too obviously; I am a huge fan of any pockets. Hope you have a great Sunday!

Tank top

Summer is officially gone...and even though calendar summer was long gone, we still had nice weather up to about two days (!) ago when we were able to wear light layers (or some people even wore short sleeves). These pictures were taken so recently, but it seems like forever ago, because suddenly it is very cold and windy in Chicago. They don't call Chicago a Windy City for nothing! In my recent posts I have been sharing how I have been layering interesting tank tops or bra tops underneath loose T-shirts. I love loose T-shirts, but usually they reveal too much cleavage and I have never been into showing it. Bra tops that have a high neck or a tank top, like the one in the picture, provide coverage that I want and an interesting detail to a look as well! It's interesting and you can layer it in so many ways. This one is from Free People, and I love its color too. You can also see it in this post.
Wearing: Free People tank top; Gap pants; H&M T-shirt; Qupid peep toe sandals.

Long top

Happy post Halloween! And we are back to a beautiful, sunny, warm weather! By Wednesday it is supposed to be 70! Granted I took these photos back in October, but I could have easily taken them this weekend. So excited for more sunny and warm days before the harsh Chicago winter hits us. Anyway... this long top I got on my favorite website, of course, is very comfy and versatile. I tucked in the front of it, but let loose could be worn as a dress with some boots or booties. I could wear black all day everyday if you ask me, so a score there as well! Hope you all have a great Sunday and are not overeating on all the Halloween candy ;)

Wearing: Daisy Street top from; G-Star cargo pants; Steve Madden peep toes.
