Denim shirt

My go to shirt, when I need to wear a light layer, is this Asos denim shirt I got a while back. I fell in love with the distressed effect on it. In person it is even better; it is so well made, I love the thick stitching and after having been washed so many times it maintains its quality very well. Seriously, I probably wear it too often, I'll admit. I love a laid back style (which I have said time and time again) and what you see here truly is what I love wearing the most. A cool pair of sneakers, skinny jeans that fit like a glove and layers at the top. And of course, the devil is in the details, enter the cool design of these Diesel sneakers and a great pop of color via my cross body bag. Hope you like this post and thank you for visiting!

Red pumps & a bow tie

I love taking a simple look and elevating it into a more sophisticated one. There is nothing more crisp and simple than a white button down shirt, but I added the black bow tie and I think it looks so much more interesting. I love the sharp contrast between black and white, and with the red in the shoe and the background, the whole look becomes a bold one despite the fact that the pieces I am wearing are basics that everyone has in their closets. That's the thing about basics - they can be worn in so many different ways if we just change up the accessories. Hope you like this look as much as I do and thank you for visiting.

Wearing: Aldo pumps (Aldo is currently having a buy one pair & get another pair 40% off sale on all footwear!); Free People shirt (old, similar here and here); Asos black bow tie; G-Star jeans (similar here); Asos sunglasses (old, similar here).

Orange, floral & embroidered

How amazing is this embroidered bomber jacket? AND it's orange AND floral! Doesn't get much better than that. Definitely a statement piece that demands attention. I plan on wearing it all throughout the summer as it's super lightweight. I love that the orange is not very bright, but rather subdued, almost a burnt orange color. I kept the rest of my look minimal and I hope you like it. I usually write longer posts but I am at a loss for words at the moment haha, so I will just leave you with today's photos and as always, thank you so much for visiting!

Wearing: Anthropologie bomber jacket (similar here and similar Anthropologie here); Mango jeans (old, similar here and here); H&M tee; Trouve sandals (similar here and I love these).

Double ruffle slides

Hope all you mommas out there had a great Mother's Day today! I definitely felt loved and my two little guys didn't disappoint but after an eventful day I am exhausted! 
Today I wanted to share this simple look (nothing simpler than a pair of jeans and a tee, right?) but elevated thanks to these two-tone suede ruffle slides by Urban Outfitters. They are so adorable I can't stand it! They also come in a black-blue version, but I fell in love with this color combo of an adorable blush pink & burgundy. They are still in stock and linked below. One great statement piece like that and the most basic outfit is transformed into a memorable one.
Hope you like it and thank you so much for visiting!

Wearing: Urban Outfitters suede ruffle slides (plus, similar here); H&M white tee; Mango jeans (similar Mango here); H&M scarf (old, similar here and here); Zara bag (similar here).

Pocket detail

First post after I changed the name of my blog to 'some pop of color'... Well, those that have been following me thus far might have noticed that I love a pop of color (any color, but especially red). I enjoy a vibrant color on a shoe, a bag or a scarf, but I do also love wearing color as a full look. As much as I love an all black look, I gravitate towards colors just as much. So after thinking about re-focusing my blog for awhile, I finally did it. I changed my blog's name and I couldn't be happier with my decision. It truly represents me, because I can't see myself escaping color anytime soon haha!

Today, a post that is all about this Zara white button down shirt with a colorful (surprise, surprise!) pocket print. I love this quirky detail, slightly off to the side. It brings so much edge to a classic white shirt. Hope you like my blog's new name and thanks so much for visiting!

Wearing: Zara shirt; G-Star jeans (similar G-Star here and more affordable here); Zara pumps (similar here).

Summer wishlist with Shein

Hello and hope you had a good start to the week! Today I wanted to share my summer wishlist with you. Summer will be upon us before we know it, especially in Chicago where we always seem to jump from winter to summer almost immediately with no true spring in between. But, summer or not, the items I've rounded up here can be added to your closet anytime and worn however you see fit...

Clockwise: 1. Off the shoulder ruffled red blouse. How amazing are those ruffles and the tie around the neck?
2. V-cut shoulder tie pink blouse. Love this pale blush pink color and the cut in the front. Also comes in pale blue
3. Striped eyelet embroidered ruffle blouse. I mean, no words for this blouse; so beautiful!
4. Leaf print bag. Yes, it's a Chloe Drew dupe, but I love it more for the leaf print than the resemblance to a designer bag!

Cargo pants

I love wearing cargo pants. They are the most casual version of any everyday pant, but can be so chic all at the same time. The baggier, the better (man repeller!), but the ones you see here are a little more fitted. Especially from the knee down; to a button closure by the ankle. I love that detail! They are baggy in my butt, but get slimmer and slimmer towards the ankles. OK, I may seem like a crazy person praising cargo pants, but I have said time and time again that casual style is my favorite and cargo pants are just that. Pair them with a moto leather jacket and in my book there is no better casual look!

Wearing: G Star cargo pants (similar here and here, G Star in peach here); Target purple tee; Adidas Gazelle sneakers (similar here and here); DKNY moto jacket (similar here and here).

Cape coat

I love this Asos cape coat; it holds a special place in my heart and my closet. Fun fact that I wrote about it here almost exactly a year ago... Anyways, it's a perfect not-too-thick layer for warmer spring or fall days. But more importantly, it's a freaking cape so how awesome is that?! That detail alone makes it a special piece for me and it's that wow factor that I often look for in clothes. Pair it with something very simple and let this coat shine!

Wearing: Asos cape coat (love this here and here); Asos tunic (similar here and here); Monki jeans (similar Monki here); Nine West pumps (similar here and here).

One last faux fur jacket look, hopefully!

Alright, it may be May 1st today, but it's still kind of cold out here with the weather being all over the place, that we wear summer and winter clothes all in one week! Granted we took these photos some time ago with snow still on the ground, but I could have worn the exact same clothes today and not feel overheated, because it's so cold out! Anyways, for those of you that are still in cold weather mode, I hope you find some inspiration in this outfit. Have a great week and thank you all for visiting!

Wearing: Forever21 faux fur jacket (similar here and here); J.Crew sweater (similar here and here); Monki jeans (similar Monki here); Free People ankle boots (similar here and here).
