Currently Loving: Combat Boots

Happy Friday! I’m super excited to share this post with you today because combat boots have been one of my absolute favorite trends this season. It’s such a fun trend, because they are so versatile and can be styled in a ton of different ways. 

Last month, Emily and I were shopping in Lincoln Park and we went into Lori’s Shoes. (If you live in Chicago, I highly recommend going into their store on Armitage – they have all the great designers the department stores carry, but they have unique styles!!) I found this pair of maroon combat boots, and I truthfully haven’t been able to take them off. 

So far, I’ve styled the boots with jeans and  a graphic, t-shirt, but I’ve also worn them with long dresses and skirts. In this post, I’ve styled the boots with this long, ruffled dress and fringe jacket – I thought they brought a fun, edgy look to my outfit.

What do you think of this trend? Would love to hear your thoughts! 

XO,
Devin 

 

Sweater Weather

Hey guys! Hope you’re having a great week:)

The temps have really dropped here in Chicago, making it officially sweater season! I’ve been on the hunt for some fun sweaters. With the upcoming move and the holidays quickly approaching, I’ve been trying to spend less (especially on clothes). I rounded up a few sweaters that I’m currently loving, for under $100! Items linked below:)

PINSpiration: Studio Decor

Hi friends, happy Wednesday!  I’m really excited today because in exactly 1 week, I’ll be moving apartments! It’s not a huge move but, I’m looking forward to some change. I’ve been living in a small studio in the Gold Coast for the past two years. Now, I’m headed to Old Town, still in a studio, but it’s totally different– more spacious, and updated! The best part is that I’ll be super close to Em and Kurt- they can’t seem to escape me (LOL)!

Anyway, this upcoming move has really brought out my creative side. Going into this new place, I decided that I want it to be super glam, feminine  and somewhat, over the top! I think this will be my last apartment in the city where I can truly have fun with a space thats totally mine!!  To get ideas, I’ve been browsing Pinterest and wanted to share a few of my favorites with you!

Looking forward to sharing pictures of my new place soon! xx

Polka-Dot Dress

Hey guys, happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great week!

A few weeks ago, I was in Highland Park and I stumbled across Rock N Rags, which is seriously the coolest boutique, EVER!  I ended up purchasing this dress, a fun jumpsuit and the jeans I posted on Monday. Nothing in the store is over $100, how cool is that?

Lately, I’ve been loving wrap dresses because they are so easy to throw on! I paired this polka-dot wrap dress with one of my favorite fall hats (I found this one at Forever 21 last year and wear it all the time!!)

Hi loves! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start. 

After a busy weekend, I’m looking forward to having a productive week. Monday’s are always a good day to reset and refocus.. don’t you think?!

I’ve been really excited to share this look with you guys because these jeans are everything. Seriously, EVERYTHING!  I found them at the cutest boutique in Highland Park (more to come in Friday’s post), but they are legit the comfiest pair I own. Em and I always have a hard time finding denim that we love, but I found this pair for under $100. Emily went out and bought the same pair.. 

I paired the jeans with this fun, bell-sleeved top from Target. This Fall, it’s all about the unique detailing – with embroidery, lace, or ruffles. This top comes in black and grey, and I loved it so much, I bought both colors. I know I’ll get SO much use out of them all fall and winter.

Thanks for reading! Hope you all have a great week!

Happy October, loves! 

2017 is flying by! A part of me wishes it would slow down a bit.. but, we’re excited that Fall is officially here!

This past weekend, the weather was BEAUTIFUL here in Chicago so I was so excited to throw on this suede moto-jacket. I bought this jacket last fall in the army green color and wore it a TON – so I thought it’d be fun to incorporate a new color this season. This jacket was originally backordered until November, but they just restocked all sizes here. Although it’s probably not practical to own both the green and brown, I love the way the camel looks with an all black look, or thrown over a printed dress. 






This weekend, I paired it with these shorts, this flutter-sleeve top, and heels (similar).

Hope you all love this look! 
XO,
Emily

Shopbop’s Biggest Fall Sale: Our Picks

Shopbop’s biggest sale of the season is here! There are TWO more days to shop it! This is one of our favorite sales, because a lot of designers that normally don’t discount are included! (PLUS, the more you spend, the more you save – which makes shopping the sale that much easier to justify..) Now that the weather here has turned and it’s starting to cool down, we’re stocking up on some fall staples.

Below are some of our favorite picks: 

Easy Breezy!

In case you haven’t noticed, we have been having a MAJOR crush on dresses this summer. Both of our “9-5’s” have a very casual dress code, so our “play” clothes oftentimes double as our work-wear. Because of that, it sometimes is too easy to justify shopping..

Dresses and rompers are just so easy to throw on, while at the same time, make you look put together! All you need is a pair of sunnies and cute flats, or wedges. We love transitioning them from Summer into Fall by throwing on a suede or leather motorcycle jacket and booties. 

Although we wish we had unlimited funds for shopping (a girl can dream, right??), we love finding great pieces at a great price. One of our favorite online shops, TOBI, offers cute, on-trend pieces for an affordable price. Their prices are very affordable as-is, but they also run great promos. (P.S. They’re running a 50% off promo now for dresses. Enter code: CH50). 




Here are the links to the looks we’re wearing:

Emily (red look)
Tote | Wedges | Dress | Sunnies 

Devin (purple look)
Moto Jacket | Dress | Sunnies | Bag 

Then, here’s Emily’s printed floral dress, and here’s the link to Devin’s olive green dress (comes in 3 colors!) 

Here are a few other items we have our eye on right now:

  1. This olive slit dress would be fun with a pair of sneakers
  2. Emily has this jacket in green; we want the black and cognac color!
  3. This pretty mauve dress would be perfect for a fall wedding

Thanks for reading, xo!

Lace midi dress

This weekend was just what I needed! I took advantage of the amazing weather and spent a lot of time outdoors. When the weather gets nice, I love to run outside– living in the Gold Coast allows me to get the beach quickly and nothing’s better than a run on the beach. I was also about to catch up on some sleep.. not having to set an alarm in the morning is truly the best. I recently bought this blue dress and I can’t wait to wear it all spring and summer!

Lace-Up Sweater Trend

As always, the Chicago weather has surprised us again! Yesterday, the weather was unreal – 70 degrees in the middle of November. So amazing!! When the weather is this nice (which is rare), one of my favorite looks to wear in the fall is a casual dress and OTK boots.

I recently ordered this sweater dress in army green and absolutely love it. I’ve already worn it a couple of times; this look, and once as a sweater with jeans. Based on height, it may not work as a dress, but it’s super cozy and looks adorable either way. I’ve had my eye on a few other sweater dresses, like this turtleneck, and this off the shoulder style

 This week has been a lonngggg one for me. With a work happy hour on Monday and an event on Wednesday, I am exhausted. I can’t wait to catch up on some much needed rest this weekend.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Stay warm, XO!
