{What I Wore} Annalise Keating Inspired - The Fab 40's Challenge

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. 

Hey Delights!

Today I am off to NYC for the Fohr U: The Conference, so you can follow along on my instagram, snapchat and twitter to see what I get in.

But although I am scrambling & doing my last minute packing thing, I wanted to get this post up sharing my look as the guest blogger in the Fab 40's style challenge hosted by Veronica of Cid Style File. Basically they choose a monthly theme and style it out and this month's theme is "Villain". I can not tell you how hard of a time I had coming up with someone but I ended up going with How to Get Away with Murder's Annalise Keating. Mind you, I don't watch the show but because of my twitter time line, I feel like I do and I know Annalise be on some major villain type mess.

Anyway, here is my interpretation of Annalise Keating's style, which while conservative, always has a little sexiness to it. So I went with this fitted jacket and knotted skirt.

Dress: Eloquii (similar) | Blazer: Lane Bryant | Strappy Pumps: Last seen here | Similar Sunnies

Everything that I am wearing I have had forever and I am side eyeing myself for not having rocked this dress sooner. It has literally been in my closet for like a year and it is pretty awesome.

Thanks for inviting me Veronica!

{What I Wore} Short Shorts + Pom Poms + Thick Thighs

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. 

Hello Delights!

This past weekend was as I mentioned in my Pretty Pastels post, AMAZING! We didn't have a bad winter but I am just so excited for Spring and sunshine. I think that's what I've been missing more than anything...sunshine.

But Saturday after spending all morning recording my Spring haul video (which I am still editing), we went out and grabbed a couple Divvy bikes and hit the pavement.  I love biking & it was so fun, so relaxing and just a really great day.

This outfit is basically an exact replica sans the pom pom slips ons, which are new and fab, of a look that I have worn many times (exhibit A).
Shorts:(old, similar here) | Top: Forever 21 (old, similar in a tee shirt style) | Pom Pom Faux Leather Slip Ons (comes in 3 colors) | Camera Bag: BP @ Nordstrom (sold out similar) | Visor Head Wrap: Scunci (similar) | Lip: Milani



I am definitely getting more of these visors, they are the most comfortable visors I have ever worn. They travel well because they are soft and fold up easily & I just throw it in my purse & go.

{Luxaholic} Simple Luxe Update: 5 Minute DIY Vase #DecorateMyFlat

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. 

Hey Delights!

I love having fresh flowers in my home and I also love changing out my decor very often, so I am always looking for easy, simple ways to do so.  I recently purchased some hydrangeas and wanted to display them in a low profile vase but only had one on hand that I covered in black faux leather forever ago. So because I am currently and have been obsessed with white and gold for a few years now, I decided to recover the vase in those colors.

Awhile back I purchased these Gold Foil Sheets (I like these also) because I knew that I would get a lot of use out of them and this was one of them. And because there are several patterns, I can switch it out whenever I want but for now, I am loving this one and just replaced the hydrangeas with baby roses.
Check out this quick and easy DIY!

{What I Wore} Pretty Pastels

Hey Delights!

It was such an amazing weekend in Chicago and for Easter I decided to go pretty in pink & pastels. This open shoulder dress pretty much represents the type of fashion I want to live in all Spring and Summer. It's throw on and go, pretty, simple & comfortable. 
I love it!



This amazing City Chic jacket is from my Gwynnie Bee closet. It will be featured along with this dress & lots of other pieces in my Spring haul video. And if you haven't tried Gwynnie Bee yet, STOP PLAYING! It's a no brainer. They have all the latest, cutest fashion and a free 30 day trial.

{Fashion} New In My Arsenal!

Happy weekend Delights!

This morning I got up early and recorded a haul video of some of the new pieces that I have gotten for my Spring and Summer fashion arsenal. But while I'm still in the editing phase I wanted to share the pieces with you because some of them may very well sell out before the video posts (they are just that fab!)








Stay tuned for the final cut of the video & in the meantime, check out my other videos on my youtube channel.

{What I Wore} Bell Sleeves & Ripped Jeans

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. 

Spring has finally arrived in Chicago and I was able to finally pull out that super cute stripped bell sleeved tee I purchased in January and it was definitely a hit on the streets.

I have worn these ripped jeans so much that I have had to cut some of the rips off.  So I am about to add a couple more pairs to my arsenal because I love the style, although you will not see me in the ones where the entire knee or whole thigh is out. For me that's overkill. And if you like the style but really don't want to show any flesh this patched pair or lace knee pair might be more your speed.
