After my marvelous updates to packing my beauty products, it’s time to regale you with my equally victorious tale of apparel, shoe and accessory packing. (more…)


Pink Lady in Black Coated Jeans

Hey all! Happy Wednesday.

I busted these black coated jeans out with my favorite neutral blazer.

Paired with a black lacy underthing and sheer white sleeveless tee, I’m ready to rock.





These Steve Madden Daisie pumps literally fell into my lap. I was randomly perusing shoes last summer and bam, there they were. I had spent the better part of three years looking for the perfect pair of black suede pumps in my price range. There may have been metaphorical tears of joy as I completed checkout…


And then there were tears the first few times I wore them as I broke them in. Oh, what I go through for cute shoes…

Off the Shoulder Top & Grey Skinny Jeans

I love this top and these jeans so much, I wore this exact outfit two times in three weeks. The first time I wore this outfit was to dinner with my alumnae advisor council. I volunteer as an advisor for the Delta Rho chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi at DePaul University here in Chicago.

This is the street I grew up on in Quincy, Illinois. Something seemed right about shooting my new outfit posts in the place where it all began.
