It’s no secret Chicago weather is straight up wacky. Currently wacky…and it’s not the first time the city has played these tricks on us. It is what it is…and that is making life for fashion girls very stressful. I adore ruffled mini skirts and sun dresses…but the reality of how often they are wearable is something to consider. And there’s the unfortunate fact that my legs are naturally neon white…no one wants to see that. A piece I adore AND wear on the reg…cool pants. Cool pants effortlessly transition to all seasons. Cool pants do not require tan legs. Also, boys dig cool pants. Boom.
My personal favorite, cool girl pant is a bombshell bell bottom. I can promise y’all I have tried many brands, and have narrowed it down to a couple of favorites. Please learn from my money wasting mistakes:) My Novella Royale flared pants are from Free People. Fits and feels like a buttery soft yoga pant. Crazy versatile; looks killer with everything from a structured blazer, to a cozy tee. I am rocking the janis bells in a size small here. If you are between sizes, I would size up. These sexy suckers are tiny!
I typically roll with a rocker tee and a groovy jacket with my cool pants. But in the spirit of summer approaching, I was inspired to rock all white accents with these babies. A great white button up is an absolute wardrobe must. So versatile. That said, I can be a bit of a brat about throwing down on a “boring button up.” I did some serious searching, and this Anthropologie number is perfection and under 100 bucks. Shades and bag by Chloe, Stuart Weitzman boots.
Last but not least…let’s discuss my gorgeous earrings! When OneWild contacted me, I was instantly interested…their brand reflects a fresh aesthetic, love of nature, and desire to empower women through fashion. They give $1 of every retail purchase to organizations supporting women in need. If there is ever an opportunity to channel my love of fashion towards a good cause, I feel thankful to be on board. Bonus…I am in love with these earrings! My ears are crazy sensitive and anything long sadly does not usually work for me. These babies are so lightweight, you barely know they are on. The shape flatters every face and hairstyle, and the copper rose gold looks amazing dressed up or down.
“Smile! The only fashion that lasts forever.”
