Style Staples

There is no better place to capture the beauty of Chicago than the Skydeck at the Willis Tower.  Stepping onto the glass ledge that extends 4.3 feet from the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere will no doubt provide a rush of adrenaline. Take that rush to the next level by flipping upside down…talk about a  great view!  This was not my first rodeo standing on my head at 1,353 feet in the air, (check out my oldie but goodie post Causing a Scene at the Willis Tower), but it was just as exciting as the first time.  Whether you stand on your head or your feet, every Chicagoan or visitor deserves this experience!

Onto the fashion!  My bomber jacket is by Rebecca Minkoff...such a versatile and chic staple.  RM jackets are excellent quality at very fair prices. If you are looking to spend less, BLANKNYC is a great brand that carries a classic bomber jacket for under $100.  Zara and Topshop are other great sources for stylish inexpensive jackets.

My moto leggings are by  Spanx.  I have been playing for team Spanx leggings for a hot minute.  These babies can be worn year round in so many different ways.  The waistband is comfortable and flattering, with the perfect amount of stretch. Any pair of pants I can practice yoga in, go to a restaurant in, or take a nap in are a friend of mine!

The slouchy boots that raged in the 80’s are back and better than ever.  I was highly interested in a pair, but didn’t want to drop much coin on the trend.  I scored this pair at Forever21 for a serious bargain. Forever offers a variety of styles at unbeatable prices, and the quality is pretty darn impressive.  Zara and Jeffery Campbell also carry great slouchy styles at low prices.  PS: if you have a pair of loose fitting knee high boots, simply scrunch them down as low as you like to create a brand new boot, DIY style.
