    Sequins in January? Groundbreaking.

    Just because New Years is in the past doesn’t mean festive dressing is over! I’m of the mind that sequins are appropriate all year round – in fact, I wore this jacket to a conference in August. The brighter the better, right? I’m obsessed with this jacket – it was my mom’s from back in the day and I rediscovered it while cleaning out a closet a while back. It’s totally not something I would buy myself, but it’s been so fun to style it now that it’s in my closet. It looks so fun with jeans and simple top (like I wore back in August) or dressed up with a jumpsuit…

    A Festive Vintage Dress for Christmas

    It’s almost Christmas! Can you believe it?! I mentioned on Instagram that I haven’t really been in the holiday spirit lately, but I’m really hoping this weekend will turn it around. I’m heading home to Chicago today and we’re doing all the Christmassy things! We’re decorating my mom’s amazing aluminum Christmas tree, seeing the Nutcracker at the Joffrey Ballet, watching holiday movies, and obviously I’m forcing my family to play my Christmas Prince drinking game.

Thanksgiving, especially, is my favorite holiday for three reasons: No gift giving. I love Christmas, but there is always so much added pressure (emotionally and financially) of buying and receiving gifts. I much prefer all the family time and delicious food without the strain of gifts involved. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I grew up watching the parade and I love that we still do it every year albeit with champagne…

    A Spring Outfit + 10 Summer Resolutions

    Old J. Crew Denim Jacket (similar here) – Vintage Dress from Om Diva in Dublin – Adidas Superstars (on sale here) – Olivia Burton Watch from Bow & Pearl in Dublin – Old Dooney & Bourke wristlet (love this and this wristlet from D&B). Spring is here, guys! FINALLY. It was 85 degrees yesterday and I’m unnaturally psyched. After living in Dublin last summer, I’ve missed those sunny days and hot sticky nights. I know, I’ll be kicking myself for saying that soon enough. I literally forgot bugs existed until like last week… I’ve obviously selectively remembered a lot about Midwestern summers lol. The temperature is starting to go up, but in Wisconsin…
