Jackets are a must for spring! It is so easy to get ahead of ourselves and want to ditch our jackets altogether after the weather hits almost 80 degrees once or twice and pull out our summer apparel. Don’t ditch your spring clothes yet! A jacket can add so much personality to an outfit! On cooler spring days like today, I tend to opt for a stylish jacket that I love and piece together the rest of my outfit together around it.  This bomber jacket is wonderful because it can be worn in spring with white denim, or during fall with darker jeans and boots! The floral embellishments and mirrored beading on this jacket make it stand out, especially when the sun reflects off of it. These mirrored sunglasses bring out the jacket’s refelectiveness while making a statement all on their own! They also come in handy when you need a mirror to get your lipstick! 😀 Happy sunny Sunday!

Spring has definitely sprung! In Chicago, it has been raining for the past few days, which can only mean one thing….Hunter boots! I love these rain boots because they are practical AND stylish at the same time. Anyone who knows me very well knows that I will always put practicality after style. 😆 These black boots are great because they match with everything! There is such a wide selection of colors available too. I am considering purchasing a pair of the pink ones to brighten up a rainy day! 😊 This entire outfit is very comfortable and versatile! It makes me feel like I am at a picnic. I might just plan a picnic so that I can wear this outfit! I’ll let you in on a little secret, sometimes, I plan events so that I can wear certain outfits or items! 🙂 Happy (almost) weekend!

I absolutely love statement coats, like the one featured in this post! I like to keep the drama in my life in my wardrobe.  😉  There is something so beautiful about bold, classic stripes. I feel very sophisticated and classy in gloves. These vintage gloves are from a family friend and they were the perfect touch to complete this look. The shorter sleeves of the coat perfectly accentuate the gloves. The gold knot earrings add a nautical element to this outfit which I love for spring! The Tory Burch shoes and tote are staples in my wardrobe. My tote is big enough to hold all of my makeup, accessories, and toys and pacifiers for Killian and Nora. It serves as both a gorgeous purse and glorified diaper bag! 🙂  My sunglasses are the first designer item I purchased when I studied abroad in Italy! They will always remind me of my time spent there. These pieces are all great because they are so classic and chic without being the least bit “basic”.

Happy Mother’s Day! Today was a beautiful, sunny day! As a mom, there is no greater gift than seeing pure joy in your children. Today was one of those days I will remember and cherish years from now. We played outside all day and my little ones, Killian and Nora were thrilled. Hearing Killian and Nora laugh and seeing them smile made this day extra special.  The best way for me to spend Mother’s Day is to make precious memories with my children. Being a mom is the best!

This project has been in the works for quite some time now, and the amount of support I have received throughout the entire process has been incredible.
