outfit // savoring summer








I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was filled with lots of rose, over indulgence on the food front (checked off Red Rooster-omg so good- and the sundae at DBGB from my summer bucket list), some SoulCycle and runs (in 85 degrees this was ROUGH), playing tourist on the Circle Line and spending time with my girlfriends. I always love Labor Day weekend since everyone is savoring the last of summer and soaking up every last bit of sunshine and feeling of inhibition.

This Rebecca Taylor dress I bought two summers ago - a score from TJ. Maxx in the suburbs of Chicago for $70 and have worn it so much. And these Joie heels are also great in the red combo - so comfortable and the leather & suede mix let’s them easily transition into fall.

Hope you have a great Tuesday!

Outfit: Rebecca Taylor dress, J.Crew vest, Joie Roxie heels, Michael Kors bag (last seen here) & watch, Karen Walker sunglasses, CC Skye and Capwell & Co bracelets, BaubleBar necklaces

w&w weekly roundup


Happy Labor Day Weekend! I’m staying in the city this weekend but have plenty of programming with my friends including taking a boat around the island, brunching, taking some SoulCycle classes and then I’m spending Saturday with a lot of self-TLC – facial, massage and a hair cut/color appointment. And there will, of course, be a lot of rose involved. How are you spending the holiday weekend? I hope you have a great one and enjoy this week’s short & sweet roundup!

And in case you missed it…

outfit // fancy pants









I for one will be happy to say farewell to summer (it was a great one!) and usher in Fall next week. Quite clearly seen here by embodying pants and a leather jacket. I impulsively purchased these pants while zipping through Zara last weekend and not bothering to try anything on- (Another pair of favorite printed Zara pants here.) Paired them with this Joie tank that I’m so grateful I bought before Paris because I have worn it so.very.much. Tucked into skirts and pants and donned with shorts.

And because I love these pants so much I think I may use it as an excuse to buy these pants I’ve had my eyes on (especially after reading Hallie’s words on them here) because of the similar shape.

Today is my last day in the office before a glorious 4 day weekend. What are your plans? I’ll be sharing mine as part of tomorrow’s round up and in the meantime, have a great day – thank you so much for popping by!

More printed pant love below – many of which I’d pair with this for fall & winter!

Outfit: Joie Alicia tank, Zara pants + shoes (similar) and jacket (old but love this one for under $100), Sophie Hulme Zip Top Bowling bag, BaubleBar necklace, Karen Walker sunglasses
