Currently Craving: Spring Shoes

CCShoes

To say I have a slight obsession with Spring shoes would be the understatement of the century. Everywhere I look I see a new pair I feel I absolutely need! Subway platforms, work elevators, fellow bloggers – no place is safe from my spring shoe envy!

  1. No longer can you strut around in your basic old navy flip-flops, these simple lace-ups add just enough pizzaz to your sandal game.
  2. Mules have officially made a come back. All my girlfriends have been wearing these when we go out. So clearly I need a pair of my own.
  3. A perfect pair of slip-on sneakers are a necessity when you are on the go. I love the color of these pale pink platforms.
  4. YAS! Finally the athleisure trend is in full force and tennis shoes are acceptable to wear with skinny jeans, a dress, or your favorite pair of leggings. While neutrals are tried and true, I love the pop of color these nikes would add to any outfit.
  5. Another platform makes it onto my list (it’s my wannabe Spaniard spirit). Nothing says spring/summer like a sweet pair of espadrilles.
  6. These bad boys are WAY out of my price range, so I’d love to hear if you guys have found a similar pair.
  7. I have been dying (but admittedly too lazy to find/try on) a pair of lace up flats since fall. I love that these could be worn during any season. Except winter. Winter in Chicago with these shoes and you’d be looking at a serious case of frost bite.

Weekend Recap Vol. 18

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 10.24.38 AM

Happy Cyber Monday guys! I hope you enjoyed a long weekend with the people you love.

* I found out my cat hates other cats. Kayla brought her lil nug home too, and my lil Luna was not about having another 4-legged creature around her.

* The twin + our significant others and I went to the only cool bar in our hometown on Wednesday & saw our entire graduating class

* Turkey day was spent at multiple locations: my house, fiance’s aunts, and fiance’s grandparents

* I headed back home on Friday and spent the day chillin to the max with the twin. We binge watched Jessica Jones all weekend long.

* On Saturday I FOUND MY WEDDING DRESS!!! It was the third one I tried on and I seriously just knew it was the one.

* Saturday night we hosted our annual friendsgiving with our high school posse. Six years strong!

* Now I’m back in the city, and back to reality

Currently Craving: Vests


CCvests

Is it just me, or does it seem like vests are totally having a moment right now? I’ve been eyeing lots of them on my fellow Chicagoans, and I must say I’m green with envy.

1. This brown suede vest is on the top of my  must-have list. I think t would really pull a lot of my outfits together.

2. I tragically lost my beloved denim jacket between moves, talk about heartbroken. I guess this one could cheer me up.

3. Still debating about this faux fur vest trend, do you guys think I could pull it off?

4. This puffy maroon vest looks like it could replace some of my fall jackets.

5. Loving the cut of this cute and casual gray number.

Which vest is your favorite?! 

Currently Craving: Shoes

CCshoes

With fall just around the corner, I’ve been hit with a massive wave of shoe cravings. I kind of have smelly/sweaty feet #TMI, so being able to contain them in boots,slip ons, and tennies really helps haha. There are so many fall trends I am dying to try, as well as some classics I need to replace (cheap riding boots woes).

1. Platform sneakers are HUGE in Europe (where I lived last year). I’m lusting after these chic faux snake leather pair.

2. One of the latest shoe trends I’ve noticed are lace up flats. Talk about adding a dash of glam to a simple shoe.

3. I need to get my hands on a pair of classic, simple booties that I can wear on the daily.

4. Always a sucker for cognac colored riding boots. I should invest in a good pair this year because I always have to replace them.

5. Going with the athletic wear chic, these pair of nikes would pair well with anything.
