Happy weekend, dolls! I cannot even believe Christmas is less than a week away! Tis the season to be giving, right? I have teamed up with my friends at Boohoo, and selected 5 mystery bloggers to send holiday treats to! I cannot wait for them to receive! I always love receiving packages, no matter what size — so, thought I’d share the joy. I absolutely adore Boohoo (affordable, trendy & chic pieces!) PS: Everything pictured is under $70! I may have to grab this sequin number for NYE! Head on over to the Boohoo for more fab gifts! Are you one of my mystery bloggers? I guess you’ll have to wait and see! XX

Meet my newest obsession: oversized outerwear (Note: Probably not the best obsession to have when you live in a Chicago high-rise with limited closet space. My boyfriend is pumped about it) Now that we got that out of the way — I have never received so many compliments on a jacket before! It’s my go-to for a gloomy, dull, Chicago day. It’s also super warm! I told myself (after many years of experience) that I would only wear long jackets. You see, I walk to work — and this whole ‘windy city’ thing, they ain’t lying! Luckily, Chicago has been mild, so I’ve gotten to play in this longer than expected. What’s your obsessions this season? Share below! XX

Alright, cat lovers — unite! This post is dedicated to my sisters (they both love these furry felines). I am pretty sure Taylor Swift is making them cool again, just saying. All these picks are super cute, but I especially heart #1 — A customized painting with you and your pet! (Bonus: This is my sister’s business, and she’s super talented, and I’m super proud of her — so go support her!)

1. Customized Painting with your pet 2. Gold cat ears (because they’re adorable, and there are no rules in life) 3. Everyday is Caturday makeup bag (Got this for my sister, and she loved it!) 4. Melissa Cat Print Shoes 5. Cat Keychain (Doubles as security, too! Simply put your fingers through the eyes, and you have a sharp object) 6. Cat mug 7. Cat lover charm necklace 8. Royal cat pouch 9.

Once upon a time, Henry & his wife, Belle, started designing in the garment district of Chicago in 1931. Crafted with high quality fabrics/finishes and the perfect fit — these jeans are a closet staple. (I mean, 84 years in the making! They’ve had some practice!) Personally, I love how these jeans form to my body — I’m a girl of natural curves (and booty!) so finding the perfect fit is a feat. I’m wearing the Henry & Belle ‘studded super skinny ankle’ in a size 28. These are fresh in the store (literally arrived a week ago!) and I’m borderline obsessed. I paired with an oversized Zara blanket-scarf to stay extra cozy on a day of errands in the city. Make sure to enter ‘HOLIDAYSONHURON‘ for a 20% discount at check-out! Happy Holidays, ya’ll!

Tonight is the night, Chicago! Catch all the details here but, first — let’s talk about the amazingness that is Shop 857 in Lincoln Park. I cannot get enough. It’s like Kelli (the owner) hand selected each piece for me! I wanted to share a look with you (to get your mind in shop-mode for later) — Being a corporate gal, I especially appreciate the wide selection of dresses that go effortlessly from day to night, and from office to mingling. This also includes the wide array of pants, sweaters, skirts and jumpsuits! Speaking of jumpsuits, I couldn’t pry myself away from this gorgeous Greylin jumpsuit. The lace detail is perfection, and it’s beyond cozy! I think a lot of us have the conception that jumpsuits are for warmer days (different seasons) and I’m here to prove that theory wrong! This Amanda Uprichard sweater is a seasonal favorite — the color pops, and it keeps me toasty and bright. I thought they were the perfect pair together, and it got me in the holiday spirit! Fa la la la la…

So, tonight is your chance to come meet me — Shop, sip & mingle with Chicago’s best at Del Frisco’s from 6-8pm (more details here!) Shop 857 will be there to answer all your style questions, and to get you ready for the holidays in style! Oh, make sure to wear your holiday best! It’s the perfect opportunity to throw on that party dress that you’ve been saving!
