IN WITH THE OLD

I bought this skirt when I was a college freshman while searching every store in the mall for something that would turn heads at a party I was attending later that evening. 

I'm not sure how, but throughout the years, this skirt has made it through every wardrobe overhaul and thrift store pile I've every created. 

While changing in between photo shoots, I saw a glimmer from the skirt, which was stuffed in the corner of my closet. I put the skirt on and coordinated an outfit around the unappreciated garment. 

Is the skirt trendy? No. Were people turning their heads as I posed in Grant Park? Yes. 
Who am I kidding, I've never been the one to turn down clothes that aren't trendy. Pieces like this skirt make an outfit special, even if it isn't your season's best.

SHE BELONGS TO THE CITY

Days off are for trekking out to the edge of the city and having fun with photo shoots. At least that is what it looks like for my best friend, Miss Melony Melrose and I.

Our weekdays are so hectic at the newspaper and after an 18-hour production day on Friday we are ready to run wild through the city by the time Saturday rolls around—that is if we make it out of bed before 5:00 PM. 

While there is no other feeling in the world than looking up and seeing nothing but skyscrapers—especially when you come from FarmVille, USA—sometimes it's nice to look at the city from a different perspective. 

But less about my obsession with the city's skyline and more about my outfit! 

Since temperatures have left Chicago a little chilly and brisk, I have no other feeling than pure excitement as I pull out the "fall clothes" bin from my closet. Sweaters, scarves, and knee-high socks, OH MY! Fall is my favorite season of all time and although the sweaters with cut-out sleeves (similar to the one I'm wearing) were hot last fall, it looks like they are making a comeback this season. 

'Tis the season for pumpkin spice and everything nice!

My photographer and I decided to sneak out just as the sun was setting to capture these photos. I love the way they turned out! This outfit has become one of my summer staples. It's a simple and soft look, but the ripped shorts add a little attitude! I usually wear a lot of black, but I have been trying to change it up with pastels and beige tones, and I'm rather happy with this fashion transition.
