MAXI MEETS MINI

Chicago sees temperatures above 60 and what do I do? Dress for summer. Watching the Coachella Snapchat stories gave me some ideas on how I could play with festival trends by pulling pieces directly from my wardrobe. 

This sheer black shawl is actually a button up dress that I wanted to wear in a different way for this outfit. I love playing with contrasting lengths, and maxi skirts and dresses. However, at 5'2, I have to be careful with how I pair long dresses or skirts with other pieces so my outfit doesn't take away from my height. I paired this mini skirt with the dress to show off my legs. 

If your not a fan of this look, check out my "day-to-day," which incorporates this black button up dress

FABFITFUN SPRING BOX REVIEW

FabFitFun, monthly subcription box, kitchen herb garden DIY kit, keratin gloves and socks, yoga mat straps, resistance bands, better shaving cream alternative, hello legs, bath bombs, birch box, trunk club, argan and hemp poil hair treatment, natalie craig, natalie in the city, fashion blogger

When I see everyone get their monthly TrunkClub package or BirchBox, I always find myself wanting one. But until now, I could never find a subscription box that was right for me.

FabFitFun's quarterly subscription is just what I needed, though. The box is not themed or limited around one specific thing like clothes, makeup, or food. And while getting a box every month is cool, I think I would end up with too much of the same kinds of things and not enough ways to use them, which is why a diverse, quarterly box works better for me. 

The FabFitFun spring box includes beauty essentials like an ISH contour kit, jus D' Amour bath bombs, Marrakesh Argan and Hemp oil therapy, and Bodipure keratin gloves and socks. Mix that with a DIY kitchen herb garden kit, beautiful jewelry, and yoga mat straps that also double as resistance bands to feed my recent hobby: hitting the gym.

So if you are like me and you love a little bit of everything, try FabFitFun with $10 off your first box! Use the code "NATCITY" at checkout and tell me what you think. I have already got my subscription on lock, and can't wait to be sharing more of these cool boxes with you all! I will also be taking over the FabFitFun Snapchat account soon! I will be posting updates on my Snapchat (nataliesofly) when I have the official take over date.

You can also check for updates on my kitchen herb garden on my Instagram, because I am sure I am going to be a proud plant mom in no time. LOL.

THE CUT-OUT SWEATER

I love when I can recycle old clothes into new, refreshed looks. This sweater with cut-out shoulders, has been featured on Natalie in the City before, and I thought for sure that the cut out shoulders would be a trend that came and went. However, there are more high-end sweaters with cut outs now than ever. But I am happy to say I got this sweater at H&M for no more than $30!
