Just because I love a trend today doesn't mean that I'll love it tomorrow. I admit that my style can be a bit fickle, which tends to burn a whole in my pocket and leave me with an overstuffed jewelry case full of unloved accessories. Given that dilemma, I jumped at the chance to try out a Rocksbox membership. Rocksbox is a website that allows you to sign up for a monthly membership to borrow designer jewelry.

Winter Investments

Celine + Shearling Coat

Celine + Shearling Coat by fashionlingual

If I could go out this instant and splurge on anything, I'd invest well in some timeless winter pieces. My two picks would be a warm shearling coat to survive sub-zero Chicago temps and some killer booties. Both luxe items can easily be dressed up or down and ooze style.

Cory Vines

To help me keep up with my New Years resolution of getting fit in 2015, Cory Vines sent along some workout gear.

I absolutely love pieces in their Neighborhood line - they're comfy and oh-so-stylish. The Neighborhood Breeze top is an ultra soft and absorbent fabric with a fun back. The Neighborhood joggers are great for running and just as great for lounging around the house on a lazy evening.

Since the joggers were so comfy, I decided to pair them with a printed wrap blouse, a boyfriend blazer and some chunky mules to wear out and about town. Check out the look below!

New Years Resolutions

Every year marks a new set of challenges and enriching experiences. Today I’m musing over a year full of events while thoughtfully sipping from a flute of bubbly champagne (with a squirt of OJ). As I reflect, I’m reminded of my personal strengths and opportunities for growth. 

Here’s what I’m resolving to do more of this year:

1. Consistently exercise 3-5 days a week (my faves are running, spinning and Bikram yoga, my least fave is upper body strength training).

2. Learn one new recipe a month.

3. Travel more.

4. Call/write my friends & family more.

5. Post more often.

6. Take the advice presented in The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book) by Don Miguel Ruiz.

To all those who follow or read the blog, thank you so VERY much. 
Happy New Year!

Midi Christmas

Christmas shopping had me on a tight budget this year for my own holiday looks, so I checked out my local Goodwill. While there, I found this dashing pleated wool midi skirt for $3.99! The rest of the look came together after a quick trip to Forever 21 and some last minute closet searching.

Peppermint Stick Mani

While prepping for a holiday party, I wanted to freshen up my mani and add some holiday accents. Short on time, I kept my nail art simple.

Modani Mood Board

Mood Board

My surroundings have a great impact on my mood, creativity and levels of energy. I crave light and a feeling of openness, which is why I usually opt for white furnishings. To add a punch of color and a bit of myself (which is one part girly, one part modern and all parts style), I like to add in eclectic accessories that reflect who I am.
