Spring / Summer jackets

Nothing is as unpredictable as the weather this year. From 80 degrees F it went into 40 degrees F. On such confused forecast days, a spring / summer (it is almost memorial day weekend – that is legally supposed to be summer) jacket is a must. I like jackets that are light weight and those that can keep you comfortable in 45 – 65 degrees F weather. These jackets are perfect for seasonal transitions throughout the year.

Here are some of my favorites:

Comfort Me Pants

I am a big believer that being comfortable doesn’t have to mean wearing yoga pants every day, which can be tempting for someone who works from home like me.  Which is why I love outfits that have the appearance of being polished but, are also relaxed.  There’s nothing restrictive about this look and thanks to the bright tank + blazer combination, it looks sophisticated even though it feels loose and easy.  I am loving the geo print on them. These bright silky pants are great for dressing up with heels or wearing with flats…and the best part is that they comfortable while looking ultra chic. The trick to wearing bold prints and colors together is to complement the look with a basic blazer and accessories such as classic black pumps. This look also makes a fun outfit for the upcoming St. Patrick’s day festivities.

It is right here in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago and run by a mother & daughters team. And they have these pants in stock currently. I am in love with their unique and on-trend collections. The best part is they curate fashion and decor items from talented artisan designers based locally and around the country. They believe in comfort with style and fashion that makes you feel better. Head on over there soon as they have just the right stuff to cure that ongoing serious case of spring fever, such as these trendy I Madeline printed pants. Alyssa, one of the super friendly owners, would love to show you what more Comfort Me Boutique has in-stored for us for this spring season. Continue reading

Overall obsession

Denim overalls - casual - Samosa POP

Happy Thursday! I have been completely off the grid busy with some much needed family time for the past couple weeks. My parents are visiting all the way from India. (Yay!!) But, I have missed you and I have missed blogging. It’s a beautiful day in the Chicagoland area and today I am talking about a farmer favorite. Overalls may have kicked off in a big way during the spring, but the throwback style is carrying over for the colder months. I am so happy it is here to stay for fall, only now the one-piece styles are longer and ready to be layered with our favorite jackets and knits. Overall, I am obsessed.Denim overalls - casual - closeup - Samosa POP

Overalls are inherently comfortable, so I embraced the causal feel. When dressing them down, the main goal is to keep them from looking disheveled. It is important to pay attention to the details, like swapping flats for a heeled shoe and making sure to wear a slim-fitting top. These leopard print wedges are a comfortable choice and align with the daytime feel.
