A “What I Wore” update just in time for my next trip to Chicago this weekend! (Twice in 2 weeks!)
Two weeks ago I went to Chicago for a friend’s wedding. It was my first time and I heard heard so many cool things about the city, so I was REALLY excited. Before all the wedding chaos set in (Left Brain was the best man), we had one day to explore downtown Chicago. I loved it, but apparently it’s cold 7 months of the year (definitely not moving there).
This “What I Wore” post is very special to me 🙂 I let you see a glimpse into my heritage and traditional clothing (with a modern design of course).
Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days! I was busy working on my midterm for my graduate Engineering Management class. Bleh. That’s over, back to posting!
A few weeks ago I went up to Philadelphia for a basketball tournament my husband was playing in. Of course I had to support him in style.
I wore this gold maxi skirt with a simple striped black top, a sparkly bracelet and sparkly earrings. I tried it with my J.Crew venus-fly trap necklace and it looked matronly, so I decided to keep it simple. I grabbed my moto jacket just in case it got chilly (which it did). I’m also wearing tan and gold sandals, but you can’t see those under the skirt. Paired with my clutch, this look is one of my favorites so far.
I definitely stood out among the other spectators. In a good way.
Psttt: Don’t forget, there are only a few more hours to enter my giveaway.

It’s been snowing and I’ve had the last three days off of work. I finally worked up the courage to go utside our apartment, dress up, and meet my husband downtown for lunch (he still had work :P). I decided to pair a feminine skirt and sweater with a textured (but slightly-feminine) faux leather jacket. I wanted to keep it neutral and let my lip(color) do most of the talking.
