Tommy Hilfiger White Blazer (similar here)  |  Karen Zambos Vintage Couture  |  
Forever 21 Chambray Shorts  |  Christian Louboutin Espadrilles  |  YSL Muse Bag
t+j Designs necklace, ring, bracelet (collection to launch this month)

A wore this a week ago when it was warmer, I'm still in disbelief by how quickly the weather changed.  I was freezing yesterday and actually had a trench on!  Still wearing my white blazer because I make my own rules and if it looks great, I'm still wearing it.  I love, love my  Karen Zambos top.  Her designs are always unique, stylish, and vintage inspired.  My top has frayed scalloped edges and a pretty feather print.  Look below for some Karen's pieces that I'm loving and two of them are on sale!

Since moving to Chicago, I'm always on the search for new, interesting food and I love Asian food.  Not too far from our neighborhood, the Bento Box opened up earlier this year and we love this place.  It's a bit expensive for a bento box around $17, but the food is super fresh, delicious, and all of it, including the kimichi, is homemade by the chef.  They started as a catering company and opened up this little shop due to their popularity.  So glad they did because it's one our favorite spots.  

Some of Karen's pieces I'm loving:



Aren't these pieces great?  And they transitional so well into fall with a black blazer or denim.

  1. Happy Friday Jen!!! Omg'd that food looks so delish. Your outfit is super cute! That yellow top looks so good on you. I see why you like it so. :) I really love how you put your outfits together. Your look comes across as effortless. That's a good thing. Some people try so hard. You're talented!

  4. I agree with the comments above; you look sophisticated, chic and effortless. I really admire (and hope to emulate) that style. (I'm so glad Tiffany recommended your blog. Heck, I'm glad that she encouraged you to start one! You two sisters have amazing style. And I can't wait for the new pieces coming out on t + j designs. I bought the mixed black and gold chain necklace; I get a lot of compliments on it.)

    I hope it's okay to ask a question here: What do you think about your YSL Muse? Do you find it versatile, classic and chic? And what about the quality? I just bought one in dark gray, but I'm still on the fence about it.

  17. There is a place in my town that does a fusion of Asian and burgers and they have a bento box with sushi, Asian apps, and a mini burger! It's my fave, and I order it every time I go. Btw, I want one of those bracelets! Love it! :)

  18. I was going to ask if you wore that recently b/c it's been so chilly lately in Toronto! You look lovely as usual, I love that yellow tops, so girly and flowy!

  19. @Belle - hope you get this message ! YSL Muse bag, I have had mine for almost 5 years and I do think it still looks great and was a great purchase. The only think is I would have purchased it in patent rather than leather but they came out with patent leather after I purchased mine. You have to love something that spendy, so really make sure you love it!

  22. Thanks, Jen! (And thanks, Tiffany! I got your e-mail; I'm going to write back!) Still on the fence about it; I try to limit myself to one luxury bag purchase a year. If I got this now, I'll have to refrain from buying a bag for 2012 (which might be hard).

    Glad to know that you still love yours!

  25. That is a great top! I love the yellow color on you... and I know, I also don't care much about wearing white past labour day! I just want to look good, haha! Plus, ironically enough, I didn't even pull my white pants out more than once because it was just too hot, and now that it's cooled down... I want to wear them. I'm not one for sticking to rules anyway so I don't care.

    I love your white blazer! It's beautiful! And those pieces you chose... gorgeous. Wish I was allowed to shop! ;)

  26. The espadrilles are such a nice touch to the outfit! I can see that you're not quite ready to say goodbye to summer yet with your colorful ensemble (and it's so very pretty!)

    I'm ready to leave the heat behind, though, and I can't wait for fall fashion to kick in!
