Christian Louboutin Red Patent Pumps (similar here and here)  |  Urban Expressions clutch  |

It's amazing how quickly the weather can change in Chicago!  A week ago it was 90 and now it's in the 70's, so I've been adjusting my wardrobe quickly with layering pieces.  I'm having one of those weeks where I can't seem to catch up with everything; I'm behind on blogging and work and have some impending deadlines next week to catch up on.  For those of you who have left me lovely comments, I promise to get back to you by the end of this week!  

It seems that many of you enjoyed seeing a glimpse of my place; here is a link, which I posted a couple months ago on my entire first floor and what it looked like before.  

Many of you have noticed I like to mix high and low priced items, in this particular outfit, the denim is $10, the clutch is $30, I found a similar J Crew top that is $64, and the jewelry will be less than $60.  With starting our own jewelry business, it's been important for me to cut back on some of my expenses so finding deals and quality inexpensive items are essential.  Forever 21 is still one of my favorites, J. Crew has the best sales, and signing up for online email notifications is how I keep up.  What about you?  How do you spot the best deals?

  7. Love the blazer with it's tight metallic threads...from afar looks neutral enough to pair with everyday separates but up close, a class of it's own! Work it girl!

  18. Hi, I love this look, and I love the price of this look :) I really like my designer items as well, but rely on places like Aritzia and Zara for the more trendy items in my closet. I really like your necklace and look forward to seeing it on your jewelery website soon! I echo everyone's thoughts here when they say that you have great personal style- because you do!!

  37. Hi Jen! Thanks so much for the nice comment on my blog. I just moved to San Francisco from Chicago this summer. Chicago weather is unpredictable, but you're doing a great job layering. I have a similar striped tunic, so I may have to steal this look. :)

    Have a great weekend!
