Glitter Forever 21 Skirt  |  Chanel Bag  |  Glitter Christian Louboutin (similar here and here)  | 

 t+j Designs earrings and necklace (to be launched in Sept)

One of my favorite purchases recently, my Bella Dahl Chambray Shirt from Kitson in LA.  I’ve been on the search this summer for a perfect chambray shirt that was different than the classic shirt and I found it last weekend!  Super soft chambray, a pretty color, wide cuffs and a swoop back style that you can’t see in my outfit; I found exactly what I was looking for.  The Forever 21 skirt was a purchase last year and it was one of those pieces I thought was cute and fun, but I couldn’t figure out the perfect top to go with it. Well, while heading out this weekend I put this outfit together and viola, it worked! 

Even though it’s still pretty warm in Chicago, I always bring a layering piece with me, as I get cold in restaurants.  Our weather is slowly changing to fall, so you never know when you’ll need a jacket.  A black blazer is something I always recommend everyone have in her wardrobe.  I recently found this BB Dakota one that has leather trim at the collar which I’m thinking I need. 

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  Thank you for all the kind, nice, and supportive comments from my last posting!  I try to keep up and check everyone’s blog also, I have found quite a few that I’m loving too.  

Don’t forget to treat yourself to a pretty set of earrings from our jewelry line t+j Designs, with the promo code LABORDAY you’ll get 25% off all earrings!

    You have such a great feel for textures and colors. A chambray shirt and glitter skirt are a perfect combo. A simple black blazer tones down the pizzazz of the outfit to make the whole look very elegant. You look beautiful!
