Our weather hit 80’s and I am loving it!  This week I am helping two fashionable girls with their closets and shopping for their fall/winter wardrobes.  I headed to Michigan Ave. to do some pre-shopping before to get some ideas and see what’s out there.  These cobalt blue Rag & Bone Skinny Jeans have been one of my favorite purchases.  I’ve transitioned into fall mixing it my black blazer as well as my black leather jacket.  I also love it with the girly bow blouse tops that are trending right now.  My next purchase in bottoms is definitely a pair of red pants, I’m still on the search for an affordable pair!

Don’t forget about my giveaway!  If you love my jewelry, sign up for a change to win 1 of 2 items here

    I can't get enough of that shade of denim! It looks so vibrant. And that top is just lots of fun! I don't live in Chicago, I live in Champaign, about 2 hrs south, but I like to visit friends in the city sometimes! ♥ laurathe blog of worldly delights

    surprisingly, my red pair is from f21! it was part of the divine rights of denim collaboration. if not, rag&bone and jbrand fit great too!

    You're so lucky you can still wear sunglasses! It's rainy and gloomy here in the West Coast.Love your top! Once you've found a blazer you love, it feels like you can pair it with so many different outfits!

    I love your blue denim pants! If you're looking for a red pair at a great price, I recommend Fire Skinny Stretch Denim from Nordstrom. Here's the link: http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/fire-skinny-stretch-denim-jeans-juniors/3231546?origin=category&resultback=2026The jeans are as bright as pictured online. I've already worn these jeans several times; they haven't stretched at all. Granted, the jeans don't seem like true denim as to the material. Also, I'm not sure how well they'd wash. (Admittedly, I haven't run them through the washer and dryer yet, but I haven't experienced any dye transfers.) Still, I love these jeans as they allow me to experiment with the colored denim trend without spending a lot of money.

    I love this look! The denim and blouse are fun, but the blazer keeps everything polished.
