Tuesday Transition: 8/28/18

Happy Tuesday! Skipped the Tuesday Transition last week due to my birthday falling on a Tuesday – and doing a cake post instead! Happy to be back this week with the cutest stripe sweater worn three ways! You all know I love a good stripe sweater… and this one is so cute and under $50! It’s cream, with black, blush and grey stripes… so it can be worn with so many things! The length is also perfect… long enough for dresses, jeans, leggings… but also looks cute over a pair of shorts. I’m wearing an XSmall.



My first look is casual and can be worn daily! Classic grey tank, with a cute slightly distressed pair of shorts! I’ve paired it with a neutral shade of wedges and my little backpack. This tank is Madewell and can be worn all year round. Great under any kind of sweater, and works perfectly as a base layer for any jacket or blazer as well. In tanks I get an XSmall… but in their t-shirts I get a small. I love this look because it’s so versatile and casual enough for a low key day, but also cute enough for a day excursion or fun lunch with friends.


My second look is also so easy and fun! A classic black dress and some neutral heels. I choose my grey BP slide on mules with a peep toe. I love any peep toe shoe this time of year. They’re THE transition shoe! Almost a boot, but also a sandal – amen!  Perfect for that in between weather and can also be worn with anything! This little black dress is actually a beach coverup, but works great as a layer under this stripe sweater. The little knot at the bottom gives a great added detail. You can do this with any little black swing dress that has some extra material at the bottom. Will also give the bottom of the dress a little shape, and allow your curves to be hugged a little. This little bag I posted yesterday and it’s literally SO great. Another piece that can be worn as a clutch but also a crossbody! Under $50 and comes in a few colors.



My third look will literally be my fall/winter wardrobe. Jeans, long sweater, and cute cami or top with boots. These boots are the perfect beige color and go with everything. I snagged them during the Nsale, and while they’re a splurge full price, they’re comfortable and go with a lot – so they’re worth the investment. Just saw they are on sale for $90 again so grab them while you can! Any similar boot will work with this look though! Any color cami, and color boot, and bag combination will be adorable with this sweater. Dark jeans, distressed, medium tone… all will give this third look a different twist and can be modified for any event. I love this look for work. My office is business casual and with some cute jewels, it’s perfect for work!

Tuesday Transition: 8/14/18

Alright… I posted this little body suit last week, but it’s also my pick for the second Tuesday Transition! Wohoo! Still on sale and super adorable styled so many ways!


This first look is a classic pair of white jean shorts! These Levi’s have been on repeat all summer. I love them and they are so comfy! Toss on a jean jacket to keep it casual, and your favorite pair of tennis shoes. This is perfect for brunch, running errands, meeting up with friends… anything really!



The second look is my part look! These shoes! OMG they’re so perfect for a night out and dancing! They also just went on MEGA sale for $23!!! I’ve simply paired them with white jeans and a gold bag… and the look is complete for a night out with your sig other or girl friends!


My third look is another pair of denim shorts, this time a medium shade. I’ve paired them with my favorite white wedges, and a long linen blend cardigan in a beige shade that matches the stripes. This is so perfect for when we get a little chill in the air. You may not want to wear pants yet, but need a little extra warmth, so this light weight sweater does the trick!



Last look is the best… because fall is my favorite time of year! Sweaters and booties…. YASS! I want this weather all year round. These booties were part of the #nsale, but are definitely worth the full price tag. Great color and the heel is not super high so they’re comfortable to walk in. They have a cute zipper up the side and will be great with ankle cut jeans like the one’s I’m wearing, or a cute dress too! This sweater is also worth the splurge. It’s the softest thing ever and the fit is perfect. I’m wearing an Xsmall and just waiting for the grey color to come in stock so I can snag that as well!

Tuesday Transition: 8/7/18

YAY! First post of a new series and I’m so excited to keep sharing all through August! Every Tuesday of this month, I’ll be showing you how to tank a summer staple… and transition it different way’s into the fall!

Each year… I feel like I spend one whole weekend packing up all my summer clothes under my bed, and making room for all the fall and winter clothes in my closet. However, there are so many pieces that you don’t have to classify as “summer” and can keep in your closet all year round! Dresses, tanks, t-shirts, cami’s – all can be worn as great layering pieces as we move to the fall and winter seasons.


Kelly… it’s August and still super hot…. yes, I’m aware! However summer is winding down and before you know it, my favorite season will be here and it’s out with the sandals and tanks, and in with the booties and sweaters! YAY… I love fall in Chicago. Stores will also start their summer sales, and will be bringing in all the fall favorites to their sites. Thankfully, I took advantage of the Nordstrom half yearly sale… and have already stocked up on all my fall and winter favorites to push me through two season of clothing!

This little dress is a perfect example of a transition piece. One, it’s super comfy and stretchy. A standout on it’s own, but also can really transform into a new outfit with the right added pieces. It can be dressy for a date night, or casual for the office or a casual night out with friends. This first look I’ve just paired it with some simple heels, and a cute bag. So easy, comfortable, and chic for where ever you’re headed to. Amp it up with some fun statement earrings to give it a little more spice! This little blue dress is slinky and fun… but not just for summer! It’s only $ 23 currently – on sale!


My second look is an everyday look as we head into fall! I’ve paired it with a pointed toe flat that has a little embellishment on it, and a chunky warm fall sweater. I can actually wear this to work with my office dress code. It’s stretchy so it can be pulled down for an appropriate length, and the sweater covers the areas where it may look a little too tight! You could also swap your flats for a cute bootie! Rock your best tote and you’re ready for work, or just wear for a casual everyday look. There are so many great longer length sweaters for this type of look.


Another way you could wear this is super casual with some leggings and denim jacket with sneakers. Such a versatile little dress – but no need to hide it in storage through the colder months!
