Welcome to the first Style Board post! Every month I will post a style collage that incorporates some key seasonal wardrobe pieces and current trends and show how they can be mixed and matched for maximum wear! In this collage, I have highlighted some early summer season pieces. Chicago weather is always unpredictable which usually means you will still need to be wearing a jacket or sweater in June, especially in the evening! I am absolutely in love with this faux leather jacket from Zara. (Should I tell you that I stole it from my daughter’s closet and that it is only $69?!) The color is perfect for this time of year and the quality of faux leather is some of the best I have seen. June weather also might mean you may not quite have your summer glow yet so having a great maxi length dress and light wash denim on hand helps! BLANKNYC is one of my favorite denim lines for great quality denim under $100. Of course, you want to be wearing the hottest summer trends as soon as possible so I have made room for them too-an off the shoulder top, choker (but with a new twist-wink, wink!) and fringe earrings. As always, a neutral shoe works for it all!
Gold necklace, bracelet and ring available at Alixandra Collection stores.
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave comments or questions. I will be hitting up some fun Chicago spots this summer and bringing them to the blog soon!
