Fringe benefits

Happy New Year! As I get older, it seems I say this more and more – time seems to be running by like water. The start of 2016 is a big year for me. It is the year I’m going to turn thirty. One of the fringe benefits of this year is that it gives me time to contemplate and still act on anything I want to have ready for the next decade of my life.

Fur Closure

Continuing the theme from last week, I wanted to show you another way to wear a trend from Fall 2015 - The Fur collar. But first, we must discuss the very contentious topic of fur itself. I don't buy or wear fur. But at the same time, I haven't been able to cut leather out of my closet - with clothes, bags or shoes. It off course is a very personal choice and I certainly don't want to sound like I have any authority to preach.

Colorblocked spring

Color blocking is a trend I hadn't experimented with a lot till this beautiful blanket scarf from Zara walked into my life.

Now that the weather has let up, I am having so much fun interpreting this scarf in different ways. Here I wore it simply like a blanket.

A cold winter day in Chicago

  I’ve always loved tonal dressing and try to play off the same family of colors as much as possible. Here I’ve played with three variations of pink. The seriousness of the pleats is softened by the silk and the faux fur adds another element of softness. I’ve always tried to get more use out of my summer wardrobe by layering in the fall. A fun note about the ring – it was used by queens in the olden days to monitor the going in and out of strangers inconspicuously. I had been searching for it for the past few
