Sunday Moment of Zen: Burberry Fall/Winter 2012

I know I’m jumping the gun again in talking about fall and winter already, but you know as well as I that the store are starting to stack up on sweaters, blazers, and all things pre-fall already. So there’s no use ignoring it, it’s time to get excited! The question is, which collection to be most excited about seeing ripped off in store like H&M and Forever21? For me it’s the Autumn/Winter Burberry collection. And it has been since it debuted in early spring of this year, so you know I’m in love. I just adore the full bodied shape of the coats and that this fall collection is bringing back the belted coat. The collection of belts is adorable as well – big statement bows and animal heads. My goal for the winter is to find a similar elastic belt with a big wolf head buckle like in the picture below. How awesome would that be (inner squeeeeeeeee)?

Anyway, check out the full show below and get excited about wearing pretty coats again with me!

What was your favorite fall/winter 2012 runway collection?

What I Wore: The Shedd Aquarium Edition

I LOVE the aquarium. Period. Done. Love it. It is my favorite tourist trap in Chicago. I go to Shedd Aquarium every year around my birthday because it’s the only time of year I can guilt people into going with me. Although I’m finally starting to realize that I’m not the only aquarium lover in the bunch and I probably don’t have to guilt as hard as I have been.

These pictures were taken right along side the aquarium on the long winding path around it. It’s days like this that make me love Chicago and never want to leave. But don’t you worry, I’ll be eating those words as soon as winter rolls around. Also the wind was kickin’ that day and my hair looks nuts in absolutely every photo for this outfit, but I figured you could still see the outfit well enough so it shouldn’t really matter. Let’s face it, you’re not here to see me, it’s all about clothes! And you get to see a little backdrop of the city and Lake Michigan so that’s nice. Oh lake, how I love your ecoli goodness.



Sleeveless chiffon dress – Topshop (similar dress that I also tried on)
Strappy sandal heels – Ruche (they have a ton of adorable shoes)

And just for fun here’s a picture of me going crazy because of how windy it was and some shots from the Shedd Aquarium!
