OOTD 1.10.18: Floral Blouse

black floral blouse with high waisted skinny jeans

Black Floral Blouse | High Waist Skinny Jeans (33% off, size down one size!) | Black Pumps (a classic!) | Black Tote Bag | Black Parka | Marble iPhone Case

I LOVE this blouse. I seriously love it. It comes in 3 different print and is surprisingly very flattering! I love the tiered sleeves! It can easily be worn with any bottom for you girls that work in a more corporate office. My favorite work skirt that I would style it with would work too! Check out the other colors too if red isn’t your thing!

I’m wearing my favorite high waisted skinnies again! I’ve talked about this before but I love the ankle peg length. It makes them so easy to style with any kind of shoe. The high waist also makes it so easy to style that tucked in look. Seriously, fool proof. Just size down a size because they are pretty stretchy!!

I’ve also been getting a lot of questions on how I keep my heels in shape or how I wear heels so much! I don’t wear my heels on my walk to work! I just put them on once I get to my desk. For the walk, I alternate between UGGs, Hunter Boots, and SORELs depending on the weather. If it’s rainy and really wet, I’ll go with Hunter Boots (these are 30% off right now)! SORELs are the best for really heavy snow. And UGGs are just so easy to slip on and off that it’s not a huge ordeal when I’m at my desk – I wear these most of the time and these are on sale for 40% off right now! This post on the best tall boots for winter might help you guys too!

Being tall has its challenges. Sometimes no matter how hard you want to rock a trend, your body is just going to answer with a resounding NO. It’s not going to work. But every now and then, you might find an exception to the rule. For me, it was this red floral off the shoulder romper.

PS. it’s from Nordstrom.

Now that we don’t have a car (we sold both of ours once we moved to Chicago last fall), I find myself having to carry a lot more with me. While my shoulders are getting stronger from toting around all my stuff, I’m all about packing as light as I can. I don’t need to look like The Hulk. So many of the dresses in this A Dress A Day series have been about versatility. Today, I’m making it obvious as I take a dress from day to night! I even challenged Leah from Eat Pray Wear Love to do the same!

Hello yellow! When is the last time you went on a picnic in a park? Or even at the beach? It’s not often that Matt and I make time for picnics. And as I talked about on Saturday, there aren’t a whole love of patches of grass living in a big city. Sure, LA was a big city but there were definitely more parks in our neighborhood. I remember Matt and I doing a date night in one of our local spots once during the summer. It was so fun to switch things up a bit. Saying pass to our usual dinner spots and getting outside was refreshing!

Sooo, there aren’t many gardens in downtown Chicago. However, there are a lot of patios! At some point during the year, the city decides that it’s time to bring the patios out. Overnight, you see outdoor seating and flower filled planters pop up. Literally, overnight. Coming from Southern California, this is something that makes sense in hindsight but was a little weird for me the first day I saw all these lounge areas coming out of nowhere. These are like big cities’ versions of gardens. So, I broke out this gorgeous off the shoulder maxi dress!
