After going in between meetings and showroom visits, sometimes you just want to lift some of the day's weight by kicking off the heels and edging into a comfortable pair of flats. I opted for these blush pink ones from T&N Collection to go with my low-draped top and high waisted trousers- I kind of like the balance that the casual flats give to the otherwise structured ensemble. Not to mention, T&N Collection heads a 'footprint program' wherein the ladies behind T&N work with a different foundation every year to fund a project - comfort with a cause! To show your support, or simply just to have a pair because who doesn't need that go-to pair of flats, enter the code "NB14" to receive 15% off your order (you can even personalize the back of each pair for yourself, or as a gift to someone special). Happy Thursday and Halloween guys x

Hey there. Whoops, didn't mean to fall off the face of the earth... but I needed a couple of days to collect some thoughts and catch up after being at sea for a week. No doubt, being with Princess Cruises was rather relaxing, but when you're away for more than three days you can count on coming back to an irrepressible amount of emails, errands, etc. We stopped at two ports, Grand Cayman Islands and Cozumel, and got to swim with stingrays, climb the Mayan Ruins! I can't wait to share some photos with you all after I've sorted them out. In the mean time, here's some Resort 2015 inspo (dying over that sporty Barbara Bui vibe in the first three images, and that Lanvin sheen in what could possibly be the most perfect shade of blue) and pieces to shop for any upcoming tropical trips! Anyone planning on going on a cruise in the next few months?

I might literally have been glued to this suede hat and faux fur jacket all week long during my trip in Chicago. This Ladakh x UO jacket kind of goes with just about anything, at any given time of the day- a late night stroll through Wicker Park over comfy just-rolled-off-the-plane attire, during an entire day's worth of meandering through Logan Square and downtown, or with an all-black outfit for a night of delectable eats and libations. And this Lovely Bird hat, slouchy in the right areas and made in the perfect color, might be my favorite item from UO by far. I'm a lover of hat accessories and I could see this worn throughout the year. Urban, you are killin' me with all of these coat and hat options! Shop some of my favorites here:

I was recently introduced to PIOL and it brought me back to the times when I'd round up scraps of my mom's fabric collection and place them against my army of dolls to see what shirt or dress I could make unique to each one. PIOL is an intuitive website that allows you to create a custom-fit dress made to highlight our unique features such as our hair, eye, and skin colors. Once you settle on a preferred silhouette, you're taken into the 'design room' where you can alter the neckline, sleeve length, hem line, and then select from a handful of fabrics to utilize. It's so fun being able to complete a design online and even more remarkable having that dress come to life and delivered at your door step just four weeks later. A dress made to measure you and specifically you. As you might know, I'm a lover of neutrals and long-sleeved mini dresses so I went with exactly that- a salt and peppered shift with pockets for good measure. I might just be going back to make another shift in camel, I'm addicted.
