ALL TORN UP


The last few weeks of summer are here and our schedules are crazy! So, we decided to share a quick and easy outfit that will easily transition into the Fall. Keep reading to learn where you can cop our look.


With summer ending and the Fall semester quickly approaching, picking out a cute outfit takes a backseat to functionality. From running around for errands to going to classes in an uncomfortable lecture hall, it's important to have a few quick outfits to turn to that are easy to move in and comfortable. 

My outfit here is seriously so comfortable. The top I'm wearing is from Free People, I couldn't find it online anymore but it is so soft so I would recommend looking for a similar one that is currently available there! My Joes Jeans are also incredibly soft, but a warning, they do stretch out throughout the day so size down! As you may have noticed, I wear the choker pictured above a lot and that's because it goes with almost anything and I like what it adds to an everyday look. Although I haven't uploaded a post yet wearing the belt, it is absolutely a staple in my wardrobe. It reminds me of the black belts stars like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid were rocking last Spring and I definitely think it will stay in style into the Fall.

FLORAL FLAVOR


This summer has been crazy hot so on our days off we like to opt for light pieces like this romper to try to beat the heat. Learn more about this look below.

It has been in the 90s all week here in Chicago and it's almost unbearable! Instead of hiding inside today with the air conditioning on full blast, I ran some errands in this romper and was SO comfortable. This exact romper is no longer available but I linked a similar one above. The one I'm wearing is so lightweight and the open back helps me stay cool despite the heat and humidity. I also like it because although it is a floral print, it doesn't feel too girly, so it better suits my style. I paired it with my black lace-up flats (I warned everyone that I wear them A LOT!) and a simple grey Kate Spade bag. This exact bag is also no longer available but I would really recommend Kate Spade in general, their purses are super durable and they have great sales every few months where you can snag a bag for 75% off. 

I hope everyone keeps cool this weekend and keep a lookout for a post Sunday on our weekend wear and #wearweate.

WORK WEAR


It's the summer before senior year and internships are SO important as we head into our final year as students. Making a good impression on the job is key, but it's also important to dress for the part.

As college students, employers almost expect that we are disheveled and unprepared and it's our job to go above and beyond to prove ourselves. Beyond being responsible and timely with your assignments at work, it's important to dress to impress. You don't want to wear what you wear on the weekend with your friends, but that doesn't mean you can't recycle some key pieces in the office from your everyday look. 

I love my white tank from this look. It's so versatile and I can easily wear it to work or at a nice restaurant in the city, it literally goes with everything. The slacks I'm wearing are THE BEST! They no longer come in the pattern I'm wearing but the exact same pant in different colors is linked above. They are so comfortable and have some stretch to them, so they are perfect for the 9-5. My only complaint is that they only have faux pockets. 

I wear the lace-up flats from this look all the time, seriously! I got them last fall from Steve Madden and was worried at first that they would only be good for just the fall season but I actually have been able to wear them a lot this summer, despite their darker color. My bag is also so useful, despite the fact that it's HUGE! I've found that the size is perfect for an internship setting, especially since I have to lug my laptop back and forth on the CTA each day. I also like to be over prepared for whatever may come my way during the workday, so this bag can fit anything I may need. Lastly, I always wear a watch at my internship so I can quickly check the time without pulling out my iPhone. I love my Kate Spade watch, the face is the perfect size and it is so high-quality, I know I'll have it for a long time.
