Top Eight // December 2017 Favorites

Like my "four things about me" posts, I am also starting a monthly series on my favorite fashion and beauty products. I'm constantly looking for the best clothes, makeup, and skin products and I thought it was time I share my favorites for each month! I wanted to get the ball rolling before the new year, and I would love for you to chime in on anything you think I should try next month! For now, let's discuss what I'm loving this December!

four things about me 12.19

As we head into the new year, with the obvious goal in mind to grow this blog, I'm also hoping to open up about myself a bit more. I know one of my favorite parts of following other bloggers is feeling like I'm getting to know them – from who they are to how they got started in this crazy industry. While I'm still a very small account, it's never too soon to start opening up and letting those of you who are already following get to know me a little better. This is a series I hope to run monthly in 2018, along with another series on my monthly favorites (aka all the fashion and beauty options I'm loving). I hope you enjoy!

While we are all in a holiday haze, New Years Eve is quickly approaching. I don't know about you, but I always end up scrambling on the 31st, desperately looking for the perfect outfit. We all want to strut into the New Year looking our best, and what better way to do it than in a sleek black dress? And no, that doesn't mean you'll look simple, "basic," or boring – clearly the picture of Karlie Kloss is evidence to the contrary. Let's discuss.

My Opinion On All-Black Looks

For those of you who have been following me for the last year and half, this post may come as a surprise to you. For a lot of my life (and my first few months *officially* blogging), I often veered towards an all-black outfit – it's classic, chic and, most importantly, easy to put together.  However, as I get more involved in the fashion world and continue to explore my personal style, I've found that a black-fit is an easy cop-out. Hear me out.

Holiday Dress Guide

Okay, I know we only just got done with Thanksgiving, but I like to plan ahead! It's never too early to start figuring out your holiday plans, and more importantly, your holiday outfit. There are only a few weeks until Christmas (and Hanukkah!) and we all want to dress to impress. Whether you're already planning each and every detail of your outfit or you're just starting to browse, here are some ideas to get you inspired this holiday season.

Cyber Monday Haul

Black Friday may be one of the best days of the year, but for those of us who hate long lines and chaotic stores packed with people, Cyber Monday is so much better. While it can be tempting to buy everything you see just because of the incredible pricing, it's important to take a step back and think about how you will wear each item. To help you out, I've put together a few of my favorite items from today's sales – there's still plenty of time to get your hands on everything! Here's a definitive list of all the best Cyber Monday deals, you won't want to miss it.

Best Fall Sweaters of 2017

I am SO happy it's finally sweater weather! It was hot for so long, I was ready to pack away my summer clothes months ago. Chicago goes 0 to 100 real quick, so it's no surprise the weather went from 60º to snowing in a matter of two weeks – thankfully I was prepared. For those who aren't as excited for the cold weather as me (am I crazy?!), give me a chance to  convince you with some of my favorite fall sweaters.

The Issue With "Femme" T-Shirts

Fashion is an incredible outlet to express ourselves and make a statement. Walking down the city streets, you can tell so much about a person based on what they wear. For that reason, it's also important to know the meaning behind what you buy before you strut down the train's platform. One new trend is the "femme" t-shirt. Tees with this word are sold in every mainstream shop: from Topshop, to Urban Outfitters and Pacsun. Yes, the word in French means "woman," but it has quite a different meaning in English. Didn't know that? Here's what you need to know before buying into this trend.

RPM Italian #WearWeAte

There's so much amazing food in Chicago, there's always something new to try across the city. RPM Italian has been on my list for years but I never got around to going, that is, until now. In honor of finally checking it off my bucket list, let's talk about what I liked, didn't like, and my recommendations for my fellow Chicagoans. Is this Chicago hotspot worth the hype? You'll see.

Mood Board: Rosey Red

Red has been on my radar since Bella Hadid rocked that iconic red dress in Cannes, and since then the shade has been popping up all over the runway – and it's just in time for fall! With the leaves changing and Christmas fast approaching (I personally start listening to holiday music in September), there's no better time to start rocking this bold color than now.

Best Camel Coats Under $200

Is anyone else obsessed with the camel coat trend right now?! I've always loved camel coats but felt that they were a more formal style choice, and with my style being so casual, I've stopped myself from buying it. But this year, with menswear so in right now, this coat is the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. If you are also loving this trend right now, keep reading to find my top twelve choices, all under $200!

73 Questions With Madeline

Alright guys, this week we are doing something a little different here on Wear We Roam. While I love my weekly fashion posts, I thought I would switch it up this week with something that will help everyone get to know me better! As this bog continues to grow, I hope I can keep giving everyone a little insight into who I am beyond my taste in clothes. 

This week we are doing a mock Vogue 73 questions post (is anyone else totally obsessed with these videos?!) If you don't know what I'm referencing, Vogue often makes videos interviewing celebrities or influencers and asks them 73 random questions – basically questions they typically don't get asked but give us a sense of who they are. Although this is clearly not Vogue, a girl can dream! Let's get started!

Trending: Polka Dots

Never did I ever think polka dots would make a comeback, especially after my childhood days of rocking the pattern in honor of Minnie Mouse, but fashion will always surprise you!

Orange Is The New Black?

I hate to type it, let alone think it, but orange really may be the new black. This fall, we are seeing more orange and yellow than ever before, and for once, I'm not mad about it.

Fall Slip Dresses

Slip dresses were huge last year, and it seems like the trend will carry into fall. While these light weight dresses were great for the summer heat, they are one of the easiest pieces to transition into the colder seasons – you just have to make a few minor changes.

'The Blogger' Jumpsuit

While I'm sure many of you have heard of the amazing Jessie James Decker, whether it be for her music, her reality TV show, or her gorgeous husband. But how many of you have heard of Jessie's clothing brand "Kittenish"?

Post-Labor Day Whites

While we technically aren't supposed to be wearing white anymore, it's good to break the rules every now and then, especially when it involves a blouse like this one.

LA Travel Diary

Wear We Roam is finally roaming! 

Last weekend, I shipped off to Los Angeles for my best friend's birthday and seriously had the best weekend. I've surprisingly never been to California, so this was a really exciting trip for me. I toured as many areas around LA as I could, ate at some amazing restaurants and even had a HUGE celebrity sighting (keep reading to find out who!) After finally catching up on some much needed sleep, I put together this travel diary to discuss what I loved most, what I wouldn't do again and the memories that will last a lifetime. Let's dive right in!

On Repeat

Déjà vu, right? If you follow me on Instagram, you've definitely seen this on my feed once or twice before, but let me explain why.

dome BEAUTY Finds

Calling all Chicago beauty lovers! After looking everywhere for writing jobs post-graduation, I came across an opportunity at dome BEAUTY and instantly fell in love with their products! Some of you are probably wondering if this is a sponsored post and it is not – these are my true, honest opinions about this brand, and because of my love for the products, I wanted to share.

Latico Leathers

Today we are talking all about Latico Leathers! I've been looking at Latico's bags for a while now, but by coincidence, I received this bag from their brand for graduation. I can't find it online in black but did find it in berry (shop here). I originally fell in love with Latico when I came across this backpack. Isn't it perfect?!  I also recently came across the Blake bag in mahogany and I'm obsessed! I'm hoping to get one of them in the next few months.

T-Shirt Dress With a Twist

I can't believe it is already August! This summer is totally flying by but the temperatures have remained high, making it impossible to throw on my favorite pair of jeans.

Thursday, July 20, 2017


Welcome to the very first edition of #WearWeAte! Chicago has some of the best, most beautiful restaurants in the world and I'm always on a mission to hit the latest and greatest spots.

The Future is Female

One fact I stand firmly by is the fact that women are strong, powerful and "the future." I started Wear We Roam not just with the hopes of breaking into the fashion journalism industry, but with a goal of inspiring and empowering young women like myself. More than anything, I want this blog to empower women (and men) to feel good in their own skin, so I hope to do more posts like this in the future. Okay – now let's get to the look.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks

It's that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is like Black Friday in July and it's the perfect time to stock up on affordable pieces for fall. Here are 12 of my top picks from the sale, all under $150!

Can you tell I've been obsessed with blue lately? After months of wearing black all winter long, it feels nice to finally switch it up with some brighter colors. Literally every time I wear this dress someone compliments the color of it – it's so beautiful! 

Saturday, July 1, 2017


In honor of Wear We Roam turning one this month, I thought we would look back on how I got started and where I'm hoping to take the blog in the future.

Thursday, June 29, 2017


June is one of the few months of the year where I know I'm going to see my friends who I grew up with and I look forward to these few short weeks every year. While we love to go out in downtown Chicago, sometimes we have more fun catching up with a bottle of wine, reminiscing about all our crazy antics and our plans for the future. For these nights, I always turn to a casual cute look that will keep me warm as the temperature drops while we talk into the night.

This season has been all about gingham and I'm loving it! I mostly gravitate towards the classic black and white gingham prints but I've seen gingham in every shade you could imagine every time I'm out shopping. I bought this pair from Zara after seeing them on Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What (unfortunately they are now sold out but I linked some similar pairs below). They are incredibly comfortable and actually so much more versatile than I initially thought and I've worn them a ton since getting them.

This summer, I've been swapping out my shorts for dresses and rompers. They are SO much more comfortable than denim shorts and can be dressed both up and down. What I love most about both dresses and rompers is that it's a complete outfit – you just throw it on, pick a nice pair of shoes, and you're done.

#OOTD 06.05

It's officially *almost* summer and it is HOT! There's nothing I hate more about the summer than denim shorts, but denim skirts are a totally different story.

Monday, May 1, 2017


The temperatures are finally heating up and spring is fully underway, so it's time to put away those all black sweaters and pull out something with a pop of color. I decided to really switch it up from my normal, understated looks in favor of this pink sweater with dramatic tiered sleeves.

Saturday, March 4, 2017


Band tee's are a huge trend right now and there are so many ways to wear them! I've posted before about how I styled by Yeezus concert t-shirt, with simple black jeans and a vintage denim jacket, but here I switched it up a bit. There are endless ways you can dress up or dress down a simple concert tee, it's one of my favorite looks for when I'm in a rush!

Hi, loves! I recently got this bomber after being inspired by my favorite bloggers, Somewhere Lately, and absolutely love it! It has me dreaming of spring & warmer weather and I love the sheerness to it, it makes it more unique.

One of the very few benefits of winter in the Midwest is that when the water freezes over, we can go sliding across the frozen lake. Even though it was almost 50° today, I still dared to step out on the ice in my new Brandy Melville sweater (exact link here).

Winter is here! As you can tell it's finally snowing and yes, I am very cold without my winter jacket.

My semester is officially in full swing and though morning classes are never easy, there's still a way to look cute and feel comfortable for a day full of lectures.

During these cold winter months, style gurus around the world demonstrate how to do the layered look by somehow managing to not look like a snowball in layers of sweaters and jackets paired with precision. But this winter I'm focused on a different layering trend — necklaces.

It's been months and months but I'm finally back and better than ever! Thank you so much to The Sunday Studio for this amazing new blog theme. When I first began this blog I spent HOURS messing around with the template and HTML codes to try to get it to look exactly how I wanted but it just wasn't working for me. So, as any lazy college girl does, I essentially gave up on this blog. Normally I'm not the type to give up and it was eating away at me that I had put so much time and effort into this blog but was pushing it to the side. Thankfully, I came across The Sunday Studio on Etsy and here we are!
