I’m always trying to get the most out of my clothes by wearing them in as many ways as possible. Today it’s all about this vest. Last time I wore it open with a black lace dress. Now, it’s on its own as a top.
One of the great things about being in the blogging community is that there are always events to go to. And while I can’t go to everything, I’m always down for the events that Alison puts together.
Last Wednesday I went to the Back to School Media Soiree at The Chopping Block. It was great to be introduced to new brands and to have the chance to connect with bloggers in person. (Being behind the computer is only so much fun, you know.)
Everything there was school-related. Cooking demos, great products and giveaways…I even won two allergy-free pillows from Dacron! And everyone got to bring home two fabulous bags of goodies! Thanks to these lovely sponsors for supporting Chicago bloggers:
I can’t believe we’re starting the second week of September! The weather, for the most part, has been really nice. Some crazy rain, but definitely still weather for showing skin.
Our weekends have been filled with parties. When these pictures were taken last week, we were at a family reunion and the temps were in the mid 80’s. I’ve since packed away these wedges and striped shorts. But this silk tank stays out all year. It’s perfect by itself on warm days and equally great under a blazer once things cool down.
Have you started to transition your clothes yet? After August is over, I usually start packing away my sandals and digging out my cardigan sweaters.

I’ve been on a little bit on a shopping freeze recently. What I really need to do before I buy anything else is clean out my closest and drawers, evaluate what I need, then go shopping. And that’s just too much work right now! So I’ve been relaying on my accessories to switch things up a bit.
I definitely need to clean out the kids’ clothes though! I’ll be co-hosting a children’s clothing swap later in the month with Jessica and Leyla and I’m totally going to take advantage to snatching some new-to-us stuff for Ivan. Are you local? I’d love to see you join in on the fun!
