This outfit was inspired by my 5-year-old.  She picks out her own clothes for school everyday and wore a top over one of her dresses.  I’ve worn dresses as skirts before, but hadn’t even thought about it until I saw what she was wearing.  My little fashionista.

Turns out, were not the only ones working our closet.  My friend Rena has a blouse over dress challenge going on.  You can read about the details here.  If interested, you have until next Friday.

Outfit for Work | Black and White

I have been reaching for way too much black and white recently.  It’s just so easy…

I did end up trying to incorporate more color into my outfits while I was planning for the week on Sunday.  (Yes.  I plan all my outfits for the week.  If I’m not organized, I fall apart.)  Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I can share those outfits soon!

I’m hoping this week goes by fast!  On Sunday I’m co-hosting a children’s clothing swap event.  It’s going to be super fun!  If you’re a Chicago reader, there’s a few tickets left.  (Click here to purchase.)  I hope to see you there!!

Today I have all sorts of goodness to share!  First of all, let’s talk about this fun statement necklace!  It’s gifted from 9th & Elm – a site that sells handmade and independent designs.  It’s such a fun piece!  And it looks great with this vintage maxi.  Win-win! 

Speaking of maxi skirts, here’s a little something for those of you who are still a bit on the fence about giving this skirt length a try…or maybe you’re looking to change up your styling a little.

Over the weekend I was in and out of downtown…BlogHer ’13 was in Chicago and I had some socializing to do!!

The weekend felt like a blur!  It was so great to meet other bloggers and chat in person!  In case you’re not following KUF through any social media channels (though you totally should!), here’s some of the highlights from the weekend fun…
