It’s been such a great weekend in Chicago. I took advantage of the warm weather with my friend Jaden doing some Christmas shopping downtown. It was the perfect temperature for walking around and dodging all the tourists on the streets. It was just what I needed after spending the morning yelling at Bailey for knocking the Christmas tree over and then hearing a crash when my drying rack in the kitchen somehow collapsed, shattering a couple dishes.
J put me in a better mode — plus I picked up a few more ornaments to round out my tree — so I’d say it was a success. And I can’t forget that we got free tiramisu at Eataly. Dang, it was so good.
Leather is a staple in my wardrobe. It wouldn’t be an understatement to say I often live in a leather jacket. I loved styling this jacket with black and white stripes and a leopard beanie from Nordstrom. I snagged this hat on a major deal a couple weekends ago so it’s out of stock now, but here’s a different leopard beanie and other cute hats. I’ve also been wearing this brown lipstick on repeat. It’s the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Biscotti. If you follow my blog, you know I’m a big lipstick gal, and many of the shades I wear are Stila or Tarte. I love a matte shade that stays on for hours.
