The blazing, humid Chicago heat is a far cry from the temperate climate of the Pacific Northwest.  The heat drive me to light silk dresses paired with cute flats made for walking.  And what better dress to take to an urban jungle than one printed with zebras, tigers and giraffes? (Oh my!)   

On the plus side? Ice cold beer tastes all the sweeter in that kind of weather.  And you can bet that I was taking advantage of that.  

Thanks for stopping by! 

Polkapendence Day

Independence Day is a fantastic day to remember our freedoms and what a blessing it is to have them.  It's also a great day to kick back, have a barbeque and enjoy the dead of summer!  And to beat the head, there's nothing like an easy shorts and tank combination.  Thinking I'm going to wear something like this tomorrow.

Polkapendence Day

I love a good polka dot.  (Could you tell?)  Throw in some neutral cognac accessories, a sun hat, sunglasses and a dash of red lipstick and you're set!  Time to eat some grilled food, watch some fireworks and hit the malls for limited hours! 

How do you dress for independence day?  Do you go with the full Americana theme?  Dress the way you always do? Purposely go against the grain? Share in the comments! 

Happy 4th of July everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

My, my, how time has passed!  I told myself that I would take a brief hiatus to deal with wedding planning and re-branding my blog.  Brief turned into 4 months! And while I can't promise that I will be around as consistently as I want to, I will commit to blogging as often as I can. And I do feel the pull now and again to take outfit pictures and post them.

To show how long it's been, these pictures were taking in early spring, when we were still shopping wedding venues.  This was taken on the balcony of the Joliet Union Station venue.  It was hecka windy out there!  And while that didn't end up being our final choice due to distance and finding another place that eked them out of the running, it's a wonderful, unique choice.

And as many of you probably know, Google Reader is going away today.  So of course, I had to work in a post prior to it going done.  If you're still inclined to follow me, please feel free to do so on these other channels!
