I'm Back: My First of Many Chicago Blog Posts

I'm back from my hiatus with my first Chicago blog post! I'm all moved in and am loving all the new changes in my life. There's still much to be done to the apartment but it's getting closer to feeling "home." I'm extremely enjoying my new position with Neiman Marcus, it's showing to be such a wonderful community to be apart of. If you're in Chicago this Thursday evening be sure come by Neiman Marcus for our fabulous Fashion's Night Out fashion show. And if you're a fellow Chicago blogger please feel welcome to contact me and say "hi!" I love meeting new people and would love to get the scoop on all the best boutiques and thrift shops in town. Where ever you're at this Thursday enjoy your city's own Fashion's Night Out, I can just feel it's going to be a spectacular one!

My most cherished piece here is the straw hat which I got from my favorite KC antique mall ($10). The green and navy color block cardigan I've only just now worn, I got it a few month ago at Target ($30). It's by one of their guest designers, Miami by The Webster. The flats are Calvin Klein from Macy's ($60). The MK shades are from TJ ($20). I got the earrings from Francesca's ($12). And finally the blouse and shorts are both vintage pieces ($2+$10).
Total out of pocket: $144
