A Day Walk in Night Walks

DSC_7669

I had been pining for these Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk shoes from Lori’s for weeks and finally, they are in my possession!  People have asked, “Dear God, how do you walk in those?” And my reply has been quite simply, it’s magic. They’re designed to be walkable. I even hopped a low fence in these and skipped through puddles for these photos. I had a mini race with someone at work to prove to them they are both awesome and functional, which brings to me to where I wore them this week: work.
I work at an advertising agency where people are more than welcome to express themselves in any way possible whether it’s funky blue tights or a Miller Lite logo button up, people wear anything and everything. I thought the best way to balance these shoes for work would be through a camel colored pant and a thick grey turtleneck–very neutral and unassuming.

Home. It’s always been a somewhat awkward place for me to return to for the holidays. My values and worldview are so drastically different from everyone else in my family, but it’s always good to see them and catch up. 
I wore a pretty little pink dress on Thanksgiving, but I would have fit in more if I wore my lumberjack look from the previous week. I’ve had a hard time styling this dress since it’s shrunk in length so much, but I figured I could squeeze one more wear out of it at a family holiday function. I added black boots to make my Thanksgiving look a little more casual. What do you like to wear for holiday family functions?

Amy

Me_Amy Creyer Close UP
It’s always refreshing to see the amazing outfits Amy of Chicago Street Style styles. We hung out for a bit a couple weeks ago during the Eugenia Kim trunk show and as always, I had some fun snapping photos of her. I love how she’s not afraid of color, various patterns or textures and just has fun with fashion. She has such a passion for her photography and fashion, it puts my feeble efforts to shame. She’s also getting so comfortable on the other side of the lens, it’s been fun to watch her evolve and enjoy herself and not take herself to seriously in her photos. The best photos are always the ones filled with action like the last photo! Check out her street style blog, Chicago Street Style!

Lumberjack

DSC_7454
This weekend has been a miserable one. I’ve been sick and somehow managed to take some pictures to document this in an outfit I really like despite my sickly circumstances. It was pretty warm last Saturday so I layered a cozy flannel and a cropped jacket over my sweatshirt with a pair of vintage Levi cut offs and my new boots from MIA. And that’s all she wrote.
