Truth be told, I love a basic outfit. Something that's easy to wear and can take me to and from different activities. I find myself running around more in Chicago and tend to lean on casual cute outfits more than I thought. 

I normally save this sweater shell for work, but once I thought to pair it with an edgier jacket it instantly felt more modern and weekend appropriate. Once the cooler weather settles in, I'll switch out the heels for boots. And I love that I can switch up this infinity scarf for a neutral look or play up the bold colorful print.

I've been a sucker for floral tops since the 80s.

I just can't break the habit, and apparently it's not happening any time soon. True to form when I saw this gem on the mannequin at Anthro I knew I had to scoop it up. I love that I can play up the feminine detail or add some edginess with a leather jacket. Before it gets too cool, I wanted to pair this top with my favorite wedges. These fringe sandals have taken me from Cincinnati to Florida and now are making their mark in Chicago. But with fall definitely in fall swing, it's almost time to pack them away until next year.

So it's been a little while. Again. If you follow me on instagram, you know I moved back in July. And well if you don't follow me SURPRISE! I'm now a Chicago resident.

Between moving, starting a new role at work {hence the move}, and traveling there hasn't been a whole lot time for the blog. In fact when I was preparing for the move, I wasn't sure if I was going to keep blogging. But what do you know...after a few months away, I miss it. I miss you. So I'm back!

Despite my best efforts to start dressing for fall, the weather here in Chicago hasn't been too cooperative. But the great thing about this plaid top is that it has that fall feel with a breeziness that works when it's still feeling more like summer. Yep it was 80 degrees here today. But on the bright side I hear the 60s are on the horizon. Cross your fingers because I have a lot of fall clothes that are ready to be worn.

I've been living in this outfit. From brunch, to trunk shows, this outfit has been a workhorse in every sense of the word. This Swing Tee from Old Navy is the real star. I love the length, fit, and it's easy to wear. Throw on a jacket or a fun necklace and you've got an easy carefree look.

An army green necklace and this Tribal Tassel necklace have been the winning combo for me. But I can easily see pairing this with black jeans and a leather jacket. Or styling it for work by blousing the top a bit.

How would you style this top?

Is there anything better than an easy to wear spring dress? I picked up this dress while shopping with the #threadcincy gals at Cincinnati Premium Outlets last weekend. Despite a rainy shopping day, we all scored fantastic spring looks thanks to Simon Outlets.

I can see this dress being a closet workhorse. I could dress it up for work with a blazer. Enjoy a Reds game on a summer day. Pack it for a long weekend trip. Endless possibilities. And we talk about these shoes for a minute? I've been drawn to all thing cognac lately. That's not revolutionary statement, but it's true. 

Simon Premium Outlets also wants to treat our readers with a $50 gift card to giveaway. To enter, use the Rafflecopter below for a chance to win 1 of 7 gift cards. The gift cards can be used at any Simon Outlet location, but if you're in Cincinnati you definitely want to check out the outlets in Monroe. Winners will be announced Saturday on our Facebook page.
