Peaked My Pinterest: Leather Leggings Style

I love leather - jackets, purses, pants, you name it. I bought this pair of leather leggings at Express after Thanksgiving and they have been a staple in my wardrobe ever since. They fit like a glove and look great with everything from a flowing blouse to a casual t-shirt.

Do you have a unique way to style leather leggings and transition them into Spring?

Because We Attended the Silver Jeans Grand Opening! (Part 2)

Yesterday you saw photos from the Silver Jeans Co. grand opening at Woodfield Mall. Here is what we wore to the event:

Kaitlyn: This was a rare day where the sun was out and it reached 70's so I went with a breezy blouse, my favorite distressed denim and flats. I think I was inspired by weather to mix bright gold and royal blue and my husband even told me, "you look like the sun." I definitely took this as a compliment :)

Top: Loft // Jeans: Old Navy // Bag: Just Fab (swap w/Lisa) // Flats: Target // Necklace: ℅ It's a Bling Thing 

Lisa: I decided I wanted to keep it comfortable and chic and found myself in my favorite peplum from last year. Rolled up my denim, added my favorite plaid flats, a great hot pink lip, and I was good to go!

I am so in love with this necklace right now.
It is super light weight and I think the length is just perfect for some many different outfits and tops.

Because We Attended the Silver Jeans Grand Opening!

We recently attended the Silver Jeans Co. Grand Opening at Woodfield Mall! Our friend and fellow blogger Zahra was hosting the event so we were excited to stop by, try on some jeans and let's be honest, do some Spring shopping…Is there anything that mall doesn't have?

Over the past two decades, Silver Jeans Co. has become a go-to brand for those who demand a perfect fit from their jeans. The brand is a time-tested collection that blends modern and vintage details with intricate washes and creative designs. Their unique fit system allows you to find a pair that is just right for your frame -- We both ended up with the "Suki" style, good for well-designed curves ;)

Here are some shots of the new store:

Thanks for having us, Zahra! Xo

Rocked it & Swapped it

A great v-neck knit can be styled many ways from fall to spring. After seeing how Kaitlyn styled her Loft top at the lake house, I decided I couldn't stray from her look too much because I loved what she did with it. 

When I wore the knit, I added a tall boot and some spring colored accessories, but kept the look very similar. This knit is lightweight enough to be styled with white jeans and flats or shorts and a sandal for a chilly spring night.

How would you re-style this look for warmer temps?

Because Kaitlyn Loves Running

I have always led an active lifestyle starting with ballet as a toddler (I think it was more about wearing the tutu’s), then turning to soccer (where I realized I’m better with hand-eye coordination) and finally finding my talent on the basketball court. I played through Junior year of high school when I finally got fed up with the coach who made sure it was no longer fun to play.

Post high school, I developed a love for running, especially outside on a gorgeous day but because those are rare here in Chicago, I have forced myself to find joy in my time on the treadmill – my favorite TV show or the right playlist is a huge help, but it’s also my only time alone during the day where I can de-stress. I feel 100x time better if I’ve done something fitness related whether it’s a long run, walking with my husband or a strength class like Body Pump – somehow, an hour of sweating just makes the entire day seem better.

This Kingston pullover from Fabletics has become part of the regular rotation in my workout attire. It's lightweight but also has the cowl neck that I can unfold and wear to cover my neck when the wind picks up. Plus, it's my favorite color so it's a win/win. 

Pullover: Fabletics // Pants: JC Penney // Shoes: Nike // Insulated Thermos: Hydroflask // Hat: US Open
T-Shirt: Forever 21 // Sunglasses: Old Navy


What is your workout of choice?

Because Lisa Loves Nashville (Part 2)

I am still going through Nashville withdrawal! Seriously. I miss the smells, I miss the polite people, I miss the live music all day long, I miss the girls everyday!

This day it was sunny, I'm talking not a cloud in the sky and 62 degrees. I was in heaven. This was officially the first time I wore shorts and was actually warm. It was bliss!

Prior to Nashville I had never worn cowboy boots. I got these from Just Fab specifically for the trip thinking I'd never actually wear them again, but I haven't taken them off since I've gotten home. I think I have a little country in me after all! ;)

I have always been a big fan of mixing neons and neutrals, but add some cowboy boots and a fringe bag and I love it even more!

What do you think of this neon and neutral look?

Have you ever been to Nashville during the Tin Pan South music festival?
