First off, if you entered the Helen Ficalora giveaway, thank you so much! I have contacted the winners on both Instagram and here on the blog. I have a couple of great giveaways coming up so please check back often!
Today I’m a little sad because it is the last Blogger Nation collaboration post, we are featuring our favorite Neutral pieces from Lulus. Lulus is an online boutique that has a wide-range of really trendy affordable pieces. They feature both emerging designers as well as established global brands.
I had so much fun coming up with outfits and working with these fabulous ladies for the past six weeks. We have plans to do more of these in the future so I’ll just have to patiently wait until then! Check out everyone’s look in greater detail by clicking on the link under their pictures.
For my look, I felt there is nothing more neutral and classic than black slacks, and I fell in love with the high-waisted ankle grazing style of these. I love how they just whittle the waist, and just skim the legs. I paired with a denim top with a patchwork detail – I love how it just slightly elevates your traditional denim top. The slightly worn in faded detail is my favorite and I would wear this with white denim and sandals for a day time summer look. Both of these neutrals paired together make for the perfect outfit for either work, dinner, or an evening out. I ended up wearing it for another date night dinner – we have been getting really good about making time for date night lately and I am finally realizing just how important that is!Thanks for visiting and have a great week xx
Elie Tahari made a special appearance at Neiman Marcus Chicago, for a small fashion presentation of his Spring line. I was, of course, beyond excited to meet the designer because I have been a long time fan and consumer of his clothing. He was so sweet and even complimented my shoes which pretty much made my day.
Here’s an instagram pic of us having a little fun after the interview:My outfit: Fringe vest by Elie Tahari | Pants: Trouve | Shoes: Zara (not pictured)
This season’s theme is “shipwrecked/high-tech/sun bleached” so think frayed/fringed edges, weathered materials, and colors that you would find in nature. Suede is also making a big appearance for Spring, in much lighter forms like fringe. I especially loved the mesh, neoprene, and leather fabrics used and mixed together to make for a cool sporty and slightly edgy touch to pieces that are instant classics. I’m wearing one of my favorite pieces, this fringe vest which is available in store at Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue.
Also launched this season, a sport line that is all about luxurious pieces you can wear anywhere. He calls it “washed cashmere”, where it is both comfortable and elegant. It is more about having movement than it is just being comfortable for the sake of comfort.

What’s next for Elie Tahari? He just launched an eyewear line and has plans for tabletop – China and Stemware- in the very near future.

For Spring I love to replace my go to black leather jacket with a lightweight motorcycle jacket in a pretty color like blush pink, baby blue, or heather grey – and this one has the softest buttery leather feel for a faux leather jacket. It was the perfect accent to my all white ensemble I wore for a beautiful day out in Chicago. Since those kinds of days are few and far between lately, I had to get outside and appreciate it fully. White is always a risky sartorial move for a mom but I love wearing it so much, I’ve just had to become best friends with a bottle of bleach.
