Once again Friday has arrived and we are all feeling a little bit of pep in our step around the Sandberg home. With the Cubs in the World Series I can’t help but feel the excitement in the air all around me. Admittedly I’m not a huge baseball fan, I will go to a game with the hubs who is a lifelong Cubs die-hard, but for me it is more for the socializing than anything else (plus who doesn’t love getting dressed up in cute sports gear? haha). Funny story – when Tom and I first started dating, he told me he was related to former Cubs all-star player Ryne Sandberg – it was his second cousin twice removed who stopped talking to the family after he got famous. I’m not sure if he was trying to impress me, because I had no clue who the guy was, but I didn’t think too much about it until many years later, when his name came up in conversation, I brought up the fact to a friend of ours, and T had to come clean and say he was joking. It is actually funny to think of all the things we do and say when we are trying to impress someone, but how quickly all of that stops once he puts a ring on it! It goes both ways too, girls you know we unleash the crazy only after we know he isn’t going anywhere!
About the look, today I’m partnering with online retailer StyleWe – they work with many independent designers for a really eclectic and well curated selection of clothes and accessories. I love that they give a platform for creatives to sell their designs on a large scale. If you are looking for high quality designs at a reasonable price point, I highly suggest checking out their website. Seriously when I was choosing what I wanted, I had the hardest time because there were so many pieces I liked. I ended up going with this two piece sweater and skirt set because I love the cozy feel, the gorgeous Autumn-appropriate color, and the fact that it is one size fits all. The skirt can actually be worn longer or shorter depending on how high you decide to wear the waist. I’d wear this styled with loafers as I’ve done here for brunch with friends, or dressed up with a statement necklace, long jacket, and mid-calf boots for an evening out.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend xx
