Elie Tahari + Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue Spring Fashion Show

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.

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.

Here are a few pics of us having some Photo Booth fun:

Tom’s 50th birthday was all that and a bag of chips! Thanks to our amazing friends and family for making this milestone so special. The cake almost burned the house down with all those candles 😉 but we survived! Happy birthday to my @tom_sandberg! Love you! You didn’t peak in the 90’s you’re still out here getting cuter! ❤️ #birthdayparty #90sparty

Friday mood…
Join me while I gather eggs and check what’s growing in my veggie garden🪴 🐓 Veggie update: Currently my zucchini is slowing down (praise the Lord! 🙏🏾)Tomatoes are slowly but surely ripening, I have a bed of sweet potatoes and yellow onion, and some butternut squash, eggplant, and bell peppers, and one pumpkin so far! Cucumbers had a moment early summer but seem to be done now. I also tried to do grapes but they were a fail. Every year in the garden is an experiment and a learning experience! #veggiegarden #chickencoop
I like big blooms and I cannot lie! 🌸 🥰 #hydrangeas
Ratatouille with a side of air fryer chicken and some crusty bread 🤌🏾 I called it ‘lazy girl’ Ratatouille but ‘busy girl’ would have been more accurate - because you save a lot of time by cooking the eggplant, zucchini, and peppers separately. Easy, fast, and fresh - give it a try! #dinnerideas
5 years old and already way too cool for mommy!
