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.

Here are some of my current favorites:

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.

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
