Recent Acquisitions

I'm back!  Before I post My Weekend in Pictures (and boy what a weekend it was) I thought I'd  share with you some of the summer wardrobe staples I've added to my closet over the past few weeks. Chicago summers always seem to fly by so I try to avoid spending a lot of money on clothes.  When planning my purchases for the season I decided to stick with basics that can be re-worn without being instantly recognizable.  I don't think any one of these items scream 2012 so hopefully I'll have them for many summers to come!

So I must ask, is there something you think I should add to my list? 

ONE I've only owned this dress for a week and I've already worn it three times / TWO I've been going topless and barefoot all summer / THREE a pair of perfectly imperfect jean shorts from Zara / FOUR a classic, dark charcoal bikini from J. Crew / FIVE  these Gucci shades may be my favorite purchase this summer  / SIX who doesn't love a little lace? / SEVEN turquoise jewelry is a summer must / EIGHT this light weight, basic black dress from madewell is perfect for summer days or nights


  1. I DESPERATELY need some amazing denim shorts! I lost mine, how I have no idea...

  2. I love all your choices esp that black dress from Madewell! Check out the Rag & Bone shorts I just bought--> one of my favorite purchases this summer and a total steal!

  3. love all of your new additions! especially the necklace.

  4. Yes, Chicago summers fly!! So sad. Live that cute bikini.
