This is the blue twin sister to my citron midi skirt in my last outfit post.  As you may be able to see, I have a weakness for cobalt (among many other things), and I just couldn’t say no to having this blue beauty in my closet.

#FromWhereIStand: Chicago Edition

Crazy Style Love

 

If you follow along on Instagram, you may have seen that I spent this past Easter weekend in Chicago with my family.  My parents and I have a long standing tradition of traveling to the Windy City every year for Easter.  It’s always a fun weekend full of shopping, relaxing and eating.

 

When I was looking back at my photos from our trip, I realized that most of the pictures were of interesting textures, colors and signs, all on the ground.  One of my favorite Instagram hashtags is #fromwhereistand, and you’ve probably noticed that I tend to take a lot of those types of pics.  So I thought it would be fun to put them all together in one post and share them with you.  I hope you enjoy.

Such amazing colors and textures at the new Alice & Olivia store on the Magnificent Mile.  There is so much to look at in that store, that I only noticed this amazing light fixture in the reflection of this mirrored table when I went to take this photo.

Top: 424 Fifth (c/o). Skirt: 424 Fifth (c/o). Necklace: Tenley Rowe. Shoes: Nine West. Handbag: Coach (similar). Sunglasses: Gucci.

 

This is the skirt that started it all.  “It all” referring to my love affair for 424 Fifth.  I saw this gorgeous citron midi skirt in their lookbook back in January and had been dreaming about it ever since.  It recently hit stores, and I made sure to be first in line to snag it.

 

The material is beautiful.  It almost feels like taffeta which makes it seem like a fun party skirt that is still day appropriate.  I’m 5’2″ but hemmed this skirt by 3″, which makes it a great length for those lucky tall ladies who want a midi style.  I am so obsessed with this stunning skirt that I also selected it in a fabulous cobalt blue (courtesy of 424 Fifth), then went back the next day and purchased it myself in a soft shade of ivory.  I hemmed the blue version, but left the ivory at the original length to change it up.  You definitely be seeing a lot of these skirts on the blog in the future.
