On Friday, Eric and I went to Blackbird, a restaurant here in Chicago known for its innovative food and sleek interiors.  I’m all about dressing for the occasion so I paired a no-fuss, peplum top with simple, ultra-dark denim.  Blackbird showcases a very modern and mostly white interior with dark accents; I felt as if I had been plucked straight from the interior!  Now, speaking of coordinated dressing, what should I wear to the aquarium with my nephews next weekend?  Probably aqua socks.


  1. Gorgeous! I love how classic and elegant you look. In a trend-saturated blogosphere, an ensemble like this is very refreshing and understatedly stylish!

    Have a great Monday πŸ™‚

  2. The speaking advertisement you have put on your blog is beyond annoying. I have NEVER seen any other blog that does this. Sadly, I won't visit again because of this need for $$.

  3. hi @Caitlin – the TopShop shoes are a bit uncomfortable. They're definitely not dancing shoes but I can handle going out for a bit in them!
    hi @erika – the top is recent! Just bought it last week.
    hi @anon – care to tell me what advertisement you speak of? I only have two and am not aware of any that use sound. thanks.

  4. Those skinnies with the peplum top make for a super flattering outfit on you. Lovin' the KW DeepFreeze glasses on you as well, I have the same ones πŸ˜‰

  5. Find it wonderful that you dressed for the location…thought I was the only one who thought about crazy things like that! Your outfit is the epitome of class and sophistication, so simple but structured and accessorized beautifully. Love the peplum top!
