These are cab-to-curb heels…

… and this sweater and striped pant combo is the next best thing to pajamas in public.

… But first: *Get the Look:

Maybe it’s just me, but I swear we skipped a few months over the course of this calendar year. Wasn’t it just July? …And Thanksgiving is a week away from today?

(And real talk: How many times have you said that in your work emails this week? LOL, so guilty!)

We’ve only had a few weeks to enjoy a modest amount of fall foliage here in Chicago, so I’ve been taking full advantage — and giving my Uber bill a rest.

… Well, for the most part.

In full transparency, these are what I call cab-to-curb heels — they’re so damn cute it doesn’t even matter (and I love the nude style too).

Top: Leith wrap sweater (in seven colors)
Pants: Similar striped pants (also here)
Shoes: Schutz ‘Cendi’ transparent pumps (absolutely love the nude style too)
Sunnies: Quay ‘Lady Luck’ sunglasses (on clearance for $18 — bought the gold pair too!)

The darling dress I plan to wear year-round

With winter right around the corner, I’ve been treating every nice day in Chicago like it’s our last.

… Rightfully so. And on the style front, here’s how that translates.

Featured: Rachel Pally Crepe “Maeve” long-sleeve dress (on sale) Similar:

Hallie’s pick: Leith ruched long-sleeve dress (also on sale)

I snapped these photos last month (right after I purchased this pretty little number) — but much to my bare-legged delight October has boasted a few blue skies as well… I suppose it’s about time to stash the straw accessories, but the retro sunnies are here to stay.

(If you’ve been a reader for a while, you know I have an aversion to tights. I do everything avoid wearing ’em — they itch!)

While a fresh pair of sneakers is usually my go-to (always these or these), through November I plan to wear this long-sleeve dress with over-the-knee boots. On top, I’ll rotate between a textured faux fur coat and a structured moto jacket —  love this faux leather style.

It’s a simple concept with a *huge* impact.

I’ve felt such a huge release since opening up to you guys last week. Writing seems easier, for one — (yay!) — but ever since I hit “publish,” I’ve just felt a little lighter. Thank you so much for that.

I really missed you guys in that 30-day absence, but I’ve been blown away by the amount of people who have reached out to me with kindness and to vent/share similar stories and situations.

I’m still reading (and responding to) a lot of your notes, but this has been one of my favorite responses so far:

“When I share my story [about depression] it’s like a light has turned on and the other person sees that instead of being alone in a room there are a ton of other people standing right there with them.”

Girl. Wow, yes!

… So today I thought I’d share a few similar posts you might like. Plus, a little challenge (below, keep scrolling):

Little love notes: 15 Things to Remind Yourself (Today) | 8 Things I Do to Feel More Confident

Rising strong: How to Get Out of a Funk | How (and Why) to Feel Happy After a Tragic Event

Health & wellness: How I Lost 30+ Pounds (and Found Myself) | Getting Over My Half-Ass Habit

Get the look: Bandana | Tank | Jeans | Sandals | Sunnies

If you’re curious, the last few days have been comparatively great — and no, I haven’t spent them holed up in my apartment. (Well, not all of them at least. Ha!)

I’ve felt a lot lighter, sure — but I’ve been most surprised by how much more energetic I seem to be.

//

Though the occasional hermit lifestyle is relatively harmless, following through on things you told yourself (or others) that you’d do feels good. Energizing!

And the opposite is true when you put things off and don’t follow through on your shit… It’s exhausting. Know what I mean?

I used to talk about the concept of “20 seconds of courage” in my classes as a fitness teacher.

It’s a simple idea, really, and it could apply to anything — making a phone call, opening (and responding) to that e-mail, not hitting snooze, approaching someone at a bar, cleaning your bathroom… You name it.

The idea is to take risks or to slowly shift things off your plate — if the latter, ideally, the ones that feel heavier the longer you carry them around.

Adopting this simple concept could have a huge impact on your life. Think about it.

I’ve done this before in a number of ways — my SoulCycle audition way back when, for starters.That’s also how I came to be an adopted dog Mom. I said hi to Allie (Nika’s owner) in an elevator!

One time last year, I scribbled my phone number on a dinner receipt for my server one night — and we ended up dating for awhile! (I also wrote “PS: No Dietary Restrictions…”)

Feel free to steal that one — Lollll.

//

So if you’re trying to figure out a way to get “unstuck” in any part of your life — even if only for today — I’m here to tell you: Just do it. Take 20 seconds and fuckin’ do it.

Do do one thing that you’ve been putting off, feel afraid to, or that you’ve let weigh on you over time. Yes, even on the days when all you can do is sleep, Netflix, hide or hibernate — all you need is to be brave for 20 seconds.

Last Friday, for me, it was hitting publish on this post. And this video. Yesterday it was getting my ass out of the apartment period.

Last week, I made an overdue dentist appointment (and have since checked that off my list, #nocavitites).

The week prior, I’d sent a text telling someone how I felt — the stress of overanalyzing everything had been weighing on my heart, so I put it out there. (I am happy even though it wasn’t the outcome/reaction I thought I wanted in return!)

Again, the idea is to slowly shift the “heavy” things off your plate… Or to give in and let your gut guide you. It’s not all that scary, I promise.

//

For today, I’ll let my “20 seconds” come to me in the moment since I’ve got some in-person plans… I like to let them find me from time-to-time.

Leading up to those, I’ve simply resolved to worry less and rock a red lip. 

So if I may, friends, your “20 seconds” today should involve whatever it is that immediately came to mind as you read this.

What do you have to lose, after all?

Palm tree prints and pink pleats — yes, it works! Here’s why.

Some days I surprise myself — and others, I find my phone in the fridge.

… I know you know what I’m talking about!

My outfit today qualifies as one of those surprise-type days, so-to-speak. It’s not an ensemble you’d typically think to pair together, but it just works — for my taste, at least.

Those are the best type of mornings — and evenings, as a result. Since after work you aren’t coming home to shit thrown literally everywhere piles of clothes throughout your bedroom.

(Right? Too real!)

The reason it works is the black — the shoes, bag and skirt keep everything anchored. You agree or nah?

Quick links: similar skirt | similar crop top | Sunglasses (here in gold) | strappy sandals | Acrylic tote

Side-note: My top is by Red Carter — it’s sold out (sorry!), but the brand has a lot of cute styles available here — and here’s a handful of similar tie-front crop tops.

I’ve been busy planning some logistics for my sister’s bachelorette party in Miami later this month, which may have been the motivation behind this pink, palm-tree pairing.

I actually wore this skirt last time I was there, too — I loved the color-blocking in this outfit! We stayed at the Kimpton Surfcomber in Miami Beach, it had the cutest yellow chairs and overall pool set-up.

Of course, we spent a lot of time under those striped umbrellas along South Beach, too.

Oh, last thing. If you weren’t aware, my Miami Travel Guide is live!

… and not to the gym.

Come summertime — and festival season in particular (last weekend was Lolla!) — there’s nothing I love more than throwing on a fresh pair of sneakers with an ensemble you might not normally think to do so.

I love wearing my Nike’s with — well, just about anything; a colorful, cute dress, cozy sweatshirtjean shorts, you name it.

There’s just something chic about this laid-back look.

Remember last month when I styled an outfit from head-to-toe for under $200? It was in partnership with Kohl’s — here’s the link, if you missed it. (That boater hat is a must-have!)

Related: Challenge accepted: Head-to-toe under $200

///


Anywho, I’m back at it for Round Two with today’s style challenge:

Here’s two outfits I styled this month in partnership with Kohl’s: Showcasing chic ways to wear your favorite sneakers — and not to the gym.

Oh, and one quick note — everything I’m wearing is on sale!

///

Outfit #1: Sneakers with a dress Links: dress | jean jacket | sneakers | similar sunnies

I tend to forget that Kohl’s carries name-brand designers like Levi’s, Nike and more — all of which you’ll typically find for (a lot) less than you would elsewhere.

Did anyone else grow up shopping at Kohl’s? My mom, grandma and I would make the trip once a week after school for Senior Citizen Day — we stretched that discount far and wide. (More of that story here.)

Related: One dress, five ways

///

Here’s my second sneaker-featured ensemble:

///

Outfit #2: Sneakers and Shorts Links: sweatshirt (clearance) | shorts | sneakers | similar sunnies

Which look do you like the best?

Related: Off-the-shoulder dress and Stan Smith’s

Here’s a few more ways I’ve worn my sneakers with a dress — similarly with a sweater and jean shorts here and white jeans with a leather jacket here.

And lastly, my favorite (if I had to choose): This dress-and-sneaker combo has remained a repeat offender this summer.

//

*Outfits links — everything is on sale!

Outfit No. 1: Dress

 dress (clearance) | jean jacket | sneakers (on sale) | similar sunnies

Outfit No. 2: Sweatshirt, shorts

Outfit: sweatshirt (clearance) | shorts | sneakers (on sale) | similar sunnies

Yeah, you’d totally rock the crop top trend — or are you already?

All right, Monday. Let’s do this…

Get the look:

… OR let’s talk about the weekend and whatnot for a bit.

How was yours? Any good stories? Wink.

//

Not much here, but I’m happy to be reporting that.

It felt so good to slow down and spend downtime de la piscine on my end. The last week in particular was one of the busiest I’ve had in awhile, which you can read about in this post if you missed it.

(I hope you had a chance to do the same!)

I shared a snap of today’s ensemble (while at a friends’ uh-mah-zing rooftop pool) on Instagram and got a lot of questions about the bathing suit I’m wearing which — surprise! — is actually not a bathing suit.

Well, the high-waisted bottoms are; but up top is a separate off-the-shoulder situation. That brand is an Australian label called Suboo who ironically actually started out by selling beach umbrellas back in the day.

[Great story, Hallie.]

But I’m v into it. All of it.

The tasseltop is one I’ve been reaching for repetitively all summer. It’s perfect for the those “wanna look cute and get tan but I’m not getting in the water” days in particular.

Bless up, Suboo, for ultimately expanding into a full collection of pretty pieces.

Turn on your JavaScript to view content
 click above to browse  |||  or shop all suboo here.

Crop tops can be tricky to style/wear in general — more so when you’re not at the pool.

As general rule of thumb, I always wear something fully covers my belly button… And isn’t too tight.

Aim to off-set the proportions by covering up a bit on the bottom — even if that’s just via a high-waisted bikini bottom. I tend to stay far, far away from anything low-rise all-together.

Check these out:

//

I’d suggest trying a pair of high-waist white skinnies or even distressed denim with a boyfriend fit, like these — plus a pair of platform espadrilles or some simple, classic ankle-strap sandals ($49).

Easy enough, right?

Any other issues you run into that prevent you from trying out this trend? LMK in the comments, I got you!

** Get the look:

Crop top: Suboo ‘Playa’ off-the-shoulder
(here in a pretty polka dot print)

High-waist bikini bottoms: Becca
(only avail in black but similar here $15)

‘Veuve it or Lose It’ tote: Poolside Bags
(last season, current collection here –I die for THIS ONE!)

Straw hat*: (similar here under $50 and here under $20)
*Designed by my girl Julia from Lemon Stripes last summer

Circle retro sunnies: Ray-Ban ‘Icons’ 53 mm sunglasses

An easy ensemble: Shredded skinny jeans and slouchy shirt.

Outfit: top | jeans |shoes |bag | sunglasses | lip color

Every girl needs a pair of jeans in her closet that she can throw on with — well, anything else in her closet.

Any occasion, anywhere.

Related: How to Wear Wide-Leg Jeans

//

Lately, I’ve been rockin’ a pretty laid back, easygoing aesthetic — which would explain why these high-waist jeans have quickly become my go-to pair of denim… And the foundation for many outfits.

Weekdays or not, there’s no combination I’ve grown to love more than a pair of shredded skinny jeans and an easy top or tee. Topped off with a pair of pumps and you’re good to go.

Also:

Is it just me, or is it damn-near impossible to find a good pair of distressed denim?

I mean, not the worst problem to have, I know. The options among us are endless, it seems, but I’m talking about those just right ripped jeans.

//

Typically, I like mine to look a little more purposeful — like the ones I’m wearing or these Levi’s, but you really can’t go wrong with a more modest, classic pair of blue jean skinnies.

Here’s a few more of my favorites:

Turn on your JavaScript to view content

Where do you shop for denim? Do you have a pair of “just right” ripped jeans?

If not — or you’re in the market — I’d suggest Nordstrom, Shopbop, or ASOS; all retailers with free shipping and returns. More specifically, these brands: One Teaspoon, AG and BP by Nordstrom (lots on sale!). A few more of my favorites are here, here, here and here.

Blush colored top: Marrakesh cover-up
High-waist ripped jeans: One Teaspoon ‘Freebirds’ (similar here + I have these too, love them!)
