Summer has sort of slipped away and aside from typical excuses for my absence (photographer was out of town, lack of time, lack of patience), well - I'm gonna say it - I didn't really feel like blogging. Life was happening and I was living it; not pausing for an outfit post in front of my beloved brick wall.
So after my six-week hiatus, I learned something. This blog needs to work for me. Not the other way around. And interestingly enough, in these six weeks my style has evolved a bit. I cherish simplicity. Basics are my best friends and uncomplicated clothes are fun to me. Less trendy, more classic. Okay, sometimes a little trendy.
I now own a Joie tee and thanks to my friend Anj, I pronounce the brand correctly. It's Jo-wah, soft j. I practically live in these jorts and these Sam Edelmans. Oh, and outerwear. Because apparently Chicago forgot how to do summer.
