Memorial Day weekend was so fun, I got to go to the beach, died laughing at karaoke, and had a fabulous time at a BBQ! I think that means summer is finally here, which is the start of patios, beer gardens, and rooftops, this type of outfit is perfect for any of these summer activities! The jean shorts and sheer blouse give it a laid back vibe but the blazer and the shoes keep it smart. I always love mixing casual pieces with a more dressed up piece, it keeps things interesting, and that is what I think defines my personal style. Every person I meet says there is nothing better than summer in Chicago, so I am very much looking forward to this! I cannot wait to share with you what is going on and obviously what I will be wearing!

bisous, Mack.

Fringe & Louboutins

This outfit with the background reminds me of something Carrie would wear in the Sex and the City episode when she goes to Aiden’s country house and she is in heels the entire time baking pies and breaking up fights between him and Mr. Big! I love the top and I am even in love with the similar one that I posted in the outfit details. It is perfect to go with the crop top trend but to not be horribly exposed, it is also an easy top to wear from day to night. I really like the idea of something so “free” like fringe paired with a blazer for structure. The pop of pink in the shoes adds a bit of femininity to the outfit, the crystalized python and six inch heels do not hurt either! Lastly, the necklace from Lionette is a must have in my opinion. It can totally transform an outfit, anything from jeans and a white t-shirt to a ball gown! So moral of this, do not be afraid to take a more “corporate” piece and pair it with something unexpected like fringe or a crop top. Just like in life, the free spirit compliments the person in a suit on the reg, and vice versa!

bisous, Mack.

P.S. I am all moved into my apartment in Chicago for my new job! I am so excited, but now I need to find a photographer in the area. If you live around Chicago and are interested, please message me using the contact form! Thank you. xx

 I always say I wish I could dress like a Saint Laurent Paris ad everyday, so I did my best with what I had in my closet. I am basically in head to toe Zara, which is strongly influenced by SLP. I love the spike details on the shoulder and near the wrists on the blazer, I got this piece about a year and a half ago and it shows making smart investments in unique pieces pays off. The pants have an amazing black floral detail and the draping is done wonderfully, here’s a similar, super cool pair from Topshop. I believe every woman should have a great pair of black pants and a properly tailored blazer in their closet, if you don’t have those get them for yourself for Christmas, you can thank me later. Take those two items and add either a white blouse, or in my case a tank top, a great pair of heels and voila! You’re inspired by SLP, and you will always be in style. This type of look is great for the holiday season, it is classy, sexy and something special other than a party dress. So pull back your hair, put on a bright red lip along with your new wardrobe staples and show yourself off wherever you may go!

bisous, Mack.

Los Angeles I have arrived! After a boozy Sunday funday, I spent Monday shopping on Melrose. The stores are amazing and it is impossible to leave without a little treasure, or at least some cool pictures of the art on the buildings. I headed to this part of town in my little denim shorts, an LA staple no matter what season, along with my favorite blazer. I love the neon details. You can definitely bring your summer neon pieces into fall and winter just be sure to pair them with neutrals to tone them down. The great thing about LA is there are no limits, it is a great city to try new things and find fashion inspiration. So I am off to do just that!

bisous, Mack.
