As Winter slowly, but surely makes it way out of Chicago and Spring creeps in, I’ve noticed something different: the return of color! I think I even saw a blue sky yesterday! Life changing, I tell you.
On that same note, here’s how we’ve been playing with color in the B house lately…
Icy or cobalt, I think it’s apparent that I’ve been on a blue streak. I like blue any time of year, but especially in the winter when a subtle hint of color is necessary to carry us into Spring…
What color are you loving right now?
I’m a sucker for a solid jacket or blazer.
Maybe because I’m always cold? The current temps and snow isn’t helping…
Maybe because they’re so easy to throw on to complete an outfit?
Whatever the reason, I’m in heaven right now as there are so many stylish options out there to get me through these dreary winter months, but also that can transition well into Spring. I am partial to IRO, Elizabeth & James and the Georgie line found at Intermix. They are all quality lines that rarely go out of style.
I picked up the burgundy E&J blazer this season and pair it with everything from bright cobalt to refined snakeskin patterns (cost per wear, cost per wear, cost per wear). I’m thinking the army green Georgie number would look great thrown over a tee and jeans for day and either a black or neutral dress for night. I know I have posted about the cobalt tweed IRO before, but I can’t stop thinking about it (and wouldn’t mind pairing it with black silk pants for The Hunt this weekend).
At the end of the day, this is Chicago and one can never own enough jackets. Ever.

Loving emerald as the new 2013 hue…
I’m clearly not attending an office holiday party of my own this year (unless you count the multiple chardonnay-infused evenings at the B house this month spent watching Christmas movies wearing reindeer pajamas - that is my idea of a holiday party!), but that doesn’t deter me from putting together what I would wear!
This LBD from Pleasure Doing Business is classic, but not too conservative and pairs well with either the black and white blazer for more of a menswear inspired look. The cobalt blue renders a twist on the traditional tweed jacket seen in many offices across this city (my former self can attest).
If only these refined looks came with a raise…
“Kicking” off the weekend with spicy Cuban cuisine and these hot, magenta suede pumps. Have a good one!
What to wear on Fall days when you wake up to 75 degrees, but may encounter rain and 40 degrees by the day’s end…sleeveless blouse, colored denim, a light jacket and loafers (always loafers! Preferably glittered…).
Some favorites from the new Intermix Fall look book. You can never go wrong with black and white in my opinion!
Really into this week:
