Surrounded by Local Art

LOFT cardigan and blouse | Stile.Foto.Cibo

I love finding hidden gems and local art, especially when it’s right around places I frequent all the time. This amazing wall is right in Andersonville across from one of my favorite coffee shops! I hadn’t noticed it at all until another blogger included this wall in a list of great walls to photo in front of. So of course I had to go take photos right away!

This cardigan is an absolute favorite of mine as of late. It’s super soft, nice and warm, and is neutral with a nice unexpected element in the horizontal stripes around the bottom so it’s great for work.

In other news, I have a super awesome deal for you guys! I’ve partnered with the Refuge Theatre Project this year. That means you guys get discounts to their shows. The Refuge Theatre Project strives to utilize the appeal of musical theatre to foster a broader and more accessible theatre community. They take everything that is awesome about musical theatre and make it smaller, more local, and more engaging.

What do I have for you guys? $5 off tickets to their next production, High Fidelity! The show runs Friday, Saturday, and Sundays from January 29th through February 28th. This link will take you right to the ticket page and put in the discount code for you. But just in case, it’s “ChiBlog.”

“Rob’s girlfriend has left him, and although the split does not make his list of top-five breakups, he is determined to find out what he did to sour the relationship.”

With it’s BYOB policy and the Wicker Park vibe, Refuge Theatre Project’s season opener is not to be missed!

Greenscale – Late Spring Haul

Target purse

Chicago is finally starting to behave warmly!


Took it long enough… And then, of course, after a week of nice warm days, we get mid-50’s and rain for the Mudderella. Let me tell you how chilly THAT was.

But all is not lost! The change of weather and new job warranted a little bit of a haul to get my wardrobe up to speed. Haul included stuff from all over but mostly Forever 21. Because, let’s be real, they’re actually pretty great.Full list of everything at the bottom of this post. Pictured are my favorites!

What are some of your new favorite pieces for the season?

Flash sales are a dangerous thing for me. Ann Taylor Loft had one this past weekend and I caved and got this blouse (It’s still on sale!). It is hands down the best purchase I have made in a long time. It’s lightweight, classic with a twist, and matches so much in my wardrobe. I’m thinking of doing a series of posts styling it three different ways. Thoughts?
