A good outfit that works for the office and for going out is like a Holy Grail that I work so hard to find. So when this skirt was on sale at J.Crew Factory for damn near 50% off and I got these earrings in from ILYMIX, I knew I was set. This look is perfect to wear to work and then take straight out to drinks with friends!
The earrings might be my favorite part, too. Remember those posts back in Feb & March about ILYMIX and getting 20% off your order? That code still works. So go to http://www.ilymix.com and use code “stile20” at checkout and you get 20% off! I can solidly say, having a ton of their stuff, that it’s all wonderful!
I’m also just obsessed with this skirt right now. It’s a faux wrap skirt, so I don’t actually have to wrap it. It zips up the back! But the knot detail on the side and the whole pattern is just stunning. I love it so much!

I think my favorite part about summer is all the parties that spring up. Indoor parties are fun and stuff but outdoor parties with chilly wine, barbecue food, bonfires, and bare feet in the grass? Those are my JAM! And my favorite way to dress for those is with a maxi dress to keep the breezes flowing and a big floppy hat to keep the sun off my face.
So when my triplet cousins had their high school graduation party, you know what I reached for! We had a great time celebrating this huge mile stone for all three of them, toasting them going off to college, petting SO MANY dogs, and enjoying the weather.

Summer evenings require something fruity and refreshing to beat the heat and keep things interesting. This cocktail does just that. With fresh summer berries, refreshing tangy orange juice, and Kraken Black Spiced Rum, you’re in for a sweet sumer party.
- Blackberries- 4 per drink (or more if you’re feeling extra fruity)
- 1 shot of your favorite spiced rum
- orange juice
Start with your blackberries. Drop three into each glass and muddle them into a juicy pulpy mess.
Add ice cubes for extra chill
Pour one shot of your spiced rum. I use Kraken Black Spiced Rum. It’s absolutely my favorite and we always have a bottle of it around. We keep ours in the freezer so it’s always extra chilly. It makes the bottle look all frosty and cool when it comes out, too.
Finally, add your orange juice, stir, and top with one last blackberry for garnish. This would be wonderful with a few leaves of mint as well.
Kick back, relax, and enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
–disclaimer– this is NOT a sponsored post. Kraken is just my favorite rum.

It’s time for another [very long overdue] Inspiration Series post! I got so caught up in taking photos and prepping other posts that I kind of forgot about this series. Whoops! Well, it’s back with Summer Style. These are just a few snaps I found on Tumblr of stuff I’m loving this season. From bikinis to shorts and everything in between. I am READY for this hot weather.
What are your favorite styles this summer? Share them in the comments!

This is the first installment in my new Inspiration Series. Every Thursday, get a post filled with images meant to inspire!
Ughh! Let me tell you how cold it is right now. When I left this morning, it was -8. When I got to work it was -4. And that’s without the wind chill from the wall of moving air coming off the Lake right now. I need warm thoughts to get me through this! Just think, though. The first day of spring is nearly a month away! That’s gotta count for something, right?
So in the meantime, curl up with a cuppa and enjoy these warm thoughts of beaches, Chicago in the summer, and some awesome summer activities.
