Stepping into Fall and Winter doesn't mean our shoes have to be drab like the weather.

There's something about a fun pair of heels, boots or flats that can put pep into your step even when the weather isn't so happy. I found some shoes that are sure to put a smile on your face with fun prints, embellishments and sparkle! As statement shoes, you are sure to get compliments!

The best part?

They are all under $44! I'm serious. This is not a joke. 

Each pick can be paired with casual day wear and transitioned easily to a fancy night out. So get clicking below and bring some sparkle & fun to your outfits!

Fall/Winter has hit Chicagoland. Fall was pretty much skipped over and it's been feeling like winter. But this past Sunday, the day was sunny and beautiful! I made the most of it by enjoying a champagne brunch cruise with Odyssey Chicago Cruises.

The cruise was the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon with good company and a sea of unending delicious food and drinks. Who doesn't love an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet? And you can order a premium bar ticket for endless drinks too! It definitely led to a happy post-Sunday afternoon food coma and nap.

And you can bet that the view was unbeatable! I will never tire of Chicago's skyline beauty & all of its Instagram-worthiness.

So, how do you get yourself aboard one of these magical cruises? You can find available cruises and reserve your tickets ahead of time on the Odyssey Cruises website. Be sure to reserve quickly, because these cruises sell out! Then, on the day you set sail, you head to Navy Pier and pick up your tickets at the Odyssey booth by the ship.

When you board the cruise ship, you will be greeted by the friendliest crew members. It's a quick boarding process and once you get on the ship, you will be seated at your table. At the center of the dining room are heaps of food on the buffet tables. Shown below is just one of the tables. There is a carving station and hot breakfast and lunch items on the other tables.

Everyone gets a complimentary mimosa to enjoy upon boarding. You're also welcome to order other drinks. We tried a few, and they're all so yummy! As I mentioned above, you can get premium bar tickets when you reserve your cruise. It's definitely worth it if you plan to enjoy a few drinks.

While it's easy to spend the entire time feasting on all of the food. You have to step outside to the top docks to enjoy the view. Even if it's chilly out, you should try to bundle up and brave the cold. I've always loved enjoying the Chicago skyline on Lake Michigan. It's so beautiful!

Then, you can head back inside and polish off a plate or two of dessert. If you're celebrating something, they do an incredible job of making you feel special. They make sure to bring out a plate of dessert topped off with a candle.

It was sad to dock back at Navy Pier and say goodbye to the best brunch cruise experience! The crew members were so kind and were always checking to make sure we had everything we needed. We left with happy stomachs and the promise of returning! I'm definitely taking my Chicago visitors on an Odyssey Cruise!

Chicago cannot seem to make up its mind about this weather. I'm not complaining since I love Summer and Fall weather. But how do you dress for it?

Maxi skirts are one of my favorite options. They are breezy, but also cover up enough skin to provide warmth if it cools down.

I'm loving this beautiful floral, tiered, maxi skirt from SheIn. It's only $15! And it pairs easily with a tank top or tee. You can also tuck in a sweater when the weather cools off. To take it from day to night, you can add a leather jacket when the air gets cooler at night.

Sweater weather is quickly approaching! And I am excited to watch the colors around us change. Second to seeing flowers bloom everywhere, I love watching the trees paint the world with fiery reds, oranges and yellow.

Who else loves putting on a cozy sweater for those nights in or casual dinners? I found some cute and unique sweaters from SheIn that can take you from day to night. Some can even pass for those fancy dinners and events! The best part is that they are all under $30! Click through to browse and shop!
