Style Story: Woven Sunset


One of my favorite things to do is watch the sun set. While sunsets are beautiful at a beach on some tropical island, there's something spectacular about watching day turn to night in Chicago. The sky is shaded like woven colors on a tapestry. And the skyline basks in the glory of the sun making the skyscrapers glimmer in the light. It's a wonderful thing how God's creation shines light so seamlessly on man made creation to make it even more majestic.

Just like this woven skyscape, this Anthropologie top is my favorite because of its woven details that transform what would be an ordinary monochromic top, to an elegant statement piece.

Top: Anthropologie (similar) | Pants: Old Navy (similar) | Shoes: Payless (similar) | Necklace: Forever 21 (similar) | Bracelets: Chicwish, Tobi | Earrings: Forever 21

Five for Friday:

1. Favorite Listen
Joseph, a trio of sisters with voices of angels & talent that will give you chills. They just stopped by Chicago on their tour & they are the sweetest! Can't wait to see what their future has in store for them! Check their music out here.

2. Favorite Eat
I finally got a taste of Chicago's finest old fashioned donuts from Doughnut Vault! It was a complete chance encounter with their food truck in the West Loop and the best part? The was no hour-long line or any line whatsoever! Incredible. Scored the Pistachio & Buttermilk before they sold out. YUM.

3. Favorite Outfit
The best part of summer is the splashes of color everywhere. Especially my outfits. I seized the opportunity on my afternoon off to throw on happy colors & prints.

4. Favorite Laugh
Is anyone watching this season of the Bachelorette? Well, this compilation of clips will sum it up for you. Stahhpppp.

5. Favorite Inspiration
On Instagram, Sophia Bush posted these words of wisdom recently, "No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart."

Keep shining brighter and loving bigger! This world would be so much more beautiful if we just wove a bit more strands of love, grace and kindness into it.
