Fashion Shannyn-igans: Roaming Around Chicago (& giveaway!)

May 14, 2012

I <3 Chicago when the weather gets nice.  The neighborhoods just call to be explored, the cupcakes practically beg to be eaten, and retailers quietly call you inside to check out their colorful new springtime wares and dazzle you with their delicious new shoe designs- it’s a good time to be alive!

I’ve been experimenting with new restaurants, new walking paths and trying new styles and brands of clothes to mix things up a bit…here are some of my adventures and musings!

Chicago Fashion

Just discovered the best wonton soup in Chicago & the fortune cookies are a win!  /  Margarita cupcakes on Cinco De Mayo? YES PLEASE!!  /  My dream is to own my own scooter…perhaps with a pug friendly sidecar? Or not.

Chicago Fashion

You are the apple of my eye @ Urban Outfitters  /  Just discovered John Fluevog Shoes and am in love. These heels look like those faux granite composite countertops, gorgeous in person!  / Celebrating graduation with a cold one  /  Some of the sweet cards I got for graduation, thanks everyone, it meant so much!

Divinity is close by in Chicago / Trying on shades @ Urban w/ Carolina / My new Christian LouBoutins that I saved up for for practically eons to buy… I love them and yes, want to marry them.  haha!

My new blazer & top from ellelaurie

My Outfit- Blazer & Top c/o ellelauri  / Dark Wash Trouser Jeans- Target  /  Taupe Flats & Wide Belt- Urban Outfitters

I was so excited to wear out my new outfit from ellelauri-  I got to try their awesome Whitney Blazer {$202}  &  Madeline Top {$62}.   I’ve had a hard time finding blazers that fit in the past, they’re either too bulky or look odd on busty figures- but this blazer fit like a dream!  The blazer is NOT lined and is made of a windbreaker-esque material, it’s your best bet if you want to wear a blazer on a humid summer day without feeling stuffy.

The Madeline Top also comes in a ton of colors-  coral, cobalt, cranberry, plum, buttercup.  It looked great under the blazer and is the perfect neutral piece.  I felt like a million bucks in this outfit that was classy enough for a day out, but not too dressy for a shopping break at our favorite pizza place!

You are going to LOVE the Whitney Blazer from ellelauri-  they’re graciously giving one lucky winner their very own!

      Hey Di, thanks for stopping by! Thanks so much for the kind words and yes the Loubous steal my heart…I never thought I’d spend that much on shoes but after saving up for awhile, they’re my favorite pair!

    I would love to have a blazer that’s so light weight. I like in DC, so its pretty gross to have to wear a jacket in the heat and humidity of summer.

  4. Stephanie says:

    That blazer is really cute and would be perfect in the heat and humidity here in New Orleans.

  5. Andrea says:

    I’m loving that blazer! I need to look into getting one for work. It’s a fashionable/practical option for when it gets to be about a million degrees during the summer in Atlanta.

  6. I love this blazer! it is so pretty, and would be perfect for the weather these days!

  7. Liz Rice says:
