Style Session: Black & White City Chic

One of my favorite things about Chicago is how easy it is to get around on foot! Whether you are smack dab in the middle of downtown or live in one of the awesome Chicago neighborhoods, it's an amazing walking city. Now that the weather is getting nicer, I'm all about walking to everything I can...food, shopping, you name it! And being a woman on the-go-around this awesome city, requires a perfectly chic ensemble.


I'm a sucker for black and white. It's just a color palate that you can't go wrong with. I wanted to rock a black and white outfit, but spice it up by adding some edge. My gold accessories and patterned top did the trick! 


I am obsessed with this "Barcelona Top" from Express. This particular pattern isn't available online anymore, but it is still currently in stores. The top comes in 10 solid colors and a large variety of pattern options. The best part?? It's reversible!! This particular top is white with black spatter, and the reverse side is black with white splatter. 


I'm super crushing on these black pleated shorts from J.Crew Factory! They are currently on major sale and come in 3 colors; so snag them up! I recently purchased a ton of shorts from J.Crew Factory because a lot of my shorts were...short. It's really hard when you are in your mid twenties to find some great shorts that aren't "super young" (aka waaaaay too short to the point that it's distasteful), but also are't "old lady" shorts that are way too conservative. J.Crew Factory and Loft have some perfectly chic shorts options right now that really satisfy that middle ground of fashionable (but not provocative) shorts.


If you need me, you can find me walking around the city that I love! Just look for the giant grin and flash of red hair, you can't miss me!
