Welcome to a new week everyone! Mondays are always so refreshing to me - like the past week has somehow disappeared and a fresh new start has manifested itself. Fresh starts also come about in new 
cities or in the case of this post - a new hotel! What makes you feel like you have a fresh start? I feel everyday should be seen as a crisp new day to not dwell on yesterday's disappointments, but focus on the successes that further fuel one's drive to pursue their passions in life. I feel that way, but it's easier said than done, am I right?

I had a major Gossip Girl moment while staying at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago (Hello, Blair Waldorf anyone?). Pulling up to the Waldorf was like arriving at an English manor placed in the middle of a bustling city. It was magical. The decor was so up my alley. The minimalist, clean, fresh, and modern with a historic twist appearance of the whole hotel inside and out could make anyone that stepped foot within the revolving doors feel like absolute royalty. I felt so prim and proper, which is why this whimsical outfit was my first go-to as I explored this windy city wonder.

Badgley Mischka clothing is what I dream about. From shoes, to skirts, to dresses, to swimwear, it's all just so pretty. Their bridal collection makes me want to get married on the spot every time I see it. This matching top and full skirt set is the prettiest shade of purple and so very Taylor Swift BTS (Before The Sass). Circa "We Are Never Getting Back Together" single. 

This set was very intricately detailed with its pattern, so I wanted to keep my accessories and shoes as a minimum eye catcher. That was a little hard seeming that this pair of gorgeous Astoria Crystal Studs from The Shopping Bag are so feminine and lovely. The sparkle they added to this outfit was just enough, and it was a touch that made me feel like I was ready to go to any garden party being held at exactly that moment. I loved how they matched the chandelier in the lobby of the hotel. Did you know the chandelier was modeled after Coco Chanel's brooch? ...And you wonder why I could not love this hotel more?! 

I've noticed that these sort of minimalistic strappy heels are all the rage now, so when I saw this nude pair from Nine West, I instantly had to snatch them up! I'm on the hunt for a really good pair of classic nude heels, a forever pair, you know? If you have a good brand that I could get them at, please tweet me @SInsideMyCloset with your suggestions!

I wanted to keep my make up to a minimum as well, so I went with my trusty and life long favorite YSL products - especially my new lipstick which I just happened to pick up from Bloomingdale's in Chicago!

Before I say farewell, I just want to have a little LOL moment at my windy skirt pictures. Literally, I felt like Marilyn Monroe... Waldorf style. I can't pull off her flawless face though, as the windy city really brought the wind! 

See you Thursday!

Simply Stylist Chicago | Celebrity Style Match

What a weekend! I am still reliving the fantastic time that I had at Simply Stylist in Chicago at The Dana Hotel! I was so delighted to meet so many fellow bloggers and major fashion world influencers. It was a 
terrific learning experience and a great way to meet influencers in fashion and beauty that I definitely look up to! Seriously, meeting Marcellas Reynolds, Catt Salder of E! News, Jacey Duprie from Damsel in Dior, and Corri McFadden of e-Dropoff was a dream come true! 

The panel consisted of the fabulous Sazan Barzani, Jacey Duprie, Corri McFadden, and Joey Maalouf. They each had so many great tips on how to nurture your passion so that it blooms into something amazing. Their stories of their successes and failures and how they worked through it made me laugh, smile, and feel inspired. I definitely left the panel feeling extremely motivated to get Step Inside My Closet to its fullest potential.

Before the panel was a yummy brunch to start of the day meeting new people and after the panel was a party at which networking with others was taken to the next level! I'm glad I got the chance to introduce myself to the panelists, Sarah Boyd, the creator of Simply Stylist, and other bloggers!

As a fashion blogger attending a fashion event, I wanted to put a lot of thought into what I was wearing. Currently, I'm taking a lot of fashion cues from Taylor Swift, and was overjoyed when I found one of her concert looks that I could afford to wear! While giving a performance at Le Grand Journal last October, Taylor wore this matching crop top and skirt set from RVN. It's a totally minimalistic and cute set that is extremely comfortable. While she wore the blue hued set, I gravitated towards the black and white set. This look is so trendy and I definitely want to wear something similar when I see Taylor Swift live on her 1989 tour!

Heels. They are a fashionista and most importantly a short girl's best friend. For this five foot fashionista, a classic set of pumps is all I desire. This darling pair of black pumps is Proto by Steve Madden. They are so comfortable and so versatile. From day to night, you can bet these will be on my feet 24/7.

To carry all my goodies I brought my Loeffler Randall black bag which, you might think is small - but it holds so much! It held my cute bulky items like my Eat Cake For Breakfast pink Kate Spade notebook and matching Eat Cake For Breakfast iPhone case (which came in handy for the insane amount of Instagrams I was posting! @StepInsideMyCloset!)

Did you go to the Simply Stylist conference? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments below!

Instagram Recap | June

Leave a Comment
Step Inside My Closet, Instagram Recap, The Shopping Bag, Kayla Itsines, Bikini Body Guides, Alexa Chung, Jessica Simpson, A Cup Of Quotes, summer, love wins, equality, Nine West,

Oh, what a month this has been! While we all get our red, white, and blue outfits prepared for the July 4th weekend ahead, I wanted to reflect on my first summer month...through Instagrams. Below are a few of my favorite snaps from this past month! 

1. Workout time! If you have followed me for awhile you would know that I am very passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle. Currently I am in the process of completing Kayla Itsines' Bikini Body Guides. Finding her and her foam roller was the best thing to come across for my workouts. I was lucky enough to have this Instagram reposted by Kayla as well! Whoo! #KaylaMovement!

2. Queen City Style! This post is kind of different from the other outfit posts that I have shared on  my blog. Part of it is because I welcomed you into glimpse of my favorite city in my home state of Ohio. My favorite part of this look was the necklace from The Shopping Bag!

3. #Shoestagram. You know me and my shoes, we are a love that will never falter. These shoes two toned Nine West heels upgraded my whole Father's Day classic ensemble!

4. Beanie! I can't go too long without posting about my French Bulldog, Bean! This throwback photo had me reminiscing about her puppy days! She's been a diva since the moment we've met!

5. Eat (Cup)cakes for breakfast. After the Supreme Court decision, I think that everyone was in the mood to celebrate - so I did so with a sweet rainbow sprinkled cupcake!

6. My reading list is always changing, but this summer I had to reread Alexa Chung's book, IT. Her book is full of her fashion and beauty interests, and has really sparked some lovely ideas for me to change up an outfit or makeup look. Love!

7. I was not going to pass up the opportunity to celebrate national Sunglasses Day since I just bought a pair of Jessica Simpson cat eyed black sunglasses. These are so adorable and went perfectly with A Cup Of Quote's Meow Is The Time mug
