One of the privileges of working as a fashion blogger, is meeting and collaborating with some amazingly creative people. And through their creative lens, be it applying eye liner, a highlighter, or catching the Sam Edelman sandal beside the arch at that perfect angle during the noon sun, they make art. 
Kelly, photographer extraordinaire behind Kallison Photo, is one of these people. My favorite part of the day was hearing her shout out on a cold morning, “Yes yes yes!! So good! Work it!!” How’s that for a mood booster?! I need a recording of her voice on a down day. Seriously.


 Thankfully, this outfit ensemble was easy to style, an effortless combination of a nude sandal, black crop, highwaisted pencil, and trench for a typical windy Chicago day. I love how a crop paired with a high waisted pencil skirt can trick people into thinking you’re wearing a dress! And Nordstrom has some great choices including this Topshop crop that also works well with a white high waisted flare jean. Score. I’m more efficient when I can wear simple items multiple times. Speaking of, Nordstrom is my go to for the best shoes! The latter of which the husband is not a fan.  I’ve been talking a lot lately about investing in quality basics, for instance, not buying ten discounted shoes but two quality pairs of shoes. These Sam Edelman sandals are no exception. Run, don’t walk for that dress ala crop skirt and barely there heel. And try the quality basics speech for the husband and see if that garners you a new pair of sandals. 
At least I tried.
