Fresh White || Spring Inspired with UV



Spring is on the way!  Unique Vintage is amazing for seasonal preparedness, and today's powdery white frock could be worn a hundred different ways throughout the warmer months.  I can't imagine too many color pairings more classic than navy and white and it happens to be one of my favorites, so I styled 'Delores' with some extra special vintage accessories from Lady Jane Vintage.  

A few more fun winter looks are on the way, but enjoy today's Spring inspiration!

Flowers & Lights || Floral Embroidered Heart My Closet



Decadent embroidery for a lavish area... Heart My Closet, who I previously introduced last month, has quickly become one of my favorite classic brands.  Their designs are all unique, based solely on true vintage styles, and the quality and fit of each is undeniably elevated.  As sleek as a glove, today's beauty is the quintessential must-have piece for a girl's wardrobe, taking the LBD to the next level.  While she is simple and smart, a stunning floral-embroidered detail makes her equally feminine, glamorous, and original.  Check below for a discount code!

State Street & Randolph is essentially the center for 'old Chicago,' which is so apparent to walk around this area.  From this spot, you can see both the 20's national landmark marquee for the Oriental Theatre, and looking the opposite way, the Cadillac Palace Theatre.  Only a few blocks from here, you'll run into the most iconic of all, Chicago Theatre! Even McDonald's snatched up a stunning historical building, adopting the name-in-lights tradition with original sign holder...

Hampton Inn Motor Club Part 2 II Venturing Out



Today is the final recap of my stay at historic Hampton Inn Motor Club, as I first shared with you here.  This time, it's all about the facade and surroundings as we got acquainted with Hampton's prime location in the loop.  As if the night couldn't get any more magical, pretty snowflakes covered the world as we walked to the local Christmas Market... it felt like being in a movie, so perfect!  

I swooned for the 30's deco details adorning the entrance doors, and the original Motor Club plaque.  Taking only a few steps outside, we found ourselves walking right along the Chicago River in the heart of Chicago.  We walked passed iconic Chicago Theatre and watched the twinkling lights glisten in the falling snow, and sipped hot chocolate at Christkindlmarket.  Hampton Inn is an impeccable choice for a vacation or stay, but I would highly recommend a visit during the holidays, as it's location is right where all the magic happens.

Special thanks to Hampton Inn for hosting us!
