"I'll Fly Away Oh Glory, I'll Fly Away"

Currently Listening to: Punk Goes Pop Pt. 3 

It has been crazy unseasonably warm here in the Windy City, and after scoring a slew of these Tucker for Target shirts at a very discounted rate (75% off!!), I couldn't resist dressing in a playful springy mood before the long haul of winter rolls on in. 

This look was initially inspired by one of the guests on the Rachel Maddow show about a week ago. She had the most darling little outfit put together similar to this, with a funky girly button up paired with a simple jumper creating a flirty yet sophisticated almost 1970's inspired look. And she had a great little pageboy bob haircut, which is what i would up getting done yesterday (pictures soon!). I was initially going to style this outfit with dark blue tights, but upon opening my new pair, I found a massive hole. So I improvised and went with bright pink. Such fun! It really makes the pink in the butterfly pattern pop!

Alright, I have to get ready for the Salon Series dinner at Bluebird. HOPE YOU ALL HAD A FANTASTIC WEEKEND! 
Button Up: Tucker for Target; Jumper: Ann Taylor outlet; Shoes: Thrifted; Tights: N/A


  1. Ooh, I can't wait to see your new haircut! And I love this outfit. I may just have to make a trip to Target to gather up one of these blouses for myself. :)

  2. before i read your post i was just thinking your hair looks excellent in these pictures! so pretty! i cant wait to see how you have it styled now!

  3. oh my gosh... i LOVE how the subtle pink in your top is picked up by the pink of your tights!!! i have some pink tights, and have no clue what to pair them with. now i have some ideas :)

  4. those tights rule. and it's awesome that you went to school with them. when i saw them play they were either still in high school or freshly out of high school. i can't remember, but i do remember feeling really freaking old.
