Weekend Wear

We took advantage of the beautiful Chicago weather this weekend and ventured out into the city with friends. Read on to see how we styled our Saturday {or Friday} nights!


Saturday night I had an engagement/housewarming party to attend for close friends. While the dress code was casual, I never miss an opportunity to dress up a bit. This blazer was perfect and gave me just the amount of coverage to bear the patio for a bit {it's still getting quite cold here at night}. I was in a rush, so I just ended throwing my hair up into a topknot {super easy and nicely fakes a "pulled together" look}. But the highlight of the outfit? Well let's just say, my "chains" were a big hit. I guess even I have a little thug in me :).

Little shout out to Dustin & Jess on the engagement... Congrats!

First things first...Caitlin, you will never have "a little thug" in you. That's not a "chain hang low"-esque chain. 

But I am a bit saintly;) I mean, three crosses in one outfit? I think that's a new personal record. I think crosses are currently my favorite new trend, considering I just bought a new cut-off tee with a washed-out cross print. I guess that means I should start attending Sunday Church more regularly {note to self!}.

Friday night I hit the {Chi} town with a bunch of my guy friends. I'm not one for getting very dressed up {especially when I'm the only girl in a group of guys}, which is why my "going out" outfit might be a little more dressed down than one might expect. As much as I LOVE heels - especially platform wedges - I usually stray from wearing them so I don't tower everyone in the bars. {Oh the perks of being 5' 9.5"...}. But, since I'm trying to transition from college bars with sticky floors to cleaner, more mature bars, I'm trying to transition my wardrobe as well. Hence the heels. I gotta say, I am enjoying the excuse to break out the half of my wardrobe that has previously been unused. 

Thanks to my boyfriend for trying being my photog:)
