So evidently, I brought back some of that California weather back to Chicago. The day I flew home from some work travel, it was literally the same temperature at home as it was on the west coast. In February. WHAT?!
And then that same week, we hit highs near 70 degrees! Totally not normal for February, but I took full advantage and put together an outfit for a girls night. And I didn’t even have to wear a coat. *Fist pump!*
It was the perfect occasion to pull out my cold shoulder cutout sweater. The light ivory cream color was a nice contrast to the darker colors I reach for through the winter months. It’s literally the perfect sweater to wear when the temperature says summer, but the calendar says winter.
And can we talk about this darling bar necklace? It has Bryce’s name on it, and I love how simple, delicate and streamlined it is- goes with nearly any outfit. It’s from Etsy, and she makes so many other personalized options too!
I paired it with my trusty Madewell denim (via Poshmark, of course- buying secondhand and at a bargain is totally my thang…) along with these GORGEOUS perforated peep toe wedges in nude that I got with credit from Shopbop. Because when my toes can come out in February, I take every opportunity I can get. And I’ve gotta say, Sam Edelman makes some lovely shoes. These offer a nice boost of height, but are still supportive and easy to walk in while being incredibly cute.
Hoping these temps stick around…I’m SO over winter (and cold and flu season for that matter). Bring on spring!

I think I have that same bar necklace from Etsy! Funny enough…I ordered it with my wedding anniversary date on it, and probably a year later my husband and I realized that we remembered the date wrong so the necklace has the wrong day! How embarrassing! I still wear it because I like the design haha. I like your simple cream sweater with the peep toe booties. I just got some similar booties myself so this is definitely some outfit inspo! Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!
I love the bar necklace design…and it helps that on those the clasp doesn’t move on you like a necklace with a charm on it would! Thanks for stopping by Kristin.

Love how you styled this sweater. I’ve been on the fence about having my shoulders out, but you styled it simple, yet chic
Thanks so much Yaya!
