Apr 2, 2015

Sweatshirt, vest, bag, and loafers (c/o): Barbour Lincoln Park (Visit 2042 North Halsted Street in Chicago or call 773-360-7926 to order!) You can also buy the vest at Nordstrom here // White jeans: Loft (last season, but similar here and here) // Lips: MAC Lady Danger // Watch: Daniel Wellington

Happy Thursday guys!

I think spring might FINALLY be in the air! I can’t really get my hopes up, because, you know…we’re really not safe until June here in the Midwest, but I definitely feel like things are looking up–so naturally, a celebration is order, which happens to be in the form of a $300 Nordstrom giveaway! Be sure to enter at the bottom of this post! 

Last week, Kelly and I got together with our friends at Barbour in Lincoln Park to style three different spring looks that you’re going to love. First up: a preppy pink sweatshirt and a spring vest! (Which goes great with white jeans–if you haven’t been to Loft lately, they have some great ones! I love these, these, and these.)

I didn’t really think there was such a thing as a spring vest until I saw this one. Then it occurred to me, clearly a puffy vest is just as necessary in the spring as in the fall. The temperatures are still a little unpredictable, chilly, and layers are absolutely necessary at all times. Why haven’t we all adopted this concept sooner? I love the striped lining as well, giving it a nautical feel, which I’ve been LOVING lately. (I think Kelly’s preppiness is rubbing off on me?) You can buy it at Barbour’s Lincoln Park location or by calling them at 773-360-7926, or online here. (It also comes in yellow!) This bag is also the perfect beach when the weather heats up, however, it looks much cuter with Noodle in it.

It’s also worth noting that each Barbour store carries something a little bit different! The Lincoln Park location is definitely my favorite, but you can find Barbour at Nordstrom, too! (Which you can totally take advantage of if you win the $300 giveaway below!)
