Spring Whites



Happy Saturday, loves! When it comes to fashion looks I love most, a clean, crisp white look is it! Adding a touch of white to your look whether that be shoes, a bag or pant, instantly adds glamour to an ensemble. Spring is a rare season in Chicago, hence the snow on the ground in the picture above, but if it’s above freezing I’ll take it!

We headed out this morning to try on suits for the wedding for Kollin and stumbled upon the cutest stores. One of the stores was completely devoted to ties and Kollin was in heaven. Drawers and drawers of bow ties, pocket squares, and cuff links. You’d think Kollin was born in the wrong decade. He loves classic men’s looks and dressing up, which is rare in today’s age. He wears a suit to work everyday so I think we can blame him being a lawyer for a little bit of it, but I’m not complaining because the man looks good! 😍

Given that it is still a little cold out, I opted for this Lantern Sleeve Sweater and my new favorite loafers! I paired them both with a light wash jean and was hoping my lighter outfit would bring some warmth to the cold, cloudy weather! The look was the perfect amount of cozy yet chic. The lantern sleeve also adds a unique touch to the silhouette of your outfit while still being feminine. You could also pair it with a white pant or skirt for a monochromatic look with a great pump or sandal. Wishful thinking for warmer weather? Maybe! haha

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! You can grab my sweater and any other Shein purchase for an extra 15% off using code: Q1thecreativebriefblog15. I’ve also added some of my favorite more Spring appropriate white pieces below! xx

SHEIN 4 Love


Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! We’re keeping it casual this year with a living room picnic and champagne. Valentine’s Day hasn’t really ever been a holiday we celebrate thoroughly, but we definitely take some time to show each other some extra love! Mine comes in the form of Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked and champagne and Kollin’s includes gummies from Dylan’s Candy Bar and a bourbon lemonade cocktail. We’re snuggling up with Wrigley for a cozy night in and this Shein leopard print top is the perfect mix of cozy and fierce! Add a touch of red to your look - I opted for black jeans and booties to keep it simple, but you could wear this under a leather jacket or blazer for another option or simply pair with your favorite pair of joggers for a comfy night in!

Shein is running a Valentine’s Day sale, #SHEIN4Love, with up to 60% off and you can get an additional 15% off with coupon code SH4307! You can grab this top and some of my other favorites for a night out below! I would size up in all of these styles below since they run a bit smaller. I’m usually a small and ordered mediums! Thanks so much for reading! I hope everyone’s day is filled with love and new goodies! xx
