Weekend Pics: 28 hours in Chicago!

Talk about a month of traveling adventures: Dallas last week, Chicago this weekend, and I leave for NYC in 4 days! Even though I was only in Chicago for 2.5 seconds, okay 28 hours, I had a great time and cannot wait to go back. Here are some behind the scenes snaps from my #fashionablyfit weekend:

I arrived in Chi-town just in time to see the sunrise over Lake Michigan - what a sight. Although I was super sleepy, the Lady Foot Locker goodies in my room had me doing a mini fashion show (for myself) at 5:00am!

 Bianca, Bex, and I acting silly between workouts!

 Nike Free Run + 3 = the comfiest and cutest sneakers EVER!

Most of the fabulous #fashionablyfit team

In-flight reading: I almost died when I found out there was no internet on my flight but these babies kept me entertained

Hope your weekend was fantabulous! I'll be announcing the winner of the $100 LFL gift card tomorrow so stay tuned...

Daytime Style: A Pop of Neon

A pop of neon adds an exciting element to any daytime look: 
{American Apparel Chiffon Skirt // Diesel Utility Jacket -similar here & here // GAP Tank // Sam Edelman 'Gigi' Sandals // Foley & Corinna Bag - similar here // GAP Belt // Julep 'It Girl' Mani}

Chiffon minis are just so fun and girly especially in bright colors! Take a pop of neon and pair it with neutrals and basics for a simple, not too "out there" daytime look.  Also, a utility jacket is a top 10 closet must-have because it pulls together and tops off any outfit.

Mint + Neon Polka Dot Mani

Ever since my last polka dot mani I've been itching to do another one and because dots are oh so hot, I thought I'd share another fun idea! It's very Kate Spade-esque:

{UO Nail Polish in 'Smush' // Island Girl 'Brights' Pink // Island Girl Paint Pen - similar here}

Paint pens are life-savers when it comes to nail designs! If you don't have one, try using a toothpick or bobby pin to make the dots. When in doubt, go for an accent nail -- it always makes the mani stand out. Mint + neon pink make such a great combo! Speaking of neon accents, tomorrow's outfit post features an easy but super fun daytime pop of neon.

Psst... there are still a few days left to enter my Julep Maven polish giveaway!

Sunday Sunset

Last night was bittersweet because it was Mr. Pursuit's last night living in Los Angeles (for now)! We had a romantic dinner in Santa Monica with a view of the ocean and gorgeous sunset.

 { F21 Tank - similar here // GAP Distressed Jeans - similar here // ASOS Envelope Clutch // Baublebar Twitter Handle Necklace // Zara Basic Sandals - a few available on ebay (original price $49)}

Bought this tank over the weekend with the expectation to wear it now and through the Fall/Winter. Have you noticed that polka dots are everywhere? I can't get enough!

Chambray All Day

Oh chambray, I could wear you every day! Chambray & black pants make a simple, yet perfect outfit to pair with color-block shoes:
{ F21 Chambray Shirt - similar here & here // J. Crew Ponte Pants - similar here // T+J Designs Necklace, MNO.logie Clear Clutch // Sole Society 'Nikki' Heels // Julep 'It Girl' Nail Polish}

After I did my color-block mani on Sunday I walked into my room and realized they matched my Sole Society heels - too funny! This look is super easy and fun, especially with the clear clutch. Isn't it fab? I love starting with a simple outfit then adding accessories to spice it up!

Nude & Neon With a Touch of Spikes

 I've been loving neon & nude for awhile now and when Jeffrey Campbell's 'Puffer' finally came into my life, I new they would add the perfect touch to a casual look:

{GAP Striped Dolman Top - last seen here // J Brand Wax Coated Jeans from HauteLook - similar here // Jeffrey Campbell 'Puffer' Sandals - available in black // H&M Neon Clutch - similar here & here}

Jeffrey Campbells aren't usually my style but when I spotted the 'Puffer' a few months ago on a stylish girly at Starbucks, I pursued them instantly! Aren't they fab? Wax coated denim is super hot for Fall and I'm looking forward to pairing these with a pair of sexy heels for date night. The nude color definitely makes people take a second look!

Shoe Closet Envy: Kendall & Kylie Jenner

Last week I did a big shoe purge and it felt amazing! My shoe collection is constantly growing but my shoe closets are only SO big and a cleanse was necessary. When I was re-organizing I started dreaming about a large lovely space for my entire wardrobe.

Kendall & Kylie Jenner were recently featured on Million Dollar Closets and I'm loving their newly designed closets! Organization and design are serious closet game changers:
