WCIU Valentine’s Day Segement

I have to say the team at WCIU You & Me This Morning could not have been more welcoming when I arrived yesterday. It’s always great to walk on set and be greeted with smiling faces and an interest in what I do. Yesterday’s segment was so much fun and it involved dressing for a special occasion.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it involves spending time with friends and family while enjoying a wonderful meal.  Since I’m cooking most of the day I like to be comfortable (skinny jeans, sweater, flats) and then I change into something nicer right before the meal is ready to be served.  Whether you’re slaving away in the kitchen or attending a holiday feast as a guest here are my top 5 looks for Thanksgiving.

Getting Ready for Fall

Screen shot 2013-09-03 at 8.59.42 PM

As much as I will miss the warm Summer months and all the fun excursions that Summer entails; along with many Chicagoans I am looking forward to my favorite season – Fall.  I would like to think that Fall is the beginning of the calendar season in a way.  Once the leaves start to change and those Pumpkin Spice lattes make their way back to the local coffee house I know it is time to put away the sandals and shorts.  It is time to plan some tailgating days with friends and unpack my favorite sweaters and leather jackets.  But wait, what am I forgetting in September that really gets me excited? New York Fashion Week!! I love seeing the trends for the next season, in this case Spring/Summer 2014.  It can be confusing to think about the next season when we have barely entered the first month of Autumn.  We live in a society of “what’s next?” so when you really think about it Fashion is just staying consistent with that mentality.  Based on the looks that are well received during the shows or back in the designers’ showrooms it will take months of reworking and actual production so Resort collections and SS14 (Spring/Summer) get delivered on time for when clients start going on vacations or migrate to second homes, etc.  The following is a list of some of my favorite designers and when they will be showing their collection at Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek which you can watch live streamed on or on once they have happened:
