Throwback CHIC


Hello, hello! We are back at our first shoot location, over 2 years later!! We really wanted to celebrate 2 years of posts, by going back to where it all began and seeing how our styles have evolved. I was 20 years old when we first began Chi-Town CHIC and was just starting to embrace being bolder in my style choices:

I really enjoyed playing with pops of color, which I still do in different ways. I have definitely sleeked-up my style, with more pieces that are work appropriate; especially ones that can easily go from day to night. In the look from 2017, I am wearing a look that could, very easily, be transformed into a work outfit, or a “grabbing dinner with friends” outfit. It’s structured from the waist down, but flowy from the top. With the existing pieces, it’s ideal for going out after work; the flowy blazer and blouse give it a light and airy effect, with colors that really compliment one another. However, the look can be refined for day time at the office. Jeans can be swapped out for fitted, black trousers and heels can be traded for flats, for the perfect work look. It’s always a good idea to have adaptable pieces for day and play in your arsenal, which is what I’ve really been learning as I enter the “real world.” Reflecting on your style can be a great way to see how you’ve changed, so I highly recommend it! I wonder what will change two years from now? Hmmmm…..
